2016 Best Home Cinema Amplifier Under £500 & Readers Award!
“No revolution, but the AVR-X2300W didn’t need to be. It’s a superb sonic all-rounder and well-equipped with it”

AudioVisual Online

"The big question is whether the 2300 is better than its predecessor... we’re pleased to report that the new amplifier is notably cleaner sounding. It picks up a greater amount of low-level detail and is more precise with it. Voices come through with improved clarity and precision. One of the biggest upgrades is at bass frequencies where the 2300 sounds far tauter and more agile, making the older model sound a tad soft and ill-defined in comparison."

Best HT Receiver 2016-2017

"... it’s the sound performance that really impresses. This is an AV receiver that’s as comfortable handling low-level subtleties as it is room-filling dynamics, and Dolby Atmos decoding is on hand to bring the 3D surround experience from premium cinemas to your home"

The Denon AVR-X2300W incorporates all the features of its predecessor with added benefits such as the very latest audio and video technologies. X2300W delivers incredibly immersive surround sound, optimised via extensive sound tuning, not to mention plenty of amplifier power. It has Dolby Atmos decoding and processing, for the same revolutionary 3D surround sound found in premium movie theatres. You will be able to decode DTS:X soundtracks via a future firmware update, for complete three dimensional surround compatibility.

Dolby Atoms

Dolby Atoms

Dolby's revolutionary Dolby Atmos technology dispenses with the channel-based surround sound coding used for decades, in favour of advanced object-based coding, giving the sound designer the ability to place sounds precisely anywhere in the three-dimensional sound space. Now you can enjoy this award-winning technology at home with the AVR-X2300W, which features the ability to connect a 5.1 surround sound speaker system and 2 additional overhead speakers or 2 additional Dolby Atmos-certified elevation speakers for the ultimate home cinema experience

DTS:X

DTS:X

The latest immersive surround sound system, DTS:X features similar object-based audio coding, and provides for overhead speakers to deliver a stunning surround sound experience. (DTS:X will be enabled via future firmware update). This includes both Dolby Surround and Neural:X up mixing: users with a '3D' sound speaker set-up are able to get an enhanced surround experience from conventional Dolby- or DTS-encoded content, or even music in stereo, using the full set of speakers installed in the listening room.

High Resolution Audio

High Resolution Audio

Discover the incredible fidelity of high resolution audio tracks with the AVR-X2300W's ability to decode up to 24-bit/192-kHz lossless files (AIFF, FLAC and WAV; ALAC/Apple Lossless to 24-bit/96kHz), as well as DSD 2.8MHz (the audiophile format of SACD) and now 5.6MHz. Play them from memory devices via the front panel USB, or from network sources. The AVR-X2300W will also play lossy file types such as MP3.

Powerful 7ch w/ Eco Mode

Powerful 7ch w/ Eco Mode

Featuring high current discrete power output devices on all seven channels, the AVR-X2300W is rated at 150 watts per channel. It's also equipped with high-current low impedance drive capability, for compatibility with the widest range of loudspeaker models (down to 4 ohms). The Eco mode adjusts the power amplifier's output according to the volume level to reduce power consumption, with an on-screen Eco meter providing real-time monitoring of the power-saving.

Smart TV Connectivity

Using the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality provided on some Smart TVs, it's possible to control Denon receivers with the TV's remote handset. Set the receiver's "HDMI control" to ON, choose the "Smart Menu" receiver control functions on the TV, and the Smart Menu home screen allows direct access to a range of receiver functions including source and surround mode, the main set up menu, and the Smart Select 'one-touch' pre-sets.

Multi-Source / Multi-Room

With the AVR-X2300W it's possible to enjoy 5.1-channel surround in one room, while another 'zone' plays another source - such as CD or streaming audio. You can simply connect a pair of stereo speakers to the multi-room amplified outputs. Or, connect a separate stereo amp and speakers to the Zone 2 pre-outs, allowing full 5 channel surround sound in the main room with stereo in the second.

Bought as an upgrade to an old model I've had a few years and I wasn't disappointed. This feature packed 7.1 AVR is nothing short of amazing, especially if buying on a budget. Thanks to the bundle deal I got on this amp, coupled with the mission m3 speakers, sounds just sing out in sheer clarity and deep and powerful bass. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a mid range atmos system with all the features. *****

Excellent AV receiver. Needed to upgrade my AVR-X3000 as I have recently made the jump to 4K. Although some of the specs are a step down its HDCP2.2 functionality and wifi/bluetooth connectivity make up for it. Great system would highly recommend.
