DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 and Dolby Digital EX with Power Amps for 7 Channels
High-Quality Surround Sound Reproduction High Resolution 32bit Floating Point DSP 96 kHz Processing Circuit 3 Sets of Component Video Inputs 3 Sets of S-Video Switching Fully Discrete, Equal Power 7 Amplifier Channels, 75 Watts Each Front 75 W + 75 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08 % THD) Center 75 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08 % THD) Surround 75 W + 75 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08 % THD) Surround Back 75 W + 75 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08 % THD) For optimum Dolby Digital and DTS reproduction, the AVR-1506 features high quality, wideband audio amplification, providing 75 watts power output for each of the 7 main channels. A large capacity power supply includes a high current power transformer along with discrete power output devices on all 7 amplifier channels for highest dynamic range and superb reproduction clarity. DENON's Basic Design for High-Quality Sound Reproduction Power Transformer for High Power Driven The chassis that supports the large transformer has been designed to absorb vibration, and the transformer is housed inside a highly rigid frame to secure it more solidly to the chassis. In addition, a cushioning material has been placed around the core of the transformer to minimize interference on the signal and enable more faithful reproduction of the original sound. The AVR-1506 inherits these low-noise design from higher-end models not to mention the use of short ring. Twin Drive Rectifier DENON's Twin Drive Rectifier design uses two rectifying diodes in parallel to bring out the maximum potential of the large transformer. Since the rectifiers recharge the large block capacitors at low impedance, they are able to supply ample current to reproduce deep basses as well as sudden bursts of sound from percussion or other musical instruments.
Wide-Range Play Capability for DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD The power amp circuits of the AVR-1506 have been meticulously designed to reproduce the exceptionally high sound quality with wide frequency response from 10 Hz to 100 kHz. Dual Channel Surround Back Power Amp for 7.1 Surround The AVR-1506 is equipped with a total of 7 power amps including 2 for the Surround Back channel speaker to give you more clearly defined sound localization at the rear for 6.1-channel surround sources such as DTS-ES Discrete 6.1, DTS-ES Matrix 6.1, Dolby Digital EX, and DTS-ES NEO:6. Cinema Equalizer The sound from movie sources recorded in Dolby Digital, DTS or other formats emphasizes high-frequency range due to a theaters front speakers being placed behind the movie screen. If this sound is reproduced in the home theater without correction, the high-frequency range is too strong. The AVR-1506 features a Cinema Equalizer to correct these high-frequency components so that the sound is clearer and easier to listen to. (For Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Digital EX and DTS surround modes) Assignable surround back (L/R) amplifiers for Multi-zone playback Amplifiers initially reserved for Surround back (L/R) channels can be assigned to Zone 2 speakers. Personal Memory Plus, for Easy Operation The AVR-1506 includes the Personal Memory Plus function that automatically remembers the surround mode you last used for each program source, so that you do not need to select the mode again for that program. Acclaimed Customization Feature As with all of DENONs high-grade A/V receiver, the AVR-1506 lets you adjust parameters so that you can customize the performance of the AVR-1506 to suit your own home theater and enhance operating ease. The adjustments are easy to make via a dialog format on the fluorescent display on the front panel. These customized features are then stored, for each source input and surround mode, in Personal Memory Plus so constant readjustments are not required. Multi-Function Preset Memory Remote Controller with Glo-keys DENON's Latest Surround Technology Faithfully Recreates the Surround Sound Produced at the Dubbing Stage. DTS 96/24 Decoding for DVD-Video DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 and Matrix 6.1 DTS NEO:6 Dolby Digital EX Dolby Pro Logic IIx
Large Aluminum Extruded Heatsink DENON uses large heatsink made of extruded aluminum. They have been placed in a design that ensures mostly uniform temperatures throughout the heatsink so that the output transistors for all channels can be driven under uniform conditions. This in turn ensures that all channels respond with equal performance to the demands of the audio signals.
5 Channel/ 7 Channel Stereo Mode DENON's popular 7 Channel Stereo mode transforms your favorite 2-channel sources such as CD, tape, stereo radio and stereo video sources into exciting surround sound, free of delay effects and unnatural artifacts, from all 7 speakers. This 7 Channel Stereo mode was originally developed by DENON to enhance music lovers' enjoyment with home theater ambience. DENON DSP Surround Modes Add Listening Excitement Put yourself in the middle of your favorite concert hall and music environments with DENON's DSP acoustic environment simulation modes. These DSP modes add spacious surround sound enhancements to your favorite music and video sources, and include these distinctly different sounding effects: 1. 5 / 7 Channel Stereo 2.

2 Speaker impedance
When speaker systems A and B are used separately, speakers with an impedance of 6 to 16 /ohms can be connected for use as front speakers. Be careful when using two pairs of front speakers (A + B) at the same time, since speakers with an impedance of 12 to 16 /ohms in this case must be used. Speakers with an impedance of 6 to 16 /ohms can be connected for use as center and surround and surround back speakers. The protector circuit may be activated if the unit is operated for long periods of time at high volumes when speakers with an impedance lower than the specified impedance are connected.
Turn clockwise to tighten, then insert the banana plug.
This unit is equipped with a high-speed protection circuit. The purpose of this circuit is to protect the speakers under circumstances such as when the output of the power amplifier is inadvertently short-circuited and a large current flows, when the temperature surrounding the unit becomes unusually high, or when the unit is used at high output over a long period which results in an extreme temperature rise. When the protection circuit is activated, the speaker output is cut off and the power supply indicator flashes. Should this occur, please follow these steps: be sure to switch off the power of this unit, check whether there are any faults with the wiring of the speaker cables or input cables, and wait for the unit to cool down if it is very hot. Improve the ventilation condition around the unit and switch the power back on.

