Mahwah, NJ, (July 31, 2013)—Earlier this year Denon® Electronics, a premier
manufacturer of high-quality home and personal audio products, introduced two new
series of home theater receivers: the E-Series A/V receivers and the IN-Command
home theater receivers (also known as the X-Series). These two new series of user-friendly
home theater receivers with cutting-edge
sound and images replace—and improve on—Denon’s prior A/V receiver models.
“Customers are delighted with the looks, ease of use, and performance of the new
models, but there remains some confusion about the correlation between the new,
2013 models and the previous ones,” said Paul Belanger, technical product manager
for Denon’s parent company D+M Group. “Which new models replace which of the previous
models, and how do they compare? All models offer improvements over previous models—and
in the higher-end models, the improvements are dramatic.”
E-Series A/V Receivers
In creating its E-Series receivers, Denon made what consumers are looking for its
top priority with products that are smart, sophisticated, simple to set up and use.
The series features the AVR-E400 7.1 Channel Network Home Theater Receiver (MSRP:
$599), AVR-E300 5.1 Channel Network Home Theater Receiver (MSRP: $399), and AVR-E200
5.1 Channel Home Theater Receiver (MSRP: $249). These
E-Series A/V receivers make high-quality home entertainment more accessible
than ever before.
Notably, both the AVR-E400 and AVR-E300 feature popular cloud based music streaming
services like Pandora, SiriusXM and Spotify* as well as music streaming from all
of today’s most popular mobile devices and smartphones. A host of leading audio
capabilities deliver a powerful and immersive soundscape providing accurate music
reproduction in a home stereo system and cinema-like surround sound.
IN-Command Series of Home Theater Receivers
Denon’s IN-Command Series “X Series” (formerly known as the “CI” model lineup) home theater receivers
includes the AVR-X1000 Network Home Theater Receiver (MSRP: $499), the AVR-X2000
Network Home Theater Receiver (MSRP: $699), the AVR-X3000 Network Home Theater Receiver
(MSRP: $999), and the AVR-X4000 Network Home Theater Receiver (MSRP: $1299). Each
model offers breathtaking surround sound capabilities, with unique features geared
toward meeting the specific needs of today’s home theater enthusiasts and discerning
In the new line-up, the IN-Command "X Series" models replace the higher-level custom-installer
models in Denon's receiver lineup. Notably, each model features a common core set
of IN-Command features such as a three-year warranty, Audyssey MultEQ XT, full network
streaming functionality, variable multi-zone pre-outs, I/P control, web configuration,
remote access, I/R serial inputs, detachable power cord, Control4 certification,
front panel I/R lockouts, fully assignable digital and analog A/V inputs, new HDMI
video select functionality, AM/FM tuners, enhanced front panel cosmetics and expanded
amp assign configurations.
