7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD Network AV Receiver with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Overview

Experience state-of-the-art surround sound with the AVR-X1300W 7.2 channel Dolby Atmos AV receiver, which delivers breathtaking immersive surround sound with today's advanced movie soundtracks. Bring home the same revolutionary 3D surround sound used in premium movie theaters, with the ability to create an overhead soundfield to deliver a dramatically expanded sonic space. What's more, a future firmware update will enable the AVR-X1300W to decode DTS:X soundtracks, for full compatibility with all current 3D sound formats.

The AVR-X1300W is futureproof, too, thanks to an advanced video section fully compatible with the latest HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all six of its HDMI inputs. With 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 on every input, the AVR-X1300W is ready for the next generation of Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes and other 4K Ultra HD sources.

And it has the sonic firepower to deliver cinema-sized thrills: the powerful amplifier section features discrete high current output devices on all seven channels, each of which is configured identically and rated at 80 watts per channel (8 ohms, 0.08%THD, 20Hz~20kHz). That generous current also means the AVR-X1300W has the ability to drive even lower impedance 4ohm speakers on all channels.

Meanwhile the AVR-X1300W's built-in multiroom capability you can enjoy two different sources in different rooms at the same time, so you could watch a movie in superb surround sound in one room while another member of the family enjoys great-sounding music in another part of the house.

Full wireless connectivity is provided by both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, with dual antennas to ensure robust signal transmission and reception, and you can stream your favorite music through AirPlay, or from Spotify Connect or local network storage drives. High-resolution audio playback, all the way up to 192kHz/24bit and DSD5.6, delivers incredible fidelity.

Using the AVR-X1300W is simple, too: the brand-new "Denon 2016 AVR Remote" app is available from the Apple app store, Google Play, and the Amazon app store, allowing you to control the receiver from your smartphone or tablet.

Dolby Atmos

Dolby's revolutionary Dolby Atmos technology dispenses with the channel-based surround sound coding used for decades, in favor of advanced object-based coding, giving the sound designer the ability to place sounds precisely anywhere in the three-dimensional soundspace. Now you can enjoy this award-winning technology at home with the AVR-X1300W, which features the ability to connect a 5.1 surround sound speaker system and 2 additional overhead speakers or 2 additional Dolby Atmos elevation speakers for the ultimate home theater experience.

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: for more info, please visit www.denon.com/dtsx.)

The AVR-X1300W also features Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding and other Dolby Digital and DTS audio decoding and processing. 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.

DTS:X

High Resolution Audio

Discover the incredible fidelity of high resolution audio tracks with the AVR-X1300W'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 track. Play them from memory devices via the front panel USB, or from network sources – the AVR-X1300W will also play lossy file types such as MP3.

DTS:X

Latest HDMI 2.0a Connectivity; HDCP 2.2 Compatible

The AVR-X1300W's six HDMI inputs, including one conveniently located on the front panel, all confiorm to 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. The advanced video section also features HDCP 2.2 compatibility, a requirement for 4K Ultra HD copy-protected content, ensuring the AVR-X1300W is ready for the next generation of Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes and other 4K Ultra HD sources.

HDMI HDCP2.2

Built-in Bluetooth & Wi-Fi

Featuring Bluetooth & Wi-Fi wireless streaming connectivity, the AVR-X1300W is equipped with an advanced dual antenna system for robust and error-free streaming even in congested urban environments. Connected to the Internet through your home Wi-Fi network (or with a hard-wired connection via the RJ-45 Ethernet LAN port), it allows you to enjoy your favorite tracks from streaming music services such as Pandora, Spotify Connect and Sirius XM (depending on local availability). You can also choose from thousands of Internet radio stations from around the world, and enjoy music and speech entertainment of virtually every genre.

AirPlay lets you play your favorite tracks wirelessly from your iPod touch, iPhone or iPad, and via network streaming you can listen to music files stored on your home PC or Mac, or NAS devices.

The all-new Denon 2016 AVR Remote App lets you control the AVR-X1300W with your smartphone or tablet: it's available for both Apple iOS and Android devices.

