Denon has announced the two new AV Receivers – AVR-X1400H and AVR-X2400H. The “H” letter indicates the support for built-in HEOS technology allows you to stream your favorite music wirelessly around your home to any HEOS speaker, and Denon multi-room support.
Both models can handle up to 7.2 channels: Denon AVR-X1400H delivers 80W per channel (8 ohms, 20 Hz – 20 kHz, 0.08% 2 channels drive) while AVR-X2400H has a power of 95W for each (8 ohms, 20 Hz – 20 kHz, 0:08% 2 channels drive).

Connectivity includes Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. They also support DLNA and AirPlay.
Both also support a Local Area Network and USB so you can play various audio files such as MP3, WMA, FLAC, AAC, WAV, AIFF and DSD up to 5,6MHz.
