DENON HAS A NEW FLAGSHIP AND IT’S AVAILABLE NOW

Denon is introducing the AVC-X8500H AV Amplifier, a 13.2 channel amp that features Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro 3D surround decoding, along with 13 channels of built-in amplification.

The long-awaited new flagship (their last AV amplifier was the AVC-A1HDA, released back in 2009) from Denon  is being heralded as “the industry's first true 13.2 channel receiver.”

It also supports the top next-gen audio formats, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro 3D. Furthermore, it plays nice with Amazon Alexa voice control, Apple AirPlay, HEOS multi-room, and more.

Boasting 1500-watts per channel, the AVC-X8500H is hand-assembled in small batches in Japan.

The wireless networked 13.2 channel AV Amplifier will work at the centre of a whole-home system. You can play music in every room from a variety of sources, including high-resolution DSD (2.8 and 5.6 MHz), FLAC, ALAC and WAV files.

The AVC-X8500H features IP control capability for integration with third-party control devices and Control4 SDDP (Simple Device Detection Protocol) certification.

An RS-232C serial port is available to directly connect to external home automation and control equipment, and an IR remote control input on the rear panel enables remote control compatibility with other components in the home theatre system.

The Denon AVC-X8500H also is fully compatible with the latest HDMI connectivity and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all eight HDMI inputs and triple HDMI outputs.

The amplifier supports 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Colour sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR), 21:9 video, 3D and BT.2020 pass-through support.

The Denon AVC-X8500H is available now for € 3,699 / £3,299 in black or silver.
