Denon AVR-X1300W wins WHAT HI-FI Group Test

Jan 31, 2017

The Denon AVR-X1300W is awarded with 4 Stars from WHAT HI-FI magazine and is the TEST WINNER beating both the Pioneer VXX-531 and Yamaha RX-V381.


"While all three have four-star ratings, suggesting that they all cross the line together in joint first place, there is still a clear hierarchy here. And topping it is the Denon AVR-X1300W"


"Continuing the brand's impressive reign in the affordable market, it offers a compelling combination of 7.2 channels, hi-res audio, network streaming features like Spotify Connect, and a solid, weighty performance that neither the Yamaha nor the Pioneer can quite match."


Note that the reason for the 4-star rating is because WHAT HI-FI still rate the Award winning AVR-X2300W as the best receiver to buy in the "under £500" category.
