Sony remotes are crap

Alistair Flood says:

Can this putput miltiple resolutions? For example, I’ll be plugging in a 1080p projector and a 4k TV. I want this to output 4k content to the 4k TV (e.g. my Xbox one X) then when I switch to the projector I want t to display 1080p content. Is this possible using the two outputs?

Have the STR-DN 1050
It’s great no bugs or hassels at all like with all other home AV or tech nowadays.
Only thing i miss is a proper 10 band EQ, but i guess all manufacturers has wiped em from their systems in favor for the built in DSP settings that come with their Dolby license: Concert hall, Sports, Music, Portable device etc EQ modes

I own the 1070 and its fantastic! Sadly now I want to upgrade to Atmos.

Remake Remodel says:

I own the str dn 1070 and a denon s720w and the sony has much better sound quality without needing any post processing done to the sound.

I Don’t like Sony receivers. I have one and it sounds like crap. I might sell and get rid of it someday to purchase one from another manufacturer.
