Our take on the Denon AVR-X2000 IN-Command

by David Brown
Denon

Receivers: Your ticket to sensational sound

Your receiver powers your speakers and lets you connect and select your entertainment sources. But a great receiver does a lot more — it ignites your emotions. From the passion of a favorite musical artist, to the crossfire of a super-charged movie soundtrack, to the intensity and immersion of a fast-paced video game, your receiver is the key to experiencing and enjoying it in full.

A recipe for thrilling home theater

Take connections for 7 pairs of speakers. Add easy music streaming options, a slew of HDMI and other inputs, and back it up with seven channels of power. It all adds up to one versatile home theater receiver — the Denon AVR-X2000 IN-Command. With Apple AirPlay, the ability to power speakers in a second room, and user-friendly menus and controls, the 'X2000 can serve as the heart of a powerful stereo system or a thrilling home theater capable of dynamic surround sound. It'll even do 3D and 4K video, too.

    Audio Features

    Equal Power Amp Design w Discrete Circuitry: The Denon AVR-X2000 is equipped with a 7 channel power amplifier rated at 95-watts (into 8-ohms, at 20-20kHz, with 0.08% THD, driving 2 channels) that reproduces high-fidelity sound in surround mode with equal quality and power for all channels, true to the original sound. The power amplifier circuit adopts a discrete-circuit configuration that achieves high-quality surround sound reproduction. To faithfully reproduce the original surround sound, each of the Denon AVR-X2000's seven channels are equipped with its own high-current power amp of equal power. Since these power amps also use discrete circuits configured with parts strictly selected for their contribution to high sound quality, rather than with low-cost integrated circuits (ICs), the surround sound playback is of impeccably high quality.

    Amplifier Assignment: The AVR-X2000's seven discrete amplifier channels can be configured to accommodate your type of home theater setup.

    • Surround Back: The AV receiver's amplifier channels can be configured as Front Left/Right, Center, Surround Left/Right, and Surround Back Left/Right for Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, and Dolby Pro Logic IIx 7.1ch playback.
    • Bi-Amp: You can configure the amplifier for front bi-amp operation to achieve a higher-quality 2-channel sound by connecting the receiver's front and surround back channels to your main front speakers (if compatible). Receiver will be limited to 5.1ch surround.
    • Front B: A second set of front speakers can be powered by the surround back amplifier. Receiver will be limited to 5.1ch surround.
    • Front Height: The receiver's amplifier channels can also be configured as Front Left/Right, Front Height Left/Right, Center, and Surround Left/Right for Dolby Pro Logic IIz 7.1ch playback.
    • Zone2: In addition, the AVR-X2000's amplifier channels can be configured as Front Left/Right, Center, Surround Left/Right, and Zone 2 for Dolby Digital, DTS, and Dolby Pro Logic II 5.1ch playback in the main zone and 2ch PCM playback in the second zone.

    24-bit/192-kHz DACs: This receiver is equipped with 24-bit/192-kHz DACs for all channels to decode and playback high-resolution recordings with less jitter and  clearer sound.

    32-Bit Processing DSP: The Denon AVR-X2000 is equipped with an Analog Devices 32-bit DSP for powerful and highly accurate surround sound reproduction.

    Multi-Channel Decoding Formats: The Denon AVR-X2000 AV receiver supports the following multi-channel (Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro Logic) decoding formats.

    Note: Dolby Digital and DTS listening modes can only be selected if your audio source is connected to the AV receiver via a digital audio connection (HDMI, optical, or coaxial). To enjoy true 7.1ch Dolby Digital TrueHD and DTS-HD surround sound, the receiver must be connected to your Blu-ray player via HDMI.

    Denon Original Listening Modes: Denon's Original Listening Modes, combined with Dolby Digital/DTS/Dolby Pro Logic processing, produce more realistic, powerful sound effects for your movie and music sound tracks based on the type of content and your home theater setup. You can choose from the following:

    • Rock Arena: For rock and popular music sources, this mode surrounds you with reflected sound of the kind you would hear at a live concert.
    • Jazz Club: This mode recreates the atmosphere of a live house where the ceiling is low and you are enveloped with rich doses of reflected sound.
    • Matrix: With this mode, you can add rich reflected sound to 2-channel stereo music sources where reflected sound is normally not audible.
    • Video Game: This mode is suited for achieving surround sound with video games..
    • Mono Movie: This mode is used when you listen to recorded monaural sound sources such as AM radio broadcasts or news programs from the center speaker.
    • Virtual: Enjoy surround effects using only the front speakers or set of headphones.
    • Multichannel Stereo: Left and right stereo channels are distributed to all the speakers so that stereo sound can be heard from all directions at any listening position.
    Note: This unit automatically generates a list of all the playable sound modes based on the input audio format and the current speaker setup configuration and displays the list on the screen. Therefore, you can select a correct surround playback mode even if you are not familiar with sound mode selection.

