Sony STR-DN1080 A/V Receiver adds Dolby Atmos and DTS:X

Sony STR-DN1080 A/V Receiver

Coming May 2017, Sony will release the STR-DN1080 A/V Receiver to replace the one year old STR-DN1070. The new model keeps the same amplifier power, yet claims to offer improved sound quality thanks to its flexible speaker solutions and support for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X surround sound. In combination with Sony’s “Phantom Surround Back” technology, listeners can enjoy 7.1.2 channel surround effects even if a 5.1.2 channel speaker system is a better fit for their space.

The STR-DN1080 includes Sony’s latest sound field compensation technology, D.C.A.C. EX, which combines Advanced D.C.A.C. with Speaker Relocation. This technology balances output to closely simulate sound as would be produced by optimally positioned and angled speakers resulting with the entire sound field seamlessly integrated for outstanding surround sound.

The STR-DN1080 helps deliver optimal video with six HDMI inputs and two outputs that provide full HDCP 2.2 compliance and supports the latest 4K 60P 4:4:4. Ultra HD content. It can also distribute both 4K video and multichannel audio simultaneously to two different zones. The STR-DN1080 is even compatible with the new BT.2020 wide color gamut broadcast standard for HDR content.

The STR-DN1080 also supports High-Resolution Audio including DSD native playback and is equipped with USB, Bluetooth, Google Assistant, Spotify Connect and Wireless Multi-Room capabilities.

Price and Availability
The Sony STR-DN1080 A/V Receiver will be available for presale in April and will be available in stores May 2017 for $599.99 MSRP.
