Ready for the next breakthrough in surround sound? We are too, which is why we're so excited about the Denon AVR-X5200W IN-Command receiver with Dolby Atmos®. By adding overhead sound to your listening room, Dolby Atmos looks to be the biggest advancement in surround sound we've seen since we first ran wire to the rear of our media room. With nine channels of power, this receiver offers some cool setup options for Dolby Atmos playback, as well as multi-room audio. Naturally, it's got loads of digital music choices, as well as 4K picture quality and plenty of power to bring out the best in your speakers — no matter if they're on the floor or in the ceiling.
Dolby's latest surround sound technology was designed to bring a new level of immersion to your home theater. By employing in-ceiling speakers or special Atmos enabled upward-firing speakers that reflect sound off your ceiling, Dolby Atmos offers a greater sense of space for sound that's more three-dimensional. Already at work in film production studios and many movie theaters, Dolby Atmos represents a huge step in putting more "theater" into your home theater.
The AVR-X5200W lets you add two overhead or up-firing speakers (sometimes called "height" or "top" speakers) to a conventional seven-channel system — this is referred to as a 7.1.2 Dolby Atmos setup. Here's a breakdown of all the Dolby Atmos speaker configurations this receiver supports:
You can use one or two subwoofers with any of these configurations.
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-X5200W 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.
The free Denon Remote App turns your Apple or Android smartphone into a powerful Wi-Fi remote.
The 'X5200W's nine-channel amplifier offers impressive multi-room versatility. You can play music from three different sources in up to three rooms at the same time. Its powerful processing allows you to select from digital or analog sources for stereo playback across three different zones, including HDMI sources in Zones 1 and 2. The Zone 2 HDMI output is great for watching different content on different TVs at the same time. There's also a third HDMI output for use in your main zone — ideal for connecting both a TV and a projector.
All home theater receivers have some form of automatic speaker calibration to ensure the best sound for your setup and room. The AVR-X5200W takes this a few steps further with Audyssey's Platinum suite of features. In addition to its advanced MultEQ® XT32 calibration, you also get DSX® capability for use with front wide or height speakers. 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. And if you're connecting two powered subwoofers, Sub EQ HT can optimize bass response by calibrating each sub independently for balanced low-frequency sound throughout the room.
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.
Like all of Denon's IN-Command receivers, the AVR-X5200W 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-X5200W is certified for use with Control4 and Crestron home automation equipment.
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.
Receiver does have a good sound. The problem is with the receiver is not easy to set up and Denon manual is very poor. I would not buy another Denon product.
I absolutely love this receiver it has plenty of power for my 9.1 def tech setup!
Pros: Plenty of power Very nice sound stage!
Cons: No backlit remote
Just switched form a Pioneer Elite looking for 4K, internet radio, Wi Fi and more powered channels. This Denon has what I need at a good price.
Pros: Good Power, Wi Fi, 4K and easy on screen set up.
Cons: Knobs feel cheap when turning compared to my past well built Denon AVR 4802 and Pioneer Elite VSX-94 TXH
I have been a fan of Denon since before HDMI and have always been impressed with the clarity of sound in any format! Thank you Denon for making such great and reliable products. I got this receiver to power 9.1 speaker set up and to take advantage of the Dolby Atmos and Auro 3D features, which by the way are awesome. My only reason for giving this receiver 4 stars is that for the price, I was hoping to get HDCP compliant for 4K applications. However, there is the 6200, but I just got this one, so I'll have to wait for a while. None the less, this receiver Rocks! I have the 33UDCI hooked up via the Denon Link HD and, WOW! The sound is awesome even playing Netflix! The separation with Blu-Rays and all inputs is absolutely amazing. Will always be loyal to Denon! Thank you.
Pros: Awesome features, build quality and audiophile sound quality and upscaling features are awesome as well
Cons: No 4K support
I am very happy with this home theater receiver. Well worth the money! It is very powerful and capable of everything I needed. The set up is very easy and the assistant built into the set up makes it even easier. It came packaged very well and Crutchfield's delivery was very fast. I highly recommend this receiver if you want a high quality system with great features.
Pros: Does everything is says it can do and more!
This AVR is light and powerful, very easy to set up. DENON ATMOS is amazing sound, I have ceiling speakers and wow it's on point.
