Based on an award-winner but with the addition of Bluetooth, twin-HDMI outputs plus more, the Denon AVR-X2100 looks set to be another class leader.

RENOWNED DENON SOUND QUALITY; IN GLORIOUS 7.2 SURROUND

Featuring a 7.2 output, the Denon AVRX2100 creates a true wrap-around soundstage. With two extra channels over 5.1/5.2 models, the AVR-X2100 creates a stronger soundscape through the use of side speakers. Alternatively, you can use the outlets in conventional 5.1 mode and use the extra speaker terminals for a pair of stereo speakers in another room (Zone 2). New to this year's model are twin subwoofer outputs. These allow the use of two subs in your room for both a more powerful and better balanced bass response around the room. As you'd expect from Denon, the AVR-X2100 has also been designed with sound quality as a priority. At the heart of this Denon AV receiver is fully discrete amplification. By using discrete (separate) components rather than an IC chip, superior quality components can be used for a more detailed sound quality. With 95 watts (125 watts at 6 ohms) for each of the 7 channels, the AVRX2100 has ample power to drive most speakers to high levels in all but the largest of rooms. Thanks to a Compressed Audio Restorer feature, the Denon also enhances the sound of lower bit rate audio, such as MP3s and audio from online videos.

FULLY EQUIPPED FOR 4K

With 4K TVs now widely available, the AVRX2100 makes an ideal companion. Equipped with HDMI 2.0, the AVRX2100 offers many technical advantages. These include the ability to handle 50/60 frames per second from 4K signals, 18-bit colour, 32 channel surround sound, plus much more. In conjunction with this new standard of HDMI, the AVRX2100 also offers 4K upscaling. Offering four times the resolution of 1080p, 4K or, Ultra HD, offers greater realism than ever. By equipping this Denon AV receiver with 4K upscaling, Denon have engineered in comprehensive levels of future proofing. In the meantime you can also upscale signals to 1080p for the best image quality with Full HD TVs and projectors. The HDMI sockets also allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be turned on.

BLUETOOTH, AIRPLAY, DLNA AND BUILT-IN WI-FI FOR THE COMPLETE NETWORKING EXPERIENCE

Now featuring Bluetooth and built-in Wi-Fi, the Denon AVRX2100 is better equipped for networking than ever. With Bluetooth connectivity it's easy to connect up to eight compatible devices and stream music wirelessly. Connect up your smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC and Mac and stream your music library or favourite music streaming services with ease. Where the AVR-X2100 really scores over many rivals is in also offering Apple's AirPlay wireless music system. Simply download the necessary app and stream your iTunes music library from your iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad to the Denon. With other AirPlay products available, this could also make the start of a cost effective multi-room system. Rounding this class-leading network connectivity, the AVRX2100 comes with Wi-Fi, Internet radio and DLNA. Simply connect to your home network using an Ethernet connection or Wi-Fi and you can access thousands of Internet radio sites via vTuner as well as subscription services such as Spotify Connect and last.fm. Additionally, this Denon wonder is DLNA 1.5 compatible, letting you stream from other sources such as your laptop or NAS drive.

ALL THE CONNECTIONS YOU NEED INCLUDING 8 HDMI INPUTS AND DUAL OUTPUTS

With more HDMIs than ever, the Denon AVRX2100 now competes with the best in its class. There are no fewer than eight HDMI inputs for full compatibility with your complete system. They're also compatible with 3D and ARC (Audio Return Channel) for a less cluttered cable connection. One of the HDMI sockets is mounted at the front of the receiver, making it ideal for connecting an occasional device such as camcorder or games console. In addition to this, the AVR-X2100 now has twin HDMI outputs - ideal for running both a TV and projector, for example. There is also an iPod/iPhone Digital USB connection. This allows plug-and-play flexibility without the need for a further docking station. The sound quality will be better than many docks, too, as you're using the processing power of the Denon rather than the docks. Finally, for music in another room, you can choose from active or passive Zone 2 outputs.

EASE OF USE

Thanks to its set-up assistant and an advanced GUI (Graphic User Interface) display, setting up the AVR-X2100 is easy. With the higher spec MultEQ XT technology it's also better, too. The XT version of this automatic measuring and set-up device features extra modes and offers the option to measure from eight points rather than the more basic version's six. The Denon AVR-X2100 also features the option of an app based control. Available free for either Apple or Android devices, the control app lets you use your smartphone or iPad as a clear and comprehensive controller.

