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.

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.
