Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master AudioTM decoding
The AVR 2600 delivers high-resolution audio to match the digital video common in Blu-ray DiscTM formats, unlocking their full potential with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master AudioTM decoding. No matter what mode or mood youre in, youll always hear playback at its finest.
Dolby volume technology
Whether youre watching your favorite television show, a Blu-ray DiscTM recording, a DVD or an MPEG-3 or -4 video file downloaded through a USB port, Dolby volume technology will maintain a consistent volume level for all of your content.
Superior Logic 7 (5.1 and 7.1) sound processing
Logic 7 technology transforms standard stereo input into 5.1- and 7.1-channel surround sound, courtesy of proprietary algorithms that makes any playlist sound spectacular. From HDMITM formats to computer-based audio delivered via USB connections, Logic 7 processing guarantees that you enjoy a superior entertainment experience.
Faroudja DCDi CinemaTM video processing
Faroudja DCDi CinemaTM video processing technology dramatically improves the quality of images by reducing video artifacting with digital or analog signals. That means fewer lines and a smoother picture, especially when theres movement across your television screen.
Four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output
With four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output, the AVR 2600 maximizes audio/video performance while drastically reducing connection confusion with your existing equipment. Simply put, its easier than ever to receive a high-definition signal from the video sources you select.
EzSet/EQTM calibration ensures the best possible audio performance from your speakers by measuring the peaks and valleys within playback frequency. In a few steps, the EzSet/EQ system automatically tailors the AVR 2600s playback to your specific room conditions.
The Bridge III docking station for iPod and iPhone (available seperately)
Thanks to The Bridge IIIP docking station, youll hear optimized digital tracks in the comfort of your own home. Simply connect The Bridge IIIP to your iPod or iPhone with a single cable and navigate through your music and video libraries courtesy of the systems high-definition graphical user interface (GUI).
Along with HDMI v.1.4A technology with 3-D capability and four HDMI inputs, the AVR 2600 also comes with high-definition component-video cables, providing yet another level of flexibility when pairing your AVR 2600 system with your existing audio products.
Compressed music tools
Using compressed music tools to improve playback quality, the AVR 2600 is a completely self-sufficient receiver designed to elevate the sound quality of your favorite songs without requiring additional audio equipment.
Preprogrammed/Learning remote control
The AVR 2600 simplifies your life with an available IR remote. With its impressive, ergonomic design, the programmable control works seamlessly with the AVR 2600 multilingual, on-screen display, guiding you through the system setup process with the greatest of ease.
Quadruple bass crossover manager
The AVR 2600 offers an advanced and versatile bass manager, allowing audiophiles to set the crossover to one of six specific frequencies for each of the four different speaker groups. In addition, the AVR 2600 automatically sets the proper matching, compatible low-pass frequency point (to the LFE output) to ensure that none of the low-frequency information is lost.
Infuse each room with the same high-definition playback by adding multiple new input sources that turn your home into multi-layer entertainment zone. Its just one more way to take advantage of the extensive capabilities the AVR 2600 offers.
High-current capability (HCC)
The 65-watt AVR 2600 home theater system features high-current capability (HCC), allowing speakers to emit sound thats both accurate and true. HCC raises overall decibel levels, making your favorite music, movies and multimedia sound better than you ever imagined.
