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

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 AVX-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.

Unique Dirac Live set-up – coming soon*
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).

*Due 2023. Requires additional payment.

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 multi-room audio
HEOS multi-room 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 multi-room 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 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, but crossover between analogue + eArc I’ve owned this for a couple of months now. Whilst overall it has been awesome for the audio and music output, there has been one issue. When using my turntable, it cuts out for a few 1/2-3/4 of a second every minute or so. After much investigation it turns out that it was the eARC from the TV, disturbing the analogue signal. I’m not sure how this is possible; but it happened with two separate amps after an exchange once the issue was identified. Apart from that, it has been bang on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great new amp Bought as full of features including HDMI 2.1 allowing 4k120 with Xbox series X. Easy setup on screen and lots of ability to adjust speaker settings and amp assign. Needed to select 8k enhanced on HDMI settings and restart to get this to work though. Good price point and future proofed (for a while!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and fully 8k ready I had being looking several of the Denon AVRs for several months. They look great and are all packed with features I will use. With the release of the X3800H they now provide full 8k compatibility at a price point that is close to the old models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from X3800h Excellent receiver Over priced No FM and AM radio in (Great Britain) No 70hz crossover Audyssey take it or leave it (do it yourself) Works with everything I throw at it (all formats) Sounds great Happy I am

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its all you need This was my first stand alone receiver and I cant say that I was disappointed. This machine has a multitude of well thought out settings. The main set up was quite easy but did need a few hours to tweak the settings. The next few days helped me get used to what everything did. The options for different sets of saved settings on the remote is very helpful dependent on what type of audio you are listening to. I'm sure I will fine tune the system over the next few weeks when I have more time to optimise all the settings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the cost I have been waiting over 2 years for the new model denon's to be out. The 3000 range has increased in price over the last few generations, but it still was a value proposition with the features on offer.
Date published: 2022-10-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, Outstanding customer service I was looking to upgrade my home cinema set up and the guys at RS Middlesbrough were great. Especially David. They listened to my needs and helped me to select the best kit within my budget. Brilliant
