Sony STR-DH800
We've just received pictures of Sony's new STR-DH800 budget AV receiver, due on sale in the UK in July for £350

We brought you news of Sony's two new multichannel receivers earlier this week, and we've just received pictures of the forthcoming STR-DH800 budget model, due on sale in July for £350.

What's more, we're due to get our first review sample any day now.

The STR-DH800 replaces the five-star STR-DG820 and is a 7.1 design with high-definition audio decoding.

It's fitted with Sony's S-AIR wireless rear speaker system, and decodes all the new high-definition audio formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

More after the break

There's support for xv colour and Deep Colour, four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output. You can also use the STR-DH800 to biamplify your speakers, with separate power stages to drive the low frequency and mid/high frequency drivers.
