Denon Launches New ‘Core’ Receivers

<April 25, 2012> Denon Electronics, part of D&M Holdings, Inc. announced today the launch of a new 2012 “core” receiver line-up. The new 2012 line-up includes four receivers that the company says are available now and include some popular features such as Apple’s AirPlay, expanded access to content, and flexible connectivity capability.

Denon Product Manager for Denon core products, Hoshinori Yamada, said of this launch: “With the launch Denonof our new core AV receiver line for 2012, we are giving more people total simplicity of setup and operation, access to online music content as well as outstanding audio and video capabilities.”

Getting more AirPlay…
First introduced in Denon’s sister brand, Marantz, three of the new receiver models incorporate Apple’s popular AirPlay technology. According to the company, with AirPlay, users can customize soundtracks by “unleashing their iTunes music libraries through a Mac, PC or an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.”

Denon says that this new line has been designed “from the ground up” to allow simple and intuitive access to audio/video content. The company cites the inclusion of front panel HDMI input for connecting camcorders and cameras. And on the AVR-1913/1713/1613 they’ve also included a front panel USB input which facilitates the connection of a portable music player.

Audyssey odyssey…

All of the receivers other than the AVR-1513 support AirPlay and DLNA 1.5. Also included in the models above the AVR-1513 is a full complement of Audyssey technology for optimal sound quality. Audyssey Dynamic Volume adjusts volume levels in real-time; Audyssey DynamicEQ offers an improved surround effect at low volume; Audyssey MultEQ (AVR-1613 and AVR-1913 [AVR-1713 has MultEQXT]) automatically adjusts speakers to the room environment and takes the speaker characteristics into account.