Denon 2016 AVR Remote

With the free "Denon 2016 AVR Remote" for iOS and Android, available from the Apple app store, Google Play or the Amazon appstore, you can control the receiver's operation, as well as accessing its set-up menu, from a smartphone or tablet. The app also gives you quick access to the receiver's status display, option menus, Denon Blu-ray player control, and an online owner's manual for your convenience, while the new queue management feature means you can browse and add new tracks to the playlist on the fly.

Powerful 7 Channel Discrete Amplifier with Eco Mode

Featuring high current discrete power output devices on all seven channels, the AVR-X1300W is rated at 80 watts per channel (8 ohms, 20 Hz~20 kHz, 0.08% THD). 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.

Dual Subwoofer Outputs

A single subwoofer can give an uneven bass response at the main listening position, with audible peaks and dips. The AVR-X1300W provides for two subwoofers: positioned in different locations, they will even out the low frequencies, for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area.

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 setup menu, and the Quick Select 'one-touch' presets.

Audyssey Silver

As the first AV receiver manufacturer to embrace Audyssey's advanced DSP audio algorithms, Denon brings to the AVR-X1300W the Audyssey Silver suite of DSP functions, which includes MultEQ XT, Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume.

Audyssey MultEQ XT automatic room acoustic measurement and correction system uses athe supplied microphone and a test-tone sequence to match your speakers to your room's acoustics, giving the smoothest, most natural tonal balance. The MultEQ XT system here provides greater filter precision for the main and satellite speakers, with eight times the resolution of the base MultEQ system, at for up to 8 measurement locations to ensure the best sound for the whole family, not just one ideal 'sweet spot'.

Audyssey Dynamic EQ uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to continually adjust tonal balance to deliver full range sound, even at lower volume levels; Audyssey Dynamic Volume smooths out those annoying volume jumps – especially from loud commercials – for an easier viewing experience.

Multi-Source/Multi-room

With the AVR-X1300W 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 7 channel surround sound in the main room with stereo in the second.

Convenient USB Port

The convenient front panel USB port provides a digital connection from music from your iPod touch, iPhone and iPad, while also charging the device. You can also connect a USB drive and listen to files from MP3 all the way up to high resolution DSD (2.8/5.6 MHz), and lossless FLAC lossless (up to 24-bit/192-kHz).

Color Coded 4-Way Speaker Terminals

The high quality multiway speaker terminals handle a number of cable terminations including banana plugs, and are also color-coded for correct first-time hook-up; color-coded speaker cable labels are provided.

Audyssey MultEQ Editor App

The latest Denon audio video products use Audyssey MultEQ for simple, accurate set-up and calibration of your system to the room in which it's used. But now you can go further with the Audyssey MultEQ Editor app, going "under the hood" to view and adjust settings for detailed tuning – allowing you to customize the sound more precisely to the specific problems in your room, and tailor the sound to your personal preferences. With this comprehensive app, you can harness the power of Audyssey MultEQ to take total control of the way your home cinema sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Massive improvement I have been using a Onkyo amp for the past 9 years and enjoyed its sound quality very much....Until I bought this Denon last week on a whim while in Best Buy. All I can say is WOW...I am impressed and glad I did. It rreally brings out so much more in my Klipsch subwoofer and Boston Acoustics speakers. Excellent choice and a big thanks for the recommendation from the Best Buy rep.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of features, great price but few rough edges My first AV receiver and generally does not disappoint given the multitude of connections and great sound quality. However, I wish there a few features included, such as having individual volume levels for each mode instead of just a master volume, or the option to have different audio/sources (e.g. watch TV while listening to online radio/bluetooth audio)...and apart from that, the HDMI connections with my amazon fire TV goes a bit crazy sometimes (changing the sound source by itself and I have to select the source manually before it is right)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good sound buggy wifi My X1300 sounded good paired with my Def Tech 9020's. It was acceptable power for the Def's, but really was the minium I would go to fire them up with. Very bad Wi-Fi issues. I had to return due to horrible connectivity issues. I upgraded to Marantz SR5011. I'm glad I did. Well worth the extra $200. The Marantz has flawless Wi-Fi and powers my speakers up more than adequately. Denon makes an alright product, but parent company Marantz is the better choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice beginner to intermediate receiver. Was between this and another brand, but the design and a good online deal ultimately won me over. No regrets so far, once you pass a learning curve, you can enjoy a great sounding receiver packed with features. The app needs work, keeps crashing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sollid piece of equipment Loaded with features, makes a great match with some Canton speakers. It would have been great to have a better conection for the optical cable, someting with a retention feature: no matter how expensive is the cable, it gets out very easy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes Home Cinema like the real thing. got this as a replacement for an older Denon AVR. It is a big improvement. Only thing missing is HEOS capability.... that would make it 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Receiver I find this x-1300w smooth and rich audio. I am happy with the product but, still happier if there is a little price drop.

