AVR-891
AV Surround Receiver
A/V Home Theater Receiver with 3D Video Connectivity
Equipped with a host of high tech features, the AVR-891 is one of the first A/V receivers to include the latest HDMI 1.4a functionality,
which provides 3D pass-through (Broadcast and Blu-ray) capability, for compatibility with advanced 3D HDTVs and 3D Blu-ray discs,
and also includes Audio Return Channel. It also features the latest high resolution audio decoders, including Dolby TrueHD and DTSHD Master Audio, and includes Dolby Pro Logic IIz decoding, which provides front channel height effects for a dramatically expanded
front soundstage. The 7 channel amplifier section features discrete component technology, each rated at a powerful 135 watts. The
video processor provides upconversion to high definition HDMI, and includes precision picture adjustments, such as brightness,
contrast, color and tint, to name a few. Setup is a breeze thanks to Audyssey MultEQ automatic room correction.
