Title: 2018 Denon "X" series AVRs (X1500H, X2500H, X3500H, X4500H, X6500H)
Post by: AVSjd on June 21, 2018, 01:17:46 PM
D+M has started to release the new 2018 Denon models beginning with the "S" series and lower level "X" series models.  We now have the X1500H and X2500H in stock and available for purchase.  The X3500H should be available in July with the X4500H available late August and the X6500H available in September.

What's new or to be added via firmware update for the 2018 models?

S540BT
- Bluetooth Version 3.0
- Able to display menu on 4k video (except Dolby Vision)
-RESET - Menu setting that restores all settings to factory default (in addition to usual 2 button + power on reset)

S640H/S740H/X1500H/X2500H/X3500H
- Able to display menu on 4k video (except Dolby Vision)
- Introduction of the S640H as another 5CH model but with speaker posts and Audyssey
- RESET - Menu setting that restores all settings to factory default (in addition to usual 2 button + power on reset)
- PHONO input (also added as audio input available with <Video Select> feature)
- Airplay 2- S740H and higher models via future firmware update
- Panel Lock (either all front panel buttons or all but volume)
- Remote Lock
- Web Control (reintroduced after being previously dropped on all "H" series models)
- <Dialog Level> setting more appropriately relabeled as <Center Level> as it simply adjusts the volume of the center speaker
- <Center Level> (formerly Dialog Level Adjust) and <Subwoofer Level> (formerly Subwoofer Level Adjust) no longer have an ON/OFF setting, but rather simply mirror the Center/Subwoofer Manual Setup - Levels - Test Tones settings such that they can be adjusted on the fly now correctly as opposed to being in addition to the Manual Setup settings on previous year's models
- Surround Parameter - Panorama (S640H only) - expands front sound field towards the back when using Dolby PLII (Music)
- Detachable WiFi/Bluetooth antennas (new for S940H, X2500H, X3500H)
- “ihiji Invision” and Domotz Pro remote system management technology ("X" series)
- eARC (ie. enhanced ARC - able to play HD audio (ie. Dolby TrueHD/DTS HD-MA) from an eARC capable TV; only on X3500H/X4500H/X6500H - firmware update) 
           Note: Atmos over DD+ is not HD audio so therefore does not require eARC and can pass over the standard ARC connection

After waiting over a year for Auro Technologies to get their Auro 3D Version 2 Demo disc back in stock, they just notified us a few days ago that we are now able to make a large bulk purchase of these discs.   It may take a month to actually receive our order but as a thank you to our customers who have purchased a 2017 or 2018 Denon/Marantz AVR/pre-pro that features Auro 3D (mid/upper models), we would like to ship you one of these discs for a small shipping and handling charge.  Please call your salesperson for details or you can reach me at (585) 645-1006.

We still have a few of the Auro 3D Version 2 Demo discs available for anyone that is interested in receiving one for a small shipping and handling fee. 

We also have a few Denon X1500H, X2500H, and X3500h models that are currently available on clearance.

Note the X4500H and X6500H models will not be replaced this year, but rather will continue thru into 2020.  Anyone purchasing an X4500H or X6500H from us will receive the Auro 3D Version 2 Demo Disc FREE as part of your purchase.

We still have one Denon X1500H available at low low clearance pricing.  Call if interested.

Also, we still have a few Auro 3D Version 2 Demo discs available, so the purchase of either a X4500H or X6500H also comes with a free Auro 3D Version 2 Demo disc (while still available).
