Sony intros 3D-capable STR-DN1010 A/V receiver
Sony has introduced 4 new A/V receivers today, one of which is the company's first 3D-capable receiver. The STR-DN1010 supports 3D pass-through from connected devices to a compatible HDTV through HDMI 1.4 (4 supporting ports), has 7.1 channels, supports all the HD audio codecs, upscales content to 1080/24p, sports a further 3 component ports, and supports Sony's S-AIR technology so with the addition of a few separately purchased components can stream wireless audio to over 10 rooms. It's a bit pricey at $500 but given the relative newness of the 3D market, what can we really expect?
Sony's other 3 A/V receivers announced today don't have the same 3D support but similar features on a declining scale according to price. The STR-DH810, STR-DH710 and STR-DH510 will cost $400, $300 and $230, respectively, when released in March. The 3D STR-DN1010 won't ship until June.
