Atmos AV Receiver

”The STR-DN1080 remains an unbeatable AV amplifier at this price.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 Product of the Year 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 5 out of 5 by from Bargain price for high end kit Had to upgrade my onkyo av receiver because of no 4k passthrough and had upgraded to 7.2 I was perfectly happy with the sound of the onkyo until I connected the Sony. I cannot believe the leap in quality. The sound stage, punch and clarity are stunning. Even using a stereo source the quality is far above what you expect from an AV amp. Atmos and phantom speakers are great additions to have but it's the sheer quality that sells this. I can't believe you can get better sound or flexibility for less than £800 making this an absolute no brainer. Only proviso is that the menu gui is a bit old school and the hdmi cec is very flaky. However I don't need cec and once setup you don't need the menus. Fantastic bit of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome detailed sound Took a little getting used to a different manufacturer product with a different sound stage but well impressed with the detailed sound on a Blu-ray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and great sound Upgraded a 15 yr old AV amp. Wasnt sure just how much better it would be but the difference is huge. Still using the old keff egg 5.1 speakers but a real upgrade in performance and surround sound quality

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ideal for my purpose I run a Pop Up cinema in rural communities under the 'Flicks in the Sticks' banner. The Sony 1080 is one of the few A/V amps which meets my needs in that using the AMP MENU many of the adjustments appear ONLY on the front panel display - not actually up on the screen. SO that means I'm able to discretly control volume - and EQ - of the centre speaker - and the rest of the speaker set up if necessary - to compensate for the size of venue, the acoustics and the size of the audience. It also does loads of other stuff which I have yet to investigate. But with a Manual of more than 200 pages and a very useful Help Guide of more than 300 pages I'm not sure I have the stamina to get to grips fully with this beast. Would have given it a perfect 5 stars had the mains lead been plugable rather than fixed into the chassis - important when the kit is constantly being packed and unpacked on it's travels round the Welsh Marches.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not fit for purpose I bought this because it had great reviews and it also has a HDMI Zone 2 function, which i now think it was put in there as an extra as it doesn't work properly or maybe i got a dodgy system, zone 2 stays on for a bit and then starts flashing black screen and no it's not the HDMI cable as when i put my old Onkyo back in, it works perfect. Put my PC into BD/DVD HDMI input and that has flashed black screen a couple of times. Put Zgemma Freesat box into input Video 1, when i go to that input, it is a black screen, i have to turn the Freesat box off/on to get a picture, ARC doesn't work on mine, good job i have a optical cable. TV button on remote doesn't work. Sound is very good and the picture is fantastic when it works. Totally shocked at how many rave reviews it's got or maybe I've just got one with a bad board. All these problems above work perfect with my old Onkyo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, great price and very fast shipping I purchased this Sony STR-DN1080 as an upgrade from another Sony I have had for many years that was to old to support all the newer audio and video formats. After reading hundred of reviews and spec sheets I decided to go with this unit. It sounds so clean, bags of power for music (bi-wired on a stereo pair of B&W 684 S1 floor standers), 5.1 sounds great with loads of control and superb dynamics (B&W HTM62 centre, B&W M1 rears and Acoustic Energy 10" subwoofer). Even after my research, it's so much more than I had hoped for and expected, plus its an absolute bargain. Yet to setup Dolby Atmos, but its on the cards, so very much looking forward to that.
