Product Feature Highlights

  • Audyssey Platinum Built-In for perfection in surround sound

  • Fully discrete, Class A/B amplification for all 7 channels (125w x 7ch)

  • Audyssey MultiEQ XT32, Sub EQ HT and Low Frequency Containment

  • 7 HDMI Inputs / 3 HDMI Outputs

Audyssey Platinum

The AVR-X4000 features Audyssey Platinum, our most robust level of Audyssey support with Audyssey MultEQ XT32, Audyssey Dynamic Volume, Audyssey Dynamic EQ, Audyssey DSX, Audyssey Sub EQ HT, Audyssey LFC, and Audyssey Pro. Audyssey MultEQ XT32 harnesses the power of sophisticated DSP processing, measures the acoustic output of the speakers and subwoofers, and generates multiple digital EQ filters with 256 times the resolution of standard MultEQ. This provides the smoothest, most natural tonal balance in virtually any room. Audyssey DSX offers the option of front wide and front height speakers which are placed to the left and right or above the main front speakers to broaden the width and/or height of the soundstage, making the audio experience more impressive, engaging, and believable. 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. Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual tailoring for dual subwoofer setups. Audyssey LFC (Low Frequency Containment) provides a full range tonal balance for late-night listening that minimizes the intrusion of deep bass content into adjacent rooms or spaces. The AVR-X4000 is also Audyssey Pro Installer ready.

Audyssey Room

Acoustic Measurement and Correction

Audyssey MultEQ XT32 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. The AVR-X4000 is also Audyssey Pro Installer ready. Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual tailoring for dual subwoofer setups. Audyssey LFC (Low Frequency Containment) processing provides a full range tonal balance for late-night listening that minimizes deep bass content from intruding into adjacent rooms or spaces.

Expanded Surround Sound

Processing

In addition to the latest high resolution decoders, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, the AVR-X4000 7.2 receiver also features Audyssey DSX, Dolby Pro Logic IIz and DTS Neo:X decoding, which lets you connect an additional pair of front height or wide speakers to dramatically expand the front soundstage, transforming your home theater room into a large venue cinema space.

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. The InstaPrevue function lets you view multiple windows for all of the connected HDMI sources, letting you pick your favorite content at the touch of a button.

IN-Command Control

Sophistication

In addition to conventional remote control, the AVR-X4000 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-X4000 via the web control function, which you can access via your PC’s web browser. Equipped with both LAN and RS-232C serial port connections, the AVR-X4000 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, and the unit features two 12V assignable trigger outputs for projection screen and motorized drapes control.

Enjoy Music

A second zone HDMI output lets others enjoy a different program in another room, and the Amp Assign function lets you use two of the amplifier channels to drive stereo speakers in the second room. By connecting a stereo amp to the AVR-X4000, you can even have a third audio source playing in another 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.

"I've got to hand it to Denon. I haven't been this impressed by a receiver in a long time. Well done. Denon hit one out of the park with the AVR-X4000."

No 11.1 surround sound??
I really like the HDMI pass through, unit works great. What I do not like is that it does not allow 11.1 surround sound. Is it possible for you to do a firmware update that will allow this? I'm using a 7 channel external amplifier but this will only allow me to drive up to 9.1 surround sound. I have 11 speakers plus my sub, and I'm using my old Denon receiver's multi channel inputs, but there is no way to set the AVR-X400 to output 11.1 surround sound. I also find it impossible to find an email link to contact customer support about this issue. You would think an email link to customer support would be easy to find. It's not. Hopefully someone from Denon will read this and help me out. Thanks.

Receiver Sweetness
After exchanging out a Sony ES, This Denon Seems to be designed and setup by Audio Gods, No delay in the zone II from my cable box because it pulls the audio from the HDMI, No 2 hours of software Updates before it works. Sound is spot on warm and full vocals, menu super easy to navigate. AND A 3RD ZONE ON BOARD!!! not to mention all digital feature work for the other zones. Could not be happier.
