Discover DTS: X
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 speakers) and object-based audio decoding.
The STR-DN1080 has been designed with flexible speaker solutions that work around your environment, so that you get the best audio experience whatever your setup.
Discover flexible speakers
The new flexible speaker solution ‘relocates’ sound to simulate the optimal position and angle for the best audio experience, working around any physical space restrictions.
Discover 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.
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.
Get the real deal with a full-fledged 7.2 channel surround speaker system, and enjoy movies with full aural impact like at the theater.
Defy space restrictions and experience full 7 channel surround sound, including 2 overhead speakers, with the Phantom Surround Back speaker setting. It simulates the audio experience of physical surround back speakers.
Pioneering sound field technology combines advanced auto calibration with seamless speaker relocation, producing breathtaking cinematic sound unlike anything you've experienced at home.
Combining auto calibration technology with virtual speaker relocation, D.C.A.C EX automatically optimises speaker frequencies, phases and delays, delivering a sound field perfectly suited to your room.
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. Latest HDR standards such as HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) and Dolby Vision™ are supported.
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.
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, HDMI and DLNA connectivity, and multi-channel capabilities let you incorporate the high quality sound into an immersive surround system.
Enjoy easy access to a wealth of music and more, thanks to Chromecast built-in (previously Google Cast™) and Spotify Connect.
Stream music, online radio and podcasts from your smartphone, tablet or laptop to your audio device. Just tap the Cast button.
Play Spotify through your audio device using the Spotify app as a remote.
Stream music, podcasts and radio from 100+ audio apps, including YouTube Music and more.
Just tap the Cast button to start streaming your favourite music directly from the cloud, for the best audio quality.
Chromecast built-in makes a direct connection to the streaming service, so your smartphone battery lasts much longer than it would over Bluetooth connection.
Multitask without interruption. Play a game or take a call and the music will keep playing, even if you take your phone into another room.
For a truly dynamic home entertainment setup, there are six HDMI inputs and two outputs, a front USB port, optical digital and analogue AV connections. So you can connect your TV, Blu-ray Disc™ player, smartphone and more, quickly and easily.
LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional Bluetooth® Audio, which allows you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional sound quality near to High-Resolution Audio.1
Enjoy simple wireless listening with One-touch NFC. Just touch a compatible smartphone to the receiver for Bluetooth audio.
Stream music throughout the house with Sony | Music Center
Listen to the same great song all around the house with multi-room listening, controlled via the Sony | Music Center (previously called SongPal) app. Use Sony | Music Center Link to group compatible Sony sound systems, then stream music in multiple rooms.
Every component in the STR-DN1080 has been designed for optimal sound quality.
DSD playback without any conversion enables the actual DSD content to be played back as-is, without losing any of its original purity.
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.
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.
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.
For greater stability and output power a glass-epoxy circuit board is used. Unlike cheaper resin boards, internal vibrations are reduced for less distortion, so you just get clear high power from each of the discrete amplifiers.
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.
A combination of carefully tuned analogue and digital circuitry reduces jitter to ensure accurate real-time audio processing.
Each digital device has its own analogue voltage regulator to keep high frequency noise from distorting the analogue signal.
The pure audio grade block capacitor and resistors are less susceptible to interference, delivering superior sound imaging.
A reinforced frame and beam chassis design reduces external speaker sound pressure for more focused, powerful sound.
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.
3 powerful digital signal processors support the latest 3D surround sound formats, ensuring the highest accuracy in signal decoding.
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.
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.
The pre-amplifier IC CXD9003 eliminates interference and enables stable amplification to realise high-quality sound with rich low frequencies.
