DSD Native Playback
  • Co-developed for High-Resolution Audio by Sony and Philips, the companies behind the original CD format, DSD offers a revolutionary way of capturing and playing back audio. Its sampling frequency is 128 times that of CD, and it offers 8 times the data volume of CD to take audio to a whole new level. Totally different from PCM format, DSD uses a pulse-density modulation encoding method to store audio, expressing sound through the pulse intensity of a 1-bit digital audio stream that more closely represents the nature of an analog audio waveform. This enables the delivery of warm, natural analog-like sound coupled with the digital advantages of wide dynamic range and frequency response surpassing 100 kHz. Since the STR-DN1070 supports DSD (Direct Stream Digital) native playback, there is no conversion involved so DSD content can be fully enjoyed without losing any of its original purity. 
High Quality DA Converter
  • DSD delivers audio with an immense sense of space and accurate representation of an artist’s original vision. By selecting DSD Native playback, DSP processing is bypassed to deliver DSD original purity as-is, but if you prefer you can select DSP processing with 32-bit DA conversion as well. What’s more, multi-channel 5.1ch surround with DSD 5.6 MHz delivers a truly immersive home theater experience in which the advantages of DSD can be appreciated to their fullest.
32 Bit Processing
  • Non DSD native playback is also supported, in which DA conversion is performed on the DSP output that has been processed in 32 bits "as is." The superior DSP technology that Sony has cultivated for AVR enables all features to be upgraded by undergoing 32-bit DA conversion.
7.2 Channel Receiver For Immersive Surround Sound
  • Lose yourself in entertainment, thanks to 7.2 channels of room-filling surround sound and 165 W 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 favorite songs, you’ll enjoy a next-level entertainment experience.

In-Ceiling Speaker Mode 
  • This feature will virtually re-locate the Front and Center 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.
Center Speaker Lift Up
  • Center speakers are typically positioned below the screen, so all centrally located sounds come from below the screen. This feature enables the center speaker to appear to be located at the position of the screen. The height of the sound from the center speaker can be raised to a desired height. (This works with actual installed front high speakers.) The center speaker lift up can be set to 0 (OFF) or between 1 and 10. With a higher setting the center position is raised, so listeners can customize 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.
Sound Optimizer for Clear Audio At Any Volume
  • Enjoy clear, dynamic sound at any volume thanks to a built-in sound optimizer. 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.

  • With three zone listening, you can connect three sets of speakers to the STR-DN1070 and listen to the same audio output across three rooms, with 3.2ch in the main room and 2ch each in the other two rooms. The receiver can also control two separate source inputs at once. Select which signal is sent to each listening zone, so you can watch a DVD in your living room with 5.2ch and listen to a CD at the same time in another room using 2ch. Of course you can bring it all together into one room as an immersive 7.2ch surround experience.
High Audio-Quality Capacitors
  • Newly developed high audio-quality surface-mounted electrolytic capacitors, together with a more robust DAC power source and optimized substrate patterning, help to achieve a stable low range with high resolution.
Fine Sound Resistor (Surface-Mounted Resistor for Audio Quality)
  • The trend in electronic circuitry is increasingly high density, also increasing the need for resistors that can be mounted on compact surfaces. Sony therefore collaborated with component manufacturers to develop the “Fine sound resistor”, a high audio quality surface-mounted resistor. In addition to using special resistance materials and a newly developed structure, pure copper was used in the electrodes to achieve high volumes of data for rich, vivid audio quality.
Control Made Easy with a Graphic User Interface
  • It’s easy to navigate your receiver’s settings, thanks to an intuitive home menu. Control what you watch, identify which devices are connected, and choose how you want to listen with pre-set sound modes.
Power Amplifier
  • The STR-DN1070 offers improved structural stability for better sound via the analog signal path. This circuit is located on a glass epoxy board in order to achieve higher speed and power.
Precision Crystal Oscillator
  • All master clocks for digital audio sources, especially HDMI, can be regenerated from this crystal in purest quality. As a result, the sound produced delivers a clear and rich sound image while bass is deeper and more solid. Typical crystal oscillators are hermetically sealed and filled with nitrogen, but this method is susceptible to external vibrations that can interfere with the clock signal to produce jitter. So for the STR-DN1070, a vacuum-sealed Crystal Oscillator was chosen. This precision crystal oscillator is further enhanced with gold-plated electrodes. Gold is a well-known material for oscillators most notable for its property of adhesion to quartz that is strong enough to maintain contact even under strong physical shocks, and not forming oxides that can interfere with conductivity.
Pre-Amplification Volume IC
  • Newly developed for the STR-DN1070, 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 realize 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.
Jitter Elimination Circuit
  • For STR-DN1070, an ES type jitter elimination circuit is used for all digital audio sources. It is a combination of carefully tuned analog and digital PLL circuitry. Unlike the conventional method, the target value is not the input master clock, but the timing reference of a precision crystal oscillator. This analog PLL has a high cut-off frequency, following the jitter with low timing reference. In addition, the circuit also has a digital PLL, and the input master clock and VCO are compared by this digital PLL.
Localized Analog Power Supply
  • The supply-ground path around the devices is voltage regulated locally to ensure that high frequency elements are minimized, thereby reducing electromagnetic radiation from the circuit and keeping the analog 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.
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.
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.
Premium Construction For Optimum Sound
  • For optimum audio visual performance, the STR-DN1070 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. All the four corners are embossed to better support the weight of the power transformer and heat sink. The heat sink design maximizes air intake into the amplifier circuit, helping to withstand unwanted sound pressure — all combining to deliver powerful, refined sound.
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 
  • 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 realizing clearer sound quality.
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.
