At first glance, with its handsomely sculpted, hand-brushed, anodized-aluminum front panel, you'll notice that the DTR5.1 stands out. But its true beauty lies in its superior sound quality and configuration flexibility. What makes it special? First of all, it shares many of the DTR-7.1's design strengths, such as Wide Range Amplifier Technology (WRAT) to maximize signal accuracy and deliver higher instantaneous current, high-purity copper ground plates to enable the amp to respond more quickly to dynamic demands, audiophile-grade Fine Gold electrolytic-coupling capacitors to help maintain signal purity, the latest 96 kHz/24-bit DACs for all channels to deliver the highest possible fidelity and bandwidth from high-resolution sources, top-notch discrete output devices that run cooler and more stable to keep your sound cleaner under high-volume conditions, a reinforced chassis stamped from a single 1.6 millimeter solid-steel sheet to steadfastly resist vibration, a massive 12-pound shielded transformer to help drive high-quality low-impedance speaker systems, high-grade extruded aluminum heat sinks to efficiently dissipate heat and extend the life of your component, gold-plated connections to resist corrosion and deliver the cleanest signal-transfer possible, a detachable heavy-gauge IEC power cord with low-resistance copper strands to enhance power-stability...the list goes on. The DTR-5.1 also comes with 8 digital signal processing (DSP) modes for movies and music, reflecting its DSP capability to dramatically increase the sense of size as well as the shape of your acoustic environment. Plus, it has the ability to auto-detect the format of an incoming digital audio signal, be it Dolby Digital, Pro Logic, DTS or stereo, and automatically switch to the appropriate playback mode - so you can just hit a button, sit back and enjoy the show.
