With the addition of a separate power amplifier, the AVR-X1000’s multi-zone functionality lets other people enjoy music or video entertainment from a separate source in a different room while you enjoy your own programs in the main room.

Denon AVR-X1000
Audyssey Silver Built-In

The AVR-X1000 comes with Denon's Audyssey Silver package, which includes Audyssey MultEQ XT, Audyssey Dynamic Volume, and Audyssey Dynamic EQ.

Audyssey MultEQ XT calibrates the system for up to eight different seating positions, and it uses more and higher quality filters for better results, especially in the bass region (i.e. frequencies below 200Hz). As a result, bass is more impactful and is more evenly distributed throughout the room.

Audyssey Dynamic Volume senses the impending arrival of very loud sounds and automatically reduces the difference between normal and extra-loud programming. Additionally, Audyssey Dynamic EQ automatically adjusts subwoofer and surround speaker levels for maximum performance at any playback volume.


The Denon Setup Assistant simplifies installation and allows you to optimize the AVR-X1000 for your speaker setup.

The exclusive Denon Setup Assistant walks you through the process of optimizing the AVR-X1000 for your speakers and source equipment. The supplied color-coded speaker cable labels ensure correct speaker cable hookup the very first time, thanks to the matching color coding on the speaker-wire inputs.

The multi-way speaker-wire-binding post connections on the rear panel are banana-plug compatible and arranged in a horizontal configuration with a "12 o'clock" speaker wire input.

High-Power Five-Channel Power Amplifier

For an optimum surround sound listening experience, the AVR-X1000 features identical power amp circuitry for all channels and includes an all-discrete power amplifier output stage design.

The audessy xt that this receiver uses made the initial setup very easy.

The Denon AVR-X1000 is the successor to last year's 4-1/2 star rated Denon AVR-1713. Most features are the same as the AVR-1713. Like the AVR-1713, the AVR-X1000 is a 5.1-channel surround sound receiver that accepts a total of six input sources, plus TV audio as a seventh input source.

Over the past few years Denon has been gradually improving the look of their receivers. The AVR-X1000 has the look of a very high-end receiver, comparable to Marantz and Pioneer Elite receivers, yet it sells at a mid-range price.

What's new?

* The AVR-X1000 has a longer warranty (3 years) than the AVR-1713 (2 years).
* The speaker connections on the back of the AVR-X1000 are color coded for easier setup. Last year's model did not have color-coded speaker connections.
* The AVR-X1000 supports both AM and FM radio. Last year's AVR-1713 only supported FM radio.
* Both models support Apple Airplay, Internet radio, Sirius XM, and Pandora, but the AVR-X1000 adds support for Spotify, too.
* Both models support MP3, WMA, AAC, and FLAC audio formats. The AVR-X1000 adds support for the Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC) as well.
* The AVR-1713 used up and down buttons to select the input source. The AVR-X1000 uses a more attractive dial on the left-hand side.
* The AVR-X1000 has updated setup software.
* Denon's list price for the AVR-X1000 ($499) is $50 higher than last year's AVR-1713 ($449).

Comparison with the step-up Denon AVR-X2000:

* The AVR-X1000 supports 5.

I run a 5.1 living room based setup with 4 Klipsch WB-14s, 1 Klipsch WC-24 and a Power Sound Audio XV15 sub. All of my gear is HDMI, as is all of my connections because I have no legacy gear. This receiver seems like it was custom built for me, as I don't need or want 7.2 channel capability or video processing (paying for features that I will never use bothers me to no end), but I demand Audyssey XT.

The onscreen display is very nice. Everything is laid out where you would expect it to be, and you can rename sources, hide sources, assign inputs, adjust lip sync ect... with ease. The volume display is overlayed on the screen through HDMI, and with the press of the info button, you can see a quick overview of things like volume, current input, incoming signal type, outgoing speaker layout to play that signal, and current sound mode.......Sweet! The front panel display can be dimmed or turned off completely. If you do turn it off, it will comeback on for a few seconds when you change sources or sound modes, then it goes out again.

I used my tried and true 8 point Audyssey XT calibration approach, as this is not my 1st Audyssey XT receiver, as I previously had an Onkyo 709 that failed one too many times. The end result of Audyssey XT is something that has to be heard. The biggest improvements are in the bass and the entire sound field envelopment. If you are new to Audyssey, the first thing you will ask yourself is "Where did my bass go?" This is because you are used to hearing a subwoofer that is A) running too hot, and B) bloated with a 50-60hz room hump. Once you get over that, you will start to hear "layers" of bass that you have NEVER heard before in your room. Sounds that used to just be one loud, muddy "boom", are now detailed, tight and powerful.

Was debating with X2000 and X1000, realized for my room configuration I dont need a 7.1 configuration & also 4K scaling not needed.

Decided to go with AVR-X1000 and the bet paid off, I have connected following devices

(1) Apple TV
(2) Comcast Cable
(3) Sony Blu Ray
(4) Media server

Hooked up to 5.1 surround (pre-wired) in-ceiling speakers.

My favorite feature is Audyessy setup, amazing calibration technique and works like a champ.

Very vivid sounds and dialog. I'm using polk in-cieling surround speakers, osd directed field center & polk subwoofer.

High quality sound reproduction, even at low volume very clear bass, tone and voice levels.

I would highly recommend it.

I shopped around for a AVR for about a week. I had an Onkyo that got so hot I thought it was going to catch fire, and an older Kenwood that couldn't handle my 4 ohm speakers, plus my need for HDMI was growing so I really wanted something new. I considered Denon, Yamaha and Sony. Despite Cnet's claim that the Sony STR-DN840 was the best AVR in the price range, the reviews about the GUI left me thinking I'll had wished I waited for an upgraded version. I also couldn't find anywhere that said it would support 4 ohm speakers. The Yamaha RX-V673 was another choice, but reviews seemed to talk about having to send it back for service more often than not. In fact at the moment Amazon has the item under review.

It's really a daunting task to choose one of these receivers. Each manufacturer has multiple versions to meet varying price ranges, and not to mention the previous year's models are also still available. Multiply that by the number of manufacturers, and you have a dozen or more receivers to choose from. I didn't want to spend more than about $500, so I at least was able to cross off a few higher models. I don't have a 7.1 speaker setup, so I didn't really need/want a 7.1 receiver. (If I had chosen a 7.1, I would have bi-amped my front speakers.) I wanted it to be networkable, I didn't need wifi (my router is 3 feet from the receiver) or bluetooth (with it plugged into the network, why would I need bluetooth?) And I didn't need any of the features the other Denons had over the X1000, so it really was a perfect fit. It's also the only receiver that at least says it will work with 4 ohm speakers, which it does.
