CES 2013 Receivers unvieled?

New receivers introduced at CES 2013?

I searched and couldn't find anything about new announced receiver models from the major mfr's, like:
Denon, Onkyo, Yamaha, Pioneer...

If so, anybody point me towards rundown and previews?

OR do the receivers and speakers generally not get any previews like the tv's, ect at CES shows?

Thanks

I have been looking for this information as well. So I look forward to what people have to say on this one.

Harman Kardon seems to have announced their 2700 and 3700 receivers. They still seem to be lacking any room equalization, though. hhttp://www.engadget.com/2013/01/04/harman-ces-2013-speakers-receivers/

Anthem had their D2V-3D and PS5 on display. I'm not sure they're really new, though. http://cave.hometheaterhifi.com/profiles/blogs/2013-ces-show-report-robert-kozel (~ 1/3 of the way down)
Bryston and Parasound had stuff, too (just below Anthem in report above)
Sherwood's R-807 receiver was shown. See http://cave.hometheaterhifi.com/profiles/blogs/2013-ces-show-report-part-2-robert-kozel (~1/3 of the way down)
Pictures of new NAD and Cambridge (Azur 351R) equipment are about 2/3 of the way down.
JBL Synthisis was showing a new reference surround processor. (about 9/10 of the way down).
Both blog pages have lots of pictures of outrageously expensive high-end equipment to drool over.

But they do. They have Harman's EzSetEQ which does do some EQing.

You are correct. Sorry: my oversight. Unfortunately, however, I can't seem to find any technical details about it. frown.gif I guess if you don't say what it does, nobody can complain that it doesn't do it right. wink.gif

I got the feeling from the overall CES coverage that either there wasn't a ton of AVR (or HT audio) news to be reported form CES, or everyone was busy looking at the 4K displays. Overall, the bulk of the audio news was headphone related. I guess it's an effect of the mobile world we live in, but HT (other than 4K-related) seems to be relegated to press releases outside the big-event news cycles.

HK was always very tight-lipped about their EQ

I've been calling around for best pricing on either a Denon 2313Ci or 3313Ci. Two of the dealers I've called said their availability to order is getting tougher as the new models will be getting ready to ship soon. Just like what was posted here, I have seen ZERO info on new receivers.

I'm kind of in a sticky here as I'm in the market for a receiver but, I know new models are just around the corner which means big discounts for the xx13's. I'm afraid I'll get a decent price today and tomorrow they'll drop significantly......

I'd guess that D&M, like Microsoft, underestimated the demand for those models. After all, if you can't find them now, there certainly won't any available at close-out prices later.

A newer, better(?) device is always about to be announced. Get what you want when you can afford it. If you expect a lower price later, remind yourself that the additional money that you spend now pays for the additional time you'll be enjoying it. In this case, it'll be at least several months.

FWIW, a replacement for the 4520 is not likely to be announced until summer of 2014 at the earliest, but I'm guessing that's a little out of your price range.

Actually, affording what ever I want isn't the problem.. I'm just tight and prefer to put my money where it matters! LOL Either the 2313 or 3313's features fit my needs. Also, I'm waiting on a new custom Amish made solid cherry entertainment center that has somewhere between 1 - 3 weeks before completion/delivery.... Thats when I'll be making a move regardless of current pricing.....

Surprisingly, a few of the online dealers quoted me MSRP today which shocked me. It could be supplies are tight. I probably roll the dice, wait and see what happens. We just saw $299 pricing on 1913's which was a good bit off MSRP. I'm betting the rest will follow soon. One thing for sure, I won't hesitate when I see a price I want because supply may not hold up for long.....

What is D&M or who is it?

D+M Group - Denon & Marantz

AFAIK, D&M was not present this year and an official announcement on the new Denon and Marantz models is usually released in April with the lower models shipping very soon thereafter. Also note that most Denon resellers sell at MSRP; however, if you call them some will offer a discount up to 25% or more (eg. avscience.com, Electronics Expo, Paul's TV, J&R, etc.) although it also depends on availability. D&M likely doesn't want a lot of the current year's inventory available so they can be discontinued to make room for the newer models.

Give avscience a call about the 2313. I called them last week about it and they quoted me far less than retail price for one.

Fry's had this same $299 in-store price on 1913 a few weeks back too, then $399 on 2113, which I didn't see in time to get one. They also had $599 for 2313. I keep waiting for the 2113!

$599 on a 2313 is a really great deal! Thats slightly better than 33% off MSRP. I'd jump on a deal like that right now (or, a 3313 if offered the same percentage off deal) but unfortunately, no Fry's store any where near my area.

I was going to grab a Pioneer SC-1222-K for $529 from Newegg (sale ends tonight) but, I really want Denon for my next receiver so I'm going to sit tight, wait and see what happens in the next few weeks.

Honestly, with that deal I had a hard time resisting the 2313, we almost picked it up. But, I only have 5.1 now, I can see going to 7.1, but not 9.1. The two extra channels would be wasted, not just in money, but even without a load on them I'd hate to waste power. I live in TX, just don't need any extra heat!

I too am sold on Denon, recently got a 1613, and am thoroughly enjoying the sound.

Anybody have a screen shot or something I could use for a price match or negotiation on those aforementioned UNBELIEVABLE DEALS???
1913 $299
2113 $399

if not, what is the lowest prices you've seen, currently, on 2113 or 1913???
What about lowest on 2112?
post #23 of 27
Is the Fry's deal on the Denon 1913 ($299) over this week?
If not, will that almost half-price deal return soon?
I saw in a Fry's ad last weekend this week they have a similar Onkyo receiver for $299, but the current Onkyo models reportedly have HDMI problems.
post #24 of 27
I am hoping for more drops as we get closer to the new models being released. But forget about releasing, they have not even talked about new models yet from the main companies. Last year onkyo already have there press release.
post #25 of 27
so far all I have seen is the new Yamaha line up that report came out eariler this week.

Can you bi-amp any of the unused channels? I've never done this before (currently have AVR-2805), but I only have a 5.1 system, and I too and looking to upgrade. If I did, it would be nice to utilize the unused power.


Also, has anyone else heard ANYTHING about the CI line? I know Denon released a new E-series, but I don't want one of those. I'm holding out for the XX14 models, or at least to find out what's new. If it's nothing spectacular, I'd likely going for an XX13 model on the cheap. wink.gif

Passive biamping (which is what you're describing) does nothing whatsoever to improve the quality of the sounds you hear, so using it actually wastes more energy than leaving some amps idle.

Active biamping involves the use of electronic crossovers and can improve the quality of the sounds you hear. Setting it up correctly involves more effort and understanding of acoustic principles than most people can provide.
