For SEK 2,000 I paid for it, I could not have gotten any better.
It has in the nine months I had it worked almost flawlessly, except one time when I had to run a reset when it refused to update their software.
2 points deduction for not able 4K60P YCbCr4: 4: 4, which Sony's website claimed it would do, but their support later confirmed that it does.
It has HDMI 2.0 and support for 4K, but then Sony skimped and used a pixel clock of 300MHz, it is limited to the YCbCr 4: 2: 0 in 4K60P. This also DN1060.
Good amplifier that provides very functional for money. Replaced a 5 year old Yamaha and the sound was just as good! plus that received support for 4k, mulitroom and Spotify. Highly recommended.
Updated to this when my almost 20 years old HK amplifiers started to smell very burned, and surround / TV amplifier, I think it is good. And it is modern with everything you could possibly want except atmos.
But a decisive argument (apart from price, I paid 2500 SEK) was reviewed in What HiFi and the positive comments about the stereo sound - as in my ears lacks commitment and precision. Given the price it is well ok, but ...
Perhaps it is too weak to push my front speakers (B & W Matrix 3S2), although I bi-Ampat them. HK-n passed this with flying colors even though it lacked support for bi-amp - but so was almost twice as heavy as well, which may say something about the current capacity. I'll probably try to bring in a couple of other speakers that are slightly worse, but also more easily driven.
Really good amplifier. Was looking for an amplifier for about 3 000 with support for AirPlay, Bluetooth and with better output than what my old Technics had SA160 (40W p channel).
My first reaction after I opened the package was that it was very well built and heavy. It felt really real.
The installation was easy by connecting a monitor or TV in HDMI output with a very simple interface that resembles Sony's standard interface they use in both PS and Bravia.
My positive reactions:
- Well built, robust and stylish. (My came with a few stickers on the front, which I actually thought lifted the entire look)
- Good sound quality for the price. A total of 95 W per channel in stereo mode (6ohm, 20Hz-20kHz)
- Many useful additional functions - user-network installation, Airplay with Spotify Connect.
- A very nice app to download the latest addition, which allows you to stream your local music to the amplifier without the need for third-party apps.
- Is one of the few in this price range that has Bluetooth 3.0 and APTX.
- Many outputs for each connection.
My negative reactions:
- The remote is simple which is both positive and negative. I miss a few buttons, for example, a button for as simple as switching between channels instead of having to jump. There are e.g. no presets for bluetooth and I must go back to the amplifier to set this, or use the mobile app.
- Had preferred a 2.1 A or 2.4 A USB port on the front so that you can charge your phone without having to wait three times as long compared with a standard mobile charger.
- No stereo jack (3.5mm on the front for example headphones).
A small lift from my old Onkoy HDMI receiver in the same price range. Plenty to get 1080p HDMI and Dolby Plus Chromecast. The only thing I can complain about is why you go from the HDMI1 HDMI 2, etc. menu and remote control and instead call them other things that should resemble machines you should relax. One HDMI can not be accessed using the shortcut keys on the controller, so you must develop a menu. Same if you use Logitech Harmony.
I am pleased with this receiver.
