In this improved special listening mode, the highest possible signal purity is assured for both analog and digital sources except HDMI audio input, in either two-channel or multichannel input. Digital ToP-ART and High Current Amplification The Digital ToP-ART design concept combines the latest and best technologies, parts and circuit designs to maximize sound quality. High Current Amplification uses superior quality components from input to output to achieve high current power with low impedance. 1 Also, Yamaha 2 has completely re-evaluated all parts, choosing only the finest audio-grade 3 4 parts and devices, such 1 High grade Burr-Brown DAC, ADC as Burr-Brown and Op-Amp devices 192 kHz/24-bit 2 Custom made block capacitors 3 Extra-large power transformer DACs and re4 Power supply with pure-copper designed binding post power supply circuits for massive power and superlative sound quality. In addition, the amplifiers are assignable for bi-amp connections. High Picture Quality converted to HDMI output, with a Time Base Corrector (TBC) in the Analog Devices highperformance encoder and decoder. In addition, the RXV2600 also uses an Oplus™ highVideo circuit board performance de-interlacer for the best quality progressive video images (480i to 480p or 576i to 576p). It also upscales 480i or 576i signals to 1080i/720p high definition resolution. The de-interlacing and up-scaling technologies used in the RX-V2600 are superior to those of any other receiver in its class. Advanced Facilities HDMI Interface The RX-V2600 offers 2 in / 1 out HDMI switching with analog video upconversion features, providing the most advanced method of delivering high quality video signals to a home cinema system to enable the reproduction of DVD and satellite TV sources with HD quality.
