7.2-channel receiver with Bluetooth®. Dolby Atmos®, and DTS:X™
Our take on the Sony STR-DH790 by Crutchfield's Deia Z.
Immersive home theater plus easy wireless music streaming
If you're looking for powerful sound from an affordable home theater receiver, the Sony STR-DH790 is a great choice. Got a 4K TV? This 7.2-channel receiver is ready for the latest Ultra HD content. Built-in Bluetooth gives you tons of options for streaming music from a compatible device. And Dolby Atmos and DTS:X decoding delivers 360-degree surround sound for the most lifelike movie experience you can have at home.
Cinematic sound for any space
This value-packed receiver supports a 7.1 surround sound setup or a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos setup. Sony's Digital Cinema Auto Calibration system (DCAC) ensures optimal sound in any room. The included setup microphone measures your room's acoustics, allowing the receiver to adjust itself to your speakers and space.
Flexible speaker configuration options for the sound you want
The STR-DH790 gives you several different options for setting up your speakers. Even if you're starting with a pair of stereo speakers, you can still enjoy immersive surround sound effects thanks to Sony's front surround sound technology.
With seven speakers, you can choose whether you want to use the sixth and seventh channels for Surround Back or Front High speakers. Alternatively, you can use those channels to power a set of "B" speakers in another room. If you're happy with a five-speaker setup, you can bi-amp a pair of compatible front speakers for fuller, more detailed sound.
