Is that the September 2014 issue which will compare the sony 1050 to the Yamaha 677 , Denon x2100?  Nobody sells What HIfi? mag where I live (Bermuda).  How can I get the online issue to read on my PC (windows xP)?  I want to read it ASAP if possible.  Did they say the 1050 is even better than the 1040?  I didn't get the 1040 because of the mainy compaints of HDMI issues.

 

You can subscribe to the digital edition either through Zinio, Google Play or Apple Newsstand:

System

I found the zinio for windows xp pc.  Downloaded it and it worked on a free magazine.  I digitally subscribed to what hifi?  I am viewing the August 2014 issue.  When is the release date for digital for the September 2014 issue?

Release Date???

I subscribe to zinio for What Hifi magazine.  I read the September 2014 issue was supposed to be available on zinio on the newstand date.  The mag was released on July 30.  It is now August 2 and I haven't received it yet on zinio?

I am about to get very angry angry Zinio uploaded the September issue several days before it was due to go on sale, so we asked them to remove it and then post it back up on July 30th, the correct on-sale date. Which they have failed to do. Emails are being sent as I write this to rectify the situation. Again, I can only apologise for the delay caused by an external supplier.

Review

I read the review.  I also read a review on the 1050 on sound and vision (US mag).  Everybody rates it as excellent.  I'm trying now to sell my Harman 2700.  Don't know how long I can wait before I can get my hands on the sony 1050.  If I buy a new amp before I sell the old one the wife will kill me, again....lol.

This has to be the quickest sale ever.  The Harman Kardon 2700 was I believe a waste of money.  I will have to pay an extra $50 and I will pick up a sony 1050 tomorrow.  I trust what hifi reviews.  I know I will be very happy.  I finally have HDMI passthropugh.  I know I will love the sony dynamic sound, especially with TV and movies.  HK receivers are overpriced.

Sony STR-DN1050???
   

I sold my Harman Kardon AVR 2700, on Wednesday evening and for $95 extra purchased my Sony STR-DN1050.  Was it a mistake? Hell no.  The Sony is a a much better av receiver.  The clarity of the vocals, the sweet highs the punchy, tight bass.  At lower volumes the sound is even better than the HK 2700, which has Dolby Volume.  I can honestly say my Home Theatre is finally to my liking, I am happy.  What Hi Fi are the only reviews I trust.  I purchased my JBL Studio 5 (530's) because a review I read on What HiFi and now the Sony STR-DN1050.  Your reviews are spot on.  I calibrated my 1050 after running the Automatic Calibration with an SPL Meter, but I prefer the settings used in the Sony's Auto Calibration.  The only thing I changed were the Crossover Settings for the Speakers.  Also turned on the Auto Volume and set the sound optimizer to 'Normal'.  Also love the Sony 'HD DCS Engineer and the Theatre' surround sound processing.  I've read the 1050 uses alot of equipment and features from the ES Series.  I Iove it.

SONY STR-DN1050 pass through

Hi,

I read really good reviews about the STR-DN1050 but I didn't find any information about how well the pass through works and the power consumption in this mode. For some reason Sony doesn't publish this info in the specification.

Can someone shae his insights?
