Experience Lifelike Audio - 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.

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.

Find Your Audio Sweet Spot

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.

Experience Full 360° Sound - 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.

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.

Space-optimized Cinematic Sound

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.

Total 7.1.2ch Surround Immersion

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.

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 optimizes 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 bring colors to life.

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.

Optimal Sound Reproduction

DSD native playback - DSD (Direct Stream Digital) native playback means DSD content can be fully enjoyed without losing any of its original purity. Also enjoy multichannel 5.1ch surround (up to DSD 5.6 MHz).

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 at the recording studio or concert.

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, HDMI, and DLNA connectivity, and multichannel capabilities let you incorporate the high-quality sound into an immersive surround system.

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.

Chromecast Built-in

Stream music, online radio, and podcasts from your smartphone, tablet, or laptop to your audio device. Just tap the Cast button. Stream music, podcasts and radio from 100+ audio apps, including Google Play™ Music and more.

Spotify Connect

Play Spotify through your audio device using the Spotify app as a remote.

Better Sound Quality

Just tap the Cast button to start streaming your favorite music directly from the cloud, for the best audio quality.

Save Your Battery

Chromecast built-in makes a direct connection to the streaming service, so your smartphone battery lasts much longer than it would over Bluetooth® connection.

Total Listening Freedom

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.

Get Connected

For a truly dynamic home entertainment setup, there are six HDMI inputs and two outputs, a front USB port, and optical digital and analog AV connections. So you can connect your TV, Blu-ray Disc™ player, smartphone, and more, quickly and easily.

Six HDMI Inputs and Two Outputs

With six HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs - including one second-zone HDMI output - there's space for your current equipment and scope to expand.

DSD Native Playback via DLNA, HDMI, or USB

Play DSD through DLNA network-connected devices, or connect via a USB with support for up to 24 bit/192 kHz High-Resolution Audio playback.

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.

Touch, Connect, and Play

Enjoy simple wireless listening with One-touch NFC. Just touch a compatible smartphone to receiver for Bluetooth® audio.

AirPlay Audio

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.

Quality Capacitors - Newly developed high audio-quality surface mounted electrolytic capacitors, together with a more robust DAC power source and optimized 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 singe-point ground and independent power supply promotes purer sound with less interference.

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, 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.

Localized 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, power 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.

Powerful 3DSPs - 3 powerful digital signal processors support the latest 3D surround sound formats, ensuring the highest accuracy in the 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 CXD90035 eliminates interference and enables stable amplification to realize high-quality sound with rich low frequencies.
