      Answer

      It does, but you have to take a few steps. If you hook up all 7 speakers, the speaker button on the front of the cabinet will only toggle between SPKRA and SPKROFF. I have two speakers in my back yard and need to have them off when no one is out there. Do this. Disconnect your B speakers (the speaker jack reads BiAmp/B Front High, etc. use the calibration microphone to calibrate in the main room and it will set up the system as 5.1 or 5.2. Then connect the B speakers. Now, when you push the speaker button in the front if the cabinet, it will toggle between A, B, AB, and speaker off. Then you need to select the surround sound Mode that best suits the space. I only play music when using the B speakers, so it sounds great.

        It's in the operating manual. You have to go into your AMP menu and set it to TV+AMP instead of AMP only.

          Can this receiver be used in a 5.1 home theater setup? In other words, can you "turn off" the surround back speakers in the setup or just not attach any speakers to the surround back speakers.   (5 Answers)

              Answer

              This one has more power and it is HDCP2.2 compliant, which will let you watch protected 4k content. The 750 is not for 4k. Some commenters are saying it is, even ones from Sony Talks, but Sony support as well as other sites say no.

                No it doesn't play blu ray discs. It's not a BD player, it's a receiver. No it doesn't come with speakers.

                    It depends on the station. If the station broadcasts in HD then you will hear it in HD. I personally don't hear a difference with them.
