Slim and stylish with great sound quality


I have been very pleased with this unit and have not found anything as flexible that sounds nearly as good at the price. I believe it has now been replaced by the SA-XR50 which if the specs are anything to go is a marginally improved version in a...

I have been using this model for almost a year without any problems. It is a 'full digital' amplifier (if that floats your boat) so any analogue inputs are converted to digital before being amplified ; I find the sound quality very good - a real step...

Product Specifications

This slim design home theater receiver features components, which are designed for accuracy and timbre, imaging, sound staging, and impressive musicality. The result is clear, natural sound with precise stereo imaging. When music and soundtracks are recorded digitally, the compression that occurs can impact the overall sound quality, especially with MP3 and WMA files. Re-master processing helps to compensate for any frequencies lost due to compression during recording, providing a rich sound field. This model features the latest decoders for Dolby Digital, which enables you to achieve a remarkably natural sense of ambiance and dynamic realism, a spacious surround effect, and realistic, accurate sound for your home theater. Multi-channel amplifiers with high output capability provide accurate reproduction of Dolby Digital, DTS, and DVD-Audio recordings. They use digital processing from signal input all the way through to output, letting you enjoy the full potential of today's most advanced audio sources. You get extremely clear, powerful sound with remarkable depth, richness, and presence. Minimize electrical noise and assure the reliable transfer of high-fidelity sound data. With multiple digital inputs, this receiver can accommodate your DVD player, CD player, cable box, and future components that use coaxial and optical digital outputs. The built-in digital tuner provides accurate tuning of radio broadcasts. Sound Field Control enables you to achieve stunning audio effects to match your music and your mood at the push of a button. The speaker size configuration setting optimizes the output for accurate sound reproduction, regardless of speaker size.
