The TX-NR905 is the worlds first A/V receiver to incorporate HQV Reon-VX video processing. HQV Reon-VX will scale all video signals to 1080p without the visible inconsistencies found in less competent scalers. It also provides remarkable support for standard and high-definition deinterlacing, for filtering of jaggies and artifacts, and for the reduction of random "mosquito" and codec noise. HQV Reon-VX enables color region enhancement and the rendering of more than one billion colors. THX Ultra2 Certification for a Better Class of Home Theater
Ultra2 certification means that the TX-NR905 can easily handle the requirements of a home theater where the viewing distance from screen to seat is greater than 12 feet and the room volume is greater than 3000 cubic feet. Among its technologies, the Advanced Speaker Array (ASA) digitally reconfigures surround speakers for three listening modes: movies, music and gaming. You also benefit from Boundary Gain Compensation (BGC), which realizes a truer, more accurate bass response. THX Ultra2 certification is a powerful endorsement of the receivers amplifying abilities.
