Sony has unveiled a new Home Cinema Network AV receiver, called the STR-DN1030 Home Cinema Network AV Receiver. The receiver supports up to 7.2 Channel audio and has 120 W per channel of power. This is the first AV receiver to include built-in wireless connectivity and AirPlay capability, and it has five HDMI ports on the back. It features HD Digital Cinema Sound and Advanced Digital Cinema Auto Calibration technologies to deliver a powerful, precise cinematic sound.
“We designed the STR-DN1030 so you can hear movies exactly as the director intended” explains Naoto Yoshioka, Home Audio Video Senior Product Manager at Sony Europe. “To create true cinematic audio, the STR-DN1030 uses HD Digital Cinema Sound, a specialised technology developed by our Sony Pictures team from careful study of Hollywood sound stage recordings. Sony Pictures have won 12 Academy Awards for Best Picture, so they know about creating amazing quality sound for the movies.”
The STR-DN1030 is truly a pioneering product. It’s the world’s first AV receiver with built-in wireless connectivity. So you can stream songs effortlessly from your iPhone, iPod or iPad with built-in AirPlay, or play music and movies from your PC, tablet and other networked devices with built-in Wi-Fi. Built-in wireless also gives you access to a limitless world of on-demand entertainment through the Sony Entertainment Network, featuring more than 15 million songs, and internet radio from thousands of stations around the world.
