“The X5200 is a breeze to setup and control, with a well designed menu system and plenty of flexibility.”
“The X5200 is feature-packed and the addition of Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D is just the icing on the cake.”
“Whether it’s surround sound, immersive audio or music, the X5200 does the lot and it does it well.”
There are obviously a large number of AV receivers available, even if you’re looking for ones that support Dolby Atmos, so it’s a competitive market place. However the design, features, flexibility and performance of the Denon AVR-X5200W, make it a strong contender for anyone looking to buy a new receiver. The level of features and overall specifications are second to none and the ease of setup and well designed controls and menu systems make it a very attractive proposition.
The performance was excellent, regardless of which audio format you choose, and the Dolby Atmos decoding was incredibly immersive. If you want support for Auro-3D the choices are more limited, in terms of mass market receivers. Yes you’ll have to pay an extra fee for the privilege but it seems a small price for cutting-edge technology and the X5200 doesn’t disappoint in terms of the quality of its Auro-3D performance.
