Denon 110th Anniversary AVC-A110 A/V Amplifier Unboxing Video
Celebrating 110 years in the business, Denon has released its flagship AVC-A110 A/V amplifier and a sample has landed in our hands. Read on for our unboxing video.
Not only has the AVC-A110 been meticulously tuned by Denon Sound Masters, it's supplied with a special certificate to mark the prestige of this release. It also sports an exclusive silver-graphite colourway and 110 Anniversary logos. Furthermore, Denon's 110 Anniversary products are manufactured exclusively at the Denon factory in Shirakawa, Japan and undergo an extended quality assurance process before delivery.
The flagship AVC-A110 13.2-channel 8K AV amplifier boasts all the popular 3D formats such as Dolby Atmos, DTS :X, DTS :X Pro, IMAX Enhanced, Auro-3D, as well as 8K/60Hz pass-through or upscaling, 4K/120Hz pass-through for gaming and support for the latest HDMI specifications.
The AV amplifier is wrapped in a limited-edition silver-graphite finish with aluminium front and side panels, custom die-cast feet and a copper transformer plate for superior isolation.
The AVC-A110 features the latest HDMI connectivity (8-in/3-out) including a dedicated 8K input (HDCP 2.3) along with the latest dynamic HDR standard that promises brighter highlights and deeper black levels. Additionally, the eARC HDMI feature (through the main HDMI output) enables uncompressed and object-based audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS :X to connect directly from a smart TV app to the amp for lifelike audio performance.
Gamers are also said to benefit from the AVC-A110's Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and Quick Frame Transport (QFT), minimising lag and latency while eliminating frame tearing for more fluid and enhanced gaming.
The AVC-A110's hefty 8.2kg high current power transformer and custom 22,000uF/80V audio capacitors deliver 100 watts per channel wih 7 channels driven.
Finally, networked audio is supported through the HEOS built-in wireless multi-room music streaming tech. Here you get Apple AirPlay 2 as well as access to the most popular music services such as Spotify, Amazon Music HD, TIDAL, Deezer and more. Also, you can enjoy hands-free control of the AVC-A110 thanks to compatibility with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple Siri voice command engines.
The Denon AVC-A110 is available now and sells for $11,400 RRP in Australia. As mentioned, our review sample is currently being put through its paces so stay tuned. In the meantime, here's what you can expect to see if you're lucky enough to order one for yourself.
