State-of-the-art cinema sound

This stylish and solid AV receiver fuses form and function, for the first time ever with built-in wireless connectivity, also five HDMI ports, and HD Digital Cinema Sound and Advanced Digital Cinema Auto Calibration technologies to deliver a powerful, precise cinematic sound.

Made for the movies

“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.”

World’s first wireless AV receiver

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.

Every detail of every sound

From the subtle nuance of a whisper to the deep boom of an explosion, the STR-DN1030 brings every aspect of film soundtracks to life in rich, detailed audio with crystal clarity. It even calibrates the perfect sound for your home cinema room, using Advanced Digital Cinema Auto Calibration to optimise surround sound based on the speaker positions.

Tailor your ideal sound

Enhance your listening pleasure with a range of acoustic modes, from Jazz Club to Sport – so you can select the best sound setting for your entertainment. There’s even a mode that re-creates the soaring dynamics of the Berliner Philharmonic concert hall, for a truly classical sound.
