Denon expands X-Series line-up with two new AV receivers

Manufacturer of premium home entertainment and personal audio products, Denon, has announced two new X-Series AV receivers.

The Denon AVR-X2600H (150W per channel) and AVR-X1600H (145W per channel) deliver lifelike, visceral 7.2 surround sound experience far beyond the capability of TV audio or even traditional sound bars, providing home entertainment enthusiasts with the latest technologies to upgrade their home cinema and streaming entertainment experience.

“Denon is committed to bringing the latest technologies and best audio quality to home theatre enthusiasts while offering flexibility so they can grow with their home entertainment systems,” said Michael Greco, senior director of global brand management at Sound United.

“To that effect, we’ve added the latest Dolby and DTS 3D audio technologies and eARC so customers can up-mix traditional stereo and surround soundtracks to a 3D listening experience or virtualize Dolby Atmos or DTS:X mixes for amazing immersive audio without dedicated height channels.

“Listeners can also expect a full suite of technical capabilities, including the latest 4K video technologies, voice control, Apple AirPlay 2, and HEOS wireless multi-room music streaming.”

Denon’s new performance-tuned X-Series AV receivers provide immersive 3D audio experience, supporting the latest surround sound formats including Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization Technology, which adds virtualised height and surround effects on traditional stereo or surround content as well as Dolby Atmos content while using fewer speakers.

Dolby Atmos Height Virtualisation is used to create the sensation of sound that extends above and beyond the listener, using only loudspeakers originating at listener-level. This technology is ideal for systems without discrete height or surround speakers throughout the room such as 2.1 or 5.1, simplifying installation while delivering the excitement of 360-degree audio. Dolby Atmos Height Virtualisation Technology will be delivered via a future firmware update.