    Direct Listening Modes: The Denon AVR-X2000 offers two Direct Listening Modes which bypass the receiver's tone & DSP processing for higher sound quality performance. Direct Mode provides playback of 2ch or Multichannel audio in its original form, without any surround or tone processing. Pure Direct Mode goes a step further by turning off the receiver's display and analog video circuitry to minimize the possibility of any noised being added to the audio signal.

    Audyssey Technology: The AVR-X2000 features a full package of Audyssey audio technologies for optimal sound quality. Audyssey Dynamic Volume offers real-time volume adjustment, while Audyssey DynamicEQ improves your system's surround effects during low volume levels. Audyssey MultEQ automatically sets speakers to suit your room's listening environment and the speakers' characteristics.

    • Audyssey MultEQ: Audyssey MultEQ technology helps create an optimal acoustic profile for your home theater. Using the included setup microphone, Audyssey MultEQ measures sound levels and adjusts speaker configuration accordingly, making setup fast and easy. This room acoustic measuring and correction system analyzes (via the included microphone) the audio characteristics of your speaker system and your listening environment at up to 6 measurement points and automatically tailors the sound for top audio fidelity. You can set the Audyssey MultEQ to one of the following modes.
      • Audyssey: Optimizes the crossover point, output level, delay time, and equalization of all speakers based on speaker frequency response, speaker location, and room acoustics.
      • Audyssey Bypass L/R: Optimizes all speakers except front left and right.
      • Audyssey Flat: Optimizes frequency response of all speakers to flat.
      • Manual: Adjusts the tonal quality for each speaker individually using the manual equalizer settings; 63 Hz, 125 Hz, 250 Hz, 500 Hz, 1 kHz, 2 kHz, 4 kHz, 8 kHz, and 16 kHz (-20dB to +6dB).
      • Off: Turns equalizer off.
    • Dynamic EQ: Audio engineers mix music and movie soundtracks at reference levels much louder than typical home listening levels. At lower volumes the human ear perceives sound differently; voices change, bass dissipates, and the surround effect becomes less enveloping. Dynamic EQ adjusts the frequency response curve based on volume to maintain consistent bass output, octave-to-octave balance, and surround impact, resulting in rich sound at any volume. You can set the Dynamic EQ to 0, 5, 10, or 15 dB.
    • Audyssey Dynamic Volume: Audyssey Dynamic Volume solves the problem of large variations in volume level between television programs, commercials, and between the soft and loud passages of movies. Dynamic Volume addresses the issue of commercials that are too loud and movie soundtracks with vast differences between soft and loud passages; the results are more intelligible dialogue, loud passages maintain impact, and soft whispers are heard clearly. When the volume level changes, Dynamic EQ also adjusts the frequency response to maintain sound quality. You can set the Dynamic Volume to Day (low), Evening (middle), Midnight (high), or off.

    Surround Parameters: You can adjust the following surround mode parameters:

    • Dolby Pro Logic II Music Settings: While listening in the Dolby Pro Logic II Music format, there are three further enhancements you can adjust:
      • Panorama: Broadens the front stereo image to the surround speakers to provide a wraparound effect, especially effective when there is limited output from the surround channels, panorama can be turned on/off in the menu.
      • Dimension: Allows you to move the sound field forward or backward.
      • Center Width: Allows you to adjust the width of the center channel.
    • Center Image: In the Neo:6 Music mode, the Center Image feature adjusts the output of the left and right channels relative to the center channel, allowing you to make the center channel more or less dominant as needed. This improves the image of the center channel, especially when the listener is off-center. Adjustment varies from 5 (nothing subtracted from the L/R channels) to 0 (L/R channel output is cut in half).
    • Denon Original Surround Mode Settings: While listening in one of the Denon Original Surround Modes, there are three further enhancements you can adjust:
      • Room Size: This feature allows you to set the size of your desired acoustic environment when using specific Denon Original Surround Modes; select Small, Medium small, Medium, Medium large, or Large.
      • Effect Level: This function adjusts the effect signal level from 1 to 15 when using specific Denon Original Surround Modes.
      • Delay Time: This feature adjusts the delay time (0-300ms) to control the sound stage size.
    • Height Gain: Adjust the volume (Low/Mid/High) of the Front Height channels in Dolby Pro Logic IIz.

