The Way The Artists Truly Intended
Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound in higher-than-CD quality with High-Resolution Audio. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker, so it feels like the artist is performing right in front of you.
Discover Dolby Atmos®
Dolby Atmos® delivers breathtaking realism with 360° surround sound, accurately positioning sound within your environment so that the 7.1.2 speaker channels (including Phantom Surround Back) completely envelopes you in sound-even from above.
DTS-X decoding delivers multi-dimensional surround sound that adapts to your speaker configuration in real time. Sounds can be positioned precisely around and above you thanks to 9 speaker channels (including Phantom Surround Back speakers) and object-based audio decoding.
Flexible speaker solutions
Sony's flexible speaker solutions 'relocate' sound to simulate the optimal position and angle for the best audio experience, working around any physical space restrictions.
Phantom Surround Back
The Phantom Surround Back speaker setting replicates the immersive sound of physical Surround Back speakers, enabling you to enjoy a 7 channel surround sound experience with only a 5 channel speaker setup.
Virtual surround with S-Force Pro Front Surround
Ideal for smaller rooms, S-Force PRO front surround delivers a virtual surround acoustic field using only 2 speakers. No need to place rear speakers behind you.
Seamless auto calibration
Combining auto calibration technology with virtual speaker relocation, D.C.A.C EX automatically optimises speaker frequencies, phase and delays, to deliver a sound field perfectly suited to your room.
Enjoy consistent 4K quality
Maintain 4K quality from source to screen-the 4K pass-through feature allows data to pass through the receiver without compromising image quality, and is HDCP 2.2 compatible.
See clearly with High Dynamic Range
By supporting High Dynamic Range (HDR) signal pass-through, you can enjoy the incredible jump in image contrast and brightness it brings-and the additional shadow detail and highlights further enhance picture detail and brings colours to life.
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 analog audio waveform. This enables the delivery of warm, natural analog-like sound coupled with the digital advantages of wide dynamic range and frequency response surpassing 100 kHz. 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.
DSEE HX upscaling
DSEE HX technology upscales your existing music to near high-resolution sound quality, and makes you feel as if you are really there at the recording studio or concert.

DSD native playback via DLNA, HDMI or USB

LDAC™: for the transmission of High-Resolution Audio content
LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate: 990 kbps) than conventional Bluetooth® Audio, which allows you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional sound quality near to High-Resolution Audio.
