AVR-5803
THX Ultra2 Certified A/V Surround Receiver with New Dolby Pro Logic IIx and HDCD Decoder
The AVR-5803 surround receiver inherits the critically acclaimed amplifier design characteristics of the AVR-5800 while adding
Denon's much improved DDSC-Digital sound processor for greater diversity in multi-channel reproduction of digital and analog
signals. The AVR-5803's objective is to bring out the maximum performance potential of all types of sound sources. This model also
provides a video conversion function for greater monitior connection flexibility, the added convenience of variable subwoofer crossover switching, that will ensure a listening environment that is as close to ideal as possible. With its support of THX Ultra2, Dolby
Pro Logic IIx, HDCD decoder and a wealth of other features, the AVR-5803 has become Denon's latest “Surround Reference” A/V
receiver for serious home theater enthusiasts.

(8 ohms, 20Hz - 20kHz, 0.05 % THD)
(8 ohms, 20Hz - 20kHz, 0.05 % THD)
The AVR-5803 features an equal power 7-channel amplifier section, with identical
amplifier design on all 7 channels. The Front (L/R), Center, and Surround (L/R)
channels are driven by 170 watts of power each, and the two Surround Back channels, used for 6.1-channel DTS-ES and DOLBY DIGITAL EX sources, are also
each powered with 170 watts (all channels rated into 8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz).
High current, low impedance drive-capable discrete power transistors are used for
each channel, and the high power output of 170 watts per channel (into 8 ohms)
ensures that the speakers are driven with ample foundation to reproduce movie
and music soundtracks with superb fidelity and the widest dynamic range.
The AVR-5803 proudly bears the THX Ultra2 logo, certifying that it satisfies the
newest certification standards of Lucasfilm Ltd., governing performance, features,
sound quality, power, stability into low-impedance speaker loads, and ease of
operation.
■ Accurate Signal Transmission from the Pre-amplifier Section
Parts suitable for high attenuation have been strictly selected for use in the volume circuit that controls the signal levels of all eight channels. Since a differential
D/A configuration has also been adopted for each channel, the widest possible
dynamic range is secured with mutual interference effectively suppressed across
the entire frequency range. The pre-amp's gain is varied to match the output
level, improving S/N in the range where the volume is often used. Highly accurate
volume adjustment in variable steps of 0.5 dB in the range of -80 to +15 dB is
possible as well.
■ High-quality Pure Audio Chassis Construction
By positioning the power transformer at the center of the unit, the AVR-5803 is
equipped with a chassis construction in which unwanted vibrations are suppressed
and excess vented heat is minimized. The digital circuits have been placed in the
lower center of the unit and are completely shielded in their own enclosure, and the
power amp circuits are located on the left and right sides. In addition, the analog
circuitry has been isolated from the video circuitry to completely eliminate any mutual
interference. The total chassis design preserves the purity of the audio signal from
input to output to give your home theater a clean yet powerful sound, alive with all
the details of the original recording.
■ Wide-Range Play Capability for DVD-Audio or SACD
■ New DDSC-Digital Processor, for High-quality Sound Reproduction
1. 24-bit, 192-kHz Analog-to-Digital Conversion
The AVR-5803 is capable of 24-bit, 96-kHz or 192-kHz A/D conversion,
improving S/N and dynamic range by approximately 10 dB. A/D conversion
and DSP processing (*1) of external input signals (max. 8 channels) is also
possible. The AVR-5803 is thus able to perform bass management and delay
processing on DVD-Audio signals. THX post processing is also possible with
this DSP.
(*1).
It is possible to select whether signals are to be processed by the DSP or output as an
analog signal.
2. 24-bit, 192-kHz Digital Interface Receiver
The AVR-5803 employs a total of four 24-bit, 192-kHz digital interface receivers,
one for every two channels, enabling multi-channel digital input through DENON
Link or external digital input to perform at optimum potential.
