Denon AVRX2000 A/V Receiver £329.95 (£279.95 with VIP club voucher) @ RicherSounds

Found 22nd Dec 2013
Having looked at getting this amp as an 4K, AirPlay-enabled upgrade to my ageing Onkyo, it seemed quite a good price at £329.95. When I received a VIP club email yesterday morning with a voucher for £50 off any receiver over £300, (bringing this receiver down to £279.95) it convinced me to go for it. If you're not a member of the VIP club then it's free and easy to sign up and you should get the email with the voucher after doing so.

Edit - Looks like someone has kindly posted the voucher here hotukdeals.com/vou…com

Tech summary taken from the Richer Sounds site:

"The AVR-X2000 brings Denon back to the AV receiver top table in this ultra-competitive price category" What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine. 5 star review, tested at £500.

7.1 CHANNELS OF QUALITY SOUND

Featuring a 7.1 output, the Denon AVRX2000 creates a true wrap-around soundstage. With two extra channels, the AVR-X2000 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). As you'd expect from Denon, the AVR-X2000 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 AVRX2000 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.

4K VIDEO SCALING

Going one stage further than conventional 1080p upscaling, this processor has the power to upscale to twice that level! With 4K the horizontal pixel count of 1080p TV increases from 1920 to around 4000 (there are several formats all offering slight variations). With 4K screens beginning to make more of an appearance this year, 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.

AIRPLAY AND ENHANCED NETWORKING

Thanks to its wide range of networking capabilities, the Denon AVRX2000 is much more than a standard AV receiver. Simply connect to your home network using an Ethernet connection and you can access thousands of Internet radio sites via vTuner as well as subscription services such as Spotify 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. Where the AVR-X2000 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.

ALL THE CONNECTIONS YOU NEED INCLUDING 7 HDMI SOCKETS

When it comes to connecting up your system, the Denon AVRX2000 has got all the sockets you need. There are no fewer than seven 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. Alongside this is 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.

EASY TO USE PLUS THE OPTION OF APP CONTROL VIA YOUR PHONE

Thanks to its set-up assistant and an advanced GUI (Graphic User Interface) display, setting up the AVR-X2000 is easier than ever. 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-X2000 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.

Featured-packed and comprehensively equipped yet still easy to use and cleanly styled, the Denon AVRX2000 is an impressive all-rounder.

Gutted, would have gone for this as an upgrade from my 2310 but no coax digital inputs is a deal breaker for me.

looks good, how does this compare to similar price models from sony and onkyo?

Sofa so good

You also used to get a £10 voucher for signing up to the VIP club. Not sure if that still applies but could give you another tenner off.

You should really go for a name brand like Sony. Not this generic brand rubbish.

Better sticking to big brands when it comes to AV equipment. Bush, Alba etc.

Hilarious! I really should get rid of my cheap rubbish Denon AVR3802 and AVR3310 as clearly they are tat. Thanks for the advice.

Are you guys new here?

I am. At least compared to skdotcom

Good find OP. The reviews of this receiver, both pro and user, speak for themselves.

Have just purchased one of these, although paid £315, bit annoying, but that's Christmas for you.

I can't speak with any real authority, but I was considering the Onkyo TX-NR626, and this Denon seemed to get more favourable reviews in comparison, so I went with the AVRX2000. The Sony at this price point is the STR-DN840, but that is somewhat inferior, given the Denon/Onkyo are more in competition with the DN1040, which is still around £400-450 last time I checked. Lack of Wireless might be an issue on this, but I'm only really planning on using this for my blu-ray and media hard drive. Plus I like the clean/minimal look of the Denon.


Heat added anyway.

thank you, i did compare to the 840, compared to the 820 which could be found for £100 at richer clearance it seems to lack features and is a newer model!

im going to hook this up to some logitech z-5450 speakers for the time being if i get this tomorow after work and your comment is helping me buy this

kingmonkey69

Hahah either you're a troll or you haven't got a clue!



LOL I had a Sony HT-DDW890 and then got a AVR-1910 and there was massive difference.
The Sony was OK for TV , Films Game but the AVR-1910 still using now is so much better with music in fact all music sounds really good to me even in 7.1 mode. I have 6X kef carina ii speakers to and it powers these really well.

Seriously, why buy gear like this when my iPad does all this? Well, most of it. Well, some of it. Well, it makes a sound anyway.

Good deal. Might upgrade from my onkyo 608!

I still use my Denon AVR 3802 receiver from 2002, didnt think of upgrading until I realised all new Bluray players have only HDMI out so I cant use my old projector.
Anyone have any idea how would this compare to an older generation receiver?

denon amps rock, avr-1912

not a sony!


Just jesting, good deal! have heat!

Does this....errr.....person even know what "generic" means?

Been looking at getting one after moving my current one to a new games room. Been looking at Onkyos or Yamaha in the past but What Hifi seem to rate this one. Any recommendations of £200 ish speakers for it?

Forgive the amateur question but is there any Airplay-style functionality with Android? I imagine apps are just for remote control, not to play the music on your Android

How can you get the discount online?

Hot, I have now 1911 and wait when x2000 will go below £300. Thanks

Look at the HK AVR 171 - got one last week for £249 at RS - awesome - has 4K too.

I have a Pioneer vsx422 at the moment, however it's unable to throughput one function while doing another.

In my case, playing music via bluetooth adapter (connected via audio in) while on Xbox one (HDMI).

My question is, using Airplay, would this be able to stream audio from my NAS while my xbox is playing through HDMI?

Great amp, very pleased. Thanks OP!

Update your post - Now £249 from richer sounds, possibly use the £10 voucher = £239 Even cheaper

Fantastic deal

This starts 10am Boxing Day and was on the VIP Email today
Edited by: "Yiddo4life" 23rd Dec 2013

What £10 voucher? The one in the VIP email clearly says that it excludes sale items...

You get a £10 voucher on joining the Vip Club on a spend of £100. if they accept it it's £239 else £249

Indeed, I bought my x2000 and 5 years warranty before 6 PM yesterday:(. They sending vouchers to tempt people, and next day they decreases price even more. Bad move. I will call them first to get back difference.

Just wish their packages with speakers would reflect the price drop on the receiver, they don't but good price stand alone

Super deal - Thanks very much! Was looking for some time for something to replace my 2002 denon (Chucky seems wer have the same one!) Was going to pop into Richer sounds but decided it was safer just to buy from Peter Tyson online for same price delivered. Cheers and happy Christmas!
