The AVR20 features the efficient class AB amplification for a level of transparency that delivers the most captivating sound. Audiophile listening experiences are optimised with full 16-channel Dirac calibration on board as well as simple streaming with a mobile device using the native app of choice via Apple AirPlay2 or Google Chromecast.
How does it work?
One reason the AVR20 performs so well is the advancement of «object-based» surround sound formats like Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, which place sound effects in space around you with pinpoint accuracy.
The AVR20 excels at decoding and processing these object-based soundtracks. You’ll hear the movie’s score and special effects above, behind, in front of, and beside you — just like you would in an actual theater.
This receiver sends 110 watts per channel to up to seven connected speakers — enough to drive most stand-mounted or floor-standing speakers.
If you’re designing a large surround sound system, you’ll want to take advantage of the generous preamp outputs on the AVR20’s rear panel. You can feed signal — up to 11.2 channels — to optional external power amps without the need for a separate home theater preamp/processor.
The AVR20 includes Dirac Live®, one of the industry’s best room correction platforms. Once you download the Dirac software to your Windows® or Mac® laptop, and connect the supplied microphone, you can take precise acoustic measurements of your room.
Then Dirac creates a customized correction curve that fine-tunes the output of your speakers and subwoofers based on the unique sonic characteristics of your space.
The resulting sound is clear, smooth, and ultra-detailed, with tighter bass and more impactful dynamics than before.
