The DRA-697CIHD receiver will shine as the core to your high end Hi-Fi stereo multi-room audio system. Equipped with many new features including HD Radio, it can handle almost any configuration combination. Its two source three zone capability allows you to run multiple sources to multiple areas at the same time with pure clean sound. With the HD tuner as a second tuner source, regular AM/FM can be listened to in one zone and HD Radio can be listened to in another zone. Being 4 ohms stable, it can handle the most demanding speakers, yet deliver smooth fidelity. Custom integration is no problem either as this enhance receiver has all the connections an installer needs to integrate to third party control systems.
Signal Level Divided Construction (S.L.D.C.) The Signal Level Divided Construction (S.L.D.C.) chassis is used in the audio circuit to ensure that delicate musical signals from such advanced digital sources as DVD and CD are faithfully amplified and transmitted to the speakers.
Multi-Room Entertainment System Denons Multi Source function lets you select different audio sources for listening in different locations (some models may have volume adjust only for zone 2). Different sources can thus be enjoyed in the main room (MAIN) and sub-room(s) – ZONE 2, ZONE 3 or ZONE 4 – simultaneously (number of zones is model dependent).
XM-ready and HD Radio XM Radio ready receivers offer enhanced features over traditional radio receivers as their source is broadcast from a digital satellite (An optional plug and play XM antenna and service contract is required to active the XM Radio feature). This receiver enables the reception of high-quality digital AM and FM stations. Broadcast simultaneously with traditional analog signals, HD Radio signals provide crystal-clear CD-quality sound, program information (e.g. artist, song title, station, etc.), and multiple channels of programming
