The Sony STR-DH700 is a 7.1 105 watt/channel home theater/receiver announced by Sony in March 2009, with a $300 price tag. This receiver features 6 HD inputs (3 Active HDMI™ and 3 component). It is compatible with 24p True Cinema video signals and decodes uncompressed audio so users can connect their HD components such as a Blu-ray Disc™ player and PLAYSTATION®3. Equipped with S-AIR™ technology, users can listen to their favorite songs wirelessly throughout their home via the optional S-AIR transmitter and speaker. Users can quickly set up their speakers while optimizing performance with the push of one button in just 30 seconds thanks to Digital Cinema Auto Calibration. This model is also SIRIUS Satellite Radio ready. This piece seems like a good deal if compared with the two-channel 100 watt Onkyo TX-8555 that has the same price.
