7.2 channel Home Cinema AV receiver with NFC One-touch connectivity

Think you know home cinema? Think again. The STR-DN850 AV receiver features 4K Ultra HD video pass-through for movies in bright, lifelike detail, while High-Resolution Audio lets you hear the nuances of live music.

Audio output

Immerse yourself in room-filling audio with 7 audio channels and 2 subwoofers – delivering 150W of power output per channel.

HDMI inputs and outputs

There’s space to connect video and audio equipment with 5 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output.

Wireless connectivity

Stream music and videos wirelessly to your receiver via NFC One-touch, Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi.

Hear your music at its best

Whether it’s High-Resolution Audio, CDs or MP3s ̶ listen to your music in the highest possible sound quality. The STR-DN850 supports High-Resolution Audio formats such as DSD, FLAC, WAV and ALAC, as well as formats like MP3, Apple AAC, ATRAC and Windows WMA – restoring their quality closer to that of the original.

How High-Resolution Audio works1

Listen like you’re in the recording studio

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.

7.2 channels for dynamic surround sound

A 7.2 channel AV receiver enables truly dynamic surround sound, while Digital Cinema Automatic Calibration (DCAC) optimises audio performance – so you can position your speakers where you like, and still experience well balanced sound.
Enhanced cinematic sound.
Hear the action all around you.

Upscale picture quality closer to 4K Ultra HD2

The STR-DN850 upscales Full HD movies and TV programmes closer to 4K Ultra HD quality. See up to four times the resolution of Full HD ̶ 4K Ultra HD brings lifelike detail to whatever you’re watching.

Everything connected

For a dynamic home entertainment setup, there’s 5 HDMI inputs and 1 HMDI output, optical digital and analogue AV connections. There’s room for your current equipment ̶ including your TV, Blu-ray Disc™ player and speakers ̶ and there’s scope to expand.

Premium construction. Optimum sound.

The STR-DN850 Home Cinema receiver uses the highest quality components and design ̶ including improved circuitry and a reinforced frame and beam chassis ̶ for optimum audio visual performance.

Heat sink design

Air intake is maximised, helping the amplifier circuit withstand unwanted sound pressure and keep cool.

Power, amplified

A resin-coated circuit board improves structural stability and enables greater output from the power amplifier.

A sound structure

A reinforced frame and beam chassis design reduces external speaker sound pressure for more focused, powerful 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 including the Berlin Philharmoniker, Concertgebouw Amsterdam and Musikverein Wien.
