Your ideal home audio arrangement
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.
Experience full cinematic quality
Pioneering sound field technology combines advanced auto calibration with seamless speaker relocation, producing breathtaking cinematic sound unlike anything you've experienced at home.
Seamless auto calibration
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.
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. Latest HDR standards such as HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) and Dolby Vision™ are supported.
Optimal sound reproduction
Easily access your music
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.
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™: for the transmission of High-Resolution Audio content
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
Touch, connect, and play
Enjoy simple wireless listening with One-touch NFC. Just touch a compatible smartphone to the receiver for Bluetooth audio.
Sound that stays with you
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.
Quality parts for superior sound
Every component in the STR-DN1080 has been designed for optimal sound quality.
High quality DA converter
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Jitter elimination circuit
A combination of carefully tuned analogue and digital circuitry reduces jitter to ensure accurate real-time audio processing.
Localised analogue power supply
Each digital device has its own analogue voltage regulator to keep high frequency noise from distorting the analogue signal.
Pure audio grade components
The pure audio grade block capacitor and resistors are less susceptible to interference, delivering superior sound imaging.
Constructed for great sound
A reinforced frame and beam chassis design reduces external speaker sound pressure for more focused, powerful sound.
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.
3 powerful digital signal processors support the latest 3D surround sound formats, ensuring the highest accuracy in signal decoding.
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.
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.
Exclusive Sony IC CXD90035
The pre-amplifier IC CXD9003 eliminates interference and enables stable amplification to realise high-quality sound with rich low frequencies.
