The Sony STR-DH520 is a budget friendly 7.1 channel A/V receiver that supports 100 watts per channel. It doesn’t offer a USB port, iPod/iPhone functionality, or composite ports, but it does support 3D content from movies and games. More importantly, it offers full 1080p high definition video processing at 24p, meaning Blu-ray content can be watched in its natural format. The STR-DHS520 also offers advanced audio processing through Dolby TrueHD and dts HD. Combined with HD Digital Cinema Sound, the receiver can output high quality audio at a cinema grade level. Another function, one typically found only on premium units, is BRAVIA Sync. This lets users control other Sony BRAVIA devices (HDTVs, Digital Cameras, etc) through the included remote, assuming they are connected by one of the six included HDMI ports.
