- Dolby Surround:
Dolby Surround offers an enhanced cinema experience to your 2ch and
multichannel movie soundtracks using your existing 5.1ch, 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".
- DTS Neural:X: DTS:X incorporates Neural:X, the latest
spatial remapping technology from DTS, which provides a fully immersive
output for all types of source content; this includes DTS bitstreams and
non-encoded (PCM) data. Neural:X delivers a thrilling sense of immersive
sound to your speaker layout regardless of the original source format. DTS
Neural:X will require a
- DTS Neo:6: DTS Neo:6 is an advanced matrix decoder that
takes any two-channel source (including television broadcasts, CDs and DVDs)
and expands it into five or six channels. It also provides separate,
optimized modes for stereo music materials and matrix surround motion
picture soundtracks. DTS Neo:6 brings you a more revealing sound from
ordinary stereo and a more expansive home cinema experience.
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 theAURO-Codec
Decoder ($199.00 cost), the AVR-X6300H is capable of decoding the original
Auro-3D mix and playing back an Auro 9.1 or 10.1 channel configuration.
Audyssey Platinum: The AVR-X6300H
features the Audyssey Platinum suite of powerful DSP features - including MultEQ
XT32, Sub EQ HT, LFC (Low Frequency
Containment), Dynamic Volume, and
- MultEQ XT32: Via the supplied measuring microphone,
Audyssey MultEQ32 measures all the speakers in your home theater during

DSP room acoustic correction filters, which together provide smoothest and
most natural tonal balance, regardless of the brand or model of the various
speakers. Audyssey MultEQ32 incorporates Up to eight listening
positions can be measured, configured, and recorded. MultEQ XT32 compensates
for both time and frequency characteristics of the listening area based on
"Audyssey Setup" measurement results. Selection is done from three types of
compensation curves - Reference (default and recommended, L/R Bypass, Flat,
- Sub EQ HT: Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual DSP
tailoring of each subwoofer in a dual subwoofer setup, for deeper bass with
improved definition, compared to a single subwoofer configuration.
- LFC (Low Frequency Containment):Audyssey Low Frequency Containment uses
advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to deliver a full range tonal balance,
including deep bass, but without disturbing close-by neighbors or family
members in other rooms, and features a multi-step adjustment that lets you
dial in the amount of containment to your preference.
- Dynamic Volume: Audyssey Dynamic Volume features
advanced psycho-acoustic processing to deliver clear dialog and wide range
sound at reduced volume levels so that you can enjoy theater-level clarity
at whatever listening level you choose.
- Dynamic EQ: Audyssey Dynamic EQ also features advanced
DSP processing to deliver full range wide-band response, even at reduced
volume levels. Dynamic EQ Reference Level Offset provides three offsets from
the film level reference (5 dB, 10 dB, and 15 dB) that can be selected when
the mix level of the content is not within the standard.
Denon Original Listening Modes: Denon's Original Listening
Modes, combined with Dolby Digital/DTS 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.
Direct Listening Modes: The Denon AVR-X6300H 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.
Audio Enhancements: The Denon AVR-X6300H 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 modes.
- Compressed Audio 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.
- Center Spread: When using the receiver's Dolby Surround
mode, the Center Spread function expands the center channel signal to left
and right front speakers to create a wider frontal audio image for the
listener. It is optimized and designed primary for playback of stereo music

- Dialogue Level & Control: You can adjust the output level
(+/-12dB) to increase the dialogue output from the center channel.
When listening to a DTS:X soundtrack, the Dialog Control feature adjusts the
volume of dialog in movies and vocals in music, so voice can be heard more
- EQ Level: If you choose not to use the Audyssey MultEQ
X32 auto calibration setup function, you can manually set the tonal balance
and level for each frequency band of the receiver's 9-band EQ
(63/125/250/500/1k/2k/4k/8k/16k Hz) for each connected loudspeaker.
- Subwoofer Level: You can set the receiver's subwoofer
output level (+/-12dB) independent from the other speaker levels and
system's main volume.
Volume Settings: The AVR-X6300H offers the following volume
- Volume Scale: You can choose to display an Absolute
volume scale (0-98) or Relative volume scale (-79.5 to 18dB).

channel a speaker cable should be connected to. Since the speaker cables
have labels in the same colors as the connectors on the AVR-X6300H's rear
panel, there's no longer any confusion about which terminals they should be
- 11.2Ch Pre-Outs: The AV receiver features 11.2ch pre-amp
outputs (Front L/R, Center, Surround L/R, Surround Back L/R, Height 1 L/R,
Height 2 L/R, and Dual Subs)
for connection to external power amplifiers. The pre-outs are variable. For compatibility with dual
subwoofer home theater systems, the AVR-X6300H features two discrete
subwoofer outputs. With dual subwoofers, which can be placed in different
parts of the room, you'll benefit from response averaging, which helps
provide smoother and more detailed deep bass, compared to a conventional
single subwoofer speaker system.

color subsampling (@ 60Hz or 50Hz). With 4:4:4 color subsampling, luminance
(brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate; resulting in
an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image
with more colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail. The front-panel
HDMI only supports 4K 60/50Hz using format YCbCr 4:2:0 only.
- HDR (High Dynamic Range): HDR provides enhanced picture quality by simultaneously
enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image. HDR
reproduces a greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels, creating
greater contrast. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the
image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus
- Wide Color Gamut (BT.2020): The BT.2020 color standard
delivers a much wider color gamut and represents about 75% of the total
visual color spectrum, while the current Rec. 709 color standard selected as
the color space for HDTVs and early generation 4K Ultra HDTVs covers only
35% of the total visual color spectrum.
- 21:9 Aspect Ratio: By supporting 21:9 aspect ratio, this receiver
can show films recorded in the Cinema Scope format on your TV for a much
more immersive video experience. When these types of films are viewed in the
usual 16:9 ratio, you see black bars at the top and bottom of the screen;
21:9 eliminates these bars.
