Panasonic's SA-XR700 AV Receiver. A Pure, Clear Sound to Match the HD Images
An AV receiver for the HD age must be able to amplify digital source signals containing a massive amount of information without degrading them, and produce sounds that match the HD images. In addition to reproducing sounds, however, it is more important than ever that the AV receiver have sufficient AV selector capabilities for outputting the input images free of degradation. The ease with which the user can control its advanced performance is also a performance benchmark. The SA-XR700 satisfies all of these needs. The SA-XR700 receives in their original form the 7.1-channel digital audio signals sent by HDMI cable from the DMP-BD10, digitally amplifies them without degradation, and generates more than enough power to cleanly drive the speakers.
The unit's advanced audio features include triple amp drive, which allows up to three amps to drive each of two front speaker channels. Exclusive to Panasonic, this drive system makes optimal use of the receiver's multiple amps to provide a superior sound even from a two-channel audio source. The SA-XR700 doesn't stop there. It also excels at receiving the 1080p full-HD video signals sent by HDMI cable from the DMP-BD10, and outputting them in their original digital form, free of degradation, over a second HDMI cable to the TV. The SA-XR700 adds convenient operation too. HDAVI Control lets you operate all system components at the same time by pressing one button on the remote control. And Auto Speaker Setup makes it extremely easy to make the optimal speaker settings. Combining superb audio and video performance with easy operation, the SA-XR700 is the perfect building block for creating a home cinema system that will satisfy even the serious audio enthusiast
