Sony STR-DH790 7.2 Dolby Atmos and DTS:X AV Receiver at Richer Sounds (FREE Home Delivery)

Posted 1st AprPosted 1st Apr
I've been looking for a good AV receiver and I found the Sony STR-DH790 a really top quality receiver, but it's high in demand and very difficult to get hold of as most places are … Read more

Hey guys, I read there is an update for this receiver to support eARC, can someone confirm this for me please?


No problem :)


Back in stock!! Thanks again OP, ordered (y)


Are receivers in general hard to find at the moment? Because of COVID? Are there any other budget offerings I should be looking at? Just need a modern one capable of 4k and powering two floor standing speakers.


I just found out this is now OOS. Will keep tabs on it. Purchased some speakers and a sub - nothing major but I am only used to a sub and two speakers. Went with B&W M1 v2's and the B&W ASW608 sub. Thanks for the previous advice on soundbars and it was that advice that led me to going with speakers and AV receiver set up instead.

Thanks. Its in IKEA BESTA with glass top


Love your tv unit….where did you get it from if you don’t mind me asking?


Indeed fine for sound. Most important things are a solid base, correct height and angle for ears. Correct distance from walls and listening position.


I assume it's fine for sound (assuming isolated with foam)? I'll admit I'm no audiophile/expert and my speakers aren't on your level but this looks like a good option for speaker mounting that actually looks good.


I just set up a new basic Denon. Place microphone in the right place. Run the setup. Done. Agree with other sentiments - would rather have a simple unit with the basics got right. I never even change the input though may occasionally use the built in Bluetooth seeing as it’s got it. Nothing beats the UI experience of controlling what you see on a device from the device itself. Was going to buy this Yamaha then figured hang on, the 8k doesn’t work and investing in advance for an 8k telly I don’t even have makes no sense. RS 250 quid job done, works a treat in my 5.1 setup. I don’t even use the remote as the telly does it though arc (in annoyingly small increments though).

Yeah but so much chew to set up lol Already spend too much time changing settings for different inputs


Ignore me. I got the model number wrong and this was nearly 7 years ago. I've edited my post. I would still stand with my comments about Sony amplifiers. I can't imagine they've improved that much on those that have serious audio experience. I guess you could order and try it.


Was looking to upgrade to the 1080 from my 1040 for Atmos Even though mine has 2 front height outputs But its lack of HDR 10+ passthrough thats holding me back Is the 1080 not very good?


Richer Sounds replaced my faulty Onkyo with a Sony STRDN840 and I stupidly agreed to it. They were being awkward with their lifetime warranty I purchased. I can't remember the ins and outs, I regretted it. Onkyo sounded so much better. My amp is on its way out now, the front screen won't even stay on, the master volume knob easily came off years ago and broke. Will never have a Sony amp again. My comment completely irrelevant to this deal but your comment made me want to have a rant :D


No HDMI output/network until it heats up. It could be reflowed I think, but that's a lot of effort for a maybe. The Sony looks sensible

OK, quality or noise was taking it to the extreme but it's simply a case of the most appropriate tool for the job, as you seem to agree. One of the most crucial elements of an amplifier is its power supply. Ideally it should be capable of delivering sudden large current swings to provide dynamics. If that same PSU is then asked to perform the same job for 7+ channels instead of 2, only one of two things are possible. The PSU is hugely upgraded adding considerable size, weight & expense or the power available to each channel is divided up, resulting in lower power to each channel. The usual approach is the latter together with the addition of a cooling fan, which may or may not be audible. That's before we get into HDMI switching & decoding for a myriad of sounds codecs. So yes, "oomph" has a lot to do with it. Plenty of resources in the land of Google if you want to research. As I said previously, if someone is happy listening to a budget AVR for music then that's really all that matters. But if you're serious about music reproduction then you owe it to yourself to make the comparison via a demo. If you hear no difference, happy days.


Quality or noise? That is a completely biased thing to say to be honest. I won't argue over a stereo amp being more suited for music, but do you have any evidence showing these difference aren't just characteristics of a specific device? Like comparing 2 transparent DAC's and saying one is better because it's colours it more to your preference. Or is it simply because of more oomph? I'm not saying a £1000 amp vs a £250 AV.


Depends what you want, music quality or just noise.A two channel amp will almost always outperform an AVR, 7 certainly at the same price point. The AVR has to spread its cost around 7+ channels, add a multitude of video & audio processing & pay the licences for those. Anyone serious about stereo & multi-channel will have an AVR with pre-outs & use a stereo amp hooked to these to drive the front pair. Given that the member I was responding to was considering this (£1,299), the Denon X4700 (£1,399) & the SA30 (£1,999), I'd suggest cash isn't that much of an issue to him. But having said all that, all that really matters is the user's satisfaction. If they're happy with what an AVR delivers for music then good luck to them.


Course they do. Unless you have plenty of money to burn.


One of those should sound better, obviously subjective though, but what you can do is run the front pair through something like that for stereo use and when you want to watch films use the pre-outs from the AVR390 to feed the SA30, best of both worlds.

Yamaha RX-V4A 5.2 Ch Bluetooth AV Receiver £404 at ebay / hughesdirect£404£44910% off Free P&P FreeeBay Deals
Cheapest price available and a nice saving off a new amp.

AV receiver prices have gone north since COVID. This is very overpriced at £404. For example this time last year you could have got the much better specified 7.2 Yamaha RXV-585 for £285. I found the Denon AVR-X1600H from Peter Tyson eBay around £290 in October but that kind of price is very rare now.


Bad news is that it may not be fixable with a software update. Good news is that ps5 seems to be OK, xbox series x is not, and that only 4k/120 and 8k/60 are restricted.


Can we expect fully implemented HDMI 2.1 in 2021 models do you know? Its been in most mid to top range TVs for at least couple of years now so does seem strange its taking so long to filter through to AV receivers


Nobody is yet, at least not properly. There's in issue with the only microcontroller on the market which means it can't handle full bandwidth vrr apparently...


I guess so, I went for a Yamaha AV amp a few years back but the difference wasn’t as much as it seems to be now between Yamaha and other models. Considering how basic and restrictive this Yamaha one is, I’d take the Sony one over this every day.

Could you use a toslink/3.5mm adapter with this you reckon?


I have aux output on my stereo but no jack etc as searched everywhere for it, once stereo was removed i had rca’s at the rear, plugged it in an works with no issues at all. It also connects automatically once aux is selected. Mick


I have seen things (on AliExpress) you people wouldn’t believe :)


UGREEN stuff is made to a high standard. They always seem to get high scores on reviews. This isn't one of the no-name, generic Chinese manufacturers.


Search on Amazon for Bluetooth receivers with decent review's can usually be had for less than £10. Will come next day but will likely be made in china.
