7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD Network A/V Receiver with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
Fully loaded with the very latest audio and video technologies, the AVR-X2300W delivers incredibly immersive surround sound, optimised via extensive sound tuning – not to mention plenty of amplifier power. It has Dolby Atmos decoding and processing, for the same revolutionary 3D surround sound found in premium movie theatres and – via a future firmware update – will be able to decode DTS:X soundtracks, for complete three-dimensional surround compatibility.
For high-resolution video to match this immersive sound, and to ensure it’s future-proof, AVR-X2300W’s advanced video section is fully compatible with the latest HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all eight of its HDMI inputs. With 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 21:9 video, 3D, and BT.2020 pass-through support, the AVR-X2300W is ready for the next generation of Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes and other 4K Ultra HD sources. Advanced video processing provides for 4K Ultra HD full rate, and can upscale the digital SD and HD video to 4K UHD, while the AVR-X2300W is also HDCP 2.2 compliant, a requirement for 4K Ultra HD copy-protected content.
The powerful amplifier section features discrete high current output devices on all seven channels, with each of identical design and delivering 95 watts (8 ohms, 0.08%THD, 20Hz~20kHz). Meanwhile, the high-current design gives the AVR-X2300W has the ability to drive lower impedance 4 ohm speakers on all channels, and multiroom capability means you can enjoy different sources in two different rooms at the same time.
Full wireless connectivity is provided (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth), with dual antennas to ensure robust signal transmission and reception. You can stream your favorite music through AirPlay, Spotify Connect or from local network storage drives, while high resolution audio formats are fully supported from USB storage or network drives for incredible fidelity.
And to keep all this potential under control, the new “Denon 2016 AVR Remote” app can control the receiver from a smartphone or tablet. It’s available from the Apple app store, Google Play, and the Amazon appstore.
