The Denon AVR-X2400H is the latest amp to grace Denon’s IN-Command line. The 2400H is designed to be 4K video capable. As such, it supports a number of 4K HDR formats. Of course, the main purpose of any AV receiver is to decode audio and this amp does not disappoint in that regard either. The receiver decodes a host of hi-res music files as well as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X home theater formats.

Most home theater users will probably use the 2400H’s HDMI inputs of which it has plenty. In total, it has 8 HDMI inputs and 2 outputs. The amp’s inputs are 4K compatible and support the latest and greatest features that 4K has to offer. BT.2020, 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 21:9 video are all supported. A couple different flavors of HDR have emerged and the 2400H supports most of them including Dolby Vision and Hybrid Log Gamma. HLG is expected to be unlocked later-on in the year with a firmware update. The receiver not only can pass through a 4K signal, but it can also upscale video to near 4K quality. For multi-zone audio, the Denon AVR-X2400H allows you to run a stereo pair of speakers in a separate room.


Being that the 2400H is a member of Denon’s IN-Command line, it has a number of convenient features for custom installers. The receiver includes IP controls and Control4 SDDP (Simple Device Detection Protocol) certification for integration with Control4 home automation equipment. A RS-232 serial port is included to facilitate direct equipment connections. Last, but not least, the amp also has an IR (infrared) remote control input on its rear.
