The video processor also has the ability to transcode and upconvert standard definition and high-definition analog and digital video content to 4K Ultra HD.
Get Ready to Experience Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Dolby’s new Atmos surround sound technology dispenses with channel-based coding in favor of more advanced object-based coding, giving the sound designer the ability to precisely place sounds anywhere in the three-dimensional space. Now, you can enjoy this same award-winning technology at home with AV7705, which features the ability to connect a 5.1-surround sound speaker system and two additional overhead speakers or two additional Dolby Atmos elevation speakers for the ultimate home-theater experience. Thanks to the 9-ch. processing capability, you can just add an external two-channel amplifier and even enjoy a thrilling 5.1.4- or 7.1.2-channel Atmos experience.
Auro-3D for Complete Immersion
Auro-3D provides an immersive surround sound experience thanks to dedicated height and overhead channels, in addition to the regular channels. The height information, captured in recording or created during the mixing process, is mixed into a standard 5.1 PCM stream that comes with a regular Blu-ray. Moreover, the Auro-3D Engine combines different technologies to guarantee an optimum 3D sound experience generated both natively and from existing audio content. It recognizes mono, stereo, 5.1 surround or an Auro-encoded signal and transforms them into 3D audio. AV7705 is capable of decoding the original Auro 3D mix and playing back an Auro-3D 10.1-channel configuration (with external two-channel amplifier).
HDAM Discrete Buffer Amplifier Modules for Amazing Sound Quality
AV7705 features the latest HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) components, which consist of matched precision discrete selected circuit elements on a compact sub-board, instead of conventional op-amp integrated circuits. These advanced HDAM modules provide a full 10dB of signal-to-noise improvement over earlier HDAM versions, along with ultra wide-band response (100 kHz, -3dB) for a wide-open soundstage with refined detail reproduction.
Built-in Bluetooth, Built-in Wi-Fi and AirPlay, and DLNA
