Denon AVC-2920 is a new midrange AV receiver that sports 1080p pass-through via HDMI v1.1 interface. It also features acclaimed Audyssey EQ XT for automatic room correction with included microphone. All 7 channels boast 110 W into 8 Ohm with THD of 0.05%. Analog video over component inputs can be converted to 480p on HDMI output. Audio encodings AVC2920 supports are DTS-ES - DTS96/24 - DTS Neo:6 - DTS - Dolby Digital EX - Dolby Digital - Dolby Pro Logic IIx - AAC.
In short, AVC2920 is not very impressive with an Â800 ( about$950 ) price tag. Just the fact that it features HDMI and 1080p pass-through is not enough to convince me to shell out $950. However, room correction is a worthy feature.
