It is also compatible with Dolby Vision and even supports the new HLG broadcast format, adding a picture of incredible brightness and naturalness. the AVR-X3500H uses high-end AK4458VN, a shielded 600-watt transformer is installed in the power system, and Sanken 2SD2560 / 2SB1647 complementary pairs are used in the terminal stages - a new generation of bipolar transistors with expanded passband.
