Denon S-5BD Integrated 5.1 CH Dual Zone A/V Receiver & Blu-ray/DVD/CD Player Combo Quick Start Guide
New model information
Blu-ray Disc/DVD Surround Receiver
The desire of audiophiles, movie enthusiasts and custom integrators. . .
Pristine HD audio and video reproduction.
Combining Denon's renowned A/V receiver technologies and our reference-class Blu-ray disc playback expertise, the S-5BD integrated AVR/BD combo sets
the standard for user convenience, quick and easy setup, and superb high definition picture and sound quality. Featuring the latest high resolution audio
decoders, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, the S-5BD also includes Dolby Pro Logic IIz, which features Music and Cinema modes to provide thrilling surround sound from conventional two channel audio sources. As well, the S-5BD features Dolby Virtual Speaker, which provides enveloping
surround sound effects using only two front speakers. For quick and easy setup, the S-5BD features Audyssey's renowned MultEQ automatic room acoustic
measurement and correction system. Using the supplied calibration microphone, the system automatically measures and adjusts key audio parameters,
including number of speakers, speaker size and speaker distance, for truly balanced matched system performance. The integrated Blu-ray disc player features
BD-Live connectivity, along with DVD and music CD playback, and the S-5BD includes top notch video processing, upconverting SD programs to high definition, up to 1080p. iPod and USB media playback is also supported, and the S-5BD automatically sets the appropriate surround mode for each input.
Key Concept
• Audio and video engineering design of high-end components,
premium HD audio & video quality
• Speaker system flexibility
• Digital content friendliness
• Smart & simple concept
• Denon’s pure audio technologies
- Amplifier stage that achieves playback with uniform response and quality across all
channels, amply meeting expectations for high-quality sound from Blu-ray disc
- Amplifier circuit that reproduces music with superior sense of speed and rich ambience
- Newly-developed power stage with outstanding traceability for sudden bursts of sound
• Video technologies inherited from Denon’s high-end components
Audio and video engineering design of high-end components,
premium HD audio & video quality
• Support for HD audio formats:
Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD Master Audio
Support for latest surround formats:
Dolby Virtual Speaker and Dolby Pro Logic IIz
- 1080p/24 video output, for realistic reproduction of tactility in films
- Support for Deep Color and “x.v.Color”, to amply reproduce the colors
of HD quality from Blu-ray disc and other high definition sources such as HD camcorder
• Advanced Denon technologies
- AL24 Processing: Analog waveform reproduction technology
AL24 Processing interpolates signals that have been lost when the source was
• Denon’s original high-end Blu-ray disc drive mechanism,
for faithful reading and accurate playback of high-definition A/V signals from Bluray discs, DVDs and music CDs
recorded as digital data and reproduces the original analog waveform. By producing an
analog waveform that is as close as possible to the one that existed when the digital recording was made, it is possible to enjoy the realism of a concert hall, for instance, where
the music contains reverberations and other delicate details.
• Denon craftsmanship, in pursuit of ideal performance
in A/V playback devices
- Direct Mechanical Ground Construction, providing high-quality HD sound and
video by suppressing vibration
- Independent Block Construction, to faithfully reproduce video and audio signals by
guarding against electromagnetic noise
- Simple & Straight Signal Path and Minimum Signal Path,
for clean and pure A/V signas transfer
- Independent power supplies for each stage (Digital, Power amplifier, and Pre-amplifier
stages) to achieve clean, stable performance and lower standby power draw.
- Independent high-density circuit boards, to preserve signal purity during transfer
- Compressed Audio Restorer, to enhance digital music files
During playback of compressed audio sources such as WMA and MP3, Compressed
Audio Restorer interpolates data that has been lost during compression in order to restore
the original condition as closely as possible and correct the sense of volume in the low
range. When these audio files are played through the S-5BD, it is possible to enjoy a quality
of sound that is very close to the original prior to compression.
