Dolby Atmos is a new audio format that uses object-oriented mixing techniques to layer individual sound elements over a channel-based audio bed, putting sound into motion all around you, even overhead. Content creators mix soundtracks in a 3D space, seamlessly moving the sound above and around the audience. This receiver has Dolby Atmos built-in. Just install a pair of in-ceiling speakers or purchase a pair of SKH-410 Dolby Atmos-enabled speaker modules.

Hi-Fi Power and Fidelity

support

WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) is all about current. Receivers need a lot of current not only to handle sudden explosive actions scenes but also to reproduce the detail of quiet passages. We use a massive high-power transformer to drive discrete amps that help eliminate distortion and preserve the energy of music and movies. Delivering 115 watts per channel, the HT-S9700THX's A/V receiver packs a colossal punch for movies but still retains the pure musicality you need for two-channel playback. Also, Phase-Matching Bass Enhancement optimizes low frequencies while preserving mid-range clarity. It counters phase shifting by synchronizing the timing of different frequencies. The result is deep, well-defined bass that won't blur vocals or strings.

Factory-Matched and Balanced THX Speaker System

The included speaker system is serious about immersive surround sound. Solid MDF cabinets feature A-OMF diaphragms (layered polyethylene naphthalate and flexible cotton weave material to improve stiffness and heat resistance) for vivid and natural mid-range performance.Where other brands skimp on the surrounds, we include proper two-way speakers with 5 1/8" (13 cm) A-OMF drivers to ensure you get maximum impact from all directions. Rounding out the package is a high-capacity acoustic-suspension subwoofer fitted with a 12" (30 cm) front-firing cone for 125 Watts of wall-shaking bass. Beautifully finished and including detachable cloth grilles for protection, this THX-certified speaker system is the true heavyweight of the HTiB world.

4K Video Upscaling with Qdeo Technology

support

Video from older gaming consoles and DVD players looks clean and sharp, giving your old favorites a new lease on life. Qdeo™ technology from Marvell automatically upscales low-res video to liquid-smooth 1080p (for HDTV) and 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) with a compatible UHD display.

Exclusive AccuEQ Room Calibration

AccuEQ easily calibrates your system to suit your home theater space. Just connect your speakers, plug-in the included mic and the system automatically measures aspects such as speaker distance, type, crossover, and output, while taking into account any sonic reflections from your walls and floor. The system by-passes your front left and right speakers to preserve the purity of those channels and optimizes the frequency response of the remaining speakers for amazingly balanced surround sound regardless of room shape or furnishings.
