  • Denon AVR-X580BT

    The new 'entry level' Denon Receiver will suprise you with how much is packed into this box.

    Yes of course it cuts some corners and doesn't offer the power and features of their higher end units. But pair this up with some efficient speakers like Monitor Audio Bronze Series or the Acoustic Energy AE100 series and you'll be thoroughly entertained with a capable, do-it-all system.

  • Denon AVR-X1800, 7 channels of surround sound value

    For many family entertaining areas having good for movies and the occcaisional big screen gaming is important but they're not willing to spend thousands on an amplifier to deliver the very best. 

    This is where the AVR-X1800 is perfect. It has the flexibility to do either one room with 7 channels (two channels of dolby atmos!) or a traditional 5 channel system with a zone 2 on some outside speakers or set up in another room.

    All this with the power to run even some quite challenging loads. Ie. inefficient speakers!

    Music streaming is built-in and ready to go along with Bluetooth and a plethora of other features. For a full feature list see the official Denon website here

    All the family fun without a hefty pricetag!

  • Denon AVR-X2800H

    The AVR-X2800H is, like its predecessor, a class defining unit. This is a solid amp with features galore.

    The AVR-X2700 was so good and so popular, they haven't changed much with the new version. But they have improved the sound quality. Bigger broader soundstage and a nicer high frequency sound.

  • Marantz Cinema 70s

    This is the brand new slim receiver by Marantz. The Cinema 70s has 7.2 channels with a whole suite of 8K capable HDMI inputs. These will be most useful for gamers where their 4K function is amped up to 120Hz refresh rate with full pass through.

    We think the new Marantz look is so so fine. But much has changed under the cover as well as on the outside.

    The whole range has undergone a revamp and they are even adding some premium models for the more discerning customers.

    See the Marantz US official website for more information here

    Please note that the Australian version of this unit does not have a Tuner on board.

  • Denon AVC-X3800H nine channel cinema amplifier newness ...

    The Denon AVC-X3800H is a game changer in the AV market place. The biggest and most exciting change for me with this unit is the capability of having 4 subwoofers! 

    Not only do they add the extra two sub-outs they've upgraded the processing faculty around the subwoofers. So you can choose to put all four subs in mono, that's pretty standard...but you can also choose to match those subs up with Front Right, Front Left, Rear Right and Rear Left speakers!! EQs and chanel adjustment can be made individually to each pair of speakers and sub to make this a worthwhile exercise.

    At the moment the only unit we have that truly capable of pulling off more than 2 subwoofers is the Trinnov Altitude 16 that retails for $25,995! So to have something that gets even remotely close to that in the sub $3K price range is truly spectacular.

    There's an optional upgrade with the AVC-X3800H to have the high end Dirac Live room optimisation system installed. A worthwhile upgrade especially if you're going to add two extra Subwoofers.

    But all of this really equates to a unit that will live with you for many upgrades to come. I feel that Denon is demonstrating a move to offering upgrade paths, where it can, rather than a churn and burn consumerism.

  • Marantz Cinema 50

    The brand new AV receiver from Marantz. With 9.4 channels, yes that's right, 4 Subwoofer channels! 

    To pair the 4 channels of subwoofer preouts there's a serious amount of extra processing going on to cope with the possibility of 4 subwoofers each individually matched to a separate speaker. There exists also the opportunity to have each sub output the same mono signal. Very cool!

    It also boasts an upgrade to the Dirac calibration system as well as the usual Marantz Audyssey dynamic EQ system ready to go. 

    A beefy amp that packs a lot into its chassis. A premium amplifier for home theatre enthusiasts.

  • Denon AVC-X4800H cinema amplifier ... it's a keeper

    Another exciting new offering from Denon as the replacement of the AVC-X4700.  Actually it dosn''t really look that exciting, in fact it looks exactly the same as the other Denon'amplifiers from the last thirty three years that we have been selling them. The good thing ... the really good thing about this do everything amp, is that it carries that cusp of technologies that will carry a potential owner for another ten or fifteen years of ownership . Without having to replace an amp every fifteen years because it has outdated HDMI switching, or a urine weak power supply that breaks down at every voltage surge. This is an amp that will go the distance.

    This unit is crafted in the Japanese factory of Denon, their premium factory in Shirakawa. The AVC-X4700H did not have this luxury and the move over to Japan prompted a complete redesign of the unit's internal structure. They now use a Monolithic Amp Layout as opposed to a vertical layout. Solid heat sinks and a more discreet amplifier module design for much superior clarity and definition are instantly recognisable in this new design. See the attached images of the internal amp module output stages of the 4700 opposed to that of the 4800.

    This unit will also come with the option to have 4 subwoofers each independently controllable, as with the AVC-X3800H. And the optional addition of Dirac live as well.

