The new Denon AVR-X2200W AV Receiver wins a 5 Star What Hi-Fi rating!

What HiFi recently reviewed the unit and they say:

"You'll be tempted by Denon's articulate and future-proof Dolby Atmos amp"

The new Denon AVR-X2200W AV Receiver has been awarded a 5 Star What Hi-Fi rating!

"An articulate, detailed amp with stacks of functionality and future proofing"

"….a receiver that pushes the boundaries of what we've come to expect at this price."

"…this amp is as big on performance as it is on specs, proving that Denon is once again back on its A game."

Performance
"The midrange shows great insight, picking out plenty of fine detail in every tyre screech and gear change, while delivering an engaging fluidity to dynamics that makes it as precise as it is articulate."

"It's a really well balanced presentation. Up top, the treble is crisp and refined while the low end packs just enough rumble for the big action scenes."

"It would appear Denon has spent some time on the X2200's way with music…There's a much greater handling of rhythm and timing, and dynamically it's full of expression and fluidity."

Verdict
"Denon has thrown everything at this receiver and with fantastic results It's been quick to pick up where it fell down last year, and added in some excellent functionality that leaves no stone unturned in 2015.

The Denon X2200 will deliver an exciting, well-considered home cinema experience no matter what setup you decide, while future-proofing your system for some time in the process. If that's not tempting, we don't know what is."