    Audio Enhancements: The Denon AVR-X2000 receiver provides various audio enhancements to deliver a high-quality listening experience every time.

    • CINEMA EQ (Cinema Equalizer): The Cinema EQ function gently decreases the level of the extreme high frequencies, compensating for overly-bright sounding motion picture soundtracks. Select this function if the sound from the front speakers is too bright. This function only works in the Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro Logic (including PL II, PL IIx, PL IIz), and DTS Neo:6 modes.
    • Restorer: Compressed audio formats such as MP3, WMA (Windows Media Audio), and MPEG-4 AAC reduce the amount of data by eliminating signal components that are hard for the human ear to hear. The Restorer function generates the signals eliminated upon compression, restoring the sound to conditions near those of the original sound before compression. It also corrects the sense of volume of the bass to obtain richer sound with compressed audio signals.
    • Dynamic Range Compression (DRC): Motion picture soundtracks have tremendous dynamic range (the contrast between very soft and very loud sounds). For listening late at night, or whenever the maximum sound level is lower than usual, Compressing the dynamic range allows you to hear all of the sounds in the soundtrack with reduced dynamic range. DRC works when playing program sources recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS.
    • Tone Settings: You can independently adjust the system's overall Bass and Treble settings from -6 to +6 dB.

    Volume Settings: The AVR-X2000 offers the following volume settings.

    • Volume Scale: You can choose to display an Absolute volume scale (0-98) or Relative volume scale (-79.5 to 18dB).
    • Volume Limit: You can set a maximum volume level of 0, -10, or -20 dB to limit the receiver's total volume output.
    • Power On Level: You can define the volume setting that is active when the power is turned on (0, 1-98, -79 to +18dB, or Last)
    • Mute Level: You can set the amount of attenuation for the audio muting circuit; -40dB or -20dB below current volume, or full mute (sound turned off entirely).

    Level Adjustments:  The AVR-X2000 provides the following level adjustments.

    • Source Level: This function adjusts the playback level of the currently selected input source's audio input. Use this feature if there are differences in the input volume levels between different sources. You can correct the playback level of the audio input from -12 to +12dB.
    • Dialogue Level: You can adjust the output level (+/-12dB) to clarify the dialogue output from the center channel.
    • Subwoofer Level: You can set the receiver's subwoofer output level (+/-12dB) independent from the other speaker levels and system's main volume.

    Audio Inputs/Outputs: The Denon AV receiver offers a variety of analog and digital audio inputs/outputs.

    • Assignable Digital Inputs: The AVR-X2000 features an optical digital (Toslink) input and a coaxial digital input. Each input can be assigned to any of the different input sources except Tuner.
    • Speaker Terminals w/ Color Labels: The receiver has binding-post terminals for all speaker connections. The binding-polst terminals can accept bare wire, pin connectors, and banana plugs (single/dual). The receiver will accept speaker impedances of 6 to 16-ohm. The AV receiver comes with color labels to easily identify which channel a speaker cable should be connected to. Since the speaker cables have labels in the same colors as the connectors on the AVR-X2000's rear panel, there's no longer any confusion about which terminals they should be connected to.
    • Headphones: When headphones are plugged into the full-size 1/4" jack on the front panel, all the speakers are automatically muted.

    Video Features

    HDMI (v1.4): With seven HDMI v1.4 inputs (6 rear/1 front), the AVR-X2000 allows you to route multiple high-definition devices, such as your Blu-ray player and cable/satellite receiver, to your TV. It also allows you to connect all of your devices to your TV with a single HDMI cable (via its HDMI monitor output), reducing cable clutter. The HDMI inputs are assignable to different input sources. The receiver's HDMI v.1.4 jacks are compatible with 1080p/24Hz & 4K video, 3D video signals, Deep Color & x.v.Color technology; as well as LipSync, ARC, and HDMI control.

    • 3D Pass-Through: With the advent of 3D media, it is important to own a receiver that recognizes 3D video signals. The AVR-X2000 is able to pass through 3D signals from your Blu-ray player, ensuring that the 3D effect doesn't get lost in translation. It also recognizes signals from 3D television broadcasts. By connecting a 3D-compliant Blu-ray disc player and 3D-compliant TV to the AVR-X2000, you will have a 3D home theater where you can enjoy high-definition sound and video on a level you've never experienced before.
    • Deep/x.v.Color Support: The AVR-X2000 also supports Deep Color and x.v.Color content, which can display a larger color range than standard-definition schemes. The result is a more lifelike, vibrant picture.
    • LipSync: If needed, the audio signal can be manually delayed to match the video signal; adjust from 0-200ms.
    • ARC (Audio Return Channel): This feature allows audio to be sent from your compatible HDTV to your receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio and video to your HDTV. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to your television.

