I bought the STR-DN2010 to work with a new Sony 3D KDL-40HX800 Bravia LCD and a Sony 3D BDP-S570 Bravia Blu Player. It does a lot of new things like decoding SACD multichannel audio from the BDP-S570. But some things it does not do well at all.

For instance the highly touted "automatic" audio calibration. The STR- DN2010 algorithm mangles the high frequency response of my JBL Pro speakers making them screech and it does not seem to hear my Velodyne subwoofer well at all! It boosts the subwoofer level the maximum +10 dB no matter how loud I turn it up. After checking to see if there was a new firmware release, I gave up on the "auto" calibration and used my old Joe Kane HDTV calibration DVD.

Next the STR-DNB2010 interprets between track changes from the BDP-S570 as a total loss of input, causing the KDL-40HX800 into thinking that it lost communications with the STR-DN2010, switching the audio over to the TV speakers instead of the normal STR-DN2010. The Bravia sync handshaking with both the BDP-S570 and the KDL-40HX800 TV are rough at best.

Finally, the network interface is broken whenever the STR-DN2010 is placed in standby. It takes rerunning the manual network setup over again to restore the Internet connectivity.

All this points to the need for the Sony product engineers to clean up the firmware so this product does not seem like a Beta tester's nightmare.

I bought this receiver to replace my Sony STR-DA5300ES receiver to get better Bravia Sync support and have more HDMI ports. Unfortunately I found major problems with the firmware that is forcing me to return it. The receiver intermittently goes into mute without any reason. The Bravia Sync which is one of the main reasons I bought the receiver has bugs in synchronization and discovery with other Sony products that are supposed to support this feature. In addition, the receiver runs very hot in standby presumably because the 4 port Ethernet switch is on all the time. To be fair, this receiver has a nice design and if the problems are fixed, it would a good value for money. Unfortunately, Sony is notorious for being slow to bring out updates or abandoning the product once is it in the market. I'll be checking the reviews in a few months to see if some of these issues have been fixed.

I was a little skeptical about purchasing the SONY STR-DN2010 after seeing some of the reviews and the fact that SONY discontinued it, but considering the price and the amount of high-end features, I went for it. This receiver has worked perfectly, and the surround sound and video quality is truly unbelievable (at least in my living room). I have had the unit for a month, and have not had any issues. Recently connected it to an inexpensive wireless bridge and was able to connect it to my DLNA computer - and can pull music, pictures and video from the unit. It takes a while to setup - and you must read the manual, but it is not difficult and the results are outstanding. To be honest, I've never experienced better audio and video quality (all HDMI components) than with this unit. I would buy it again if I had the choice!

I almost didn't purchase this receiver based on several bad reviews. I'm so happy I pulled the trigger and ordered anyway. So far I believe I've used every feature of this amp and all have worked flawlessly. Many of the complaints in the negative reviews were addressed by setting the amp up correctly which I was able to do in under 20 minutes. I've owned 3 HD amps so far and several 5.1 amps before that and can attest that the ES circuitry borrowed from the 3600ES in this amp sounds as good as any $800+ Onkyo, Denon, or Pioneer I've owned. In all honesty, if it weren't for the people not understanding the product and writing bad reviews, the price may have stayed near the $800 MSRP and I wouldn't have paid that for this amp. But even at twice what I ended up paying, I think this amp is a bargain. I've been streaming 1080P videos, pictures, and of course lots of music from 3 different computers in my household.. all with no issue whatsoever! For the money, you will NOT be disappointed. Don't be fooled by self titled 'Audiophiles' who would bash Sony for sound and steer you from this amplifier. Unless you spend thousands of dollars on an amp, you won't notice the difference between this and a 'better' brand under 1k+

I thought this would be a great receiver since it was a one of a kind. How often do you have a receiver with a network hub built in? Well, that was the driving factor since most of my media is digital as well as providing an interface for my game console, smart TV, and PC. The first thing I noticed is that the receiver get extremely hot when it is on or off due to a feature that allows you to use the switch all the time. This would be ideal with the components I had connected when I did not want to use the receiver. Less than a year of use, the receiver burned out. I took it to a Sony repair shop and they fried my receiver. I was not happy with this receiver though I thought the design was headed in the right direction with the hub installed. I am not happy with the product and am happy they discontinued this.
