Denon AVR-X4000

AVForums
11 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Denon's goal has been to take the intimidation factor out of AV receivers and with the AVR-X4000 they are certainly on the right track. It might not be able to completely shake the classic receiver look but the lack of controls on the front makes for cleaner lines and a simpler design. The brushed metal finish is very attractive and the build quality is excellent, with a very solid chassis that comes in a choice of black or silver.
  • Pros: Detailed and lively sound, Plenty of bass, Easy to setup, Attractive design, Good connectivity, Price
  • Cons: Can sound a bit clinical, Bass could be better integrated

Denon AVR-X4000 AirPlay AV Receiver Review

Audioholics

  • Conclusion: If you read the entirety of this Denon AVR-X4000 receiver review, I bet you could guess what my conclusion will be. This thing rocks! It can do everything I would expect of a $1299 receiver, but doesn’t go too feature happy that it abandons sound quality. In my mind, the AVR-X4000 is definitely worth the extra $300 over the AVR-X3000. With the AVR-X3000 you lose Audyssey MulEQ XT32 & SubEQ HT, zone 3, speaker pre-outs, and are limited to a 7.2 system.
  • Pros: Listen to network audio and HDMI video simultaneously, HDMI audio for Zone 2 (And Zone 3 if All Zone Stereo is Used), Audyssey MulEQ XT32 & SubEQ HT, Easy to setup and configure
  • Cons: Web Browser control is unrefined

Home Cinema Choice

  • Summary: Can this next-generation mid-range AV receiver uphold Denon's legendary legacy?
  • Pros: Engaging multichannel delivery; generous connectivity; excellent network streaming and content support; versatile multiroom options
  • Cons: At times, almost too refined; no Bluetooth; ugly remote; not quite as intuitive as Denon would have us believe; only seven channels of amplification

  • Conclusion: Macht es Sinn, für einen guten Mittelklasse-Receiver wie den Denon AVR-X4000 den vergleichsweise teuren High-End-Blu-ray-Player DBT-3313UD zu kaufen? Ja, dank Denon Link HD ist das eine gute Investition, obwohl der HDMI-Eingang des Denon AVR-X4000 bereits mit anderen Playern sehr gut klingt. Aber mit der Extra-Taktleitung lebt der Klang erst richtig auf und wird wirklich zum Genuss. Aber auch für sich betrachtet, verdienen beide Komponenten eine Empfehlung.

30 July 2013
  • Conclusion: Der neue Denon AVR-X4000 klingt so gut wie er aussieht. Er glänzt durch Präzision, Dynamik, Auflösung und Emotionalität . Das Metall- Feeling von Frontplatte und Drehknöpfen tut ein übriges, um Begehrlichkeiten zu wecken. Und toll zu bedienen ist das neue XModell auch noch. In der Summe ergibt das ein Ausnahmepaket.
  • Pros: Neutral, knackig, dynamisch, laststabil: ein Traum- Receiver, dessen Bedienung nicht zum Alptraum gerät.
  • Cons: Schwergängige USB-Buchse, Quellenwahlknopf rastet nicht definiert ein.
