AL32 Processing Technology
AL32 Processing, a Denon proprietary analog waveform reproduction technology, supports up to 192kHz sampling rate and 32-bit expansion. The technology completely suppresses the noise associated with D/A conversion to reproduce low-level signals with optimal clarity, which will bring out all the delicate nuances in the music. AL32 Processing Multi-Channel means that the technology is applied to all channels and all input sources.
Settings & Outputs Subwoofer
Let yourself be enveloped by precise and evenly distributed bass. Equipped with up to four subwoofer outputs, this AV amplifier best reproduces low frequencies and provides better diffusion. No audible distortion or attenuation, just powerful, enveloping bass. Change the subwoofer settings to your preference, when more than two subwoofers are connected: select 'Standard' if you want evenly distributed bass performance, 'Directional' if you want more directional bass performance, best harmonized with the closest speakers to each subwoofer in the room.
Your Denon AV amplifier can function as the perfect AV pre-amplifier, with the latest in HDMI connectivity. Preamp mode provides a cleaner signal path and greater tolerance in clipping level by disconnecting the internal amplifiers. Add the flexibility of being able to selectively disconnect speaker channels so you can use the AV amplifier's built-in amplification to drive nonessential channels, resulting in a clearer signal path for channels driven by external amplification.
