Audyssey MultEQ for Simple Set-up and Room Calibration
Optimize your audio experience with Audyssey MultEQ, MultEQ Editor app, Dynamic Volume and Dynamic EQ for a seamless setup of your listening environment.
With the supplied measurement microphone, MultEQ analyzes each speaker's output (including the subwoofer) and generates precision digital filters that optimize each channel for the correct frequency and time domain response. Use Audyssey Dynamic EQ to deliver clear dialogue and wide-band response even at reduced volume levels, or Audyssey Dynamic Volume to avoid shocks and normalize volume when content switches between commercials, announcements and TV programs. The MultEQ Editor app (available for purchase) allows you to customize the sound more precisely to the specific problems in your room and tailor the sound to your personal preferences.
Dual Subwoofer Outputs
Supports dual subwoofers for even, low-frequency bass response within your listening environment. Enjoy accurate bass with no audible peaks or dips no matter where you place your subwoofer.
Multi-source / Multi-room
Enjoy 5.2 channel surround sound in your home theater and simultaneously play stereo sound from another source in a separate room. Simply connect a pair of speakers to the multi-room amplified outputs or hook up an additional stereo amp and speakers to the Zone 2 pre-outs.
Smart TV Connectivity
Easily control the receiver with your Smart TV remote via the HDMI CEC functionality associated with your Smart TV. Simply set “HDMI Control” to ON in your receiver, then set “Smart Menu” to ON and begin controlling the NR1609 with your TV remote. The Smart Menu home screen gives you quick access to source and surround mode selections, the AVR's setup menu and four Smart Selects.
Simple Smart Select Functions
Four Smart Select function buttons on the included remote control store your preferred setup — including input, volume and Audyssey configuration — for particular sources. With the push of a button, the receiver perfectly configures for any source, from Blu-ray to TV set-top box, to your favourite Internet radio station and more.
