The Denon AVR-1912 is the entry level model in their new AirPlay enabled network AV receiver range, but it is still packed with some great features.
The Denon AVR-1912 is a 7.1-channel network streaming AV receiver that comes complete with Apple AirPlay technology, and HDMI 1.4a with support for 3D pass-through.
You can expect the same superior home theater surround sound that you are used to from Denon in this receiver which includes:
- Seven 125-watt channels with their own discrete circuit
- High definition audio support, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD
- Dolby Pro Logic IIz
- Audyssey MultEQ support to help calibrate the right sound
- DLNA support for audio and photo streaming
- Flac HD for uncompressed playback of high-definition audio files
- 6 HDMI inputs and one output
- 12,000 internet radio stations
With the addition of Apple AirPlay it means you can stream your audio directly from your iOS device or iTunes with full hands-on control from your device. With the DLNA support it has the added benefit of also being able to play a lot of non-Apple AirPlay supported files
Use the Denon Remote App for iOS devices to perform a lot of the remote functions you need, including turning the system on and off.
The Denon AVR-1912 is the budget end model among the 3 new ones from Denon.
