Denon, a world renowned producer of top class audio solutions, have this week announced the upcoming availability of seven new AV receivers. Unveiled at the recently held Sound United European Dealer Conference in Spain, the new products include five which are Dolby Atmos and DTS:X compatible, along with two new entry-level Bluetooth models.
The five Atmos and DTS:X compatible receivers are named the AVR-X1500H, the AVR-X2500H, the AVR-X3500H, the AVR-X4500H and the AVC-X6500H. The first three of those models are seven channel alternatives and are expected to be available this summer. The AVR-X4500H is a nine channel receiver and will follow in September, whilst the AVC-X6500H has 11 channels and is expected later in the year.
Amazon Alexa compatibility will be available for all models from the AVR-X1500H upwards, whilst models from the X3500H up will also offer eARC with a firmware update. All network connectable models have a phono input, as well as HEOS multi-room capabilities.
Denon’s two new entry-level Bluetooth receiver models, meanwhile, are named the AVR-X250BT and the AVR-X550BT. They are described by Denon as being the ‘perfect first step for home cinema starters’ and each come with a built-in microphone to make installation and calibration that bit simpler.
The slightly more expensive AVR-X550BT boasts full 4K HDR compatibility with Dolby Vision, 60Hz full-rate pass through as well as Bluetooth wireless audio streaming. The AVR-X250BT, meanwhile, has one rather than two subwoofers and does not support Dolby Vision but does offer the same 130w per channel as the higher end model.
