The mission for our flagship receiver was simple: the ultimate reproduction
of HD audio, which creates surround sound so rich, so dense, no analog
amplifier alone can do the job properly. So we created the Hybrid Digital
Amplifier. Developed with ICEpower, the leader in digital amplifier design, this
breakthrough is at the heart of the SC-09TX. The receiver combines the best
of digital and analog technology. It is an achievement that marks a new era in
high-definition stereophonic fidelity.
