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.
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.
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.
