Product Specifications

The R-865 receiver shares a number of key technologies with the top-of-the-line home theater separate, the P-965. With items like the Cirrus Crystal CS-49400 DSP processor, Burr Brown PCM-1703 DAC's, AKM's AK-5380 A to D converters and Analog Devices AD-1896 sample rate converter, performance nudges the state-of-the-art. The R-865 decodes virtually every technology on the market including Dolby's brand new DPL IIx. A longer list includes DTSES Discete and Matrix, DTS 96/24, DTS-Neo 6, Dolby Digital Surround EX, Dolby Headphone Levels 1, 2, and 3 and more. In the fast moving audio world, it's hard to keep up with all the new advances. The R-865 has upgradeable operating system. As new technologies emerge they can be added to keep these receivers continually up-to-date.
