New AV receivers From Sony


Sony?s newest Wi-Fi equipped AV receivers are promising to offer you best-in-class audio and video, plus the freedom of wireless connection.

The STR-DN1040 and STR-DN840 feature a newly-developed Rigid Chassis for solid bass, audiophile-grade components and can both wirelessly stream music stored on your smartphone, tablet or PC. They offer access to cloud music services like Music Unlimited from Sony Entertainment Network, internet radio stations from all over the world and they support Apple's AirPlay.



The receivers deliver 7.2 channels of music power with HD-Digital Cinema Sound, Concert Hall mode (Berlin Philharmonic Hall, Concertgebouw Amsterdam and Musikverein Vienna) and Sound Optimiser, which tailors frequencies for extra clarity and presence. Advanced Digital Cinema Automatic Calibration (D.C.A.C.) also fine-tunes sound from each speaker to match your living room?s acoustics.

Both receivers can replay 192 kHz/24-bit audio - beyond CD quality - and support high- resolution FLAC and WAV files. Movies on Blu-ray Disc or DVD look as good as they sound, with 4K upscaling (STR-DN1040) creating extra detail for a new experience with your 4K TV or projector.

There are also inputs for Blu-ray Disc and DVD players, TV, set top box, games console, SA-CD player and other home devices. Mounted on the front panel, there?s also a USB socket for instant hook-ups with your MP3 player or flash memory drive. Support for MHL (STR-DN1040) lets you connect a smartphone or tablet to the receiver.

Both receivers allow selection of input sources or volume adjustment from the comfort of your sofa with the free TV SideView app for smartphones or tablets (iOS/Android). Also available, the Network Audio Remote app lets you browse your digital music collection and select tracks for playback through the receiver.

The new STR-DN840 AV receiver by Sony is available from May 2013, while the STR-DN1040 will be available from June.
