The company’s latest multichannel A/V Receivers and Controllers from the “Dot 1” series are no different and include next-generation features such as 4K HDBaseT support; Dolby Atmos and DTS:X formats up to 7.2.4 channels; multi-zone processing; the latest wireless technologies such as Chromecast built-in with Google Assistant voice control and DTS Play-Fi multi-room hi-fi music streaming; and hand-selected components like 32-bit SHARC DSPs. Each model also includes HDMI 8 in (1 Front), main out, and sub / Zone 2 out with support for HDCP 2.2, 4 K / 60 Hz, Dolby Vision, HDR 10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma), WCG (Wide Color Gamut), extended (sYCC601, Adobe RGB, Adobe YYC601), and BT.2020 video pass-through.
HDB-RX1 4K HDBaseT Receiver
The HDB-RX1 is certified to transmit uncompressed 4K/60p/4:4:4 video, including HDR10 and Dolby Vision compatibility, at a full 18GB per second to an existing AVR or A/V processor via new-generation 4K HDR HDBaseT LAN and HDCP 2.2-compliant HDMI output. The unit enables IR Control and RS-232 pass-through for home automation, and the HDB-RX1 carries Power Over Cable (POC) and IP Control for enhanced installation flexibility.
DRC-R1.1 11.2-Channel Network A/V Controller
With the THX Certified Ultra DRC-R1.1, no detail was overlooked. From the copper screws used to lock modular circuitry blocks to a double-skinned insulated frame, to the floating circuit boards, multiple 32-bit DSPs and DACs, the DRC-R1.1 processor was built for theater-reference sound. It includes state-of-the-art front-end technologies such as the aforementioned 4K HDBaseT support, object-based audio processing through 7.2.4 channels, and features gold-plated 11.2-channel balanced XLR audio pre-outs. As mentioned the unit has 32-bit SHARC DSPs (x3), independent differential audio DACs for Stereo Front L / R (384-kHz/32-bit AK4490, Surround (768-kHz/32-bit AK4458), and separate DACs for Zone 2 / Zone 3 (192-kHz/24-bit AK4388).
DRX-R1.1 11.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver
The DRX-R1.1 is a flagship THX Certified Select network receiver with unsurpassed quality, power at 140W per channel (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.08% THD, 2 channels driven, FTC) and all the latest 4K video support and multi-channel audio processing present in the DRC-R1.1. It too features a double-skinned and braced chassis provides rigidity for full-floating circuitry, custom shielded power supply, and shielded amplification, all of which harmonize to isolate signals from noise. The result is absolute sonic purity at earth-shaking volume through High-Current Amplifier Design featuring custom-made magnetic-flux low-hum EI power transformer.
DRX-7.1 9.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver
For film and music lovers with big rooms and high expectations, the THX Certified Select DRX-7.1 is built to impress with immensely powerful reproduction of high-resolution entertainment true to the source in every aspect. The 9-channel unit features 140W per channel at 8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.08% THD, 2 channels driven, FTC, and includes 11.2 multichannel pre-outs to support up to 7.2.4 object-based audio speaker setup through an external 2-channel amp. Again, flagship features abound in the DRX-7.1, with 4K HDBaseT and dedicated multi-zone processing for hi-fi A/V distribution as well as wireless technologies and custom integration options.
