Consider it command central for your high-definition, high-impact home entertainment system — and all its devices. When you're ready to play, so is this Elite receiver. That's why we equipped this receiver with HDMI digital inputs and monitor output. Now, a one-wire connection can send high-definition video and multi-channel audio from HDMI equipped cable boxes, satellite receivers, DVD players, and even next generation game consoles to your new HDTV digital television.* The VSX-74TXVi is also equipped with i.Link™ (advanced digital audio interface) for the absolute best in multi-channel audio transfer. Everything stays digital and you'll have far fewer wires to complicate things. Want some more connectivity? How about XM® Radio Connect and Play™ (XM Satellite Radio subscription required) and Ready for iPod connections. Both of these highly popular digital audio formats are now in the home and easily controlled from the VSX-74TXVi's remote control with complete On-Screen Display**. Distributing a whopping 140 watts to all 7 channels, this Elite receiver delivers an immersive sonic experience for HDTV, movies, music and games. Along with THX® Select2 certification, twelve advanced concert and cinema surround modes include Dolby® Digital and DTS®. Hearing is believing.

Processing prowess.

This professional-caliber sonic performance is powered by the Advanced Digital Core Engine, with twice the processing capacity, for twice the precision. Sharc®-EX and Motorola® 48-Bit Processing DSP handle all the digital content you can throw at it — faster and better. For superior sound purity and accuracy, the Burr-Brown™ chipset provides impressive 24-bit D/A conversion. Cutting-edge processing technologies come with meticulously engineered circuitry, designed to shorten and purify the signal path for improved efficiency and performance.

Professional-grade calibration for everyone.

It's all about accuracy: hearing precisely what the sound engineer intended, in the room of your choice. Achieve this accuracy, easier than ever, with the first advanced Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration Circuit (MCACC). Using a microphone, MCACC measures your room's acoustic environment, then fine tunes the sonic performance of your home entertainment system. For even more customization, you can view a 3-D graphic representation of a room’s unique acoustic topography on your PC. Professional-level custom calibration is made even easier with dedicated online support. Custom installers will also appreciate its Blu-ray Disc® ready RS-232C.
