Denon AVR-X7200W A/V Receiver

Denon AVR-X7200W

Denon announced a new flagship, $3,000 X-Series, 9.2-channel Network A/V Receiver, model AVR-X7200W, featuring ultimate build quality and unique 3D audio options for home theater. It comes with Dolby Atmos to deliver captivating, multi-dimensional sound, and additionally is upgrade-ready for Auro-3D listening format.

The new AVR-X7200W  features a powerful 9-channel amplifier with 150 watts per channel packed in a left/right-separated, symmetrical monolithic amplifier design with custom made DHCT (Denon High Current Transistors). This ultimate build-quality guarantees best-in-class sound quality with minimum interferences, astonishing clarity, power, detail, and depth. It further supports speaker setups that go beyond its 9 power amplifier stages, thanks to its 11.2 channel processing and 13.2 channel pre-outs. Its advanced audio section includes the highest resolution audio decoders like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and also offers DTS Neo:X and Audyssey DSX for advanced surround experience with additional height or wide speakers. For the ultimate in audio refinement, the AVR-X7200W features Denon’s own D.D.S.C.-HD32 circuit with renowned AL32 processing multichannel, and also has Denon Link HD connection for jitter-free transmission from a supporting Denon Blu-ray player. Discerning consumers will appreciate the fact that the new receiver features the most advanced Audyssey package including Audyssey MultEQ XT 32 (Pro ready) room calibration with Sub EQ HT and LFC.

For the ultimate in three-dimensional surround sound, the AVR-X7200W comes with the latest decoding technology Dolby Atmos out-of-the-box, and is also ready for Auro3D (online upgrade offer starts beginning of December; a fee is charged). With Dolby Atmos®, sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead. Thanks to its four DSP (Digital Sound Processing) engines, the AVR-X7200W has enough processing power to run an Audyssey-calibrated 5.1.2, 5.1.4, 7.1.2, and even a full 11 channel Dolby Atmos setup; taking advantage of 7.1.4 or 9.1.2 Dolby Atmos configurations (additional 2-channel power amplifier required).

Auro-3D creates another unique immersive surround sound experience. Thanks to a unique configuration of ‘height channels’, acoustic reflections are generated and heard naturally due to the fact that sounds originate from around as well as above the listener. Depending on the size of the room, either 1 or 2 additional layers (HEIGHT and TOP – a.k.a. “Voice of God” channel) with speakers are mounted above the existing surround layer at ear-level to produce Auro-3D’s defining ‘vertical stereo field’.

While offering the renowned Denon audio quality and unique sound processing technologies, all of this year’s new X-series AVRs come with a never-before-seen set of connectivity options. Most remarkably, all have built-in Wi-Fi to easily connect to a home network, and Bluetooth to connect mobile devices with the touch of a button. Once connected, the AVR-X7200W opens up any room to literally unlimited music sources and playback options. Users can stream their own music conveniently from Apple iDevices via AirPlay, or access their music library on DLNA® compatible devices like a network attached storage device (NAS). Moreover, users can choose from thousands of Internet Radio stations and enjoy music from Spotify Connect (where available; subscriptions required). For total convenience, 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. To keep control of all those features, there is a Denon Remote App available for iOS and Android devices. And also available is the improved Setup Assistant and Advanced Graphical User Interface which makes it very convenient even for beginners to set up the device with its amazing roster of facilities.

Denon AVR-X7200W back

With a total of 8 HDMI inputs and 3 HDMI outputs, the AVR-X7200W is ready to take over full control of literally all digital devices, such as Blu-ray players, media players, video cameras and more, at the same time. The AVR-X7200W’s advanced video processor is equipped to handle future 4K Ultra HD 50/60 Hz full rate content as well as featuring 4:4:4 Pure Color 4K sub-sampling pass-through, both features of the latest HDMI specification. It even has the ability to upconvert and transcode standard definition and high definition video sources up to 4k Ultra HD 50/60 Hz resolution for the ultimate viewing experience. As Denon does not want to compromise on the limited bandwidth and color capability of currently available HDCP2.2 implementations, the HDMI board of the AVR-X7200W will not be equipped with it from the start. In spring 2015, Denon will start offering a hardware upgrade to include full HDCP2.2 copy protection protocol on the AVR-X7200W.
