Performed beyond expectations
from Florida, USA
Comments about Sony 7.2 Ch 4K Wi-Fi Network A/V Receiver:
Bought this after my old Sony AV unit developed a serious channel problem. Researched for weeks before deciding to purchase this one. The 850 DN unit meets my power needs in my sitting room and promised plenty of new functionality. I appreciated the simplicity of the setup and installation except one and only point, the unlocking of my internet music streaming accounts. Beyond that the acoustic auto setup worked well. The Bluetooth, USB and media steaming functionality surpassed my tech savvy kid's expectations. We frequently play videos, picture slide shows and music that way. I use a hard wired LAN connection but did try wireless without any issues. After six months of use, I am still very pleased with the unit and have no observations to the contrary to report.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent Audio Video receiver (AVR)
I have been using Sony AVR since 2001 and I have always been satisfied with the performance. I upgraded from STR - DE697 and my speakers have never sounded better. The sound quality is awesome and there is enough power to "make some noise". The setup was super easy and the graphical user interface (GUI) is the best I have seen. I have not had any of the HDMI issues (knock wood) that I have read about in other reviews. This is excellent value and I would recommend to every one.
Great 7.2 ch WiFi Network Receiver
from Liverpool, NY
I put together with new 65" Ultra HD Sony TV and Sony smart 3D WiFi Blue Ray player and I must say it is an awesome combination. The receiver has wonderful power, and video and sound are incredible.Versatile and easy to use.

About Me Movie Enthusiast
Purchased this unit to replace an older model that finally gave out but got my moneys worth from the old unit. Very easy to set up using the on screen menu. Connected right away to both my ipad and pc. sound quality is very good, movies also sound great. I only use Sony products for my home theater so I knew this would be a good addition.

Love the unit but having lots of issues
The unit itself is great and has many features but I'm continuing to have problems with the USB connection, internet music, and Bluetooth. It's been returned for service once already with parts replaced and now it's not functioning again. Last time it was sent away for service we were without the unit for over 3 weeks. Now we'll be without it again for several weeks. Very frustrating that something so new has so many problems.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love the Receiver - Hate the Manual
from Tucson, AZ, USA
The quick setup was easy and the sound is great! But, sheesh, I think it would be a good idea to not have to go onto the internet to find the manual. And even better, have something in writing to help you troubleshoot the "Code Not Valid" when you go to register for the add-ons like Pandora. That said, the good techie at the support number got me sorted out, so a tip of my hat and a gold star to him.
The reciever is good , The remote control, no book
The remote has no book , When you ask a question , they ask you , Can you be more specific , Like they can not speak English. I wanted to use it for pandora , over wifi , over my speaker system , you need a tv hooked up , or you will be guessing where pandora or where the internet setting is .. Took me a week to figure it out , sony on there site was no help .
Bad decision again
Had a Sony receiver years ago that had lots of problems with HDMI output and power protection mode, After purchasing an 4K TV Had to upgrade from Onkyo receiver that never gave me any problems and decided to give Sony another try. It turns itself on and off while watching a movie or changes input by itself, only had it for 4 months,called about warranty and was told that I had to pay to ship it to New York for repairs. What a waste of $500.00
STRDN850 Sony 7.2 receiver
from Centreville, VA 20120, USA
Excellent user interface and feature set. Sound effects work well, bindings posts are a good feature, runs cool - need that for cabinet installation, internet and smartphone features are outstadning. Only negative is the advertised "HD Radio". I haven't found it, but the TuneIn app is arguably better. Oh, and the microphone setup is a pleasant surprise.
