The goal is simple; create the multi-channel audio experience that the studio engineer intended for you to hear in your home. The VSX-74TXVi was designed to do just that and more. Building on a long history of innovations in amplifier designs the VSX-74TXVi's new Direct Energy Bipolar 7-Channel powerplant delivers 140 Watts to all 7 channels with absolute detail, power, and efficiency. To harnass all of that raw power, we've gone to a whole new level of digital signal processing with a new and improved Advanced MCACC calibration system, Burr Brown 192kHZ / 24-Bit digital to analog converters, new Phase Control bass management, and new Standing Wave compensation digital technologies. With so many new digital A/V devices available today, the VSX-74TXVi was built for connectivity. That's why we equipped this receiver with HDMI* digital inputs and monitor output. Now, a one-wire connection can send hi-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" 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.