Packing in better connectivity and more features than ever but with the same class-leading sound quality, the Denon AVR-X2100 is the complete package!

Do some research before criticism of the brand.. Denon has a far better sound than most on the market.

Obviously you did not get the joke which has been going on HUKd about AV receivers for over 5 years

I swapped out a AVR-1907 for this amp and it's a good upgrade, sound quality is not a big jump but the 2100 has so many more features and more power, I'd go for it :)

Not listened to a 1050 but I've got a 1040 and it's a good amp, I just prefer the sound out of a Denon amp though. The Sony sounds a little to "bright" to my ears, you might prefer the sound though, so go along to your local Richer Sounds and ask for a demo, that's the only way to tell...

Why does AV gear always boast upscalling? Surely when you pass a SD signal to a HD TV it is up scaled by the TV anyway? Or 1080 to a 4k TV will have to be upscaled to fill the screen.

Would the upscalling hardware and software be of better quality than built into TVs?

Nice avr :)

Nice to already see this years crop of £500 receivers coming in at less than £300...they always follow this pattern, I expect to see Yamaha's RX-V677 to be coming in at under £300 soon (already down to around £330)

It is best anyone waits until around March onwards if it follows (most likely) the usual pattern, then you will be seeing the likes of Yamaha, Denon, Sony and ermm Onkyo receivers for around £250....this will pave the way throughout the spring/summer months until around August time next years receivers start going on sale.....

Then it all happens again.

Heat added, really nice to see a £500 receiver drop to this sort of price this early.

If you really want to donate heat, buy Onkyo. I always have to laugh at this 'mod' someone on av forums has on top of their Onkyo receiver....

According to What Hi-Fi, the Sony wins that one (and it is their AV Receiver of the Year 2014). This was their verdict on this Denon:

"Denon’s AVR-X2100W is a beautifully made amp with plenty of reasons to like it – not least for its great user experience and well-balanced, detailed character across the frequency range. However, its relative dynamic hesitance when things get exciting and its lack of the sofa-shaking bass that some of its competitors offer means it’s a solid four for this Denon.

I am a Yamaha person myself so couldn't give you personal experience. Hope that helps.

That is not an easy question to answer, and is akin to whether your onboard receivers DAC is better than your audio device into it.....

Depends on the quality of the TV upscaler, that is going to be dependent on your TV model.

Likewise for me, both my Marantz and Yamaha receivers whilst having a reasonable DAC in them, the difference in sound quality from my NAD CD Player connected via digital coaxial compared to analogue is quite noticeable. The NAD clearly has the superior sound using its integral DAC.

I myself am now a Yamaha convert, after trying them for the first time with last years RX-V675 I am really pleased with the build and sound quality. After having a borked Marantz receiver, an engineer whom I phoned about fixing prices actually gave me his advice recommended Yamaha too as the most reliably built.

Just to add further to what I said (new post in case I edited and it got overlooked)....

Unless your TV has audio return HDMI (ARC) to your receiver, then your HDMI devices would always go through the receiver anyway for audio purposes, most (if not all) receivers have HDMI passthrough whereby you can toggle off the upscaling and let the TV do it, therefore effectively turning them into just a HDMI switchbox for video whilst processing the audio as PCM or Bitstream :)

I love the fact it's got bluetooth for streaming musing off the phone. Not many amps int his price range do. I'd love to get the sony 1050 for the apparently better sound but I do not think it has bluetooth.

Early to market (although not released) they have surprisingly already announced the 1060 which not only does bluetooth, but NFC onetouch listening.

And the 1050 does do bluetooth, in fact I am not 100% sure but I think all the major mid-range £500 receivers from the likes of Sony, Yamaha, Denon and Onkyo do on this years models.

Added heat and just ordered one.

Peter Tyson are doing the same price but with a 3yr extended warranty + QED Hdmi cable free.

Called RS, guy on phone gave me a free 5 year extended warranty but wanted £10 for a HDMI cable. Not bothered about cable as they are pretty much standard and a cheap one will work just as welll as far as I know.

Only thing was, they will not deliver to my work address until they send me a letter, I call them with code printed on letter and then they will deliver to my work. 2-3 days more but I can live with that.

Richersounds don't know how to cut and paste. There is no Denon A/V Receiver with the model number they have on their website. There is however, a AVR-X2100W

The Yamaha doesn't, they want to charge you another £50 for their Bluetooth dongle on the 677. :{
