Sony STR-DA2800ES overview

  • 1Description

The Sony STR-DA2800ES Home Theater A/V 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 10 high definition inputs, including eight HDMI and a component video to hook up all of your gear. It can support configurations up to 7.2 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.

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.
