    Selling this Denon Receiver for your Home Theater System or Video Game Console. Comes with Remote and all books and manuals are now online! Here are the full details.
    85 Watts x 5 channels
    Dynamic Discrete Surround Circuit (DDSC)
    In the pursuit of sound with better fidelity, it was necessary to overcome problems inherent in conventional surround circuits, such as:
    The adaptive matrix and each of the decoder parts are contained in a single integrated circuit chip, limiting their processing capabilities.
    Having the analog and digital processing sections in a single chip makes it easy for mutual interference to develop between the digital and analog sections, causing deterioration in sound quality.
    Denon's answer to this is the DDSC.
    The group of decoder parts which were accommodated in a single chip have been carefully selected out on independent chips. This significant development has following advantages:
    Achievement of surround reproduction with better fidelity
    Improved processing capability in each section of the decoder
    Escape from the effect of high frequency noise, allowing a purer signal to be extracted.
    The Digital Signal Processor in an ordinary decoder creates surround sound by varying the delay (the effect of delaying the rear signal with respect to the front signal). In addition to delay variation, the DDSC has the capability of varying the frequency characteristics. Together these two capabilities enable the creation of much more effective sound.
    The DDSC creates realistic surround sound, giving a feeling of being in a movie theater (Dolby Pro Logic), of being present at a stadium (Super Stadium surround mode) or the atmosphere of listening to jazz at a night club (Jazz Club surround mode).
    However, the DDSC alone cannot create superior sound. The signal must not only pass through the decoder, but also through a variety of circuits. Denon uses an independent power supply for the microprocessor controller and gives careful thought to layout, avoiding problems which would otherwise adversely affect sound purity.
    Fully Discrete 5-channel Power Amplifier
    Offers a fully discrete 5-channel power amplifier to support the dynamic performance of the Dolby Digital (AC-3) sound signal from Laser Disc or DVD.
    All channels have an equal power output of 85 watts each and are configured as independent monaural amplifiers.
    This construction enables the AVR-3200 to produce dynamic realism through its high-current capability and to recreate a nuanced surround sound effect via superior channel separation.
    Rich Selection of Surround Modes
    Dolby Surround Modes
    Normal -- Used with one or two center speakers that are smaller than the front left and right speakers.
    Wide -- Used with one center speaker of the same grade as the front left and right speakers, this is the best mode for playback of sources recorded in Dolby surround sound.
    Phantom -- Used when there are no center speakers. Sound is electronically reproduced in the center by a directional emphasis circuit.
    Dolby Digital AC-3 -- see below.
    Other Surround Modes
    5-Channel Stereo
    Mono Movie -- Adds breadth to monaural sound sources. Enjoy lifelike playback from the tracks of old movies and other sound sources recorded before the advent of stereo.
    Rock Arena -- Recreates the powerful impact of live rock concerts. Effective with a variety of musical performances.
    Jazz Club -- Lets you enjoy a jazz performance as if you were sitting just in front of the musicians in a live jazz house, where ceilings are low and acoustics are tight.
    Matrix -- Gives you the same sort of 4-channel effects possible with Speaker Matrix.
    Video Game
    6-Channel Ext In
    Dolby Digital AC-3
    A revolutionary step up the path to realistic sound in the home, providing you a dramatic improvement in extremely wide dynamic and frequency range, with low-distortion reproduction. It delivers six totally separate (discrete) channels of sound, including Left, Center and Right channels across the front of the room. Dolby Digital AC-3 also provides separate Left Surround and Right Surround channels for more precise localization of sounds and a more convincing, realistic feel. All five main channels are full range (3 Hz to 20,000 Hz). A subwoofer could be added to each channel if desired. The sixth channel, the Low Frequency Effects Channel, can contain additional bass information to maximize the impact of scenes such as explosions, crashes, etc.
    All six channels are digital, which means that they can be transferred without loss from the producer's mixing console to your home playback system. Dolby Digital AC-3 packs all six channels into less space than a single channel on a Compact Disc requiem. This advanced approach to coding digital audio data is what makes it possible for Dolby Digital AC-3 soundtracks to be added to conventional laser discs.
    Radio Data System (RDS)
    RDS data are inaudible control signals in digital form, which are sent along with FM radio signals, providing the following functions:
    PS (Program Service Name) displays the name of broadcast station.
    RT (Radio Text Message) displays custom messages containing up to 128 characters.
    CT (Clock Time) -- The built-in clock is adjusted according to information received such as time zone and Daylight Saving Time/Standard Time.
    RDS Search -- Many stations transmit PI (Program Identification) code consisting of information such as country, area and program. RDS Search will search for such stations in seek mode.
    PTY (Program Type) Search -- Many RDS Stations send Program Type Identification code. PTY Search will automatically scan for your desired program type, such as a news program.
    TP Search -- Searches for TP (Traffic Program Identification) code sent by stations who broadcast traffic information. When TA (Traffic Announcement Identification) code is received, even if you're listening to a cassette tape or the volume level is set to 0, the receiver switches to radio automatically at a set volume level. When the announcement is finished, it returns to the original volume level and function.
    AF Search -- The same program is often transmitted at different frequencies area by area. RDS stations transmit an AF (Alternative Frequencies) list which shows frequencies containing the same program. When a signal's strength falls beneath a certain level, AF Search starts and a stronger signal frequency is automatically tuned in.