    4K Pass-Through + Video Upconversion: The Denon AV receiver's Analog Device 12-bit video processor (ADV8003) supports pass-through of 1080p/24Hz and 4K Ultra HD video. This sophisticated video processor also provides upconversion from standard definition (480i/480p) and high definition (720p/1080i1080p) sources to 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160 pixels), which lets you connect all your analog (composite/component) or digital (HDMI) video sources to the AVR-X2000 and then connect to your HDTV with just a single HDMI cable.

    HDMI Standby Pass-Through: When enabling the HDMI Standby Pass-Through function, regardless of whether the AV receiver is "On" or in "Standby" both audio/video streams from an HDMI input will be output to your television, via the receiver's HDMI monitor output. You can select between three HDMI through function modes.

    • HDMI Input: Selects the HDMI Input (1-4) for which the HDMI Standby Pass-Through function is enabled.
    • Last: The HDMI Standby-Through function is activated on the input source selected at the time of setting the AV receiver to the "Standby" mode.

    • Audio Playback: The AVR-X2000 supports digital music playback from an iPod, iPhone, or iPad using its front-panel USB (type-A) port. Simply plug your compatible Apple device into the receiver's front-panel USB port, using the cable that came with your iPod/iPhone/iPad. Stored music and music apps from your connected Apple device can be played through the AV receiver, bypassing the iPod/iPhone D/A converter for better sound quality. The iPod/iPhone/iPad can be controlled by the receiver's remote, or you can continue to use the Apple device's clickwheel or touchscreen. You can search for stored music on your iPod/iPhone/iPad by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Podcast, Genre, Composer, or Audiobook. Song/artist information and Album Art from stored music and music apps on your iPod/iPhone will display on your connected TV via HDMI (song/artist text will also display on receiver's front-panel display).
    • Video Playback: You can also view video from stored movies and movie apps from select iPods, iPhone, and iPads by connecting your Apple device to the AV receiver's front-panel USB and HDMI input. Use the Apple Lightning-to-Digital AV Adapter (472LT2HDMI sold separately), the Apple Lightning-to-USB cable that came with your device, and a HDMI cable (sold separately) to connect your iPod touch (5th gen), iPhone 5, iPad 4, or iPad mini to the AV receiver. Use the Apple Dock-to-Digital AV Adapter (47230PHDMI, sold separately), the Apple Dock-to-USB cable that came with your device, and a HDMI cable (sold separately) to connect your iPod touch (4th gen), iPhone 4/4S, or iPad (1/2/3). Using the HDMI input, video from your iPod/iPhone/iPad can only be navigated from your Apple device's clickwheel or touchscreen. Using the optional iPod/iPhone video dock (ASD-11R, sold separately), you can output video from your older Apple devices such as iPod video (5th gen), iPod classic (80/120/160GB), iPod touch (1st/2nd/3rd gen), and iPhone 2G/3G/3GS). This add-on dock only features an S-video output, so your TV must be equipped with an S-video input (the receiver has no S-video input).

    Convenience Features

    On-Screen GUI w/ Setup Assistant (via HDMI): The AV receiver's on-screen display (GUI) provides information about your system's settings (with video overlay). The on-screen graphical display combines large, clear text and icons, so you can easily make all necessary adjustments and settings during setup, to quickly and easily optimize the AVR-X2000 for your particular speaker setup and source equipment. The exclusive Denon Setup Assistant easily walks you through the whole process. When you control the sound volume, the volume level is displayed on-screen, and when you switch the input source, the name of the input source is also displayed on-screen. The on-screen menu can only be output to your TV via HDMI.

    Multi-Source/Multi-Zone: The Denon AVR-X2000 offers Zone 2 and All Zone Stereo functionality for playback of audio in two separate rooms of your home.

