Denon AVR-X2200W (2015 model) vs. AVR-X2100W (2014 model)

New features for 2015:
  • Full support for 4K video with HDCP 2.2 on all HDMI inputs and both monitor outputs
  • Dolby Atmos for more immersive sound; DTS:X available via future firmware update
  • Faster Wi-Fi for easier streaming of high-resolution audio content
  • Improved onscreen graphics for easier setup

A strong audio and video performer

If you're a music lover, sound quality may well be your top priority in a receiver. But that doesn't mean you're willing to sacrifice picture quality when it comes to movies and TV. Fortunately, the Denon AVR-X2100W IN-Command receiver requires no such sacrifice. This is a video-lover's receiver, with features to help you get the most out of all your video sources. Advanced video processing can upconvert standard-definition analog signals to HDMI in 1080p or 4K for use with HD and Ultra HD TVs. There are component video connections to bring older gear into the fold. There's also a second HDMI output for large home theaters with multiple displays such as a projector and TV. Of course, the 'X2100W also sounds wonderful, feeding your speakers plenty of power and decoding all the latest high-resolution audio formats to please critical listeners and impress anyone with a set of ears.

Wireless versatility for all your digital tunes

With all the various devices we use to play music, the hardest part can be playing them all through our home theater speakers. The AVR-X2100W takes all the mystery out of this process. Have a networked computer or music server?  Built-in Wi-Fi along with DLNA compatibility will place your entire collection at your fingertips. Have a tablet and smartphone? If it's an Apple® device, AirPlay has you covered. If it's Android™ or another platform, built-in Bluetooth will do the trick. Are you a subscriber to Spotify's premium service? Access their entire library through the Spotify app and play it all back with this receiver. Plus, there's Pandora, SiriusXM, and free Internet radio streams all accessible using this receiver on its own.

Multi-room playback

Denon Remote App

The free Denon Remote App turns your Apple or Android smartphone into a powerful Wi-Fi remote.

Wish you could have music playing in two rooms? The 'X2100W can help you do it. Its multi-zone feature means it can power speakers in two rooms simultaneously — playing different songs in each or the same song in both rooms. Use the surround back speaker outputs to power stereo speakers in another room. Connect them in a kitchen, bedroom, or out on a porch to listen to tunes while the rest of the family enjoys a movie in 5.2-channel surround sound in the home theater.

Sound that's tailored to your room

To get sound that's perfectly optimized for your room and speaker setup, you'll need to calibrate your speakers. Luckily, that's as easy as plugging the included microphone into the AVR-X2100W's front panel and pressing "Start." The mic will take speaker measurements as test tones are played. Then, the receiver's Audyssey processing will adjust settings to guarantee well-balanced surround sound in your room. Audyssey's Dynamic EQ and Volume features help your system perform better at lower volume levels and minimize large volume fluctuations while watching TV or movies.

Control it with your smartphone or tablet

Denon's free Remote App can turn your smartphone or tablet into a powerful Wi-Fi remote control. Download it on your Apple or Android device and use it to change sources, adjust the volume, control music in multiple zones, and listen to Internet and network music sources.

Home automation capabilities

Like all of Denon's IN-Command receivers, the AVR-X2100W offers useful home automation features. It can be set up and operated by a computer over a wired or wireless home network via IP control. There's an infrared input on the rear-panel, for use with external remotes and control systems. And the AVR-X2100W is certified for use with Control4 home automation equipment.

    Total Failure

    Written By Tom, Minnesota on Sunday, November 22, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have had two of these now. On the first would one I could never get air play to work without it dropping out. After lots of work with Crutchfield they sent me a new unit.

    The second one worked for almost two months before it started to power cycle. After working with Crutchfeild support again we worked through every connection and decided it was the ground wire on the sub. It worked again for a couple more hours until it started to fail again. Then it was the cable box that caused it to power cycle.

    After that it was connecting the flat screen tv. And finally if anything was connected including just the power cord was cause it to power cycle. Now I stuck going back to Denon for warranty.

