Denon is bringing down the cost of AirPlay and networking in it’s A/V receiver (AVR) lineup to a suggested $399 from $549 with the launch of four new core series models.
The core series consists of the 7.1-channel AVR-1913 at a suggested $579 and three 5.1-channel models. They are the $449 AVR-1713, $399 AVR-1613 and $249 AVR-1513.
All of the receivers feature short signal-path circuit design to optimize audio and video playback.
