Behind the simple facade of the THX® Ultra2™ certified DTA-70.1 lies more than enough amplification muscle to power even the most demanding home theater, with 9 channels offering 150 Watts each. Enjoy diamond-sharp precision, whatever the volume.
A standard integrated A/V receiver has the dual task of both processing and amplifying audio signals, and is therefore susceptible to noise interference from digital circuitry. As a dedicated power amp with all-analog circuitry, the DTA-70.1 suffers no such interference. When partnered with a high-quality pre-pro, the DTA-70.1 offers all the benefits of pure analog amplification: a warm, musical, and full-bodied audio performance.
When a home theater component receives THX certification, it is your guarantee that it will accurately present movies the way they were mixed by the filmmaker in the studio. In the case of THX Ultra2 certification—the ultimate benchmark for home audio performance—a power amplifier must offer high-quality, high-output performance for multi-channel playback in large rooms. Among the strict criteria that THX uses for judging the quality of a power amplifier are measurements of continuous power output, distortion levels, and heat generation.
