Featuring HDMI 1.4 3D pass-through technology, new 7.1 channel AV receiver (110 watts power per channel @8-Ohms, 1kHz, 1% THD) is capable of supporting 3-D audio and video. It passes through the 3D video from the connected devices to a 3D compatible HD TV and also decodes HD audio codecs. It is possible to connect it to a wide variety of HD devices thanks to its Full HD 1080/24p support and 7 HD inputs (4 HDMI and 3 component).

It will be available this June in the US for $500.

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 18, 2010 – Sony today announced its first A/V receiver capable of supporting 3-D audio and video.

Featuring HDMI™ 1.4 3D pass-through technology, ample high-definition connectivity and compatibility with all of the latest Blu-ray Disc® audio formats, the new STR-DN1010 AV receiver is designed to create a simple solution for controlling any high-definition or 3D capable home theater.

“It’s important for consumers to understand the important role that audio plays in the in-home 3D experience,” said Neal Manowitz, director of Sony’s Home Audio and Video division. “By streamlining connectivity and supporting 3D hardware and software, the STR-DN1010 receiver will provide a simplified approach to 3D home theater control and performance, ensuring the best possible user experience.”

The 7.1 channel STR-DN1010 AV receiver (110 watts power per channel @8-Ohms, 1kHz, 1% THD) features full high-definition 1080/24p support and seven HD inputs in total (four HDMI and three component) allowing for connection to a wide variety of HD devices. The receiver’s HDMI 3D pass through technology supports 3D video from connected devices and passes them through to a 3D compatible high-definition television, while decoding high-resolution audio codecs.

The receiver also features an icon-driven menu system for simple device and content navigation and has the ability to upscale analog video sources to 1080p resolution via HDMI. The model also boasts a sleek piano black gloss design that matches Sony’s line of Blu-ray Disc players and televisions.

The STR-DN1010 is compatible with all advanced audio codecs, including Dolby® TrueHD, dts®-HD Master Audio and features wireless 2nd zone capabilities through Sony’s S-AIR® wireless technology. With the addition of an S-AIR transmitter (model EZW-T100) and separate S-AIR speakers (sold separately), the receiver can also drive wireless audio in up to 10 additional rooms.

The STR-DN1010 receiver also features a Digital Media Port (DMP) input for simple connection to external sources including an iPod® and iPhone® (compatible DMP accessories required and sold separately) and is compatible with both Deep Color™ and x.v.Color™.
