Denon Announces AVR-X6200W Network A/V Receiver

Posted on Wednesday, September 30th, 2015 and updated on Thursday, July 21st, 2016 4:30 PM


Denon has announced the specifications for the AVR-X6200W A/V receiver, which will be available to the public in October 2015 at authorized retailers for $2,199.

The AVR-X6200W replaces the AVR-X5200W, which was announced in July 2014, and started shipping on September 8, 2014. Unlike that model, the AVR-X6200W will support the DTS:X™ immersive sound format via a future update to the model's firmware. Other improvements over the previous model include HDCP 2.2 for 4K video and HDR support (which will be present on future 4K video material, including the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format).

This model falls between the $1,499 AVR-X4200W, which was announced in July. and their flagship AVR-X7200W, which retails for $2,999. That model was introduced in November 2014 and isn't due to be replaced until late 2016. Compared to the AVR-X4200W, this model has more channels, more power, and a few other minor differences that may or may not matter to each person. Whereas the smaller sibling can do 5.1.4 or 7.1.2, this model can go up to 7.1.4 or 9.1.2 (both require an additional two-channel amplifier to reach their max capability).
