Get the sound that your big-screen TV deserves, with the Dolby Atmos and DTS:X equipped Sony STRDH790.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X for three-dimensional sound
Dolby Atmos uses two ceiling or upwards firing speakers (5.1.2 mode) to produce a multi-dimensional, immersive sound that's a match for the finest cinemas. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. It renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also easily adapts to your existing speaker configuration. If you prefer conventional surround sound, the Sony STR-DH790 also operates in 7.2 surround mode.

DCAC for superior audio
Advanced DCAC uses Automatic Phase Matching to align the phase of your speakers. This means you don’t need to use the same speaker on all channels for perfectly seamless sound. Simply let DCAC analyse the sound and match all the speakers to the front left and right channel’s characteristics.

Optimised for 4K UHD and HDR
The STRDH790 features flexible HDMI connectivity on all four inputs. It supports HDCP 2.2 and HDR, which means you, can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video in the highest quality. The HDMI sockets allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be turned on.

Music streaming and more via Bluetooth
When you’re not watching movies, this flexible Sony is just as happy streaming music from your smartphone or tablet. Simply connect via Bluetooth and enjoy your stored music and favourite streaming services such as Spotify and Deezer. A neat extra function is the ability to power the receiver on from your smartphone, too.

High-Resolution audio compatible
As well as offering room-shaking power, the Sony STRDH790 is also compatible with High-Resolution Audio. This offers a sound that's far more natural sounding than standard audio. The STR-DH790 also supports DSD formats – with a sampling frequency that’s 64x that of conventional CD, for stunningly detailed sound.

Sleek design
With a height around half that of some traditional AV receivers, the Sony STR-DH790 is much better suited to modern day living. The compact casing makes it easy to fit in shelving units and cabinets. With Sony’s typical attention to detail, the clean styling also make this Sony more attractive than many other button-heavy receivers.

Turn your front room into a cinema, with the Sony STRDH790.

Fantastic speaker savings when bought with this amplifier, call your local store or our telesales team, now!
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Richer Sounds Sheffield: You Won't Be Disappointed I've been thinking of updating my very ancient home cinema system for some time. I had looked at various amps, but decided on the Sony DH790, for price vs performance - it seemed a pretty good match for what I wanted. I also wanted to avoid online shopping and shop locally instead, so went along to the local Richer Sounds shop - very glad I did. I spoke with the store manager, Oli, who confirmed it was a good choice of amp. I also bought some replacement rear speakers and also took the plunge into a proper Dolby Atmos system by buying addtional front speakers. It all sounds absolutely fantastic. So much better than my old system (put together piece by piece during the 90s). Oli was great - very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The whole experience was brilliant, from walking into the shop to receiving the delivery (they didn't have everying in store, which is to be expected, but it was all delivered in less than 24 hours). I enjoyed the experience so much, I went back a ferw days later or bought some more equipment. So much better than just picking things on a website - there's real people to talk to! And knowledgeable people at that. I'll certainly be back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds better than my NAD Viso 2 Only Had it for a couple of days and so far only set up to my tv which sounds so much better than my Viso 2. Set up is a bit of a merry go round and haven,t done the FM radio yet and was surprised there is no external antenna input for coax only the supplied antennae .I will report back when every thing is sorted .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great budget A reciever. Had this from the Nottingham store and so glad of the unit. A bit tricky to set up as the "easy" set up system kept defaulting back to 7.2 setup instead of 5.1 which is why I have. A bit of persevering and it's sounding great. Make sure you go into the speaker settings also, as it set my fronts to large and I needed it to set them small. It does make a difference. Good unit, good price and backed up by the excellent staff at the Nottingham store. Thanks! Simon Taylor

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the price it does the job! I bought this AV amplifier to replace as my 6 year old 5.1 Pioneer as it gave up the ghost. Plenty of power for my needs as I am using a Yamaha sub/satellite speaker system. Bought an extra sub and 2 matching Yamaha speakers from fleabay to accommodate the 3 extra outputs. Only had the 5.1 system that I had bought from Richer Sounds with my original Yamaha DTS/DD AV Amplifier 10 years ago. Quite loud at low volume settings with punchy bass coming out the subs and nice separation from the satellites. My surround music has a new lease of life. Happy to recommend!