3. New SHARC Dual 32-bit Floating Point DSPs
The AVR-5803 uses a dual configuration of new HammerHead SHARC 21161
32-bit floating point DSPs from Analog Devices.
4. 24 bit, 192 kHz All-channels Differential-mode D/A Conversion
For optimum fidelity and transparency, the AVR-5803 features 16 of the latest
Burr-Brown PCM-1738E high resolution 24-bit, 192 kHz DACs, in.an eight
channel, differential configuration (2 DAC channels per each audio channel).
These DACs feature DSD compatibility.

■ DTS 96/24 5.1 Decoding for DVD-Video
High-quality 96-kHz, 24-bit (96/24) sound playback from ordinary DVD-Video 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.
■ Dolby Pro Logic IIx
Dolby Pro Logic IIx furthers the matrix decoding technology of Dolby Pro Logic II to
decode audio signals recorded on two channels into up to 7.1 playback channels,
including the surround back channel. Dolby Pro Logic IIx also allows 5.1-channel
sources to be played in up to 7.1 channels.
The mode can be selected according to the source. The Music mode is the best suited for playing music, the Cinema mode for playing movies, and the Game mode for
playing games. The Game mode can only be used with 2-channel audio sources.
■ Dolby Headphone
Since sound from a headphone enters the ears directly, it can cause fatigue
during extended listening sessions. Dolby Headphone replicates the effects of
sound from speakers in a room by localizing the sound source at the front or the
side as though the listener were enjoying 3D sound at a movie theater. Dolby
Headphone is effective not only with Dolby Digital or Dolby Pro Logic but with
CD and other 2-channel sources as well. The AVR-5803 also lets you record
signals encoded with Dolby Headphone to other recorders so that you can enjoy
the effects of Dolby Headphone with a portable MD player or other device. (This
is possible with both analog and digital recordings.)
■ 5 Channel & 7 Channel Stereo Modes
■ Dual Surround Mode Speaker Selection
■ Adjustable Cross-Over Switching
The AVR-5803 supports subwoofer cross-over switching with a choice of 5 crossover frequencies: 40, 60, 80, 100, and 120. This lets you more accurately match
the performance characteristics of the subwoofer to the main speaker system.
■ DENON Digital Link
High-grade LPCM 24-bit, 96-kHz, 6-channel or 24-bit, 192-kHz, 2-channel (*3)
digital input is possible when the AVR-5803 is connected via a shielded twisted
pair (STP) cable to a DVD player that supports Denon Digital Link. Since Denon
Digital Link uses low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS), transfer capabilities of
greater than 1.2 Gbps at a differential voltage of approximately 0.3 Vpp are possible.
■ HDCD ® Decoder for HDCD ® Disc Playback
■ External Digital Input
For future system expansion, the AVR-5803 provides an external digital input port
that supports multi-channel (6-/8-channel PCM) input from an external unit. Multichannel digital signal input is possible using a maximum of 4 sets of coaxial digital
inputs.
■ Pure Direct Mode, to Deliver Pure Audio Quality
■ AL 24 Processing Plus
■ High-quality Component Video In/Out Terminals (100 MHz Bandwidth)
■ Video Conversion
The AVR-5803 is equipped with a video switching system that converts composite
video signals to S-Video and/or composite and S-video to component video. The
input signal types---whether composite, S-Video, or component---are auto detected,
then the signal with the highest picture quality is given highest priority and output to
the monitor.
(Manual operation can be used to override auto detection.)
■ Support for Multi Zone Configurations
The AVR-5803 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 up to 2 additional zones, in addition to the main room. Multi-room Zone 1
can have variable pre-amp output along with composite video feed, and Multiroom Zone 2 can have fixed stereo audio pre-output.
The AVR-5803’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 Multi-room Zone 2 speakers, with 170 Watts per channel output
power, while still providing 5 discrete amplifier channels to drive all speakers in a
5.1 configured home theater room.
