Sony STR-DB1070 6.1 Channel A/V Receiver Dolby Digital DTS
Sony's ultra-popular "DB" series receivers borrow technology and design from their
high-end "ES" line, to deliver a truly superb sonic experience!
Just check out the STR-DB1070. It drives 100 full-bandwidth-rated watts x 6 channels of power,
utilizing "master in-line" configuration for even performance across all channels.
Add in 6.1-channel inputs and outputs, and pristine 6.1-channel processing, and you're more
than equipped for today's and tomorrow's cutting-edge home theater and music sources.
For precise, natural sound, dual 32-bit processors handle the surround decoding
(Dolby? Digital, DTS?, 6.1, Dolby Pro Logic?), Virtual Matrix 6.1, and Digital Cinema Sound? modes.
Feed digital audio to the 'DB1070's 192kHz/24-bit D/A converters, or bypass all DSP via
"analog direct" ? great for high-resolution multichannel or stereo sources like SACD.
Your video's in good hands, too, thanks to composite, S-video, and component video inputs and switching.
To its core, the 'DB1070 is on a sound quality mission. Premium frame-and-beam construction and
an aluminum front panel ward off vibrations that can distort your music. Short signal paths minimize signal
loss within the unit. To maximize clarity, Sony's OP (Optimum Pre-Amplification) Processing ensures a high
signal-to-noise ratio at all volume levels. An Analog Pureness Control even cuts the power supply to
the digital and video sections when they're not in use, to further eliminate noise.
Conveniences also abound. A learning/multibrand remote with macro capability and an on-screen
display team up for simplified system control. And you'll appreciate the hookup ease that all those
A/V inputs afford you.
