Audiophile-Conscious Hub Takes Utmost Care of Audio and Video Signals

AV7704 also takes supreme care of video signals via the eight HDMI 4k 60Hz pass-through/scaling inputs and sends them to the two HDMI output sockets or independently to the third HDMI output that is dedicated for multi-room. All of them support HDCP 2.2 copy protection for 4k UHD content.
HDMI 2.0a Connectivity and HDCP 2.2 Compatibility on All Eight HDMI Inputs
Prepared for the future, AV7704 features an advanced video section fully compatible with the latest HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all eight HDMI inputs. With 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 21:9 video, 3D, and BT.2020 pass-through support on every input, AV7704 is ready for the next generation of Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, and other 4K Ultra HD sources.

Get Ready to Experience Dolby Atmos and DTS:X: AV7704 Makes It Happen
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 AV7704, 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. AV7704 also features Dolby TrueHD lossless decoding and other Dolby Digital technologies. The latest immersive surround sound system, DTS:X, features object-based audio coding that lets the sound designer place sonic elements anywhere in the 3D acoustic soundspace. AV7704 also features DTS-HD Master Audio and other DTS technologies. DTS:X and DTS Neural:X Upmixer will be enabled via future firmware update.
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. AV7704 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
AV7704 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
Wirelessly stream your favorite tracks to AV7704 via built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The Bluetooth function features automatic power on and pairing, and up to 8 devices can be remembered.
