The HTR-5660 is a high-perfomance audio/video receiver from Yamaha that offers a step-down from the company's HTR-5740 model and a step-up from the HTR-5650 model. Featuring six-channel amplification with more power than its predecessor at 85-watts per channel, this model is capable of four encoding types including DTS ES Discrete and Matrix 6.1, as well as Dolby's Digital EX and Pro Logic II technologies. Yamaha's own Total Purity Audio Reproduction Technology helps to achieve the purest possible audio, utilizing power transistors for clean sound. 32-bit decoding is available between encoding platforms, maintaining consistent high-quality output that is also applicable to 24-bit digital-to-analog conversion with field reproduction for multi-channel sources. The unit comes pre-loaded with 24 different sound program presets for a variety of multimedia environments, including tri and quad-field cinema DSP for an enhanced movie viewing experience. The programs are customizable up to a total of 44 different options, and can also be interacted with via the included remote control unit. Digitally regulated volume control allows for highly accurate volume adjustments both large and small, with an intelligent component that monitors your preferences. The 5660 also features a wide selection of front and back panel A/V inputs and outputs, including both optical and coaxial jacks that support CD, DVD, MD/CDR and DTV/CBL content. A/B switching enables multiple speaker setups to wired into the unit simultaneously, with low impedance drive capability making most standalone speakers and subwoofers functional with the receiver. In addition, an AM/FM radio tuner is included with up to 40 preset spots for grouping by genre and service, and a sleep timer allows for automatic shut-off to conserve energy.
