Denon Unveils New 8K Receivers for 2022 Beginning at $399


Denon has unveiled a brand new line of 8K receivers for 2022 which embody extra next-gen HDMI inputs and an up to date, HD graphical person interface. Consoles such because the Xbox Sequence X and the PlayStation 5 are anticipated to have the ability to output 8K content material sooner or later.

The vary contains two entry-level 5.2-channel receivers — the AVR-S570BT ($399) and AVR-X580BT (value TBA), which provide 70-watt-per-channel amplification — plus 5 Dolby Atmos receivers. These step-up receivers function compatibility with Dolby Atmos, DTS:X/IMAX Enhanced and Auro 3D, in addition to Denon’s HEOS streaming platform.

In relation to the trade-off between value and efficiency, of most curiosity is the AVR-S970H ($899). That is the follow-up to final 12 months’s S960H, and it additionally contains 90W of energy per channel plus three 8K inputs (up from one).

The $1,599 Denon AVR-X3800H


Whereas the entire receivers embody calibration routines, the highest three will embody the superior Dirac Dwell setup, beginning with the brand new AVR-X3800H ($1,699). It gives 9.4 channels of amplification at 105W every.

The AVR-A1H ($6,499) is the corporate’s new flagship and boasts 15 channels of amplification, Denon’s “strongest transformer,” fastidiously chosen components and a high-rigidity building.

The 2 remaining receivers are as follows:

Denon AVR-X4800H 

  • $2,499
  • 9.4-channel AV receiver, 
  • 125W per channel
  • Dirac Dwell upgradability with a future software program replace.

Denon AVR-X2800H 

  • $1,199: 
  • 7.2-channel AV receiver 
  • 95W per channel. 

Denon has an extended historical past of manufacturing high-quality parts, and I would not count on something much less of the brand new vary. The improve to a greater high quality person interface specifically is a welcome change, particularly as their low-res show has been one of many largest drawbacks of earlier merchandise. I stay up for testing the brand new fashions as quickly as they turn out to be out there, particularly in opposition to the present frontrunners, the Yamaha RX-V6A and the Onkyo TX-RZ50. 

The AVR-X3800H and AVR-S570BT can be found now, whereas the opposite fashions are listed as “coming quickly.” Representatives for Denon didn’t reply instantly to CNET’s request for extra info.
