In addition, you can assign 2 channels of the AVR-X2000’s 7-channel amplifier to provide power for speakers located in another room.

Product Feature Highlights

  • Audyssey Silver Built-In for perfection in surround sound

  • Fully discrete, Class A/B amplification all 7 channels (95w x 7ch)

  • 1080P and 4K Ultra HD Upscaling & Pass-through

  • 7 HDMI Inputs / 1 Output

Audyssey Silver

Audyssey Silver is standard on our AVR-X1000 and AVR-X2000 and includes Audyssey MultEQ XT, Audyssey Dynamic Volume, and Audyssey Dynamic EQ. Audyssey MultEQ XT calibrates the system for up to eight different seating positions, and it uses more and higher quality filters for better results, especially in the bass region, i.e., frequencies below 200Hz. As a result, bass is more impactful and is more evenly distributed throughout the room. Audyssey Dynamic Volume senses the impending arrival of very loud sounds and automatically reduces the difference between normal and extra-loud programming. Audyssey Dynamic EQ automatically adjusts subwoofer and surround speaker levels for maximum performance at any playback volume.

Handles

Multiple Video Formats

The sophisticated video processor also provides for compatibility with legacy analog video sources, and features 3 composite video (SD) inputs, and 2 component video inputs that can accept both SD and HD video signals. These inputs are assignable as well, letting you continue to enjoy all of your favorite content for years to come. Since these sources are internally converted to digital video, you only need a single HDMI cable run to your HDTV, minimizing cable costs and installation hassle.

Sophisticated

Video Processing

The powerful video processor section features high resolution upconversion that transforms standard definition (SD) video content to high definition (HD), and provides upscaling of 1080p HD to 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160 pixels) for compatibility with the latest high resolution displays, along with 3D pass-through.

IN-Command Control

Sophistication

In addition to conventional remote control, the AVR-X2000 is equipped with a range of additional control options, including the “Denon Remote App”, which is available in iOS and Android versions, which lets you control the unit with your favorite smartphone or tablet. You can also control the AVR-X2000 via the web control function, which you can access via your PC or Mac web browser. Equipped with both LAN and RS-232C serial port connections, the AVR-X2000 is compatible with a broad range of home automation control systems from companies including AMX, Control4, Crestron, RTI, Savant and URC. The IR remote input and output jacks provide even more control options.

Audyssey Room

Acoustic Measurement and Correction

Audyssey MultEQ XT automatic room acoustic measurement and correction harnesses the power of sophisticated DSP processing, measuring the acoustic output of the speakers and subwoofers and generating multiple digital EQ filters that provide the smoothest, most natural tonal balance in virtually any room.

Compressed

Audio Restorer

Breathe new life into your favorite MP3 tracks with Denon’s Compressed Audio Restorer feature, which analyzes compressed MP3 tracks and actually restores important music detail for a higher fidelity listening experience.

Enjoy Music Two Rooms

You can configure the AVR-X2000 for a full 7.1 channel system, or you can choose to have a 5.1 channel system in the main room and connect a pair of stereo speakers that are located in another room. Enjoy thrilling surround sound in the main room while at the same time others can enjoy stereo sound from different source in the second room.

Connection

& Installation Ease

Setup is both quick and easy thanks to the Denon Setup Assistant, an intuitive on-screen graphical interface that walks you through the setup process. The newly designed rear panel features logically arranged blocks of connector groups, and includes horizontally arranged speaker binding posts with a “12 o’clock” speaker wire input orientation, and the speaker connectors can accept multiple termination types. For further ease of installation, the speaker connectors are color-coded, and the supplied color-coded speaker wire labels will ensure proper connections the very first time. The power cord is detachable, which provides additional installation flexibility. The chassis depth is only 13 inches, which allows for greater installation flexibility in tighter spaces, such as a TV cabinet.

Ethernet Connectivity

with Internet Radio, Streaming Services and AirPlay

Connect the AVR-X2000 to your home network via an Ethernet cable or an affordable WIFI adaptor or wireless Ethernet bridge and open up a whole new world of listening enjoyment. You can enjoy music and audio programs from a vast range of internet radio stations, as well as enjoying music from streaming services including SiriusXM, Spotify and Pandora (subscriptions required).

Equipped with Apple’s AirPlay function, the AVR-X2000 lets you stream your favorite tracks from your iPod touch, iPhone and iPad via your wireless home network. You can also access your favorite iTunes tracks from your computer or connect your portable device directly via the front panel USB port. The unit is also DLNA 1.5 compliant for connection to your multimedia PC and is Windows 8 / RT certified.

HDMI Outputs

For connection to a broad range of digital sources, the AVR-X2000 features 7 HDMI inputs, including 1 on the front panel that lets you quickly and conveniently connect a camcorder, game console or other HDMI-equipped device.

The HDMI functionality is further expanded with HDMI Standby Pass-through, which lets you view a source (such as a cable or satellite box) on your HDTV when the AVR-X2000 is in standby mode, which is ideal for casual viewing of news broadcasts and the like.

I’m not an audiophile expert. I cannot afford the best of the best, or even the better of the better. Like most I suppose, I rely on other “experts”, and read their reviews before shelling out a precious “reasonable” allowance. First, there’s a ton of subjectivity going into an opinion on a set of speakers or an amplifier. Ultimately you have to sample a lot and learn to trust what YOU like. It’s analogous to wine tasting or looking at art. Some fundamentals approach the objective I suppose. A paper tweeter (Bose) is not going to reproduce as pleasantly as a silk tweeter (Polk). Advertised ratings are never equal. A speaker’s wood cabinet will influence the tone of the sound; but even plastic soundsticks (Harmon Kardon) can reproduce sound nicely. For context, I had been using a 100 WPC Pioneer amp from the mid 90’s when 5.1 became all the rage. It was loud. It was a workhorse and survived many DJ gigs over the years. At home it powered mid-range Polk speakers and some Advents from the 70’s. It was modestly “decent,” I guess. Over the years I’d bring home “higher end” receivers but couldn’t discern enough of a difference to warrant spending $600.00 + to replace. This Denon changed that. The separation of frequencies was dramatically improved and the overall much clearer (not muddled together). I read some critique of it being too “bright” but I like those high frequencies and didn’t find that to be a problem. In terms of “loudness” (if that’s important to you) it was a very slow gain as I turned the volume knob, but finally it plays plenty loud and I haven’t needed to find its outer limits. I had little interest in the 7.1, as I’m more interested in music as opposed to “home theatre,” but the change was so dynamic we found ourselves looking for old DVDs just to experience the sound. I hope it lasts as long as that Pioneer did. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I feel a new compulsion to upgrade the speakers.
