A Competent Upgrade in a Crowded Field

Posted

Pros: Good features for the money, decent setup, network audio can be played with other video

Cons: Power is only adequate for a mid-grade system, no de-interlacing for older 1080i sets

Home theater upgrades are often an adult "Christmas", usually ending up in a lot of time peering over manuals, tweaking settings, and ignoring "eye-rolls" from your spouse wondering what the big deal is. Few upgrades mean as much to videophiles quite like a receiver upgrade since they affect so much of the total system's performance. But like many of us, receiver upgrades are rare due to cost. Recently I sold an entry level Denon receiver from a few years back to a friend, which allowed me an excuse to replace it. But the receiver in my main home theater was the one that really needed an upgrade. That Denon 3805 was an awesome sounding product in its day...the year 2002. Now over a...

Great receiver for the price. Delivers on sound

Pros: Good sound. GUI interface makes setup fast, and is easy to use. 3YR Warranty!

Cons: Plastic front panel. Limited remote control. No multiple calibration settings

Review Features 7.1 Channels 7x95 Watts (8 ohms) 1080p/4K passthrough, upscales to 4K Audyssey MultEQ XT (Denon Silver) 7 HDMI inputs (1 in front) The Denon X2000 is the lowest priced X-series A/V receiver providing 7.1 or more channels.

Pros: good power, easy setup, simple GUI, smart phone remote app

Cons: None so far

Upgrading from a Denon AVR-2800, I was overdue for an upgrade and glad I waited! Picked this up and had it hooked up in no time. Everything was clearly marked making it simple and it even had an on screen setup for the speakers that walks you through the process. I am using in a 5.1 mode. Clean sound and I really like the up-scaling video and the fact I can route all signals through here now. I got this model to future proof for the 4k video as it can upscale or pass through 4k. I don't like to upgrade frequently which you can tell from my previous receiver which is about 12 years old! This unit is a great value/ feature and is something I won't outgrow in the near future with 4k offered...
