Denon AVC-AH1 and AVC-X4800H High-Spec AV Amps Now Available
Denon's AVC-A1H and AVC-X4800H AV amplifiers are now available in the UK and Europe.
Denon's new flagship AVC-A1H amplifier and the more affordable AVC-X4800H were announced in September, and the company has seen fit to unleash them as ISE 2023 is in full swing in Barcelona.
Both AV amplifiers offer increased HDMI 2.1 connectivity alongside 8K video support, including 8K upscaling from 4K content. Additionally, they play nice with Sony 360 Reality Audio as well as the expected 3D surround sound formats, including Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, IMAX Enhanced, and Auro 3D. You can also stream music via the in-built HEOS system.
The AVC-A1H (above) replaces Denon's AVC-A110 110th Anniversary Edition AV Amplifier as the company's crowning glory. Here you get 210W to each of the fifteen channels of onboard amplification, seventeen speaker terminals and four independent subwoofer outputs, with enough grunt to power a 9.4.6 system.
In addition, four of the balanced XLR outputs are assignable, and its ten HDMI ports (seven inputs, three outputs) support HDMI 2.1 and 8K video at 60fps.
Joining the roll-call is Denon's largest ever power transformer, itself weighing 11.5kg, which sits in the AVC-A1H's high-rigidity construction casement that, all together, tips the scales at a theft-deterrent 32 kilograms.
Finally, you can pay to upgrade to Dirac Live via a future software update should the Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room correction software not be enough for you.
Meanwhile, the AVC-X4800H offers 200W of power per channel to nine channels of amplification and, like the AVC-A1H, can handle up to four subwoofers.
That adds up to the AVC-X47800H being capable of driving a 5.4.4 system complete with Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, IMAX Enhanced, Auro 3D and Sony 360 Reality Audio support.
It matches its more expensive stablemate with the same complement of ten HDMI 2.1 sockets, supporting 8K video and gaming features such as VRR, ALLM and QFT.
The AVC-X4800H will also support Dirac Live upgradability when the software update lands.
Both Denon AV amplifiers are available now, with the AVC-A1H priced at £5,999 and the AVC-X4800H costing £2,199.
