The Sony STR-DH720 7.1 Channel 3D AV Receiver is a multi-channel receiver with exceptional audio and video processing capabilities, featuring a power rating of 105 watts per channel.
It features a total of six high definition inputs including four HDMI and two component inputs so you can hook up all your gear. The front panel offers a USB port so you can hook up your iPod or iPhone and play videos and music, while a front-panel composite video and analog audio connections allow you to conveniently hook up a camcorder or digital camera.
The STR-DH720 offers support for 3D pass through over HDMI (up to 1080p), so if you have 3D content and the required 3D accessories it can deliver realistic three dimensional visuals in high definition. It also features Sony's 24p True Cinema. Since most films were shot and mastered at 24 frames per second (fps), this allows for a more cinema-like picture quality.
This receiver also upscales analog source material up to 1080i video via HDMI with Faroudja DCDi (Directional Correlational Deinterlacing) Edge processing. The STR-DH720 employs the same Faroudja Labs upconversion technology that allowed for a smooth transition to HDTV with legacy NTSC material, minimizing the jagginess that conventional upconverters introduce to diagonal edges in video.
This receiver supports an array of Dolby and DTS audio formats like Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD Master Audio and Dolby Pro Logic IIz that are encoded on Blu-ray discs, so you can hear audio as close as possible to the way it was intended to be heard. With support for an Audio Return Channel (ARC), you'll only need one cable for your TV audio. You can control other HDMI devices even when the unit is powered off, and setup is made as easy as possible with Sony Digital Cinema Auto Calibration.
If you have other Sony equipment that has BRAVIA Sync, that means you can control everything with one remote. Support for 3D over HDMI and a host of audio formats along with additional features like analog upscaling and playback from your iPhone or iPod makes this receiver fully capable of managing a high-powered home theater system. Packed into a high gloss black package, the STR-DH720 blends effortlessly into any setup.
