You can adjust the following surround
Turns the effect signals with multi-surround mode speaker effects on and off
in the Wide Screen mode. When turned off, the surround back channel signals
are equivalent to the surround channels
Level: Sets the strength
of the effect signals in the Wide Screen mode. It can be set in 15 steps,
from 1 to 15. Set to a low level if the positioning or phase of the surround
signals sounds unnatural.
SB Ch Out:
Indicates whether or not you are using surround back speaker(s)
Room Size: Sets the size
of the sound field among five settings: Small, Med.S (medium-small), Medium,
Med.L (medium-large) and Large
Effect Level: Sets the
strength of the surround effect, the level can be set in 15 steps from 1 to
Delay Time: In the matrix
mode only, the delay time can be set within the range of 0 to 300 ms
SW ATT: Reduces the
subwoofer level when using the 7.1 Channel analog input
SW On/Off: Sub output is
Dialogue Normalization: The
dialogue normalization function is activated automatically when playing Dolby
Digital program sources. Dialogue normalization is a basic function of Dolby
Digital, which automatically normalizes the dialog level (standard level) of the
signals that are recorded at different levels for different program sources,
such as DVD, DTV and other future formats that will use Dolby Digital.
CINEMA EQ (Cinema Equalizer):
The Cinema EQ function gently decreases the level of the extreme high
frequencies, compensating for overly-bright sounding motion picture soundtracks.
Select this function if the sound from the front speakers is too bright. This
function only works in the Dolby Pro Logic (including PL II and PL IIx), Dolby
Digital, DTS Surround, DTS Neo:6, and Wide Screen modes.
D.COMP (Dynamic Range Compression):
Motion picture soundtracks have tremendous dynamic range (the contrast between
very soft and very loud sounds). For listening late at night, or whenever the
maximum sound level is lower than usual, the Dynamic Range Compression allows
you to hear all of the sounds in the soundtrack (but with reduced dynamic
range). This only works when playing program sources recorded in Dolby Digital
or DTS. You can select one of the four settings: "OFF," "LOW," "MID" (middle),
or "HI" (high).
receiver has a personal memorize function that automatically memorizes the
surround modes and input modes selected for the different input sources. When
the input source is switched, the modes set for that source last time it was
used are automatically recalled. The surround parameters, tone control settings,
and playback level balance for the different output channels are memorized for
each surround mode.
are three 2-channel playback modes exclusively for music:
- Pure Direct:
plays back music with an extremely high level of sound quality. All the
video-related circuits are turned off so that music signals are reproduced
with high quality. When an analog mode is selected, the digital processing
circuits are also turned off to achieve the highest purity.
bypass the tone control circuits, and are transmitted directly, resulting in
good quality sound.
allows you to adjust the tone to achieve the desired sound.
Conversion: The AVR-2807 is equipped with a
flexible video switching system that converts video signals in an effort to only
require one video connection from receiver to TV. Unlike most other conversion
circuits, this receiver will convert analog signals from composite video,
S-Video, and component video to HDMI.
- Composite Video: can be
converted to S-Video, component video, or HDMI
- S-Video: can be converted
to composite video, component video, or HDMI
- Component Video: can be
converted to composite video, S-Video, or HDMI (480i signals only when down
24-Bit, 192 kHz D/A Converters:
uses highly accurate Analog Devices 24-bit, 192 kHz Digital-to-Analog converters
on all 8 channels. The 192kHz sampling and 24-bit word length capabilities of
the DACs allows you to play high-resolution recordings and hear the increased
clarity, detail and dynamic range of those recordings.
Auto Setup/Room EQ:
The receiver is equipped with an Auto Setup and Room Equalization function, to
achieve the most ideal sound field for your room. With the DM-S205 microphone
(supplied) placed at the listening position, the 32-point DSP automatically and
accurately analyzes, adjusts and sets the speaker configurations, delay time,
and volume level of your system. The receiver also analyzes and adjusts the
frequency response of the speakers to the room with a 9-band parametric
equalizer. You can also manually adjust the 9-band equalizer from -6dB to +6dB
in 0.5dB steps at 63Hz, 125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, 1kHz, 2kHz, 4kHz,
8kHz, and 16kHz.
The Room EQ function offers three correction curves:
- Audyssey: adjusts the
frequency response of all speakers to correct the effects of room acoustics
- Front: adjusts the
characteristics of each speaker to match the front speakers
- Flat: frequency response
of all speakers are flat
can adjust the cutoff frequency of the subwoofer output from 40Hz, 60Hz, 80Hz,
90Hz, 100Hz, 110Hz, 120Hz, 150Hz, 200Hz, or 250Hz.
The audio signal can be delayed, from 0-200ms, to match the video signal.
You can set the amount of attenuation for the audio muting circuit from -40dB or
-20dB from the present volume level.
XM Satellite Radio Ready: With
the XM Mini Tuner and Mini Tuner Home Dock, you
can listen to XM satellite on the Denon AVR-2807.
You will have over 150 commercial-free channels of music, news, sports, comedy,
talk, and entertainment to choose from - all in digital quality. The plug on the
back of the receiver is a proprietary plug, so the only antenna that will work
with this unit is included with the Mini Tuner Home Dock. A subscription to XM Radio is also required.
Note: A 50'
extension is available for the Mini Tuner Home Dock if the supplied cable is too short.
Bi-Amp Connections: Certain
loudspeakers are equipped with two sets of input terminals for bi-amplification.
The receiver's Power Amp Assign mode allows you to power bi-amp capable speakers
with two amplifier channels.
Dual Source/Dual Zone Capability:
The AVR-2807 allows you to enjoy one source in
your main listening room, while another source plays in a remote room. Depending
on how you configure the receiver, using the dual zone capability of this
receiver will require an amplifier and speakers, a set of powered speakers, or
simply a set of non-powered speakers located in a remote location. If the
receiver is set up for 7.1 surround operation, the Zone 2 RCA outputs act as
fixed-level line outputs, and there are no Zone 2 amplified (speaker-level)
outputs; in this configuration, the RCA line outputs must be connected to an
amplifier or powered speakers equipped with a volume control. If the main room
is configured for 5.1-channel surround, the Power Amp Assign function allows you
to use the two Surround Back
speaker outputs to power speakers
in your remote listening room.
Last Function Memory:
This unit is equipped with a last function memory, which stores the input and
output setting conditions as they were immediately before the power was switched
The unit is also equipped with a back-up memory. This function provides
approximately one week of memory storage when the main unit's power switch is
off and the power cord is disconnected.
On-Screen Display (OSD): An OSD can be
displayed on your television for easy system setup. The OSD is sent through all
monitor outputs (composite video, S-video, component video, and HDMI).
RC-1030 Learning Remote Control:
AVR-2807 comes with a remote
control that can operate the receiver as well as other remote control capable
Denon components. In addition, the remote is pre-programmed with control signals
for other brands of products, including CD players, DBS receivers, MiniDisc
players/recorders, VCRs, CD recorders, cable boxes, TVs, laserdisc players, DVD
players, and cassette decks.
The RC-1030 is also a
learning remote, allowing it to learn and store commands from other remotes in
The remote control is equipped with "System Call"
functions, allowing a series of remote control signals to be transmitted by
pressing a single button. Up to 10 sequential signals can be stored in each of
the 2 System Call buttons.
