New Home Theater Audio Equipment from Denon and Boston Acoustics

Denon and Boston Acoustics recently came by to train our Projector Experts on their new home theater audio equipment.

By the end of the training session everyone was drooling over these products.

Denon’s new home theater receivers

Denon home theater receivers

As you all probably know, A/V receivers are the backbone of any home theater setup. They power your speakers; tune your AM/FM radio stations; provide easy switching between your AV components; allow you to enjoy movies, TV shows, music and video games in mind-blowing surround sound; and let you to tailor your sound system to your ideal preferences.

They also wash your dishes and ensure your children behave on road trips. (Okay, we made those last two up.)

Denon’s new home theater receivers take it one step further. Our Denon receivers are 3D-ready and include the Audyssey MultEQ dynamic room acoustic correction system.

The Audyssey system includes a microphone you place in different parts of your home theater while the receiver “cheeps and twirps” (highly technical terms.) The sound information is sent back to the receiver, which tweaks its settings to your room specifications. The Denon folks set it up in our oddly shaped conference room and the results were really amazing.

Other features, like Dynamic Volume, help eliminate jarring volume jumps during commercials. At last, no more blaring truck advertisements!

Fun fact: “Denon” is a combination of the Japanese words for “electric” and “sound”.
