"Well-featured, with a detailed and precise performance to match, it has taken on board the criticisms of last year's model to make this the £400 amp to beat."What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Magazine. 5-Star review, tested at £400.

Power with control

Just like its predecessor, the Sony STRDN850 uses a rigid, vibration resistant casing for the lowest sound distortion possible and selected components for class-leading sound quality. Producing up to 145W per channel at 6 ohms gives great flexibility in the choice of speakers and will fill larger rooms comfortably.

Bi-amp mode
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, but you'll need to bi-wire them. The result is added control and a wider, more dynamic sound - both in stereo and surround modes.

High-resolution audio compatible
In addition to offering room-shaking power, the Sony STRDN850 is compatible with High-Resolution Audio, giving audiophile sound quality that's far more natural sounding. It's also capable of some clever sound processing, such as HD Digital Cinema Sound to recreate the acoustics in Hollywood sound theatres. Used with the front height channels it gives the sound greater depth and accuracy - imagine as a helicopter comes from above and lands, you'll hear the change in height as the movie unfolds on-screen.

4K upscaling
Taking video processing to the next level, this talented Sony can upscale to 4K, giving four times the resolution of 1080p HD. With 4K screens now readily available, this Sony AV receiver has comprehensive levels of future proofing. It also upscale signals to 1080p for the best image quality with Full HD TVs and projectors. The HDMI sockets also allow 4K pass-through for hassle-free switching and viewing without having to turn the receiver on.

Networking with NFC, Wi-Fi and AirPlay
With Ethernet and Wi-Fi built-in, support for Apple's AirPlay, and NFC Bluetooth, the Sony covers all networking bases. NFC via Bluetooth lets you sync compatible portable devices with just a swipe, while with AirPlay streams music from your Apple device along with music apps like Spotify. Additionally, you can stream music via DLNA from other sources such as your laptop or NAS drive and by using the SongPal app you can control it all from your smartphone.

Comprehensive connections

Five HDMI inputs ensure that you can connect up all of your devices, with one front mounted HDMI port for a camcorder or games console. In addition, you'll also find a front-mounted USB socket for an iPod or iPhone. Using this digital connection improves the sound quality and even charges your device too. If you have compatible BRAVIA Sync devices you can also control them all with one remote.

Easy to set up
The Advanced Digital Cinema Auto Calibration with Auto Phase Matching makes setting up your speakers simple. By placing the included microphone in your seating position, the Sony will automatically calibrate the system, taking into account the distance from the speakers, their placement, and phase and delay analysis to give you the best sound possible. With the emphasis on simplicity, Sony has ensured that you can adjust the settings, change inputs and get the most from your AV receiver with ease.

With 4K and High Resolution Audio compatibility, the Sony STRDN850 is not just equipped for now, it's the AV receiver of the future.
