Denon has a long and proud history in audio, video and home theatre. Founded in Japan way back in 1910 the company set out manufacturing “gramophone players” and single-sided records. In 1951 it started selling Japan’s first LP records. Other significant milestones include the world’s first viable digital recorder, THX-EX (THX Extended) home theatre systems, the first Universal Blu-ray player and the first 13.2 channel audio/video receiver. It also pioneered the development of the moving coil cartridge and Compact Disc.
The name (Den-on) was derived from a merger of the Denki Onkyo Company of Japan with other companies in 1939.
With the growth of home cinema, Denon continued its technological leadership through the introduction of some of the first processors and receivers to incorporate Dolby Digital and DTS processing.
Today, this innovative company continues to design and manufacture a sophisticated line of specialty audio, home theatre and custom audio products including amplifiers, home theatre receivers and CD players. The company has recently partnered to develop a proprietary multi-room streaming platform called HEOS, boasting impressive audio specifications, stability, easy navigation and high-resolution audio file compatibility. With HEOS capability and a free app, you can set up and control all your music wirelessly (or wired using Ethernet) from anywhere in your home.
High-quality, Denon amps have long been a favourite with discerning audiophiles, delivering rich, musical sound from multiple sources. Integrated, 2 channel models with outputs up to 160W per channel are available for those who prefer to build their own hi-fi system with separate components.
The large range of Denon Home Theatre Receivers is legendary for sonic performance, processing technologies and value.
