The Denon AVR1610 5.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver with 1080p HDMI Connectivity - Featuring Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio
The AVR-1610 is a versatile A/V surround receiver with a 5.1-channel amplifier that supports DolbyTrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding. And, the AVR-1610 is fully equipped with Denon's proven features for high quality sound, such as Compressed Audio Restorer, Direct Mechanical Ground Construction and Minimum Signal Paths. It also features Dolby Pro Logic IIz, a technology that adds a vertical dimension at the front for a more exciting surround sound experience.
Includes three HDMI inputs and two HD-compatible component inputs
Last, but not least, the high-performance AVR-1610 includes Audyssey MultEQ, Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume for optimum tonal balance, with no volume jump due to commercial interruptions. Superior Sound at an Optimum Price
Affordability and high performance are the hallmarks of the AVR-1610 home theater receiver, which features the latest high resolution audio decoders, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. As well, the AVR-1610 is one of the first to include Dolby’s new Pro Logic IIz decoding, which provides front channel height effects, to dramatically increase the front soundstage for the ultimate surround sound experience.
With three HDMI inputs and two HD-compatible component inputs, the AVR-1610 features analog-to-digital HDMI video conversion, allowing a single HDMI cable run to your HDTV, simplifying connections and minimizing cable costs at the same time. Top audio fidelity is assured with the Audyssey MultEQ room acoustic measurement and correction system, which analyzes the speakers and the listening room at up to six measurement points (microphone included) and automatically corrects the response for the smoothest, most natural tonal balance. Audyssey Dynamic Volume and Dynamic EQ ensure rich tonal quality at any volume level, with no annoying volume jumps at commercial interruptions. You can also connect and control your iPod/touch or iPhone using one of Denon’s available iPod/iPhone docks, which provides on-screen artist, album and song information.
Robust Power Source for Each Block

To produce a clear, stable power circuit that prevents unwanted noise from affecting the sound, the AVR-1610 has a dedicated CPU transformer that is separate from the audio and video circuitry. The AVR-1610 is endowed with a powerful rectifier circuit with 10,000 block capacitors and a bridge diode of 8A capacity, surpassing typical models in this price range, to supply stable current with negligible noise. Analog to HDMI Up-Conversion
Analog video input signals (composite, S-Video component) are converted to digital video signals and transmitted to the HDMI output port. Digital video signals are sent to the HDMI output even when multiple HDMI devices such as a video camera or a game console are connected to the AVR-1610. One HDMI cable is all that is needed to connect the AVR-1610 to a TV or monitor. You can also use the On-Screen Display to check the AVR-1610's status. Dolby Pro Logic IIz Processing
Dolby Pro Logic IIz introduces a new dimension to home theater entertainment through the addition of a pair of front height channels. Compatible with stereo, 5.1 or 7.1 content, Dolby Pro Logic IIz provides enhanced spaciousness, depth and dimension to movies, concert video and video game playback while maintaining the full integrity of the source mix. (Dolby Pro Logic IIz playback requires a separate 2-channel amplifier.)
Minimum Signal Path for Clear Audio and Video Signal
Top audio fidelity is assured with the Audyssey MultEQ
room acoustic measurement and correction system
The "simple and straight" design concept has been thoroughly implemented in the signal paths to contribute to immaculately clean audio and video playback. Signal paths are as short as possibly to keep signal degradation in the audio and the video circuitry to an absolute minimum. Direct Mechanical Ground Construction
Vibration-resistant construction has been reviewed to thoroughly suppress the adverse influence of vibration on sound quality. The power transformers, a source of vibration, have been securely mounted on the highly rigid bottom chassis. Direct mounting of cast-iron feet to the radiator in near proximity to each other serves to suppress mutual vibration with the power transformers and other sources of vibration. Audyssey Dynamic Volume for Real-Time Volume Adjustment
Audyssey Dynamic Volume constantly monitors the sound sources and adjusts the volume to the optimum level for the particular source being heard without sacrificing dynamic range. The AVR-1610 is also equipped with Audyssey MultiEQ which measures the acoustic characteristics of the room to obtain the optimum acoustic effects, and Dynamic ED which reproduces the high and low range with the optimum acoustic effect during low volume levels. Dynamic Volume combines these two functions to achieve maximum performance.
