    Even though you connect your TV and cable or satellite box via the STR-DA3700ES, you can turn off the receiver when you watch your cable or satellite and the audio will pass through the receiver to the TV speakers
  • 3D Pass-through
    When you connect 3D capable HDTV and Blu-ray Disc™ Player with a high speed HDMI™ cable, the STR-DA3700ES can pass through a 3D signal, so you can enjoy 3D picture with high quality sound
