Denon is the latest to announce its new home theater receiver line for 2014. The new receivers are part of its newly designated S-Series, with the following model numbers, the AVR-S500BT, AVR-S700W and the AVR-S900W.
The AVR-S500BT provides up to a 5.1 channel configuration, while the AVR-S700W and AVR-S900W provide 7.1 channels and the AVR-S900W adds additional support for Dolby ProLogic IIz audio processing.

Additional audio and video features on all of the S-Series include a convenient horizontal speaker connection layout, Audio Return Channel, 4K, and 3D pass through. Also, the AVR-S900W provides both 1080p and 4K upscaling.

An added feature this year on all three receivers is the incorporation of HDMI 2.0. This means that they can pass through up to 60fps 4K input signals. The AVR-S500BT comes with 5 HDMI inputs, the AVR-S700W comes with 6, and the AVR-S900W includes 8, as well as two parallel HDMI outputs.

Note: It is important to point out that the AVR-S500BT and AVR-S700W do not provide Component Video connections.

On the other hand, in addition to their included core audio and video features, the AVR-S500BT provides a Direct USB connection for accessing music from iPod/iPhone/iPad, or USB flash drives, as well as Bluetooth streaming capability, while the AVR-S700W and S900W add Wi-Fi, Apple AirPlay, Internet Radio (Pandora, vTuner, Sirius/XM, and Spotify), and DLNA supported audio and photo streaming from network connected devices (such as PCs and NAS drives). The AVR-S700W and S900W are also compatible (via USB or DLNA) with 192kHZ/24-bit Hi-Res FLAC and WAV files and 96kHz/24-bit ALAC, AIFF, and DSD files.

All three receivers can be controlled (in addition to the provided remote), via a free downloadable app, from an iOS or Android phone.

According to Denon, the new S-Series receiver line will start arriving on store shelves beginning in June 2014.
