A/V Surround Receiver
AVR-2803
Dolby Digital EX / DTS-ES and DTS 96/24 with 7ch Power Amps and Multi-room Flexibility
Dolby Digital EX and dts 96/24 have been added to offer full support for all encoded surround formats through the use of the new Analog Devices
Hammerhead Sharc DSP processor.
■ Fully Discrete, Equal Power Seven Amplifier Channels, 90 Watts Each
Front ..................... 90 W + 90 W (8 ohms, 20Hz - 20kHz, 0.05% THD)
Center................... 90 W
(8 ohms, 20Hz - 20kHz, 0.05% THD)
Surround............... 90 W + 90 W (8 ohms, 20Hz - 20kHz, 0.05% THD)
Surround Back ..... 90 W + 90 W (8 ohms, 20Hz - 20kHz, 0.05% THD)
The AVR-2803 features an equal power 7-channel amplifier section, with
identical amplifier design on all 7 channels, with high current discrete output
devices on all channels. Each of the 7 amplifier channels is rated at 90
watts, into 8 ohms, from 20 Hz - 20 kHz with no more than 0.05% THD.
■ DENON's Latest Surround Technology Faithfully Recreates the
Surround Sound Produced at the Dubbing Stage.
• DTS 96/24 5.1 Decoding for DVD-Video
High-quality 96-kHz, 24-bit (96/24) sound playback from ordinary DVDVideo recordings is limited to only two channels and there are also limitations on the picture. DVD-Video recorded in DTS 96/24, however, allows
high-quality 5.1-channel sound playback in full-quality, full-motion video.
• DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 and Matrix 6.1
The AVR-2803 is equipped with a DTS-ES decoder that supports Discrete
6.1 and Matrix 6.1. Discrete 6.1 faithfully reproduces program sources
originally recorded in 6.1-channel sound, and Matrix 6.1 performs matrix
processing on the Surround and Left Surround signals and brings out Right
Surround Back channels.
• DTS NEO:6
DTS NEO:6 lets you enjoy 2-channel analog, PCM, and Dolby Digital 2channel sources in full 6.1-channel surround sound.
• Dolby Digital EX
Dolby Digital EX, a 6-channel surround format proposed by Dolby
Laboratories, was jointly developed by Dolby Laboratories and LucasFilm
Ltd. to bring the dynamic wealth of Dolby Digital Surround EX into the
home. The warm playback of 6.1 channels which include surround back
channels enables easy positioning of sound images directly behind the listener, dramatically improving the spatial expressiveness of the surround
field.
• Dolby Pro Logic II
With the AVR-2803, you can use Dolby Pro Logic II to do more than just
enjoy your 2-channel analog, PCM, and Dolby Digital 2-channel sources in
surround sound ambiance.
• Auto Surround
The AVR-2803 can automatically store the surround mode for any of four
input signals: (1) Analog and PCM 2 channel, (2) Bit stream 2-channel
(Dolby Digital, DTS) and (3) Bit stream multi-channel. If the type of input
signal changes, the most appropriate surround mode is automatically
selected for the signal.
■ High-quality 100MHz Bandwidth Component Video Switching
The AVR-2803's Component Video terminals allow you to connect, and
switch, up to 2 sources utilizing these high resolution video outputs. A
high-performance relay with a 100MHz bandwidth is utilized to switch signals with no signal loss or degradation, making it most compatible with
HDTV and Progressive Scan DVD sources. These terminals can be especially useful if your display device has only one set of Component Video
inputs.
■ High Power Custom Transistor
When temperatures rise or fall inside the unit, bias current values supplied to the power transistor tend to
fluctuate, causing sound quality to deteriorate. The
high power custom transistor used in the AVR-2803
ensures that the bias current is constantly uniform so
that the sound you hear is of consistently stable,
high quality.
■ Finest DSP employed for faster processing and
higher sound quality
• 32-bit Floating Point DSP
Hammerhead Sharc, the latest DSP from Analog
Devices, is used for the decoder to further boost
digital signal processing capability and also providing
the highest dynamic range. Faster processing speed
results in more complete surround decoding.
■ 7-CH Stereo Mode
Denon's popular 5-CH/7-CH Stereo mode transforms your favorite 2channel sources such as CD, tape, stereo radio and stereo video
sources into exciting surround sound, free of delay effects and unnatural
artifacts, from all speakers. This 5-CH/7-CH Stereo mode was originally
developed by DENON to enhance music lovers' enjoyment in home theater ambience.

■ 24 bit, 96 kHz All-channels Differential-mode D/A Conversion
For the optimum fidelity and transparency, the AVR-2803 features new high
resolution Analog Devices 24-bit, 96 kHz DACs, in 16-DAC differential configuration (2 D/A channels per each audio channel).
■ Newly redesigned pre-programmed remote controller with learning
feature
The AVR-2803 comes with a newly-developed remote controller with the
most frequently used keys layed out in the center and an easy-to-grip shape
and size.
- Preset Memory
- Learning functions
- System Call
- Glow Keys
- Supports independent Power On and Off commands
■ Support for Multi Zone Configurations
• The AVR-2803 provides a Multi Zone Output function and a Select function
that let you output different sources to multiple zones. Sources can be selected for output to an additional zone, in addition to the main room. Multi-room
Zone 2 can have variable pre-amp output. The AVR-2803's Power Amplifier
Assign function lets you assign the 2 Surround Back (SB L/R) amplifier channels when the system is not configured for 7.1, to instead drive the Multiroom Zone 2 speakers, with 90 Watts per channel output power, while still
providing 5 discrete amplifier channels to drive all speakers in a 5.1 configured home theater room.
• +12 V Trigger Output
• Serial Control Port to support an AMX, Crestron integrated control system
• Remote IN/OUT
■ 1 Set of 8-Channel External Analog Inputs
■ Other features that enhance operating ease
• Variable Gain Volume
S/N in the usable area has been improved. Finer adjustments are also possible in 0.5 dB steps across the extended range of –80 dB to +18 dB.
• Adjustable Cross-Over Switching
The AVR-2803 supports subwoofer cross-over switching with a choice of 5
cross-over frequencies: 40, 60, 80, 100, and 120 Hz. This lets you more
accurately match the performance characteristics of the subwoofer to the
main speaker system.
