The ‘entry-class’ AVR-1612 (pictured) and AVR-1312 follow on from the standard adoption of 3D pass-through technology for all Denon A/V receivers in 2010.
Designed to help enable the ‘perfect home cinema experience’, the new products mark the start of Denon’s 3D home cinema receiver line-up for 2011, and will be available throughout Europe in May 2011.
Features common to both devices include: discrete amplification stages throughout; support for HDMI (1.4 with 3D), Deep Color and ‘x.v.Color’; 4 x HDMI in/1 x HDMI out; high-definition audio support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio; a GUI (overlay on HDMI source); Compressed Audio Restorer for digital music files; four quick-select buttons; and a low power consumption in stand-by mode.
While the AVR-1312 offers output power of 5 x 110W, the AVR-1612 yields 5 x 120W. Other features specific to the higher-spec model include: a front USB port with Digital Direct Play for iPod and iPhone; and Audyssey MultEQ and Audyssey Dynamic Volume.
