The heart of Denon’s home theater lineup
The AVR-X2600H occupies a sort of “sweet spot” within Denon’s 2019 receiver lineup. It has everything I look for in a surround sound receiver, without the added cost of advanced multi-zone features that you may not need.
Ideal for a 7.1-channel surround sound system
The AVR-X2600H can power up to seven speakers at the same time. Use all seven channels in a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos® or DTS:X™ system. Or go with a traditional 5.1-channel setup, and repurpose the extra two channels for music in another zone.
Enjoy music your way
If you’re like me, you’ll use your new receiver to play music in addition to watching movies. The ‘X2600H lets you stream tunes from your phone or tablet through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and even Apple AirPlay 2.
Love spinning vinyl? This receiver has a built-in phono input for your turntable. And if you’ve carefully curated an awesome music library, you can play high-resolution tracks from a USB drive or networked computer.
Expand your system with HEOS Built-in
HEOS Built-in technology lets you access all of your music — from your personal library, internet radio, and popular streaming services like Pandora®, Spotify®, and TIDAL — through the ‘X2600H.
This receiver can be easily integrated into a wireless multi-room audio system as well. Stream music to HEOS wireless speakers and components in different rooms, and control each room’s sound independently with the free HEOS app.
The app lets you control playback, browse music sources, and select which rooms you want to use. Play the same music throughout your home, or listen to something different in each room.
Just ask Alexa…
The HEOS Home Entertainment skill for Amazon Alexa lets you use your Echo devices to issue voice commands to the AVR-X2600H. You can easily switch inputs and control volume and playback on the receiver and other HEOS enabled devices.
Alexa can also help you search for music and stream different content to different rooms in your multi-room HEOS system.
…or your Google Assistant
The ‘X2600H is also compatible with Google Assistant-enabled devices. Launch a song in the HEOS app, and then ask your Google Home or Google Pixel phone to change volume, play, pause, skip tracks, and more.
