Yamaha has just introduced the RX-Z9, the first 9-channel capable Digital Home Theater Receiver.
Features include massive 9-channel power amplification (170W x 7, 50W x
2 for a total of 1,290W) and Yamaha’s Digital ToP-ART (Total Purity
Audio Reproduction Technology). The high current amplification system
uses a symmetrical drive and full push/pull circuit configuration with
a FET input stage. The large toroidal transformer and large capacity
block chemical condenser (28,000µF) help provide a stable power supply.
The RX-Z9 decodes most formats, including Dolby Digital–EX, Dolby Pro
Logic II, DTS-ES Discrete, DTS-ES Matrix 6.1, DTS 96/24 and Neo:6.
