Denon AVR-X2300W

The AVR-X2300W is about as fine an example of a well-priced 7.2 AV receiver as you could hope to find. A well-built and stylish-looking receiver, it supports UHD Blu-ray passthrough via its HDMI 2.0a connectivity, and will connect to numerous sources via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and its traditional AV inputs. Integration into a home theatre is easy, thanks to an informative, user-friendly setup wizard. But it’s the sound performance that really impresses. This is an AV receiver that’s as comfortable handling low-level subtleties as it is room-filling dynamics, and Dolby Atmos decoding is on hand to bring the 3D surround experience from premium cinemas to your home, while DTS:X will arrive as a software update in the near future.
