Denon DRA-900H: Classic stereo receiver supporting 8K/60Hz resolution

The Denon DRA-900H stereo receiver has 6 HDMI input ports supporting 8K/60Hz resolution, the latest HDCP 2.3 protocol, as well as HLG and HDR10 high dynamic range video standards. Enjoy pristine 8K picture quality on your 8K TV or projector. The Denon DRA-900H supports both 8K pass-through and upscaling of 4K content to 8K. Supports HDCP 2.3, the latest copy protection standard, for confidence when streaming copy-protected content.


The Denon DRA-900H supports HDR (High Dynamic Range), HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), Dynamic HDR and HDR10+ pass-through. HLG offers HDR technology on top of broadcast content. Both Dynamic HDR and HDR10+ use dynamic metadata to optimize shadows and highlights as the frame changes. Dolby Vision is an incredible HDR imaging technology that delivers exceptional color, contrast and brightness on your screen. Compatible with Dolby Vision, so you can enjoy Dolby Vision content from your compatible source device and TV. The stereo receiver supports Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), Quick Frame Transfer (QFT) and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) for smooth, lag-free gaming when connected to compatible gaming devices.


The Denon DRA-900H two-channel Hi-Fi receiver has advanced network functions and is equipped with a high-current discrete amplifier with a power of 100 W per channel into an 8-ohm load. The power supply contains a transformer, which is wound using a wire made of OFC copper. The receiver circuits have a symmetrical design, guarantee the shortest signal paths and use carefully selected components, incl. custom resistors and capacitors designed specifically for audio. The model has balance and tone controls, and also allows you to bypass them when Direct mode is activated.

The device can play audio content from local network libraries (computers, NAS servers) with a LAN/WLAN connection or from external drives via a USB port built into the aluminum facade of the case. Hi-Res formats FLAC, WAV, ALAC up to 24 bit/192 kHz and DSD (2.8/5.6 MHz) are supported. Access to streaming services Spotify, Amazon Prime Music, TuneIn, Deezer, etc. is available. There is FM radio and DAB+ digital radio on board, and for vinyl lovers there is a built-in MM phono stage.


The stereo receiver has 2-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with the ability to broadcast audio to Bluetooth headphones (with the release of new firmware). The AirPlay 2 protocol is available, allowing you to organize a wireless multiroom system based on Apple devices. There is support for HEOS, a wireless multi-room ecosystem that provides control of all HEOS components with one application and gives the ability to send audio from tablets and smartphones, streaming services and local storage to any HEOS device. This ensures that the same track is played simultaneously in all rooms with perfectly accurate synchronization, or different tracks are broadcast to different rooms.


To control the Denon DRA-900H, you can use not only the remote control or application, but also your voice thanks to the support of personal assistants Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple Siri, and the proprietary Setup Assistant program helps you quickly set up the receiver. The HDMI output supports ARC Audio Return Channel, which is convenient when connecting to a TV. There is a full range of linear and digital inputs on board. There is a Pre Out for a pair of active subwoofers and a separate Pre Out for the second zone. To connect the speakers to the Denon DRA-900H, four pairs of screw terminals are used, allowing you to easily organize a two-wire connection.
