Denon’s IN-Command and E-Series Home Theater Receivers: New Names But the Same “Denon Difference”—With Added Features

Jul 30, 2013

Kleinburg, Ontario (July 31, 2013)—Earlier this year Denon® Electronics, a premier manufacturer of high-quality home and personal audio products, introduced two new series of home theater receivers: the E-Series A/V receivers and the IN-Command home theater receivers (also known as the X-Series). These two new series of user-friendly home theater receivers with cutting-edge sound and images replace—and improve on—Denon’s prior A/V receiver models.

“Customers are delighted with the looks, ease of use, and performance of the new models, but there remains some confusion about the correlation between the new, 2013 models and the previous ones,” said Paul Belanger, technical product manager for Denon’s parent company D+M Group. “Which new models replace which of the previous models, and how do they compare? All models offer improvements over previous models—and in the higher-end models, the improvements are dramatic.”

These E-Series A/V receivers make high-quality home entertainment more accessible than ever before.

Notably, both the AVR-E400 and AVR-E300 feature popular cloud based music streaming services like Pandora, SiriusXM and Spotify* as well as music streaming from all of today’s most popular mobile devices and smartphones. A host of leading audio capabilities deliver a powerful and immersive soundscape providing accurate music reproduction in a home stereo system and cinema-like surround sound.
