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

Overview

Fully loaded with the very latest audio and video technologies, the AVR-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 and – via a future firmware update – will be able to decode DTS:X soundtracks, for complete three-dimensional surround compatibility.

For high-resolution video to match this immersive sound, and to ensure it’s future-proof, AVR-X2300W’s advanced video section is fully compatible with the latest HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all eight 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, the AVR-X2300W is ready for the next generation of Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes and other 4K Ultra HD sources. Advanced video processing provides for 4K Ultra HD full rate, and can upscale the digital SD and HD video to 4K UHD, while the AVR-X2300W is also HDCP 2.2 compliant, a requirement for 4K Ultra HD copy-protected content.

The powerful amplifier section features discrete high current output devices on all seven channels, with each of identical design and delivering 95 watts (8 ohms, 0.08%THD, 20Hz~20kHz). Meanwhile, the high-current design gives the AVR-X2300W has the ability to drive lower impedance 4 ohm speakers on all channels, and multiroom capability means you can enjoy different sources in two different rooms at the same time.

Full wireless connectivity is provided (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth), with dual antennas to ensure robust signal transmission and reception. You can stream your favorite music through AirPlay, Spotify Connect or from local network storage drives, while high resolution audio formats are fully supported from USB storage or network drives for incredible fidelity.

And to keep all this potential under control, the new "Denon 2016 AVR Remote" app can control the receiver from a smartphone or tablet. It’s available from the Apple app store, Google Play, and the Amazon appstore.

Dolby Atmos

Dolby Atmos: 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 soundspace. 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 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-X2300W 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 upmixing: 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-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.

DTS:X

Latest HDMI 2.0a Connectivity; HDCP 2.2 Compatible; ISF-Certified

With no fewer than eight HDMI inputs (including one conveniently located on the front panel), along with dual HDMI outputs, the AVR-X2300W's advanced video section features 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 on every input.

The AVR-X2300W also features HDCP 2.2 compatibility, a requirement for 4K Ultra HD copy-protected content, ensuring ready for the next generation of Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes and other 4K Ultra HD sources. In addition, the video processor can also upscale digital SD and HD video to 4K Ultra HD.

Certified by the Imaging Science Foundation, the AVR-X2300W features a full suite of video calibration controls (for use by an ISF technician), along with ISF Day and ISF Night video modes.

HDMI HDCP2.2

Built-in Bluetooth & Wi-Fi

Featuring Bluetooth and Wi-Fi wireless streaming connectivity, the AVR-X2300W 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 entertaiment of virtually every genre.

AirPlay lets you play your favourite 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-X2300W with your smartphone or table over a network connection: 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 appstore, Google Play or the Amazon appstore, you can control the receiver's operation, as well as accesing 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-X2300W is rated at 95 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-X2300W 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-X2300W 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 smoothes out those annoying volume jumps - especially from loud commercials - for an easier viewing experience.

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 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.

Easy To Use Quick Select Functions

The four Quick Select Function buttons on the front panel and the remote control let you choose your preferred input set-up and sound mode for your favorite sources. You can even set up your favourite Internet radio station on a Quick Select button.

Easy to Setup, Easy to Use

A clear, easy to understand graphical on-screen display guides you through the set-up process to ensure the correct configuration. The exclusive Setup Assistant and the included Quick Start guide together provide easy setup instructions,leading the user step by step to optimise critical settings for the best possible sound and video quality with the rest of your system.

Zone 2 works fine with "tuner." However, when I play a CD on Blu-Ray player I can only get sound in the "main" zone. Nothing comes thru in Zone 2. What am I doing wrong?

Asked by: Budsand
Hi Budsand. The AVR-X2300W is not able to independently play HDMI audio in Zone 2. Assuming your Blu-ray player is connected with HDMI, this would be the reason why your CD's don't play in Zone 2. There are 2 ways to get this working. The easiest way is to enable All Zone Stereo mode. This relies on the main zone playing the audio source in multi-channel stereo and distributing the audio to the zone 2 speakers as well. If you don't want the main zone to play the CD at the same time, you would need to have an analog (red and white) audio connection from the Blu-ray player to the AVR. This audio signal can be played in zone 2. To enable All Zone Stereo mode, begin CD playback in the main zone, press the Option button on the AVR remote, and select All Zone Stereo. Thanks!

I have a couple: When turning up the volume we have to hit around 50 before you hear anything. Is that normal? When you turn on the unit it defaults to TV and not cable. How do you change that? The unit I have is an AVR-X2300W

Asked by: Shane AVR X2300W
Hi Shane. The normal listening level is generally between 50 and 80. Audio may not be audible until around 50. The receiver will automatically switch to the TV Audio input because the TV outputs a command to do so when it's powered on. You can set the receiver to ignore this command in the HDMI setup menu under TV Audio Switching. Please see the link below for reference. Thanks! http://manuals.denon.com/AVRX2300W/NA/EN/GFNFSYkabkahie.php

One more question. Why will the Denon unit not shut off completely when I hit the power button? It goes into sleep mode. Can I set the unit to shut down completely? .

Asked by: Shane AVR X2300W
Hi Shane. When powered off using the remote control or the front panel power button, the unit will enter a standby mode with very little power consumed while remaining in a ready state for quick start up. There is no option to completely power down aside from unplugging the unit from power. You can further reduce power consumption in standby mode by setting Network Control to "Off In Standby" in the network setup menu. Please see the link below for reference.

Is it possible to use this AVR without a center channel? will multiEQ XT automatically compensate with the right and left fronts to create a phantom center? Will this be an acceptable sound experience?

Asked by: Centerless in Seattle
Yes, it's possible to use the system without a center channel speaker. By setting the center speaker to "None" in the speaker setup, center channel audio will be distributed to the front Left and Right, creating a center channel. Using Audyssey MultEQ XT will ensure the best sound experience. Thanks!

I like to watch golf and listen to online music. Can't figure out how to do this with this new system. I know plugging every component into you receiver has a lot of benefits but this doesn't seem to be one is there an adjustment for this?

Asked by: rhamelstone
This is possible using the Video Select function, activated by pressing the Option button on the remote while on the Online Music source. Please see the link below for the full procedure. Thanks! http://manuals.denon.com/AVRX2300W/NA/EN/GFNFSYkmuuscat.php

While connecting my iPod (5th Gen.) to my AVRX2300W and selecting iPod on the remote, it reads "Browse from iPod". It reads DENON on my iPod, but impossible to get any sound out. Any thoughts on why? Not a volume on either (I have tried that)

Asked by: Laurent488
Hi Laurent488. If you change the browse mode you can control from the iPod itself. Please see the web manual link below for details and instructions. Thanks! http://manuals.denon.com/AVRX2300W/NA/EN/GFNFSYzejhmdjp.php#OKNRMLryowoxsd

Does the avrx2300w upconvert from component to hdmi? according to all of these answers it would appear so, but I have one and it came up with an error saying it would not, and I have a screenshot from your website saying it will not....

Asked by: dandanungh
Hello. The AVR-X2300W does not convert component video to the HDMI output. Please see the chart at the web manual link below for reference. Thanks! http://manuals.denon.com/AVRX2300W/NA/EN/RQIFSYsviipmrl.php
