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 4 out of 5 by from Entry level Atmos A/V receiver I bought this to replace a similar model well over 15 years old. Using HDMI now. This has become my hub. Out has gone a switching box I had for Optical cables and a load of RCA cables, plus and now with two new Onkyo SKH-410 Dolby Atmos Enabled Speakers also from RS I have cool 7.1 sound. Really happy but there are a few niggles: 1. The FM aerial and socket are a joke. If you wanted FM avoid. I am not so bothered as most I might listen to can be got from other sources, but if you like pirates- forget it! 2. Not enough analogue inputs. I might invest in a switching box at some point to use the CD sockets for another analogue device I have. 3. I have a Sony SACD player that needs analogue for 5.1 discs- so player is now my CD player only and my Sony Blu Ray fortunately plays hybrid discs I have. Overall looks great, really easy to set up with its own external microphone, sounds great to my ears. Interstellar was booming last night!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bought LG C9 65inch tv (don't forget to remove screen protective as I did and thought screen was scratched, yes... embarrassing). Updated AV with Sony STR 790, THEN ADDED ATMOS SPEAKERS, for benefit of TV and AV features (Dolby Vision & ATMOS). Will say first, tweaking settings takes one to learn about set up and equipment and one should do so and learn as to change settings for different video and audio inputs, PRESETS WOULD HAVE BEEN OBVIOUS. But, without presets you will learn what you should...... Anyway, important thing NOW.... IT IS AMAZING, even without true dolby surround it still is amazing, definination of sound is cinema quality.... Also, plus 4k takes it to another level!!! Staff at Richer Sounds were brilliant, very helpful and knowledgeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bad advice, Good product After purchasing my LG OLED65C9PLA I decided I needed a new AV Receiver to make the most of it. The STR-DH790 seemed suitable, but though I better get expert advice, so off to Richer sounds went I. I was advised that it would not be compatible. EARC wouldn't work as this receiver was a bit old, and it wouldn't be updated by firmware as EARC was hardware. Long story short, this was totally inaccurate. Bought the STR-DH790 on line, and it works really well with my LG OLED65C9PLA, EARC, Atmos all good. Only little niggle, it doesn't auto power my old yamaha subwoofer. Need some advice on that, but not sure I'm going to ask Richer sounds...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect blend of performance, quality & aesthetics So I needed to replace my AVR and decided to go the Sony route in order to maximise the effectiveness of my Sony TV. The amp is superb ... simple to instal and set up (the two devices basically do it for you). Can't fault the quality of construction or performance. Wish I'd done this a while back. The range of products coupled with good pricing, reviews and advice provided by RicherSounds certainly helped in my making the right choice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Amp. Excellent Sound. Works out of the box. had a Sony 5.1 amp I'd bought from Richer Sounds and had to a few years. I upgraded my TV to Ultra HD (Samsung 43") and found the old Son woudn't support UHD. I purchased a Denon amp from Richer Sounds but it had a problem with the sound quality, and also no easy way to get tech support. I gave it a bad review on here:-( I also contected Richer Sounds and agreed a swap out with me paying the balance, and opted for one of these - I knew I'd been Ok with Sony before. The exchange process was a breeze and Richer Sounds were helpful and fast. This Amp is great! I simply plugged my TV, Sky Q box, Blu Ray DVD and 5.1 speaker set up into it, switched it on and eveything worked. Sound is great, all the kit comes on and off together - grreat! Only down side is the poor FM tuner. There's no AM (which isn't really a problem) but the FM aerial socket isn't a coax plug but a PCB edge connecter style plus - really small and useless for a coax lead (I'm in the process of making an adapter) it isn't RDS either, so once progremmed you will need to manually label each station pre-set. The supplied aerial isn't fit for puropse, it;s just a single peice of single strand cable with the weird connector at one end - pick up just 3 stations as it is :-(( I know there is lots of hoo-hah around the future of FM and DAB etc. so no real investment in FM / DAN tuners at the moment, but at least use a proper aerial plug! I'd prefer Sony not to include ANY tuner and just have the Amp and then but a seperate DAB/FM tuner. An upside is the simple config of any speaker config. from 5.1 to 7.2.2. I'm running 5.1 but will soon be investing in 2 Atmos speakers and going 5.1.2.
