Denon AVR-97 Dolby Digital & DTS A/V Receiver Quick Start Guide
NEW MODEL INFORMATION
AVR-97
Dolby Digital and DTS A/V Receiver
Outstanding surround sound an affordable price, with Dolby Digital and DTS decoding.
Featuring the latest in Dolby Digital and DTS decoding technology, the AVR-97 provides outstanding home theater surround
sound performance. The heart of the AVR-97 is Denon’s Dynamic Discrete Surround Circuit-Digital technology, incorporating high
performance dual DSP chips and superior A/D and D/A conversion devices. This provides superb listening results, with virtually
any home theater or music source. Prepared for the future, the AVR-97 features 6-Channel external input, for connection to future
multi-channel surround formats. A high quality, discrete power output section provides a total system power of 500 watts. Full 24-bit,
96 kHz digital-to-analog D/A converters on all 6 channels provide transparent reproduction of multi-channel music and motion picture
soundtracks with outstanding dynamic range and superb low level resolution. Outstanding surround sound an affordable price,
with Dolby Digital and DTS decoding. The AVR-97’s remote controller features an easy-to-use layout where most frequently used
buttons are provided in different colors and shapes for easy recognition, even while keeping your eyes on the screen. The buttons
also feature “Self-illuminated GLO-KEY” for easy operation in the dark.
■ Equal Power Discrete Power Amplifier
Front
100 W + 100 W (8 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.07 % THD)
Center
100 W
(8 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.07 % THD)
Surround 100 W + 100 W (8 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.07 % THD)
All five power amplifier channels feature discrete power output devices, and all five amplifier channels provide equal power
with lowest distortion. Each channel is rated at 100 watts, into
8 ohms, 1 kHz, with no more than 0.07% THD. A hallmark of
Denon A/V component design, the equal power amplifier provides outstandingly accurate reproduction of motion picture
soundtracks and multi-channel music programs.
■ DDSC-Digital (Dynamic Discrete Surround
Circuit-Digital)
Since surround signals are all processed in the digital domain,
the AVR-97 is equipped with a newly-developed, sophisticated,
high-performance dual DSP circuit for the Dolby Digital, Dolby
Pro Logic, dts decoders, and Surround Simulator. The D/A converters feature high resolution designs for all the Front L/R,
Center, Surround L/R, and Subwoofer channels. This combination of DSP and D/A converters works to bring out the tremendous potential of Dolby Digital and dts sound. In addition, high
resolution A/D converters have been incorporated for the Dolby
Pro Logic decoder. The high sound quality of New DDSC-Digital
is due in part to the high-grade signal processing of the 24-bit,
96-kHz Digital Interface Receiver (DIR). The AVR-3300 not only
allows digital signals input from DVD and other advanced media
to pass directly to the DIR, it also processes them while preserving their integrity so that even the most delicate nuances of the
music, reflecting the emotions of the artists, are passed unfettered to the dual digital signal processor (DSP).
Dynamic Discrete Surround Circuit-Digital Block Diagram
■ Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital and Dolby Pro Logic decoding functions are performed in the digital domain for excellent dynamic range and
crystal clear reproduction.
■ DTS
Digital Theater Systems decoding provides thrilling movie and
music multi-channel surround sound.
■ 96kHz, 24-bit Audio D/A Converters
■ 6-Channel External Input For Future Multi-Channel Formats
■ Separate Current Supplies for Circuits
The AVR-97 is equipped with a main transformer featuring
independent 5-winding outputs, and a dedicated transformer for
the microprocessor, to completely separate the power amplifier,
audio, digital, video, and display circuits. This construction
reduces noise interference among the circuits and ensures a
clean, transparent sound.
■ Hefty Power Transformer for Stable Supply of Power
A power transformer has been connected in the power section
where it is combined with a rectifier diode and a large block
capacitor to ensure a large, stable supply of electrical current.
Accordingly, the AVR-97 boasts high output power of 100 W for
each of the 5 channels.
■ Stable Speaker Drive
In the AVR-97, the circuitry through which current flows to
drive the speakers has been incorporated onto a single board
between the rectifier circuit of the power source and the
speaker terminals. A new phase correction circuit has also
been adopted, eliminating the need for an output coil. Since
this configuration allows the power transistor to drive the
speakers directly, there is no loss of power to any of the channels. The sound that you hear is thus extremely stable as well
as powerful.
■ Pre Outputs for System Upgrading
The pre-out terminals on the AVR-97 is offered for Front L/R,
Center and Mono (Subwoofer) channels. A separate power amp
can be connected to these terminals to upgrade your system.
■ Video Select Switch
This function lets you select video sources independently of
the audio sources.
■ All-channel Level Control
■ Binding Post Speaker Terminals for All Channels
■ Icon-based On-Screen Display
The AVR-97 provides an On-Screen Display (OSD) featuring icons (pictorial representations) to let you easily monitor
the current operating status.
■ Personal Memory Plus
The handy Personal Memory Plus function allows you to
store the surround mode, the level settings for all speakers,
as well as the delay time, to further customize the sound
source. Simply push any source button and it will instantly display the settings stored for that source.
