”The Denon’s sound is cohesive and well-balanced, not allowing any particular frequency to dominate…first-class detail reproduction shines through. Clear, precise top-end info adorns every explosion.”
Surround information is deftly orchestrated too…The sound stage is broad and immersive, with accurate effects placement…This expressive presentation, coupled with clarity and organisation, makes the action easy to follow.
You can crank the volume without ruffling the Denon’s feathers, testament to the AVR’s careful tuning.
This approach works well with music. The AVR-X1400H’s natural warmth and finesse gave me chills when streaming Marvin Gaye’s ‘What’s Going On’. The soul masterpiece is drenched in detail, with a smooth balance and tight, groovy basslines.
Another midrange marvel from Denon, offering a superb feature list – enhanced by HEOS and Dolby Vision support – and detailed performance at a great price.
