What customers say about "Key Specs"
Sony STR-DN860 7.2 Multi-Room AV Receiver
  • Good punch, crisp tops and bass.
  • The sound is first-class, with both stereo and surround, very impressive.
  • Sound is clear and crisp and feels full and deep.
  • Paired this up with Tannoy TFX set and sounds great. Room not furnished yet so can't fully comment on sound but so far so good.
  • The quality of the sound is so much more natural for every day TV viewing and there is still more than enough power when watching movies.

  • Sound quality superb (as you'd expect from almost ANY receiver these days).
  • I found the quality of the output was very impressive. Clarity to the notes when playing instrumental pieces.
  • I do have very good speakers and they sound pretty good with this amp.

Sony STR-DN860 7.2 Multi-Room AV Receiver
  • Paired with Jamo Cube A102 and Sub210 this really delivers
  • Bass and treble response and sound crispness are all a great deal better
  • Watching the opening sequence to Skyfall explosions were room shaking without overpowering dialogue and shattering glass
  • Bought this to work with a couple of other Sony multi-room wireless speakers I have.
  • Music is accessed from Synology NAS, and it all works a treat - music throughout the house, plus the ability to take a portable speaker outside.

  • Drives a set of Klipsh towers and Bose 5.1 system without any problems.
  • With an active subwoofer or two, as in my environment, it really gives almost similar feeling as in a theater or cinema.
  • The other reason for my purchase was that this product was able sent to different zone or part of the home. The quality of the sound was still just as good at different zones.
  • Lots of cool features, Auto speaker set-up, Airplay, bluetooth
  • At first it looks complicated, but it is easily manageable. I love the features and the sound quality.
