Denon AVR-1609 Receiver


Because you can never have enough HDMI ports in your home theater setup, Denon is here to provide plenty.

At one point, a home theater system consisted of a TV and a VCR. Now, the more HDMI ports you can buy, the better. Denon's AVR-1609 gets a handle on all of that, directing traffic between multiple media sources and your TV -- as well as stereo speakers...

Product Specifications

Affordability and versatility are the hallmarks of the AVR-1609, which features a powerful 7 channel amplifier section to drive a 7.1 multi-channel speaker system, along with the latest extended surround decoders, including Dolby Digital Surround EX, Dolby Pro Logic IIx and DTS ES. Equipped with the latest HDMI v1.3a digital video signal pass-through technology, the AVR-1609 provides 2 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output, allowing a single HDMI cable run to your HDTV display. The advanced Audyssey MultEQ in-room acoustic measurement and optimization system automatically analyzes the listening room’s acoustics at up to six different measurement locations, and develops an appropriate acoustic correction algorithm that provides smooth, natural tonal balance throughout the listening space. To eliminate irritating volume jumps between TV shows and commercials, the AVR-1609 is one of the first to offer Audyssey’s Dynamic Volume automatic volume leveling system, and Audyssey Dynamic EQ ensures rich bass and smooth tonal balance, even at low volume levels. Expansion options abound, with media network connectivity (via optional ASD-3N/3W), along with iPod compatibility (via optional ASD-1R/3N/3W), and the AVR-1609 features Denon's exclusive Compressed Audio Restorer that automatically improves the fidelity of your favorite portable audio tracks.
