Denon AVR-1604


Having been a Denon fan for many years, I decided to by this unit and see how it performed. I hooked it up to my 3 Kef Q15.2's, Celestion MP!'s for the rear and an Athena ASP-400 Sub. I use a Toshiba 36" TV. Set up was relatively easy, though the...

Product Specifications

The AVR-1604's chassis supports the large transformer and has been designed to absorb vibration. The transformer is housed inside a highly rigid frame to secure it more solidly to the chassis. DENON's Twin Drive Rectifier design uses two rectifying diodes in parallel to bring out the maximum potential of the large transformer. Since the rectifiers power the large block capacitors at low impedance, they are able to supply ample current to reproduce deep basses as well as sudden bursts of sound from percussion or other musical instruments. DENON uses large heatsinks made of extruded aluminum. They have been placed in a design that ensures mostly uniform temperatures throughout the heatsink so that the output transistors for all channels can be driven under uniform conditions. For optimum Dolby Digital and DTS reproduction, the AVR-1604 features high quality, wideband audio amplification, providing 75 watts power output for each of the six main channels. A large capacity power supply includes a high current power transformer along with discrete power output devices on all six amplifier channels for highest dynamic range and superb reproduction clarity. A-high -quality 32-bit DSP "MELODY 32" from Analog Devices has been used in the DSP processor, placing the AVR-1604 at a higher rank than other models of this class in its ability to accurately decode and reproduce the superior quality of surround sources. The power amp circuits of the AVR-1604 have been meticulously designed to reproduce the exceptionally high sound quality with wide frequency response from 10 Hz to 100 kHz. 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. The AVR-1604 includes the Personal Memory Plus function that automatically remembers the surround mode you last used for each program source, so that you do not need to select the mode again for that program. As with all of DENON's high-grade A/V receiver, the AVR-1604 lets you adjust delay times and other parameters so that you can customize the performance of the AVR-1604 to suit your own home theater and enhance operating ease. The supplied system remote controller features a large selection of remote control codes to operate other components in your home theater system.
