Sony launches its first 3D-capable A/V receiver for $500

So you've already planned on buying your 3D HDTV and your 3D Blu-ray player. What else do you need?

So you've already planned on buying your 3D HDTV and your 3D Blu-ray player. What else do you need? (Besides some 3D glasses and actual 3D content.)

If you have a home theater system in place and you want to hear those 3D discs in surround sound, you'll want a receiver to which you can connect your Blu-ray player and then send the audio and video straight to your HDTV. Enter Sony's STR-DN1010 A/V, its first receiver to be 3D compatible, passing both the 3D video and multi-channel audio through HDMI to your set.

In addition to its 3D capabilities, the 7.1-channel STR-DN1010 offers the usual assortment of features found on today's A/V receivers, including support for Dolby TrueHD and dts-HD Master Audio surround sound codecs, upscaling to 1080p for non-HD source material, 110 watts per channel, and four HDMI and three component-video connections. At $500, it costs $100 more than its non-3D equivalent, the STR-DH810, but doesn't totally break the bank. Sony says the STR-DN1010 will be available in June.
