Denon will release by the end of the month a couple of new entry-level receivers, the AVC-1909 and AVC-1509.

The first one, priced at $790, is a 7.1-channel receiver with 7x 140W output (6Ω), high-performance 32-bit DSP, Faroudja DCDi video processing with 1080p up-conversion, Audyssey’s Dynamic Volume automatic volume leveling system, Dolby TrueHD / Dolby Digital Plus / DTS-HD Master Audio support and HDMI 1.3a I/O.

Concerning the second amplifier, it provides only 5.1-channel audio with an output power rated at 130W per channel (6Ω). However, as the amplifier is not compatible with 7.1 audio, it doesn't support the latest 7.1 channel surround sound formats. There is also HDMI I/O with video switching, 32-bit DSP and Audyssey’s Dynamic Volume. It will be available for $470.
