Jamo didn’t put Blu-ray into its new DVD player, but they did make it multipurpose machine. The DMR 70 is actually a DVD receiver, meaning it can pump out five-channel power and play your DVDs in a single package.
With a total of 325 watts possible, the DMR 70 uses a Class D amp to bring out the best (and then some!) from today’s movie soundtracks. Adding the Jamo SUB 200 subwoofer will bump the power up to 525 watts.
Other features for the DMR 70 include support for Dolby Digital, DTS 5.1 and Dolby Pro-Logic, as well as DivX Ultra, Xvid, WMA, SVCD, MP3 and JPG formats. Also, even though there’s no Blu-ray, the unit does claim to upscale to 720p or 1080i via an HDMI output.
Standing just 2 inches tall, the DMR 70 is slim enough to slip into any A/V cabinet. The DMR 70 is available now via select dealers and distributors for $449.
