    We recently had the pleasure of attending the 2015 Denon & Marantz Dealer conference in Monte Carlo where we had our first glimpse of the new 2015 Denon AVR range. The new models AVRX2200, AVRX3200, AVRX4200 and AVRX6200 all feature Dolby Atmos, DTS-X and HDCP 2.2 compatibility.

    Denon AVRX2200W - £499 due July 2015

    Denon AVRX3200W - £749 due August 2015

    Denon AVRX4200W - £1099 due September 2015

    Thanks Andrew. No word on the pricing or availabity of the 6200 it seems?

    Be interesting to see how it is priced in relation to the current 7200.

    It's going to be the replacement for the AVRX5200 and will be £1799 available October 2015 - they didn't have it on display so my trusty iPhone couldn't take any pictures!

    AVRX7200 is a bargain at the moment and I'd grab one while you can as the AVRX7200WA will be more.

    Nice to see that Denon are including DTS:X on the AVRX2200 and that Onkyo aren't the only option for those with a limited budget who want DTS:X. Even the AVRX1200 is to get Atmos.

    The manuals for these receivers popped up briefly on Denon's US site, but have since been pulled.

    I note that D&M have confirmed that all their new HDMI version 2.0 receivers will be HDMI version 2.0a updatable.

    This seems to be a good time to buy for sure.

    Reading the link for the 4200, it says that it has pre outs; I wonder how many channels as I could live with using one as a processor for the main 5 channels/one ceiling pair and then use the internal amp for the remaining 2 ceiling channels? I have a miniDSP '88 so I want to eq 7.1 channels (which means using pre outs for those channels), I don't care about the built in XT32 and I'd leave the remaining 2 ceiling channels without eq in a 5.1.4 set up.

    Which one out of these would suit a 5.2.4 set up with 60hz out put? If that is the correct terminology?!

    Of the models listed in the first post, only the AVRX4200 would be able to give you 5.1.4. The models below this are 7 channel receivers and can only therefore give you 5.1.2 max. The 4200 is a 9 channel receiver.

    Thanks for the reply. And you know whether it gives a 30hz or 60hz output?

    It should give you 60Hz in relation to natively encoded 60Hz encoded UHD video content. Is this what you mean?

    @quantumAV What about the AVRX1200W? Will you be retailing this and for how much?

    This model too will include both Atmos and DTS:X, but I'm assuming no neural X upmixing and just the ability to decode and handle natively encoded content?

    It is obviously going to be cheaper than the AVRX2200W so could potentially be the cheapest Atmos and DTS:X capable receiver on the market when released?

    Wifi, Bluetooth, airplay, 4k, 6in 1out, hdcp 2.2, Atmos and DTS-X.

    I didn't note down the price though. I recall why I didn't note down any details now - someone has an exclusive on it so it won't be available to the rest of the dealer base.

    I took a photo of it so I will try and upload it tomorrow

    If you look at rapid cost reductions about 6 months after release - I'm not sure thats right :) unless you are absolutely desperate for an upgrade

    same with all manufacturers though (except maybe Arcam and Anthem)

    I mean look at current 5200 and Marantz 7009 prices vs release price

    its same every year

    I meant in the context of catching the latest models with all the immersive sound formats on board. Sure, prices will drop midway through the cycle. But then we all have to balance the get it now and enjoy factor vs wait till later and save a few quid. That's individual choice, yep.

    On top of that if you're on an older amp that can't do the three new formats it's worth getting rid whilst there is still a good market for them. I won't use any of the new formats on my new amp for probably nearly a year but by that time I wouldn't be able to get much for the Anthem 710 I just sold for a decent price.

    That's why I sold an Onkyo 818 a while back and bought a dirt cheap Arcam AV8 as a stop gap. Funny that I felt that my sound quality has improved, so I can last longer before I cave in and buy something new. At least it means I'm not in a rush to buy, so can take my time choosing and seeing if there are any teething troubles with new models (wrt to HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 as well as sound formats).

    yeah - going stop-gap always dangerous

    about 6 years ago I went from a HDMI capable av amp to a Pioneer AX10Ai as a temp solution

    It has survived 3 "upgrade attempts" (bought - sold as nowhere near as good) since :)

    You're right, we have quoted the processing of 9.2 in the channel count spec in error. 7 channels would be the norm for the 4000 range allowing for the differentiation with the marantz SR7010 which has 9 channels

    Will either the 2200 or 3200 allow you to bi-amp the fronts and use Atmos?
