    Product description
    Product Information
    Stylish, uncomplicated, or convenient probably aren't the first words that come to mind when you think of most surround sound receivers. But this can be said about Kenwood. With technology like the KAM-1 Audio Amplifier Circuitry, which generates more power with much less heat, Kenwood continues to garner a reputation for being an innovative audio specialty company. With the VR405, enjoy Dolby Digital Surround, one of the most advanced surround sound formats on the market today. Plus, get Dolby Pro Logic, the most popular surround sound system available, used on hundreds of broadcast TV shows and on virtually every movie on video release since the early 1980's. And, with 80 watts per channel in both surround and stereo modes, there's more than enough power to satisfy both the movie and music lover inside. Top it all off with features you'd expect on more expensive units, like Auto Select, which chooses the correct digital format for you based on the input signal, Kenwood delivers more than you expect. But that's not surprising for a company with over forty years of experience in high fidelity.Dolby Digital (AC-3) Decoder allows you to experience the thrills of today's stunning Hollywood soundtracks right in your family room. By decoding five discrete audio channels, plus a separate subwoofer channel for dynamic low bass performance, Dolby Digital delivers crisp dialogue, breathtaking movement across the soundstage, and thunderous special effects. Digital AM/FM Stereo Tuner processes FM and AM radio broadcasts digitally, locking in on the signal for less drift and reduced distortion. It also allows for simple storage of station frequencies in convenient presets. Digital Signal Format Auto Detection (Auto Select) detects the format of the incoming digital data stream, automatically activating the proper surround decoding mode. The system automatically switches between different surround modes when changing digital sources or software formats. DSP Logic Surround Sound, Kenwood's proprietary circuitry, combines the effect of a digitally-recreated acoustic environment with decoded Dolby Pro Logic surround sound. It also allows adjustments for the size and wall hardness of the simulated environment, as well as the amount of digital effect that is combined with the original decoded sound. Dolby 3 Stereo decodes 2-channel Dolby Surround-encoded soundtracks into 3 discrete channels (left, center, right), allowing more accurate placement of sounds across the front than conventional 2-channel stereo. It is great for environments where rear speakers just can't be placed or installed. Audio Digital Signal Processing (DSP) recreates different sonic environments, simulating the acoustics of locations like arenas, churches, and clubs. Playing music through a DSP mode creates a more vivid, life-like listening experience. DSP delivers sounds sculpted to recreate the reflections and reverberations that make live performances so satisfying. Simulated Surround Sound Simulated surround systems create a phantom center channel, expand the front left and right channels and place virtual surround speakers around you, simulating the effects of a multichannel system. Bass + Treble Controls allow you to adjust the bass (lower) and treble (higher) frequencies of the music to your own individual listening tastes. At low volumes, the loudness adjustment boosts the low (bass) and high (treble) frequencies in the music to make it sound more dynamic and natural to the human ear. When reproducing sound through a two- or three- front speaker system, a product equipped with the Virtual 3D Surround (Virtual Dolby ) system generates amazingly rich and convincing virtual surround sound. The Dolby Digital, MPEG2 or Dolby Pro Logic surround channel is processed by a 'virtualizer' DSP to create a realistic surround effect from just the front speakers. So, when rear speakers are an obstacle in the living room, Virtual 3D Surround offers the consumer a perfect ...

    my vr 405?

    I can beat that one guys. I have the same receiver, and it came with a remote. but since my "friend" barrowed it for a weekend a few years back the remote only works about 40% of the time. between that and the sub out going passive on me I'm seeking a new head unit. I still have a sub hooked to it, but it sure does look funny with a cord out of the headphone jack running across the top of the tv over to the subwoofer!

    I agree

    I agree with you Rob. Good receiver, but it sucks not having a remote for it. Has a good sound and easy to set up.

    Decent receiver, but has remote issues.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    The remote must be a common problem with these. My remote also only works when it feels like it. Sometimes a tap on the top of the receiver will temporarily get the remote working again.

    I love this receiver even more now that I fixed the remote issue

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    The remote conreol issue is a case of two solder points for the IR LED on the receiver board . There is a site that walks you through the repair .http://www.moerk.org/kenwood/
