The Sony STR-DH520 7.1 Channel 3D AV Receiver is a highly capable receiver with support for 3D content pass through, as well as several other sophisticated features.
It features a total of six high definition inputs, including four HDMI and two component video to hook up all of your gear. It can support configurations up to 7.1 channels and supports an array of Dolby and DTS audio formats found on Blu-ray and DVD discs so you can get clear, high resolution audio with a rich, detailed sound field. This ensures you'll hear soundtracks closer to the way they were mastered in the studio.
If you've already got 3D Blu-ray discs or games, you can experience them to the fullest with this receiver, as it supports 3D pass through over HDMI for cinema quality wraparound visuals that will put you right into the action of your favorite entertainment, along with 3D content, a 3D capable HDTV or home theater projector, and a 3D ready cable.
The STR-DH520 also supports 24p True Cinema, so if you also have a TV that supports this feature you can see video at 24 frames per second. Since most films were shot and mastered using this frame rate (with video being shot at 30 fps), this means you'll get a more cinema-like experience when you watch your favorite movies.
With support for Deep Color and x.v. Color, this receiver can deliver over one billion colors when used with a TV and cable that are also compatible with this feature. While this is more colors than the human eye can discern, it allows for smoother, more lifelike video with a richer color spectrum.
Fully assignable inputs allow for use of all connections, and you can control everything with one remote thanks to the BRAVIA sync function, as long as you have other devices that also have BRAVIA sync.
Even when the unit isn't powered on, you can access your other devices without even turning on the receiver. The STR-DH520 combines several high end features in one sophisticated package. It offers exceptional audio support with multiple inputs and outputs for all your home theater components, and makes a smart addition to any setup.
