The Sony STR-DN1010 is one of four A/V receivers (DH510, DH710, DH810, DH1010) released in 2010. It is the top model in the series and Sony’s first-ever receiver to feature HDMI v1.4 3D pass-through technology, allowing users with a 3D Blu-ray Disc player and 3D HDTV to immerse themselves in a full-fledged 3D environment. The STR-DN1010 also features HDMI standby pass-through, allowing a user to continue to pass a/v signals to a display even when the receiver is turned off. There’s also an HDMI audio return channel, which lets the user send TV audio to the receiver with a single cable.
A user can still use a non-3D capable A/V receiver if they’re willing to run an HDMI cable directly to their display and a digital audio cable to their receiver. However, upgrading to a 3D A/V receiver like the STR-DN1010 is the recommended option.
Additional features of the Sony STR-DN1010 include seven HD inputs (3 HDMI, 4 Component); an icon-driven menu system; 1080p upconversion of analog video signals; 2nd-zone wireless audio via an S-AIR transmitter; and a Digital Media Port (DMP) input for connecting to an iPod or iPod (separately purchased DMP accessory required).
