Great sound...until you "push it"...AMP overheats

by DT on 10/1/2012

I eagerly received this Sony STR-DN1030 with much anticipation. It was to replace my aged, yet very reliable Sony 5.1 receiver (model # not recalled) which finally was put to death by a lightning strike. Within 1 hour of unpacking and plugging everything in, my happiness was removed when to my dismay the receiver shut down repeatedly while playing just music via 2ch for about 30 minutes at a setting approximately 50 on the display. Unfortunately this trend has gotten worse, with shutdowns in 5 minutes occuring now. However, if I watch a movie, which is usually set at approximately "40" in volume, the unit will run for hours without shutting down. According to a friend of mine who bought this unit about a month before me, his has the same problem and it's been about 3 weeks and they won't replace the unit and are waiting on parts which are not yet available. I like Sony but I say beware on this unit until they fix these issues.
