Denon DRA-397 AM/FM/FM Stereo Multi-Source/Multi-Zone Stereo Receiver Quick Start Guide
AM/FM Stereo Receiver
Multi Source / Multi Zone Audio Video Receiver features XM ready and,
iPod control and command capability
The DRA-397 AM/FM receiver offers high-performance operation, functionality and affordability, all in a single unit. It includes a Video Select feature that lets
you control a variety of video and audio signals, a set PRE OUT jacks that lets you listen to music in a sub-room as well as the main room, and it
supports room-to-room remote control. Denon is well known for its uncompromising approach to sound quality and the DRA-397 is no exception thanks to
the meticulous Denon-developed circuitry and the Signal Level Divided Construction (SLDC) chassis that prevents mutual interference among the circuits.
■ High-quality Power Amplifier
With 80 watts of power per channel (at 8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08% THD), the
DRA-397 delivers solid, reliable audio performance even when driving both A and B
speaker systems at the same time.
■ Signal Level Divided Construction Chassis Design
The circuit handling low-level signals has been divided into separate blocks to
ensure that influences from these signals on each other are held to an absolute
minimum. This new chassis design, known as the Signal Level Divided
Construction (SLDC), preserves the purity of the signal, allowing it to be reproduced with much greater fidelity and clarity.
■ Multi Source / Multi Zone
The DRA-397 has 2 source / 3 zone capability. Dedicated multi-room outputs, with
volume level adjustment via remote control, are provided for connection to powered
speakers or an additional amplifier in Zone 2 and Zone 3.
• Zone 2 output : Analog audio L/R, Composite Video
• Zone 3 output : Analog audio L/R, Composite Video
■ Custom Integrated
• Remote in/out IR command control
• Discrete Power on/off command
• IR off, panel lock mode
■ Pre-memory remote and Zone remote
Pre-memory remote for main zone can control TV, SAT, Cable, and zone remote can
be switched for zone 2 or zone 3 to control power, function, volume control.
■ Subwoofer output
■ Video Select Functin
Allows you to select a video source, and then select an alternate audio input source,
ideal for simulcasting, as well as watching TV sports programs while listening to radio
■ ASD-1R Control Dock for iPod® (option): Supports iPod playback
