Denon AVC-X6800H: Premium AV receiver equipped with 11 built-in power amplifiers

The Denon AVC-X6800H premium AV receiver is equipped with 11 built-in power amplifiers, making it one of the most versatile in its class. The device is equipped with the most modern technologies and can decode sound in all popular formats. The AV receiver is IMAX Enhanced certified, which guarantees the sound and picture quality of a professional cinema at home. The Denon AVC-X6800H supports the latest technology on all HDMI inputs and outputs. ARC (Audio Return Channel) or eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) makes it easy to play TV audio through your AV receiver with just one HDMI connection. eARC delivers HD and 3D audio such as Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD Master Audio and Dolby Atmos, while ARC is limited to conventional 5.1ch or PCM audio formats.


Using Dolby Atmos DTS:X and Auro-3D decoders, you can create home theaters in a 9.2.4 or 7.4.4 configuration. Using the 13.4-channel output from the processor and additional power amplifiers, 13-channel home theaters can be created on the basis of this model. If placing separate height channel speakers in such systems is undesirable, the AV receiver provides virtual surround sound modes for Dolby and DTS formats. The Denon AVC-X6800H has the ability to connect up to four subwoofers to smooth out low frequencies and provide better dispersion. No audible peaks or dips—just powerful, room-filling bass. Adjust the subwoofer settings as desired if more than two subwoofers are connected.


With the Denon AVC-X6800H AV Receiver, you can enjoy all your entertainment with the latest technology available and watch movies with unmatched clarity. Enjoy 8K movies with 8K/60Hz bandwidth and upscaling, plus the latest AV receiver technologies like Dynamic HDR and Quick Media Switching (QMS), which movies use to eliminate video latency. The device has 8 HDMI inputs and three outputs, with support for HDCP 2.3, as well as HDR10+, HGL, Dolby Vision and Dynamic HDR standards. Enjoy flawless 8K picture quality on your 8K TV or projector. The receiver supports both pass-through 8K resolution and upscaling of 4K content to 8K, and also supports the latest HDCP 2.3 copy protection standard when streaming copy-protected content.


Denon’s award-winning Setup Assistant provides simple, clear instructions to get you started. Simply connect the AV receiver to your TV and follow the on-screen instructions to connect your speakers, take acoustic measurements, and connect the sources you need. For added convenience, the AV receiver automatically renames the HDMI inputs when connected, or you can rename them manually at your convenience.

Sound processing in the AV receiver is carried out by a powerful DSP based on two SHARK+ processors, as well as a proprietary Denon AL32 circuit. To conveniently set up surround sound, the precise Audyssey Room Correction auto-calibration system is used, which allows you to take into account all the features of the room, as well as the placement of acoustics in it. Dirac Live Room Correction technology uses state-of-the-art proprietary analysis algorithms to digitally reduce room effects and improve speaker performance. Some Denon AV receivers support Dirac Live. You can purchase a Dirac Live license key to unlock this feature. Visit for more information. Expandability will be supported via a future firmware update.


The device provides the ability to stream music from network devices and on-line services, including Tidal and Spotify. High resolution PCM audio up to 24 bit / 192 kHz, as well as DSD 5.6 MHz, are possible. Wireless technologies in the Denon AVC-X6800H are represented by Wi-Fi, the proprietary HEOS multiroom system, AirPlay 2, as well as Bluetooth, and with the help of the latter the device is also capable of broadcasting a signal to wireless headphones. The Denon AVC-X6800H has support for Alexa and Google Assistant voice control, and is also certified for use with Roon systems.
