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.

    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

    Written By KFBROWN, Woodbridge, Virginia on Sunday, October 04, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    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


    Written By Bruce, Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday, October 04, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Super product. It was relatively easy to install although I did need some assistance from Crutchfield on a couple of issues. It is extremely versatile, and I am now in the process of upgrading my speakers to take full advantage of this flexibility.

    Pros: Great value for the quality

    Written By QuintinR, Durham, NC on Friday, October 02, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

    Pros: Overall fantastic features; plenty of options

    Cons: Thought the remote control could've been a little more classier; seemed very lightweight, plastic and bland.

    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.

    Awesome Receiver

    Written By Austin, Ohio on Sunday, September 27, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    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.

    Denon AVR-X2100W

    Written By Mike, Indiana on Thursday, September 24, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    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

    Written By DavidL, Lithonia, GA on Wednesday, September 23, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    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

    Written By JasonM, California on Tuesday, September 22, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    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.

    Written By JFranklin, California on Tuesday, September 22, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    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.

    Written By Beattie.., Florida on Sunday, September 13, 2015

    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!

    HD Amp

    Written By DieHardGramps, Minnesota on Tuesday, September 08, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    So far the amp is working great. My speakers sound amazing and it controls like a breeze. It was easy to set up and use. The speaker wires were easy to attach, and they made a good connection. One thing I really liked was the bonus speaker cable labels that came with the unit.

    Pros: Sound, price, and ease of use. Having all the HDMI, being 4k compatible and a rich, deep sound are all great qualities. Audyssey gives a great rich deep sound, and a booming bass and high highs. If you have hearing problems, one of my favorite features is the voice booster for all programs. It makes hearing people over the explosions and background sounds easy to hear.

    Cons: Audyssey sounds amazing, but seems to lower the volume for no good reason.

    I am very satisfied with this unit. It was an easy set up - the hardest part was untangling the mess of the old system. The remote is actually intuitive I have two zones, I bluetooth and of my devices to either zone, when I play xbox, I actually choose "game" and it works. I set up pandora through internet radio (where there are like 4 others choices. I also have a Bose surround integrated in. It accommodates all this. I don't feel I've even scratched the surface of all thats possible, but it is easily all that I need.

    Pros: Multi Function, easy of install and intuitive and the I feel like I got it at a good price.

    I needed a surround sound receiver for the home theater and pre-amp outputs to a second amplifier connected to 12 pairs of ceiling speakers spread throughout the house each with its own volume control. I use Pandora to send music throughout the house. With one call to Crutchfield, I was directed to where the setting was to make Zone 2 a ture pre-amp output and how to adjust the level of sound to the second amplifier for optimal sound quality.

I would certainly recommend this receiver for anyone who is looking for a very good value.

    i purchased this a the brains for my whole house audio system and I have been disappointed yet. thing controls 25 speakers indoors and out as well as my TV and the necessary components in my great room. I couldn't be happier.

    Pros: Everything...It does what it is supposed to.

    Cons: none

    AVR x2100w DENON

    Written By Tommybear, Maryland on Wednesday, August 05, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The AirPlay was a pleasant seamless surprise -- one click and John McLaughlin jumped from my crummy iPad tweakers to the real speakers tied to the AVR. If the intermittent handshake problems with ARC HDMI were unique to DENON I would have given four stars; they're not. Better HDMI cable ($25 instead of $9) has helped a bit as does turning on my tv last... But the issue rears up every other day. So far it's alway connected successful the second try. Knock on wood.

    Pros: Features, internet connectivity, clean sound -- very low harmonic distortion, Airplay, USB port in front.

    Cons: The audessy system did little for me as I technically have just a 3.1. Manual set up was nice but can't figure why no real equalizer or bass/treble independent controls...

    Stay away, if used to near flagship models

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought this to replace my nearly 10 years old Sony DA5300ES which broke-down. Coming from a flagship model I was not too impressed with the build and sound quality of the X2100. The room correction software did not do a good job equalizing my subwoofer--bass sounded boomy and less impactful. Bluetooth worked after some coaxing, i had to do a soft reset on my ipad. Denon has placed this as a mid-level receiver. I think the MSRP is inflated considering the quality of this AVR.

    Pros: decent amount of features, not bad for a street price. easy to setup

    Cons: some areas of the menu not very intutive poor subwoofer integration

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great receiver and always excellent service from Crutchfield. Had a bit of trouble deciding how to connect my DVD & Cable box and which HDMI cables to use. Crutchfield answered quickly and helped me out. If you have Spotify, this is the best pairing software ever. Just click on an icon on your Spotify window on your phone and the receiver automatically switches to play it. No waiting for bluetooth connect, etc. All features are as described. I used banana connectors to install all speakers and highly recommend them.

