 Denon 5 Year WarrantyA special receiver to celebrate Denon's 100th anniversary

The AVR-A100 looks dressed for a black-tie affair, but Denon gave this 100th anniversary special edition receiver lots more than just a handsome high-gloss finish. Nine channels of clean, high-current power plus state-of-the-art surround sound and picture processing treat you to thrilling home theater performance. A full lineup of entertainment options adds flexibility to your setup. For instance, you can connect this receiver to your wired home computer network and access music and photos stored on your PC. You can enjoy a movie in your main room while family members listen to music in two additional rooms — all using just the receiver's built-in amplification. Tune in clear digital HD Radio™ broadcasts. Plus, you can plug your iPod® straight into the receiver's front panel or upgrade to Apple AirPlay® for ultra-convenient access to your iTunes® library — no dock needed

Underneath the glossy exterior — plenty of raw Denon power

When it comes to sound quality, the AVR-A100 means business. Each of its nine amplifier channels generates a muscular 140 watts of high-current power. With that many channels, you have options. You can connect additional "height" and "width" speakers to supplement a traditional five-speaker home theater setup, and use the receiver's built-in Audyssey DSX processing for expansive surround sound that truly envelops you. Or, if your front speakers are biampable, you could supply them with two channels each for greater clarity and bass. You can also dedicate some channels to driving speakers installed in a second or third listening zone.

This receiver's got connections

You get plenty of inputs for all of your audio/video sources. There are seven 3D-ready HDMI inputs for high-def digital components like your Blu-ray player, cable box, or satellite receiver. Two HDMI outputs let you connect a flat-panel TV and an overhead video projector. Hook up your iPod or a USB thumb drive directly to one of the receiver's two USB inputs to enjoy your digital music. An Ethernet port lets you make a wired connection to your broadband router for even more entertainment options, from MP3 files and photos stored on your PC's hard drive to the endless stream of music available via Internet radio stations. Your biggest problem might be deciding where to begin the fun.

Unleash your iTunes® music — upgrade to AirPlay®

Apple's exciting AirPlay technology lets you access your favorite music from your iPhone®, iPad™, iPod touch®, or your iTunes library on your computer using this Denon receiver. You'll be able to control iTunes and see music information, including your album art, track titles, and artist info on your compatible Apple device, or on your TV. First you will need a firmware upgrade for $49.99. Go to and click on the AirPlay banner for instructions on how to purchase and activate the upgrade. Requires a wireless home network.
