DTS:X
DTS:X decoding delivers multi-dimensional surround sound that adapts to your speaker configuration in real time. Sound is positioned precisely around and above you thanks to object-based audio decoding.

Advanced DCAC
If you're working with different combinations of speakers, Digital Cinema Auto Calibration (DCAC) will have them all deliver the same sound quality. Automatic Phase Matching aligns the phase characteristics of your speakers to the front left and right speaker channels, so they all work together to deliver to deliver a more effective surround sound experience.

Can I have a Dolby Atmos 7.1.2 Setup with this Receiver?
Asked by: Kathleen
this receiver has 7 different output for speakers and 2 subwoofer channels. Which will allow you use 7.2 (the 2 being 2 subwoofer channels vs a typical 7.1) or 5.1.2 (I believe you could do a 5.2.2 if you wanted 2 subs)

Why cannot they make a receiver with 5 binding posts for banana plugs?
Asked by: Robert
There are other receiver other then the Sony STR-DH790 7.2-Channel A/V Receiver BH #SOSTRDH790 which would all have banana plugs. For example the Denon AVR-S760H 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver BH #DEAVRX760HB3 would have this option.
