The Lexicon RV-6 and RV-9 were designed to ensure that the most important components of a premium AV system deliver uncompromised performance. Superfluous connections and features were eliminated and resources focused on maintaining best-in-class audio and video signal integrity and processing, as well as best-in-class amplification on all channels, all the time, even with the most demanding program material. The video and audio stages are designed for current and upcoming technologies; HDMI2.0a with HDCP2.2 4K Ultra HD and 3D video capability are built in as well as Dolby Vision compatibility. “Lexicon has a rich history in professional digital audio processing, and is found in the vast majority of world-class recording studios,” said Jim Garrett, senior director, product strategy and planning, Harman Luxury Audio. “This Grammy-winning pedigree is evident in the RV-6, RV-9 and MC-10 with proprietary Logic7 Immersion up mixer, which allows stereo and multi-channel source material to envelop the listener with a rich and natural three-dimensional sound taking full advantage of height speakers.” The Lexicon RV-6 and RV-9 leverage the 24bit /192k Cirrus CS42528 for A/D and D/A conversion, which boasts 114dB dynamic range and -100 THD+N in and out. The analog circuitry on the input and output stages are also optimized for unequalled dynamic range, ultra-low distortion, and unmatched audio clarity Harman’s proprietary Logic7 immersion up mixer allows stereo and multi-channel content to envelop the listener with a rich and natural three-dimensional sound. Flexible configuration, Spotify Connect, and a Zone 2 with audio, 4K video, IR control, triggers, and power options add to the RV6 and RV-9 features. With 12 channels of decoding and 7 channels of amplification, independent zone 2 video and triggers, the RV-6 and RV-9 can be easily configured for a variety of systems.
