Two new AV receivers have been revealed.
Denon has announced the latest additions to its S-Series home audio lineup. The new AVR-S720W and AVR-S920W will serve as the successors to the previously released AVR-S710W and AVR-S910W.
The AVR-S720W is a 7.2 channel receiver with 165W maximum power output per channel (6ohm, 1kHz, 1ch driven), 75W (8ohm, 20Hz-20kHz,THD:0.08%) Power Amp. Meanwhile, the AVR-S920W is a 7.2 channel receiver with 185W maximum power output per channel (6ohm, 1kHz, 1ch driven), 90W(8ohm, 20Hz-20kHz,THD:0.08%) Power Amp. Both models include integrated support for Dolby Atmos and future support for DTS:X via an upcoming firmware update expected in August. Likewise, both receivers offer dual band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, along with 4K Ultra HD full rate pass through via HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 compliant connections with support for 4K 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR), 21:9 video, 3D, and BT.2020 pass through HDR (High Dynamic Range). In addition, the AVR-S720W and AVR-S920W also include high resolution DSD (2.8/5.6MHz), FLAC, ALAC, AIFF, and WAV audio playback.

The Denon AVR-S720W ($479) and AVR-S920W ($579) will be available later this month.
