Denon Pre/pro Finally In Europe

Recommended Posts

there priced at 7000 euroes each

Very nice FRANIN; I notice the power amp has isolated windings coming off the monoblock transformers-not cheap :blink: Looks like another 2 channel amp is needed with the 5 ch pictured.

it will be a very expenssive outlay.The pre-amp might just do me!

features look great, although im not sure im sold Denon's new design.

i shudder to think what it will cost if/when it makes it here.....

hopefully the first of many new pre-pro's to come.

I want the AVP-A1HD!!! it looks awsome...v1.3 HDMI supported, all the latest HD sound formats, ethernet, looks like it has onboard video scaling as well (by DVDO??). At 7000 Euros it's a bargain, but needless to say the price here will be unrealistic so it looks like another overseas import job.

Anyone want to buy my Parasound Halo C2 AV controller and VP30/ABT102? It just goes to show how good value the AVP-A1HD is as my C2 costs that much (in Australia) and it doesn't do half the stuff the Denon does. Add the cost of the scaler to the C2 and you're looking at a no brainer for value for money with the Denon.

Edit: not available until October 2007

Agree with you there Brodric, certainly looks the goods. Am still curious to see what else comes out though...

One question, it looks like there is only XLR interconnects, is it possible to put an adaptor to change this to rca or one would need to upgrade to an XLR amp to make it work?

It should have seperate rca pre-outs.I will only get the pre-amp.The power amp looks good but i reckon it will be a backbreaker.

Excellent... so when should I start looking to buy this thing??

It's being released to the market in October. I'll be looking out for it on pricejapan, or it might be worthwhile a special trip to Hong Kong if this thing weighs in at under 32kg.

FRANIN; must be right about the rca's Gino ; two of the XLR'S were labelled sw [subwoofer] I think and 2 were to drive the inevitable back surround amp :P - If all amps are bridged :blink:

Beejay ; I think the pre has at least a reon chip;but probably has the top of the line realta ;like the 3930ci dvd player :P

edit ; I think your right beejay; I cant read German and when it said 5x500 watts into 4 ohms I didnt consider it was probably bridged :D

I am also looking at it to replace my AVR-4806. The other contender is the AVR-5308Ci which I will use as a Preamp.

Here is some more info on the upcoming AVR units-

...Here's a BIG bone. First, with the models. The next CI series from Denon will incorperate the 2308, 2808, 3808, 4308 and 5308 models. The 4806CI has been replaced with the 5308CI and the 5805MKIICI has been replaced with a preamp model AVP-A1HDCI and a power amp to be named later. With the exception of the separates, we should be seeing these models by August. Power output goes from 100-150wpc and weight hasnt changed much, so Denon must think they have a good handle on the power aspect, also. All except the 2308CI will incorperate loseless audio decoding in the amp via HDMI. All versions will have the other benefits of HDMI v.1.3 but the 2308 will not have the auto lip sync. All will have 6 or 8 position Audyssey Cal System and the 3808 and above will have Audyssey PRO which will calibrate up to 32 acoustic postions and HAS to be done by a Denon certified installer in your area. They have a compressed audio restorer which is supposed to make music on your iPod sound a lot better. By the way, for you iPod fanatics, the Denon dock goes wireless with these. 1080P scaling in ALL of them, lower 4 from Faroudja and 5308 from Silicon Optix. New graphic user interfaces on upper 3. Thats all for now. If youd like to know more specifics, get with me on a one on one basis and I can answer your questions. PEACE!
