Features

The Denon AVR-X2600H AV receiver is a further development of the younger model and has increased output power and advanced connectivity. At the same time, the main feature of the AV receiver remains the same - it is high-quality sound and a full range of modern functions for more than a reasonable cost. Denon AVR-X2600H has a configuration of 7.2, while the amplifiers of all its channels are made on discrete elements and develop a high output current. Thanks to the presence of digital high-current power amplifiers on all channels, the AVR-X2600H provides high performance at 95 watts per channel (8 ohms).

Design and build

The novelty has an identical chassis design and power supply, made on a rather large W-shaped transformer, in the buffer there are the same capacities (Nichicon 12000 μF / 71 V), the proven 32-bit quad-core DSP Cirrus Logic is used as the “brain”, and the amplifiers output sections have the same vertical layout and are made on the same transistors as in Denon models of a higher class.

Connectivity

Denon's HDMI ports (eight inputs, including one on the front panel and two outputs) are not fully 2.1 certified, but they support some features of this specification. For Atmos fans, especially those who have their TV’s embedded streaming applications as their primary source of content, AVR-X2600H’s built-in support for Advanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) support. It allows the amplifier to receive uncompressed audio codecs (such as DTS: X, Dolby Atmos, or TrueHD) from the TV via the same HDMI cable through which it sends video.

Setup

You will need to set up a Denon HEOS account to take advantage of the platform, and immediately after installation we advise you to spend half an hour setting up the amplifier correctly. Denon's Virtual Setup Assistant guides you through all sections, from cable connections to network setup and speaker calibration, the latter using Audyssey's detailed and intuitive software.

Pros and Cons

Pros
