      Want more wireless features

      By Apotheosis

      from Logan, UT

      Comments about Sony Black 7.2 Channel Network AV Receiver:

      I can stream music to it from my computer over my wireless network which is awesome, but I want to beable to stream video to it as well from my computer. I don't own blueray or dvd player. I play everything on my computer and while I want to build a media computer in the future for my entertainment system I don't have the money for that yet. It would be cool if I can hide my media computer in a closest and have it stream all my media wirelessly to my sony receiver. I would like all video formats to be supported if possible. Also i like the Logitech programmable universal remotes which use a form of wifi instead of inferred to control devices. Make it so your sony receivers can be controlled via wi-fi with the logitech remotes please!!!! I think some simple software updates to this receiver will make all this possible. Would be the greatest receiver on earth if you made all these features possible.

      DN-1040 Receiver

      By Woodrat

      from Paris, TN

      Comments about Sony Black 7.2 Channel Network AV Receiver:

      Great receiver for my home entertainment system. Only have my F-7000 hooked up so far but even with just those two speakers EVERYTHING sounds much better than the small home theater system I had before. My biggest problem prior to hooking this system up was I couldn't discern the vocal part of many shows on TV and on movies. I ended up using the TV set speakers so I could understand what was being said. Not with these speakers and the DN-1040 everything is crystal clear. I still have a set of B3000's and a set of B1000's to hook up as my back and surround speakers respectively. I'll let you know later how that turns out but we are trying to wire internally in the house and that's going to be a bit of a chore.

      This is the first Sony A/V receiver I've owned and after getting it setup I don't know why I waited so long. It really packs a Punch for the Price point. Great Features and works very well with my other Sony products. Buy it you won't be sorry.

            The all in one Receiver that just works

            By tcviper

            from Netherlands

            Comments about Sony Black 7.2 Channel Network AV Receiver:

            After having owned a STR-DA5600ES for years it was time to search for an upgrade and usually I would only go for another ES series from Sony but when I saw the specs of the 1040 and the addition of Airplay plus the amazing new GUI I was sold immediatelly. Now, a month later, I have to say I simply love the device, everything just works it is fast, intuitive and plays everything you throw at it. Doesn't matter if its through Airplay (IOS), DLNA or vTuner or the Sony Entertainment Network it all just works and that is exactly what I was looking for after all those years. Thank you so much for this Sony, great job!
