Centre Speaker Lift Up

Centre speakers are typically positioned below the screen, so all centrally located sounds come from below the screen. This feature enables the centre speaker to appear to be located at the position of the screen. The height of the sound from the centre speaker can be raised to a desired height. (This works with actual installed front high speakers.) The centre speaker lift up can be set to 0 (OFF) or between 1 and 10. With a higher setting the centre position is raised, so listeners can customise this function to suit their preferences. This function can be used with A.F.D. mode (which adds no sound field) and movie modes like HD-Digital Cinema Sound, etc.

New Pre-amplification volume IC 

Newly developed for the STR-DN1060, the pre-amplifier IC CXD90035, completely separates the ground in the IC and draws it outside of the IC. As a result, interference between each stage is eliminated, enabling high stability amplification to realise high-quality sound with rich low frequencies. In addition, the internal amplification circuit's new design improves excess properties and reduces distortion, for sound with a more open and airy feel.

Power Amplifier

The STR-DN1060 offers improved structural stability for better sound via the analogue signal path. This circuit is located on a glass epoxy board in order to achieve higher speed and power.

Low Phase noise type vacuum sealed precision crystal oscillator

For all clocks for HDMI audio sources, a newly developed low noise type vacuum-sealed precision crystal oscillator achieves a 40% decrease in phase noise from previous typical crystal oscillators. It is strong enough to maintain contact due to its property of adhesion to quartz, even under strong mechanical shocks. Clock signal jitter is drastically reduced by this method, resulting in a clear sound stage with rich and deeper bass.

Jitter Elimination Circuit

For STR-DN1060, an ES type jitter elimination circuit is used for all digital audio sources. It is a combination of carefully tuned analogue and digital PLL circuitry. Unlike the conventional method, the target value is not the input master clock, but the timing reference of a precision crystal oscillator. This analogue PLL has a high cut-off frequency, following the jitter with low timing reference. In addition, the circuit also has a digital PLL, and the input master clock and VCO are compared by this digital PLL.

Localised Analogue Power Supply

The supply-ground path around the devices is voltage regulated locally to ensure that high frequency elements are minimised, thereby reducing electromagnetic radiation from the circuit and keeping the analogue signal path and amplifier circuit noise free. This design delivers an improvement in the signal-to-noise ratio of digital audio and digital video signals so low frequency sound is more defined, with greater purity and reality.

Sony Tuned Electrical Components

Large sized custom made block electrolytic capacitors are used for the main power supply. Selected audio grade resistors are used in all analogue signal paths. Large sized resistors are used together with the original type at selected critical locations. A bigger sized body offers less impedance drift from any thermal effect caused by current flow. This helps the amplifier to achieve a higher grade of sound imaging.

Premium construction for optimum sound

For optimum audio visual performance, the STR-DN1060 uses the highest quality components and design. The rigid steel chassis uses a frame and beam design to reduce external speaker pressure for more focused sound. All the four corners are embossed to better support the weight of the power transformer and heat sink. The heat sink design maximises air intake into the amplifier circuit, helping to withstand unwanted sound pressure—all combining to deliver powerful, refined sound.

Large Capacity Power Transformer

A process of vacuum varnish achieves flat and even varnishing on internal wiring for the power transformer. Inclusion of both a copper short-ring and steel hum-proof belt around the coil and the core prevents noise leakage. This achieves rich bass and fine reproduction of image detail, plus more powerful bass and lower frequency drive. The level of detail helps deliver more accurate acoustic bass and vocals, offering a new sense of clarity with space.

Heat Sink Design 

By studying the fin shape and controlling the uniformity, good and stable sound can be achieved. The amplifier circuit is able to better withstand unwanted sound pressure.

Picture of 7.2ch Home Theatre AV Receiver | STR-DN1060

Digital circuit board 

The circuit board for the digital stage is secured with strong metal frames to protect the board from speaker sound pressure. This heat sink bracket takes on the duty of shielding the digital circuit from unwanted radiation, and shields the high impedance circuit in the main body from unnecessary noise, thereby realising clearer sound quality.

Second generation ES solder

Years of sound engineering experience and continuous sound testing by Sony helped to create an ES-grade sound quality solder. A high purity tin base is mixed with small amounts of specially chosen metal elements to create a special alloy capable of delivering sound that is responsive and very smooth.
