Jamo updates multimedia -friendly DVD receiver with HDMI

We are pleased to announce an updated version of our multimedia-capable DMR 60 DVD receiver. Now equipped with a rear-mounted HDMI output, the new DMR 61 offers crisp, vivid video quality that will truly enrich your home entertainment experience.

INDIANAPOLIS (January 8, 2007) Ż Thanks to the arrival of HD -DVD/Blu -Ray players, satellite -delivered television services and HDMI -equipped flatscreens, HDMI is now an absolute must for any all -in -one DVD system.


We are pleased to announce an updated version of our multimedia -capable DMR 60 DVD receiver. Now equipped with a rear -mounted HDMI output, the new DMR 61 offers crisp, vivid video quality that will truly enrich your home entertainment experience.

Ultra -slim, the appearance of this unit is unchanged. Finished in sleek black and silver, this receiver offers DVD/CD replay, FM/AM listening (with 40 presets) and Dolby Digital 5.1/DTS 5.1/Dolby Pro -Logic II output. With 5 x 60W of power on tap there's more than enough power to reproduce even the most dynamic of movie soundtracks.

But, there's much more. This is a device designed for the multimedia age, so you'll also find a USB (V1.1) socket for compatible memory card peripherals.

Alternatively, for even simpler replay of MP3/WMA/MPEG -4/JPEG files there's a built -in 4 -in -1 flash card reader. Just download your files onto the card from your computer, then pop it into the DMR 61. If you have a device without removeable memory you can now route audio via the DMR 61's new front -mounted line -in jack (there's also a pair of stereo audio line -in phono jacks in the rear).

A few moments of navigation through the easy -to -use onscreen menu system and you'll soon be enjoying your content. If there's no DVD in the tray, it will automatically start playing audio files from a connected USB memory stick/ MP3 player or a flash card.

Users will also note that the remote is equally simple to use Ż it's been tailored specifically for this product.

DVD+/ -R/RW, DVD+R Dual Layer, CD -R/RW, VCD, and SVCD. Xvid and DivX (3.11 -5.xx) encoded discs can all be played.

Component video output (with Progressive Scan) is available as well as RGB via Scart (for European markets), S -Video and now, of course, HDMI. A subwoofer output allows enhanced bass reproduction and a pair of digital inputs (one co -axial/one optical) adds further flexibility.

To complement the DMR 61, Jamo also offers the Aesthetic A 10 Series.

This three -model series includes the A 102 satellites, A 10 CEN center channel speaker and SUB 200 subwoofer.

The compact A 102 satellites are solid, magnetically shielded boxes that pack a mighty punch, due in no small part to the 3 -inch co -axial driver. Finished in high -gloss black (silver is optional) these are intended for placement on the wall (a wall bracket is supplied as standard).

Naturally the center speaker sports a similar drive unit configuration for optimal timbre matching.

Lastly, there's the SUB 200 subwoofer. Equipped with an 8 -inch downfiring woofer this is a bass -reflex design with both line -level and high -level inputs, automatic on/off switching and controls for level, cut -off and phase.
