Denon AVR-X6400H wins WHAT HI-FI AWARD

Nov 01, 2017


The Denon AVR-X6400H is this year's WHAT HI-FI AWARD winner in the Home Cinema Amplifier £1,000+ category.

WHAT HI-FI said:
"A terrifically composed, articulate and confident AV receiver that delivers captivating home cinema performance for the price"


"It's a surprisingly musical amplifier, with a wonderfully fluid sense of dynamics that keeps you hooked on every word and action unfolding on screen."

"The AVR-X6400H balances the frequencies well, too. Dialogue is enunciated clearly, and it doesn't get swallowed up amidst the explosive havoc occurring around the main cast. Objects and aliens are thrown about, and the nimble-footed 6400H has no problem tracking every aspect across the surround field. As expected, it sounds bigger and more spacious than its smaller £500 sibling. It's an immersive performance, with or without the Dolby Atmos soundtrack activated."

"There's a sweetness to the refined top end that, while delivering the sharp crack of shattering glass in 'Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them', doesn't make you wince."

Verdict:
"Denon has gone to great pains to ensure anyone buying its AV receiver isn't left wanting when it comes to the latest film and music playback technologies. But extensive features aside, what really impresses us is how articulate, rhythmically precise and musical this AV receiver sounds. It's punchy enough and fully exciting, but we love how it gives importance to the subtler aspects of sound quality. A terrific performer, this Denon AVR-X6400H would be a worthy addition to virtually anyone's home cinema room."
