What's better than an Award-winning Denon AVR? How about an Award-winning Denon AVR with nearly £300 slashed from the price tag? The AVR-X2800H, former Product of the Year title holder from our 2022 Awards, is on sale right now for just £599 – that's a mighty fine deal even if the Sony TA-AN1000 has since dethroned this reciever.

We reviewed this home cinema amplifier for £869 when it launched, meaning you can take advantage of a tempting £270 saving if you're a member of Richer Sounds' VIP Member Club. It's an easy and (more importantly) free sign up that unlocks the full savings on this AVR, so be sure to sign up if you want to get the maximum savings.

Denon has been dominating the AV receiver market for some time now, so we weren't hugely surprised when the amp launched in September 2022 and proceeded to set a new benchmark for performance. Its initial launch price was £869 and £899 for the version with a DAB module. The Denon is a seven-channel AVR with 95W per channel (two channels driven, 8 ohms 20Hz-20kHz).

In our Denon AVR-X2800H review, we praised its "mature and authoritative sound" and "well-spread soundstage". Dialogue is lively and engaging, while its dynamic ability gives movies a fantastic sense of atmosphere. It's a musical performer too, and soundtracks are communicated with minimal effort.

As you'd expect from a Denon AVR, you're treated to a wide selection of connectivity options, including six HDMI inputs and two outputs. Three of the inputs are HDMI 2.1 ports and as a result, play nicely with 8K@60Hz or 4K@120Hz signals. Various HDR codecs, including HDR10, HDR10+Dolby Vision and Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) are all supported, while gamers can be safe in the knowledge they also have  VRRQFTALLM and FRL (Frame Rate Link) at their disposal too.

There's also hi-res audio support and streaming smarts to take advantage of with Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, Roon and HEOS, Denon’s multi-room software. Bluetooth is also there if you simply want to stream some tunes from a smartphone.

The 2800 also features a redesigned user interface which we described as "smart-looking and informative". Set-up is carried out by the built-in Audyssey MultEQ XT calibration software. It goes without saying you can use the Denon to drive a Dolby Atmos or DTS:X system should you wish.

We were obviously blown away by the Denon at full price, so with a huge £270 saving you can't really go wrong. If you're looking to upgrade an older AVR or looking to build a brand-new home cinema system, the AVR-X2800H is a fantastic place to start.  Don't let this excellent offer pass you by...
