This is true whether you are starting out for the first time or are upgrading an existing system. The receiver you choose as the heart of your system should be capable of full-bandwidth power, decoding the latest surround algorithms, versatile digital processing, comprehensive connectivity and should not become obsolete in six months. Well, here it is. In addition to the built-in Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, the DTR-7.2 provides ProLogic II and DTS-ES Discrete decoding as well as the latest THX Surround EX decoding. It also provides six channels of amplification, so you can immediately enjoy the benefits of DTS-ES Discrete or THX Surround EX without having to purchase or hook up an additional amplifier.
Another important advantage , THX Select Certification, means that when other A/V receivers start to feel the strain, the DTR-7.2 kicks into high gear to match the pace of the action. The THX certification ensures that the DTR-7.2 was designed and built to deliver.
The DTR-7.2 also introduces a variety of features unheard of at its price range, including A-BUS ready capability that lets you add up to four additional, independently-controlled zones of music anywhere in your home. This is just one its many system integration features that make it a custom installation dream. Line level outputs for a second zone amplifier, an RS-232 port for use with touchscreen controllers from other manufacturers, an infrared sensor input so you can control the DTR-7.2 from another room and two assignable 12-volt triggers to activate amplifiers, dim the lights, drop a screen or close the drapes. To simplify system connections, the DTR-7.2 also features an internal Y/C separator to convert video to S-Video.
