A/V Receivers

Sony STR-DH500, STR-DH700 and STR-DH800 A/V Receivers


Three New Receivers Replace the STR-DG Line-up

The STR-DH500 is a 5.1 channel receiver with 3 HDMI inputs and 1 output (switcher). It features Digital Cinema Auto Calibration and Digital Media Port, which allows you to release your music from your portable music players and PC via an optional adapter.


The 5.1 channel STR-DH500 model offers 100 watts of power per channel (@ 8-Ohms, 1 kHz, 1% THD) and accepts 1080/60p and 24p video signals via HDMI (3 in / 1 out). It will be available later this month for about $200.

For those looking for more features, the STR-DH700 offers 7.1 channel with 3 HDMI inputs and 1 output (repeater). In addition to STR-DH500’s specification, the STR-DH700 supports x.v.Colour, Deep Colour and bi-amplification. With bi-amplification, separate power stages drive the low frequency and mid/high frequency outputs. It also supports S-AIR — the wireless rear speaker solution from Sony that brings true flexibility and convenience to home cinema configuration.
