HDAM Technology and Current Feedback
Multiple input options, including seven HDMI inputs with 4K Ultra HD and 3D pass-through. View larger.
Featuring Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module (HDAM) technology, the SR7008 Network Home Theater Receiver delivers unparalleled sound clarity. HDAM technology provides an ultra-fast slew rate for true wideband response and maximum dynamic range to deliver optimum sound quality with today's high-resolution audio formats.
In addition to HDAM technology, the SR7008 also features current feedback instead of the typical voltage feedback configuration. Current feedback technology provides a wide closed-loop bandwidth and very high slew rate, delivering superior fidelity with wideband audio sources.
Expanded Suite of Audyssey Technologies
Audyssey MultEQ XT32 provides automatic room acoustic measurement and correction. Via the supplied microphone, the system analyzes sound from all the speakers (including the subwoofer) and generates precision digital filters for each channel to provide the smoothest, most natural tonal balance. With MultEQ XT32, the sound from the speakers and the acoustics of the room are truly harmonized, something not possible with conventional frequency-only compensation.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides real-time acoustic compensation for a smooth, natural tonal balance at any listening level, and Audyssey Dynamic Volume tames loud jumps in sound level, such as commercials, for enjoyable listening even at reduced volume levels.
Audyssey LFC (Low Frequency Containment) uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to generate a fuller tonal range, but with substantially reduced subwoofer output. This lets you enjoy late-night listening without bothersome deep bass leaking into adjacent rooms. Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual correction for dual-subwoofer setups. And, the SR7008 is Audyssey Installer Pro ready.

The SR7008 can also be configured for front main (L/R) bi-amplified speaker operation if you own bi-amp-capable speakers.
Seven HDMI Inputs are 3D and 4K Ultra HD Compatible

There are dual main HDMI outputs for the main room, which lets you connect a flat screen TV and a video front projector. A third HDMI output lets you send a different program to another room. With HDMI standby pass-through, the SR7008 lets you enjoy programs on your TV (such as newscasts) via your TV's speakers instead of the surround sound system's speakers.
