Sometimes the differences between generations of Denon home cinema can appear minor. But that wasn’t the case with the AVR-X3600H.
Rather than merely updating the 2018 Award-winning AVR-X3500H, Denon added two amp channels and processing power for a further pair, upgraded power supply and power transformer and extruded aluminium heatsink.
Most importantly, though, it tightened up the sound to a truly impressive degree. Its predecessor had muscle, but this amp is even more clearly defined and at full fighting fitness.
It isn’t so much the fact that this is an altogether more powerful amplifier than the Award-winning AVR-X3500H – already a mighty receiver in its own right – but its muscle feels leaner, and punches tend to sting more.
Truly, this is a heavyweight in every sense of the word. That’s why we named it our AV receiver Product of the Year for 2019. For pound-per-performance value, it’s only beaten by its successor above.
- Added amplification channels
- More power than its predecessor
- Gains worthwhile technologies
- Nothing at this price
