ADV-700
Versatile 5-channel DVD Surround Receiver in Slim Elegant Design
The ADV-700 features an advanced all-in-one DVD player / 5-channel A/V receiver combination with the new Dolby Digital/
Pro Logic II decoder, which lets you enjoy the full ambience of 5.1-channel sound from a wealth of program sources.
With the ADV-700 and Dolby Pro Logic II, you can convincingly simulate the realism of 5.1-channel surround sound from
conventional 2-channel sources such as videos and CDs as well as play DVDs recorded in full 5.1-channel surround.
The ADV-700 also features an elegant, space-saving design that blends harmoniously in any home theater decor.

■ Dolby Digital and DTS Decoders
■ CD and CD-R/CD-RW Playback (*1)
Equipped with both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 channel decoding, the ADV-700
provides thrilling surround sound with the thousands of Dolby Digital and
DTS encoded DVDs, as well as the growing library of DTS 5.1 channel
music recordings available on CD.
• Enjoy your favorite music CDs, CD-Rs, and CD-RWs with Denon’s
legendary audio playback quality.
• Enjoy CD-R/RW discs encoded in MP3.
The ADV-700 also automatically plays back discs encoded with MP3
music files, that you or others have recorded on to CD-R or CD-RW.
■ Dolby Pro Logic II Decoder
(*1): Discs that have been poorly finalized following recording may be only partially
playable or not playable at all.
• Enjoy any 2-channel source in stunning 5.1-channel surround
playback.endary audio playback quality.
The Dolby’s newly developed Pro Logic II decoder reproduces dynamic
5.1-channel surround sound from any 2-channel source: DVD, VHS,
satellite and television broadcasts, radio, and CDs. Dolby Pro Logic II
uses matrix decoding technology that has been dramatically improved
over Pro Logic. With Pro Logic II, for instance, the Surround (Rear) channels
are in stereo (only mono with Pro Logic) and playback covers the full
frequency range (only up to 7 kHz with Pro Logic). These improvements
let you enjoy a wide variety of 2-channel sources with the exciting effects
of 5.1-channel surround sound.
■ On-screen Display
The ADV-700 lets you make system settings via displays on your TV
screen from the comfort of your chair. The settings are also simpler to
adjust thanks to the ADV-700's new Quick Set-up feature that lets you
set the system to either 5.1-channel or 2-channel playback, which then
automatically sets the sound space settings accordingly. Of course, you
can at any time fine-tune the settings on-screen to more closely match
your particular listening space. In this case, making the settings from
your chair has the added advantage of listening to the effects while you
adjust the settings.
■ Super Sub Alias Filter
2-ch stereo playback
5-ch surround playback
When simulating 5.1-channel surround from 2-channel sources, the sound that Dolby Pro
Logic output through the Surround speakers was only a monaural synthesis of the two
stereo channels (left diagram). With Pro Logic II, however, the output from the Surround
speakers is in stereo, giving you an enhanced sense of space (right diagram).
■ Auto Decode
When you insert a disc, the convenient Auto Decode function automatically
detects the sound format (Dolby Digital, DTS, or music CD) and starts playing
the disc. It also detects digital broadcast satellite (DBS) signals, so that when
you are receiving a 5.1-channel broadcast, for instance, you will automatically
hear it full surround sound. With Auto Decode, you can just enjoy the programs
and not worry about making manual settings of your own.
• High Resolution Picture.
The video decoder uses a Super Sub Alias Filter that extends the video
band into the high range while also suppressing noise from outside this
band. This results in high picture quality playback with enhanced horizontal
resolution and greater detail.
■ Resume Playback Function
When you stop a DVD movie or music program in the middle and have even
turned off the ADV-700's power (leaving it in standby mode), pressing the
play button on the remote controller lets you continue the program in the
same playback mode from where it was stopped.
■ Personal Memory Plus
The ADV-700’s Personal Memory Plus function allows you to store the
parameter of the surround mode for further sound source customization. A
single push of any source button will instantly recall the settings stored
for each of the sound sources.
