Following on from the award-winning STRDH800, the Sony STRDH810 adds a new range of tempting features including the latest HDMI sockets for full 3D compatibility.

As before, the STRDH810 offers a comprehensive range of Dolby and DTS processors to cover all sources from analogue to HD. New to the STRDH810 is Dolby Pro-Logic IIz which makes the most of the Sony's 7.1 channels with a spacious, enveloping sound when watching sources such as TV. In addition to the Dolby and DTS processors, Sony has fitted the STR-DH810 with no fewer than 24 different sound fields. These let you tailor the sound to your exact requirements.

When it comes to power, the Sony puts in a strong showing. The 100 watt amplifier is also able to be used in bi-amp configuration for the choice of improved sound quality when listening in stereo or 5.1. For better sound with iPod and MP3 players, the Sony STRDH810 also features Portable Audio Enhancer.

When it comes to picture quality, the Sony STRDH810 benefits greatly from a video up-converter. This means that any input signal is up-converted to 1080p resolution and outputted via HDMI. Being fully compatible with x.v. Colour, Deep Colour and 24p True Cinema you can be assured that the STRDH810 gets the full potential from any HD source.

Perhaps the most exciting advance over the old 800 is the fitment of the latest spec HDMI sockets. These not only allow for 3D TV pass through but also Audio Return. Audio Return means that just a single HDMI socket from receiver to TV carries both the picture to the TV and the sound back from it - really useful in cutting down the cable clutter! A feature unique to Sony is their Digital Media Port. When used with a selection of optional components, this allows for the integration of a wide range of media products, including Apple's iPod.

Although technically advanced, setting up requires only a minimum of time. BRAVIA Sync links to other Sony BRAVIA products via the HDMI to give exceptional ease of use. Digital Cinema Auto Calibration (DCAC) optimises the settings to your room's requirements - at the touch of a button.

Designed to match the latest Sony Blu-ray players but equally at home with a wide range of other components the STRDH810 has the clear, functional design that you'd expect from Sony. When you take it all together it looks like Sony are on to another winner with the STRDH810.

Sony STR-DH810

Best receiver up to £300, Awards 2010. The ’DH810 is a fantastic, affordable amp, and the perfect foil for an entry-level home cinema system

everytime?

£30 cheaper than the Onky 508 might edge it for some as they are pretty similar amps. Would certainly suit most people looking for a decent starter system. Remember, buy a decent subwoofer!

Sorry to sound thick... how can the sound be 3D? Are they just pointing out that this is compatible with a HDMI version 1.4?

Depends on your requirements - the 2400 has more inputs and superior sound quality (it was originally a mid-range amp whereas the 810 is a budget amp). However if you're planning on 3D TV in the future, it's lack of 3D passthrough will mean you'll need a BD player with dual HDMI or an HDMI splitter.

Thanks for the answer. So would that mean using my ps3 thru the 2400 for 3d is a total no no or would I lose the 3d aspects of the sound (cause I could live with that)

definitely no for sound quality... if you want 3d though then this is better but then u'd need a 3d tv, 3d bluray player and theres a very limited number of 3d movies out and then only a few out of those are good movies lol. I wont be using 3d anytime soon tho. This 1 is low end budget AV whereas the 2400es is a midrange which compares with recievers worth £400 to 600.
