Denon’s 8K-ready receiver is the perfect match for your PS5


Denon is now shipping the AVR-X4800H AV receiver it first announced back in September 2022. That’s great news for home theater fans looking to step up their cinema sound game over what’s delivered by the best dolby Atmos soundbars, and it should also be of interest to gamers seeking a receiver that’s fully compatible with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S consoles.

A notable feature of the AVR-X4800H, and one that would rank it among the best AV receivers, is its support for 8K 60Hz and 4K 120Hz video pass-through on multiple HDMI 2.1 ports. Some earlier models from Denon and other AV receiver makers provided either a single full-featured HDMI 2.1 input, or even none at all, while promising a full suite of HDMI 2.1 capabilities would be added via a “future firmware update.”

The AVR-X4800H provides 8K and 4K 120Hz compatibility out of the box, and its other gaming features include support for Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), Quick Frame Transport (QFT), and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM). There’s also pass-through support for all key high dynamic range formats: Dolby Vision, HDR10+, Dynamic HDR, and HLG.

Denon’s latest receiver is similarly stacked on the audio side, offering up Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, IMAX Enhanced, and Auro 3D sound processing. Built-in Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room correction lets you fine-tune the interaction between your speakers and listening environment for the best sound, and a firmware update that will enable an upgrade to Dirac Live room correction (at extra cost) is promised for the future. Having used Dirac Live and experienced its sound quality benefits, we find that last feature especially compelling.
