OK, true, it’s pretty hard to tell just how gargantuan Denon’s new high-end home cinema combo is from the photo above but that’s because our hand model was tragically crushed beneath their monstrous bulk. You’ll just have to believe us. At twice the size of their titanic predecessors they won’t just dominate your front room, they’ll become your neighbourhood’s defining landmark.But it’s not all about size. Denon has taken advantage of all that room inside to shovel in every feature and top quality component a home cinema fan could wish for.The AVP-A1HD THX Ultra2 AV pre/processor boasts six (count ‘em) HDMI inputs and two outputs, has built in Wi-Fi and Ethernet and supports every hi-def audio and video format known to man. And its POA-A1HD THX Ultra2 10-Channel power amp brother offers a tasty 300W x 10-channel power output. Denon is set to launch its colossal combo at the What Hi Fi? Sound and Vision/Stuff Show later this year. So get down to Hammersmith in November and gaze up at them in wonder.
