Denon AVR2802 Integrated Amplifier



DESCRIPTION

Denon AVR-2802 Digital Surround A/V receiver is a remarkable solution that has been engineered to provide superb surround-sound listening with home theater sources such as DVD, as well as providing outstanding high-fidelity reproduction of your favorite music sources. It features Dolby Pro Logic II decoding with Cinema and Music Modes and DTS Extended Surround Discrete 6.1 decoding. There are 9 analog inputs including built-in AM/FM tuner. Power amplifier assign function lets you assign 2 of the 6 amplifier's channels to drive second-zone speakers directly. Programmable/learning remote features TV, VCR, DVD codes from other manufacturers. It also boasts backlighting main function keys.
Denon's sterling reputation among home-theater cognoscenti is based on the superlative sound and build quality of its products. This example provest the teory. The 2802 is easily in the top rank of receivers that I have heard. About the design, outside it is a simple and beautifull champagne colour aluminium polished panel. Inside is a real beauty... a massive power transformer right behind the faceplate. This receiver's innards are jam-packed with circuit boards and quality parts that wouldn't be out of place in a high-end component.

CONDITION

Perfect condition, no visual marks, 100% technicly working

SOUND

Sound quality is amazing, clear, rich in details. The Men in Black DVD gave the 2802 plenty of opportunity to show off. Bass was rock solid and powerful--the Denon's 120 watts per channel felt distinctly more substantial than other receivers with similar power ratings. During the tunnel sequence where Tommy Lee Jones's and Will Smith's cruiser-cum-rocket-car blasts off, the Denon's prodigious output slammed me back into our BarcaLoungers with a vengeance.
This days you can buy such amp for little bit less than 100, that is a bargain for such a beauty and a beast.
