DTR-8.2 7.1 Channel THX A-BUS Ready Surround EX Receiver
The DTR-8.2 is built to the same exacting performance specifications, and in fact it shares many of the specs of the DTR-9.1. The feature package of this unit can be summed up in one word; amazing. Besides the professional grade video switching - over 50MHz for HDTV and progressive DVD capabilities, the DTR-8.2 features an integral Y/C separator, multi-zone system expansion capability, RS-232 control port and the new touch-screen LCD remote. The DTR-8.2 also features THX Select certification and is outfitted with THX Surround EX, DTS-ES, Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby ProLogic II and even DTS Neo-6 decoding. Of course the DTR-8.2 features the same circuit design and construction that make the DTR-9.1 such a tremendous performer. Optimum Gain Volume Control, heavy duty power supplies, high density filtering capacitors, hand-matched components and absolute ground circuitry through the use of pure copper busses and shorting bars and high-resolution 192kHz DACs, ensure that the sound quality is nothing short of spectacular. System expansion and flexible control are two areas where the DTR-8.2 really shines. The unit offers three different methods for dual zone operation: Powered Zone 2 - using the unit's internal amps to drive speakers in another room, Line Level Out - using an external amp to drive the Second Zone, and A-BUS - a unique technology where a second source can be sent to up to 4 outboard amplifier module/keypads to drive speakers in remote locations. The unit is also equipped with an RS-232 port for connection to a whole house control system, and comes with our new Custom Home Automation Device or CHAD, a programmable, IR/RF touch-screen LCD remote, that provides comprehensive control of the receiver and the entire system. Convenience and ease of use are also strong points for the DTR-8.2. If you're looking for a home theater centerpiece with the flexibility to grow with your needs, there is basically only one choice - the DTR-8.2.
