The SA-XR25 is a Panasonic's second-generation, fully-digital receiver. Since a digital receiver processes everything from input to output in the digital domain, amplification with virtually no signal degradation is possible. The result is a new dimension in sound quality. Boasting power efficiency of over 90 percent, the receivers deliver high output with minimal heat, in this case 100 watts to each of the six channels. The SA-XR25 is equipped with six channel discrete inputs to deliver the enhanced sound quality of DVD-Audio music. It decodes the DTS-ES and Dolby Digital EX surround formats, as well as Dolby Digital 5.1-channel sources and Dolby Pro Logic II, which converts sound from regular two-channel stereo sources into 5.1 channel for spacious surround sound. This model is remarkably thin and is ready to be connected to virtually any other home theater component.
