THX® Certified Select theater-reference sound

TX-NR797 THX

THX Certified Select guarantees the same reference volume level of a commercial theater in rooms where the viewing position is about 10-12 ft. from the screen. To gain certification for reference sound within strict THX® sound-quality parameters, receivers must pass 2,000 bench-tests in 75 categories covering 14,000 data points.

Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer

When playing any Dolby® format, engaging Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer* enables a more immersive listening experience, creating a virtual surround and height effect from traditional speaker layouts without employing additional surround or height speakers.

*Enabled with a future firmware update.

Dolby DTS

Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X®- setting sound free

Versatile Zone 2/Zone B line-out

TX-NR797 Zone 2 B lineout

Connect an audio system via analog RCA input to the AVR's Zone 2/Zone B line-out. In Zone 2 mode, you can play the same or different D/A sources (including SPDIF and HDMI) in either or both rooms at the same time. Zone B mode is an ideal match for a supported wireless transmitter. Listen to any source-including the TV-through wireless headphones. Perfect for midnight movies and TV.

Dynamic Audio Amplification

Refined over 70 years to deliver emotion in high fidelity, DAA features a custom High-Current Low-Noise Power Transformer, customized capacitors, and discrete amp output stages. Unique topology prevents phase-shift while high current improves speaker control for true dynamic speed. Driving 4-ohm loads through all channels, DAA has power to move.

New upgrades reduce noise and boost power

TX-NR797 HDMI board

The TX-NR797 adds new refinements that control noise, boost power, and improve S/N performance. A new HDMI® board has shorter signal-paths and large, carefully finished grounds for clean A/V signals. SoC is isolated to reduce interference noise. The power-supply line is strengthened in pursuit of power and the results are evident in improved speed, force, and localization across an expanded soundstage.

AccuEQ Advance with AccuReflex

AccuEQ Advance room acoustic calibration uses nine-point measurement to remove standing waves that occur when sound from the speakers resonates with sound reflecting off the walls, altering its natural expression. During the process, background noise is ignored to ensure accurate equalization. AccuReflex optimizes 3D sound reproduction through height speakers by resolving phase-shift. Enjoy a cohesive 3D soundfield in rooms of any shape or size.
