The Denon AVR-S770H offers 75 watts per channel.


Denon on Tuesday unveiled two new AV receivers for smaller rooms that offer networked audio and support for 8K video.

The Denon AVR-S770H is a 7.2-channel receiver with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support, while the AVR-S670H includes 5.2 channels and Dolby TrueHD support.

Both receivers offer 75 watts per channel (8 ohm, stereo), and include six HDMI ports -- three of which support 8K HDMI video capability and the gaming-friendly 4K resolution at 120Hz refresh rate. They also include the company's own HEOS multiroom audio and Audyssey MultEQ calibration.

The new Denon models follow up on the AVR-S970H, which was released in late 2022. Denon has been one of the most consistent AV manufacturers with a new model almost every year, while competitors like Sony and Onkyo slowed down or even stopped during the pandemic.

The Denon AVR-S770H ($649, £699) and AVR-S670H ($549, £549) are available for preorder now and will go on sale in the coming weeks.
