I upgraded from last year's STR-DN1040, which was also a very good mid-range receiver. This year's STR-DN1050 is an improvement in almost every single way; it has additional customizable presets, an on-screen display (OSD) volume level overlay, and amazing sound/tonal quality. I only have three complaints: the remote is too simplified, the volume and input selector knobs feel lightweight/cheap, and there are still no primary zone pre-outs for those of us that might want to combine this with an external amp down the road. I have a 7.2 Polk Monitor III setup, and the towers can take 200+ watts each to achieve simply amazing sounds. But, this is still the best mid-range AVR of 2014, that can compete with receivers that cost twice as much.

This AV receiver is able to reproduce a excellent sound. come with wifi and Bluetooth and lots of other feathers. setup is easy and gui interface is good. I like this receiver except the following issue. But I found it has some issues, hope Sony can fix it through updating firmware. 1.The critical issue is HDMI pass through standby, it actually doesn't go to standby. I found the box is still heating up at this standby mode, measured with a power meter, the power consumption is about 40 W at HDMI pass through standby mode which is almost the normal operation power. So the receiver is never go to standby at this mode, this will reduce the box life time. 2.Another issue is turn of TV power will turn off AV receiver power. This is not reasonable, why I can not turn off TV while I listen to music? This issue has a workaround which is setting HDMI control off. But this setting disable all HDMI control related function. For this issue, Denon AVRS900W doing better. It uses a "power off" menu option to select whether turn off the box power when turn off TV power.

Would give this 5 stars, but only fair AM coverage

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony 7.2 Channel 4K Black A/V Receiver:

Okay, I love this product. Great smart receiver, and great sound. I don't use the AM and FM antennas it comes with, but with one of the top-of-the-line outdoor AM/FM HD antennas on the market. My antenna can receive very distant AM and FM stations, but it requires a good tuner to play it on. Now I know that it's not the fault of the antenna for not getting the distant AM channels (and about 95%, not 100% of FM), for I did extensive research. I also know from what I read that AM is not really a priority for pretty much all companies who make A/V receivers. FM is great, but not perfect. I guess the excuse is that the reason AM is often overlooked is because not too many listen to AM in their homes, but that doesn't help people like me who spent a lot of money on both this and an expensive outdoor AM/FM HD antenna and are enthusiasts. To me not spending enough time on any feature isn't an excuse. I still have plenty of other options, like the Pandora and TuneIn smart features and the SiriusXM radio I have hooked up to it, but I request that all future A/V receivers by Sony have the best AM and FM while still being smart with features like Pandora and TuneIn. They future models should remain 4K and 3D compatible too. Adding SiriusXM Internet Radio and iHeart Radio as part of the smart features would be nice too.

A very good hardware with limited connectivity

By 

from Canada

Comments about Sony 7.2 Channel 4K Black A/V Receiver:

This receiver is like a world champion athlete without legs. A very good hardware with no or limited connectivity is useless. It has a USB inlet but you cannot connect it to a PC. Wireless card is 2.4 MHz and so slow that you cannot transmit high quality signal through it. The wired network card is not even at 10 Mbps, so is even slower than wireless. Hey guys, you shall put some connectivity to a device if you want to give the possibility to be used. You know? The World does not gravitates only around HDMI and BRAVIA, there are other things out there, go out and see.

Best money spent in more than 30 years

By 

from Surrey, BC Canada

Comments about Sony 7.2 Channel 4K Black A/V Receiver:

I did not need a new receiver but my current one was about ten years old. I cannot say enough about the sound scape that this unit builds around you. It literally surrounds you with sound like you have never heard. The stereo tracks are split into 7 channels. Sony's engineers have nailed it with this one. Wow! I have started listening to my entire collection all over again.

Love the IP control

Comments about Sony 7.2 Channel 4K Black A/V Receiver:

I purchased home automation software. This Sony amplifier, combined with my Sony TV and numerous non-Sony components are super high tech. Everything is controlled via wifi. I love it. Sounds great too. I haven't really tested the high fidelity aspect much. Giving five stars because it was cheap relative to the high-tech features it carries.

Great Value for the price

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony 7.2 Channel 4K Black A/V Receiver:

I purchased the STRDN1050 to replace my previous Sony Receiver the DH800 which I purchased in 2009 (which was working perfectly). I wanted some of the newer features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Airplay which have been released since my last receiver purchase. Everything is as expected if not better so far. I'm having a blast with all the new features. I'm using this receiver with my Sony KDL70850B which is also a new purchase and I'm very please with both. I love easy to use menu system and auto setup. I'm a home theater enthusiast but I'm not a even a hundred thousandaiire. So a receiver that packs this much punch for the price means a lot to me. I'm looking forward to enjoying this receiver for another 5-7 years at least.

So Far So Good

By 

from San Diego, CA, USA

Comments about Sony 7.2 Channel 4K Black A/V Receiver:

I just purchased this receiver so time will tell. So far so good. Solid. Simple set up. It's working flawlessly. The only flaw I see it's the lack of a USB port in the back. I ran a fiber optic HDMI cable from the TV to the receiver. As you know the HDMI connector is powered via a USB connection. The only USB connector on this unit is on the front panel. Unfortunately, the cable is too short. I worked around this by hooking up a USB charger

Comments about Sony 7.2 Channel 4K Black A/V Receiver:

Good receiver, powerful and clear. Set up is relatively easy. Remote is stangely designed and hard to figure out. 2nd zone works off of rear channel speakers instead of separate zone. Not a problem if you have only five speakers or don't need the second zone. Other than those issues. I like the receiver.

Comments about Sony 7.2 Channel 4K Black A/V Receiver:

I bought this receiver after owning an older Sony home theatre system. About me, I have average tech knowledge, 49" 4K Sony, Sony Bookshelf center, front and left. 2 Sony core Subs, and 2 Yamaha in ceiling speakers. The setup is easy along with connecting to wifi and registers all apps. The auto calibrator works great. Although I did a tinker a bit after calibration because I like center a little louder. Bluetooth and AirPlay work great with my iPhone, Ipad and Mac in the office which is very nice for parties. It can get as loud as you want, I've barely needed to get it past half of its full potential. The settings save for each preference per input, my Blu Ray is set to theatre mode while Directv works better with HD DCS. Nice feature. Remote is simple and user friendly which is better than most of the Competetion. The one complaint. I have, and hope it can be fixed with a software update, is that I am unable to listen to a different source while still watching another..example, I like playing my PS4 while listening to a podcast with Blutooth, or listening to music while watching a game on satellite. Sony please fix that, my older receiver did it, wish this one would too. Overall, great receiver, sounds clean, easy to operate. Would recommend it to anyone. As long as that one drawback I stated earlier isn't a deal breaker.

I don't remember the last time I have been so pleased with a purchase. The installation was a breeze and the on screen menus is a blessing. I was finding new features on a daily basis just exploring on my own. Then I went to the website and checked out the owners manual and found more features. The listening experience is amazing. The sound is incredible.
