Features

7.2-channel AVENTAGE AV receiver equipped with the latest features for total immersion. There is a support for Dolby Atmos and DTS: X. Anti-Resonance Technology (A.R.T.) Wedge suppresses vibration reduction. It also features MusicCast system for playing sound in different rooms. It provides powerful 7-channel surround sound 95 W per channel at 8 Ohms, 160 W per channel at 4 Ohms.

Design and build

Aluminum front panel provides visual and acoustic benefits. It employs a discrete amp configuration and a low jitter PLL circuit, which contribute to its excellent audio performance. Furthermore it supports the wider color gamut of BT.2020 pass-through.

Connectivity

You’ll find a pass-through through HDMI (6 inputs / 1 output) and HDR Video. HDMI input on the front panel, digital USB connection on the front panel for connecting USB devices. RX-A770, supports 4K upscaling and can send a signal to the second zone in the house. This receiver has one more HDMI input than the youngest model, and has a built-in phono stage.

Setup

There is Sound Optimization System YPAO R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) with measurements at several points and YPAO Volume function for natural sound even at low volume. I really liked detachable power cord for easy installation.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • It feels lightweight, solid - and well made but isn't bulky or oddly heavy either
  • I haven’t really messed with much on tweaking the setup. Setup was insanely easy, so far I haven’t used it for anything but movies and tv, but it has a in depth eq where I can alter each component individually as I see fit

Cons

  • After some work with it, I'm fairly confident it isn't the speaker connections as the online blogs and support docs point you to