    • Zone 2: Denon's Zone 2 function lets you select a different audio source for listening in a second location of your home. The AVR-X2000 features a Main Zone (audio/video) and Zone 2 (audio only). The Main Zone offers 7.1-channel playback of your audio/video gear in your main entertainment room. Zone 2 allows stereo audio playback of another source connected to the receiver in another room of your home via left/right RCA audio or speaker level outputs. When using the AVR-X2000 to power speakers in a second room of your home, the main zone is restricted to 5.1-channels. When using the receiver's line output terminals for the second room you need an additional amplifier to power those speakers; the main Zone of the receiver remains 7.1-channel. The volume of Zone 2 can be controlled by the Denon receiver using either configuration or from your add-on amplifier when using the line-output.
      • Compatible Zone Sources: Only tuner, analog, USB/iPod, and Network/AirPlay sources can be played in Zone 2. You cannot select different AM/FM radio stations or different Network content for different zones.
      • Incompatible Zone Sources: It is not possible to play the digital audio signals from the HDMI, Coaxial, or Optical terminals in Zone 2. Video cannot be sent to Zone 2.
    • All Zone Stereo Function: The All Zone Stereo function allows you to enjoy the AV receiver's Main Zone audio source in Zone 2 simultaneously (regardless of input audio signal types; analog or digital). During the All Zone Stereo, 2ch playback is automatically selected for all zones and each zone will play at the same volume level. This is useful when you want to enjoy the same music at the same time in multiple rooms during a get together or party.

    Front-Panel Display Dimmer: The receiver features 4 display settings for the front-panel LCD window; Bright, Dim, Dark, and Off.

    Quick Select: The receiver's front-panel has four Quick Select buttons. Each button can be programmed with a specific input source, surround mode, and volume setting for easy recall.

    Source Rename/Hide: You can change the display name (up to 8 characters) of a selected input source. If an input isn't being used, you can hide it from the display so you don't have to scroll past it when you change sources.

    Text Search: You can search Internet Radio, USB, and DLNA content using keyword searches from the AV receiver's on-screen menu and remote control.

    Slide Shows/Picture View: You can play back still image (JPEG) files stored on a USB memory device or media server and pictures on Flickr website as a slide show. The display time can also be set. You can also play back music and a favorite picture at the same time via USB, Internet Radio, or Media Server.

    Personal Memory Plus: For each input, the receiver automatically memorizes the settings for input mode, surround mode, HDMI output mode, audio delay, etc. When the input source is switched, the settings last used for that source are automatically recalled. The surround parameters, tone control settings, and playback levels for the different output channels are memorized for each surround mode.

    Protection Circuit: This is a function to prevent damage to components within the power supply when an abnormality such as an overload, excess voltage, or over-heating occurs. In this unit, the power indicator blinks and the unit enters standby mode when an abnormality occurs.

    Timers: The receiver features a programmable Sleep Timer and Auto Standby function.

    • Sleep Timer: This function allows you to automatically set the power to standby after a predetermined amount of time has passed; set the sleep timer up to 120 minutes in 10 minute increments.
    • Auto Standby: The unit enters standby mode automatically when no commands are sent to the unit for the set time (30 or 60 minutes). Before it enters the standby mode, "Auto Standby" is displayed on the front-panel display of this unit and the on-screen menu.

    Remote Control

    Wireless Remote Control: The AVR-X2000 comes with an IR wireless remote control that can operate this receiver only. The remote control features Glow keys so it can easily be used in the dark.

    HDMI Control: The Denon AVR-X2000 can control select external audio/video components connected via HDMI which support HDMI control. When you make an HDMI connection with a TV or player compatible with the AVR-X2000's HDMI control function, you can perform the operations from the AVR-X2000's remote control; Power off, Switching of audio output devices, Switching of audio input devices, Volume adjustment, and Playback functions.

    Denon Remote App: The Denon Remote App lets you control the Denon Network A/V receiver using your Apple iOS or Android device. Simply download the free Denon Remote App from the iTunes App Store for the iPod touch/iPhone/iPad (iOS 4.3+), or download the free Denon Remote App from Google Play for your compatible Android device (1.5+). The AV receiver will need to be connected to the same network as your Apple iOS or Android device. This free Remote App lets you control the Denon A/V receiver's basic functions (power, volume, input, surround modes) from your Apple iOS or Android device. You can even navigate the A/V receiver's network and Internet content from your compatible Apple iOS or Android device. For added convenience, there are eight customizable home screen short cut buttons that allow you to tailor the look and function of the Denon Remote App to suit your needs.

    Custom Integration: The AVR-X2000 is part of Denon's IN-Command series line-up of receiver, which is Denon's certification to custom installers that the receiver has advanced connectivity and control features often required for custom home integration and theater applications using premium control systems. These features include a RS232C jack for use with whole house control systems and remote in/out IR command control.

