  • The Sony STR-DN1080 has fantastic sound quality plus Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and 4K support. This unit also has one of the best on screen interfaces you'll find on a home cinema receiver
  • The 1080 could use a few more HDMI inputs
  • Sony dropped the ball last year when they didn't include Dolby Atmos or DTS:X. They did not make the same mistake this year. The Sony STR-DN1080 has both features plus 4K compatibility, WiFi, Bluetooth, Chromecast built-in and more. If that wasn't enough...

  • No expansion possibilities, Build quality could be better, No backlight on remote control
  • The Sony STR-DN1080 is a great all-round performer that perfectly fits the bill for anyone looking for a decent sounding and feature-packed AV receiver than can also support Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. We're glad to see that Sony have simplified the front pane...

  • Stunningly insightful and authoritative, Punchy, agile and precise, Enjoyably dynamic performance, Exhaustive features, Easy to use
  • A backlit remote would be nice
  • After a gap year Sony has come back fighting, with all the specs boxes duly ticked this time. The addition of Dolby Atmos – as well as other cutting-edge features – makes the STR-DN1080 a complete AVR package for £550.But Sony has outdone itself with a hu...
