Denon Dolby Atmos Receivers


There are two new Denon receivers that feature the new Dolby Atmos Surround DSP system. The new Denon Dolby Atmos receivers include the Denon AVR-X4100W and Denon AVR-X5200W and both will be available in September. The AVR-X4100W replaces the Denon AVR-X4000 receiver but adds a lot of new features like built-in WiFi, Bluetooth and Dolby Atmos. The AVR-X4100W and the AVR-X5200W receivers are the first Denon AVRs to feature Dolby Atmos. Dolby Atmos is unique because it, for the first time, allows a single surround mix to be reproduced in various formats and it can include point source sound that can come from nearly any and all directions—particularly overhead. Dolby Atmos is gaining in popularity in commercial movie theaters and now it seems to be infiltrating the home theater realm as well.

“It is a testament to the unique sound experience Dolby Atmos delivers that some of the world’s leading filmmakers have embraced it as a storytelling tool. Every detail comes alive, making the audience feel as if they are in the middle of the movie action. The experience is unmatched in the home theater today.”

Yoshinori Yamada, Global Business Team Leader for Denon Audio and Video Products

Denon Dolby Atmos Receivers and Configurability

The new Denon Dolby Atmos receivers come with enough processing power to run Audyssey MultEQ XT32 and calibrate 9 channels for the Dolby Atmos surround DSP. The receivers can calibrate for a 5.1.4 or 7.1.2 configuration and incorporate ceiling mounted, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers. A 5.1.4 speaker configuration is basically a standard 5.1 speaker layout that also employs 4 additional overhead or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers. The Denon AVR-X4100W can also enable a 7.1.2 configuration—a 7.1 speaker layout with 2 overhead, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers.

The Denon AVR-X5200W will have the additional processing capability to support a full 11 channel Dolby Atmos setup. It will do this by taking advantage of a 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos configuration. A 7.1.4 speaker configuration uses a traditional 7.1 speaker layout, but adds an additional 4 overhead, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers.
