          Comments about Sony STR-DN840 Black 7.2 Channel Network AV Receiver:

          Excellent receiver at a great price! I needed to upgrade my receiver and especially needed more HDMI ports. After doing research I chose this Sony and I am very pleased. It has 6 HDMI inputs so I have several to spare with all my equipment and video game systems connected. The sound quality is excellent! Set up was easy. My only difficulty was connecting my speakers as the connections on the back are very close together and I had difficulty maneuvering my fingers and the wires to get them locked in place. I really like the Bluetooth capability.

            I replaced my 2 yr old Pioneer Receiver, was not happy with it.

            I'm thrilled with this unit. Wow! It's like having a new TV again.

            The setup was straight forward and the sound I'm getting now is fantastic!

            It's like enjoying my TV all over again.

            I'm very happy with it.

            I can see all my NAS (network storage) from it and play music from them. Still exploring more and more of the features!

            Great bang for the buck!

            Very very happy I got this unit!

              Just finished setting it up--A BREEZE! Performs BEAUTIFULLY, doing everything Sony/CNET claim: EASE OF SET UP--TV/BRAY/WIRELESS/NETWORK/STREAMING--BTOOTH&AIRPLAY; GREAT SOUND...all at a reasonable price.
              Speaker Calibration was impressive--makes Polk system sing/rumble/rattle/shake.
              Sony, make it perfect, next model-upgrade make it Backlit Remote.

              Comments about Sony STR-DN840 Black 7.2 Channel Network AV Receiver:

              This receiver was to replace my old Kenwood VR-6060 receiver. The setup was mostly straight forward. Some of the translations in the manual; front upper, vs surround, vs rear surround were not always clear. But when auto-calibrate wouldn't work, that was enough of a clue that the surround was not properly formatted in the receiver.
              I enjoy the digital processing, definitely a step up from the Kenwood. The onscreen display is hokey, but now that it is set up, who cares.
              There are two issues that greatly disappoint me though. First, the system protection kicks in at only 20-30 Watts output. This is not what I expected from Sony and a receiver rated at between 95 and 160 W/ch. I've double checked wires and connectors with no improvment. Anything beyond a fairly subdued volume is going to trigger the system protection after a few minutes, do not try to rock out in 2-channel stereo. The second disappointment, is what I would consider a mis-characterization of the receiver's capabilities by Sony. I thought with the internet connectivity, I would be able to stream content like Pandora from the internet. Sony calls this capability SEN or Sony Entertainment Network. The manual says that the user "may" have to register to use this feature. The reality is you have to "subscribe", for a monthly fee, to access whatever the SEN offers.
              Others have mentioned the setup menu coming on every time you start the amp. I don't know why it keeps going back to this menu, even after you complete the setup. About the time I was thinking about boxing the amp up, it just quit. I don't know why.
              I do like the flexability and mix of HDMI, optical, coax and analog inputs. The Bluetooth linked to my phone flawlessly. I do wish the Sony BRAVIA worked with Panasonic's VESA.... oh well.
              I think I'll upgrade some other componenets and then move this receiver to a smaller room, so the limited power output isn't an issue.

                I am using the product with a 2.1 system. It is hooked up to my satellite, blu Ray DVD. Gaming system and internet via hdmi and wifi. Everything works flawlessly. Apple airplay and bluetooth are a great feature.

                      I bought this to replace an older SAMSUNG. It is over priced for its capabilities. Problems connecting non-sony components. Lack of VIDEO links to ANY services is a major negative. this is the second and last time sony is going to disappoint me.
