Key Features

Premium construction for optimum sound

Premium construction for optimum sound

For optimum audio-visual performance, the STR-DN860 uses the highest quality components and design. The rigid steel chassis uses a frame and beam design to reduce external speaker pressure for more focused sound. While a resin-coated circuit board improves structural stability and enables greater output from the power amplifier. The unique heat sink design maximises air intake into the amplifier circuit, helping to withstand unwanted sound pressure-all combining to deliver powerful, refined sound.

Large Capacity Power Transformer

Large Capacity Power Transformer

A process of vacuum varnish achieves flat and even varnishing on internal wiring for the power transformer. Inclusion of both a copper short-ring and steel hum-proof belt around the coil and the core prevents noise leakage. This achieves rich bass and fine reproduction of image detail plus more powerful bass and lower frequency drive. The level of detail helps deliver more accurate acoustic bass and vocals, offering a new sense of clarity with space.

Heat Sink Design

Heat Sink Design

By studying the fin shape and controlling the uniformity, good and stable sound can be achieved. The amplifier circuit is able to better withstand unwanted sound pressure.

Digital circuit board

Digital circuit board

The circuit board for the digital stage is secured with strong metal frames to protect the board from speaker sound pressure. This heat sink bracket takes on the duty of shielding the digital circuit from unwanted radiation, and shields the high impedance circuit in the main body from unnecessary noise, thereby realising clearer sound quality.

Second generation ES solder

Second generation ES solder

Years of sound engineering experience and continuous sound testing by Sony helped to create an ES-grade sound quality solder. A high purity tin base is mixed with small amounts of specially chosen metal elements to create a special alloy capable of delivering sound that is responsive and very smooth.

Digital Signal Processing (DSP)

Digital Signal Processing (DSP)

The STR-DN860 incorporates a powerful DSP that supports the latest surround sound formats and ensures the highest accuracy in the decoding of Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, dts High-Resolution Audio and dts HD Master Audio, Dolby Pro Logic IIx, Dolby Digital and dts Digital Surround. DTS 96/24, DTS-ES Discrete 6.1, DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 and DTS Neo:6 format can also be processed.

High-Resolution Audio with Direct Stream Digital (DSD)

High-Resolution Audio with Direct Stream Digital (DSD)

Enjoy studio-quality sound thanks to the Direct Stream Digital (DSD) audio codec - designed specifically for High-Resolution Audio. This 1-bit format utilises a stream of very high frequency 1s and 0s to recreate audio waveforms at a higher resolution than conventional codecs. The result is clearer, crisper, High-Resolution Audio quality. The STR-DN860 supports DSD 5.6MHz (2ch) decoding thru USB and network connections, as well as DSD 2.8MHz (up to 5ch) decoding thru HDMI, USB and network.

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

7.2 channel receiver for immersive surround sound

7.2 channel receiver for immersive surround sound

Lose yourself in entertainment, thanks to 7.2 channels of room-filling surround sound and 165W per channel of power output. A dedicated channel enables you to connect two active subwoofers, so you can distribute bass evenly around the room. So whether you're watching movies, playing games, or listening to your favourite songs, you'll enjoy a next-level entertainment experience.

Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio

Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio

STR-DN860 supports both Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio to enable Blu-ray Disc soundtracks to provide unsurpassed audio quality.

Advanced Digital Cinema Auto Calibration

Advanced Digital Cinema Auto Calibration

Enjoy immersive movie sound wherever you choose to sit. Advanced Digital Cinema Automatic Calibration (ADCAC) optimises audio performance to ensure well balanced sound. Use the supplied mic to measure the acoustic properties of your room in relation to where you sit, and the position of your speakers. The system adjusts and tunes sound accordingly, eliminating any weak sound spots to establish a wide, natural sound stage.

Sound Optimiser for clear audio at any volume

Sound Optimiser for clear audio at any volume

Enjoy clear, dynamic sound at any volume thanks to a built-in sound optimiser. The A/V receiver automatically measures speaker efficiency and adjusts the frequency response based on audibility. As a result, a rich sound atmosphere is created-even when watching or listening to content at a normal room volume level.

Centre Speaker Lift Up

Centre Speaker Lift Up

Centre speakers are typically positioned below the screen, so all centrally located sounds come from below the screen. This feature enables the centre speaker to appear to be located at the position of the screen. The height of the sound from the centre speaker can be raised to a desired height. (This works with actual installed front high speakers.) The centre speaker lift up can be set to 0 (OFF) or between 1 and 10. With a higher setting the centre position is raised, so listeners can customise this function to suit their preferences. This function can be used with A.F.D. mode (which adds no sound field) and movie modes like HD-Digital Cinema Sound, etc.

In-ceiling speaker mode

In-ceiling speaker mode

This feature will virtually re-locate the Front and Centre speakers of the in-ceiling speakers to around the screen. Now the customer will hear their characters' voices coming from the screen instead of the ceiling. This mode also makes music sound more natural and rich in the room with in-ceiling speakers.

HD Digital Cinema Sound

New Pre-amplification volume IC (TBD)

New Pre-amplification volume IC (TBD)

Newly developed for the STR-DN860, the pre-amplifier IC CXD90035, completely separates the ground in the IC and draws it outside of the IC. As a result, interference between each stage is eliminated, enabling high stability amplification to realise high-quality sound with rich low frequencies. In addition, the internal amplification circuit's new design improves excess properties and reduces distortion, for sound with a more open and airy feel.

Power Amplifier

Power Amplifier

The STR-DN860 offers improved structural stability for better sound via the analogue signal path. This circuit is located on a glass epoxy board in order to achieve higher speed and power.

Localised Analogue Power Supply

The supply-ground path around the devices is voltage regulated locally to ensure that high frequency elements are minimised, thereby reducing electromagnetic radiation from the circuit and keeping the analogue signal path and amplifier circuit noise free. This design delivers an improvement in the signal-to-noise ratio of digital audio and digital video signals so low frequency sound is more defined, with greater purity and reality.

Sony Tuned Electrical Components

Large sized custom made block electrolytic capacitors are used for the main power supply. Selected audio grade resistors are used in all analogue signal paths.Large sized resistors are used together with the original type at selected critical locations. A bigger sized body offers less impedance drift from any thermal effect caused by current flow. This helps the amplifier to achieve a higher grade of sound imaging.
