Product Features:
  • Five 65-watt-per-channel power amplifiers
    The BDS 577 receiver features five amplifiers rated at 65 watts per channel to power a full surround-sound system.

You can also connect a powered subwoofer to generate additional low-frequency excitement.

    HDMI connectivity helps you get the most from 3D sources, with the highest-quality digital video and audio. Three HDMI input connectors make it easy to connect 3D-capable HDMI components. And Audio Return Channel lets you listen to your TV’s audio through your home theater system instead of the TV speakers.
  • Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD surround-sound decoding
    The BDS 577 receiver decodes high-resolution film soundtracks in their native formats – including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD surround sound – so you hear the sounds that filmmakers intended. You also get the best possible audio from external sources connected via HDMI technology.

  • Companion app from smart devices
    Here are two more things that your smartphone or tablet can do: control your BDS receiver and enhance it. Downloadable iOS and Android™ apps enable seamless control of your entertainment system from your smart devices, the wireless music streaming from those devices and more.

Does this support 4K 3D OLED tv?

Asked by: Kumar
The BDS 577 is integrated 3D Blu-ray Disc receiver. You cannot play a 3D Blu-ray disc in the BDS 577, this is because a 4K TV will force it into 4K resolution. All 3D discs are full HD (1080p), but cannot be reproduced in 4K, because 4K resolution cannot be combined with 3D. That said, if you want 3D movies to be shown correctly on the 4K TV, you would have to go in to the setup menu, selecting normal full HD resolution in the picture settings menu.

Does this unit have an internal cross over for the subwoofer?

Yes, the BDS577 is a 5.1 system so it has an internal crossover for the SUB.
