Product Specifications

The RX-V596 is a 5-channel receiver providing Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, Dolby Pro Logic processing and Yamaha's Digital Sound Field Processing, Cinema DSP and Tri-Field Processing. The most advanced and realistic encoded surround sound for movies comes from Dolby Laboratories. The new Dolby Digital system is a fully discrete system providing six channels of sound. Five are full-frequency channels, and the sixth is a low frequency effects channel. Yamaha's exclusive Tri-Field Processing applies Digital Sound Field Processing technology to Dolby Digital and DTS to create a true movie theater experience in the home. It develops independent enhanced sound fields for the front signals as well as for left and right surround. Yamaha's exclusive Digital Sound Field Processing for music recreates the acoustic personalities of actual concert halls and other venues, such as the Roxy Theatre in L.A., Village Gate in N.Y., Anaheim Stadium and concert halls and churches in Europe. Cinema DSP multiplies the effects of Dolby Pro Logic and Yamaha DSP to provide the best possible Pro Logic movie theater recreation in your home. Tri-Field Processing DSP does the same for Dolby Digital and DTS.
