High Power, 7 Channels, and Full Support for DTS-ES and Multi-zone Set-up

Fully Discrete, Equal Power Seven Amplifier Channels
Front.................. 105 W + 105 W (8 ohms, 20Hz - 20kHz, 0.05 % THD)
Center................ 105 W (8 ohms, 20Hz - 20kHz, 0.05 % THD)
Surround............ 105 W + 105 W (8 ohms, 20Hz - 20kHz, 0.05 % THD)
Surround back... 105 W + 105 W (8 ohms, 20Hz - 20kHz, 0.05 % THD)
The AVR-3801 features an equal power 7-channel amplifier section, with identical
amplifier design on all 7 channels, with high current discrete output devices on all
channels. Each of the 7 amplifier channels is rated at 105 watts, into 8 ohms, from
20 Hz - 20 kHz with no more than 0.05% THD.
DDSC-Digital, for High-quality Sound Reproduction
Featuring the Analog Devices SHARC 32-bit floating point DSP processor,
DENON’s DDSC-D circuitry faithfully recreates all the nuances of the original
performance. Compared to ordinary 24-bit fixed point DSP processors, the SHARC
32-bit floating point DSP processor features greatly increased computational
dynamic range for superior reproduction of stereo and multi-channel digital program
DENON’s latest surround technology faithfully recreates the surround
sound produced at the dubbing stage.
1. DTS (Digital Theater System)
1) Featuring DTS-ES Extended Surround Discrete 6.1 Decoding
The AVR-3801 is equipped with the DTS-ES (true discrete) 6.1 decoder, developed
by DTS to provide dramatically improved surround sound panoramic reproduction
and superior surround sound localization.
Like DTS 5.1-channel sound, the sound from the Surround Back channel of
DTS-ES is also provided in a discrete configuration. The addition of a Surround
Back channel to the 5.1-channel sound enables more faithful reproduction of the
sound originally designed by film and music producers.
When a 6.1-channel DTS-ES discrete recording is played, the AVR-3801
automatically detects the signal and plays the source in 6.1 discrete mode.
2) Supports DTS-ES Extended Surround Matrix 6.1 Decoding
ES Matrix processing, developed by DTS, recreates the original 6.1 channel
soundfield by extracting the Surround Back information from the encoded
Surround Left and Surround Right channels, and is superior to generic “logic”
decoding as the ES Matrix function utilizes the professional DTS ES decoding
algorithm as found in DTS ES-equipped movie theaters.
3) DTS Neo:6 Surround Decoding
Featuring the newest DTS matrix processing technology, the DTS Neo:6 function
provides up to 6.1 channel surround sound from conventional stereo sources, and
can be used with virtually any 2 channel stereo source, analog or digital, such as
CD, tape, FM, TV, stereo VCR, etc. Two modes are provided: Neo:6 Cinema is
optimized for surround encoded stereo movie soundtracks, while Neo:6 Music
mode is optimized for superior surround sound with stereo music sources.


A/V Surround Receiver


The AVR-3801 is a high-performance A/V surround receiver supporting DTS-ES with 105 watts of power with equal response to
each of 7 channels. A 32-bit floating point DSP forms the heart of surround playback, performing high-speed processing on a
level normally found in higher-end A/V components. DENON has harnessed its world-renowned audio technology to fully support
DTS-ES, one of the features of which is to produce a sound that envelopes the listener and moves in all directions.
The AVR-3801 also provides a multi-zone function that lets you enjoy a different entertainment source in another room while
other people are using the AVR-3801 in the main room.
This versatile, easy-to-operate A/V receiver with superior sound quality could well be the component that meets your home
entertainment requirements.