  • Marantz Cinema 40, 9.4 channel AV Receiver

    The brand new, top of the range Marantz integrated AV receiver is in a class of its own. Capable of some of the most advanced processing available in the residential home theatre market along with some serious grunt in amplification but with a warmth and musicality to the sound that is special for Marantz.

    Previously the kind of EQ, bass control and room management technologies that the Cinema 40 has, were only present in units over the $15K mark and that was $15K for a preamp. Cinema 40 has capacity for 4 subwoofers and the suite of processing to go with it, that means your subwoofers won't cancel each other out. Yes this is often the problem with simply adding more subwoofers. Once you hit 2, subwoofers on opposing ends of the room generally create inverted sine waves that will cancel the effect of the existing subwoofers.

    Interestingly, this unit also comes with the option to upgrade to Dirac Live, opening up another level of EQing possibilities previously unheard of at this pricepoint.

  • Denon AVC-X6800 eleven channel cinema amp source of pure power

    The brand new Denon AVC-X6800h is here. With all the features of the new Denon range including four (4!) independently controllable subwoofers, the latest in Audyssey room correction software ready to go and options for Dirac Live to be loaded.

    Not only that, this is a unit that is made in the Japanese factory. This means better componentry and better quality testing. You can feel the difference in a Japanese made unit when you take it out of the box for the first time. They are more solid with less give in the chassis, there is no greasiness on the metal finish, the knobs rotate precisely and smoothly, the buttons have a solid and confident tactility.

    The AVC-X6800 has a cleaner sound, more power and more grip than the smaller models. It's all about the current delivery and ability to handle the reactive impedance load imposed on the output stage by good quality loudspeakers.

    The point of the photographs in front of the Hume Dam in full font is that this unit has a large reservoir of power, and that it is capable of delivering high peak current on demand with very pure low distortion power.

    This series of Denon amps are famed for their tonal neutrality and their ability to meet the peak headroom demands of complex and dynamic cinema soundtracks and musical pieces.

    The AVCX6800 has pure preamp mode wherein the internal amplifiers can be fully disconnected from the preamp stage, this allows for the cleanest preamp out operation up to 4v rms.

    For more information follow this link to the Denon official Website

    Herewith below an excellent video description of the 6800 from the US product trainer:

  • Anthem MRX740 11.2 seven channel home theatre amplifier

    Anthem is "the other woman" of the surround sound Receiver market and is a quality alternative to the tier one Denon/Marantz/Yamaha products. This is the first integrated Receiver available of the new 40 series and it has the latest version of their acclaimed ARC Genesis room correction circuitry. The Bass management is considered the best in the business. The MRX740 is seven x 100 watts ... approximately ... and it's output stage is able to be rematrixed so that you can put a power amp on the main channels and use the internal channels for the surround speakers. This is a great amp for growing into a full blown 11.2 Atmoa speaker system.

  • Denon AVC-X8500HA 13 Channel Flagship

    Denon have this thing ... when they do a surround amp range they like to make a generational statement that throws down the gauntlet to other manufacturers.

    The AVC X8500ha is this generations gauntlet ...

    We have had a long affair with top of the range Denon amplifiers. We built our surround sound space in the local marketplace with the very first Denon AVR2000 Receiver and then hammered it in with the AVCA1 THX amplifiers. We still have customers out there who own these amps twenty five years later using the 5.1 multichannel input running from an external decoder in a Blu Ray Player. The AVC X8500HA will be for those discerning consumers that are able to purchase a surround sound amp that will keep their cinema going for longer and better.

  • Marantz AV8805a Dolby Atmos Surround Sound preamplifier with MM8077 Power Amplifier

    It's a terrible thing to have a high end single box surround receiver that becomes outdated due to changes in HDMI and audio codecs. Often that means discarding a perfectly good multichannel receiver because of changes to digital encoding practices. Turning what was five years ago your pride and joy into 15KGs of consumer electronic waste looking for a cosy grave in Northern Suburban landfill ...

    Then you buy the replacement model from the same brand and you discover that while it ticks all the feature boxes with bluetooth, wi-fi, dlna. snaggle waggle ... unfortunately it dosn't sound as good with music and dynamic theatre as the model you've just discarded.

    So the first reason you buy a Surround pre and Power combination like this one is to get off the aforesaid Hamster wheel of Built In Obsolescence and waste.

    The second reason is that it sounds fantastic.

    Home Theatre Review on the AV8805

    Home Theatre Review on the MM8077

    When you graduate to a pre and power amplifier like this you have the best of both worlds. The very sensitive low noise circuitry of the preamplifier and processor is separated from the high current demand of the power amplifier and is able to do its job of recovering all the residucal fine detail of the signal to the best possible degree.

    Meanwhile the power amplifier can be unleashed from the sensitive circuits of the pre-amplifier where its mass of current can be detrimental. Liberated and with massive current reserves, the power amplifier is able to grip and modulate the reactive load of the loudspeakers with unmitigated force complying with the complex demands of the sinal produced at the preamplifier stage.
