”This Denon AVR is a force to be reckoned with.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2022 award-winner. Tested at £1499.

Your choice of 9-channel surround sound

With no fewer than nine powered channels, the Denon AVC-X3800H gives you a wide choice of speaker configurations. Choose between 7.4.2 or 5.4.4 Dolby Atmos speaker configurations with two or four ceiling speakers. Alternatively, stick with 5.4.2 and power a second pair of speakers in another room or bi-amp your main pair of speakers. As your system grows, so the capability of this Denon AVC grows with it.

Upgrade to 11-channel surround
Add an extra stereo power amp and the Denon lets you configure four ceiling or Atmos-enabled speakers as well as full 7-channel surround sound. Alternatively, use two Atmos speakers and enjoy a broad soundstage with 'front wide speakers' forming a 9.2.2 system. If you don't fancy a Dolby Atmos specific system but want the most immersive sound possible, go for an 11.2 configuration. This offers 7.2 sound with the addition of front width and front height speakers.

Connect up to four subwoofers for balanced bass around the room
For the best-balanced bass, the AVC-X3800H has four passive subwoofer outputs. This lets you place a subwoofer in each corner of the room, giving a smooth, even bass response. With four bass channels, you can also use smaller subwoofers. This gives you a tighter, punchier bass whilst not losing out on any bass weight and depth.

Your choice of immersive 3D sound
Whatever speaker configuration you decide upon, the AVC-X3800H has a surround format to suit. Compatible formats include Dolby Atmos, Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization Technology, DTS:X, DTS Virtual:X, IMAX Enhanced, Auro-3D and Auro-Matic upmixing. This huge range of options means you can adapt your surround sound speaker system from the simplest system with ‘virtual height’ speakers to full-blown 11.4 systems that truly bring the cinema home.

Dirac Live set-up*
For the very best sound in your room, Denon is set to offer powerful room correcting technology from Dirac Research. This uses a microphone and dedicated software to take multiple readings around your room and feed the information back to the amplifier for a completely bespoke response (professional set-up recommended).

*Extra cost, optional upgrade available with future SW update.

Audyssey MultEQ XT32 for simple room set-up
Featuring Audyssey's high-end MultEQ XT32 technology, the AVC-X3800H adapts itself to your room's acoustics. The XT32 version of this automatic measuring and set-up device features include Audyssey Dynamic Volume, Dynamic EQ, LFC and SubEQ HT for total control. If you want to take this even further, purchase the MultEQ Editor App (at additional cost) and you've access to advanced user settings.

Dual speaker preset memory
For sound tailored to your content, you can store two speaker and Audyssey settings and switch between them. Ideal for switching between a ‘gaming’ and ‘movie’ set-up, for example, the presets include Amp Assign, Speaker Config, Distances, Levels, Crossovers, Bass, Front Speaker, 2ch Playback and Graphic EQ (when Audyssey is not used).

8K, HDCP 2.3 full HDMI interface
Upgrading on previous AVCX3000-series amps, the X3800 now features a complete 8K compatible HDMI interface. Whereas just a single HDMI input was 8K compatible, now all six inputs are 8K ready. Two of the three outputs are 8K compatible, too. They support 8K pass-through, 4K/120Hz and 8K upscaling of 4K content, too. The X3800 also supports the latest copy protection standard, HDCP 2.3.

Wide-ranging HDR support
The AVC-X3800H also supports a wide range of High Dynamic Range video formats. These include Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG. It also supports HDR10+, which enhances picture realism by sending dynamic Meta data to your TV, as well as Dynamic HDR. In short, whatever the format used by the film, game or stream, the Denon supports it.

Brilliant for gamers
The enhanced HDMI interface makes this Denon AV amp the perfect choice for gaming. All HDMI inputs support 4K/120Hz and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) for the best resolution and clarity. Quick Frame Transport (QFT) and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) help eliminate lag and frame tearing, giving you a smoother, more responsive gaming experience.

