Product Specifications

This Kenwood digital AV receiver represents Kenwood's forward thinking, claiming the most advanced surround sound on the market today. The VR-505 boasts Variable Input Sensitivity with Individual Source Memory. Bass Boost feature enhances the low frequencies of any music selection, deepening the bass response and enhancing listening enjoyment. Enjoy KAM-1 Power Amplifier Circuitry - this exclusive Kenwood modular amplifier circuit doubles electrical efficiency, producing more power while generating less heat. Tuner features include Automatic and Manual Tuning, Direct Access Tuning, Direct Preset Call, Quartz PLL Synthesized Digital Tuning. Pink Noise Generator allows proper speaker balancing. It sends a static noise signal, in turn, to each channel, allowing you to adjust each channel's level and volume for the size of your environment and your listening preferences. Audio Digital Signal Processing (DSP) recreates different sonic environments, simulating the acoustics of locations like arenas, churches, and clubs. Playing music through a DSP mode creates a more vivid, life-like listening experience. DSP delivers sounds sculpted to recreate the reflections and reverberations that make live performances so satisfying. Full Function Remote Control provides complete control of the unit from the comfort and convenience of your chair. Simulated Surround Sound creates a phantom-center channel, expands the front left and right channels and "places" virtual surround speakers around you, simulating the effects of a multichannel system.
