DSD native playback

Co-developed for High-Resolution Audio by Sony and Philips, the companies behind the original CD format, DSD offers a revolutionary way of capturing and playing back audio. Its sampling frequency is 128-times that of CD, and it offers 8 times the data volume of CD, to take audio to a whole new level. Totally different from PCM format, DSD uses a pulse-density modulation encoding method to store audio, expressing sound through the pulse intensity of a 1-bit digital audio stream that more closely represents the nature of an analogue audio waveform. This enables the delivery of warm, natural analogue-like sound coupled with the digital advantages of wide dynamic range and frequency response surpassing 100kHz. Since the STR-DN1070 supports DSD (Direct Stream Digital) native playback, there is no conversion involved so DSD content can be fully enjoyed without losing any of their original purity.

High-Resolution Audio file formats

The STR-DN1080 supports a wide variety of High-Resolution Audio formats, including both DSD and Linear PCM. What’s more, playback is possible with USB and DLNA connectivity, and multi-channel capabilities let you incorporate the high quality sound into an immersive surround system.

High quality DA converter

DSD delivers audio with an immense sense of space and accurate representation of an artist’s original vision. By selecting DSD Native playback, DSP processing is bypassed to deliver DSD original purity as-is, but if you prefer you can select DSP processing with 32-bit DA conversion as well. What’s more, multi-channel 5.1ch surround with DSD 5.6MHz delivers a truly immersive home cinema experience in which the advantages of DSD can be appreciated to their fullest.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

Quality capacitors

Newly developed high audio-quality surface mounted electrolytic capacitors, together with a more robust DAC power source and optimised substrate patterning, help to achieve a stable low range with high-resolution. 

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

Fine sound resistor

The high quality surface-mounted resistor uses pure copper electrodes to attain high volume data conductivity for rich, vivid audio quality, and is designed to address the limited space of high-density circuitry.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

Class leading pre-amp volume IC

The new pre-amp goes way beyond other receivers in this class for optimum High-Resolution Audio delivery. A single-point ground and independent power supply promotes purer sound with less interference.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

Power amplifier

For greater stability and output power a glass-epoxy circuit board is used. Unlike cheaper resin boards, internal vibrations are reduced for less distortion, just clear high power from each of the discrete amplifiers.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

Precision crystal oscillator

Specifically designed for audio from HDMI sources, vacuum-sealed oscillators prevent signal jitter and ensure high resolution music and surround sound formats are faithfully reproduced with a wide sound stage.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

Jitter elimination circuit

A combination of carefully tuned analog and digital circuitry reduces jitter to ensure accurate real-time audio processing.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

Localised analogue power supply

Each digital device has its own analog voltage regulator to keep high frequency noise from distorting the analog signal.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

Pure audio grade components

The pure audio grade block capacitor and resistors are less susceptible to interference, delivering superior sound imaging.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

Constructed for great sound

A reinforced frame and beam chassis design reduces external speaker sound pressure for more focused, powerful sound.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

Large capacity power transformer

Care and attention to the highest quality audio starts with the power transformer. Internal wiring is vacuum-coated for uncoloured sound, and a specially developed copper and steel shield ensures powerful bass and accurate vocal frequencies.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

Powerful 3DSPs

3 powerful digital signal processors support the latest 3D surround sound formats, ensuring the highest accuracy in signal decoding.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

New Digital circuit board

The newly designed casting metal framework and heat sink bracket shield the circuits from sound pressure and radiation, for high rigidity and clearer sound quality.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

ES grade solder

The ES grade sound quality solder uses high purity tin base mixed with small amount of specially chosen metal elements, producing a sound that is tight and refined.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

32 bit processing

Non DSD native playback is also supported, in which DA conversion is performed on the DSP output that has been processed in 32 bits "as is." The superior DSP technology that Sony has cultivated for AVR enables all features to be upgraded by undergoing 32-bit DA conversion.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

Heat sink design

Newly designed fins maximise air intake, helping the amplifier circuit withstand unwanted sound pressure and keep cool.

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

Zoned listening puts the right music in the right room

Harness all the power of the 7.1.2 channels in one room (Main) or enjoy 5.2 channel sound in one room and share the remaining 2 channels in another (Zone 2).

Picture of 7.2 Channel Home Theater AV Receiver

Control made easy with a Graphic User Interface

It’s easy to navigate your receiver’s settings, thanks to an intuitive home menu. Control what you watch, identify which devices are connected, and choose how you want to listen with pre-set sound modes.
