The AVR-X4300H features a sophisticated power amplifier section with all 9 channels configured identically, employing discrete high current capable power transistors. Each channel is rated at 125 watts (8 ohms, 20Hz~20kHz, 0.05%THD) and all channels are able to safely drive lower impedance speakers (down to 4 ohms). Denon’s intelligent ECO mode adjusts power consumption according to signal level, and there’s an on-screen Eco Mode display that lets you see in real time how much energy ECO mode is saving. Most remarkably, the 9 channel amplification allows for setting up a 7.1.2 or 5.1.4 3D experience without the need of an external amplifier. By the use of an external amplifier the setup can get extended to 7.1.4 as the AVR-X4300H features 11.2channel processing. If not in use for 3D audio the integrated amplifiers can get assigned to drive another pair of speakers in a second audio zone running a different source than the main room.
A single subwoofer can give an uneven bass response at the main listening position, with audible peaks and dips. The AVR-X4300H provides for two subwoofers: positioned in different locations, they will even out the low frequencies, for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area. It also provides Audyssey Sub EQ HT to give individual tailoring of each subwoofer via digital signal processing.
