Product Specifications

The AVR-983 features an equal power 7-channel amplifier section, with identical amplifier design on all 7 channels, with high current discrete output devices on all channels. Each of the 7 amplifier channels is rated at 90 watts, into 8 ohms, from 20 Hz - 20 kHz with no more than 0.05% THD. High-quality 96-kHz, 24-bit (96/24) sound playback from ordinary DVD-Video recordings is limited to only two channels and there are also limitations on the picture. DVD-Video recorded in DTS 96/24, however, allows high-quality 5.1-channel sound playback in full-quality, full-motion video. The AVR-983 is equipped with a DTS-ES decoder that supports Discrete 6.1 and Matrix 6.1. Discrete 6.1 faithfully reproduces program sources originally recorded in 6.1-channel sound, and Matrix 6.1 performs matrix processing on the Surround and Left Surround signals and brings out Right Surround Back channels. With the AVR-983, you can use Dolby Pro Logic II to do more than just enjoy your 2-channel analog, PCM, and Dolby Digital 2-channel sources in surround sound ambiance. The AVR-983 can automatically store the surround mode for any of four input signals: (1) Analog and PCM 2 channel, (2) Bit stream 2-channel (Dolby Digital, DTS) and (3) Bit stream multi-channel. If the type of input signal changes, the most appropriate surround mode is automatically selected for the signal. The AVR-983's Component Video terminals allow you to connect, and switch, up to 2 sources utilizing these high resolution video outputs. A high-performance relay with a 100MHz bandwidth is utilized to switch signals with no signal loss or degradation, making it most compatible with HDTV and Progressive Scan DVD sources. These terminals can be especially useful if your display device has only one set of Component Video inputs. When temperatures rise or fall inside the unit, bias current values supplied to the power transistor tend to fluctuate, causing sound quality to deteriorate. The high power custom transistor used in the AVR-983 ensures that the bias current is constantly uniform so that the sound you hear is of consistently stable, high quality.
