Denon has launched the AVR-3300, the latest in its comprehensive range of AV amplifiers. The AVR-3300 offers Dolby Digital and DTS (Digital Theatre Systems) decoding with movie and music surround, widening the scope of Denon's high end cinema amplifiers. The new Analogue Devices SHARC 32-bit chip is at the core of the machine's processor block. Developed in close collaboration with Denon's own engineers, each processor has a 50 MIPS computing speed, bringing substantial improvement to the audio quality of multi-channel sources. The amplifier is also prepared for future formats with eight-channel external inputs and eight pre-amp outputs, providing a full upgrade path for Dolby EX, et al. The pre-amp outs can be switched to provide simple multi-room capacity if required.
