For optimum Dolby Digital and DTS reproduction, the AVR-1403 features
high quality, wideband audio amplification, providing 70 watts power output for each of the five main channels. A large capacity power supply
includes a high current power transformer along with discrete power output devices on all five amplifier channels for highest dynamic range and
superb reproduction clarity.
■ Dolby Pro Logic II Decoder
Enjoy 2-channel stereo recordings in stunning 5.1-channel surround
playback.
The Dolby Pro Logic II decoder reproduces dynamic 5.1-channel surround
sound not only from normal 5.1-channel DVD but from 2-channel
sources such as videos and CDs, too. Dolby Pro Logic II uses matrix
decoding technology that has been dramatically improved over Pro
Logic. With Pro Logic II, for instance, the Surround (Rear) channels are
in stereo (only mono with Pro Logic) and playback covers the full frequency
range (only up to 7 kHz with Pro Logic). These improvements let you
enjoy a wide variety of 2-channel sources with the exciting effects of 5.1channel surround sound.
■ Dolby Digital and DTS Decoders
Equipped with both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 channel decoding, the
AVR-1403 provides thrilling surround sound with the thousands of
Dolby Digital and DTS encoded DVDs, as well as the growing library of
DTS 5.1 channel music recordings available on CD.
■ Cinema Equalizer
The sound from movie sources recorded in Dolby Digital, DTS or other
formats emphasizes high-frequency range due to a theater’s front speakers being placed behind the movie screen. If this sound is reproduced in
the home theater without correction, the high-frequency range is too
strong. The AVR-1403 features a Cinema Equalizer to correct these highfrequency components so that the sound is clearer and easier to listen to.
(For Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II, and DTS surround modes)
■ 5 Channel Stereo Mode
DENON's popular 5 Channel Stereo mode transforms your favorite
2-channel sources such as CD, tape, stereo radio and stereo video
sources into exciting surround sound, free of delay effects and
unnatural artifacts, from all five speakers. This 5 Channel Stereo
mode was originally developed by DENON to enhance music lovers'
enjoyment of home theater ambience.
■ Virtual Surround Mode
Surround yourself with sensational 3D soundfield envelopment using
just one pair of speakers. The AVR-1602's Virtual Surround mode
provides a dramatic psychoacoustic surround sound effect, using two
speakers with Dolby Digital 5.1 encoded sources.
■ DENON DSP Surround Modes Add Listening Excitement
Put yourself in the middle of your favorite concert hall and music
environments with DENON's DSP acoustic environment simulation
modes. These DSP modes add spacious surround sound enhancements
to your favorite music and video sources, and include these distinctly
different sounding effects:
1. 5 Channel Stereo
2. Virtual Surround
3. Rock Arena
4. Jazz Club
5. Video Game
6. Matrix
7. Mono Movie
