Network + Tuner Functions
Equal Power Amp Design w Discrete Circuitry: The Denon
AVR-X3000 is equipped with a 7 channel power amplifier rated at 105-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-X3000'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-X3000's seven discrete
amplifier channels can be configured to accommodate your type of home theater
- Surround Back: The AV receiver's amplifier channels can
be configured as Front Left/Right, Center, Surround Left/Right, and Surround

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
- Rock Arena: For rock and popular music sources, this
mode surrounds you with reflected sound of the kind you would hear at a live
- Jazz Club: This mode recreates the atmosphere of a live
house where the ceiling is low and you are enveloped with rich doses of
- Matrix: With this mode, you can add rich reflected
sound to 2-channel stereo music sources where reflected sound is normally
- 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-X3000 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-X3000 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 XT
automatically sets speakers to suit your room's listening environment and the
speakers' characteristics. The AV receiver even offers Audyssey DSX which adds
front speaker effects
- Audyssey MultEQ XT: Audyssey MultEQ XT technology helps
create an optimal acoustic profile for your home theater. Using the included
setup microphone, Audyssey MultEQ XT 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 8 measurement points and automatically
tailors the sound for top audio fidelity. You can set the Audyssey MultEQ XT
to one of the following modes.
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: 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; adjust from -20 to +6
dB at 63 Hz, 125 Hz, 250 Hz, 500 Hz, 1 kHz, 2 kHz, 4 kHz, 8 kHz, and 16
- Off: Turns equalizer off.
- 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.
- Audyssey Dynamic Surround Expansion (DSX): Audyssey DSX
adds front effect speakers to improve spatial sound reproduction. Starting
with a 5.1 channel system, DSX adds front Wide and/or front Height channels
for better sound staging (although both wide and height speakers can be
added, only one pair is used at a time). DSX also applies Surround
Envelopment Processing to enhance the blend between the front and surround
Surround Parameters: You can adjust the following surround
- 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 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
- Denon Original Surround Mode Settings: While listening
in one of the Denon Original Surround Modes, there are three further
enhancements you can adjust:

of your desired acoustic environment when using specific Denon Original
Surround Modes; select Small, Medium small, Medium, Medium large, or
- Effect Level: This function adjusts the effect
signal level from 1 to 15 when using specific Denon Original Surround
- 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.
- Audyssey DSX Settings: While listening in the Audyssey
DSX audio format, there are two further enhancements you can adjust:
- Stage Height: adjust sound stage height (+/-10) when using
front height speakers
- Stage Width: adjust sound stage width (+/-10) when
using front wide speakers
- Center Gain: During DTS NEO:X, this function distributes the
dialog output from the center channel to the front left and right channels
and widens the sound image in t he front.
Audio Enhancements: The Denon AVR-X3000 receiver provides
various audio enhancements to deliver a high-quality listening experience every
- 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-X3000 offers the following volume
- Volume Scale: You can choose to display an Absolute

AVR-X3000 to power speakers in a second room of your home, the receiver's
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
