Denon AVR-X1400H review

The Denon AVR-X1400H has a six-input HDMI switch that can stream video up to 4K. The control system has a simplified configuration interface, and a quad-core 32-bit processor with all active decoders capable of working with wireless connections (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi) is running in the digital path. Audyssey MultiEQ XT is responsible for configuring the entire system. Also, a convenient multi-room HEOS protocol with control through an application for smartphones has been introduced into the device.
