Denon 3D-Ready Receivers Ready to Launch


Denon’s first 3D-ready receivers will go on sale here next month, priced from $799.

There will be two 5.1 channel models (AVR-391, AVR-591), a 7.1 channel model (AVR-791), and a 7.2 channel model (AVR-891).

Features will include HDMI v1.4a repeater inputs with 3D (all mandated formats), CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) support, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding, 24-bit/192-kHz digital-to-analogue converters, and three Quick Select buttons on the front panel and remote control for one-key selection of input source, volume, surround mode and Audyssey settings.

Common to the AVR-591 ($1,099) and above will be Audio Return Channel, analogue-to-HDMI video conversion for one-cable connection to the TV, and an updated screen display that’s meant to be more intuitive and viewable over HDMI for simplified adjustment with HD content.

The AVR-791 ($1,499) and AVR-891 ($1,999) will offer video processing and scaling from Anchor Bay Technologies (ABT), multi-zone capabilities and a Power Amp Assign function for flexible configuration of their seven-channel power amplifiers.

All four models will have an iPod dock accessory control port and a Compressed Audio Restorer to improve the aural quality of MP3, AAC and other compressed audio formats.

The AVR-791 and AVR-891 also will have a Digital Direct USB input for iPhone and iPod for better digital-to-analogue conversion.

Denon’s also announced for November, as part of its 100th Anniversary Product Collection, the company’s ultimate home cinema showpiece, the AVR-A100.

The 9.2 channel receiver will boast Denon Link 4th, high-bit i/p conversion and scaling, advanced connectivity, network audio/photo streaming, gold plated inputs/outputs, cast iron footing to stabilise sound quality, and what’s being touted as a stunning new interface.
