Experience the immersion of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X use ceiling or up-firing speakers for three-dimensional and fully immersive sound. Whether it’s rain falling in a tropical jungle or the intense sound of overhead gunfire, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X put you in the centre of the action.
Extra height, without the speakers - Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization and DTS Virtual:X
As impressive as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X sound, it’s not always possible to accommodate the extra speakers. Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization and DTS Virtual:X Height Virtualisation technology go some way to help fix. Play any Dolby format and enjoy a more immersive sound with virtual height enhancement – using your existing speakers. DTS Virtual:X also creates a more enveloping sound from any DTS codec. Compatible with 2.1, 5.1 or 7.1 speaker configurations, DTS Virtual:X gives the impression of height and immersive sound.
Ready for 8K, with dedicated HDMI input
Featuring a dedicated, 8K compliant HDMI input and matching output, this Denon AVR is ready for the next generation of TV. Not only does the amp pass through 8K/60Hz signals, but it also upscales HDMI signals to the 8K standard, too – helping you make the most of your 8K TV with 4K UHD media. If you’ve not yet made the jump to 8K TV, the socket also handles up to 4K/120Hz signals, for the highest quality pass through and upscaling with 4K UHD.
Supports Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and Dynamic HDR
Equipped with a flexible 6 in/2 out HDMI interface, the AVR-X2700H DAB 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.
DAB radio built-in
As well as the widest range of home cinema options, the AVR-X2700H DAB also features a DAB radio. Perfect for when you just want some background music, DAB (digital) radio offers a wide range of stations, including the popular BBC 6 Music and 4 Extra.
Serious about gaming
The latest HDMI support also marks a big improvement in gaming. 4K/120Hz and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) support maximise 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.
Works with all the voice assistants
The AVR-X2700H DAB adds Siri and Google Assistant to Alexa, making it more widely compatible with voice assistants than before. 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. For control via Siri, simply link the amp via Apple AirPlay 2 and enjoy voice interaction and AirPlay 2 multi-room support.
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 AVR-X2700H DAB 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.
Bluetooth, AirPlay 2, and built-in wi-fi for the complete networking experience
With both Bluetooth and AirPlay 2 connectivity it's easy to connect all your smartphones, tablets and compatible lap/desktops and stream music wirelessly. The AVR-X2700H also comes with wi-fi and Internet radio. 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 (requires Spotify Premium account). A Bluetooth headphone output is now also standard.
Connect more – including a turntable
As well as six HDMI inputs, the Denon also has a wide range of other AV connectivity. Older AV sources are catered for with component and composite inputs. Optical digital inputs are ideal for connecting older devices or upgrading the sound from a compatible CD/Network player. Four analogue inputs are perfect for Hi-Fi components, with the dedicated MM phono input for plugging in a turntable.

With such user flexibility, getting the perfect sound can be a complex business. For this reason, Denon has fitted the AVR-X2700HDAB with four Quick Select audio presets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Raider75 from Great upgrade on previous AV receiver The Denon was easy to set up and gives a great sound. Having had it a couple of weeks I've played around with a couple of the settings which has made the surround sound even more immersive. The picture quality is much better than my old receiver. All in all a great purchase!
