  • newegg High Sound Quality The YAMAHA YHT-797BL boasts 5-channel powerful surround sound (115W per Channel) and one 10” 100W active subwoofer for true to life sound. With the Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio decoder, enjoy lossless, ultra-realistic HD surrounding sound like it was meant to be.
  • newegg 1080p HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel The YAMAHA YHT-797BL supports 4K pass-through for next generation super high resolution images and deep Color (30/36 bit), x.v.Color, 24 Hz Refresh Rate and Auto Lip-Sync compensation for vivid images. The HDMI interfaces (4 in/1 out) support both 3D video and an Audio Return Channel. 3D video brings exciting possibilities to home entertainment, with movie, game, and broadcast content on the increase and 3D-compatible TVs now on the market. Meanwhile, the Audio Return Channel allows audio content received directly by your HDTV’s tuner to be sent “upstream” via HDMI to your A/V receiver, without the need for a separate S/PDIF audio cable.
  • newegg One-touch start and more The YAMAHA YHT-797BL has SCENE buttons with direct power on (BD/DVD, TV, Net and Radio) for one-touch start operation. The front panel USB Digital Connection allows you to connect to iPod, iPhone and iPad eliminating the need to purchase a separate dock. And Airplay allows music streaming from Mac, PC, iPod, iPhone and iPod. With AV controller app, you can perform various functions from an iPod/iPhone/iPad or Android phones.
  • newegg Surround Realism CINEMA DSP 3D provides a wide, high and dense sound field. HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources, and Virtual Presence Speaker delivers 3-dimensional sound without actual use of presence speakers. Plus, the actually measured sound field data contains the information of the height of the sound images. CINEMA DSP 3D mode achieves the reproduction of the accurate height of the sound images so that it creates the accurate and intensive stereoscopic sound fields in a listening room. And when music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. The compressed music enhancer function restores what was lost, so your music always sounds the way it should.
  • newegg Eco-Friendly design The ECO mode operation contributes to up to 20%* less power consumption. Other Eco-friendly features include only 0.1w power consumption in Standby mode and auto power down function with variable time setting. (*Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off)

5 out of 5 eggsNice unit

Pros: Really nice unit, lots of features, everything plugged in and worked.

Cons: My review didn't post for some reason. Anyways I have been a Yamaha fan since the 70's and from dirt bikes to electronics they got it right. A couple of issues, the speaker wires they sent with the unit were a joke, I had to put on my reading glasses to make there was wire in there, cost me $40.00 out of pocket and an hour of time to stop the install go get parts ARRRGG, setup and tuning was a real pain in the rear, Blu-ray audio pass through was interesting but we got it, front left speaker has an issue getting replaced by Yamaha excellent CS on that, the remote is a little jenky but we ditched it right off with a universal. I have to admit very disappointed in the wire and overall complexity of setup. I personally own 2 Yamaha surround systems and have installed quite a few, this model was hands down the most complicated to do. Plan on spending a few hours tuning and tweaking make sure ALL your peripheral's are set the way that works before you call it good. DONT use the Y Pad microphone that made things worse.

Other Thoughts: Yamaha should be ashamed to even include speaker wire if this is what there pimping at this price level they should have included at least 16 or 18 gauge wire, what a joke. As I said have time set aside for tuning and tweaking.
