Sony - 3 new models of AV amplifiers

Sony is going to release 3 new models of 7.1ch AV amplifiers.

The high-end model "STR-DN1050" (¥62,000) among these 3 new models supports high-resolution audio playback including DSD/Direct Stream Digital audio data (2.8MHz). The standard model "STR-DN850" (¥52,000) also supports high-resolution audio, but up to 192kHz/24bit. These 2 models have Wi-Fi functionality that allows you to play audio wirelessly. Also, to give a comfortable optical controlling experience, a GUI (Graphical User Interface) is applied to allow you to intuitively select what you want to do.

The entry model "STR-DH750" (¥40,000) is able to play audio up to 48kHz/16bit. Even though it doesn't support a GUI and shows menus in text format, by installing the application "SongPal" for smartphone/tablet, your smartphone and tablet can be used as a remote control via Bluetooth connection. So, you can have a graphical user interface to control "STR-DH750" on your smart device.

All 3 feature NFC functionality, Bluetooth 3.0 and a USB terminal.
