"Sony has once again produced a stellar budget amp that offers a huge performance at an excellent price." 'What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision magazine'. Group test winner. 5-star review. Tested at £400

Powerful, enveloping sound

When it comes to power, the latest STR-DN860 is as impressive as ever. The Sony is capable of outputting 150W per channel at 6 ohms (95W at 8 ohms), allowing great flexibility in your choice of speakers and room size. The Sony STRDN860 uses a rigid, vibration resistant casing for the lowest sound distortion possible. It also uses specially selected components 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 added 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 STRDN860 is also compatible with High-Resolution Audio. This offers a sound that's far more natural sounding than standard audio. The STR-DN860 supports DSD 5.6MHz (2ch) decoding via USB and network connections, as well as DSD 2.8MHz (up to 5ch) decoding via HDMI, USB and network.

Hollywood inspired Digital Cinema Sound
The STRDN860 is also capable of some very clever sound processing. HD Digital Cinema Sound is a Sony developed technology designed to recreate the acoustics heard in Hollywood sound theatres. Utilising this mode with the front height channels gives a greater depth and accuracy to the sound. Imagine as a helicopter comes from above and lands, you'll hear the change in height as the movie unfolds on-screen.

4K upscaling and HDCP2.2
A native 4K source can be passed directly through to 4K HDMI IN with the now standard HDCP2.2. Standard HD resolution can be enjoyed with higher quality and more visible detail thanks to video upscale technology. Previously, only upscaling from 1080/24p up to 4K/30p was possible, however for the new STR-DN860 there's no limitation for the input video resolution.

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, straight to the receiver.

Spotify Connect and Google Cast
Spotify Connect lets you keep listening to your music, seamlessly, from your smartphone to home system when you arrive back. Google Cast lets you stream music from your Android phone effortlessly to the Sony, for simple, wireless sound.

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.

A fabulous all-rounder in so many respects, you simply can't go wrong with the Sony STRDN860.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product does what it says The features of the AMP are what I expected and have not been disappointed so far....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this product. Purchased this product 18 months ago, returned after about a month later and hive a replacement by richer sounds Sollihul, ( God service ) on various occasions had problems when switching on, mainly no sound, left for a few minutes,switched on again and hey presto working normally,just put it down to gremlins. Over the past few weeks this was gettin noticeably worse, when the final issue came in the form of PROTECTION MODE , absolutely dead, nothing, no sound. Returned to Richer sounds paid £65 and amp was sent for investigation, I have now, after Two weeks, have just been informrd that my amp is beyond economic repair, I won't go into all the details yet as I need to read the full report, but have been informed by richer sounds that my amp has blownn a HDMI motherboard, caused by the amp being turned on and of to often. I was never informed by richer sounds or Sony that I must turn my amp of when I have finished with it or gone to bed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sony quality Unit is built to look like a pre-amp and main amp. It's looks are pleasing with both remote control and amp., being of an uncluttered design. The sound is first-class, with both stereo and surround, very impressive. I would have preferred two HDMI outputs instead of two sub-woofer outlets.Most people, I think would like to use with a TV as well as a projector, I have had a few Sony products. This one keeps up the tradition of quality, and useability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent piece of kit Bought this to work with a couple of other Sony multi-room wireless speakers I have. Primarily connected to just a pair of floor standing Yanaha speakers, so not using the the 7.1 surround sound features, but it is connected to DVD player, Sky+ and TV. Music is accessed from Synology NAS, and it all works a treat - music throughout the house, plus the ability to take a portable speaker outside. It really does show up the restrictions of MP3 encoding!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great amp but no instructions Great piece of kit, amazing sound. The names of the channels don't quite match the remote buttons, but no big deal. Disappointing that the instruction manual is only found online (if you know you have to look). Easy to set up without the manual. but you will need it to be able to fully utilise the unit. Amazing sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good rich sound Very good for listening to music especially. But good all rounder as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound for pound is amazing I purchased this Sony strdn860 over the phone, it was delivered the next day, and within a short time i had it up and running. The sound quality of this sony is excellent, i only wanted the services of internet radio, cinema, tv, and cd, however i did find that it was not quite powerful enough for my large living room, oh dear!. I phoned Richer sounds customer service dept. and spoke to Mark Burchall, he explained the options open to me and i returned this unit to Richer sounds Brighton. Mark even sent an email to Brighton, as i do not have a printer, he really did go the extra mile for me, and for that i thank you. At Brighton i was greeted at the door by manager Damien And Voy, they gave me advice on what to go for, and took time to explain all the av receivers i should be considering, amazing guys. A huge thankyou , to Mark, Damien and Voy, i shall be going back to Brighton for my purchase, brilliant company, brilliant staff, Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and easy set up Simple set up with included mic. Sound is clear and crisp and feels full and deep. Wireless connectivity is easy and quick to access. Very pleased with the features and quality of the amp especially at this price. Although would still be happy at RRP!
