  • Denon AVRX2600H Seven Channel Home Cinema AV Receiver

    "Another year, another superb Denon AV Receiver" say What Hi-Fi? in their 5 star review on the AVRX2600.

    This 2000 series of Denon surround amplifiers has been purveyed by Carlton Audio Visual since the original AVR2000 in 1993. That product marked Denons throwing down the guantlet into the very competitive burgeoning home cinema scene against Yamaha and this model has been at the cusp of Denons offering of sound quality and feature set since.

  • Marantz SR5014 Home Cinema Receiver

    We think this is where you step on the bandwagon of proper Hi Fi kit and decent theatre decoding. It's capable of carrying a respectable stereo performance as well as supporting a wide range of loudspeaker combinations in suround configuration.

    The SR5014 has that slightly retro Marantz aesthetic allied to the ubiquitous Denon Marantz GUI for set up that is utterly straightforward to use once commissioned. 

    This offers a warmer and smoother presentatuion in surround soiund than the competition with a finely nuanced stereo playback with good spatial presentation.

  • Denon AVRX-4700H 8K ready 9.2 channel home theatre receiver ... available August

    It's easy to get cynical about new surround receivers. Let's be frank some of the most advertised and hyped format changes in the all - critical video sections of these amplifiers have turned techno trash heaps of laughably useless facility, how many people do you know who are wearing their 3D glasses to watch TV?

    However there is a particular security in buying a Denon Receiver at this level. You absolutely know that you are getting the most state of art video and audio decoding without missing out on any hidden acronyms but in a 4000 series surround amplifier you also get a really solid multichannel amplification output stage with real dynamics and excellent tonal neutrality.

    It's been a long battle and many other manufacturers have fallen behind on their feature set or degraded output stage quality as they go through their yearly model evolutions ... generally the more mainstream tier one the product the lower the quality of amplification and video chipset allied to the higher the claims made in their brochures.

    Partly this has been due to the commoditisation of the surround sound receiver so that the victor is the one with the lowest price and the most number of watts on the bulk stack of the floor of Walmart or Costco or online at Amazon. Many of these attractively packaged boxes have amplification inside that is literally lower quality than an eighties ghetto blaster

  • Denon AVC-X6500H ... a grandiose home theatre Receiver

    Denon amplifiers always dominate the awards in the Home Cinema amplifier categories and the AVRX6500 is no exception.

    "What Hi-Fi?" on the 6500H

    There is an element of smooth brutality in a large Denon Theatre Receiver, they are clean and conservative and well made, and like the Japanese hitman on steroids they will always get the job done where the competitors tend to fail at a crucial moment. 

    It's a difficult game keeping on top of the home theatre receiver market, but an AVRX-6500H will be reassuring in critical areas of video protocol management, loudspeaker reactive load control, and contemporary featureset allied to longevity.

    The 6500 is the current contender for the Receiver crown in the Denon range, it is one step below the awesome thirteen channel AVC8500 but that unit is literally a bridge too far for many customers I would suggest, not so much for its price as for its sheer set up complexity and imposing transducer requirement. While the 8500 is definitely a unit of choice for a fanatic, the 6500 can come home and be captain sensible as a multi room family sound system while still being able to kill it when that particular piece of music or film sound track needs to be cutting edge.

  • Denon AVC-X8500 thirteen channel flagship surround amplifier... a very long affair

    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 X8500 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 X8500 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 ... note that this will be the first amplifier to offer an 8K video upgrade ...

  • Marantz AV8805 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.
