  • newegg 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.
  • newegg 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).
  • newegg XM-Ready 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.
  • newegg Made For iPod The Made for iPod mark signifies that this product has been designed to work with iPod devices either through docking stations or connection cables.
