Moreover, the AVR includes a built-in power amplifier. The audio qualities also include high-resolution audio. The video qualities are complemented by 4K, Dolby Digital and HDR.

❷ Sony STR-DH790*
Visually, this AV receiver from Sony also knows how to convince. However, not only the exterior counts, but also the inner values of the model from 2018. Can the device convince? Within the audio functions, the improved version of DCAC shines. In other words, this feature enables an identical sound from the speakers.
The technology works in such a way that the output quality of the rear speakers directly depends on the front ones and thus are matched. The Sony AV receiver connects seven speakers as well as a woofer channel thanks to its 7.2 channel. Dolby Atmos/DTS:X ensures 3D audio. The DTS:X conveys a cinema feeling because the soundscape in the room is thus omnipresent. The user of the AV receiver is washed around by the sounds, so to speak. The Dolby Atmos provides sufficient sound effects above the heads of the people watching movies. The High Resolution Audio is characterized by an audio standard that exceeds the classic dynamic range of CDs.
