Denon has announced three new Network AV Receivers in the company’s X Series line, the AVR-X3300W, AVR-X2300W and AVR-X1300W. These three new units build upon Denon’s X Series AV Receiver models, now in their 4th generation.


Seven discrete amplifier channels each providing 145 watts, Dolby Atmos and it is ready for DTS:X that can create an immersive sound field around the listener no matter the number of speakers installed (free DTS:X update scheduled for later in 2016). Users can also choose between Dolby Surround and DTS Neural:X upmixers (via update) to create 3D sound from both legacy Dolby or DTS material. de_avrx1300w_e2_e1c_bk_st_001_lo

The AVR-X1300W comes with built-in Bluetooth for music streaming from a smartphone, and even Wi-Fi to easily connect to a home network. Once connected, the AVR-X1300W opens up playback options, including Apple AirPlay, network attached storage devices (NAS), Internet Radio and Spotify Connect (where available; subscriptions required). High Resolution audio files like FLAC, AIFF or DSD (up to 5.6MHz) are also supported. A front USB port can be used to connect either USB storage devices, or an iDevice to playback music and charge at the same time.

The AVR-X1300W is loaded with a host of features including compatibility with the latest HDMI 2.0a specification, as well as HDCP 2.2 on all inputs, required for 4K Ultra HD copy-protected content. In total 6 HDMI inputs, of which one is located at the front panel, are plenty enough to connect modern HDMI devices such as Blu-ray players, game consoles or set-top-boxes. The AVR further supports full rate 4K Ultra HD including full resolution 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling pass-through, HDR (High Dynamic Range) and BT.2020.


The AVR-X2300W shares the same values and features of its younger brother but the power amplifiers are 150 watts per channel With in total 8 HDMI inputs and 2 HDMI outputs, this AVR is ready to handle most likely every HDMI device ever used at home. The video processor section can upcale all HDMI sources like DVDs to 1080p or even 4k Ultra HD resolution. The AVR-X2300W is also certified by the Imaging Science Foundation for video quality, and is equipped with the full suite of ISFccc advanced video calibration controls. A more extensive array of inputs, control options and a second zone cinch pre-out make the AVR-X2300W a truly versatile AV control centre. de_avrx2300w_e2-e1c_bk_st_001_lo


With 180 watts per channel, the new AVR-X3300W is by far the strongest among the strong X Series newcomers. The video engine is another upgrade, as it can upconvert and transcode even old analogue sources to up to 4k Ultra HD 50/60 Hz resolution. The dual HDMI outputs support different program sources, so you can enjoy a surround movie in the main room and a separate stereo program with video from a different source in the second room. A 7.2ch pre-out section, an RS232 port and flexible amp assignment options will satisfy even demanding custom installers in regards to multi-zone listening and home automation. de_avrx3300w_e2-e1c_bk_st_001_lo

To keep control of all features, there is a new Denon 2016 AVR Remote App available for iOS and Android devices, and for the Kindle Fire. With the exclusive Denon Setup Assistant along with the Quick Start Guide, setting up a Denon AV Receiver is quick and easy. Audyssey MultEQ XT (even MultEQ XT32 for the AVR-X3300W) automatic room acoustic measurement and correction system matches the installed speakers to the individual room’s acoustics. Audyssey Dynamic Volume offers real-time volume adjustment, while Audyssey Dynamic EQ improves a system’s surround sound effects at low volume levels.

The AVR-X3300W will be available in August, while the AVR-X2300W and AVR-X1300W will be launched already in June.
