The editors didn't like

  • It's somewhat expensive and more than what most buyers need. The included remote is cluttered with buttons
  • Sure to put-off non-techies. And Sony's automatic speaker calibration wasn't quite perfect in our listening environment.
  • Disjointed network/app control
  • Poor zone 2 integration
  • Needlessly complex remote
  • Large
  • Bulky design

  • At the end of my time with the Sony STR-DN1040 I am surprised and happy by what I found. More and more of the content we consume comes from a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Getting it from there to your AV system is not nearly as easy as it could be. By...

  • Bluetooth, WiFi, and AirPlay, Smooth user interface, Great sound quality,
  • Disjointed network/app control, Poor zone 2 integration
  • There was a lot that I liked about the STR-DN1030 when I reviewed it last year, like built-in WiFi, Bluetooth, and AirPlay, but a few big caveats held it back. Namely, the sound quality was only so-so, the user interface was awful, network control app...

  • If you're looking for a premium home theater receiver that delivers superb sound and is jam-packed with features, the Sony STR-DN1040 is the best choice -- if you don't mind its large, bulky exterior. The receiver delivers excellent 7.2-channel audio, lot...

  • Exciting, punchy, dynamic sound, Layers of clear and subtle detail, Good with music, Plenty of wired and wireless connectivity, Easytouse interface
  • No Bluetooth or builtin Spotify app
  • The Sony STR-DN1040 ticks all the right boxes when it comes to network connectivity, and it's a dab hand at playing stereo music too. But when it comes to multichannel soundtracks, this AV receiver is one of the best we've heard at this price thanks to...

  • Der Sony hinkt in puncto Ausstattung der Konkurrenz hinterher, weshalb es nicht zum Spitzenplatz langt. Nichtsdestotrotz ist er ein Receiver mit Top-Klang und zeichnet sich zudem durch eine unkomplizierte Bedienung aus.   Florian Goisl, Udo Ratai Technisc...

  • Mooi, subtiel en strak ontwerp, Redelijk compact voor zijn klasse en vermogen, Mooi vormgegeven en duidelijke grafische interface - daardoor ook zeer geschikt voor "minder technische mensen", Uiterst rappe respons van het interface, Geïntegreerde WLAN, Ge
