You can enjoy every dimension in Dolby Atmos. Upgrade your home theater with a 5.1.2 speaker setup to enjoy fully immersive 3D sound from Dolby Atmos content. Dolby Surround up-mixer engages all speakers and creates 3D sound sensations from older content. Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization technology creates a feeling of upper sound even without a 5.1.2 system. You can also enjoy Dolby Atmos music tracks available from Apple Music, Amazon HD, TIDAL or a compatible streaming device.
DTS:X immersive audio content places sound where it would naturally occur in space, creating realistic, multi-dimensional sound. DTS Neural:X up-mixer offers better immersion and higher realism for older content. DTS Virtual:X provides immersive sound without treble channels and creates virtual treble effects in a 7.1, 5.1 or 2.1 speaker setup.
HDMI connectivity with ARC/eARC
It supports the latest technology on all HDMI inputs and outputs. ARC (Audio Return Channel) or eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) makes it easy to play TV audio through an AV receiver using just a single HDMI connection. eARC allows the transmission of HD and 3D audio, such as Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD Master Audio and Dolby Atmos, while ARC is limited to common 5.1-channel audio formats or PCM.

Bluetooth audio transmitter
Pair your favorite Bluetooth headphones with the AV receiver and listen to your favorite music, movies or TV programs even at night. You can also play audio from both speakers and Bluetooth headphones at the same time. If you have a hearing impaired family member or friend, we recommend this setting. You can connect one headset at a time.
More resources, more rooms
This AV receiver supports dual-source dual-zone audio. By connecting a pair of speakers in the second room to the AV receiver, it is possible to enjoy 5.1-channel surround sound in the main room and a separate source or music stream in the second room, for example in the study or on the terrace. The same sound can also be played in both rooms, so everyone in your household can enjoy and cheer on your favorite team on Sunday night or listen to the same song in both rooms.
