The 5.1 receiver is the most common and popular surround sound receiver for home theaters. This type of home receiver gets its name from its support for five full-frequency audio channels – left, right, center, left surround, right surround – and one dedicated deep-bass channel. Together with high quality speakers, a 5.1 receiver can provide you a richly enjoyable audio experience from your music, movies, games, and televised sporting events. (For an even more immersive surround sound, at a higher cost, check into 7.2 receivers.)
The main things to look for when choosing a 5.1 receiver are versatility and ease of use. Denon's new AVR-1713 5.1 channel receiver works with nearly any type of audio source, while making your use of the system simple and fun.
A 5.1 Receiver that Does it All
Denon is one of the world's leading makers of premium home audio components, digital music systems, and headphones. With the AVR-1713 5.1 receiver, we've built an audio video system ideally suited to today's dynamic digital media.
One of the first things to look for in a 5.1 receiver is ample HDMI connectivity. HDMI is rapidly becoming the interface of choice for high-definition multimedia devices, including cable and satellite boxes, DVD and Blu-ray players, game consoles, portable media devices, and more. The Denon AVR-1713 is a versatile HDMI 5.1 receiver, supporting six different HDMI inputs along with one HDMI output.
Network connectivity is another important aspect of 5.1 receiver versatility. The AVR-1713 supports an ethernet connection to your home network, enabling you to play streaming music services like SiriusXM internet radio and Pandora. You can also stream music files stored on your PC.
Denon's AVR line of audio video receivers are also some of the most Apple-friendly receivers on the market. The AVR-1713 5.1 receiver has front-side HDMI and USB connectors so you can easily connect your iPod®, iPhone®, or iPad®, and the receiver also supports Apple AirPlay so you can wirelessly stream your iTunes library to the receiver from any iOS device or from a Mac or PC.
The 5.1 Receiver Made Easy
All the functionality in the world won't do you any good if your 5.1 receiver is a chore to use. That's why Denon went to lengths to design a system that's effortless to work with. For example:
- The graphical Setup Assistant guides you quickly and painlessly through the initial system setup.
- For day to day operation or adjustments, a GUI displays on your TV screen with large lettering and clear options.
- The system lets you pre-set volume levels and surround modes for the sources you use most often, and then choose among those pre-sets with a press of a button.
- Unlike the typical over-crowded, hard-to-decipher audio-video remote, the AVR-1713's remote is clearly labeled and simple to use.
