Are you sensing what the culprit of the issue is? Yep...Read more ›
I also purchased this receiver direct from SONY expecting great things. I researched and thought the negative reviews were most likely people that either didn't know how to use it, or received a LEMON of a unit. Anxiously looked forward to setting the unit up and listening / watching. Got it set-up and used it for about 6 hours. Turned the unit off and went to dinner. Came back after a few hours and no picture displayed while using the unit in pass thru mode (the receiver) was not turned on. Before contacting SONY, I double checked my connections and didn't find the problem. After contacting SONY using live chat, and the next day using their on-line forum, (there are 38 pages of complaints concerning this very problem on the forum under 2 topics). Their recommendations to me were to first turn the receiver off, unplug the power cord to reset the device and low and behold it worked. However, I never got an answer to my on-line chat question , "What caused this to happen?" The next day I went to the forum where you can receive some timely assistance from SONY Tech's. I was advised that the problem sounded like a loose or bad HDMI cable...not the culprit. I was then advised change out the cable box (sorry, but no), change the HDMI cables (I did), complete a firmware update (I did), re-route the HDMI cable (I did), turn the Samsung TV on and let it warm up first (10 minutes)..(pretty hard to do with the HDMI cable running as pass thru) then turn the unit on. SONY Techs say the problem is only with SAMSUNG Smart TV's. I was then advised to turn off the ANYTIME function on the TV. I did, and they also recommend turning off the Smart TV feature. I spent over $60 changing out the HDMI cables hoping the 1040 would work. It didn't.Read more ›
Great news first you can stream your music files on Android Phone over wifi(like Airplay though not as good) using AirTwist(from DoubleTwist for 5$). More on this below in the File Steaming section.
I am a first time buyer of A/V receiver. I researched a lot about the receivers for about a few weeks i was actually looking at the DN1030 and I had the following wishlist of features in the order of priorities.
1. Builtin/Cheap Wifi(~20$)
2. Stream Audio from Android/Airplay
3. USB In front for FlashDrive with Charge Power >500ma
4. 2 HDMI OUT
5. 2 Digital Audio In
6. MHL in front(powered HDMI in other words)
7. ARC(Audio Return Channel)
8. Passthrough Input Change while in Standby
9. Preout (totally optional as I know it adds to price significantly. NOT available on DN1040)
10. High HDMI Count
Due to price and desired features limitation my research was focused mostly on Sony, Onkyo and Yamaha. The top contenders were Onkyo and Sony with Onkyo leading with its TX-NR616 ($349 + 25$ Wifi Dongle) and Sony DN1030 was next.
DN1040 sounded good but it was too expensive that I did not even consider it in the features matrix. Luckily last week I saw a deal on Rakuten.com (formerly Buy.com) that was only 449 for DN1040. I checked my feature list and all the top 8 parameters as well as number 10 were a go on this one and added Bluetooth which was not even in my feature list. So I pulled the trigger immediately. And boy am I glad that I did!
(Add 6/10) One other important reason why i bought this is because the STR-DN1030 came out on the top in the mid range receivers in the CNET Review last yr and many other websites recommend it.Read more ›