When adjusting the level of an active subwoofer system, you may also need to adjust the subwoofers own volume control. When you adjust the channel levels while in the system setup channel level mode, the channel level adjustments made will affect all surround modes. Consider this mode a master channel level adjustment mode. After you have completed the system setup channel level adjustments, you can then activate the individual surround modes and adjust channel levels that will be remembered for each of those modes. Then, whenever you activate a particular surround sound mode, your preferred channel level adjustments for just that mode will be recalled. Check the instructions for adjusting channel levels within each surround mode ( page 29).
2 Adjusting the test tone
Before playing with the surround function, be sure to use the test tones to adjust the playback level from the different speakers. This adjustment can be performed with the system setup or from the remote control unit, as described below. Adjusting with the remote control unit using the test tones is only possible in the Auto mode and only effective in the STANDARD (DOLBY/DTS SURROUND) modes. The adjusted levels for the different modes are automatically stored in the memory.
The volume can be adjusted within the range of 70 to 0 to 18 dB, in steps of 1 dB. However, when the channel level is set as described ( page 29), if the volume for any channel is set at +1 dB or greater, the volume cannot be adjusted up to 18 dB. (In this case the maximum volume is adjusted to 18 dB (Maximum value of channel level).)

Surround back speakers
Other types of audio: These signals are designed to recreate a 360 sound field using three to five speakers. A 6.1-channel system is a conventional 5.1-channel system to which the surround back (SB) channel has been added. This makes it easy to achieve sound positioned directly behind the listener, something that was previously difficult with sources designed for conventional multi surround speakers. In addition, the acoustic image extending between the sides and the rear is narrowed, thus greatly improving the expression of the surround signals for sounds moving from the sides to the back and from the front to the point directly behind the listening position.
Change of positioning and acoustic image with 5.1-channel systems
2 Types of multi-channel signals
Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic, DTS, high definition 3-1 signals (Japan MUSE Hi-Vision audio), DVD-Audio, Super Audio CD, MPEG multi-channel audio, etc. Source here does not refer to the type of signal (format) but the recorded content. Sources can be divided into two major categories.
2 Types of sources
Movie audio: Signals created to be played in movie theaters. In general sound is recorded to be played in movie theaters equipped with multiple surround speakers, regardless of the format (Dolby Digital, DTS, etc.).
Movie theater sound field
In this case the speakers should surround the listener from all sides to create a uniform sound field from 360. Ideally the surround speakers should function as point sound sources in the same way as the front speakers. These two types of sources thus have different properties, and different speaker settings, particularly for the surround speakers, are required in order to achieve the ideal sound.

Multiple surround speakers (For 6.1-channel system)
In this case it is important to achieve the same sense of expansion as in a movie theater with the surround channels. To do so, in some cases the number of surround speakers is increased (to four or eight) or speakers with bipolar or dipolar properties are used. SL : Surround L channel SR : Surround R channel SB : Surround back channel (1 speaker or 2 speakers)
Movement of acoustic image from SR to SB to SL
Additional Information With this set, speaker(s) for 1 or 2 channels are required to achieve a 6.1-channel system (DTS-ES, etc.). Adding these speakers, however, increases the surround effect not only with sources recorded in 6.1 channels but also with conventional 2- to 5.1-channel sources. Furthermore, all the DENON original surround modes ( page 26) are compatible with 7.1-channel playback, so you can enjoy 7.1-channel sound with any signal source.

w Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II is a new multi-channel playback format developed by Dolby Laboratories using feedback logic steering technology and offering improvements over conventional Dolby Pro Logic circuits. Dolby Pro Logic II can be used to decode not only sources recorded in Dolby Surround ( ) but also regular stereo sources into five channels (front left, front right, center, surround left and surround right) to achieve surround sound.
Digital discrete processing Dolby Digital encoding / decoding
Analog matrix processing Dolby Surround
High frequency playback limit of surround channel
Additional Information Whereas with conventional Dolby Pro Logic the surround channel playback frequency band was limited, Dolby Pro Logic II offers a wider band range (20 Hz to 20 kHz or greater). In addition, the surround channels were monaural (the surround left and right channels were the same) with previous Dolby Pro Logic, but with Dolby Pro Logic II they are played as stereo signals. Various parameters can be set according to the type of source and the contents, so it is possible to achieve optimum decoding ( page 43). Additional Information
 DTS Digital Surround
Digital Theater Surround (also called simply DTS) is a multichannel digital signal format developed by Digital Theater Systems. DTS offers the same 5.1 playback channels as Dolby Digital (front left, front right, center, surround left and surround right) as well as the stereo 2-channel mode. The signals for the different channels are fully independent, eliminating the risk of deterioration of sound quality due to interference between signals, crosstalk, etc. DTS features a relatively higher bit rate as compared to Dolby Digital (1234 kbps for CDs and LDs, 1536 kbps for DVDs) so it operates with a relatively low compression rate. Because of this the amount of data is great, and when DTS playback is used in movie theaters, a separate CD-ROM synchronized with the film is played. With LDs and DVDs, there is of course no need for an extra disc; the pictures and sound can be recorded simultaneously on the same disc, so the discs can be handled in the same way as discs with other formats. There are also music CDs recorded in DTS. These CDs include 5.1-channel surround signals (compared to two channels on current CDs). They do not include picture data, but they offer surround playback on CD players that are equipped with digital outputs (PCM type digital output required). DTS surround track playback offers the same intricate, grand sound as in a movie theater, right in your own listening room.
