I bought the STR-DN1000 as an upgrade to my old Yamaha receiver that didn't have audio decoding through HDMI which I really needed since I've recently added a couple additional HDMI components to my set-up and needed HDMI switching. I bought it based on reviews of sound quality (anyone saying this amp has anything less than great sound doesn't know what they're talking about or doesn't have their amp set up correctly!), price, and features (4X HDMI being the most important). I am relatively plea...

I have had this receiver since Aug. 1, 2009, and am very happy with it. It is missing some features like S-VHS inputs but none that I care about. I purchased it to use with HDMI devices in a 5.1 setup in one room. It works great for me and I highly recommend it.PLUSES:* Excellent audio.* Good GUI that is easy to use, but you must read the manual first and consult it as you go (at least I had to).* Good readable front and on-screen display with options for what is displayed while unit is operatin...

For what it is, a mid-range priced receiver, it's really good. Are there better receivers? Sure. Am I an audio-phile (or whatever)? No. Can I tell the difference between loud-and-distorted and loud-and-clear? Yes. Am I going to drop more than a grand for a receiver? No. Am I going to spend the least amount possible for the basics in a receiver? No. Am I happy with this receiver and it's performance? Yes; very much so.The context-I have a medium to small size living room, 14 x 19 feet, ...

Sony STR-DN1000 7.1-Channel Audio Video Receiver (Black)I purchased this on August 4 as an upgrade to a receiver that was not capable 1080p pass through. I received it and hooked it up on Friday August 14. I connected a Sony PS3 and a TiVo HD using Philips HDMI Gold cables Version 1.3a. I used the same type cable to connect to a Vizio 1080p True HD TV. I got sound but no picture.I checked the settings on the TV and the receiver to make sure it was on all the right settings. I even tested th...

Just got this receiver on Thursday. Installed it yesterday. I wanted to purchase a receiver that did not look like EVERY receiver on the market. This was definitely the receiver for me. The piano black finish looks great. Very clean. It goes great with the Harmon Kardon Speakers (HKTS 18) which also have a piano black finish to them. Overall, the whole system looks great...and sounds just as good. Audio is very crisp. Dolby HD and DTS HD sound great!Not only does the reciever put out gr...

optical only for composite video
 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) the optical audio is only assignable to composite video inputs, they can't be assigned to any hdmi ports, which sucks. The HDMI video quality is great though, blue is sharp.the best video quality i have seen to date. the piano black color is still cheap plastic, can't they design something with aluminum or something like apple?

I bought this receiver to replace my beloved, 10-year old Sony STR-DE925 which sounded magnificent and still worked nicely after ten years. I had to replace it when I bought a Blu Ray player; the 925's DTS chipset could not properly decode the 1.5Mbps DTS bit stream, resulting in garbled center channel dialog. I was heart-broken.First I tried to go on the cheap and bought a STR-DH500 and hated the sound. Nowhere near as full sounding as my old 925 and very lean on features.Which led me to the ST...

I'm a life-long, loyal Sony customer. I rolled the dice buying less than Sony's ES line of A/V receivers for the first time, and I wholly regret it. I bought this model mostly for its price (on Amazon), its glossy black chassis that matches my XBR5 and PS3, and because I wanted HDMI switching.But this receiver looks better when it's turned off than when it's all lit up. The LED display is very cheap looking and poorly laid out, behind that smoked plastic front panel. The chassis is also fairly s...

Get the Pioneer VSX-919AH-K instead.
 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) Got this thing on Saturday. It sure is pretty. Got it all set up, speakers calibrated, inputs renamed, etc. then went to try a DVD. That's when I discovered that neither my Oppo DVD nor my Panny BD player appeared to be attached. Needless to say they were, the receiver was just broken. I wasted 2 hours with the clowns at Sorny tech support and they finally told me to ship...
