Dolby’s revolutionary Dolby Atmos technology dispenses with the channel-based surround sound coding used for decades, in favor of advanced object-based coding, giving the sound designer the ability to place sounds precisely anywhere in the three-dimensional soundspace. Now you can enjoy this award-winning technology at home with the Denon AVR-X4300H, which features the ability to connect a 7.1 surround sound speaker system and 2 additional overhead speakers or Dolby Atmos-certified elevation speakers, or a 5.1 surround speaker system and 4 additional overhead or Dolby Atmos elevation speakers, for the ultimate home theater experience.
The latest immersive surround sound system, DTS:X features similar object-based audio coding, and provides for overhead speakers to deliver a stunning surround sound experience. Even without Dolby Atmos or DTS:X encoded content, the Denon AVR-X4300H supports both Dolby Surround and Neural:X upmixing technologies: users with a ‘3D’ sound speaker set-up are able to get an enhanced surround experience from conventional Dolby – or DTS-encoded content, or even music in stereo, using the full set of speakers installed in the listening room.
By fully immersing the listener in a cocoon of life-like sound, Auro-3D puts you right in the middle of the action. Auro-3D provides an immersive surround sound experience thanks to dedicated height and overhead channels, in addition to the regular channels. The height information, captured in recording or created during the mixing process, is mixed into a standard 5.1 PCM stream that comes with a regular Blu-ray. Moreover, the Auro-3D Engine combines different technologies to guarantee an optimum 3D sound experience generated both natively and from existing audio content. It recognizes mono, stereo, 5.1 surround or an Auro-encoded signal and transforms them into 3D audio. Once upgraded with the Auro-Codec decoder, the Denon AVR-X4300H is capable of decoding the original Auro-3D mix and playing back an Auro-3D 9.1 or 10.1 channel configuration (with external amplifier). Auro-3D Upgrade can be purchased for $199.
Latest HDMI 2.0a Connectivity; HDCP 2.2 Compatible; ISF-Certified
Prepared for the future, with no fewer than eight HDMI inputs (including one conveniently located on the front panel) and three HDMI outputs, the Denon AVR-X4300H’s advanced video section features the latest HDMI specifications, including 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 21:9 video, 3D, and BT.2020 pass-through support on every input. It also features HDCP 2.2 compatibility, a requirement for 4K Ultra HD copy-protected content, ensuring ready for the next generation of Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes and other 4K Ultra HD sources. In addition, the video processor can also upscale analog and digital SD and HD video to 4K Ultra HD.
Certified by the Imaging Science Foundation, the Denon AVR-X4300H features a full suite of video calibration controls (for use by an ISF technician), along with ISF Day and ISF Night video modes.
Denon Link HD, AL24 Processing Plus
The exclusive Denon Link HD system, available when the Denon AVR-X4300H is used with a compatible Denon Blu-ray player, creates a high-accuracy digital link, with a dedicated connection for master clock data to eliminate distortion caused by jitter errors in the main audio datastream. Meanwhile AL24 Processing Plus – another exclusive Denon technology – provides ultra-high-resolution digital audio filtering and precision in the main (L/R) audio channels, to deliver music with outstanding high-frequency detail along with a smooth, natural midrange, creating a natural soundstage with enhanced imaging.
In order to properly handle the multitude of advanced digital audio decoding and processing functions, the Denon AVR-X4300H features a sophisticated DSP audio processing system that incorporates no less than 4 powerful high speed fourth generation SHARC DSP processors, which together have a combined continuous processing capability of 10 GFLOPS (10 billion floating point numerical computations per second).
Built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and AirPlay 2 Capability
Featuring Bluetooth and Wi-Fi wireless streaming connectivity, the Denon AVR-X4300H is equipped with an advanced dual antenna system for robust and error-free streaming even in congested urban environments. Connected to the Internet through your home Wi-Fi network (or with a hard-wired connection via the RJ-45 Ethernet LAN port), it allows you to enjoy your favorite tracks from streaming music services such as Spotify Connect. You can also choose from thousands of Internet radio stations from around the world, and enjoy music and speech entertainment of virtually every genre.
AirPlay 2 lets you play your favorite tracks wirelessly from your iPod touch, iPhone or iPad, and via network streaming you can listen to music files stored on your home PC or Mac, or NAS devices.
Powerful 9 Channel Discrete Amplifier with ECO Mode
The Denon AVR-X4300H features a sophisticated power amplifier section with all 9 channels configured identically, employing discrete high current capable power transistors. Each channel is rated at 125 watts (8 ohms, 20Hz~20kHz, 0.05%THD) and all channels are able to safely drive lower impedance speakers (down to 4 ohms). Denon’s intelligent ECO mode adjusts power consumption according to signal level, and there’s an on-screen Eco Mode display that lets you see in real time how much energy ECO mode is saving. Most remarkably, the 9 channel amplification allows for setting up a 7.1.2 or 5.1.4 3D experience without the need of an external amplifier. By the use of an external amplifier the setup can get extended to 7.1.4 as the AVR-X4300H features 11.2channel processing. If not in use for 3D audio the integrated amplifiers can get assigned to drive another pair of speakers in a second audio zone running a different source than the main room.
Dual Subwoofer Outputs
A single subwoofer can give an uneven bass response at the main listening position, with audible peaks and dips. The Denon AVR-X4300H provides for two subwoofers: positioned in different locations, they will even out the low frequencies, for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area. It also provides Audyssey Sub EQ HT to give individual tailoring of each subwoofer via digital signal processing.
High Resolution Audio
Discover the incredible fidelity of high resolution audio tracks with the Denon AVR-X4300H’s ability to decode up to 24-bit/192-kHz lossless files (FLAC and WAV; ALAC/Apple Lossless to 24-bit/96kHz), as well as DSD 2.8MHz (the audiophile format of SACD) and now 5.6MHz tracks, too. Play them from memory devices via the front panel USB, or from network sources – the Denon AVR-X4300H will also play lossy file types such as MP3 and WMA.
Denon 2016 AVR Remote
With the free “Denon 2016 AVR Remote” for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire, available from the Apple app store, Google Play or the Amazon app store, you can control the receiver’s operation, as well as accessing its set-up menu, from a smartphone or tablet.

Inside the app, you can switch instantly to the HEOS App to access an incredible level of control over your music contents and streaming services, blast full HEOS wireless multi-room control.
Most Advanced Audyssey Room Correction Suite
Equipped with the full Audyssey Platinum suite of advanced DSP algorithms, the Denon AVR-X4300H features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction. With the supplied measurement microphone, MultEQ XT32 analyzes each speaker’s output (including the subwoofers) at up to 8 measurement locations and generates precision digital filters that optimize each channel for the correct frequency and time domain response.
Audyssey Dynamic Volume smoothes out annoying jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower levels and still enjoy clear dialog, music and sound effects. Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides precision tonal tailoring for full range clarity at any listening level. 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.
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.
