You can enjoy the enhanced sound quality of these high-resolution audio codecs from the USB input on the front panel or from network connected devices. For optimized sound, this receiver also uses a Burr-Brown 192 kHz/24-bit DAC.
USB Digital Connection for iPod and iPhone on the Front Panel
A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod and iPhone, which also charges the iOS device when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod and iPhone is transmitted directly to the receiver, there is no signal loss or interference. In addition, you can use the receiver’s remote control unit to operate the iPod and iPhone for basic playback control.
Gapless playback ensures that there are no pauses between audio files, providing music with no interruptions. This is ideal for listening to classical music or live albums.
ToP-ART Sound Quality Design and High Quality Parts
The internal design utilizes simple, direct transmission of the signals to help ensure optimum separation and elimination of noise and distortion for pure sound reproduction. This includes dual independent power supplies for the two sound sources (analog and digital) as well as original ToP-ART (Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology) and Art Base chassis construction to fully protect audio signals from noise and vibration.
Pure Direct Mode
Engaging the Pure Direct switch causes the audio signal to bypass the control circuits for bass, treble, balance and the back buffer amp. This is designed to improve sound quality while maintaining full output capacity.
Digital Audio Inputs for TV or Blu-ray Disc Players
The R-N602 is equipped for digital audio inputs with both optical and coaxial terminals. The optical is for receiving audio from a TV and the coaxial for receiving audio from a Blu-ray Disc player.
ECO Mode and Auto Power Standby
The R-N602 has an ECO mode that reduces power consumption by approximately 20% compared to traditional designs, and an Auto Power Standby function that you can set to turn the power off after two, four, eight or 12 hours.
