Denon Unveils IN-Command Networking A/V Receiver Line
Stressing networking capability and ease of use, Denon Electronics is fielding a 2011 product range dominated by an A/V receiver (AVR) line. The line features lower prices and fewer SKUs whose highlights include the first three models in the company’s new IN-Command Series, which launches in May.
The models, ranging downward in price from the $999.99 AVR-3312CI to the $599.99 AVR-2112CI, feature sleeker cosmetics, a less-cluttered front panel and a roster of features designed to tap into consumers’ desire for lifestyle-focused audio products that enable simplified connectivity and access to their content.
All three are supported with a three-year warranty and have built-in Apple AirPlay music-streaming capability – as does the AVR-1912, one of four new core-line AVRs shipping this month that at $529.99 is the industry’s lowest-priced AVR with that functionality. Six of the AVRs offer a Setup Wizard feature that eliminates the product manual and enables simplified first-time setup of the models.