    Pros: Easy Set up

    Cons: Poor quality

    Great receiver

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Very happy with this AV receiver. Sound is great and setup was relatively easy. I did have one question regarding a component input but a call to Crutchfield provided a quick answer and fix. I am glad I purchased this unit and glad I bought it from Crutchfield. Standard (free) delivery was in 2 days!

    Pros: Sound, set up, Crutchfield technical back up both before and after purchase.

    Cons: It is last year's model but the savings were considerable and the changes not too relevant for me.

    This receiver has all the features you need. It sounds great with my Bose speakers.

    Pros: Supports pretty much every sound mode from dobly pro II to dobly digital to dts.

    Cons: You can't do some things without the remote because the buttons don't exist on the receiver. Also wish you could reassign the quick select buttons on the front.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is an Excellent receiver for the price. Great sound and extremely easy to set up and adjust with the on screen commands. This unit replaced my Onkyo and is far exceptional for about the same price. Would highly recommend. Very pleased with this purchase and the Crutchfield team as a whole.

    Pros: Easy set up. Great sound. Plenty of HDMI ports for more expansion in the future.

    Cons: None

    Great receiver!

    Written By Kyle, Michigan on Wednesday, October 28, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Receiver produces great sound with my Definifive Technology speakers! Really like the bluetooth capability. I used the Audysee speaker calibration which worked amazing. I accidentally had the wire polarity incorrect on one speaker and the system actually detected it. I think it would be tough to find a better receiver for even half again as much as this one costs. Very happy with my purchase.

    Pros: Great sound, low power useage which means low heat produced so i can stack my bluray on top of it. Audysee works amazing.

    Cons: Not the best reception on the FM radio antenna. Even some strong stations do not come in. The remote is very basic. I might end up getting a nice universal remote. The Denon phone remote app is terrible.

    Awesome buy

    Written By Brent, Pa on Tuesday, October 27, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    What a deal... 2014 model discounted!

    Only spec less than ideal is that Its not entirely future proof as it doesn't support hdcp 2.2 for 4K content from future Copyrighted sources. What is the chance said cbl box or bluray player won't have optical audio out or coaxial... Slim to none as there are still plenty of older receivers, soundboards, etc people run that are non HDMI enabled (or no pass through or ARC). I already have a 4K tv and still didn't care about this 'shortcoming' because switching the TV source to another input and letting audio only go to AVR is no big deal. This receiver has the delay timers to be able to sync the audio if necessary. Some TV's support optical audio out but it might be downgraded to stereo. That's a long way off though and something I'm happy to live with to have that money available towards upgrading other gear. I felt this was an Awesome deal.

    Some have pointed out the GUI's for Pandora, etc are slightly crude, I don't care at all... Control from remote app on iPhone or iPad. Yes that app could be improved slightly, but that's software which can be updated.

    Setup was very easy, included mic and tripod were easy to use. Took a few minutes to see how to get to Pandora vs internet radio. Spotify must be controlled from a mobile device, (and remote app) no built in gui, that was a small curveball.

    This thing sounds great and the options make it very flexible to optimize for night music, etc. I am thrilled with the feature set!

    Pros: Price 95 wpc (2 driven) into 8 ohms! I have efficient speakers but can't listen over 3/4 volume, and even that isn't sustainable!

    Cons: Understand the 4K limitations, then buy it anyway!

    Love it

    Big difference night and day, from my 20 year old pioneer system.

    Pros: I am very satisfied with this system.

    Cons: Denon app primitive. I noticed that when listening to a song as soon as the bass kicks in, the volume level would adjust (lower). Looks like the amplifier is trying to compensate.

    Great receiver. Awesome features and budget friendly. Works well with almost any setup and Denon support will help setup the way you want

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Just updating a 12 year old Yamaha. The Denon arrived without a remote. You cannot use or setup the receiver without a remote, so I had to wait 3 days for a remote. Once I got it all setup everything worked fine. Performance isn't any better than my old Yamaha, I just have a digital update and was able to eliminate a few cables for a great price. Crutchfield has great support and provided much assistance!