    Excellent Receiver

    Written By RJC, Boulder, CO on Friday, July 25, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I checked the reviews before I purchased this surround sound receiver and found very good and helpful reviews. When I received it I was amazed at easy it was to set up. I've owned a few other receivers over the years and found nearly all of them a bit more challenging. This Denon receiver was not only quite simple to set up but play and operate as well. As for the sound it cranks out I am equally impressed, excellent highs, lows and midtones. Even though we use it for our 5.1 surround sound home entertainment system we use it more for just listening to music. I also purchased it for the ability to hook up our patio speakers, too. Great purchase. Would highly recommend this.
    Pros:
    Easy to set up and operate Excellent sound
    Cons:
    None

    Exceptional Value

    Written By Leo, Brghton, CO on Monday, July 21, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I am very satisfied with the selection of this receiver to replace my 15+ year old Yamaha. Initial concerns of quality, sound and functionality with such an inexpensive unit were quickly eliminated once the unit was set up. This is a must consider for anyone looking for a new AV receiver at a great price.
    Pros:
    1. The unit was a breeze to configure and optimize, and the sound is surprising good with my old Infinity Reference series 5.1 speakers. 2. I was pleasantly surprised how well the Denon remote app works on my I-Phone and the supplied remote is very nicely laid out. 3. The internet connectivity works flawless and we love the ability to listen to Internet Radio via the receiver.
    Cons:
    1. Air Play is Audio only, so I have to keep my apple TV connected to view movies and applications from a Mac Book or IOS device. 2. FM reception was poor to say the least but a powered antenna resolved this problem. 3. The remote will not control other devices leaving us to keep multiple remotes handy. 4. The unit is throws off a considerable amount of heat and should have been equipped with a cooling fan.

    I upgraded from a 12 year old Onkyo receiver. The Denon model was an affordable step into modern tech with all the features I wanted. It was a cinch to set up and use. The sound quality is exceptional as well. I am pleased all around.
    Pros:
    Easy of set up and use. Full of features for the price. Sounds great!
    Cons:
    Doesn't play digital audio in zone 2, but at this price no big deal to work around.

    This was my first networked receiver, I'll never own a non-networked receiver again.
    Pros:
    Setup was a breeze. The HDMI Pass-Through function is pure genius. iPhone remote app works very well for basic functions. On-screen display a bonus.
    Cons:
    Not many. The remote app could be easier to operate, especially in regards to networked music and videos.

    Denon IN-Command AVR-X2000

    Written By Hopz28, LaPlata,MD on Friday, July 11, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is the best receiver I've owned to date and the the price makes it that much better. You can have 5.1 and have 2 speakers in another room and listen to something different at the same time. Or 7.1 surround sound. This comes in hand especially for someone like me who has a REL Subwoofer (it wires up differently than a traditional subwoofer) I'm now able to have true 5.1 instead of 4.1. The pass through design is great for watching tv without having to turn on the surround sound or receiver. It also adjust to what your watching (stereo, Dolby, DolbyD)
    Pros:
    You can watch tv (using tv speakers) without turning on the receiver.
    Cons:
    The manual is on a CDROM, (no paper one) my computer is upstairs so that could be a little challenging when trying to adjust.

    Happy Camper

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I am very happy with this receiver (so far). The sound and video quality are superb. It has enough power and features to keep me happy and busy tinkering around for a while. The Audyssey feature seems to work pretty well. Once I google'd for tips on mic placement, Audyssey setup was a snap. I feel that I have received very good value for my money. I would recommend this product for a neophyte audiophile who is looking for a solidly made product with tons of great features, a handsome exterior, and high quality sound at such an affordable price point. As always, Crutchfield is great. Shipping times were accurate and box arrived in perfect condition. If I found a need for returns or replacement, I know Crutchfield would excel.
    Pros:
    Price. Sound Quality. Looks. Auddyssey. Power Rating
    Cons:
    No wifi. eManual. no USB port on back panel.

    This receiver is too good. Setup is a walk in the park. Speaker and component connections are a snap. Versatile enough for everything you do (Blu-Ray, DVD, CD, Netflix, YouTube, hulu, iTunes, internet radio, etc.). Zone2 function is such a bonus. Backyard BBQs with the kids in the pool this summer have a new element with iTunes and internet radio being provided through the zone 2 function.
    Pros:
    Zone 2, easy setup, plenty of connections
    Cons:
    Not a single one

