player, ensuring that the 3D effect doesn't get lost in translation. It also
recognizes signals from 3D television broadcasts.
- Audio Return Channel:HDMI
v1.4a also features Audio Return Channel functionality, which allows for
audio content from your display to be played back through the AVR-1612 via
the single HDMI cable that goes from the receiver to the display. This
eliminates the need for separate audio and video cables running from your TV
to the receiver.
- Deep Color and x.v.Color Support:
The AVR-1612 also supports Deep Color and x.v.Color content, which can
display a larger color range than standard-definition schemes. The result is
a more lifelike, vibrant picture.
With a built-in USB port, the AVR-1612 supports digital music playback from an
iPod, iPhone, iPad, or USB drive. The receiver can also be used with the Denon
Networked Control Dock (sold separately) for network streaming or docking your
iPod/iPhone. A compressed audio restorer guarantees that standard MP3 playback
