Our take on the JVC RX-6010V

Receivers: Your ticket to sensational sound

Your receiver powers your speakers and lets you connect and select your entertainment sources. But a great receiver does a lot more — it ignites your emotions. From the passion of a favorite musical artist, to the crossfire of a super-charged movie soundtrack, to the intensity and immersion of a fast-paced video game, your receiver is the key to experiencing and enjoying it in full.

Unlimited home entertainment for limited budgets! The RX-6010V offers built-in Dolby® Digital, DTS®, and Dolby Pro Logic™ decoding, plus 100 watts x 5 channels for powerful music and home theater sound. You get plenty of digital and analog inputs for DVD, CD, VCR, TV sound, and more — hook 'em up!

Five DAP (Digital Acoustics Processor) soundfields bring your stereo sources to life. Enhanced CompuLink simplifies operation of your compatible JVC A/V gear. High-rigidity Z-chassis construction cuts down vibration and resonance for cleaner sound.

  • DTS
  • Dolby Pro Logic

  • Live Club (DAP mode): Reproduces the feeling of a live music club with a low ceiling
  • Dance Club (DAP mode): Emphasizes the low frequencies
  • Hall (DAP mode): Reproduces clear vocals and the feeling of a concert hall
  • Pavilion (DAP mode): Reproduces the spacious feeling of a pavilion with a high ceiling

Bass Management:

  • Subwoofer: You can select YES or NO. If YES is selected, you can adjust the level of the subwoofer from -10dB to +10dB in 1dB increments.
  • Front Speakers: You can select LARGE or SMALL (if the subwoofer is set to NO, you can only select LARGE front speakers)
  • Center Speaker: You can select LARGE, SMALL, or NONE (if the front speakers are set to SMALL, you cannot select LARGE for the center speaker)
  • Rear Speakers: You can select LARGE, SMALL, or NONE (if the front speakers are set to SMALL, you cannot select LARGE for the rear speakers)
  • Center Delay: Allows you to adjust the center delay setting from 0 to 5 msec in 1 msec increments
  • Rear Delay: Allows you to adjust the rear delay setting from 0 to 15 msec in 1 msec increments
  • Crossover: The channels set to SMALL are filtered with a selectable high-pass crossover. You can select a crossover point of 80Hz, 100Hz, or 120Hz.
  • LFE Attenuator: When the bass is distorted, you can lower LFE bass output by 10dB
  • Dynamic Range Compression: Allows you to select OFF, MID or MAX. The MID setting compresses the dynamic range very little, whereas the MAX setting offers full dynamic range compression. Note: Dynamic Range Compression mode is only available when specially encoded Dolby Digital signals are played.

Test Tone: A test tone feature is available to help with the process of matching the output level of the left surround, right surround and center channels to the front left and right channel level.

Auto Memory: This feature assigns and stores different sound settings for each source. You can store the subwoofer output level, input attenuator mode, tone adjustment, balance, and DSP mode settings.

Attenuator: You can attenuate an analog input signal if it is too high and causes distortion.

Compu Link: This unit has the Compu Link-4 Synchro remote control system.

Digital Input Registration: When you use any of the digital inputs, you must register which source is connected to which digital input. This only needs to be done one time, and afterwards, the unit will automatically be able to select the proper source in both digital and analog mode.
