QUALITY PARTS FOR SUPERIOR SOUND
Every component in the Sony STR-DN1080 has been designed for optimal sound quality.
- The fortified metal framework and heat sink bracket shield the circuits from sound pressure and radiation, allowing them to achieve clearer sound quality.
- The ES grade sound quality solder uses high purity tin base mixed with small amount of specially chosen metal elements, producing a sound that is tight and refined.
- The pre-amplifier IC CXD9003 eliminates interference and enables stable amplification to realise high-quality sound with rich low frequencies.
- DSD playback without any conversion enables the actual DSD content to be played back as-is, without losing any of its original purity.
- Newly developed high audio-quality surface mounted electrolytic capacitors, together with a more robust DAC power source and optimized substrate patterning, help to achieve a stable low range with high-resolution.
- The high quality surface-mounted resistor uses pure copper electrodes to attain high volume data conductivity for rich, vivid audio quality, and is designed to address the limited space of high-density circuitry.
- The new pre-amp goes way beyond other receivers in this class for optimum High-Resolution Audio delivery. A single-point ground and independent power supply promotes purer sound with less interference.
- For greater stability and output power a glass-epoxy circuit board is used. Unlike cheaper resin boards, internal vibrations are reduced for less distortion, so you just get clear high power from each of the discrete amplifiers.
- Specifically designed for audio from HDMI sources, vacuum-sealed oscillators prevent signal jitter and ensure high resolution music and surround sound formats are faithfully reproduced with a wide sound stage.
- The Sony STR-DN1080 has a combination of carefully tuned analogue and digital circuitry reduces jitter to ensure accurate real-time audio processing.
- Each digital device has its own analogue voltage regulator to keep high frequency noise from distorting the analogue signal.
- Audio component – Pure audio grade components
- The pure audio grade block capacitor and resistors are less susceptible to interference, delivering superior sound imaging to your Sony STR-DN1080.
- A reinforced frame and beam chassis design reduces external speaker sound pressure for more focused, powerful sound.
- Care and attention to the highest quality audio starts with the power transformer. Internal wiring is vacuum-coated for uncoloured sound, and a specially developed copper and steel shield ensures powerful bass and accurate vocal frequencies.
- 3 powerful digital signal processors support the latest 3D surround sound formats, ensuring the highest accuracy in signal decoding.

Seiko’s obsession with audio products has not kept Crossroads away from fashion, and is highly recognized by international design competition platforms such as Red Dot in structure and appearance design. “From complexity to simplicity”, Crossroads
EXCELLENT SOUND QUALITY
Crossroads is obsessed with audio product research and development, pursuing accurate, clean and smart sound. And Crossroads attaches great importance to listening to the ears for a long time, so that the treble is crisp and neat, the midrange is slowly gurgling, and the bass is heavy and not noisy. People will not feel tired for long-lasting listening, which is part of the Crossroads sound quality (EAR) ear program.
Crossroads and Microlab, a well-known domestic speaker brand, share the research and development results of each other’s acoustic technology, “net listening technology”, “cloud playback-multi-room wireless audio technology”, unique box structure erection, aluminum belt tweeter and so on. The deep background of technology makes Crossroads more prominent in the audio market.
In 2008, Paul Bente (formerly JBL President) founded Crossroads in the United States. Paul Bente and his team are devoted to the development and application of speakers. With more than thirty years of industry precipitation and accumulation, the brand has stubbornly maintained a very critical and pure pursuit of sound quality from the day of its birth.
