Atmos AV Receiver - Denon AVR-X6400H
OUR OPINION - Due to the huge success of the almighty AVR-X6300 there has been much speculation and hype as to whether its replacement will be much of an improvement, after all 'When it isn't broke, don't try to fix it'. That phrase is not in Denon's ethos and its a good job too as the all new AVR-6400H is something quite spectacular with all the original features and more. What's even more fascinating is that they have managed to fit all of these features and power into a regular sized AV Receiver
So what can you expect ? Quite a lot would be the answer to that but the main feature that we believe is phenomenal when compared to other AV Receivers is the built in Heos wireless multiroom, hence the 'H' in the model number. Now your living room cinema can be part of your whole house audio system thanks to Heos. The AVRX6400H also features Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, Auro 3D, 11 channels of power, 4K UHD HDMI's, Bluetooth, WIFI, Audyssey MultEQ Editor App and so much more. In short the AVR-X6400H has everything you could ever want combined with legendary Denon sound, we knew that this was another award winner in the making and What Hifi have just confirmed it.
Enjoy the most complete surround sound experience with latest audio formats Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro-3D built-in. Most remarkably, the 11 channel amplification allows for setting up a full 7.1.4 3D experience without the need of an external amplifier.
Dolby Atmos transports you into the story with moving audio that flows all around you with breathtaking realism. Enjoy a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound speaker system and 4 additional overhead speakers or 4 Dolby Atmos elevation speakers for the ultimate home theatre experience - including Dolby Surround upmixer for legacy content.
DTS:X™ immersive audio places sound where it would occur naturally in space, creating a lifelike, multi-dimensional audio experience in the home. The improved immersion and heightened realism draw you into the world of your favourite movies. The included spatial remapping engine, DTS Neural:X™, gives your movie, game and music collections a new lease on life! DTS:X brings the theatre home.
Auro-3D® elevates the home theatre experience to amazing new levels by delivering the excitement of three-dimensional sound for music, games, broadcast, and films while enhancing your existing audio-visual collection, thanks to Auromatic up-mixing engine.
All eight HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs feature HDCP 2.2 compatibility and the latest HDMI specifications, including 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 21:9 video, 3D, and BT.2020 pass-through support. It is even ready for Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) for 3D audio broadcast over TV.
The AVR-X6400H supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) video format. It is even ready for Dolby Vision and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma). Dolby Vision transforms the viewing experiences with astonishing brightness, contrast, and colour. HLG offers HDR technology over broadcast content.
The Denon AVR-X6400H has the platinum version of the industry leading room correction program from Audyssey. Using the included setup microphone the AVRX6400 will take you step by step through this simple setup to adjust parameters to allow for your room acoustics. If you have dual subwoofers ( Our recommendation ) the Audyssey can even calibrate them individually to allow for differences in positioning. Another fantastic feature of XT32 is Dynamic EQ, not everybody wants to listen to their movies at reference level however, when the volume is lowered the drama and surround sound experience may be lost. Dynamic EQ combats this by adjusting levels to ensure that you hear the full experience of the blockbuster movie at any volume. As if that wasn't enough, Denon have also included Audyssey Dynamic Volume which takes out the differences in volume between adverts and soaps meaning you wont be reaching for the remote before the adverts start.Heos Wireless Multiroom Built In
Built-in HEOS technology allows the AVR-X6400H to become part of the HEOS wireless multi-room system, allowing you to enjoy your favorite music anywhere - and everywhere - around your home. Share music stored on your home network, Internet radio or streaming services with HEOS wireless speakers, or even other HEOS-capable receivers, throughout the house. And it's all controlled by the free HEOS app, installed on as many smartphones and tablets as you like! The app gives you instant multi-room audio control, meaning you can command music in every room from any device: play different music from different sources in every room, group several rooms together and play the same song, perfectly synchronized, in party mode! If you want to make your house a HEOS house then why not take a look at the full HEOS range here.Hi Res Audio Player & Powerful DSP Engine
The Denon AVR-X6400H is not just capable of multichannel audio, its also engineered for playback of Hi Res audio files including DSD 5.6 Mhz and 192/24-Bit FLAC files.
