Get Lost in the Action with Dolby Atmos

Dolby Atmos delivers breathtaking realism with 360º surround sound by accurately positioning sound from every angle in your environment – even from above. The result is rich audio that completely envelops you. 

Life-Like Sound Whatever the Setup with DTS:X

DTS:X decoding delivers multi-dimensional surround sound that adapts to your speaker configuration in real time. Sound is positioned precisely around and above you, thanks to object-based audio decoding. 

7.2ch Cinematic Sound

Get the real big screen experience with a fully-fledged 7.2 channel surround speaker system. 

Virtual Surround with S-Force PRO

Ideal for smaller rooms, S-Force PRO front surround delivers a virtual surround sound experience using only two speakers. 

Guarantee the Best Sound in Every Room

Since every room is different, Advanced Digital Cinema Auto Calibration (Advanced D.C.A.C.) analyzes the room’s acoustics, calibrates, and then optimizes the sound, ensuring the best sound in every room, and with Automatic Phase Matching (APM) your surround sound experience will be even better. Even if you are working with a different combination of speakers, APM works by automatically aligning the phase characteristics of each speaker, so that all the channels work perfectly together 

A Clearer Picture with High Dynamic Range

With High Dynamic Range (HDR) signal pass-through, you can enjoy the incredible jump in contrast and brightness it brings – and the additional shadow detail and highlights further enhance picture detail and brings color to life. The latest HDR standards such as HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) and Dolby Vision are also supported. 

Consistently Stunning 4K Quality

 Maintain 4K quality from source to screen – the 4K pass-through feature allows data to pass through the receiver without compromising image quality and is HDCP 2.2 compatible.

Smarter Bluetooth Connectivity

Not only can you connect to the STR-DH790 through Bluetooth and play all your favorite tracks, but with Bluetooth Standby, you can turn your receiver on straight from your paired smartphone or tablet.

Get Connected

Just plug in and press play. With four HDMI inputs, optical/coaxial digital and analog audio connections, you can easily connect your UHD Blu-ray Disc player, gaming console, and more. 

Low-Profile Design

With a low-profile, space-saving design, the receiver fits easily into any conventional AV cabinet 

Powerful 3 DSPs

3 powerful digital signal processors support the latest sound formats like Dolby Atmos/DTS:X, ensuring the highest accuracy in signal decoding. 

Power Amplifier for Minimal Distortion

The power amplifier uses a glass-epoxy circuit board for reduced vibration and distortion, giving clear, high power from each of the discrete amplifiers. 

Constructed for Precision 

A reinforced frame and rigid beam chassis reduces vibration induced distortion caused by speaker sound pressure to very low levels maintaining signal fidelity for an even better sound.

Large Capacity Power Transformer Built for Clarity

 Care and attention to the highest quality audio starts with the power transformer, ensuring the right dose of current is always ready 

Expertly Designed to Prevent Overheating 

The heat sink’s specially designed fins maximize air intake, helping to dissipate heat keeping the amplifier circuitry cool and protecting it against unwanted sound pressure. 

Easy-to-Use Graphic User Interface

It’s easy to navigate your receiver’s settings thanks to an intuitive user interface. Control what you watch, identify which devices are connected, and choose how you want to listen with pre-set sound modes. 

The Way the Artists Truly Intended 

Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound in higher-than-CD quality with High-Resolution Audio. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker, so it feels like the artist is performing right in front of you. 

DSD Decoding 

Co-developed for High-Resolution Audio by Sony and Phillips, the companies behind the original CD format, DSD offers a revolutionary way of capturing and playing back audio. Its sampling frequency is 64x that of CD.
