Features - AVR-X2300W

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, optimized 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 theaters 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 app store.

Dolby Atmos

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-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 entertainment 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.

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.

 

This app will allow you to:

  • View the speaker detection results, to check correct installation.
  • View before and after results of the Audyssey calibration, making it easy to identify room problems.
  • Edit the Audyssey target curve for each channel pair to suit your tastes.
  • Adjust the EQ frequency adjustment range for each channel pair.
  • Switch between 2 high frequency rolloff target curves.
  • Enable/Disable midrange compensation to make the vocal region brighter or smoother.
  • Save and load calibration results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent AVR This is a fantastic AV Reciever. I am running it with Monitor Audio Bronze speakers, plus a couple of Monitor Audio install speakers in another room (as a separate zone). The Amp is very easy to set up, and sounds great with both music and movies. I would recommend this amp for the sound quality, number of inputs and the features it comes with. People have criticised the App to control the amp from a phone, but I haven't had any issues with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent AVR but difficult to control the volume. This AVR is really excellent. I like the fact that it switches sources so quickly (as opposed to my previous one). The one issue I have is that when tuning the volume up or down, the volume increases or decreases far too quickly. For example, if the volume is at 20 and I press Vol+ for 2 seconds, it will jump to ~50 immediately and then I have to press the volume key repeatedly to turn it down step by step. This is really annoying. Otherwise, no issues to report. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant piece of kit I bought this three months ago and it is awesome controls all of my needs in respect of the TV and satellite with the added bonus of Internet radionuclide and Spotify etc. I'm still finding things need a course I think ...but very good would recommend it
Date published: 2017-03-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cant fault the great features. I sure did buy this a month ago! It was a great buy and on the whole we are very happy with it. The only downside is that we would have liked it to look even more modern then we could have it out on top rather than put away in a tv hifi cabinet...much like other components. The large knob's are also a little plasticy for my liking but otherwise work fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fantastic sounding AVR Had this about 3 months now and I'm still really pleased with how it sounds. It was plugged into an existing 7.0 speaker setup which it has brought new life to. Not tried the ATMOS aspect yet.....Can't I decided whether to cut holes in my ceiling or stick speakers on top of speakers. It really does sound as good as all the reviews say it does. It's not all great though. When watching 4k TV with AVR on the picture can stutter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up But this a couple of months ago based on its features and price point and I am really pleased that I did. Set up is so easy straight out of the box. I had a demon av receiver many years ago and you needed to be a scientist to set it up back then. Wow how things have changed. Looked at other brands around this price point but all the reviews pointed me in the right direction.

I have an AVR-X2300W receiver, and I have my cable box hooked up to the receiver. Occasionally, after shutting off the TV and receiver (but leaving the cable box on), the receiver will turn itself on. The TV does NOT turn on. Why is this happening?

Asked by: Chuck_987
Hi Chuck_987. I'm sorry for the late answer to your question. If the receiver turns on after turning the TV off, it's possible that it's getting an incorrect power command over HDMI CEC. This can happen even with the TV powered off. To prevent this, try disabling CEC in the HDMI Setup menu, found under the Video section of the menu. Please see link below for reference. Thanks! http://manuals.denon.com/AVRX2300W/NA/EN/GFNFSYkabkahie.php

Asked by: salim
Yes. Any speakers that have been working on your AVR-1613 will have no problem with the AVR-X2300W.

I have just purchased an AVR-X2300W and can't seem to get sound from the Monitor 2 HDMI output to my second ARC compatible TV. How do I get sound through the HDMI to the TV? It has an ARC HDMI connection (which I used) and other HDMI inputs.

Asked by: StanS
In order to pass audio through to your TV, you will need to set HDMI Audio Out to TV. This will make audio pass through to the connected TV's instead of playing through the connected speakers. There is unfortunately no way to have audio play through the speakers and pass through to the TV at the same time. Please see the link below for the settings in the Video Setup menu, under HDMI Setup. http://manuals.denon.com/AVRX2300W/NA/EN/GFNFSYkabkahie.php

I want to connect a projector and an LCD tv to this with the dual hdmi outputs.  I will only run one of the displays at a time in either theater or game mode.  If I use the hdmi 2output for the projector, can I still output the audio to the main speakers?

Asked by: Jrclark2
Yes. If your sources run through the receiver, Monitor 1 and 2 will behave the same way. Both will pass video through to the display, while audio plays through the connected speakers.

I have a Yamaha integrated subwoofer and receiver (SR-301). Will the x2300 be able to power and use my Yamaha unit as a subwoofer?

Asked by: Jimm
The AVR-X2300W has a subwoofer pre-out, which is meant to be used with a powered subwoofer. If your existing subwoofer has a RCA input for LFE then it should work with this AV receiver. Although after looking up your model# it doesn't look like a standard subwoofer. I would suggest contacting the manufacturer to make sure it can be used as a standard powered subwoofer.

Can this receiver output 5.1 and stereo at the same time to accommodate hearing aid devices? My current older Denon model cannot.

Asked by: dkersten
In order to do this, connect an analog audio (red and white) from the source device to the receiver, in addition to the HDMI cable. Connect the wireless transmitter for your hearing aid device to the Zone 2 pre-out on the receiver, and set zone 2 to the desired source. Zone 2 will get stereo audio from the analog connection, while the main zone still gets 5.1 (when available) from the HDMI connection. However, this can result in a delay between the main zone audio and the Zone 2 audio playing through the hearing aid device. Because of this, I will propose another suggestion that sacrifices the 5.1 audio in the main zone but will play both zones in sync. Only connect the HDMI cable from the source device to the AVR, and when you want to use the hearing aid device, enable ALL Zone Stereo (link A below). This will switch the main zone to stereo which allows it to send the audio to zone 2 as well, without a delay. You can also use the sound mode to select Multi-channel stereo for the main zone (link B below), which will play stereo through the front and surround channels. I think this would be the better option as it will not result in an audio delay.

I have this receiver in an enclosed cabinet, what can I use to extend the Wifi rods from the receiver to a place outside the cabinet?

Asked by: bigtraps
I can't recommend a specific product, but there are 3rd party extenders available for this purpose, and also 3rd party WiFi antennas with a wire so that they can be placed outside the cabinet.

Which would be a better receiver (AVR-X2300W or AVR-S930H) for my Definitive Technology speakers: 2 towers BP-8040S, center speaker CS-8040HD, 2 surround back (ProMonitor 1000) and Subwoofer SuperCube 2000. 

Asked by: OscarG
Either one of these models is more than capable of driving your speakers. I would suggest comparing the features to determine which model best meets your needs.
