3D surround playback
HDMI control function
This unit supports virtual 3D surround sound technology called “DTS
Virtual:X”. Surround sound can be heard not only from horizontal
directions, but also from varying heights when this unit’s 3D surround
mode is enabled, creating a virtual acoustic environment. This
provides a greater sense of cohesion between audio and video, for a
sense of being surrounded by sounds coming from ahead, behind,
the left and right, and even above for an immersive visual and
auditory experience.
Link functions of a TV and the unit are available using the TV’s
remote control. When a TV that supports Audio Return Channel
(ARC) is used, this ARC-compatible unit can be connected to the TV
via a single HDMI cable.
Wireless subwoofer
The supplied wireless subwoofer enables more dynamic audio
playback.

(HDR) video
Enjoy 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) content from HDR-compatible
sources such as a TV, media streaming device, gaming console, or
