Warranty Period: 2 years (3 with registration)


Experience state-of-the-art surround sound with the AVR-X1300W 7.2 channel Dolby Atmos AV receiver, which delivers breathtaking immersive surround sound with today's advanced movie soundtracks. Bring home the same revolutionary 3D surround sound used in premium movie theatres, with the ability to create an overhead soundfield to deliver a dramatically expanded sonic space. What's more, a future firmware update will enable the AVR-X1300W to decode DTS:X soundtracks, for full compatibility with all current 3D sound formats.

The AVR-X1300W is futureproof, too, thanks to an advanced video section fully compatible with the latest HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all six of its HDMI inputs. With 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 21:9 video, 3D, and BT.2020 pass-through support on every input, the AVR-X1300W is ready for the next generation of Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes and other 4K Ultra HD sources.

Powerful 7 Channel Discrete Amplifier with Eco Mode

Dual Subwoofer Outputs

Featuring high current discrete power output devices on all seven channels, the AVR-X1300W is rated at 80 watts per channel (8 ohms, 20 Hz~20 kHz, 0.08% THD). It's also equipped with high-current low impedance drive capability, for compatibility with the widest range of loudspeaker models (down to 4 ohms). A single subwoofer can give an uneven bass response at the main listening position, with audible peaks and dips. The AVR-X1300W provides for two subwoofers: positioned in different locations, they will even out the low frequencies, for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area.

The Eco mode adjusts the power amplifier's output according to the volume level to reduce power consumption, with an on-screen Eco meter providing real-time monitoring of the power-saving.


Smart TV Connectivity

Using the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality provided on some Smart TVs, it's possible to control Denon receivers with the TV's remote handset. Set the receiver's "HDMI control" to ON, choose the "Smart Menu" receiver control functions on the TV, and the Smart Menu home screen allows direct access to a range of receiver functions including source and surround mode, the main setup menu, and the Quick Select 'one-touch' presets.

Audyssey Silver

As the first AV receiver manufacturer to embrace Audyssey's advanced DSP audio algorithms, Denon brings to the AVR-X1300W the Audyssey Silver suite of DSP functions, which includes MultEQ XT, Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume.

Audyssey MultEQ XT automatic room acoustic measurement and correction system uses athe supplied microphone and a test-tone sequence to match your speakers to your room's acoustics, giving the smoothest, most natural tonal balance. The MultEQ XT system here provides greater filter precision for the main and satellite speakers, with eight times the resolution of the base MultEQ system, at for up to 8 measurement locations to ensure the best sound for the whole family, not just one ideal 'sweet spot'.

Audyssey Dynamic EQ uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to continually adjust tonal balance to deliver full range sound, even at lower volume levels; Audyssey Dynamic Volume smoothes out those annoying volume jumps – especially from loud commercials – for an easier viewing experience.


With the AVR-X1300W it's possible to enjoy 5.1-channel surround in one room, while another 'zone' plays another source—such as CD or steraming audio. You can simply connect a pair of stereo speakers to the multi-room amplified outputs. Or, connect a separate stereo amp and speakers to the Zone 2 pre-outs, allowing full 7 channel surround sound in the main room with stereo in the second.

Convenient USB Port

The convenient front panel USB port provides a digital connection from music from your iPod touch, iPhone and iPad, while also charging the device. You can also connect a USB drive and listen to files from MP3 all the way up to high resolution DSD (2.8/5.6 MHz), and lossless FLAC lossless (up to 24-bit/192-kHz).

Color Coded 4-Way Speaker Terminals

The high quality multiway speaker terminals handle a number of cable terminations including banana plugs, and are also color-coded for correct first-time hook-up; color-coded speaker cable labels are provided.


Easy To Use Quick Select Functions



There are four Quick Select Function buttons on the front panel and the remote control, letting you choose your preferred input set-up and sound mode for your favorite sources. You can even set up your favourite Internet radio station on a Quick Select button.


Easy To Setup, Easy To Use
