Excellent receiver, the best in value
 
Bought this receiver after having to convince the sales person in the store that it was available for store pick up. Set-up was pretty straighforward. Connected all my speakers with a 7.1 set-up. Used HDMI cables for my Blu ray, PS3 and 3D cable box. Left my Xbox and WII connected straight to the TV as is. Set-up Network connection via wired LAN after WPS from my router failed to connect. Updated software after clearing the receiver as instructed on start-up. Set speaker settings by autocalibrat...

Very happy with Sony and this receiver
 
I am very happy with this receiver and Sony products, thus far. This was to replace an entry level mid-1990's Kenwood receiver. I chose the STR-DN1030 primarily because of the Networking & Airplay features. I am aware there are other brands with better review and specs, but this fit my budget and needs. I have it attached to a Vizio Plasma, PS3, Wii, Scientific Atlanta DVR, Sony center speaker CN-5000, Sony SSF-7000 main speakers and a Velodyne VX-11 subwoofer. I found the audio to be much...

Very good prodcut
 
This is a solid product. The sound is great and the image solid. The menus are not that great. Also, it is very slow when switching inputs. That last point keeps it from getting a 5 stars for me. The wi-fi capability is awesome but the updates are so slllllooooowwww. Finally, it has two component inputs, something I needed. Most input are assignable so you can mix and match to your particular set-up. If you are looking for a solid no hassle all around amp, this is it. One more thing, when will ...

Sony STR-DN1030
 
This reciever is simply amazing. Sounds fantastic. I was worried about the HDMI swithing (on any brand) but it does fine. Takes about 5 seconds. It was a fairly simple set up just so many features that I havent made it through them all. Love the GUI interface and the sound optimizng feature works great. I have a 16x21 room with 5 Bose cube speakers and a seperate powered Yamaha subwoofer. the ceiling peaks at 25 feet and it adjusted the sound perfectly and with no base traps everything is crysta...

Network & GUI a big disapointment
 
What's great about it: Price What's not so great: Network can't do playlists You will find out you've made a big mistake buying this product only after you get it home and try to use it. It cannot play playlists via the network -- although the manual and GUI would lead you to believe it can. Only after hours with Sony's tech support did they finally admit that playlists work only from the USB port. This makes network connectivity effectively useless. The GUI interface is also pathetically prim...

Great features with a few big caveats
 
I bought this Sony to replace a previous Sony 5.1 receiver that was over 10 years old and bit the dust due to a lightning strike. First impression on taking the STRDN1030 out of the box was that it was a bit lighter than the previous, older Sony. An old wise man once told me that the way you gauge the quality of an amplifier is weight: the heavier the better. So, I was already "on guard" but assumed that 10 years of progress in design might have made a better and yet lighter amplifier. This un...

Amazing System
 
What's great about it: Sounds Quality, Bluetooth Built-in, Features, Great Price, BraviaSync Integration What's not so great: GUI Setup Ugly, HDMI Switching After talking it over with a few of my audiophile friends and my father-in-law who repairs receivers professionally, I landed on this Sony STRDN1030. It is feature rich at an amazing price. In the store, the Best Buy sales guy and a Geek Squad rep immediately attempted to talk me out of my choice and into a Denon receiver. I am not sure wh...

Great Receiver, Terrible Company
 
Great receiver with a ton of features. Too bad the surround channels developed a problem only two months after I purchased it.On instruction from Sony, I brought the unit to my local authorized repair store. The local shop was unable to repair because of the unavailability of spare parts for this model. Sony agreed to replace the system instead and instructed me to ship it to their facility in Texas.I asked if they could ship the replacement unit first and I would then...

Poor user interface makes this unusable
 
What's great about it: Sound is good What's not so great: The interface makes this receiver cumbersome and hard to use. In my book there are 2 characteristics equally important in technology. These are, the quality of the results and just as important how the user interacts with the technology. The quality of the sound is decent but the user interface is cumbersome and problematic. Exchanged this back for a Denon AVR-1913. Also, the Denon AVR-1613 would be fine too. andAbout me...
