DVD is the driving force behind home theater and consumer electronics. DVD is a digital format that, up until just recently, had to have its picture converted from digital to analog before being sent to our TVs because Hollywood movie studios feared copy protection problems. Video enthusiasts protested at first and then invested in the best component video systems they could afford. In time receivers started adding component video switching but little could be done about the fact that converting the digital picture on DVD to analog caused significant loss of picture quality.

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.

Onkyo has just introduced the TX-SR701 A/V receiver, delivering 6x100 Watts of power, and THX Select performance and processing capabilities.

There is also a zone 2 pre-out that can be used in conjunction with an external amplifier.