can i add my amazon music account to the receivers "online music" category?

Asked by: Deeznuts
Hello. It is not possible to add Amazon music to the online music section of the AVR-X1300W. However, you can play your Amazon music on you phone or tablet, and stream it to the receiver using Bluetooth.

I am having trouble with set up Blu-ray remote. I want to use Denon app to control 4k Samsung Blu-ray. I can not figure out how to pair, ir control, or sync the Blu-ray with Denon 1300. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in adv.

Asked by: Bob27
Hi Bob. The Denon remote app is not able to control your Samsung Blu-ray player. It can only control a Denon player which is connected to your receiver using HDMI.

Recently got an AVRX1300W and set up ok.. Wanted to connect an external power amp to the Zone2 pre-outputs on the extreme left of the rear panel, as shown on the manual. But these are not there on my unit ! What gives ?

Asked by: AdrianJ
Hello. You're on the US website, and our products may have some slight differences with products sold in other regions of the world. It's possible that the Australian model does not have the same connectors as the US model. If you're 100% certain it's an AVR-X1300W, then this would seem to be the case.

I'll be setting up my 1300W soon with the new Oppo UDP-203 4k Blu-ray player and I'm wondering what the difference is between the HDMI 2 (DVD/Blu-ray) and HDMI 4 (Blu-ray) inputs? Is one preferred over the other for a 4k player? 

Asked by: csdrich
Just my experience, I had crashing when I connected 4k Samsung to dvd/Blu-ray. They thought crashing was due to ECO mode. I switch to Blu-ray only and have never had problem since. I personally think 4k data crashed dvd HDMI...

Hi, I am planning to connect the Jbl Cinema 610 5.1 speakerset to the avr-1300w. The specs says sub max 60 amplifier power. Is the Denon providing 80w on each output including the sub? Do you think this combination will work nicely? Thanks 

Asked by: Martinvdm
Hello. The receiver does not provide power to the subwoofer output. There is a subwoofer pre-out which is meant to be connected to a powered subwoofer, which would have its own built-in amp to power the subwoofer. You can use any powered subwoofer.

Hi, I just bought the Denon AVR-X-1300. My question is can I hook up an external amp and where do I plug it into? Thanks for your help. Robert Jackson

Asked by: Monte2win
Hi Robert. The AVR-X1300W only has pre-out terminals for Zone 2. You can connect an external amp there to drive speakers in another area of your house. There are no connections for an external amp in the main zone.

Does the 1300 have a graphical volume overlay through HDMI on a TV? In other words, can I see what volume level is at on the TV if the receiver is hidden away?

Asked by: TommyH
Hi TommyH. Yes, this unit does have a volume status display which will show up on the TV, as long as the video source is not 4k. It will not superimpose the volume display on a 4k input source.

Where do I connect my Dolby atmos speakers? In the spot labeled surround and my rear speakers in the apt labeled surround rear? 

Asked by: Armyguy27639
Hello. The Dolby Atmos speakers would connect to the Surround Back/Assignable terminals. The amp assign should be set to Front Dolby, or Rear Dolby depending on where they're positioned.
