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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to setup instructions Only had it a week but really happy with it has improved picture and sound giving my tv a new lease of life. With the vip subscription had a great discount

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant system for the price I bought this system a couple of weeks ago after searching for the best system for the price I wanted to spend, I wanted to replace my LG system & all the reviews on this Sony were spot on.
Date published: 2022-09-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service and advice I have purchased my sound system, including turntable, through Richer Sounds. I had an idea on amplifier but they were able to advise one whether it’d be best and were able to give me tips on setting up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good A/V amplifier It is early days yet as I have had this new box less than 2 weeks but so far so good. It was very easy to wire up the speakers apart from the fact that I had to remove the banana plugs from all the speaker cables connected to the amplifier with the exception of the front left and right. The surround sound and centre speaker connections use a nice clip system which I had trouble getting my thicker speaker cables into. Setting up the 5.0 speakers using the microphone was very easy but for some reason my centre speaker is too quiet meaning watching films it is hard to hear the dialogue. Maybe I just need a new centre speaker, I just could not get a decent volume out of it. I have temporarily set the speaker system as 4.0 with any dialogue being directed out of the front left and right speakers. I am hoping to add some front left and right upward firing speakers in the near future if the wife will let me have them! I have also used the new amp to play music from a network music player connected via phones and the sound quality was superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect replacement I popped in to the shop in Oxford, and basically the tech in there did it all for me, I had a twenty year old Sony AV, which has been Brilliant, but the New LG Oled TV I have bought recently and all the features it has basically retired my old system, Soeakers too. I have now upgraded with a new Sony AV, Polk Soeakers x 5 sound is amazing including Dolby Atmos when watching films

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent replacement My old amp died & after various failed attempts to replace with a second hand one I gave up & bought this. Very easy to set up & sounds a bit richer & balanced than the old one. Pretty good value

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great new AV receiver Had this for 2 weeks now. Have it connected to my TV via ARC HDMI connection sounds great set up is a piece of cake with the calibration mic included. Bought to replace my old Maranz unit with had a noisy front right channel. Very pleased
