Denon has taken the wraps off its latest X-Series AV receiver, the AVR-X3600H. This 9.2 channel model is rated IMAX Enhanced out-of-box, and features A full fist of three-dimensional audio formats, including Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, DTS Virtual:X, as well as the latest Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization Technology.

IMAX Enhanced uses the DTS:X codec to deliver wideband immersive audio from encoded content. Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization technology adds virtual height and surround effects to stereo or surround content, to enhance the sense of surround.

The AVR has eight HDMI inputs, with three outputs, and supports 4K 60Hz video, HDR and 4:4:4 Pure Color sub sampling. HDMI inputs include support for Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG, and 4K Ultra HD. Additionally, the AVR-X3600H is also Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) enabled, for Xbox One users. The AVR also has HDCP 2.3 copy protection as standard.

While there's nine channels of amplification, the AVR can process up to 11.2 channels to drive a 7.2.4 speaker setup, when used with additional stereo amplification. Denon rates the AVR-X3600H at 180W per channel.

The AVR-X3600H boasts AKM 32-bit DACs, with high-resolution audio decoding for ALAC, FLAC and WAV at up to 24-bit/192-kHz. It’s also compatible with 2.8/5.6-MHz DSD files.

Integrators might use the technology for two channel of flatbed 5.1 installations. The receiver also features a full suite of video calibration controls, along with ISF Day and ISF Night video modes.

All Denon X-Series AVRs work with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple Siri voice control, and have HEOS Built-In for multiroom music listening.

Other niceties include a phono vinyl input, and main zone TV audio sharing. Room Calibration comes via Audyssey MultEQ XT32. There’s also Apple AirPlay 2 support.

On sale in August, the AVR-X3600H retails for £999.
