Denon AVR-1712 Surround Receiver Details

Denon's AVR-1712 is a 7.1ch A/V Surround Receiver and features HDMI 1.4a 6In/1Out 3D ready, audio return channel, HDMI Standby pass through and discrete power amps rated at 9.

  • 7-Channel Equal Power: a feature used in multiple Denon amplifiers to connect 7 speakers independently so that separate power amps connected via pre-outs are not required.
  • 7-Channel Stereo: this mode enables top quality normal 2 channel stereo output from the surround speakers to provide a unique 7 channel stereo option. It can be fully utilized from any high quality stereo source via CD, tape, FM-radio or video recorder for dynamic 7-channel output.
  • AL24 Processing Plus: this new technology thoroughly suppresses quantization noise with D/A conversion of LPCM signals to reproduce the low-level signals with optimum clarity that brings out all the delicate nuances of the music.
  • ASD-1R: convenient iPod docking station compatible with the Denon AVR-1712, includes charging, iPod control and playback of audio and video content is possible. Both the ASD-1R and the AVR-1712 are dependent of each device's capabilities.
  • Audyssey Dynamic Volume: solves the problem of large variation in volume level between television programs, commercials, and between the soft and loud passages of movies.
  • Audyssey MultEQ XT: provides advanced room correction and calibration technology. It is able to automatically determine how many loudspeakers are connected, whether they are connected in phase and whether they are satellites or subwoofers.
  • Auto Set-Up/Room EQ Adjust: this feature eases setup hassles by confirming speaker phase, assessing the sizes of all your speakers, measuring speaker-to-listener distances, and balancing speaker levels.
  • Cinema Equalizer: the sound from movie sources recorded in Dolby Digital, dts, or other formats emphasizes high-frequency range due to a theaters front speakers being placed behind the movie screen, if this sound is reproduced in the home theater without correction, the high-frequency range can be too strong. Denon amplifiers feature the Cinema Equalizer to correct these high-frequency components so that the sound is cleaner and easier to listen to.
  • Custom Integration: this is Denon's certification to custom installers that models marked with the CI stamp have advanced connectivity and control features often required for custom home integration and theater applications using premium control systems.
  • Dolby Digital: multi-channel digital signal format developed by Dolby Laboratories, and it consists of up to 5.1 channels (front left, front right, center, surround left, surround right, and an additional channel reserved for additional deep bass).
  • Dolby Digital Plus: Next-generation multichannel audio format, delivers up to 7.1 channels of better-than-DVD-quality surround sound in Blu-ray discs.Advanced coding efficiencies facilitate BD-Live and Bonusview playback and enable rich surround sound audio from digital broadcast, IPTV, and streamed and downloadable media.
  • Dolby Pro Logic IIx:furthers the matrix decoding technology of Dolby Pro Logic II to decode audio signals recorded on 2 channels up to 7.1 playback channels, including the surround back channel.
  • DTS 96/24: used to describe the high resolution technology featuring 96 kHz sampling rate and 24-bit word length.
  • dts Digital Surround: multi-channel digital signal format developed by Digital Theater Systems. The primary advantage is that it offers higher data rates, leading many home theater enthusiasts to claim the sound quality for movie or music audio tracks to be closer to the original master recordings.
  • dts Neo:6 Surround: this mode applies conventional 2-channel signals to the high precision digital matrix decoder used for dts-ES Matrix 6.1 to achieve 6.1-channel surround playback.
  • dts-ES Extended Surround: multi-channel digital signal format that is used professionally in movie theaters since 1999, dts-ES Extended Surround greatly improves the 360-degree surround impression and space expression.
  • GLO-KEY Technology: the keys on the remote control are made of fluorescent glow in the dark material to allow for easy use in dark rooms.
  • HD Radio: Enables the reception of high-quality digital AM and FM stations which broadcasts simultaneously with traditional analog signals, HD Radio signals provide crystal-clear CD-quality sound, program information, and multiple channels of programming on the same FM frequency.
  • HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface): this is a digital interface standard for next generation television developed based on the DVI used for computer displays and optimized for use in non-professional equipment. With this non-compressed digital video and multi-channel audio signals can be transferred with a single connector, eliminating the need to use separate cables for picture and sound and making it possible to make connectors smaller.
  • Made for iPod: The Made for iPod mark signifies that this product has been designed to work with iPod devices either through docking stations or connection cables.
  • MP3 (MPEG 1, Audio Layer 3): considered one of the most popular codec for storing and transferring music, it manages to deliver reasonable sound quality in files that are 80 to 90% smaller than comparable uncompressed WAV files.
  • Multi-Room Entertainment System: Denons Multi Source function lets you select different audio sources for listening in different locations.
  • Noise Shaped Video (NSV): this feature works in the digital domain to reduce noise in the video signal frequency band in order to enhance video signal linearity, provide the most accurate signal representation, and enhance the picture quality.
  • Personal Memory Plus: this allows a receiver to store the surround modes, the level setting for all speakers, and the delay time to further customize the sound source.
  • Rhapsody: this subscription-based online music service from Real Networks gives users unlimited access to a vast library of major and independent label music.
  • Sirius Ready: this delivers the best commercial-free music, plus all the top professional and college sports, expert sports talk, uncensored comedy and entertainment, news from the most trusted sources and local traffic and weather.
