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

Get Ready to Experience Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
AV7702mkII 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 AV7702mkII, 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. AV7702mkII 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. AV7702MKII also features DTS-HD Master Audio and other DTS technologies. DTS:X and DTS Neural:X Upmixer will be enabled via future firmware update.

Future Proof: Auro-3D Upgrade Available
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. Once upgraded with the Auro-Codec decoder, AV7702mkII 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

AV7702mkII 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 AV7702mkII via built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The Bluetooth function features automatic power on and pairing, and up to 8 devices can be remembered. AV7702mkII also features dual antennas for even better Wi-Fi and Bluetooth transmission and reception coverage. It is also equipped with Apple AirPlay, and DLNA compatibility lets you access content from your PC or Mac via your home network. Enjoy a world of Internet radio, and listen to your favorite tracks from subscription music services including Spotify Connect, Pandora, and SiriusXM.

Effortless Setup, Outstanding Control, Even a Handy USB Port

A handy Quick Setup guide, along with the intuitive on-screen Setup Assistant, will have your AV7702mkII up and running with a minimum of fuss and bother. You can even control the setup via your PC's web browser, or use the available iOS and Android apps with your favorite smart device. For easy setup and use, AV7702mkII can be controlled by the supplied remote and also be controlled by your favorite smartphone and tablet devices.

Fully Loaded Audyssey Platinum Suite Gives You Precision Sound
Equipped with the full Audyssey Platinum suite of advanced DSP algorithms, AV7702mkII features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction. With the supplied measurement microphone, MultEQ XT32 analyzes each speaker's output (including the subwoofers) at up to 8 measurement locations and generates precision digital filters that optimize each channel for the correct frequency and time domain response. AV7702mkII is also Audyssey Pro Installer ready. Audyssey Dynamic Volume smoothes out annoying jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower levels and still enjoy clear dialog, music and sound effects. Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides precision tonal tailoring for full range clarity at any listening level. Audyssey Low Frequency Containment uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to deliver a full range tonal balance, including deep bass, but without disturbing close-by neighbors or family members in other rooms, and features a multi-step adjustment that lets you dial in the amount of containment to your preference. Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual DSP tailoring of each subwoofer in a dual subwoofer setup, for deeper bass with improved definition, compared to a single subwoofer configuration. Audyssey Dynamic Surround Expansion dramatically broadens the surround soundstage for the ultimate surround sound experience with the option of connecting front height and/or front wide speakers.
