Incorporating a host of modern technologies, this model features 7.2 audio channels at 110 watts each for powerful home theatre entertainment. Full Network capability enables seamless integration into the user's home internet network, with native Windows 7 support and DLNA technology providing wireless streaming throughout the house. Pandora, Sirius XM, Napster and Rhapsody radio services are fully supported as well, with pre-configured settings built into the receiver's display for configuring personalized station and EQ settings. The RX-V871 also features 3D HDMI outputting, with two separate ports provided for pass-through of compatible Blu-Ray, video game and broadcast content.
