Re: STR-DN1050 and Music Center

Well. That did it. I upgraded to iOS11 and now although the old app opens and finds the receiver it will not switch from main to zone2. Now to adjust volume, I literally need to run inside the house and do it by pressing buttons on the receiver. You can’t even do it by using the Sony remote!!! What a disgrace of a company. How do we start a Class action law suit?

Re: STR-DN1050 and Music Center

Might I suggest that those who desire more than 1 year of product support before EOL (end of life) that Denon, Marantz, and Yamaha tend to support thier products longer than Sony. 2016 Yamaha, Marantz, and Denon receivers are getting Dolby Vision and HLG updates. 2015 Marantz recievers are getting it too. Sony is only adding DV support to 2017 units.

Sony EOLs it's recievers too soon.

Re: STR-DN1050 and Music Center

I also have this issue, and kept the old app on my wifes phone, but with the iOS 11 update, the old app does not allow me to switch to Zone 2. It is now completely broken. I specificallyh bought this receive so I can sit in my back yard and listen to music, and now I can't do that. When I play music from spotify, both zones come on, so I have to run inside and shut that off, and then adjust the volume for the second zone, and then go back outside to see if I adjusted it properly. Any more details on the class action lawsuit?

Capitoltech. For now, I have been extensively review bombing these and their current line of receivers in all major websites. The company needs to understand that every negative review we post translates to way more lost revenue than what would cost them to keep supporting our receiver. My situation is identical to yours and I’m livid because of that. Next receiver is definitely Sonos.

Hi, has anyone updated the system software on the STR-DN 1050 to tha latest version? Does it anyhow impact the overall functioning ot the device? Now, with no support for the device, I'm a bit afraid to do anything :/

I have updated the system and can’t say that it has impacted anything in a positive or negative way.

Re: STR-DN1050 and Music Center

They announced that the newest firmware update bring support these legacy models, so upgraded my str-dn1050. It didn't work. I just bought Monitor Audio silver 500 speekers and I was going to change receiver anyway as receiver isn't at same level with the speekers. Sony was on the list, but not anymore. No more Sony products ever. Most probably I'm going to buy Denon avr-4400w or Marantz sr6012 or Yamaha rx-a1070.

Re: STR-DN1050 and Music Center

Totalfail. Thanks for your refs of receivers. I think this would be a worthwhile continuation to list other top choices. While other companies do continue to support legacy models, ive notes that all companies apps are rated 2 stars or below. All except sonos

Re: STR-DN1050 and Music Center

Heos for denon is rated 3,5 stars. Decent and supported app is enough. Sound quality and power are the most important things when choosing av receiver.
