New Pre-amplification volume IC (TBD) Newly developed for the STR-DN860, 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.

Power Amplifier The STR-DN860 offers improved structural stability for better sound via the analogue signal path. This circuit is located on a glass epoxy board in order to achieve higher speed and power.

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.

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 analog 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-DN860 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. While a resin-coated circuit board improves structural stability and enables greater output from the power amplifier. The unique heat sink design maximizes air intake into the amplifier circuit, helping to withstand unwanted sound pressure - all combining to deliver powerful, refined sound.

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.

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.

Digital Signal Processing (DSP) The STR-DN860 incorporates a powerful DSP that supports the latest surround sound formats and ensures the highest accuracy in the decoding of Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, dts High-Resolution Audio and dts HD Master Audio, Dolby Pro Logic IIx, Dolby Digital and dts Digital Surround. DTS 96/24, DTS-ES Discrete 6.1, DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 and DTS Neo:6 format can also be processed.

D.L.L (Digital Legato Linear) The STR-DN860 is equipped with a 7 channel analog amplifier for use in a full 7.2 audio system. In addition, this receiver provides the options of Speaker B and Bi-amping. Thus, the surround back speaker amplifiers can be assigned to either speaker B or bi-amplification use.
