What customers say about "Key Specs"
Denon AVR-X2300W 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD AV Receiver with Bluetooth
  • At 95 watts/ch you will have plenty of power to drive all but the most inefficient speakers. If you have high efficiency speakers like Klipsch or others 95 watts can actually be painfully loud.
  • My son has this unit and a Klipsch 7.1 setup in his room and he has never turned it up past -11db, which is roughly 6 watts/ch and that was VERY loud. I have yet to ever hear distortion from any of my Denon AVRs.
  • If your subwoofer has it's own power amp (as mine does) then this 95 watt receiver is fine for small to medium size rooms at a high volume level. This 2016 Denon model has pretty much anything you could want in an AVR.
  • I like the pure sound and power the unit delivers. The 4K resolution is unbelievable
Denon AVR-X3300W 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD A/V Receiver with Built-In Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
  • Plenty of power and the Audessy XT32 room adjustment works well, measuring multiple listening points.
  • Good power and sound, but doesn't quite have the punch that my old Denon avr3806 had, but then again it was hundreds of dollars of cheaper.
  • This receiver is exactly as advertised. It has more than enough power to blow out eardrums in my home theater when coupled with my 7.2 system.
  • I live in a teeny tiny apartment, and I only run a 5.1 setup, so this receiver was perfect for me.
  • Not as powerful as my previous Marantz
  • One thing though..... do keep in mind that this receiver is limited to SEVEN channels. Some of the new receivers (eg. the new Denon AVR-x3400) have 11 channels, and are more suitable for Atmos playback, so keep that it mind when shopping.

What customers say about "Features"
Denon AVR-X2300W 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD AV Receiver with Bluetooth
  • As far as features of the AVR-X2300W, it has all the other latest features and technology you could possibly want, including: Full 4K Ultra support up to 60hz and 4K Ultra up-conversion @ 30hz, HDMI Pass-Through, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, Dolby Atmos, TrueHD, DTS:X, HDCP2.2, HDR, and more.
  • This AVR also has Dolby Surround, DTS NeuralX, and Multi-Channel-Stereo. These will all take a stereo 2-channel source and smartly incorporate all the speakers in your setup.
  • My current tv is 1080p resolution and this receiver will handle the new 4K video when I upgrade.
  • The Audessy room calibration worked well for me
  • A new feature is the internet connectivity. I've used the Internet radio feature and it works well.
  • Only one thing that I wish it had (like my old AVR) is a switched 120 volt connection to run my cabinet cooling fan.
  • After initial setup, navigating the setup menu requires someone with patience - and time. Don't try to configure surround options (for example) while the family is waiting to be entertained.
Denon AVR-X3300W 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD A/V Receiver with Built-In Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
  • Front panel display is clean, contains good amount of info and can be semi-customized
  • Can EQ and balance dual subs
  • Front panel display is clean, contains good amount of info and can be semi-customized
  • Mobile app is fairly useful and well laid out
  • 4K up-conversion and transcoding from analog to HDMI
  • Not the best looking AVR
  • The Audessy iPad app is a rather expensive add on, so I skipped it. Too bad this is not free/less expensive.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Denon AVR-X2300W 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD AV Receiver with Bluetooth
  • Connections are clearly marked and setup is a breeze.
  • Setup was a breeze compared to what I was used to when I last set up a receiver 12 years ago
  • On screen menu and Audyssey was amazing. I had everything setup and calibrated within 20 minutes for a simple 5.1 setup with a TV, Xbox, AppleTv, Switch, and PS4 to the ARC port on the TV
  • Renamed all the inputs for what they controlled which made it much easier to keep straight what was what
  • Wouldn't connect to Wireless N 5G (May be the distance from access point) but works fine on 2.4, HDMI control for Roku Ultra is a bit sketchy-Won't turn receiver on or switch to correct input on receiver and often get HDCP error message.
  • The only problem I've had is that they REALLY bury this information: All those analog connections in the back do not convert to a digital signal and output to the HDMI. LOL ANNOYING
Denon AVR-X3300W 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD A/V Receiver with Built-In Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
  • Great interface! Easy to setup and functions work how they are supposed to
  • This denon, installed in place of the onkyo, same connected components same cables, it doesn't care what order things are turned on, it simply passes audio and video through for the default pass through
  • There are plenty of hookups on the back for just about anything you might need. As soon as I get another CAT 7 ethernet cable, I'll hook that up for an internet connection, but for now the wifi internect connection is working great to get me loads of internet channels
  • It was SO easy to connect to my home wifi system.....just following the setup assistant directions, it practically did the whole thing for me. It was amazingly simple.
  • HDMI inputs cannot keep up with the 4K UHD 60fps output of my Roku Ultra, so I had to dial it back to 30fps. The HDMI output can be scaled up to 60 fps, however, and so far I have not noticed any issues associated with this upscaling
