Denon AVR-X4000 AirPlay AV Receiver Review


The Denon AVR-X4000 AV Receiver is more than worthy successor to the AVR-3313CI. We review a lot of receivers, but rarely come across one we like this much. Read on to see why we're such fans.

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

Web Browser control is unrefined

Denon AVR-X4000 review


Denon has high hopes for its 2013 X-series of AV receivers, with the new range boasting an unapologetically modernistic feature set and some welcome refinements, including a reworked user interface, clearer front panel display and hand-holding Setup...

Engaging multichannel delivery; generous connectivity; excellent network streaming and content support; versatile multiroom options

At times, almost too refined; no Bluetooth; ugly remote; not quite as intuitive as Denon would have us believe; only seven channels of amplification

Hands-on: A high-end AV receiver with 9.2 processing and oodles of features

The Denon AVR-X4000 sits just below the top-end AVR-X4520, which offers similar core features but has a much more powerful amplifier core using a monoblock design. As such, though, it’s just over half the price, making it much more accessible for most...

Denon AVR-X4000


A decent amplifier for the price, but needs more subtlety, power and dynamics to truly compete with class leaders

Clear, detailed sound ; Crisp, clean edges ; Fast, agile performance ; Good connectivity and streaming features ; Price

Can sound a bit hard-edged ; Bass could be a little more authoritative ; Treble lacks a little refinement

There’s plenty to sing about with this Denon AV receiver, but we’d like to have heard more power and punch alongside crystal clear edges.

Best receiver I've owned!


This thing has so many features that I just had to have it. Owned it for a month or so now and it is just amazing. the picture quality it sends to my 4k TV is great, the sound is awesome as well, plays loud and clean and not an ounce of distortion....

Great Receiver for our Home Theater


This receiver has many options to hook additional components to. Set up was a little confusing - only because there are so many options to utilize.

Not so good for the price


Its a good receiver for average listener. But you can get a better receiver for almost the same price or even less - for example Marantz 5008/6008.

Outstanding sound and power


Strong power and performance. Multi zone is wonderful.

Great sound for mid-priced receiver


Immediately noticed better surround sound effects, especially gunshots etc - much better than our 10-year old yamaha receiver.. Pretty easy to switch from Sat to DVD player & back again.

Best unit for the $$


I have been a Denon user for a number of years. I upgraded to this unit recently and I must say it was the greatest investment I have made as far as a mid to high level tuner. The features are so numerous that the manual comes on a disk rather than a...
