Key Features & Benefits
HEOS wireless multi-room music streaming, controlled by free HEOS app
Built-in HEOS technology allows the AVR-X4300H to become part of the HEOS wireless multi-room system, allowing you to enjoy your favorite music anywhere – and everywhere – around your home. Share music stored on your home network, Internet radio or streaming services with HEOS wireless speakers, or even other HEOS-capable receivers, throughout the house. And it’s all controlled by the free HEOS app, installed on as many smartphones and tablets as you like! The app gives you instant multi-room audio control, meaning you can command music in every room from any device: play different music from different sources in every room, group several rooms together and play the same song, perfectly synchronized, in party mode!
The HEOS app puts multiple streaming services in the palm of your hand, ready to play on your AVR or any devices on your HEOS network! Enjoy music from Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn Internet radio, Amazon Prime Music, iHeart Radio, Sirius XM, Sound Cloud, Tidal, Rhapsody or Deezer (*), or use the HEOS app to stream tunes or whole albums from your phone, USB stick, or computers and NAS drives on your home network. Whatever you want to hear, access it directly from the HEOS app, complete with support for favorites and playlist functions.
Dolby’s revolutionary Dolby Atmos technology dispenses with the channel-based surround sound coding used for decades, in favour of advanced object-based coding, giving the sound designer the ability to place sounds precisely anywhere in the three-dimensional soundspace. Now you can enjoy this award-winning technology at home with the AVR-X4300H, which features the ability to connect a 7.1 surround sound speaker system and 2 additional overhead speakers or Dolby Atmos-certified elevation speakers for the ultimate home theater experience.
The latest immersive surround sound system, DTS:X features similar object-based audio
coding, and provides for overhead speakers to deliver a stunning surround sound experience. This includes both Dolby Surround and Neural:X upmixing: users with a ‘3D’ sound speaker set-up are able to get an enhanced surround experience from conventional Dolby- or DTS-encoded content, or even music in stereo, using the full set of speakers installed in the listening room.
In order to properly handle the multitude of advanced digital audio decoding and processing functions, the AVR-X4300H features an sophisticated DSP audio processing system that incorporates no less than 4 powerful high speed fourth generation SHARC DSP processors, which together have a combined continuous processing capability of 10 GFLOPS (10 billion floating point numerical computations per second).
Built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and AirPlay capability
Featuring Bluetooth and Wi-Fi wireless streaming connectivity, the AVR-X4300H is equipped with an advanced dual antenna system for robust and error-free streaming even in congested urban environments. Connected to the Internet through your home Wi-Fi network (or with a hard-wired connection via the RJ-45 Ethernet LAN port), it allows you to enjoy your favorite tracks from streaming music services such as Spotify Connect. You can also choose from thousands of Internet radio stations from around the world, and enjoy music and speech entertaiment of virtually every genre.
AirPlay lets you play your favourite tracks wirelessly from your iPod touch, iPhone or iPad, and via network streaming you can listen to music files stored on your home PC or Mac, or NAS devices.
Discover the incredible fidelity of high resolution audio tracks with the AVR-X4300H’s ability to decode up to 24-bit/192-kHz lossless files (FLAC and WAV; ALAC/Apple Lossless to 24-bit/96kHz), as well as DSD 2.8MHz (the audiophile format of SACD) and now 5.6MHz tracks, too. Play them from memory devices via the front panel USB, or from network sources – the AVR-X4300H will also play lossy file types such as MP3 and WMA.
Most advanced Audyssey Room Correction Suite
Equipped with the full Audyssey Platinum suite of advanced DSP algorithms, the AVR-X4300H features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction. With the supplied measurement microphone, MultEQ XT32 analyzes each speaker’s output (including the subwoofers) at up to 8 measurement locations and generates precision digital filters that optimize each channel for the correct frequency and time domain response.
Audyssey Dynamic Volume smoothes out annoying jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower levels and still enjoy clear dialogue, music and sound effects. Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides precision tonal tailoring for full range clarity at any listening level.
Audyssey Low Frequency Containment uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to deliver a full range tonal balance, including deep bass, but without disturbing close-by neighbors or family members in other rooms, and features a multi-step adjustment that lets you dial in the amount of containment to your preference. Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual DSP tailoring of each subwoofer in a dual subwoofer setup, for deeper bass with improved definition, compared to a single subwoofer configuration.
Dual Subwoofer Outputs
A single subwoofer can give an uneven bass response at the main listening position, with audible peaks and dips. The AVR-X4300H provides for two subwoofers: positioned in different locations, they will even out the low frequencies, for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area. It also provides Audyssey Sub EQ HT to give individual tailoring of each subwoofer via digital signal processing.
You can enjoy your favorite movie in the main room, while others enjoy stereo sound from different sources in 2 other rooms. The AVR-X4300H is equipped with speaker connections, as well as pre-amp outputs for a 2nd zone and 3rd zone. There’s also a dedicated HDMI output for 2nd zone audio and video so you can watch and enjoy 2 different video sources at the same time.
External Control and IP Control Capabilities
The AVR-X4300H is equipped with a range of features that provide enhanced control capabilities and compatibility with 3rd party and custom integration solutions. For remote control compatibility with other components in your home theater system, the AVR-X4300H features an IR (infrared) remote control input and remote control output on the rear panel, along with dual 12V trigger outputs.
