”With an open soundstage, clear vocals and quick timing, the AVR-X2800H has a great sound and the connectivity options to match.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

The Denon difference

Founded in 1910, Denon has over a century of audio experience. This experience becomes clear, as soon as you listen to the Denon AVR-X2800H DAB. With a high performance, discrete 7-channel amplifier at its heart, this Denon AVR has a perfect balance of power and control. With 95 watts per channel, the full force of home cinema movies and gaming is easily realised.

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
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. 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.

DAB radio built-in
As well as the widest range of home cinema options, this Denon AVR 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.

Enhanced 8K, HDCP 2.3 HDMI compatibility
Upgrading on previous AVRX2000-series receivers, the X2800 now features three, 8K compatible HDMI sockets, compared to one. Both outputs are 8K compatible, too. They support 8K pass-through, 4K/120Hz and 8K upscaling of 4K content, too. The X2800 also supports the latest copy protection standard, HDCP 2.3.

Wide-ranging HDR support
The AVR-X2800H 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.

Made for gamers in mind
The enhanced HDMI interface makes this Denon AV receiver the perfect choice for gaming. There’s support for 4K/120Hz and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate), giving you 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-X2800H 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.

Use with your choice of voice assistant
Compatible with Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant, the AVR-X2800H DAB 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.

Audyssey MultEQ XT for optimised set-up
Featuring Audyssey's MultEQ XT technology, the AVR-X2800H DAB adapts itself to your room's acoustics. Use the supplied Audyssey measuring microphone and the system tunes the AV receiver to provide the smoothest, most optimal overall listening experience for your room. If you want to take this even further, purchase the MultEQ Editor App (at additional cost) and you've access to advanced user settings.

Connect it all – from turntable to TV
With six HDMI inputs (three 8K, three 4K), the Denon has you covered for connecting all your video and gaming devices. 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, plus there’s a further, dedicated MM phono input for plugging in a turntable.

Quick Selects for the perfect sound – instantly
With such user flexibility, getting the perfect sound can be a complex business. For this reason, Denon has fitted the AVR-X2800H DAB with four Quick Select audio presets. Take your time in setting the ideal sound balance for your TV, Blu-ray, games console and music source and recall them at the touch of a button for the ideal sound, instantly.

Channel all your home entertainment through an AVR that excels as the perfect all-rounder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now things really sing I upgraded backwards. First off, I treated myself to the Dali Oberon 5 floor standing left and right. Amazing uplift in quality from my old speakers. Then I changed the centre to the matching vokal centre speaker. Wow, big increase in clarity for speech. Six months later, I bit the bullet and upgraded to this Denon. 4k native, 8k available, all speaker connectors are in a line making connections easier than the previous amp that had positive below the negative. Setup is neat and Wizard based and they even give you a cardboard tripod for the calibration microphone. No messing about with setting the audio type, it pulls the data from the signal, no need to really do anything after the setup except change the volume. I went from a really good 7.2.2 Yamaha to this and the voices of the movies are so much sharper, the soundstage is huge. The 4k image passes through with no lag. And boy is it every loud, but controlled. I knew what I wanted and did not need to audition it this time. I had technical questions, answered with ease as ever by the wonderful Ash in the Oxford store and I left clutching my new prize rather hurriedly before any of the other lovely shiny toys shouted to me for attention.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic AV, works great with the Focal 5.1 setup Bought 2 months ago, admittedly it took me most of the time to build the shelves for the system to sit on... Enough power for the Focal chora 5.1 system, looks great and the UI seems easy enough. Really like the mic based setup - even if I dont know how much difference it makes. All quality components and a joy to listen too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really clear sound, lots of power The Denon X2800H works really well, my key reason to upgrade was to improve speech during films and of course to have better sounds processing. I'm please to say the unit does very well and improves things significantly without needing to reduce the dynamic-range of the overall sound tracks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Denon AVR-X2800H DAB - great product The product is easy to install where you can simply follow the instructions on the TV. The se of the product is also quite straightforward and has a great sound. I'm very happy with the product and all the functionalities

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service, Great Price I bought a new AVR amp. I had a problem with my purchase and was really pleased with how the issue was managed. The Denon 2800 AVR is fantastic and the new Chord speaker wire has definitely improved my A.V output. I've shopped at Richer Sounds for many years and have no plans to go anywhere else in future. Great service, great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent piece of kit I had searched the market for some time for a receiver that combined all the features I wanted - to be able to connect my smart TV, phono, two set-top boxes, a blue-ray DVD and yes, even a VHS(!), with a DAB tuner and surround sound outputs and this was the only thing I could find that did it all. It also has features not needed which I won't review. I have linked it to a pair of refurbished Mission 737 speakers with Kenwood surround sound speakers. The sound is crystal clear and I'm hearing many of my CDs (of various genres) as if for the first time. Likewise with the DAB tuner. It took a while to sus out how the receiver was working with my smart TV which has a wi-fi connection to the router (as does the receiver), and all the other controls and options but lots of experimenting and practice and I think I now understand it without having had recourse to Richer Sounds' advisory service. Overall I am well pleased with the purchase and enjoying very much what it does for me across several media options.
