The Lexicon RV-5 Digital AV Receiver is a landmark product for Lexicon and represents several firsts for the brand, offering capabilities previously only available in the flagship MC-12 HD. The Lexicon RV-5 also breaks new ground with several features not currently available in other Lexicon products - all at a fraction of the price. At its heart, the Lexicon RV-5 is a multi-faceted audio and video preamplifier with built-in processing. Married to that is a high-current, 7-channel power amplifier capable of driving a wide array of loudspeakers and a built-in FM/AM tuner. In addition, the RV-5 can accommodate a pair of HDMI source devices and can connect directly to a PC via USB, enabling the control and playback of streaming audio files. With the optional dock accessory, iPod owners can even connect and play their iPod through the Lexicon RV-5.
Drawing from Lexicon's background and expertise, the Lexicon RV-5 receiver features the latest version of Lexicon's critically acclaimed Logic 7® decoding. The calling card of all Lexicon processors, Logic 7 has been widely praised for its ability to greatly enhance the listening experience of any type of source material - whether it is music, film, TV, or even video games. Using Logic 7 with your system means that your music sounds more natural - more like you'd hear it at a live event; movies are more compelling, drawing you deeper into the illusion of being there; and video games that put you right in the middle of the action. There's very little that Logic 7 can't improve, and it's just one more reason why Lexicon products are considered to be the best in the industry.
The Lexicon RV-5 features an automated procedure for use in speaker set-up, which also performs system equalization. Unlike most equalization systems that simply knock down the peaks in the response, the Lexicon RV-5 calibrates the system more intelligently - compensating for frequency response aberrations, varied speaker performance and balancing the entire system for the best overall results. In addition, the RV-5 is capable of storing different calibrations, so up to three different listening positions can be recalled at the touch of a button. The end result is a system that optimises the sound quality where it counts the most - at your seat!
The Lexicon RV-5 Digital AV Receiver is the first Lexicon product to feature integrated Faroudja® video processing technology. With this superior video capability, the RV-5 can take any incoming video format and up-convert it to HDMI output, so a single HDMI cable can be utilized between the Lexicon RV-5 and the video display. The RV-5 can also scale the video to 720p or 1080i output resolution for improved video performance from standard definition sources. In addition, the Lexicon RV-5 has two menu pages, per input, devoted solely to advanced user-adjustable video processing features such as Faroudja's DCDi®, designed to smooth out the jagged edges caused when video is de-interlaced; film mode detection, which automatically identifies film sources and restores the proper frame sequence; and noise reduction to minimize the noise often contained within analogue video signals; as well as basics such as brightness, sharpness, and contrast.
The remote control, included with the Lexicon RV-5, is a full-featured universal controller, designed to run your whole home theatre system. The remote control contains an extensive library of pre-programmed infrared codes so it can replace virtually any remote control. This powerful remote also has the ability to learn commands from other remote controls, as well as a suite of built-in customizable features. Coupled with the RF receiver option, you'll have the power to control your home theatre system - from virtually anywhere in your home. This is particularly useful in installations where the RV-5 is hidden out of sight or for users who already have a control system for the home theatre and want to use the RV-5 remote control from another room.
The Lexicon RV-5 provides several other useful features including an RS-232 port for use with bi-directional control systems as well as an IR input jack for IR based control systems. And to keep pace with today's rapidly changing technology; the RV-5 has two new features never-before offered in a Lexicon product. You can now listen to the music on your PC with all of the power and performance of the RV-5, using a USB connection. And with the optional dock accessory, you can enter a new world of listening enjoyment through the combination of the storage capacity and playback flexibility of an iPod with the sonic power of the RV-5. The connected iPod can even be controlled seamlessly from the front panel, remote control or RS-232 port. Since the RV-5 front panel and on-screen displays keep you informed of what is happening, you don't even need to see the iPod to control it.
A flexible menu structure, audio and video processing, automated calibration and EQ, in-depth customization, multimedia playback features… the RV-5 represents a new age of audio and video processing equipment from Lexicon. We invite you to experience the RV-5 for yourself.