Pros: Easy set up, light weight, great picture quality.
Cons: None I know of!!!
PAfter deciding to replace my Onkyo TX-NR929, I read many online reviews of home theater receivers. I eventually narrowed my choices down to the Marantz SR7009, the Denon AVR-X7002, or the Denon AVR-X5002. I eventually settled on the latter, since it offered the features that I wanted at the lowest cost in the most attractive package (I didn't care for the front panel design of the Marantz, and the AVR-X7002 was very expensive). As is often the case, the user's manual was very confusing, and I couldn't make much sense if it. Fortunately, the onscreen setup guide is excellent, the best that I have seen (compared to those of Onkyo, Pioneer and Yamaha). Initial setup, including Wifi connection and Audyssey processing, took about half an hour, and the results were perfect. The ability to tune each subwoofer channel separately was especially useful. After that, though, I became quite confused. The "amp assign" function with its related speaker selections made no sense to me at all. I am running an 11.2 system and, at first, I could only achieve 9.2 processing. Eventually, after trying several different speaker selections, I was able to get output on all channels. The performance of this unit is remarkable. It produces a wide, deep and very detailed soundstage, with excellent transient response.
Pros: Outstanding performance, beautifully executed onscreen system setup
Cons: Front panel source select knob: no detents, feels as if it is rotating through cold molasses; high price
Met my expectations for a great Denon receiver; delivers on excellent performance. Set-up was a breeze.
Pros: Great performance, plenty of power, Atmos enabled, full Audyssey package, excellent on-screen set-up.
Cons: Wi-Fi a non-starter (I'm using ethernet), unclear where my Atmos speakers connect (I called and Denon explained it).
i been buying over 25 years surround sound system different brands this one the best i ever hade very easy to setup WOW

This discrete, monolithic amplifier design delivers optimum realism and stunning dynamic range. By using high current, high power discrete power devices and a monolithic amplifier layout, the Denon AV receiver is able to easily drive high quality speakers. The AV receiver's 9-channel Class AB amplifier is rated at 145-watts (into 8-ohms, at 20-20kHz, with 0.05% THD, driving 2 channels).
Amplifier Assignment: The AVR-X5200W's nine discrete amplifier channels can be configured to accommodate your type of home theater setup.
24-bit/192kHz DACs + AL24 Processing Plus Technology: This receiver is equipped with dual 24-bit/192-kHz DACs on all channels to decode and playback high-resolution recordings with less jitter and clearer sound. The AVR-X5200W also offers AL24 Processing Plus for all channels (including Front L/R, Center, Surround L/R, and Sub). Denon's proprietary AL24 Processing, an analog waveform reproduction technology, expands the original 16-bit audio data to 24-bits; and can support up to 192kHz sampling frequency. AL24 Processing Plus thoroughly suppresses quantization noise (the difference between the actual analog signal and the quantized digital signal) associated with D/A conversion of LPCM signals to reproduce the low level signals with optimum clarity that will bring out all the delicate nuances of your movie & music soundtracks.
Dynamic Discrete Surround Circuit (D.D.S.C.-HD): The AVR-X5200W is equipped Denon's Proprietary Dynamic Discrete Surround Circuit-HD, featuring a dual high-speed 32-bit floating point DSP processors for high-quality surround audio performance. All elements of the Surround Processor are optimized to the highest standards by the use of selected high performance and discrete components, particularly the A/D and D/A converters and the sophisticated DSP surround decoder.
Clock Jitter Reducer w/ Denon Link: The AVR-X5200W is equipped with a "Clock Jitter Reducer" that is capable of reducing jitter and phase noise that negatively affect sound quality. The "Clock Jitter Reducer" provided with this unit improves the sound localization, reproducing a natural sound field that is closer to the original soundtrack. The AVR-X5200W also incorporates Denon Link HD, Denon's proprietary jitter-free audio transmission technology, which is designed to work with Denon's DBT-3313CI Universal Blu-ray Player (033DBT3313, sold separately).
Multi-Channel Decoding Formats: The Denon AVR-X5200W 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.
