Denon has announced the availability of its AVR-4308DAB high definition network Wi-Fi 7.1 AV receiver, an absolute beast of a system with a mile-long specifications list that I can’t hope to do justice to in this article.
Highlights of the system include full high definition (1080p) video and audio capabilities, DAB radio and iPod connectivity, Wi-Fi streaming of media over a home network, Internet radio, four of the latest HDMI 1.3 high definition inputs/two outputs, Deep Colour and xvYCC support, auto lip syncing, upscaling of standard definition video to 1080p, up to four room zones capability, 170 watts of power for all seven channels, Denon’s Dynamic Discrete Surround Circuit HD and Advanced AL24 on all channels, compressed audio restorer, photo-real on-screen Graphical User Interface, auto set-up and room EQ, and numerous high-quality audio standards.
Getting the idea of the advanced nature of this unit?
It will be available this week, retailing at £1,999.99. Much more detailed information should soon be available at Denon’s web site.
