Immerse yourself in sound, with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X*

Dolby Atmos uses ceiling or upwards firing speakers to produce a multi-dimensional, immersive sound that's a match for the finest cinemas. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. This highly sophisticated processor renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also offers other advantages such as the ability to boost the spatial effect of conventional DTS and easily adapts with your existing speaker configuration.

Optimised for 4K UHD and HDR
The AVRX2300W features the latest HDMI connections and supports HDCP 2.2, HDR and BT.2020, which means you can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video. It's also equipped with 4K upscaling, giving you the most detailed picture on your 4K TV from all sources. The HDMI sockets allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be turned on.

High-Resolution audio compatible
As well as offering an intense movie experience, the Denon AVR-X2300W is also compatible with High-Resolution Audio. This offers a sound that's far more natural sounding than standard audio. The Denon AVRX2300W supports a wide range of HiRes format files including DSD (2.8/5.6MHz), FLAC, ALEC, AIFF and WAV. It even supports gapless playback for music free from glitches.

Denon 2016 AVR Remote
Available for Apple iOS, Android and Kindle Fire, the latest Denon control app is better than ever. It gives speedy access to the receiver's controls as well as the set-up menu. It also offers quick access to the receiver's status display, option menus and will even control a Denon Blu-ray player. You can load up an online owner's manual for your convenience, while the new queue management feature means you can browse and add new tracks to the playlist on the go.

Bluetooth, AirPlay, DLNA and built-in wi-fi for the complete networking experience
With both Bluetooth and AirPlay connectivity it's easy to connect up all your smartphones, tablets and compatible lap/desktops and stream music wirelessly. The AVRX2300W also comes with Wi-Fi, Internet radio and DLNA. Simply connect to your home network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi and access thousands of Internet radio sites via vTuner as well as subscription services such as Spotify Connect. DLNA 1.5 compatibility lets you stream from other sources such as your laptop or NAS drive.

All the connections you need including 8 HDMI inputs and dual outputs
With no fewer than eight HDMI inputs (including one at the front), the AVRX2300W has all your connection needs covered. The AVR-X2300W comes with twin HDMI outputs - ideal for running both a TV and projector, for example. An iOS compatible USB connection is standard. This allows plug-and-play flexibility without the need for a docking station. Finally, for music in another room, you can choose from active or passive Zone 2 outputs.

Easy to use with Quick Select
With four Quick Select Function buttons you can access not just a regular source quickly but also all its dedicated settings - at the touch of a single button. You can even add your favourite Internet radio station for rapid access to radio.

Audyssey Silver - making set-up precise and simple
Featuring the Audyssey Silver suite of DSP (Digital Sound Processing) functions, the AVRX2300W can be set-up with precison. The Silver suite includes Audyssey's MultEQ XT technology. The XT version of this automatic measuring and set-up device features extra modes and offers the option to measure from eight points for super-accurate room measuring.

Maximise both your music and movies, with the Denon AVR-X2300W.

*DTS-X available via future firmware update from Denon.

DENON AVRX2300W is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 117.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reciever Bought this a couple of weeks ago after first trying a Yam 381. With the minx 22's the yam sounded bright. The vocals on the 2300 are much clearer and natural. Set up was so easy, the app is a help too so you dont have to switch to the screen mode for tinkering during films. Is it better than the Yam 581? I dont know as i havnt tried that one. But this ones keeping me happy. Might return the speakers as although good for vocals the mid range with music is pretty poor Even with a 150hz cross over to the minx 201. Although streets ahead for films and tv, still not heard anything come close to the Q acoustic M4 for music playback. That thing was great! But brad pits voice in fury was a mumbled blur! Chester store was great much better service than another I visted. Lets say the beatles were the best thing to come out of L'pool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great upgrade Bought to replace a now discontinued Sony a/v amp this is such an improvement, took a little while to get the settings just right but having now got used to it it's quite easy to make any adjustments when I feel the need to. A much improved sound than I had been used to with a rich tone and clear dialogue, the 4k upscaling is terrific if you have a 4k tv. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound with good features on board Was looking to buy good AV amp for next few years. My Yamaha rx-v2600 gave up on me, so Denon was a choice. Mostly because of reviews from WhatHiFi and also from other websites. So far happy with purchase. It does what it should - sounds different than yamaha, but in general I never listen music too loud to hear much difference. Or it just me. Setup was easy and it took about 20min. Since then its just a pure pleasure. Paired with Technics speakers and I'm surprised with all details coming from them, especially in live tracks. I like all sort of music and so far all what I'm playing sounds great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Defining standard for others to follow If you are not sure which AV receiver to spend your hard earned monies on and need a nudge in the right direction - buy the Denon. I have experienced all the major brands and have found the Denon comes out winning above all the competition. For sound, usability and features, it will be a wise purchase and one that is sure to provide pleasure for your home theatre experience. Moreover, purchased through Richer Sounds taking advantage of their excellent 6 - year warranty and you have complete all-round confidence.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Denon AVR with 8 off 4K HDMI inputs. Denon AVRX2300W has 8 off 4K HDMI inputs, but only 2 optical audio inputs. Cannot get ARC to work so I use one of the two optical inputs for TV sound. The on-screen display is very good and instant with 1080 sources but blanks screen and reverts to 1080 with 2160 (4K) sources. Sound quality is very good once you de-select all the so called enhancements that the unit defaults to. Quite complicated to use, I must admit to having to read the manual, but once setup just sit back and enjoy. You can also switch sources, if listening on the TV, with the unit in standby. DLNA menus are very easy to use and find the music you wish the hear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a good choice My old receiver was nearly 10 years old and not performing as it used to after a couple of minutes I realised what I had been missing and how much things had changed. Arrived day after ordering. Would recommend Richer Sounds to anyone; the value and service are brilliant.
Date published: 2017-03-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pice of equipment Arranged for the receiver to be installed as I am not technically minded. Technician arrived on time, installed receiver and left. 10 mins. later the equipment developed a fault. He was back in 30 minutes and said the receiver was faulty. He returned it to Richer Sounds who exchanged it without a problem. The service from R.S, and Technician (Alex, Digital World Systems) was 1st. class.
