”The STR-DN1080 remains our affordable home cinema amplifier of choice”. ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 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 Appearances can be deceiving Compared to some of the smooth looking esthetic of other receivers this one let's all the work do the talking and boy does it. Combined with the q acoustics 3020i speakers, Cambridge Audio PREMIUM BANANA PLUGS and the Chord Company C-SCREEN cables the sound is punchy, encompassing and dynamic. My only gripe is the limitations of the built-in streaming platform (can still stream via Bluetooth). You have chrome cast and Spotify built-in. Amazon music will have to be streamed through the tv/firestick so tv has to be on. 4K high res images are crisp and detailed. Movies are brilliant visually and sound wise it is capable with Dolby Atmos. The unit was well ahead of its time and for the price range you cannot go wrong. Great for building a home theatre on a mid entry budget and getting that little surprise of getting more than you paid for feeling. Get it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb for the price I bought a cheaper system last year, and always had that voice in the back of my head telling me I should have spent a bit more, so I did. The downsize is I have to sell on my old one, the upside is that the extra money spent was worth every penny. Set up took a bit of time. I had to look up a couple of things, like setting the hdmi ports to enchanted as they aren’t that by default, and working out why my PS5/series x weren’t outputting games sound to the subwoofer (had to change the speaker size in the av settings to small), but the sound upgrade has been worth it. As are all the features included, like Appleplay and Dolby Vision. I wish I’d bought this a while back, and highly recommend this AV amp!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with the Sony A9F series Bought to ensure direct control of the whole system using a single remote, be that SkyQ or AppleTV, and to work well with the Sony A9F oled (KD65) so that there is seamless control and single remote use. Very pleased with the setup where Sony tv recognised the amp and auto configured its sound and video settings, followed by decent setup process for the Sony amp itself. All in all a very pleasant upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feature rich and very good sound processing. Purchased as a replacement for an aged Yamaha VXR-675 which literally blew up on me. Set up is a breeze, takes minutes and you are hand-held through it with an easy to follow on-screen process. Once set up sound is impressive and picture spot on, be it whatever standard, upto 2160 HDR. Few daft niggles worth calling out : - The remote feels cheap - Not all of the HDMI inputs have a shortcut button on the remote - find this most odd! - Of the 6 HDMI inputs, 5 support enhanced HDMI - but 1 doesn't. - Again, most odd! -When switching between inputs the display that appears at the bottom of the screen to show which you've switched to is too obtrusive, and stays on screen just a bit too long. It should be transparent (and not remain on screen for so long! - fingers crossed for a firmware update to address this) These are daft niggles and inconsequential, and don't even affect my overall rating of 5/5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real bargain Bought this a few weeks ago and I’m delighted with it. Has all the features you would expect in an AV receiver for the price. Easy to setup and sounds great with Wharfedale DX-2 speaker system as a home cinema setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional processing No trouble powering my mixed bag of home built speakers. There is no detectable noise at loud levels and the processing of a stereo (cable) source in very good. I unplugged the centre speaker to protect it in it's new position (greyhound tails) and speech has completely disappeared. The new position as the ampis quite large. The centre is a pair of peerless dome 5 1/4" mid bass and an original Motorola piezo tweeter. Yes I have a clue what I'm doing have have a self-designed crossover. KSN1165A which reaches just low enough to cross with the mid woofers. Particularly when you factor in efficiency. The amp is very simple to set up and the ic provided is a nice touch. All my systems are set up with mics and equalisation. This works nicely out of the box and is happy with my dual 6 1/2" Tang band subwoofers. Dual subs sort out all the standing wave issues of one big one. Three is better still. Chromecast is audio only. The only let-down. It gets hot so leave plenty of space around it. I'm used to class D and SMPS. This one is linear in power supply (very heavy). I don't know about the amps, but is does generate several watts at idle. Probably 20 or more as there is noticeable warmth coming off it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money. Great receiver, and very easy to set up. Loved the self calibration feature. Has breathed new life into my old set of Mission speakers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feature packed with sound to match Had it a week and am delighted with the pick as is feature packed with connectivity to most listening and viewing modes. Cannot fault the sound with the variety of listening output and quality depending on type of steam viewed. Great value for punch it packs!
