Denon has released details of three new models from its 2014 X Series range of AV receivers.

The AVR-X1000 from last year remains unchanged as the entry level model in the range, £349, and is joined by the AVR-X1100W (pictured), £399, the AVR-X2100W, £499, and the AVR-3100W, £799.

There are details still to follow on the range's three high-end models, though we do know product names and prices - namely the AVR-X4100W, £1299, the AVR-X5200W, £1699, and the AVR-X7200W, £2399.

All of Denon's new 2014 AV receivers will share a number of features, including Bluetooth and wi-fi as standard, HDMI 2.0 with 4K 60fps capability and a brand new Eco Mode that'll save up to 50% of energy while the AVR is in use - previously this only worked when the receiver was in standby.

Spotify Connect will be present and correct across the board too, while format fans will be happy to see the that DSD and AIFF files are now supported as standard.

There will also be a brand new dedicated AVR app for phones and tablets, packing a new user interface and improved graphics, all with an aim to make set up and operation easier than ever.

Read on below for the details we have so far on the amps – we'll be updating it as we hear more.
