Call it Audio Muscle — Class D3 Amplification
Rated at 140 Watts x 9 channels (8 Ohms, 1kHz, 0.08% THD), the SC-79 is one of the most powerful multi-channel AV receiver we’ve ever built. While lesser amplifiers’ output diminishes as channels are added, the SC-79 has the power to drive multiple channels simultaneously with no significant drop in per-channel output. This ensures that you’ll enjoy the full impact and dynamic range of high-resolution multi-channel audio as never before. Plus, the power consumption of the Digital Class D3 Amplifier is well below that of conventional Class AB amplifiers, helping you to save energy, too.