    I've been using this for 3 months in my basement setup with a 5.1 Polk setup. It replaced on old Harmon Kardon that didn't have HDMI which became necessary when I got a bluray (yes the $100 purchase triggered more money being spent on this purchase). Now I run my cable and blu-ray through the receiver. Audyssey works really great. Now I clearly hear my back speakers. The caliberation makes a world of difference. One difference I've noticed is that you have to crank up the volume to like -10.0 db (feels like turning the knob to 7 on a scale of 1 to 10) to get full sound. I understand that volume increases exponentially, which feels right because 8 is like really loud. It doesn't really affect the performance, just have to get used to it. Overall very happy.
    Pros:
    Audyssey caliberation Easy setup Great sound
    Cons:
    Feels weird to dial up the volume at first

    Have had this unit in use for only a little while so far so can only give a 'brief' review but... So far so good. Was very easy to setup and it sounds great so... Hopefully it continues to function in this manner.

    I bought the receiver to power my patio speakers and in the near future to power a surround sound system for the living room. So I can only comment on a few things, since I'm not using the full potential of the receiver just yet. First off, the price is awesome for this great receiver, that was one of the main reasons why I jumped on this deal so early. The setup was easy and it didn't take long to figure out how to navigate thru the different modes and control the different zones. I really like the Denon Remote App I downloaded to my android for this receiver, I can control pretty much everything I need to listen to music, right on my patio. I am happy so far with this receiver. Looking forward to using its full potential when I get my surround sound speakers.
    Pros:
    Price, Zone 2 capability, network capability, length of warranty
    Cons:
    none so far

    I am very impressed with the sound quality of this receiver! I was worried about the drop in wattage from my Denon 3802 but the clarity of this new unit surpasses the 3802 by leaps and bounds. The video quality is a little buggy but I'm hoping that an HDMI cable upgrade will fix that.
    Pros:
    Amazing sound quality
    Cons:
    Video through HDMI can sometimes be a little off but a little tweaking solves that problem.

    Truly a great receiver from Denon. I bought this one to replace my aging AVR-985 and it so easily does that. Set up was a breeze and the Audessy mic helps it sound even better! Airplay (through connected Ethernet) is great and the phone app is simple to use.

    Easy set up, sounds great, network capability

    Denon avr-x2000

    Written By Wayne, Ark on Saturday, June 21, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    The first unit I received had a physical defect and Crutchfield immediately shipped a new unit and the exchange was easy and at no shipping cost to me. Setup was easy and the sound is great. Then I began having HDMI errors. The only way to get rid of errors was to perform a master reboot of the unit. I tried to perform Denon software updates but would always wind up with a 'communications failure' error and another master reboot had to done. The reboots were annoying because this meant all user settings were returned to factory defaults. After normal operation was restored, video drop outs would occur randomly and the cause became a mystery. During one drop out I noticed that a Denon update notice had occurred at the same time. I went thru the setup menu and disabled all update notifications and the unit has been operating perfectly for a couple of weeks. Overall, I love the unit and don't anticipate any future problems. I want to thank Crutchfield's tech staff for prompt service (only waited less than two minutes for all calls to be answered). I spoke to several representatives, but my main source was Travis. Travis is very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and extremely patient. As equipment becomes more complex, having immediate live support is invaluable. No doubt that my future purchases will be with Crutchfield. Also, I found that Denon's first level service was prompt but when problem was elevated to level two support, never heard back from them.
    Pros:
    Great sound
    Cons:
    HDMI problems, but believe issue is solved (see review above).

    Excellent Receiver

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This unit is awesome! Was fairly easy to setup from box. I did have to do a firmware update for the GUI to function. The only reason I didn't give this unit 5 stars is due to Airplay glitching every so often. I'm sure this will be fixed with future firmware upgrades. I highly recommend Denon receivers. I've had a Denon receiver for over 12 years and didn't even think twice in purchasing another Denon receiver.
    Pros:
    Outstanding sound quality, amazing volume, easy to use, and plenty of features.
    Cons:
    Airplay can be glitchy at times.

    For my needs, this has been a great AVR. With multiple HDMI ports, excellent internet functionality as well as Airplay this AVR has done everything I needed and I got it at a great price. I'm excited to get my second zone setup in the coming months, but have already been extremely impressed with the ease of use and power of this Denon receiver. I'd highly recommend for anyone in the market for a new AVR.

    Wonderful AVR

    Written By Aaron, San Francisco, CA on Sunday, June 15, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is my second Denon AVR and my last one was more than three World Cups ago. The setup has improved a lot and it is very easy even though I have upgraded all of my optic audio into HDMI audio. It also "upgraded" my 1080i and 1080p video into a near 4K video (I have a Sony Bravia high-end TV) and so I have a better audio and video experience.
    Pros:
    Good value for the money. It also "upgrade" your video as well.
    Cons:
    When you use the default video/audio pass-through (without using the amp), there is a 2 second delay but this is not a big deal at all.

