Denon has announced the availability of two new S-Series AV receivers, the 7.2-channel AVR-S760H ($549) and 5.2-channel AVR-S660H ($449). Each has three 8K HDMI inputs, eARC compatibility, Audyssey Room Correction and multiple music streaming options.
“With the new Denon S-Series AVRs, users can build the very best 4K home theater today and know their AV receiver is also 8K ready when they are,” said Trip Randall, president of Denon. “These AVRs offer outstanding features and functionality to meet demanding entertainment needs at an affordable price for customers ready to upgrade from beginner systems or sound bars. With seven channels of discrete amplifications, the AVR-S760H offers extra upgrades, such as Dolby Atmos or DTS:X capabilities for the most realistic, immersive home cinema experience.”
The AVR-S660H sports five channels of 75W per channel amplification (8 ohms, 2 channels driven), as well as Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio decoding. It accommodates key HDR pass-through credentials with Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10+, Dynamic HDR and HLG, plus 8K upscaling. The Denon AVR-S760H, meanwhile, is a 7.2 channel (also 75W per channel) AVR with immersive audio formats Dolby Atmos, DA Height Virtualization, DTS:X and DTS Virtual:X all onboard.
Both receivers include built-in HEOS multi-room music streaming, Apple AirPlay 2, WAV, FLAC, ALAC and DSD 2.8/5.6MHz playback. In addition to Spotify, Pandora and Tidal wireless connectivity, the AVRs support gaming features in the form of VRR, QFT and ALLM, and a phono input for turntable owners. Audyssey MultEQ enables straightforward speaker setup and calibration, and a dialog enhancer feature allows “on the fly” readjustments of dialog levels.
