What the R-K711 Can Do
Wide range of recording formats
Play Discs
As well as music CDs, the R-K711 will also play discs containing recorded audio files (MP3/
WMA/AAC).
Supports a host of component types
External Input Terminals
As well as analog input terminals for record players or cassette decks, the R-K711 also features
an input terminal for digital audio players.
It even has a digital input terminal with sampling rate converters so that you can use
components such as digital tuners.
Create the perfect sound space for your installation setting
Room Equalizer
The R-K711 automatically optimizes the audio settings for your room layout and system
location.
You simply set up the microphone supplied with the R-K711 in the listening position and then
start up the Room Equalizer.
Realistic audio playback with near-original sound
Supreme EX
Original Kenwood audio enhancement technology that reproduces the high-bandwidth
component in the original sound produces incredibly realistic audio that restores almost all
the nuances of the original performance.
This reproduces high-range bands of 20 kHz and higher from audio CD or digital input.
It also reproduces the high-range bands lost through data compression when you play audio
files (MP3/WMA/AAC).
Choose your favorite audio quality
Digital Sound Equalizer Function
This includes “TONE/TURN OVER”, which you can use to select detailed audio characteristics for
the low-, mid- and high-range bands, as well as “D-BASS” which allows you to add super-bass
functionality.
You can also register 3 pre-loaded “sound presets” for each setting, making it even easier to
select your favorite sound quality.
