The $479-suggested price point will be Denon’s starting price for AV receivers with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X surround decoding, the company announced.
Denon’s $479-suggested AVR-S710W
In revealing two new 7.2-channel AVRs in its opening-price S series, Denon said the $479 AVR-S710W and $579 AVR-S910W will be available in July to complement the previously announced $279 5.2-channel AVR-S510BT.
The two new models in the series, positioned as offering high value and high performance, will ship out of the box with Dolby Atmos but will get a DTS:X firmware upgrade sometime in the fall. Both 7.2-channel models will support Atmos and DTS:X playback with 5.1.2 speaker configurations.
They won’t accept an add-on two-channel amp to support 5.1.4 speaker systems. The series starts with the $279 model offering full-bandwidth 18Mbps HDMI 2.0, HDCP 2.2, built-in Bluetooth, and upgradability to HDMI 2.0a. It’s not upgradable to DTS:X or Dolby Atmos.
