Faroudja® DCDi CINEMA Chipset for Up Scaling to 1080p
IC processor developed by Faroudja, and first used by Sony, which will up scale and up convert all video signals (less than 1080p) to 1080p via HDMI.4 This chipset corrects image jaggedness; reduces block noise and reproduces true to original colors. The end result is a beautiful and smooth high definition image.

Cross Media Bar Inspired Graphic User Interface
An on-screen menu system that simplifies the most complex operations of an A/V receiver for home theater applications. This advanced menu system incorporates icons, an easy to follow "tree" system and a blending technique so users know exactly where they are amongst the various settings while still watching their main video source (up to 1080i). The menu includes access to DIGITAL MEDIA PORT accessories (sold separately), the ability to assign HDMI inputs and independent A/V sync control for each input. It's simple. Just pick up the remote and a whole new experience will be revealed.

Down Conversion
Component and S-video sources can be down converted to lower resolution outputs, thus customizing video connectivity to home theater requirements from a single source. Also, both receivers can take HD sources from component video and down convert the signal for use with composite or S-Video ouputs. This is ideal for distributing video through multiple rooms with fewer wires.

Digital Cinema Auto Calibration-2
An ideal listening experience is only a button away. Simply place the included microphone in your listening position, push a single button and speaker position, distance and delays are automatically calibrated. Sony's Digital Signal Processing uses feedback between the microphone and receiver to optimize sound settings.

A world of digital radio at your fingertips. Connect the optional antenna for either Sirius and/or XM subscription service and enjoy the variety and quality of digital radio with the superior sound quality of an A/V receiver. In addition to stereo, you can enjoy 5.1 surround broadcasting. XM radio is a satellite radio service that provides pay-for-service radio, analogous to cable television.
