Denon AVC-X8500H with HDMI 2.1 and 8K support presented

Denon has introduced the AVC-X8500H Premium AV Amplifier with HDMI 2.1, 8K and 10K support. The new features are only available after a firmware update in 2018.

Sound United invited media representatives to Sanya (China) on October 18, 2017 to present their latest developments in audio & video processing. The absolute highlight was certainly the announcement of the AVC-X8500H. Denon opens a new Ultra Premium segment and now offers an option to even the most demanding home theater enthusiast. Denon himself promises an update to HDMI 2.1 with 8K and 10K in 2018 for the new Premium AV amplifier AVC-X8500H . All the advantages of HDMI 2.1 with eARC,processing of dynamic metadata and dynamic adjustment of the frame rate (for gaming)should be available with it. Since the new HDMI standard is not yet officially adopted, the new interface may not yet be advertised for new products.

HDMI 2.1 update in 2018
On delivery of the AVC-X8500H, this 4K supports 50 / 60Hz signals with full 4: 4: 4 color subsampling via the 8 HDMI inputs and 3 HDMI outputs (all with HDCP 2.2). All relevant HDR formats including HDR10, HLG (Hybrid-Log Gamma) and Dolby Visionare supported. With the HDMI 2.1 update is also the use of the new HDR10 + possible.

In addition to the current HDMI version, impressed especially the audio section of the AVC-X8500H. Dolby Atmos, DTS: X and Auro-3D can be used in a 13.2-channel environment. Seven 2-channel digital audio converters with 32-bit and 768 kHz are available. A total of 15 speaker connections (+2 subwoofers) are available. 3D sound formats can be used in a 7.1.6 or 9.1.4 configuration. With Auro-3D the full 13.1 configuration can be used.

Integrated HEOS multiroom streaming

We were also able to use the preliminary information to locate the MultEQ Audyssey XT32 surround sound calibration, integrated WLAN (2.4 GHz / 5 GHz) , Ethernet ports, USB ports, Apple Airplay, and ISF certification . In addition, the model has a 4K / 60p video upscaler and integrated HEOS multiroom music streaming . The nominal power per channel is given as 150 watts. The presentation still speaks of 210 watts. However, it is likely to be the maximum performance in a smaller surround setup.

The AVC-X8500H is an AV amplifier and not an AV receiver whose model name usually starts with AVR at Denon. The only difference between the two variants is the missing FM radio. Otherwise, the AVC-X8500H continues to be able to process and forward current and future sound and image formats. Anyone who worries about the missing radio feature now can be reassured. Thousands of channels are available via internet radio.

AVC-X8500H Price & Availability

Additional information about the AVC-X8500H is expected in the coming weeks. The model will come in the spring of 2018 for around 3,000 to 3,500 euros in the trade. As usual, the AV amplifier is available in silver and black. Whether the model will appear exactly in this configuration in Europe, is not yet known, but dealers already give the go-ahead for the AVC-X8500H.

Marantz AV8805 with 13.2 channel signal processing and Auro 3D presented (CES 2018)



Marantz is using the CES 2018 Las Vegas framework to showcase their new AV8805 high-end AV preamps. The AV8805 supports 13.2 channel signal processing and is equipped for any multi-channel audio format - even for Auro 3D. The AV8805 will be available from February 2018 at an MSRP of € 3,999.00 from authorized retailers.

Marantz wants to offer with its new multi-channel receiver uncompromising processing of audio and image data. The device is specially designed for use with high quality external speakers. At a price point of 3.999, - EUR, it would be a sin to attach a cheap speaker package for 300, - €. In the black chassis, AK4490 slumber 32-bit D / A converter units on all channels for high-quality audio processing. Also, 3D formats such as Dolby Atmos, DTS: X and even Auro 3D (via firmware update in spring 2018) benefited from the D / A converter units. The Marantz AV8805 allows a maximum of 7.1.6 or 9.1.4 sound setups or full 13.1 Auro 3D sound.

For high-end performance, there are 15.2 channel XLR preamp outputs that provide external powered speakers with the best sound quality. Before audio signals are routed through the XLR outputs, they are processed via Marantz HDAM modules and, for example, adapted to high noise levels.

4K / 60p videos with HDR & Dolby Vision

The video section of the AV8805 supports all current and relevant standards. HDCP 2.2 protected 4K signals can be played back via the High Dynamic Range (HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision) HDMI inputs and outputs and up to 60 frames per second - all at full 4: 4: 4 color resolution in the BT.2020 color space. Since we are in the ultra-high-end range, an ISF video calibration may not be missing.

In total, the user has 8 HDMI inputs (one on the front) and three HDMI outputs. For conventional SD / HD video sources, a 4K upscaler is also available. With a future update, it is even possible to deliver audio signals via an HDMI connection via eARC (enhanced audio return channel) to the receiver.

Stream happily wirelessly

The AV preamplifier AV8805 must not only show its best side in films and series. Even the daily enjoyment of music should be best satisfied by the flagship amplifier. Of course, the user can play his music sources directly through the countless connection options of the AV8805, or you can use Bluetooth and AirPlay to wirelessly transfer music. Music streaming apps such as Spotify Connect, Amazon Music, Tidal, Deezer, etc. but also Internet radio are a must in this price range.

HDMI 2.1 via update?

Who puts an AV preamplifier for a mere 3.999, - EUR in the house, of course, does not want that the device in 1-2 years is already outdated. Marantz therefore promises an "upgradable product design" to integrate future technologies via optional hardware and / or software upgrades. Sounds almost as if you have already made provision for the HDMI 2.1 interface.

Price & Availability

"Black is beautiful" - at least in this price segment. The AV8805 is so far only in a black version. Whether a silver model is refilled is not known. Anyone who has saved his Christmas bonus from grandma, who already in February 2018 from 3.999, - EUR (EIA) strike!

Το θεωρώ πολύ δύσκολο στην υλοποίηση του, ειδικά με τα συνήθη εργαλεία EQ που έχουν οι AVR.
