Surround Decoding

Introduced in movie theaters in 2012, Dolby Atmos has quickly become the gold standard in motion picture surround sound. Dolby Atmos theaters are equipped with banks of surround speakers along the side and back walls, and additional banks of speakers overhead. Dolby Atmos is an object-based scalable system, so no matter the loudspeaker configuration, the decoder scales and routes content to the various speakers for the ultimate movie surround sound experience.


You can enjoy Dolby Atmos in your home theater, thanks to the AVR-X5200W Dolby Atmos decoding system, which features provision for 1 or 2 pairs of overhead speakers, in addition to the main front speakers and surround sound speakers. Or, you can choose to go with Dolby Atmos compatible speakers, which feature additional upward firing drivers that use the room's ceiling reflectivity to provide overhead sound imaging.


Auro 3D

Auro-3D® is the next generation three-dimensional audio standard. It provides a realistic sound experience unlike anything before. By fully immersing the listener in a cocoon of life-like sound, Auro-3D® creates the sensation of actually ‘being there’. Thanks to a unique ‘Height’ channel configuration, recorded acoustic reflections are reproduced by these speakers and are heard naturally due to the fact that sounds originate from around as well as above the listener. 

Once upgraded with the Auro®-Codec Decoder, the Denon AVR-X7200W and AVR-X5200W are capable of decoding the original Auro-3D® mix and playing back an Auro 10.1 channel configuration (including “Voice of God” channel). The AVR-X4100W can process an Auro 9.1 channel configuration for full height layer capability.

Reviews And Awards - AVR-X5200W

Reviews And Awards
AV Forums - "Highly Recommended - 9/10"

"As we would expect from Denon, the X5200 proved to be a very capable surround sound performer. When listening to 5.1-channel soundtracks the receiver did a fantastic job of delivering an extremely dynamic sound field. The surrounds were lively and energetic, whilst sounds and effects were seamlessly panned around the room. The front soundstage was open and detailed and dialogue remained clear and focused on the centre channel. Music was well defined and the entire sound field remained tonally balanced, helping to envelope the listener with clarity and precision.

When we moved onto Dolby Atmos soundtracks the results were as impressive as we hoped, with the additional overhead speakers really opening up the immersive nature of the audio. The dimensional effects of the object-based mix meant that pinpointing specific sounds became much easier and the sense of spacial awareness was remarkable…..Whilst there might only be a limited amount of Atmos-encoded material available at the moment, you can give any 5.1- or 7.1-channel mix the 'Atmos' treatment using the Dolby Surround setting…This proved to be highly effective, giving all our favourite surround soundtracks a new lease of multi-dimensional life.


…In fact it handled two-channel music extremely well…


Is it worth buying?

…the design, features, flexibility and performance of the Denon AVR-X5200W, make it a strong contender for anyone looking to buy a new receiver. The level of features and overall specifications are second to none and the ease of setup and well designed controls and menu systems make it a very attractive proposition.

The performance was excellent, regardless of which audio format you choose, and the Dolby Atmos decoding was incredibly immersive. If you want support for Auro-3D the choices are more limited and, in terms of mass market receivers, only Denon and Marantz currently provide that option. Yes you'll have to pay an extra fee for the privilege but it seems a small price for cutting-edge technology and the X5200 doesn't disappoint in terms of the quality of its Auro-3D performance.

…if you're looking for a genuinely impressive AV receiver that delivers in all the important areas, then look no further than the Denon AVR-X5200W."

  • 7 channel equal power output

    7 channel equal power is a feature used in Denon Amplifiers with the means of connecting 7 speakers independantly which do not require separate power amps connected via the pre-outs. This feature compliments Dolby Digital EX and DTS ES sound modes. Allowing you to connect the second 'surround back' speaker, which compliments the surround back speaker initially there for 6.1, straight off the main amplifier without adding a power amplifier to support 7.1 surround formats. The amplifier has built in separate internal amplifiers to power each channel independently, this system ensures that the 6 major channels Front Left, Front Right, Center, Surround Left, Surround right, Surround Back left and Surround Back right. Thus allowing you to enjoy the same high power output, giving a balanced and truly high-impact surround-sound environment.

