Product Specifications

The RX-D401S is a new audio/video receiver that offers the convenience and performance of HDMI up-conversion. It features USB inputs for streaming audio from a PC and JVC's Hybrid Feedback digital amplifier technology. HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a digital audio/video interface that allows a single cable to carry uncompressed audio and video signals in digital form, offering high quality signal transmission plus the simplicity of a single connection. With HDMI-equipped source components, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite box, just one cable connects the component to the JVC receiver. On the output side, a single HDMI cable connects the receiver to the display. To ensure the best possible video signal, regardless of the source, the RX-D401S up-converts composite, S-Video and component signals to HDMI. Handling the HDMI up-conversion is a Genesis deinterlacer that incorporates DCDi (Directional Correlational Deinterlacing) technology from Faroudja. It includes two HDMI inputs and one output. The new JVC receiver also features a USB connection that allows music to be sent from a PC to the receiver for playback. The connection is wireless on the RX-D702B, using the 2.4GHz band to transmit uncompressed signals over a range of approximately 100 feet. The receiver comes with a transmitter that plugs into the computer's USB input. Interference from other devices is automatically detected by the transmitter and an interference-free band is automatically selected. To deliver the best possible sound quality when playing compressed audio files, JVC receiver features the company's exclusive CC Converter, which uses advanced digital signal processing to improve the quality of these files. The CC Converter computes the data that was lost during the digital-to-analog conversion and recreates the original signal.
