This awesome combination is guaranteed to reproduce the most demanding movie soundtracks and music with all the passion their creators intended.
Incredible processing ability
Using a completely new Cirrus Logic / Crystal chipset with the latest twin core 32-bit DSPs, Cambridge Audio has enabled full support for Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD High Resolution and the superb new Lossless Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio formats.
DTS speaker re-mapping allows the playback of DTS-HD High Resolution or Master Audio formats with encoded height information on standard 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 speaker setups.
A new video PCB with digital-domain video transcode means the 650R can also transcode analogue video inputs to HDMI for simplicity and flexibility, requiring just one HDMI cable to the TV screen.
Simple, intuitive and customised set-up
The 650R is also the first to feature Cambridge Audio Mic Controlled Auto Set-up (CAMCAS) with a supplied microphone for extremely quick and easy installation. And completing the perfect picture, LipSync audio delay means the user can simply adjust for processing delays in the source or TV.
It just sounds. out of this world!
Lets face it, you normally watch a DVD once, maybe twice but how many times have you listened to the same album? And what about those fifty favourite tracks that evoke so many memories?
Youve listened to these a thousand times and you just know how every last beat, riff and word should sound. So when you consider that your AVR is probably tasked with delivering most of your music, it only makes sense that it should be as adept at reproducing music as it is video.
But dont worry, were with you when it comes to extracting the last drop of performance from your music. Whereas some manufacturers optimise their AVRs for features and processing ability, sound quality - whether with music or movies - is paramount and at the core of everything Cambridge Audio stands for.
In fact, Cambridge Audio truly believes the new 650R to be its best sounding AV receiver ever. We guarantee it sounds just as good whether youre watching the latest Blu-ray release, engrossed in a music DVD, or simply enjoying your iPod playlists.
How can it sound quite so amazing?
Key to this claim are the 650Rs seven 100 Watt audiophile grade fully discrete amplifiers which are kept separate from the processing and input stages. Then theres a substantial power supply and an oversize low flux toroidal transformer - an expensive component we believe to be critical to a real piece of audio equipment.
