DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 and Dolby Digital EX with Power Amps for 7 Channels
High-Quality Sound Reproduction
• New High Resolution 32bit Floating Point DSP
• 96 kHz Processing Circuit
• 24 bit, 192 kHz Capability High Resolution D/A Conversion
■ Auto Setup and RoomEQ with Microphone
The AVR-886 includes an Auto Set-up function that performs
basic settings for the speakers based on frequency response
data for the speakers and the listening room that was measured
by a supplied high-performance microphone, and a Room EQ
(equalizer) function that optimizes frequency response
characteristics for the listening room.
■ 3 Sets of Component Video Inputs
The AVR-886 is equipped with 3 sets of component video inputs and 1set of monitor
outputs (all RCA terminals).
Fully Discrete, Equal Power 7 Amplifier Channels, 100 Watts Each
Front 100 W + 100 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08 % THD)
Center 100 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08 % THD)
Surround 100 W + 100 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08 % THD)
Surround Back 100 W + 100 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08 % THD)
For optimum Dolby Digital and dts reproduction, the AVR-886 features high quality, wide-
band audio amplification, providing 90 watts power output for each of the 7 main chan-
nels. A large capacity power supply includes a high current power transformer along
with discrete power output devices on all 7 amplifier channels for highest dynamic range
and superb reproduction clarity.
DENON's Basic Design for High-Quality Sound Reproduction
Power Transformer for High Power Driven
The chassis that supports the large transformer has been designed to absorb vibra-
tion, and the transformer is housed inside a highly rigid frame to secure it more solidly
to the chassis. In addition, a cushioning material has been placed around the core
of the transformer to minimize interference on the signal and enable more faithful
reproduction of the original sound.
The AVR-886 inherits these low-noise design from higher-end models not to mention the
use of short ring.
Twin Drive Rectifier
Denon's Twin Drive Rectifier design uses two rectifying diodes in
parallel to bring out the maximum potential of the large trans-
former. Since the rectifiers recharge the large block capacitors at
low impedance, they are able to supply ample current to repro-
duce deep basses as well as sudden bursts of sound from
percussion or other musical instruments.
Large Aluminum Extruded Heatsink
Denon uses a large heatsink made of extruded aluminum. It is
placed in a design that ensures mostly uniform temperatures
throughout the heatsink. This will ensures that all channels
respond with equal performance to the demands of the audio
Dual-Channel Surround Back Power Amp for 7.1 Surround
The AVR-886 is equipped with a total of 7 power amps including 2 for the Surround Back
channel speaker to give you more clearly defined sound localization at the rear for 6.1-
channel surround sources such as DTS-ES Discrete 6.1, DTS-ES Matrix 6.1, Dolby Digital
EX, and DTS-ES NEO:6.
Assignable surround back (L/R) amplifiers for front (L/R) channel bi-amping,
or for Muti-zone playback
Amplifiers initially reserved for Surround back (L/R) channels can be asigned to bi-wire
Front (L/R) channels to improve playback quality in the front for enhanced listening
enjoyment. Or the amplifiers can be assigned to Zone 2 speakers (with multi-source),
in addition to PREOUT for Zone 2.
Wide-Range Play Capability for DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD
The power amp circuits of the AVR-886 have been meticulously designed to repro-
duce the exceptionally high sound quality with wide frequency response from 10 Hz
to 100 kHz.
The sound from movie sources recorded in Dolby Digital, DTS or other formats empha-
sises high-frequency range due to a theater's front speakers being placed behind the
movie screen. If this sound is reproduced in the home theater without correction, the
high-frequency range is too strong. The AVR-886 features a Cinema Equalizer to cor-
rect these high-frequency components so that the sound is clearer and easier to lis-
ten to. (For Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic IIx, Dolby Digital EX and DTS surround
On Screen Display
The AVR-886 lets you make system settings via displays on your TV screen from the
comfort of your chair.
Personal Memory Plus, for Easy Operation
The AVR-886 includes the Personal Memory Plus function that automatically
remembers the surround mode you last used for each program source, so that you do
not need to select the mode again for that program.
Acclaimed Customisation Feature
As with all of Denon’s high-grade A/V receiver, the AVR-886 lets you adjust speaker
configuration, delay times and other parameters so that you can customize the perfor-
mance of the AVR-886 to suit your own home theater and enhance operating ease.
These customized features are then stored, for each source input and surround mode,
in Personal Memory Plus so constant readjustments are not required.