Dolby Atmos: With Dolby Atmos, sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead, to fill your home theater with astonishing clarity, power, detail, and depth. The AVR-X5200W has the processing power to run a more enveloping 7ch or 9ch Dolby Atmos layout using 5.2.2, 5.2.4, 7.2.2, or 7.2.4* configurations utilizing ceiling mounted, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers (sold separately). A 5.2.2 speaker configuration is based upon a traditional 5.1 speaker layout complemented by 2 overhead or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers. A 5.2.4 configuration is based on a 5.1 speaker layout with 4 overhead, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers. A 7.2.2 configuration is based on a 7.1 speaker layout with 2 overhead, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers. A 7.2.4 configuration is based on a 7.1 speaker layout with 4 overhead, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers; *a 7.2.4 configuration requires an additional power amplifier.
Note: Globally, more than 100 cinema blockbusters have been released featuring Dolby Atmos soundtracks in the past two years, and many more are on the way. Major Hollywood studios are partnering with Dolby to create home video versions of current box office releases and previously released favorites for release in 2014 and 2015.
Dolby Surround: Dolby Surround offers an enhanced cinema experience to your Dolby Digital (Plus/TrueHD) and DTS (ES/HD) movie soundtracks using your existing 7.1ch or Dolby Atmos speaker setup. Dolby Surround enhances audio definition by improving the spatial dimension and overall audio definition of movie soundtracks. It does this by using four distinct surround zones that provide greater control over the exact placement of each detail in a movie sound track, so audio can be matched more accurately to the video on screen; this means more depth and greater realism for your movies. As a result, individual sounds are clearer and more distinct. It also improves the surround sound experience across the entire theater by widening the listening "sweet spot".
AURO-3D Upgrade ($199): Auro-3D is the next generation three-dimensional audio standard. It provides a realistic sound experience unlike anything before. By fully immersing the listener in a cocoon of life-like sound, Auro-3D creates the sensation of actually "being there". Thanks to a unique "Height" channel configuration, recorded acoustic reflections are reproduced by these speakers and are heard naturally due to the fact that sounds originate from around as well as above the listener. Once upgraded with the AURO-Codec Decoder ($199.00 cost), the AVR-X5200W is capable of decoding the original Auro-3D mix and playing back an Auro 10.1 channel configuration.
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:
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-X5200W 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 Platinum: AVR-X5200W features the Audyssey Platinum suite of powerful DSP features; including MultEQ XT32, Sub EQ HT/LFC, Dynamic Volume, Dynamic EQ, and Audyssey DSX.

No. Only zone 2 & 3 under certain conditions can produce mono output. Quite possibly because only about 1 in 10,000,000,000 would want to. [ Paul Sep 25, 2015 ]
There is no ability to downmix a single multi channel source input and output a mono signal to all channels at the same time. [ GLENN EDWARD Sep 25, 2015 ]

I have two wireless subwoofers installed and running on the main zone. I think, but I'm not positive, that you can run the subwoofers on zone 2 while the main zone is off. The important thing to make sure you do is to run "Setup Assistant" again after adding your subwoofers or any other speakers since your initial Setup Assistant session. Sorry I couldn't help anymore than that. [ Dave Feb 03, 2015 ]
Sorry, I am not sure about the question its answer since I have both subwoofers installed in zone 1 [ ANIL Feb 03, 2015 ]
I found the onscreen audio menus to be completely confusing -- I remember the subwoofer issue being a problem because I use two powered subs connected to the preamp output, and I had already selected the subwoofer option in the audio menus, but couldn't get any surround output at one point, including the subs. Eventually I found that the remote control has about 4 different sound modes for movies, games, etc. -- if you select the first one, I think you'll find all the speakers come back to participate in the show.

Well, it's implementation of CEC over HDMI is excellent so far, if you're ok with pass-thru for at least one of your sources and your display device has an open IR. If that's the case, and you expect to set it and forget it, you may not need the repeater. Certainly, you wouldn't need a repeater to change volume while watching a show. If you're going to use it as the HDMI switcher for all your sources, then you may be set already. I'd be interested in how you like it once it's set up, and how it compares to what you've used before. It certainly has all the bells and whistles. [ KEVIN Dec 03, 2014 ]
I have used IR "inputs" as on theX5200W, but I am currently using a Microsmith Hot Link Pro for multiple IR devices. Generally device-specific IR inputs require device-specific hardware to talk to them (in this case the Denon RC-616m which I've never used). [ Thomas Dec 03, 2014 ]