    Pros: Wifi, USB, HDMI.. pretty much everything the 12 year old Yamaha didnt have.

    Cons: Wish it had more functionality from the front panel.

    Written By PaulLP, California on Thursday, October 15, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This was purchased to replace an 8 year old top of the line Denon AVR that stopped working. I loved the old unit and was very disappointed that it failed, and that a replacement circuit board wasn't available any longer. Realizing this was more of the middle of the line for Denon I expected less performance from it, and less features. The setup was way easier with this unit, and hookups were also easier as there were less then half the amount of inputs on the rear panel then the older unit. I was told by sales that a lot of what you pay for in higher end units are more inputs to accommodate many types of connectors. This unit does shine though with 7 HDMI inputs on the back and even one on the front panel, which handled my setup way better then the older unit which had just 2 HDMI inputs. Getting to the most important part of the review is to talk about the sound quality. At first I was a little underwhelmed by the sound, listening to music and movies. I had carefully run the Audessey setup, but found that a bit of tweaking here and there made a big improvement. Compared to the older unit the Surround imaging is clearly better. Overall the sound quality is quite good. It lacks a bit of the punch that I had before but it delivers an excellent sound stage, especially for movies. One quirky thing is that the first few nights watching tv it suddenly switched to Bluetooth. A call to Denon quickly straightened out that issue, which was to unpair the Blutooth device after using it.

    Pros: simple setup, excellent price and service from Crutchfield, fast delivery and outer boxed, way to go Crutchfield!

    Cons: None really, consider this an excellent value and a strong performer

    Wonderful except the bluetooth glitch

    Written By Anonymous, Ohio on Sunday, October 11, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Love the unit overall. Like the phone app and the independent amps for zone 1 and 2 so you can play different sources at the same time. Sound calibration worked great, made my old cambridge soundworks speakers seem like brand new compared to running them on the old Onkyo. Wide range of inputs. Small glitch in the Bluetooth; the first time a device pairs I must switch the Denon from wireless to wired, let it time out (no cable connected to the wired), hit the off button and then on again, this basically "reboots" the wireless I think. It will now pair. After the first time the device seems to always pair normally. Had to do this only the first time on all three devices I have paired so far (iPhones). Otherwise get connection errors on both the phone and the receiver.

    Pros: Dual zone amps, lots of inputs, nice sound calibration raises the bar on the dolby experience, bluetooth and wireless convenience , nice phone app.

    Cons: Bluetooth pairing requires a pain in the neck wifi reboot the first time paring a device.

    Truly Impressive Unit

    Written By Solz A., New York on Sunday, October 04, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is the first time I've purchased anything from Crutchfield and I must say I've received an impressive unit with great customer service to boot. What impresses me about this unit the most is the dynamic sound it produces. For audiophiles interested in getting high end sound without taking out a second mortgage this unit is for you. Paired with the right speakers you will get rich highs, great mids, and extremely powerful lows without noticeable distortion.My family and friends come by and say they have a better experience with sound at my house then the local cinema. Music plays just as well with this system. This receiver replaces another great Denon unit, the AVR-591. The difference in audio quality is big in favor of the x2100w. It also offers numerous connections and great networking options that are serving me well. The only complaint I have is that it can be a hassle to update its firmware although Denon has improved in recent months. For anyone on the fence about getting this receiver go for it. You will be getting a $700 unit for under $400. I would like to thank service rep Rhonda for helping me in my decision. She was well informed when describing what this receiver can do. There so much under the hood with this system that I can say with confidence I've only scratch the surface of what it can do.

    Pros: Crisp, clean, powerful sound. Many input options. Easy setup.

    Cons: It can be a hassle to update its firmware.