  • Dolby Digital-Decoder

    Dolby Digital is the multi-channel digital signal format developed by Dolby Laboratories. Dolby Digital consists of up to "5.1" channels - front left, front right, center, surround left, surround right and an additional channel exclusively reserved for additional deep bass sound effects (the Low Frequency Effects - LFE - channel, also called the ".1" channel, containing bass frequencies of up to 120Hz).

    Unlike the analog Dolby Pro Logic format, Dolby Digital's main channels can all contain full range sound information, from the lowest bass, up to the highest frequencies - 22kHz. The signals within each channel are distinct from the others, allowing pinpoint sound imaging and Dolby Digital offers tremendous dynamic range from the most powerful sound effects to the quietest, softest sounds, free from noise and distortion.

  • Dolby Pro Logic IIx

    Dolby Pro Logic IIx is an extension of Dolby Pro Logic II technology. This highly sophisticated algorithm processes native stereo and 5.1 channel content to produce 6.1 or 7.1 output channels. And Dolby Pro Logic IIx is not available in the system without surround back speaker(s).

    Dolby Pro Logic IIx Music: The music mode creates a rich and enveloping surround ambience delivered to the subwoofer, optimizing the visceral of planned rear effects. This mode can only be used with 2-channel audio sources.

    Dolby Pro Logic IIx Cinema: The Cinema mode is optimized for movies or programs with Dolby Surround soundtracks. This mode is also appropriate for use with video game.

  • Dolby TrueHD

    Dolby TrueHD is a completely loss-free Audio-Codec for high resolution audio for up to 8 channels Supporting 24-Bit and sampling rates up to 192 kHz. It requires specific Dolby HD decoders. Since the resulting signal is bit-to-bit to the master you can achieve the ultimate in audio quality.

  • HDMI-output (HDCP)

    HDMI (high definition multimedia interface), a new connector that bases itself on the DVI-HDCP model. HDMI supports uncompressed high definition video plus multi-channel audio in a single cable using a smaller connector that eliminates the need for multiple cables in home entertainment systems, simplifying installation and eliminating cross technology confusion. It transmits uncompressed digital video so that the picture maintains a high quality of color depth, brightness and contrast. It also supports Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) based on the AV.link protocol so it can be controlled with a universal remote that is used with multiple HDMI sources such as Denon DVD players. HDMI supports bi-directional coommunciation between devices, allowing DVD players to communicate with Plasma's, LCD screens and Projectors, as long as they are HDCP compatible.
    The HDMI connection supports every uncompressed standard, enhanced and high definition video format ranging from 480I to 480P, 720P, 1080I and 1080P as well as existing PAL formats. It also has the bandwidth to support compressed audio formats such as Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, DTS, DTS EX and uncompressed formats (PCM audio) up to eight channels, up to 192kHz, up to 24-bits.

    High Definition Multimedia Interface(HDMI) and High Definition Content Protection (HDCP) is a copyright protection system installed on most Plasmas, LCD's and projectors consisting of a HDMI or DVI input. All Denon DVD players require HDCP compliant displays to be fully compatible. It prohibits the copying of copyrighted material, like onto a VCR or DVD-recorder.

  • Radio Data System

    Radio Data System for VHF/FM broadcasting.

    The developers aimed at making radio receivers very user-friendly. Listeners should be able to see the programme service name (PS) on an eight character alpha-numerical display and the transmitter frequency information, as displayed on non-RDS radios, is then only used in the background by an RDS radio. The tuner is able to choose the transmitter frequency, among a number of alternatives, that gives the best quality reception.

    Travel information with RDS is currently possible using the Travel Programme (TP) and Travel Announcement (TA) flags.

    Once a radio is tuned to a programme service broadcast within a network, using the RDS feature Enhanced Other Networks (EON), additional data about other programmes from the same broadcaster will be received. This enables the listener, according to their choice, to have the radio operating in an automatic switch-mode for travel information or a preferred Programme Type (PTY, e.g. News).

    Another feature of RDS is accurate Clock-Time, displaying the time/date when selected.
