You'd think Denon wouldn't need any more AV receivers in its already comprehensive product range, but this beastie will be making its way to the UK in late August.

The AVR-4308 is the company's first receiver with a built-in DAB tuner, and it can handle the latest surround sound formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD via its HDMI 1.3a connections.

It delivers 170W across all seven channels, has a Faroudja chip to upscale video to 1080p and is fully wi-fi enabled (hence the small aerial on the back).

Other highlights include twin remote controls (for controlling separate zones), auto set-up, audio streaming from a PC and 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analogue converters for all channels.

Available in silver and black, it will retail for around £2000.
