Denon AVR-X6300 gets the AVForums Best Buy award!


Enjoy a superb surround sound experience with the Denon AVR-X6300H, which features Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and Auro 3D surround decoding, and is the first Denon AV receiver with 11 channels of amplification built-in. Dolby Atmos and DTS:X feature object-based surround sound with the ability to drive overhead speakers to deliver the ultimate immersive 3D audio experience, and the AVR-X6300H’s 11-amplifier design means all this can be delivered without any need for external amplification, even when running four overhead speakers in 7.1.4 configuration. Auro 3D is also supported, via an optional firmware upgrade.

Full wireless connectivity is provided via both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, Apple Airplay is supported for music streaming, and built-in HEOS technology allows the AVR-X6300H to become the heart of a whole-house wireless multi-room music network. HEOS lets you to enjoy your favourite music anywhere and everywhere around your home, meaning you can explore, browse, and play music from your own music library, from online streaming music services, and from thousands of Internet radio stations using “HEOS” app. It’s all controlled from the free “HEOS” app, available for smartphones and tablets, and high resolution audio formats are fully supported for incredible fidelity.

 The AVR-X6300H is awarded with a BEST BUY logo and an excellent overall rating of 9/10. Furthermore, the ratings given for ‘Features’ and ‘Value for Money’ are 10/10 which are exceptional results.

The AVForums Best Buy award is given to a product that offers a high-performance level at core competencies as well as doing so at a price point that defies its market position, making it a product that should be auditioned even against more expensive rivals.

“The remote app has recently had an upgrade and it now operates in conjunction with the HEOS app, allowing you to move seamlessly from one to the other. This is a nice touch, allowing you to easily control all the functions on your X6300H using the remote app, with all the buttons you need sensibly laid out. However, if you want to use the receiver as part of the HEOS multiroom system then you just switch into the HEOS app and then control all the online functions as well as all the devices connected to the HEOS network. It's all very slick and very impressive.”

“Ultimately the X6300H is a fantastic performer with both movies and music but it's the receiver's ability to so effectively handle a full 11-channel configuration right out of the box that sets it apart from the competition.”

Should I buy one?
“If you're looking for single-box solution to a full 7.1.4 immersive audio configuration, then the simple answer is yes. The Denon AVR-X6300H does everything an AV Receiver should do and it does it very well. Denon have thought of every tiny detail when designing this receiver, right down to the included accessories and even how you unbox it. The X6300 is familiar in terms of its layout but remains attractive, well engineered and solidly constructed...“

“…The inclusion of Denon's HEOS multiroom system is a major new addition to a receiver that is already packed with features and the inclusion of a free HEOS1 HS2 is an added bonus…”

“…Denon have invested a lot of time and money in making their receivers as easy to setup and as simple to use as possible – other manufacturers could learn from their efforts…”

“…The receiver did an excellent job delivering both stereo and multi-channel music but where it really excelled was with film surround soundtracks. It delivered an open front soundstage, focused dialogue, good tonal balance and superb steering of effects around the room. The bass was well integrated and the sound field was suitably immersive…”

“…the X6300 is a class act in every respect and if you're looking for an 11-channel single box solution then it's quite simply the most obvious choice – there is nothing else that comes close in terms of design, features, performance and especially price. As such the Denon AVR-X6300H offers an unbeatable combination of exceptional performance and value, making it a worthy winner of an AVForums Best Buy badge.”
