Audio quality is at least as important as the picture.
The Denon AVR-X3800H is a 9.4-channel AV receiver (AVR) that is a worthy contender for the centerpiece of any modern home theater audio setup. Vinyl fans will appreciate the X3800H's dedicated phono input. 3D audio support includes Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and IMAX Enhanced. The X3800H's built-in Bluetooth delivers sound to a wireless pair of headphones simultaneously with the AVR's speaker output - ideal for anyone in the room who desires a bit of amplified assistance. The X3800H also has integrated speaker pre-outs for expanding the listening experience to 11-channels. Also, its independent outputs for quad subs always make us smile. Equipped with the latest HDMI specs, the X3800H is compatible with 8K/60Hz and 4K/120Hz video passthrough as well as gaming-specific features, including variable refresh rate (VRR) and automatic low latency mode (ALLM.) HDR format support is complete, including Dolby Vision, HDR10+, and HLG. We appreciate the X3800H's Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room calibration technology and an upgrade path for Dirac Live - an extra calibration preset simplifies listening comparisons. The Denon AVR-X3800H is compatible with popular AI assistants, streaming sources, and various lossless file types, including high-resolution.