    Extremely Pleased with this Denon Receiver. I received this item in two days from ordering - BONUS!!! I then spent a sunday afternoon hooking this utem up and adding a center channel speaker as well as a subwoofer because I could sense the potential of this home theatre receiver. It was better than expected. I was blown away by the ability to Bluetooth 9 separate items to this receiver. I will use the second zone of the receiver on my new patio when I finish that patio and firepit. I looked at a lot of different receivers before I chose this one. I am very very happy at this purchase and the sales price makes it even a better purchase.

    Pros: easy to set up easy remote operation great options in music mode as well as game mode HDMI ports for everything

    Cons: taller than most receivers

    Phenomenal receiver; powerful, intuitive; Denon continues to make awesome stereo equipment

    Pros: Overall fantastic features; plenty of options

    Fine, except for the WiFi

    Written By gbb, Massachusetts on Thursday, October 01, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Impressive unit for the most part. Lots of connectors, including two optical digital inputs. This unit shares Mediabolic's network media server embedded software. The problem I've had is that the WiFi connection is not reliable. Once or twice a week (I've had the unit for 6 weeks), the unit is unable to make a network connection to my home WiFi network. Other devices in the same room have no trouble, and, in fact, the signal strength is rated at 100% when the unit is asked to scan for networks.

    I expect to use this as an appliance - it always works when I turn it on, and I don't have to do a rain dance with power cycles or re-entering the network information to get it to work. Mostly, if it doesn't work the first time after turning it on, it will after turning it off and back on again. Sometimes using the remote to turn it off/on is enough, but sometimes it requires that I get up and flick the switch on the power strip. Not acceptable. I've returned it.

    I tried working with Denon support for a couple of weeks. I was a bit confused at first at what the problem was. When I selected "Internet Radio", or "Online Music", pressing the enter key on the remote for "Favorites" or "Internet Radio", there was no response on the screen. However, I finally noticed that when I selected "Pandora", and clicked "enter" on the remote, the unit reported no network connection. Denon support misdiagnosed this problem as a faulty remote, and sent me a new one.

    Pros: High quality sound, lots of flexibility and ease of use to assign inputs to connectors, nice layout on the remote.

    Cons: WiFi mostly works, but not well enough for me to want to keep the unit. I mostly use it to listen to Internet Radio.

    Very buggy networking

    Written By jaustell, Texas on Wednesday, September 30, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The initial setup is a huge pain. It is not possible to use as a stereo without first going through the TV based setup. The sound quality was nice until attempting to use any of the networking. Trying something as simple as change the volume via the Android app would cause music playback to stutter every 30 seconds or so until the unit was powered off or the WiFi was reset. The same for the web based configuration settings. As soon as the page was accessed the same audio stutter would start. Closing the tab or browser did nothing. And no, this was not with internet radio...strangely it interfered with a hard-wired audio source! Thankfully Crutchfield has the no hassle return policy.

    Pretty nice system, one minor flaw so far

    Written By stevez, Massachusetts on Wednesday, September 30, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    So far so good. Great set of features. Only flaw so far is when turning on surround sound while watching a channel it will be garbled. Changing the channel and going back clears things up. Not sure why, but has happened a few times. Denon ap for android is a nice plus.

    Pros: features

    Cons: Lack of a paper manual is a minor annoyance.

    Everything we needed

    Written By JonK, the Washington, DC Area on Tuesday, September 29, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Needing to replace our 4 year old Onkyo home theater receiver pretty quickly, and after chatting with an incredibly helpful and knowledgeable Crutchfield adviser, we settled on the Denon AVR-X2100W. The adviser asked if I was comfortable with opting for last year's model, at a greatly reduced price. Given the combination of Crutchfield's excellent technical support and the Denon warranty, I jumped at the chance. Setup was a breeze. In fact, I am not sure it could have been easier. We have set it up as a 5.1 system in the living room, and using Zone 2 to control the speakers on the patio. Setting the sounds levels in all 5 speakers was a snap (as close to plug and play, in a different sense, as you can get). And, so far, both Pandora and Sirius are working perfectly. The firmware updated easily.

