Denon Debuts 4 New IN-Command Home Theater Receivers
The AVR-X1000, AVR-X2000, AVR-X3000 and AVR-X4000 all have networking features.
Denon just debuted a quartet of new home theater AV receivers for its IN-Command lineup. The new receivers are the AVR-X1000, the AVR-X2000, the AVR-X3000 and the AVR-X4000.
All four of the new models offer some type of network streaming, including Apple AirPlay. This will allow users to stream audio from any connected iOS device, as well as iTunes running on a Mac or PC. Other common features include Audyssey MultEQ XT, new HDMI video select functionality, and Control4 certification.
At $499, the AVR-X1000 is the least expensive of the lot. This 5.1 receiver boasts 80 watts per channel and support for 1080p and 3D pass-through. Other perks include Audyssey Dynamic EQ, Audyssey Dynamic Volume, and Denon’s proprietary Compressed Audio Restorer feature.
The AVR-X2000 delivers a nice bump for users interested in adding a 4K TV or a 7.1 surround system. The unit can also be set up for 5.1 sound, making those two extra channels available for use in a second room. Other features on the $699 component include 95 watts and 192kHz/24-bit D/A converters for each channel, Audyssey Dynamic EQ and Audyssey Dynamic Volume.
Next is the AVR-X3000, which adds a second sub option and 105 watts per channel. The 7.2 receiver has support for 3D, 4K upscaling, Audyssey DSX and DTS Neo:X, 192kHz/24-bit D/A converters and that Compressed Audio Restorer feature. Denon has priced this model at $999.
The last in the new lineup is AVR-X4000 7.2-channel receiver. This unit packs in 125 per channel, as well as all of the goodies mentioned above, including 4K Ultra HD upscaling. Other features include multiroom options, processing via Audyssey DSX and DTS Neo:X, and the option to expand your setup to 9.2 channels using a separate power amp. It also has Audyssey MultEQ XT32 and Audyssey Sub EQ HT Dual subwoofer EQ calibration, seven HDMI inputs, three HDMI outputs, and an MSRP of $1,299.
