Fabulous sound!
The setting up was smooth sailing and had the unit up and working within an hour... including wiring the speakers in! The sound is well balanced and fabulous both for classical and rock/pop.

I haven't been able to use it too much yet, but I was able to set it up and run it through some tests with music and Dolby Atmos videos. It sounds great and was very easy to set up.

Best bang for the buck
Research told me this set was the best bang for the buck and they weren’t kidding. Right now I have a set of Atmos set up the AVR handles them expertly only thing I hate was I had to sacrifice my back surround speakers but you can phase the front surround to make up the difference. Also the Upscale is very good as well if you have 4 K. I definitely made the right choice I could have spent muck more and got much less.

Not compatible with Dolby Atmos in DD+
I’m a IG fan of Sony, All my TV’s, 4K blu-ray players, headphones and portable music players are from Sony. But this unit disappointed me like no other.

While this decode all audio formats without any issues when played from the Blu-ray player, literally unusable when streaming - ie when Dolby Atmos comes packaged in Dolby Digital Plus. It plays fine as long as you don’t pause or stop. When you pause or stop a really loud popping/cracking noise comes from the speakers.

I use all high quality cables from Audioquest and monster and Kilmerkable for speakers. I actually upgraded my speaker and all cabling again to see if the issue go away. But it didn’t.
On a quick google search revealed that I’m not alone on this. I tried to get help from Sony support and community but no one has the answer.

Everything works fine except the video. My television repeatedly turns on and off with this unit only. NO CUSTOMER SUPPORT!!!!!!! I either need to buy another brand home theater unit or replace a perfectly fine TV.

I believe Sony is the best brand,
I’ve owned other brands like Harmon kardon and onkio and pioneer and Ken wood, but Sony has always been the best quality, and has always lasted the longest. I own the str dn 850, but used to have a DN 1030, till lightning struck it, but no repair shops really exist, however I wish that Sony would make affordable 8 ohm units rather than making them 6 ohms. I have to turn my unit up more than halfway to get good volum, other than that my product is amazing and would t trade it for the world. Hopefully Sony has plans to fix their balancing and calibrations on newer models to come. If my DN 850 were an 8 ohm receiver I would have no complaints ! I will always stand with Sony when it comes to home audio.
I also love that you stick with the slick design for most models. However I’m in love with the design of the DN 1030 because you could use a knob to tune the unit rather than pushing buttons,

I think Sony should add hdmi inputs to the front
And stick with a design similar to the DN850, and combine it with the DN1030!!! Hopefully Sony will read my request and they’ll make a design that is like both those models!!

Sony I believe definitely out lasts most other brands!!!

Great sound quality for home cinema and stereo too
I would have like to buy an amplifier, that has builtnin chromecast and also has good sound quality in stereo listenning. (We use 80% in stereo mode and 20% in cinema mode).
However there is no built in internet radio and Deezer, but not needed, because there can be useable within chromecast and bluetooth as well from mobile phone. The competitor amplifiers have these apps with joking usability, so I do not miss them at all.

The sound optimizer is feelable to vol.12 and it is enough to listen the silent music with well enjoyable sound quality without disturbing the neighbours. If you buy good cables and/or source it is remarkable on the sound quality.

Great AV Receiver
I just spent the morning marking and sizing all the speaker cables, video cables, etc. Connected everything based on the Manual. Watched a couple good You Tube videos on how to program this unit. Spent about an hour programming. And everything sounded and looked great the first time I tested a Dolby Surround Movie! Next I’m purchasing the Sony 4K 65’ model 950H Smart TV w/ HDMI eARC!

What devices do you recommend to link your TV to a set of headphones? What do I need to do, so I can listen to TV with wireless headphones
Elizabeth F on Jul 7, 2019
  All you'll need is a pair of Bluetooth headphones. The receiver will transmit to them directly.
Does this unit support gapless playback?
A shopper on Jan 26, 2019
  The manufacturer doesn't mention this in his literature on the unit.
Am I able to pay and pick up?
A shopper on Oct 9, 2017
  Currently, this product is available online only. No in-store pickup is available at this time.

Thank you,
