How High-Resolution Audio works

High-Resolution Audio works by converting analogue sound to digital at a higher and more precise rate than CDs. High-Resolution Audio can sample sound at a rate greater than 24bit/96Hz, capturing more details and subtleties, resulting in music that is as real as it gets.

Restore all your compressed files

The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX) upscales your compressed digital music files (MP3, ACC, ATRAC and WMA) and takes it closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the high-range sound lost in the compression process, DSEE HX produces your digital music files in rich, natural sound, closer to the quality of the original recording.

Enjoy Blu-ray Discs with HD soundtracks

Blu-ray Discs have up to 10 times the capacity of DVDs, so they can carry much more audio information. Built-in Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoders let you enjoy the powerful and immersive HD surround soundtracks of the latest Blu-ray Discs.

Enhanced cinematic sound

Experience rich, multi-channel audio with Dolby True HD – engineered to deliver 100 percent lossless sound across movies and music.

Hear the action all around you

For expansive cinema surround sound, DTS-HD Master Audio reproduces studio–quality lossless audio.

Everything connected

For a truly dynamic home entertainment setup, there are 5 HDMI inputs and 1 output, a front USB port, optical digital and analogue AV connections. So you can connect your TV, Blu-ray Disc™ player, smartphone and more, quickly and easily.

5 HDMI inputs and 1 output

With 5 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output, there’s space for your current equipment and scope to expand.

DSD playback via USB

A front USB port supports DSD and 24bit/192kHz high bit rate audio, so you can connect a USB device and enjoy High-Resolution Audio playback.

Premium construction. Optimum sound.

The STR-DN860 Home Cinema receiver uses the highest quality components and design – including Precision Crystal Oscillators and a reinforced frame and beam chassis –  for optimum audio visual performance.

New Pre-amplification volume IC

The pre-amp IC goes beyond what’s ordinary in this class, featuring an independent ground to avoid interference for purer sound with less distortion.

Power amplifier

A glass epoxy circuit board improves structural stability and enables greater output from the power amplifier.

Localised analogue power supply

Each digital device has its own analogue voltage regulator to keep high frequency noise from distorting the analogue signal.

Pure audio grade components

The pure audio grade block capacitor and resistors are less susceptible to interference, delivering superior sound imaging.

Chassis design

A reinforced frame and beam chassis design reduces external speaker sound pressure for more focused, powerful sound.

Large capacity power transformer

Vacuum varnishing, plus a copper ring and steel hum-proof belt, prevents noise leakage and contribute to rich, detailed bass.

Heat sink design

Newly designed fins maximise air intake, helping the amplifier circuit withstand unwanted sound pressure and keep cool.

Digital circuit board

A metal frame shields the circuit board from speaker sound pressure and keeps digital noise from entering the analogue circuits for a clearer sound.

Second generation ES solder

An environmentally-friendly alloy solder, based on high purity tin, delivers responsive and smooth sound.

Fine tune every note

Simulate the acoustics of world-renowned performance venues in your home

With Sony’s Sound Field Technologies you can emulate the acoustics of the Cary Grant Theatre, or three world-renowned concert halls.

High quality wireless audio streaming

LDAC is a new audio technology from Sony that allows you to enjoy high quality wireless audio via Bluetooth®. With three times the data transmitted, LDAC provides an enhanced wireless listening experience for all your music.
