Powerful, versatile and a master of home cinema, the Denon AVC-X4800H delivers a premium experience.

The power to impress
With a mono block power amp construction, the Denon AVC-X4800H puts out 125 watts per channel - nearly 20% more power than the model below. It’s this extra grunt that makes all the difference to action movies – with explosions that you ‘feel’ and heightened tension in the soundtracks for ‘edge-of-seat’ drama. Even in larger home cinema rooms, the X4800H has the power to deliver an enveloping and truly cinematic experience.

Enhanced processing for absolute precision
More than just a powerhouse, the AVC-X4800H has the precision to match. At the heart of the Denon is a 32-bit DDSC (Dynamic Discrete Surround Circuit), with Denon’s top-grade Alpha AL32 processor. Rather than using a single chip, it employs separate components to drive the various parts of the digital processing. Dedicated processing delivers greater precision and accuracy, across the board, giving you more lifelike and detailed sound.

Flexible, 9-channel surround sound
With nine powered channels, the Denon AVC-4800H 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-X4800H 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 missing any bass weight and depth.

Wide range of immersive 3D sound formats
Whatever speaker configuration you decide upon, the AVC-X4800H 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 360 Reality Audio. 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.

Advanced multiroom functionality and custom install ready
The AVC-X4800H has three HDMI outputs with an independent Zone 2 interface. This means you can run audio and video to another screen, in another room independently from the twin, main outputs. IP control capability for major third-party control devices, as well as Control4 SDPP (Simple Device Detection Protocol) certification, plus three DC triggers makes this AV amp ideal for more complex home installations.

Unique Dirac Live set-up*
For the very best sound in your room, Denon offer the option of 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).

*Dirac Live Room Correction and Dirac Live Bass Control are available at additional cost.

Audyssey MultEQ XT32 for simple room set-up
Featuring Audyssey's high-end MultEQ XT32 technology, the AVC-X4800H 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.

HDMI interface fully equipped for 8K
The AVC-X4800H is equipped for an 8K future. With no fewer than seven HDMI inputs, all of which are 8K and 4K/120Hz ready, you’ll have all the connectivity you’ll ever need. Two of the three outputs are 8K compatible, too. They support 8K pass-through, 4K/120Hz and 8K upscaling of 4K content, as well, ensuring you get the very best picture from legacy sources.

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.

Wide-ranging HDR support
The AVC-X4800H 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.

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-X4800H 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-X4800H 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.

Take your movie and gaming passion to the next level, with the Denon AVC-X4800H.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from X4800 Superior build Purchased 20/12/23 I was tempted to purchase the 3800 but upgraded to the 4800 Richer sounds as usual gave me a fantastic price unbeatable. The unit has been a huge upgrade over my 3400 sound stage wise. Had zero HDMI handshake issues at present with various bits of kit PS5, 4K player or Sky. Functionality is impressive from Atmos, Auro, DTX, Dirac, remote app and Heos had no issue with as other have mentioned. Running 702s, 705s, S3, CCM663 ceilings and a SVS pro 2000 very nice movie experience and musically 2 channel out[put is clean. External amp to drive centre stage for me not required. great piece of kit movie night is now a look forward to event.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Denon really pulled out a beauty with the X4800H Only been installed and set up today. My initial choice was a NAD T778 purely as I wanted to have a AV that was as good in 2 channel music as it was using its processors for cinema however that device is almost twice the price. Well after installing and listening to cinema stuff this afternoon I chose to try out the music side and I was blown away with the imagery. I have been using a Yamaha A-S701 2 channel amp for my music being fed into a pair of monitor audio Silver 500 7G speakers and felt that I could not improve the sound, how wrong was I as the imagery that was vastly improved feeding them from the Denon AVC X4800H. I might now connect my TT with iFi pre amp and Cambridge Azur 851N to it also even though I can use Spotify from the Denon. Feel like the cat that got the cream

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A worthy upgrade After 11 years of solid service, I thought it time to retire my SONY STR-DN1030 and invest in a new receiver. I popped into the Bath store and they kindly spent a couple of hours taking me through a number of options. My priority was a balanced receiver that could handle music and speech as well as multichannel movies. The sales people at Bath started me on the Denon X2800H, which sounded good for movies but surprisingly poor for music - harsh and hollow. We then had a listen to an Onkyo TX-NR6100, and the difference was night and day - the Onkyo sounded full and melodic, where the 2800 was just loud and harsh. Trouble is, the Onkyo is one ugly duck, and whilst the Denon is hardly up there with Yamaha and Marantz for industrial design, it's clean and unassuming. With one last throw of the die, the sales people offered up the Denon X3800H, which sounded much fuller and less bright; not quite as pleasing as the Onkyo, but good enough. So why did I go for the X4800H? Put simply, the bigger, two-line display is a huge help in deciphering input signals, especially when coming from TV channels that don't always deliver the surround sound they should. The graphic speaker configuration was once a mainstay of receivers, but is now a rarity, yet I find it hugely useful on this model, especially as the front display is so bright (so much so that I have actually turned the brightness down a notch). Couple onto that the rock solid build quality of the Japanese made, metal faced 4800, plus the monolithic amp all packed into a form factor that's not especially tall, and this feel like the best option available before they start to grow ungainly and unaffordable. As for the model, it's super-easy to set up - Audessey 32 gives an impressively accurate result, and sounds great for both music and film. I am running all Cambridge Audio speakers (SX80 floorstanders F&R, S50 Centre, S30 bookshelves surround, Aero 9 Sub, Minx Min 12 front heights) and it integrates nicely in my setup. I have had the occasional HDMI drop for a couple of seconds (the internet suggests Denons can suffer from this), but that was before updating the firmware, and my HDMI cables are of mixed quality and questionable heritage, so will keep an eye on that and swap over/upgrade cables to see if it cures it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb AVR I picked this up as a replacement for a Denon AVR-X3800. What can I say, it’s a significant step up in quality and performance. I’m running it in a 5.1.4 configuration and with Dolby Atmos content the sound stage and channel separation is superb. Build quality is also a step up. Overall very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond words Only had it a couple of weeks, but my word, the upgrade from a previous Denon AVC3300, to the 4800 has just blown me away, stunning in every way. I matched it with a pair of Rubicon 2 at the front, Opticon 2 for the sides Dali Atmos set at front high. The whole atmosphere of films music is just unbelievable. Plus films being produced by my faithful Oppo. The colours are like true life, Sharpe and the colour palette is just mind blowing. Thank you Richer Sounds Solihull

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A much more robust case than the AVC-X3800H So, I upgraded a much loved AVR-3808 from 2008 with a AVC-X3800H but as soon as I opened the box I was not happy with the new 3800H. The front panel had lots of plasticky buttons and without a front flap had the USB, headphone and mic ports on show. So even though functionality wise they are almost identically I chose to return the 3800 and trade up to a 4800H. I'm now super happy with this receiver - it is a much more robust/solid beast! I'm not sure I can justify the Dirac license (and calibration mic) but am considering it! Great amp lots of power and sounds awesome.
