Sony STR-DN1070 review

 

How hot are you on "the latest and greatest" versus "tried and tested"?

The Sony STR-DN1070 proves itself a worthy all-arounder with a dynamic performance in both music and movies. Its six HDMI ports offer compatibility for the latest 4K sources. Useful features include multiroom streaming, three separate powered speaker...

Unlike many receivers at its price, the Sony doesn't support Dolby Atmos or DTS:X surround formats. Sony's wireless multiroom system isn't as compelling as Yamaha's.

Lack of Atmos is more than eclipsed by excellent sound quality, making the Sony STR-DN1070 one of the best receivers at this price.

Consumer review by: bobhoward9 (cnet.com)

Defective unit, but the bits that worked, worked well

 

Bought based on the CNET review and the sound quality was really terrific for the aspects that actually worked. Unfortunately, never could get the center speaker to work (multiple re-wires and verified my speaker was working on another receiver). WiFi...

Great sound quality for the portions that worke

No center channel, no WiFi, intermittent drop-outs
