The Sony STR-DH830 7.1-Channel 3D AV Receiver affords both high performance and superb value. This powerful receiver supports 3D content and advanced A/V processing, multiple connections and a power rating of 140 watts per channel -- that means you can fill the living room with a total of 980 watts of awesome audio power to bring your movies, music and video games to life. Plus, it comes with a dock for your iPod or iPhone that will even charge as it's playing (but check the specs to see if yours is on the list!)

With seven HD connections including five HDMI and two component video, you should be good to go. That means you can connect a Blu-ray player and gaming console, and still have three HDMI inputs left for other devices. It offers support for 3D content over HDMI (up to 1080p) for wraparound, immersive video. You can even get better imaging from analog devices that are connected to the STR-DH830 because it can convert it to a digital signal and output them via HDMI. Since they'll be connected with a single cable for audio and video, that's less clutter around your entertainment space, too.

Another way you can maximize your entertainment value is HD Digital Cinema Sound, which optimizes the receiver to mimic the sound of movie theaters. It has a Front Height mode to enable vocal height and 3D effects to put you right into the action of your movies or music. Of course, Sony has made navigation easy with an on-screen graphical user interface; you can change inputs, adjust settings and confirm volume levels on-screen.

This receiver supports decoding for all the latest audio formats found on Blu-ray discs like Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio and Pro Logic IIz. It also comes with a sophisticated auto speaker setup, which employs a microphone to calibrate the sound for your living room. It's just another way to ensure your sound is the best it can be to round out your cinema-like experience. This receiver also supports Audio Return Channel, standby pass-through of audio and video, and has assignable digital audio and video inputs.

But that's not all -- if you have other Sony BRAVIA-enabled devices, you can operate them all along with your STR-DH830 receiver. That's one less remote that could just end up getting stuck between the couch cushions never to be found again. Clearly, Sony made the STR-DH830 for value-driven home theater enthusiasts everywhere.

Two component inputs (1080/60i capable) provide added HD-capable connectivity and versatility

Assignable Digital Audio and Video Inputs
Get the most out of each audio and video input with the ability to reassign inputs to support connected devices
24p True Cinema (Pass-Through)
