FEATURES - AVR-X3000

Designed to serve as the heart and brain of your connected home theater system, the AVR-X3000 IN-Command 7.2 Network Home Theater Receiver is packed with connectivity, system configuration and control options. The powerful amplifier section features 7 discrete output stages with identical circuit topology, with each channel rated at 105 watts, easily able to drive today’s quality loudspeakers. Featuring 7 HDMI inputs (including 1 conveniently located on the front panel), the AVR-X3000 also features dual HDMI outputs, including one for the main room and one for another room. For the ultimate surround sound experience, the AVR-X3000 features Audyssey DSX, Dolby Pro Logic IIz and DTS Neo:X decoders, which lets you add front height or wide speakers to dramatically expand the front soundstage, along with dual subwoofer outputs for systems with two subs.

Product Feature

Highlights
  • Audyssey Gold Built-In for perfection in surround sound

  • Fully discrete, Class A/B amplification for all 7 channels (105w x 7ch)

  • DSX Neo:X & Audyssey DSX for front height or front wide speaker configurations

  • 7 HDMI Inputs / 2 HDMI Outputs

Audyssey Gold

The AVR-X3000 comes equipped with our Audyssey Gold package which includes Audyssey MultEQ XT, Audyssey Dynamic Volume, Audyssey Dynamic EQ, Audyssey DSX, and Audyssey Pro. Audyssey MultEQ XT calibrates the system for up to eight different seating positions, and it uses more and higher quality filters for better results, especially in the bass region, i.e., frequencies below 200Hz. As a result, bass is more impactful and is more evenly distributed throughout the room. Audyssey DSX offers the option of front wide and front height speakers which are placed to the left and right or above the main front speakers to broaden the width and height of the soundstage, making the audio experience more impressive, engaging, and believable. Audyssey Dynamic Volume senses the impending arrival of very loud sounds and automatically reduces the difference between normal and extra-loud programming. Audyssey Dynamic EQ automatically adjusts subwoofer and surround speaker levels for maximum performance at any playback volume. The AVR-X3000 is also Audyssey Pro Installer ready.

Audyssey Room

Acoustic Measurement and Correction

Audyssey MultEQ XT automatic room acoustic measurement and correction harnesses the power of sophisticated sophisticated DSP processing, measuring the acoustic output of the speakers and subwoofers and generating multiple digital EQ filters that provide the smoothest, most natural tonal balance in virtually any room. The AVR-X3000 is also Audyssey Pro Installer ready.

Sophisticated

Video Processing

The powerful video processor section features high resolution upconversion that transforms standard definition (SD) video content to high definition (HD), and provides upscaling of 1080p HD to 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160 pixels) for compatibility with the latest high resolution displays, along with 3D pass-through. The InstaPrevue function lets you view multiple windows for all of the connected HDMI sources, letting you pick your favorite content at the touch of a button.

Handles

Multiple Video Formats

The sophisticated video processor also provides for compatibility with legacy analog video sources, and features 3 composite video (SD) inputs, and 2 component video inputs that can accept both SD and HD video signals. These inputs are assignable as well, letting you continue to enjoy all of your favorite content for years to come. Since these sources are internally converted to digital video, you only need a single HDMI cable run to your HDTV, minimizing cable costs and installation hassle.

Expanded Surround

Sound Processing

In addition to the latest high resolution decoders, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, the AVR-X3000 7.2 receiver also features Audyssey DSX, Dolby Pro Logic IIz and DTS Neo:X decoding, which lets you connect an additional pair of front height or wide speakers to dramatically expand the front soundstage, transforming your home theater room into a large venue cinema space.

IN-Command Control

Sophistication

In addition to conventional remote control, the AVR-X3000 is equipped with a range of additional control options, including the “Denon Remote App”, which is available in iOS and Android versions, which lets you control the unit with your favorite smartphone or tablet. You can also control the AVR-X3000 via the web control function, which you can access via your PC or Mac web browser. Equipped with both LAN and RS-232C serial port connections, the AVR-X3000 is compatible with a broad range of home automation control systems from companies including AMX, Control4, Crestron, RTI, Savant and URC. The IR remote input and output jacks provide even more control options, and the unit features a 12V assignable trigger output for external device control, such as a motorized projection screen or motorized drapes control.

Enjoy Music

& Video in Two Rooms

You can set up the AVR-X3000 to enjoy music and video in the main room, while others can enjoy music and video from a different source in a second room. A second zone HDMI output lets others enjoy a different program in another room, and the Amp Assign function lets you use two of the amplifier channels to drive stereo speakers in the second room.

Connection

& Installation Ease

Setup is both quick and easy thanks to the Denon Setup Assistant, an intuitive on-screen graphical interface that walks you through the setup process. The newly designed rear panel features logically arranged blocks of connector groups, and includes horizontally arranged speaker binding posts with a “12 o’clock” speaker wire input orientation, and the speaker connectors can accept multiple termination types. For further ease of installation, the speaker connectors are color-coded, and the supplied color-coded speaker wire labels will ensure proper connections the very first time. The power cord is detachable, which provides additional installation flexibility.

Ethernet Connectivity

with Internet Radio, Streaming Services and AirPlay

Connect the AVR-X3000 to your home network via an Ethernet cable or an affordable WIFI adaptor or wireless Ethernet bridge and open up a whole new world of listening enjoyment. You can enjoy music and audio programs from a vast range of internet radio stations, as well as enjoying music from streaming services including SiriusXM, Spotify and Pandora (subscriptions required).

Equipped with Apple’s AirPlay function, the AVR-X3000 lets you stream your favorite tracks from your iPod touch, iPhone and iPad via your wireless home network. You can also access your favorite iTunes tracks from your computer or connect your portable device directly via the front panel USB port. The unit is also DLNA 1.5 compliant for connection to your multimedia PC and is Windows 8 / RT certified.

7 HDMI Inputs;

2 HDMI Outputs

For connection to a broad range of digital sources, the AVR-X3000 features 7 HDMI inputs, including 1 on the front panel that lets you quickly and conveniently connect a camcorder, game console or other HDMI-equipped device. There’s an HDMI output for the main room, and a second HDMI output for another room.

The HDMI functionality is further expanded with HDMI Standby Pass-through, which lets you view a source (such as a cable or satellite box) on your HDTV when the AVR-X3000 is in standby mode, which is ideal for casual viewing.

Compressed

Audio Restorer

Breathe new life into your favorite MP3 tracks with Denon’s Compressed Audio Restorer feature, which analyzes compressed MP3 tracks and actually restores important music detail for a higher fidelity listening experience.

Great Receiver for the Money
This is my 3rd Denon receiver, but I want to qualify none of them have been replaced due to a failing product, in fact it's the exact opposite. 2 of the 3 are still in use and sound as good as ever. As for the AVR-X3000, I bought it to replace my AVR-4806, since it didn't have the necessary outputs for my current home theater. Unfortunately it's not an apples to apples comparison, but I wasn't able to purchase a reference level receiver right now. The first thing you will notice about the X3000, is the lack of buttons on the front of the unit. I find this unit giving a much cleaner appearance, but there is a small learning curve to get things setup, but the on screen prompts do a great job of guiding you through the process. One thing I will recommend, if you have access to a smart device like a tablet or phone, I would recommend downloading the mobile remote control. It makes things much easier to adjust. As for the upgrade process, while it's tames a little longer then I would like (around 30 minutes) again it's a click it and forget it, and the nice thing it will notify you when you need an update. Overall I am very impressed with the receiver, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a solid mid-level server.
