Denon reveals new AV receiver lineup, supports Apple AirPlay
Monday, May 6, 2013 @ 7:45am

Denon has revealed the latest additions to its networked AV receiver lineup, designed to suit users with a range of budgets. The new INCOMMAND models also all support Apple’s lossless AirPlay wireless standard, which adds streaming support for the full range of Apple iOS devices and Macs. Three of the four new models also offer support for the new 4K Ultra HD standard.



The top of the range AVR-X4000 ($1300) offers 7.2 channels with that also features 7 discrete output stages with each channel rated at 125 watts. The AVR-X4000 also incorporates 7 HDMI inputs and 3 HDMI outputs with two for the main room and one for another room. Sound processing includes Audyssey DSX, Dolby Pro Logic IIz and a DTS Neo:X decoders. Video processing includes conversion of SD content to HD, while 1080p videos can also be upscaled to 4K Ultra HD. Three other models sit under the AVR-X4000 and include the AVR-X3000 ($900), AVR-2000 ($650) and the AVR-1000 ($450). Naturally, with the lower prices, each incorporates progressively fewer features. The AVR-X3000 retains similar audio and video decoding capabilities of the high-end model, but reduces power output to 105 watts though still supports 7.2 channels. The AVR-X2000 drops its channels down to 7.1, while also reducing output to 95 watts. The low-end AVR-X1000 supports 5.1 surround, drops output to 80 watts and loses any 4K support. [via Engadget]
