”The STR-DN1080 is still a force to be reckoned with.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 award-winner.

A new dimension in sound with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X

Dolby Atmos uses ceiling or upwards firing speakers to produce a multi-dimensional, immersive sound that's a match for the finest cinemas. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. It renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also easily adapts with your existing speaker configuration.

Optimised for 4K UHD and HDR
The STRDN1080 features flexible HDMI connectivity on all six inputs and both outputs. It supports HDCP 2.2 and HDR which means you can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video in the highest quality. It's also equipped with 4K upscaling, giving you the most detailed picture on your 4K TV from all sources. The HDMI sockets allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be turned on.

Powerful, enveloping sound
When it comes to power, the latest STR-DN1080 is as impressive as ever. The Sony is capable of outputting 165W per channel at 6 ohms, allowing great flexibility in your choice of speakers and room size. The Sony STRDN1080 uses a solid frame and beam chassis for vibration resistance and the lowest sound distortion possible. It also uses specially selected components, fitted with ES grade solder, for class-leading sound quality.

Bi-amp for superior sound
This 7.2 Sony receiver is also able to be used in bi-amp mode. With the channels switched to 5.1, bi-amping gives separate amplification to your front speakers' bass and treble units (bi-wirable front speakers required). The end result gives tighter control and a wider, more dynamic sound - both in stereo and surround modes.

High-Resolution audio compatible
As well as offering room-shaking power, the Sony STRDN1080 is also compatible with High-Resolution Audio. This offers a sound that's far more natural sounding than standard audio. The STR-DN1080 supports DSD 5.6MHz decoding via USB and network connections.

Google Chromecast built-in
Chromecast lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play, at the touch of a button. Having it built-in saves the battery life on your phone as the phone's Bluetooth transmission system isn't used for this purpose. Being able to stream straight from the cloud also gives the best audio quality.

Bring your music together with Sony SongPal
Download SongPal for your smartphone or tablet and take control of your music collection. Simply connect over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and you'll have seamless access to all your favourite tracks, whether they're stored on your PC, server, or online music service. The app can also be used to customise sound settings to ensure great, balanced audio, and control multi-room listening.

Wi-Fi, Bluetooth with NFC and Apple AirPlay making streaming a breeze
With Ethernet and Wi-Fi built-in along with support for Apple's popular AirPlay and NFC Bluetooth the Sony covers all networking bases. NFC via Bluetooth lets you effortlessly sync compatible portable devices with a simple swipe of the unit next to the special remote. With AirPlay you can stream music from your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or iTunes along with compatible music apps like Spotify (Premium account required for full features), straight to the receiver.

At home with the most sophisticated systems and TVs, the Sony STR-DN1080 is at the hub of home cinema magic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versitile unit but room for improvement I have bought a system from Richer Sounds in the past but through Amazon, a Denon Amp and MS speakers which was very good. However on this occasion I was after an AV receiver and had seen an upgraded unit from another manufacturer. These are complicated (and expensive) bits of equipment, I had a lot of questions so went directly to Richer Sounds. After discussing my requirements with the Richer Sound team I settled on a Sony receiver, one which is also recommended by WhatHiFi?, the Sony STR-DN1080. The Sony unit looks and sounds great, it really brings movies to life and my music sounds full and smooth, even at high volume. I am playing it through Wharfdale Diamond speakers (which I would also recommend). There are enough inputs and outputs to cope with almost any setup, both digital, analogue and HDMI. I have a Fire-stick, a Youview Recorder, FreeSat receiver, Blueray player, and XBox One going in then being fed out to my TV and a full HD projector. I can play any source to either projector or TV or both! The unit also connected to my Google Home system with no problems and I can now use this unit as part of my multi-room speaker system. Downsides - which is not a real issue, is that I used to improve the Denon unit volume for parties etc by feeding the source signal through a Marshall Amp, this does not work with the Sony unit as there is always a slight lag between the Sony and the Marshal speaker. However the Sony unit is loud enough that I don't need the Marshall amp anyway. A built in DAB Radio receiver would have been nice to have, but as you can stream other sources through the Sony unit there is no issue in playing a clear DAB feedfrom your phone. It may have been good to have a turntable phono connection, but I was using a pre-amp for my vinyl with the old unit anyway, so again not an issue, but the pure phono feed may have been better? The menu system can seem a bit clunky but setting up and allocating input names helps with this, all done through the TV onscreen menu. I am very happy customer, but if I were designing the system I would add a few tweaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality for the price Fantastic advice from the guys at Richer Sounds. Really happy with the amplifier which even the wife says is impressive!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good - but ... I have now had this unit for nearly a month. I bought it to replace a Brand new Yamaha which I just could not quite get my head around. Prior to that I had a rather elderly Pioneer, which was showing signs of giving up the ghost. I need a machine which will allow me pleasure listening to CDs (and SACDs) as well as having all the bells and whistles associated with good video broadcast. These were the qualities which drew me originally to the Pioneer. It was also what originally drew me to the Sony; Sony have a reputation for good sound. What initially put me off – and it’s the one major shortcoming of the Sony - was the lack of a standard co-axial tuner input. Hence my initial purchase of the Yamaha. Apart from issues with the Yamaha setup, what decided me to go back to my original choice of the Sony was the hardness of the Yamaha sound. I cannot, sadly, say that the Sony, though better than the Yamaha, quite matches the warmth of sound that I used to get from the Pioneer. It is a little harder than the Pioneer, and certainly a little over-bassed for my taste – something which is simple enough to deal with through the equaliser. It is, however, good enough; it is certainly very clear; just slightly lacking in warmth. The FM input provided turned out, as I suspected it would be, to be totally inadequate. It might work for someone living on the eighth floor of a tower block. On a system in a basement it was like listening to the radio through a barrage of sea surf. In the end I resolved the problem by buying a second-hand stand-alone unit off Ebay. I was lucky enough to get a Denon tuner for a net total of £14.20; money well spent. The other issues with this machine involve – as so often – non-intuitive pre-sets and setups, compounded by a poorly written user manual. This becomes peculiarly problematic when access to the internet is a floor away from the receiver. So, overall, pleased with my purchase. Most of the reservations I have are niggles – apart from the FM input, a failing on the part of Sony which is simply silly. Four stars, rather than five.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all round amp!! Brilliant surround sound via Dolby Atmos but also to my amazement very very good when used with Bi/wire for stereo when listening to music. If this amp is within your budget I wouldn't even bother checking out others.
Date published: 2020-05-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from glad we bought this one was not sure about buying this or the Denon one, but richer did not have the Denon one in stock, so we had the Sony one, early days yet but not found anything to fault about this amp (and I'm pretty fussy) also like being able to watch stuff on the TV that's through HDMI without having the amp turned on
