The AVR-X2200W and AVR-X1200W are expected to be available in July 2015 at authorized Denon retailers.

The AVR-X1200W 7.2ch Network A/V Receiver already brings technology from Denon’s top-of-the-line A/V models and offers an incredible value. Seven channels each providing 80 watts in a discrete amplifier design ensure that the sound reaching the speakers is powerful, controlled and full of subtle detail. The AVR-X1200W is equipped with Dolby Atmos decoding and Dolby Surround Upmixing to further expand the home theater experience. These deliver captivating multi-dimensional sound through height or overhead speakers, or easy to install Dolby Atmos enabled upfiring speakers up to a 5.1.2 configuration. Moreover it is ready for DTS:X and DTS Neural:X upmixer that can create an immersive sound field around the listener, no matter the number of speakers installed (visit www.denon.com/dtsx for more information).
While offering the renowned Denon audio quality, the AVR-X1200W comes with built-in Bluetooth® for music streaming from a smartphone, and Wi-Fi to easily connect to a home network. Once connected, the AVR-X1200W opens up any room to literally unlimited music sources and playback options, including Apple AirPlay®, network attached storage devices (NAS), Internet Radio and Spotify Connect® (where available; subscriptions required). High-Resolution audio files like FLAC, AIFF or DSD are also supported and played back in impeccable sonic quality. To easily keep control of all features, the new Denon AVR Remote App will be launched for iOS and Android™ devices.
The AVR-X1200W comes with a host of advanced video features including compatibility with the latest HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0a specifications on all 6 HDMI inputs. With 4K60Hz Ultra HD video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and BT.2020 passthrough support on every input, the AVR-1200W is ready for the next generation of Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes and other 4K Ultra HD sources.
AVR-X2200W: The video specialist for demanding yet price-conscious movie lovers ($999.00)
Sharing the same core values and features of the AVR-X1200W, the new AVR-X2200W has a power amplifier with 95 watts per channel for even more drive and elevated audio performance. With 8 HDMI 2.0a inputs and 2 HDMI outputs, this AVR is ready to handle most HDMI devices. Moreover, it features a powerful video processor section to up-scale and transcode standard definition and high definition video sources (both analog and digital inputs signals) up to 4k Ultra HD resolution. A more extensive array of inputs, control options, and a second zone pre-out make the AVR-X2200W a truly versatile and advanced A/V receiver for the price.
Setting up a Denon A/V Receiver is quick and easy with the exclusive Denon setup assistant and quick guide. Audyssey MultEQ® XT automatic room acoustic measurement and correction system matches the installed speakers to the individual room’s acoustics, for the smoothest, most natural tonal balance. Audyssey Dynamic Volume offers real-time volume adjustment, while Audyssey Dynamic EQ improves a system's surround sound effects at low volume levels. This whole package offers a hassle-free setup, easy operation and optimized listening experience at the same time.
Along with a powerful set of next-generation features, the new X-Series models come with a unique Denon Eco mode. It provides the ability to reduce overall power consumption and features an on-screen Eco Meter that lets users see the power consumption reduction effect if desired. The Auto Eco mode automatically switches between normal and Eco modes, depending on the volume level chosen.
