The AVR550 has been designed and built to deliver astounding performance for all home cinema enthusiasts. It delivers an impressive, accurate and powerful sound with a wide range of material and is equally at home with music as it is with movies.
The AVR550 handles 3D content and 4K "Ultra HD" video with ease, with "Ultra HD" video scaling so that both standard and high definition sources can be scaled to any resolution when needed.
Dolby Atmos delivers incredible 3D sound, placing and moving audio all around the room, including overhead, for full audio immersion. Dolby Atmos delivers powerful entertainment experience whether you are listening to music, movies, television shows or playing your favourite video games. Using an additional 4-channel amplifier (or two 2-channel power amplifiers), a 7.1.4 system can be created.
For cinema or media room installations the AVR550 can be easily controlled via Ethernet, RS232, 12V triggers and standard IR while audio can be streamed from Network servers, Internet radio or USB drives.
