Sony unveils 3D-ready AV receiver

updated 12:50 pm EST, Thu February 18, 2010

Sony STR-DN1010 handles 3D TV, iPhone

Sony today gave one of its company firsts in 3D to one of its mid-range AV receivers. The STR-DN1010 replaces the DN1000 (shown) and adds support for passing through 3D video from a Blu-ray player, PS3 or other source using any one of its four HDMI outputs. As the best receiver outside of the ES line, it also gets full 7.1-channel Dolby and DTS audio processing at 110W per channel, supports S-AIR wireless audio and carries a port for an iPhone- and iPod-capable audio dock.

The DN1010 can handle DVD upscaling to 1080p and also carries three component video inputs for conventional video. It should ship only by June but will cost a relatively mild $500.

Three other, conventional receivers are surfacing today and center on the STR-DH810, a $400 receiver with virtually all the features of the DN1010 except for 3D. It's joined by the STR-DH710, which at $300 outputs slightly less power at 105W per channel and has one less HDMI input. The entry STR-DH510 at $230 only supports 5.1-channel audio, drops to five inputs (three HDMI and two component) and sheds S-AIR support. All three of these will ship in March.

    sony av receiver

    Sony has always been very good about the quality products that work well. That has not changed in this case either. The Sony STR-DN1010 may not be the best AV receiver we've reviewed, but still a very good product. With its unique capabilities in 3D, may be the only option for some people. Since 3D is not the norm but visually, it could justify the opening of a weighting function that exists in the score. Maybe a couple of years from now it will not happen, but until then, Sony will release a newer model and still can not reach the top. http://www.thesonyworld.com/sony-av-receiver-review-of-sony-str-dn1010.html