HEOS built-in - for the finest multiroom audio
HEOS multiroom music systems connect together by dual-band Wi-Fi, making them easy to set up with your existing home network. Up to 32 HEOS units can be set up at one time, ensuring even the largest of homes are covered for multiroom music. With HEOS already built-in, the AVC-X3800H is ready to go as a single 'zone' without any further adaptors.

Control it all with the HEOS app
Once you've set up your HEOS speaker system, you can stream music effortlessly via the dedicated HEOS app. Available for Apple iOS and Android, the app not only lets you stream your stored music but also Internet radio services and popular streaming services such as Spotify, Tidal, Napster and Deezer.

Use with your choice of voice assistant
Compatible with Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant, the AVC-X3800H works with your voice assistant of choice. For Alexa or Google Assistant control, simply download the HEOS app. Pair your Echo device if you’re using Alexa and you’re good to go – adjust the volume, skip to the next track and switch inputs simply by asking Alexa or Google. For control via Siri, simply link the amp via Apple AirPlay 2 and enjoy voice interaction and AirPlay 2 multi-room support.

Maximise all your content's audio, with the Denon AVC-X3800H.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from March 2024 Denon AVC-X3800H Preston Store The first thing that I would like to mention is the great service from James at the Preston store, super friendly, never tried to push any product or try to pressure any sale, just offered great advice and was always happy to answer my questions in store over the phone and via email. I've waited a week before submitting this review as I wanted to spend some time with the purchases. I needed to replace my Samsung Q series Soundbar and was trying to decide if I should go for a straight replacement with the latest version or move into the separates arena and build a system. After talking to James and reading various reviews and articles I settled on the Denon, I am I so happy I did. I'm now able to connect my PS5, Xbox series X, 4k blu-ray player and fire stick all into the Denon, something that was not possible with the Soundbar. The Denon is 8k ready for when I upgrade my TV and has enough growth potential to expand the speaker set up down the line. I've purchased the Wharfedale Diamond 12 series speakers for the surround sound set up and it was really easy to set everything up. I now have a 5.1 surround sound set up that covers every sound format I can think off. From Imax enhanced content on Disney+ to Dolby Atmos and DTX 4k movies. Not only does the Denon handle all the different formats and inputs easily but it also improves the sound and the picture quality. It was clear to see and hear the difference straight away. The only negative I can think of is the remote, it's not backlit and the volume buttons are super sensative a one second hold on the volume up button and you can go from level forty to the mid fifties but I've soon got used to it. Over all I can't recommend this Denon enough. If you are setting up a surround sound system and you do not have a dedicated theatre then this is a great product. I can't wait to expand the system as the years pass to include upward firing speakers and an amp and it's great to know I'll be able to output in 8k when I upgrade the TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great staff, very helpful. Only just yet it up so it’s early days, plus we won’t have the full set up for some time yet. However so far so good. They team at the Maidstone store went out of their way to guide us. Spent more than planned but feel we’ve made the right move in future proofing our system, (as far as anyone can do in today’s world). Streets ahead of our old system already and more to come as we expand our options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Future ready and excellent AV options When looking to replace my AV receiver after many years, it was great to find this Denon AVC-X3800H that allowed me to simplify my home AV connectivity, while future-proofing the system for when I need to upgrade my TV and other devices. This unit is an excellent balance of features and price for the size of room and number of speakers I use. Of course you can always spend more for a more powerful AV receiver, but this would only be valuable in larger spaces and more speaker connections so there is no need to spend for features that will be unused. It was great to be able to test out the unit before buying in the Richer Sounds demo room, which gave me the confidence this was the perfect choice for me! Great to have the knowledgeable input from the shop team.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Amp for my home cinema upgrade! Bought this X3800 to replace my aging Marantz SR7009 and am pleasantly impressed. I had big hopes for the X3800 paired with a stereo amp for a 7.2.4 setup in my movie room. 3d sound placement is fantastic and it's packed with features and covers just about all audio formats along with decent power. Along with great service from RS Hull by Phill.
