For many years, movie surround soundtracks have been channel-based. Revolutionary Dolby Atmos surround sound technology dispenses with channel-based coding in favor of more advanced object-based coding, giving the sound designer the ability to precisely place sounds anywhere in the 3-dimensional space. Now, you can enjoy this same award-winning technology at home with the AVR-X1200W, which features the ability to connect a 5.1 surround sound speaker system and 2 additional overhead speakers or 2 additional Dolby Atmos-certified up-firing speakers for the ultimate home theater experience. Along with Dolby Atmos decoding and Dolby Surround Upmixing, the AVR-X1200W also features Dolby TrueHD lossless decoding and other Dolby Digital technologies.
The latest immersive surround sound system, DTS:X, features object-based audio coding that lets the sound designer place sonic elements anywhere in the 3D acoustic soundspace, and provides for overhead speakers to deliver a stunning surround sound experience.
Advanced Quad-Core 32-bit DSP Processor
Featuring an advanced quad-core 32-bit DSP processor, the AVR-X1200W easily handles multi-thread processing tasks, including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X decoding, Audyssey room acoustic correction, bass management and DSP surround simulation. The processor features tremendous processing power, with 4 300-MHz DSP cores that deliver over 1 billion computations per second.
Latest HDMI 2.0a Connectivity; HDCP 2.2 Compatible
Equipped with 6 HDMI inputs, including 1 conveniently located on the front panel, the AVR-X1200W features an advanced video section that features the latest HDMI specifications, including support for 4K Ultra HD 60 Hz full rate video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling and 21:9 video pass-through, along with support for 3D content.
The AVR-X1200W also features HDCP 2.2 compatibility, a requirement for 4K Ultra HD copy-protected content.
Built-in Bluetooth & Wi-Fi
Featuring Bluetooth & Wi-Fi wireless streaming connectivity, the AVR-X1200W is equipped with an advanced dual antenna RF transceiver system for robust and error-free streaming, even in congested urban environments. Connect to the internet through your home Wi-Fi network (or with a hard-wired connection via the RJ-45 Ethernet LAN port) and enjoy your favorite tracks from streaming music services such as Pandora, Spotify Connect and SiriusXM. You can also choose from thousands of internet radio stations around the world, and enjoy music from virtually every genre.
With AirPlay, you can enjoy listing to your favorite tracks wirelessly from your favorite iOS device, including the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad, and the AVR-X1200W is also DLNA 1.5 certified for compatibility with your home PC or Mac.

Easy To Setup, Easy To Use
With our exclusive Setup Assistant along with the Quick Start Guide, you can connect and configure your home theater system quickly and easily. The Setup Assistant features clear on-screen graphics and text that quickly and easily guide you through the setup process, optimizing critical system settings for the best possible sound quality.
Powerful 7 Channel Discrete Amplifier with Eco Mode
Featuring high current discrete power output devices on all channels, the AVR-X1200W is rated at 80 watts per channel (8 ohms, 20 Hz~20 kHz, .08% THD). For compatibility with the widest range of loudspeaker models, the AVR-X1200W is also equipped with low impedance drive capability, to provide operational stability with speakers rated at 4 ohms.
The Eco mode adjusts the power amplifier's output according to the volume level to reduce power consumption and the on-screen Eco meter lets you see the power consumption reduction in real time.
Dual Subwoofer Outputs
The AVR-X1200W features dual subwoofer outputs, which lets you connect two smaller subwoofers instead of a single larger sub, and enjoy the benefits of response averaging by having two subs in different locations in the room. With dual subwoofers, deep bass is smoother and more detailed, minimizing the peaks and dips that often result with a single subwoofer setup.
As the first A/V receiver manufacturer to embrace Audyssey's advanced DSP audio algorithms, Denon has introduced the most Audyssey-equipped products, and the AVR-X1200W features the Audyssey Silver suite of DSP functions, which includes MultEQ XT, Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume.
Audyssey MultEQ XT automatic room acoustic measurement and correction system matches your speakers to your room's acoustics, for the smoothest, most natural tonal balance. MultEQ XT provides greater filter precision for the main and satellite speakers, with 8 times the resolution compared to the base MultEQ system, at up to 8 measurement locations.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to continually adjust tonal balance so that the sound you hear is full range, even at lower volume levels, and Audyssey Dynamic Volume smoothes out annoying volume jumps, especially with loud commercials.
Enjoy stereo sound from one source in one room, and 5.1 surround sound from another source in the main room. Simply connect a pair of stereo speakers to the multi-room amplified outputs. Or, connect a separate stereo amp and speakers to the Zone 2 pre-outs, and enjoy full 7 channel surround sound in the main room.
Convenient USB Port
The convenient USB port on the front panel lets you stream tunes directly from your iPod touch, iPhone and iPad and charge your device at the same time. You can also connect a USB drive or NAS device and listen to MP3 and WAV files, and the AVR-X1200W features high resolution audio file compatibility, including DSD (2.8 MHz) and FLAC lossless decoding.
Color Coded 4-Way Speaker Terminals
The high quality speaker terminals feature multi-way connection capability to handle a wide variety of speaker cable termination types. They're also color coded for correct hookup the very first time, and color coded speaker cable labels are included.
