Description

The Denon AVR-X1800H has a surprising number of premium features, including support for 8K via three 8K-supporting HDMI inputs; a number of next-gen gaming technologies, including Variable Refresh Rate, Auto Low Latency Mode and 4K@120Hz; and network streaming up to 24-bit/192kHz via Wi-Fi, AirPlay 2 and Denon’s comprehensive HEOS multi-room platform.

Features:

  • Enveloping 3D audio
  • Powerful, discrete seven-channel amplifier
  • Advanced 8K HDMI connection
  • HEOS® Built-in technology
  • Simple setup and Audyssey room correction
  • Built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi

In addition to those three 8K/60Hz HDMI inputs (and single ARC/eARC output) are a further three HDMI connections, plus two pairs of RCAs, opticals and a single phono input for audio components and turntables. Bluetooth is on the menu for your wireless playback convenience, too.

Where its affordability compared to many higher-end models shows is in its channel configuration support, as it tops out at 7.2 channels, or 5.2.2 in a Dolby Atmos/DTS:X set-up. Dolby and DTS technologies are integrated to add virtualized height and surround sound effects to stereo and surround content via the two company’s upmixing processing, too.

The AVR-X1800H receiver also accommodates two-source/two-zone audio, as well as Audyssey’s MultEQ XT room-correction technology. Last but not least is an 80-watts-per-channel output across those seven channels, compared to the model-up AVR-X200H’s 90-watts-per-channel delivery across the same number of amplification channels. The pricier Award winner also adds extra RCA inputs, an HDMI output and HDMI 2.1 support, though otherwise there doesn’t appear to be too much else between the two models. If Denon has managed to be consistent in terms of performance, we could well have another excellent, affordable AV receiver on our hands here.
