Product Information

The Sony STR-DH800 follows on from the award-winning STR-DG820 with even greater flexibility.

As before, this Sony 7.1 HD AV receiver has been optimised to make the most of 1080p Blu-ray HD signals. With no fewer than four HDMI inputs and a monitor output, the STRDH800 is the ideal HDMI video switching unit and lets you plug four HDMI equipped devices through a TV with just one input. Added to this, the Sony offers full HD audio decoding. With full x.v colour 1080p compatibility, Dolby True HD and DTS HD, the STR-DH800 is perfectly placed to offer the HD audio to match HD vision.

Although optimised for 1080p HD, Sony hasn't forgotten about other sources. With a wide range of inputs and outputs for component, phono, digital optical and coaxial, this Sony home cinema receiver is able to operate at the heart of the most comprehensive of home cinema systems. 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. New to the STR-DH800 is Sony's S-AIR technology. Used in conjunction with optional transmitter and speakers you can enjoy music in another room, without the need for additional cabling. Another great feature is the ability to switch from 7.1 to 5.1 with bi-amped front speakers. If you're seeking the ultimate in sound quality, then bi-amping your front speakers gives greatly enhanced control and definition of sound.

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 optimises the settings to your room's requirements - at the touch of a button.

If you're looking for a budget AV receiver with full HD compatibility and the quality to match, the Sony STR-DH800 is up with the best in its class.

BUT.... if there's a Richer Sounds near you then obviously it's nice to go in and pick one up. I always like to have the 'comfort' of knowing I can walk back into the shop with a product should I need to (faults etc). So if I was buying this (and I wish I was!!!!), then I'd go with the Richer Sounds option.

Seems to be the going price now so not as hot. Good amp but no upconverting.

Or £249.99 at ]amazon

bought this last week, as a part of package apart from receiver Sony BDP760 and Q acoustics 2000 series 5.1 speakers and sony TDM IP-50 iphone dock. agree does not upconvert video(but the 760 does the upscaling job wonderfully) very satisfied with the overall package it self.
definitely better receivers available but at this price this is the best.
normal price, neutral rating

Not everyone needs upconversion as some of us have good tv.

Pardon my ignorance but what do these HD amp's actually do?
