Buy it kids
I've heard how good it is. I've also heard how bad it is from poor/buggy UI to complete malfunction...

Never had it malfunction but the remote has a wee bit of lag.

I've had mine since January and had no problems yet* touch wood*. I've been loving mine. The only problem I've had is the place I bought it from went into liquidation about a month after.

As I understand it, it's mainly down to the rest of your set up, you'll either have no issues or you'll tear your hair out. The big one is HDMI CEC which seems to be fine if you have a Sony TV but otherwise turn it off or look elsewhere. There are other bugs though and Sony are reportedly not interested.

If you want a pain free experience get the similar level Denon x2500h or spend a bit more and get the all round better X3500h.
A mixture of mostly older speakers tbh. Wharfedale Xarus 5000 floorstanders. Mordaunt Short MS9050 centre, Mordaunt Short MS Avant 903s surrounds and Onkyo SKH 410 Atmos speakers. Don't need a subwoofer as the floorstanders handle all the low end bass no problem.
I am sure this is a good amp but i agree with most comments in HUKD - The Denon x2500h is just a little bit better. I have an aging 4 year old Denon and it is still working flawlessly - its just the lack of 4K which makes me want to upgrade.

None-the-less this is a good deal if you are after the Sony!
I have this AVR paired with a LG B7 and not had any problems or issues at all. Sounds really nice and works brilliantly. As others have said... I'm sure the Denon is great too - but you can't go wrong at this price.
I've been on here long enough to know this is not a sofa , and if it doesn't look like a sofa it's not very good
I have this and its awesome! No problems at all. Amazing for stereo music too. Have my Sony turntable hooked up to it and it makes me very happy!
Also don't listen to the comments about Onkyo, Yamaha or Denon... Go into the shop and try all 3 for yourself! I thought the Denon sounded too warm and not dynamic/punchy enough and the Yamaha sounded uninteresting. It's all subjective though!
Mine went pop after 18 months, the digital board - £450 repair estimate
Now have an Onkyo TX-NR575 for just over half the price - Dolby Atmos
If you're investing in Atmos, I'd seriously consider spending a couple of hundred more and getting one that supports 4 height channels (this one supports 2). That way you get true 3d sound... rather than just a sound from above, it's seperated for above/front above/back
good deal though, voted hot
No problems with mine either - although expectations weren’t that high coming from a 12 year old Denon.

Did have some issues with Apple TV, but never truly found out if that was the AVR, TV or Apple box causing the issues. I have a feeling it was the apple box as googling it showed many people with the same problems using a variety of av equipment. Seems to have fixed itself now either way.

Edit: would have gone with the comparable Denon had I not found the Sony for £279 refurbished.

If buying from Richer Sounds and not already inclued (VIP) it's usually worh paying 10% for 5 year warranty. I've only used it once on an old Yamaha amp I paid £400 for, 4 1/2 years later it started dropping signal to TV. I returned to Richer Sounds who sent it away and got a reply within a week to say not economical to repair. Happy Days, returned to Richer Sounds where I picked up the Sony DN1050 including 5 year warranty without paying any extra. I've had that 3-4 years now so hopefully I won't have any issues with this amp

I can somewhat agree with this. I had the amp back when I had a Samsung smart TV and it worked fine, however, on the rare occasion the HDMI CEC would play up with my Sky Q box. This was the only device out of 5 that had an issue and it was rare at best.

Since then upgraded to a Sony AF9 Oled and no problems at all. The pair integrate a lot more too. I can use my TV remote to control the amp and Sony 4k blu ray player.

I think it's an amazing amp though. Especially for that price
Oops, careful now. Onkyo and Loughborough Guy in the same thread. Watching with interest what happens next!

Does this support Sky Q UHD directly via the HDMI output / input, as my current STRDN1050 doesn't, where the TV doesn't recognise the feed without having an external adaptor inbetween the output from the Sky Q box and the input into the Receiver. This also doesn't recognise my Samsung TV as being 10 bit either. Just wondered whether this would solve both problems with a single cable from the Sky Q box to the Receiver.
In theory this is a great deal. However, having had this amp for two weeks, I'd warn of the following:

ARC and CEC are managed strangely by the amp.
The amp often prioritises its menu home screen over the input you are desiring.
The sound is phenomenal, but it's User experience from a day to day usage is frustrating. I got a Denon X3500 instead. Punchier on price, but punchier on sound too.

Yes it does. I have sky q and many other 4k HDR products and they all go through this amp. The reason why your 1050 does not work is because it does not support HDCP 2.2.
Which store is this in?

Likewise, hence recommending it above.

One thing I will mention though is the quality from the built-in Spotify Connect is very poor, nothing to do with bitrate but just sounds poor, muddied with collapsed soundstage, to the extent that was the first thing I'd tried and was so disappointed I was going to send it back. Using it through an old Chromecast into the Denon is a huge improvement and very happy all round now. Apparently this problem is common to most of the big brands of receiver, not just Denon/Marantz, but gets no official recognition and no solution other than use something else to link to first.
Its back to £429 - expire please
