Latest HDMI 2.0

Connectivity

Equipped with the latest HDMI 2.0 specification, the AVR-S900W is ready for the future with, 4K Ultra HD 60Hz, 4:4:4 Pure Color and 21:9 video pass-through. The AVR-S900W also has the ability to upconvert and scale standard definition and high definition video sources to 4K Ultra HD resolution.

8 HDMI Inputs,

Dual HDMI Outputs

Equipped with no less than 8 HDMI inputs, the AVR-S900W features 7 HDMI version 2.0 inputs on the rear panel, along with another HDMI input on the front panel that lets you conveniently connect your favorite game console, HD camcorder or other HDMI device.

The dual HDMI outputs let you drive two separate HDMI-equipped displays at the same time.

Powerful 7 Channel

Discrete Amplifier with Eco Mode

With each channel rated at a maximum power of 185 watts, the AVR-S900W features a power amplifier design that incorporates multiple high current discrete output devices, with identical circuit topology on all 7 channels.

Our new Eco Mode provides the ability to reduce overall power consumption and features an on-screen Eco Meter that lets you see the power consumption reduction effect.

The Auto Eco mode automatically switches between normal and Eco modes, depending on the volume level chosen, and the power amplifier block is rated to drive low impedance speaker loads, down to 4 ohms, for compatibility and stability with virtually any loudspeaker model.

Audyssey Bronze Built-in

As the first A/V receiver maker to embrace Audyssey's advanced DSP audio processing, Denon leads the industry in incorporating the technologies in our broad product range.

The AVR-S900W features the Audyssey Bronze family of DSP technologies, which includes MultEQ room acoustic measurement and correction. Via the supplied measuring microphone, the MultEQ system first measures actual in-room response from all the speakers, including the subwoofer, and then quickly generates multiple precision digital filters that ensure the smoothest possible response.

Audyssey Dynamic Volume uses sophisticated DSP algorithms to smooth out jumps in volume, such as commercials, letting you hear clearly even at lower listening levels. Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides sophisticated tonal balancing, delivering smooth, rich response across the entire audio range.

Dual Subwoofer Outputs

Depending on the location of the subwoofer in a listening room relative to the listening position, the deep bass quality can be marred by in-room resonances that negatively affect bass quality, with peaks and dips that together produce boomy bass and muddy bass detail.

Equipped with dual subwoofer outputs, the AVR-S900W lets you use two subwoofers, placed in different locations in the listening room. By having two subs in different locations in the room, the bass quality can very often be significantly better due to response averaging, with smoother, deeper bass free of annoying peaks and dips.

Multi-room Listening

Thanks to the AVR-S900W's flexible Amp Assign function, you can choose to power a 5.1 channel home theater surround system, and dedicate the 2 additional amp channels to deliver stereo sound to a pair of speakers in another room. Watch a surround sound movie in the main room with the ability to have a separate stereo source playing in a second room.

Dolby Pro Logic IIz

Front Height Channels

Thanks to the Dolby Pro Logic IIz decoder, you can configure the AVR-S900W to drive a 7.1 channel home theater surround sound speaker system, with 5 main speakers and an additional pair of front height speakers that deliver an expansive front soundstage to match the on-screen action.

Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio

The digital audio processor features the ability to decode high resolution audio tracks from Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio sources, and the high resolution D/A converter section features precision D/A converters that can handle up to 24 bit, 192 kHz high resolution digital audio tracks.

Color Coded

Speaker Terminals

TFor the quickest and easiest setup, the AVR-S900W features a horizontal row of color coded premium quality loudspeaker terminals, and the supplied color coded speaker labels make sure that connections are correct the very first time.

Easy To Use

Quick Select Functions

The front panel features 4 Quick Select function buttons, so you can quickly choose your favorite source. The system remembers not only the source selected, but also your preferred audio settings for each one. The ergonomic remote control also features 4 dedicated Quick Select function buttons.

Stylish Front Panel Design

The AVR-S900W features Denon's stylish front panel design, with prominent volume control and source selector knobs. The graphical display combines clear text along with easy to understand graphical symbols that let you see the selected source, the volume level and other key information with maximum legibility. The smooth brushed hairline finish resists fingerprint smudges, and delivers an elegant and stylish look.

Professional Reviews

Mark Fleischmann

"Denon's AVR-S900W is a receiver that tries to do everything and pretty much succeeds. Triple wireless connectivity, a thoughtful interface, and solid room correction are pluses—and the supplied mike stand is a great idea. But the biggest attraction is great sound, at what amounts to a very affordable price, no less. That's what makes it all worthwhile."
