2008/2009 Denon AV Receivers announced


Recommended Posts



Every model includes HDMI 1.3a inputs with support for Deep Color. The majority of models offer 4 HDMI ports, with the lesser expensive AVR-689 ($399) and AVR-789 ($599) providing three ports and the AVR-589 ($299) offering a total of 2 ports.


The AVR-2809CI ($1,199), AVR-2309CI ($849), AVR-1909 ($649), AVR-989 ($1,199), AVR889 ($749) and AVR-789 offer 1080p upconversion and scaling from all analog video sources. Additionally, several models provide support for the advanced surround codecs Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. As one of the first manufacturer?s to adopt Audyssey technologies into their AVRs, Denon continues its unwavering support with the incorporation of Audyssey?s MultEQ, Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume in all ten new models.


Dynamic Volume is Audyssey?s latest technology and it works in conjunction with Dynamic EQ and MultEQ. MultEQ is, of course, the in-room acoustic measurement system that fine-tunes the entire listening space, not just a narrow sweet spot. Dynamic EQ provides loudness correction, while Dynamic Volume is a volume leveler.


A major issue when listening to movies and music at lower volumes is that voices can become inaudible during soft passages, bass disappears and the surround stage is less enveloping. With Dynamic EQ, the frequency response and surround levels are adjusted moment by moment because it carefully combines information from incoming source levels with actual output sound levels in the room. The addition of Dynamic Volume in all of Denon?s new AVRs addresses the issue of dramatic and disruptive changes in volume level between program material, particularly TV shows and commercials. By constantly monitoring the volume, Dynamic Volume is able to maintain a set listening level for all content while optimizing the dynamic range.
