A USB port on the front provides direct device connectivity and audio playback.

11-Channel Discrete Monolithic Amplifier
Featuring discrete power output devices on all channels, the AVR-X6700H is rated up to 140 watts per channel at 8 ohms for a dynamic, precise sound experience.
3D Audio Support
Enjoy immersive 3D audio from formats like Dolby Atmos, Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization, DTS:X, and DTS Virtual:X for a 3D soundstage. Dolby Atmos uses dedicated up-firing or overhead speakers to provide height sound effects in up to 7.1.4- or 9.1.2-channel configurations, while DTS:X and DTS Neural:X use your existing speaker setup to create virtual height channels from more traditional 7.1-, 5.1-, or 2.1-channel arrangements.
DTS:X Pro
DTS:X Pro enables up to 13.2 channels of audio processing with DTS:X Pro; an additional stereo amplifier will be required to drive the two additional audio channels.
IMAX Enhanced
IMAX Enhanced certification designates that the AVR-X6700H meets certain audio and video performance criteria set by a committee of IMAX and DTS engineers and A/V technical specialists. These criteria include image, sound, scale, and content quality. Onboard IMAX calibrated modes are set and approved by Hollywood colorists to help provide enhanced picture and sound for HDR UHD content.
Auro-3D
This technology is designed to provide 3D sound for music, games, broadcast TV, and movies with the Auromatic up-mixing engine.
8K HDMI with eARC
The main HDMI output supports eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel) to enable uncompressed and object-based audio transmission directly from your TV to the receiver. A dedicated 8K input supports 8K UHD/60 Hz and 4K UHD/120 Hz video pass-through and upscaling. All HDMI inputs support 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, various dynamic HDR formats, and BT.2020 pass-through for augmented color, clarity, and contrast. 8K upscaling (from as low as 480i) and HDCP 2.3 compatibility are available on all HDMI inputs. HDCP 2.3 processing lets you enjoy copy-protected content uninhibited. QMS (Quick Media Switching) is also supported.

I see there are 11 binding posts for 11 speakers, but the product description states "7.1.4- or 9.1.2-Channel 3D Audio Support" suggesting two of those binding posts might need an amplifier to power the 10th and 11th speaker. Why does the description offer only 9 speakers?
Asked by: Mitchell
This AVR is actually capable of handling 13.2 channels, 2 needs additional power if you want to achieve this configuration. 7.1.4, 9.1.2 or any othe configuration is just the way how you setup your speakers. First number (7 or 9) is normally referred to the number of speakers at your hear height Second (1 or 2) is the number of Subwoofers Third (2 or 4) is normally the ATMOS/DTS-X or Ceiling speakers Hope that helps.
