Get lost in the action with Dolby Atmos

Dolby Atmos delivers breath-taking 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.

Lifelike 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.

Immersive 5.1.2ch sound from every angle

Space-optimised 7.1ch cinematic sound

Get the real big screen experience with a fully-fledged 7.1 channel surround speaker system. The ideal way to close up any gaps in your sound space – even in bigger rooms.

All round virtual surround with S-Force PRO

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

Superior audio with Advanced D.C.A.C

If you’re working with different combinations of speakers, our seamless auto calibration technology will have them all delivering the same high-quality sound. Automatic Phase Matching aligns the phase characteristics of your speakers to the front left and right speaker channels, so that all channels work perfectly together delivering a more effective surround sound experience.

A clearer picture with High Dynamic Range

By supporting 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 colour to life. Latest HDR standards such as HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) and Dolby Vision™ are 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 favourite tracks, but with Bluetooth® Standby, you can turn your receiver on straight from your paired smartphone or tablet.

Streamlined slim design

With a robust, space-saving design, the receiver can easily fit into your media unit. Plus, a rigid chassis reduces vibration to help maintain signal fidelity.

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 beam chassis design reduces external speaker sound pressure for more focused, powerful sound.

Large capacity power transformer built for clarity

Care and attention to the highest quality audio starts with the power transformer.

A metal framework protects the circuits

The metal framework and heat sink bracket shields the circuits from sound pressure and radiation, for high-rigidity and clearer sound quality.

Expertly designed to prevent overheating

The heat sink’s specially designed fins maximise air intake, keeping the amplifier circuit cool and protecting it against unwanted sound pressure.

Control made easy with a graphic user interface

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