Sony Announces STR-AN1000 8K AV Receiver
Sony surprised everyone overnight with the announcement of five new 8K-capable AV Receivers, one being the successor to STR-DN1080 - the STR-AN1000.
The STR-AN1000 is a 7.2 Channel AV Received offering 8K video and immersive 3D audio in 7.2 or 5.2.2 setup with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X formats. Connectivity options also include Works with SONOS, Chromecast Built-in, Apple AirPlay, and Spotify Connect— all via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.5/6/7. Power output is stated as 7 x 165 W 6 ohms, 1 kHz, 1ch, THD 0.9%.
Supporting Dolby Vision, HDR10, Hybrid Log Gamma, and IMAX Enhanced, the AN1000 offers six HDMI inputs with two supporting full 8K and 4K/120 video sources. Two HDMI outputs similarly support full 8K and 4K/120 video sources.
One particular feature worthy of mention is that the AN1000 can also offer wireless connectivity for Sony’s SA-RS3S & SA-RS5 wireless rear speakers and SA-SW3 & SASW5 wireless subwoofers. It also provides several centre-speaker technologies, including Center Speaker Lift Up to centre the dialogue on your screen and Acoustic Center Sync, which, when mated with a Sony Bravia TV, uses the speaker as the centre channel in a surround setup. Nifty!
The Sony STR-AN1000 is priced at $899.99 in the USA, and we are eagerly awaiting UK availability and cost.
