Equal Power Amp Design w Discrete Circuitry: The Denon AVR-E200 is equipped with a
5 channel power amplifier rated at 75-watts (into 8-ohms, at 20-20kHz, with
0.08% THD, driving 2 channels) that reproduces high-fidelity sound in surround mode
with equal quality and power for all channels, true to the original sound. The
power amplifier circuit adopts a discrete-circuit configuration that achieves
high-quality surround sound reproduction. To faithfully reproduce the
original surround sound, each of the Denon AVRE-200's five channels are equipped
with its own high-current power amp of equal power. Since these power
amps also use discrete circuits configured with parts strictly selected for
their contribution to high sound quality, rather than with low-cost integrated
circuits (ICs), the surround sound playback is of impeccably high quality.
24-bit/192-kHz DACs: This receiver is equipped with 24-bit/192-kHz DACs for all channels to decode and playback
high-resolution recordings with less jitter and clearer sound.
32-Bit Processing DSP: The Denon AVR-E200 is equipped with a
Cirrus Logic 32-bit DSP for powerful and highly accurate surround
Multi-Channel Decoding Formats: The Denon AVR-E200 AV
receiver supports the following multi-channel (Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro
Logic) decoding formats.
Note: Dolby Digital and DTS listening modes can only be
selected if your audio source is connected to the AV receiver via a digital
audio connection (HDMI, optical, or coaxial). Even though the AV receiver
will decode 7.1channel surround sound (via HDMI), it will only output 5.1ch
surround, because it lacks Surround Back channel speaker outputs.
Other Listening Modes: You can also choose from the one of
the following Listening Modes.
- Stereo Playback: Sound is output from the front left
and right speakers, as well as the powered subwoofer. If multichannel
signals are input, they are mixed down to 2-channel audio. The tone settings
can be adjusted.
- Virtual Surround: Enjoy surround effects using only the front
speakers or set of headphones.
- Multichannel Stereo: Left and right stereo channels are
distributed to all the speakers so that stereo sound can be heard from all
directions at any listening position.
- Direct Mode: The Denon AVR-E200 offers a
Direct Listening Mode which bypass the receiver's tone & DSP processing for
higher sound quality performance. Direct Mode provides playback of 2ch or
Multichannel audio in its original form, without any surround or tone
Surround Parameters: You can adjust the following surround
- Dolby Pro Logic II Music Settings: While listening in
the Dolby Pro Logic II Music format, there are three further enhancements
you can adjust:
- Panorama: Broadens the front stereo image to the
surround speakers to provide a wraparound effect, especially effective
when there is limited output from the surround channels, panorama can be
turned on/off in the menu.
- Dimension: Allows you to move the sound field
forward or backward.
- Center Width: Allows you to adjust the width of the
- Center Image: In the Neo:6 Music mode, the Center Image
feature adjusts the output of the left and right channels relative to the
center channel, allowing you to make the center channel more or less
dominant as needed. This improves the image of the center channel,
especially when the listener is off-center. Adjustment varies from 5
(nothing subtracted from the L/R channels) to 0 (L/R channel output is cut
Audio Enhancements: The Denon AVR-E200 receiver provides various audio
enhancements to deliver a high-quality listening experience every time.
- Tone Settings: You can independently adjust the system's
overall Bass and Treble settings from -6 to +6 dB.
- Restorer: Compressed audio formats such as MP3, WMA (Windows Media Audio), and MPEG-4 AAC
reduce the amount of data by eliminating signal components that are hard for the
human ear to hear. The Restorer function generates the signals eliminated upon
compression, restoring the sound to conditions near those of the original sound
before compression. It also corrects the sense of volume of the bass to obtain
richer sound with compressed audio signals.
- Dynamic Range Compression (DRC): 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, Compressing the dynamic range allows you to hear all of the
sounds in the soundtrack with reduced dynamic range. DRC works when playing
program sources recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS.
- Night Mode: The Night Mode optimizes sound for late night listening.
This function can be set to Low, Mid, High, or Off.
Speaker Setup: You can setup your speaker system manually using
the receiver's on-screen menu.
- Speaker Configuration:
Select speaker configuration and size (large/small/none), as well as
- Distance: Set distance (0-60') from
listening position to speakers.
- Channel Level: Set the volume (+/-12dB) of the
test tone to be the same when it is output from each speaker.
- Crossover Frequency: Set high-pass crossover
(40/60/80/90/100/110/120/150/200/250Hz) for the front, center, and surround
- Bass Setting: Set
the low-pass crossover (80/90/100/110/120/150/200/250Hz) for the connected
powered subwoofer and SW Mode(LFE/LFE+Main).
Volume Settings: The AVR-E200 offers the following volume
