Denon DRA-397 overview

  • 1Description

The DRA-397 AM/FM Stereo Receiver from Denon offers 80W of power per channel (at 8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08% THD). The DRA-397 delivers solid, reliable audio performance even when driving both A and B speaker systems at the same time. The DRA-397 provides a pre out terminal that lets you connect another amp so that you can enjoy the same source in sub-room 1 that you have in the main room.

The DRA-397 AM/FM Stereo Receiver includes FM stations that can be searched by the tuner and automatically stored in the preset memory up to 56 stations. It allows you to select a video source, and then select an alternate audio input source, ideal for simulcasting, as well as watching TV sports programs while listening to radio commentary.

High-Quality Power Amplifier
With 80W of power per channel (at 8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08% THD), the DRA-397 delivers solid, reliable audio performance even when driving both A and B speaker systems at the same time
Signal Level Divided Construction Chassis Design
The circuit handling low-level signals has been divided into separate blocks to ensure that influences from these signals on each other are held to an absolute minimum. This new chassis design, known as the Signal Level Divided Construction (SLDC), preserves the purity of the signal, allowing it to be reproduced with much greater fidelity and clarity
Pre Out Function
The DRA-397 provides a pre out terminal that lets you connect another amp so that you can enjoy the same source in sub-room 1 that you have in the main room. The versatile A-B speaker switching feature lets you listen to music in a second sub-room by simply selecting speaker system B. The volume from the pre out terminals is linked to the DRA-397's master volume control
Video Terminals
Stereo video sources, such as hi-fi VCR, stereo TV, and DVD, can all be easily connected to the DRA-397's DVD/VDP, VCR and Video Aux terminals
Video Select Function
Allows you to select a video source, and then select an alternate audio input source, ideal for simulcasting, as well as watching TV sports programs while listening to radio commentary
Auto Preset Memory
FM stations can be searched by the tuner, and automatically stored in the preset memory up to 56 stations, ideal for locales with many FM stations
Sophisticated Tuning Circuit Design
Thanks to the PLL circuit design, reception drift is a thing of the past. The DRA-397 also has a 4-pole varactor diode in its front end to guarantee accurate input of station frequencies