    Great Product! Air play is awesome

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This product has everything I expected and more! The air play feature is amazing, and the overall sound quality is excellent! I really am blown away by how clear everything sounds. The Audyssey sound really made a huge difference in my experience as well. I was losing so much tonal quality from my old receiver just because I didn't understand the EQ. It's nice that this does it all for me!
    Pros:
    - Ease of use - Lots of HDMI inputs - Good price/value - Can control 2 zones independently - Audyssey sound
    Cons:
    - Not many optical/coax/component/composite inputs (if that really matters when running HDMI)

    Decent receiver

    Written By Jeff, Boonsboro, MD on Sunday, June 08, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    The setup and sound from this receiver is quite good especially for the discontinued price. I replaced my outlaw audio separates with this receiver and it sounds slightly better, However, it heats fast when driving Polk LSIM 703 hard. I enjoyed the speaker setup using the mic to balance the speakers. It beats listening to tones and manually adjusting the speakers. One other problem is the lack of different inputs. There are plenty of HDMI inputs no problem there. But if you don't have the latest equipment and need more then one digital toslink or coaxial connects you are out of luck. For the new price this is a good receiver.
    Pros:
    Great sound, easy setup
    Cons:
    Heats quick when pushed with good speakers, only one toslink and coaxial connects.

    Mixed Feelings

    Written By gadgetag, San Jose,CA on Thursday, June 05, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Truly a Value price which was listed for around $250 earlier. Has almost all convenient features you need except WiFi and Bluetooth.

    Maybe for small apartments or rooms or speakers which does not load the reeiver much, it will deliver good quality. I had AVR-3801 Denon from a decade and it still performs excellenr to my ears for music and movies. It does not have HDMI and Airplay which were my reasons to look for this receiver.

    Given huge positive reviews for this model and price on 2013 closeout was a no brainer decision. Once I hooked up, I could not match the sonic performance of AVR-3801 as much as I tried. Every music source or movie source and same speaker set always highlighted the lacking punch in this new model compared to the 3801.

    From pure spec point of view 95 watts per channel vs 105 watts per channel of 3801 did not seem to be much and I still believe there is some optimization and cost-cutting that probably is showing the sonic difference to my ears which may not be a problem for folks if not having a great receiver already you are replacing.

    I would have kept it if I could convince myself on the convenience it offered for HDMI and Airplay [if it was reliable].

    Many nice thought out features like cutting Audio to HDMI output when receiver is on so that you do not have to worry on reducing TV volume when receiver is on a huge deal for ease of use. Standby passthrough and video upscaling did improve even the Satellite hdmi output to near 1080p.
    Pros:
    Great HDMI integration and Standby Passthrough Price is great value Network features like DLNA, Internet Radio, Airplay [When it worked] Dialogue enhancement really works. Simplified Remote Video upscaling
    Cons:
    Sound quality. Have to turn up almost to -20 db the upper range of the volume control and still fails to drive the speakers decently loud enough. Punch in the music is missing compared to older receivers [which was 10+ pounds heavier...could be the transformer used is weaker in newer ones]. Audyssey setup was lousy and I had to revert to defaults. Unreliable Airplay.

    Runs smoothly

    Written By dsmith, Chicago on Wednesday, June 04, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is my first receiver. I only had a CD player for many years. I was searching for months and, coupled with a good price, purchased this about a month ago. So far the Airplay is its best feature for my use. I can be upstairs and control the music downstairs with ease. I also prefer Mediamonkey to play my concert files, which are all in FLAC. This is an easy add-on and works seamlessly. The app itself functions, though it's somewhat rudimentary. Monkeymote that I purchased is a huge benefit, as it'll display the artwork and lyrics, something that Denon's app does not do. The only problem I've had is the USB port in the front. Sometimes it doesn't read the files properly on my external HD and I have to unplug the system for ten seconds, and then it works perfectly again. It's frustrating that it's occurred once or twice already, but, perhaps because I've unplugged it several times (adding new music) it could add to the difficulties somehow. I also am probably one of the people that uses this without much concern for anything but audio. The fact that I need a TV (and not a monitor; the monitor shuts off when running setup) to get this thing up and running was a little bit much for me. Lugging a TV downstairs just for a setup was annoying.
    Pros:
    Ease of set-up; Airplay
    Cons:
    USB is finicky at best.
