Denon AVC-X8500H review
Can Denon's flagship AV amplifier justify its premium price tag?
After a false start, this Denon proves every bit as able as its talented siblings.
Does Denon's multi-room music system have what it takes to challenge the likes of Sonos and Bluesound?
Excellent comfort and a smooth, refined sound will keep you listening for hours...
The brilliant Denon AVR-X3300W will take any mid-range home cinema system to the next level...
No revolutionary changes from its predecessor, just an all-round superb AV amp...
The feature-packed Denon is a fine shout for those looking to dabble in the world of music streaming...
Product of the Year, Awards 2016. Denon has done it again - the D-M40DAB is a seriously impressive micro system for the money...
Product of the Year, Awards 2015. You’ll be tempted by Denon’s articulate and future-proof Dolby Atmos amp
The Denon kicks out a seriously weighty and powerful sound, but its unruly bass performance spoils the show
The AVR-X2000 brings Denon back to the AV receiver top table in this ultra-competitive price category
Stacks of connectivity in a compact system makes this an attractive option, but it falls just short of the best sound quality available
It’s lovely to use, but the Denon’s unremarkable sound failed to ignite our interest
A decent amplifier for the price, but needs more subtlety, power and dynamics to truly compete with class leaders
A great-sounding pair of headphones that’s all about comfort – well worth a listen
Best wireless speaker £150-£300, Awards 2013. Out of this Cocoon has emerged a great wireless speaker – it’s up there with the best at this price
If you want to ditch those discs, Denon has you covered with this streaming micro system
Best music system up to £400, Awards 2014. A stunning sounding system, that makes up for its lack of features in pure sonic ability
Built-in wi-fi, AirPlay support and an integrated iPod dock – but no DAB tuner
Best Blu-ray player £300+, Awards 2011. The Denon DBP-2012UD Blu-ray player is a stunner to take on all comers
AirPlay-enabled multichannel receiver delivers a weighty, detailed sound, but competition is tough, despite a £50 price cut
There's much to admire in Denon's AVR-4311 amplifier, including great functionality, but it lacks the balance of the best
Denon's accomplished AVR-1911 picks up where the award-winning AVR-1910 left off, but the competition is too fierce for that final star
Quite simply the most enjoyable Denon amplifier we've heard in ages - the PMA-710 is a solidly accomplished performer
Denon's AH-C710 in-ears offer a punchy and powerful sound with a sweet midrange and lashings of detail, but lack finesse
This Denon amp has a sound to match its gorgeously imposing bulk, but it's no all-rounder
With its formidable spec this Denon is well worth a look – but it can't quite match the standards of the class-leaders
Once again Denon has produced a thoroughly solid and dependable piece of AV kit, but we think there's better out there for the money
Denon's latest CD player adopts similar styling to its recent Blu-ray range. It's a good listen, but holds back when it should let rip
There's no doubt that the Denon is a highly capable machine. It's just that some rivals offer better value
If you're working to a sub-£1000 budget, then you can't do better than look at this impressive arrival in the Denon AV stable
The '3310 makes a fine purchase, but it's not quite good enough to trouble the class leaders
With the AVR-1910, Denon has produced a worthy and immaculate all-rounder that's faultless at this price
These are good noise cancelling headphones, but sound quality could be a lot better for the money
Denon's mid-price AVR-2309 multichannel receiver is entering a cut-throat section of the market. Can it compete with established rivals?
We were impressed with the Denon DVD-3800BD Blu-ray player when it was first tested and it is still a good option. It just suffers against the new dec
Regular visitors to our Forums have been clamouring for a review of Denon's £800 AVR-2809 multichannel receiver, so read our verdict exclusively onlin
The Denon DVD-2500BT is a great way to watch Blu-ray discs and DVDs – a great home entertainer
Good as it is, when compared with the best the Denon doesn’t display the same level of clarity with Blu-ray or DVD soundtracks and lacks the agility a
The extra outlay for the iPod dock seems fair to us, while everything else about this system remains top drawer
A great receiver in many ways and, if you can afford one, well worth your consideration
The build is as reliable as ever. The sound however falls way below the usually high standard we have come to expect from Denon
This is an amp we so wanted to like, but it’s consistently out-pointed by rivals
Uncovers a good level of detail thanks to its clear and relatively uncompressed delivery
