Cyber Monday Receiver Deal: Denon AVR-X1300W Dolby Atmos/DTS:X for $429 (Save $170)

By Rachel Cericola

We've talked about Dolby Atmos and DTS:X at length -- and how awesome both audio formats can be. However, we understand that it can be daunting and expensive to upgrade your system. Well, not today.

Amazon is currently discounting the Denon AVR-X1300W 7.2-channel Receiver. This model features a list price of $599, but Amazon is knocking off $170 for Cyber Monday, making the cost a very cool $429. That even includes free shipping!

That's really a small price to pay for such immersive sound. First announced back in May 2016, this model comes with support for Dolby Atmos out of the box. (The DTS:X and the DTS Neural:X upmixer can be added via a firmware upgrade later this year.) If you pair it with the proper speaker configuration and Dolby Atmos content, you can experience sound from every angle -- including overhead. Find out more about the technology, the receiver, and this deal on Amazon's product page:

The AVR-X1300W has seven discrete amplifier channels, with each cranking 80 watts. It also has support for HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all six of the receiver's HDMI inputs, as well as 4K Ultra HD video with 4K 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 21:9 video, 3D, and BT.2020 pass-through capabilities on every input.

For more music options, the AVR-X1300W has built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Apple AirPlay for easy wireless streaming from your favorite portable devices. Of course, you can also stream web radio, Pandora, Spotify Connect, and SiriusXM straight to the unit. (Just know that subscriptions and/or fees may apply.) Denon says that this model can even play High-Resolution Audio files, such as FLAC, AIFF, or DSD (even up to 5.6MHz).

Other features include Dolby Surround, a front-panel USB port, Audyssey MultEQ XT calibration tools, Audyssey Dynamic Volume, and Audyssey Dynamic EQ.

When purchasing this receiver, just make you place your order with Amazon -- and not one of the retailer's third-party sellers. Amazon is offering the discounted price and the free shipping. Better get one before this Cyber Monday sale ends or they run out of stock!
