Full Description

DPR1005 Digital Path AV Receiver 7x70W **B-GRADE**

Harman Kardon’s breakthrough Digital Path Receiver technology, of which the DPR 1005 is the second generation, keeps signals in the digital domain from the input to the output. Along with the newly designed PWM digital amplifier, this not only reduces signal degradation caused by digital-to-analog conversion stages; the increased efficiency makes it possible to reduce the DPR’s size and weight without sacrificing performance.

The DPR 1005 is designed to serve as the hub of your home entertainment system, providing a variety of listening options. When playing movies or other programming from digital formats such as DVD or HDTV, the DPR decodes Dolby* Digital, Dolby Digital EX,DTS® and DTS-ES.® Two-channel stereo and matrix surround sources benefit from the new Pro Logic IIx technology and DTS Neo:6.® A Harman Kardon exclusive in receivers is the latest version of Logic 7® to create a wider, more enveloping sound field and more defined surround channel positioning, regardless of the type of source material. Additional processing options include MP3 decoding when connected to a compatible computer and HDCD® for enhanced CD playback.

Advanced technology is also at work even when only two speakers are used. Dolby Virtual Speaker modes and Harman International’s proprietary VMAx® are both available to create enveloping sound fields from the front left and right speakers, while Dolby Headphone circuitry creates an amazing sense of openness with headphones.

Along with the many listening options, the DPR 1005 offers numerous settings that let you customize the system. A Quadruple Crossover bass management system configures each speaker group for a different crossover setting, while the assignable, wide bandwidth component video inputs may be linked to any video source. To further enhance the viewing experience with digital video sources or advanced digital video displays,the DPR 1005’s A/V Sync Delay feature allows you to compensate for the loss of lip sync common in many video processing systems by delaying the audio signal independently for each input. An advanced version of Harman Kardon’s patented EzSet remote completes the package, making it easier than ever to set system output levels and to program the remote to operate virtually any program source.

The DPR 1005’s multizone options and a standard Zone II remote control make it possible to listen to a separate source in one room while the main home theater uses a different source. Thanks to assignable rear surround channel amplifiers, you may create a basic remote listening zone without any additional equipment. The unit’s Multiroom outputs may also be used to feed an optional, external power amplifier and volume control. For one-wire multiroom connectivity, the DPR 1005 is A-BUS Ready,® requiring only a single Category 5/5e cable and an optional remote module to power remote speakers while controlling volume and enabling full control over the program source and compatible IR-controlled devices.

Combining state-of-the-art circuitry, digital technology and proven performance with an elegant design that is compatible with the latest source components and video displays, the DPR 1005 represents the culmination of Harman Kardon’s 50-year history of delivering the finest sonic performance.
