Caved and bought the Sony. Being delivered next Saturday. Noticed recently that dialogue can me muddy with my aging Yamaha RX-V765 amp, and from the reviews the Sony is supposed to excel at centre channel clarity.

I'm really happy with mine and I have difficulty with speech clarity on most things.

I'm just wondering if it's worth an upgrade from the STR-DN1050

Only if you're going to add the Atmos speakers.

Well, I've got the 4 rear speakers at the moment. I thought I could just put two speakers up higher and swap the settings to the Atmos output (5.2.1?) instead of 7.1. But then again, I've not got much to play in Atmos.

The main niggle I've had with the 1050 is that it doesn't pass through HDR, so I've had to put the PS4Pro directly into the TV to get HDR. Then the sound only comes back via ARC as Dolby+ so no 7.1.

It's not a big issue really, just annoying. Currently I don't think it's worth spending the cash just to fix it.

Wonder if the new stuff is coming out now, hence the price drops.

Mine replaced a Denon 2200 and it’s a huge noticeable improvement
Much clearer dialogue
Much more enveloping sound for the surrounds
Much more control in the bass

Very happy

Mrs made me cancel it last night . Then she had a change of heart this morning so I re-ordered - this time with the Amazon Assistant £5 off voucher too . Watched Kajaki last night and some of the dialogue was really hard to catch - think that's what changed her mind.

Is it really worth the extra £100 for the Sony?
I'd be upgrading from an Onkyo TX-NR626 that, whilst pretty decent in general, is getting a little long in the tooth...