    Pros: Spotify connection software. Ease of setup with microphone to position speakers

    Cons: none

    Great reciever, very user friendly from the setup to picking your sound fields. It's awesome that I can sync up my phone to the receiver through the blue tooth option and play Pandora. Stream your favorite radio station. Sound is very balanced and clean. Picture is very sharp and vibrant. I love the 4k option. The sales assistant was very helpful and he had it to me within 2 days free shipping.

    Pros: Clean, crisp, balanced sound. Very user friendly.

    Cons: I should of bought it sooner.

    This is a good mid-range receiver. A lot of great features. Especially the wireless function and apps. It sounds great with my polk audio speakers.

    Pros: Lighter than my old Onkyo receiver. Sounds great with manual tweaking. Awesome features!

    Cons: None

    Great for what I needed. Audio video 5 speaker sound in bedroom plus separate zone, 2 speakers over outdoor hot tub off the bedroom.

    Pros: Lots of combinations of gadget adding. Features and power at a reasonable cost. Demons app for iPhone is a good little feature.

    Cons: None so far.

    Denon AVR-X2100W Review

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have had my Denon for about a month now and am very happy with my purchase. I am running it with my Energy RC series speakers. Set up was a breeze and very user friendly. Navigating through menus is very straight forward and makes setting up/adjusting features very easy to do. I ran Audyssey which did a pretty good job dialing in my system and only required minimal tweaking afterward. Sound quality is great with both movies and music, movies sound excellent at both high and low volumes thanks to the dynamic EQ. The Internet radio has proven to be a great feature in my family. Look forward to getting more and more use out of my Denon!

    Pros: Ample HDMI 4k bypasses, straight forward user interface/set up, Internet radio.

    Cons: Not as much power as I would have liked, really need to turn it up to enjoy music at higher volumes.

    Tunes by the pool

    Written By HTeverywhere, Tennessee on Monday, July 13, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    We use this to provide music outside to our pool area. Was a bit of a pain to have to hook it up to a tv to set it up, which meant we needed an hdmi cable. So hooking it up to a tv was not convenient. No big deal I suppose, but we are only using it for music at this point. WIFI was easy to setup by using our iOS devices. Everything was easy, nice iphone app. We have other Denon receivers and all have been good. We actually switched from Onkyo, glad we did.

    Pros: wifi, online services (Pandora), sound quality, iphone app, price

    Cons: none really, other than it requires a tv and hdmi cable to setup, but that seems to be standard anymore.

    Denon 2100 Purchase, Setup, and Sound

    Written By Don Indianapolis, Indiana on Sunday, July 12, 2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    My 1970 Receiver died, so I was pretty nervous about all the new hook ups. Wow, this thing sounds awesome!!!!!!!!, easy to hook up, and great stereo fidelity! I'm still playing thru some old Boston Acoustics and it sounds great. The setup menu was easy, just step thru and answer the questions while it's hooked up to the TV monitor. You do need to have HDMI chords so don't forget to order a chord to your tv and a chord for your DVD. I also have a Roku so needed one for it. The only complaint, it I like it to keep the stereo in All Stereo mode when I turn it back on. Don

    Pros: Great sound, easy to setup, really awesome! Already using Pandora when we have company (don't have to change CDS)

    Cons: Still can't Bluetooth to windows... but... then again.. that's windows! It never works well. My chromebook works, my apple products work... hum... makes you think it's just windows again! Had the same problem at my condo with my Sony system.

    Just what I needed.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This was a replacement for a unit (not a Denon) that had died. It is far better than my previous unit. I have it my LAN plugged in and it adds versatility that I did not have before... I am completely satisfied with the unit and the support that I got from Crutchfield was outstanding. This is a good way to go.

    Pros: Great sound and versatility.

    Cons: Manual was on a disc. I would have preferred a hard copy, but this is not a deal breaker.

    Denon makes an awesome product, I like the options that the 2nd audio zone and the Airplay gives you. The "X" series carries an extra-long manufacturer warranty too!!

    Pros: Wi-Fi, Airplay, zone 2 audio, 4K, Multi-channel stereo sound mode

    Cons: still need more analog inputs for zone 2, people still have record players, cd players,...

    I replaced a five year old Sony STR-DG720 with this unit because I was having issues with the second zone for my deck speakers. Actually the issue was that there isn't a second zone on that unit. I was using the A/B speaker selection, but it just was not able to work for me. Anyway, The Denon is heads and shoulders above my Sony. The functionality and usability is light years ahead. The available app lets me select my deck zone right from my keister! It's awesome! Buy it!

    Very happy with my Denon X2100. My media room was getting ready to be installed and saw this AVR on sale and jumped on it quick. So far it would have been worth the full price so I'm ecstatic on the deal I got and the performance of the unit. Very easy install and programming.

    Pros: Everything