    Pros: Easy set up. Fair price. Has all the features we need (still exploring them)

    Cons: Haven't run into a problem or short fall, yet.

    This is an incredible feature-packed receiver, especially at it's current price (purchased at $399). With the WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities, I can easily turn on the receiver and navigate to Pandora without turning the TV on. Extremely happy with my purchase. Of use to current or future owners: When streaming online music, there is a setting for a screensaver so the image of Pandora, Spotify, etc, isn't burned into your screen.

    I have only had the Denon receiver for a week or so, but it works extremely well. My only issue is I wish I would have gotten a higher powered one. But the settings are very user friendly and offer quick setup. The various options of connecting to it are excellent: bluetooth, wifi, hdmi, aux, etc. It saves your listening settings for each input so the next time you reconnect it, you're good to go. Very happy with this receiver.

    Pros: Bluetooth Wifi User friendly

    Cons: None

    Had this receiver for about 1 week. So far everything is good. Setup was pretty easy. I do like the sound setup with the microphone. Much more in depth than other products I have used. Very happy so far

    Pros: Sound setup

    Very intuitive easy setup.

    Pros: I really liked the calibration of speakers. It helped identify what speakers were out of phase. Downloadable apps for my tablet are a cool feature. I can adjust volume and other features with ease. Internet radio now allows me to listen to local FM station that I had reception problems over the antennae. Wifi works great although I'm an Ethernet hard-wired type guy.

    Cons: None I can think of. Very impressed with the technology.

    Simple setup, great features

    Extremely simple to set up. Everything works great and is simple to operate.

    Pros: - Simple setup - Ease of operation - Great value compared to the competition

    Cons: My only complaint is that during automatic firmware updates, which can take a long time to download and install, the receiver becomes unusable. It's only happened once, but it was a bummer that you lose functionality while it happens.

    Works awesome! Very easy to set up and use. Little confusing on where to hook up 2nd Zone speakers. After a little searching around I found that they just attach to the back center surround sound speakers. (They are assignable) The Audyssey mike (included) was amazing. When I first set it up I didn't do any adjustments. It sounded ok. The next day I used the Audyssey mike and just followed the steps on the screen. It was very easy and it found a couple of speakers that were out of phase. After the adjustments it made, it was like night and day. I really didn't know my surround sound speaker could sound so good. And my speakers aren't that nice. I really like being able to control it with my iPhone, although the remote is very easy to use as well. There may be better receivers out there but I really couldn't ask for anything more.

    Pros: Sound AWESOME! Very easy to set up and use.

    Cons: A little confusing on where to hook up zone 2 speakers. Easily figure out though.

    Yes it's great but.

    Impressed by the wide scope of possible inputs. Great product but there could be improvements. The most serious problem I have come across so far is the lack of a volume control in the set up process. I was totally frustrated by the extreme level of volume when accidentally switching to Internet Radio from CBL/SAT. The volume level was obscene and could have been dangerous. The sound overall is really good and I think this is going to be a big winner over my previous system when it comes to TV program and DVD's sound. I am sure that the intricacies of the latest types of Dolby and other sound systems will help with that too. I am impressed with the simplicity of the remote compared with my previous one. That will make things so much simpler and easier to control.

    Pros: Wide range of possible inputs. More HDMI inputs and ease of inputting.

    Cons: Sound level control in set up.

    We were able to acquire this Denon receiver at a good price, more affordable then other mfrs units with similar features. Some bumps with the onscreen setup, but up and running quickly. Very happy with performance so far.

    Pros: Great price vs. competitors, ability to integrate digital and non-digital components, easy online order and quick delivery.

    Cons: Some workarounds needed due to difficulty with onscreen setup, but in the end success!

    I have not had time to get this item up and running because of network problems. I hope to do that in this coming week and I will respond accordingly. I hope that by completing this I will not be able to comment when I have had use of it.
