5 Channel AV Receiver with Front Stage Surround Advance (Silver)


Precise, quality sound in your home.

The 417 is designed and built to reproduce high performance, precise 5.1 surround sound from the most popular surround sound formats. It also incorporates Sound Retriever, a technology which up-converts compressed audio to CD-quality audio – ensuring that you benefit from quality audio, regardless of the original source.

Greater flexibility in your speaker placement.

By simply placing your speakers directly beside your TV screen and activating the unique Front Stage Surround Advance feature, you can experience a virtual surround sound environment. The benefit here is that you don’t have to worry about routing speaker cables around your room; your speakers can be placed up front.

This receiver is also available in Black.
