For many years, movie surround soundtracks have been channel-based. Revolutionary Dolby 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 3-dimensional space. Now, you can enjoy this same award-winning technology at home with the AVR-X1200W, which features the ability to connect a 5.1 surround sound speaker system and 2 additional overhead speakers or 2 additional Dolby Atmos-certified up-firing speakers for the ultimate home theater experience. Along with Dolby Atmos decoding and Dolby Surround Upmixing, the AVR-X1200W 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, and provides for overhead speakers to deliver a stunning surround sound experience.
Advanced Quad-Core 32-bit DSP Processor
Featuring an advanced quad-core 32-bit DSP processor, the AVR-X1200W easily handles multi-thread processing tasks, including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X decoding, Audyssey room acoustic correction, bass management and DSP surround simulation. The processor features tremendous processing power, with 4 300-MHz DSP cores that deliver over 1 billion computations per second.
Built-in Bluetooth & Wi-Fi
Featuring Bluetooth & Wi-Fi wireless streaming connectivity, the AVR-X1200W is equipped with an advanced dual antenna RF transceiver system for robust and error-free streaming, even in congested urban environments. Connect to the internet through your home Wi-Fi network (or with a hard-wired connection via the RJ-45 Ethernet LAN port) and enjoy your favorite tracks from streaming music services such as Pandora, Spotify Connect and SiriusXM. You can also choose from thousands of internet radio stations around the world, and enjoy music from virtually every genre.
Full Specification 4K Ultra HD Compatibility
