Denon is a world leader in the design and production of the highest-quality home theater, audio and software products, recognized internationally for innovative and groundbreaking products. For many decades, Denon was a brand name of Nippon-Columbia, a Japanese record label. The Denon brand came from the fusion of Denki Onkyo and others in 1939. In 2001, it established as an independent company with 98% held by Ripplewood Holdings and 2% by Hitachi. In 2002, Denon joined hands with Marantz to form D&M Holdings.

A brief History of Denon:
Denon was originally set up in 1910 as part of Nippon Chikuonki Shokai, a Japan Recorders Corporation as a manufacturer of single-sided disc records and gramophones. The company was originally referred to as Nippon ‘DENki ONkyo Kabushikigaisha’ which was later shortened to DEN-ON. The company is vigorously involved with sound systems and electric appliance production. Later the company merged with other related companies to be known by the name Denon.
The next few decades witnessed several number of mergers and tie-ups, beginning with the fusion of Denon with the Japan-US Recorders Manufacturing in 1912. In 1928 “Columbia” was introduced as a brand after the company became Japan Columbia Recorders. A further change of name occurred in 1946 when the company chose to rename itself as Nippon Columbia.
1947 saw the first establishment of the Denon brand when Nippon Columbia merged with Japan Denki Onkyo. Later in May 2002, Denon Ltd and Marantz Japan Inc. merged together to form D&M Holdings Inc. On March 1st, 2017, Sound United LLC successfully purchased all the shares of D+M Holdings.

Popular reviews on Denon Receivers:
Denon AVR-X4400H AV Receiver:
“The Denon AVR-X4400H provided solid performance with both music and movies. I was particularly impressed with the Denon’s performance with multichannel movie soundtracks. Even with seven channels of amplification being used with complex soundtracks at relatively high volumes, the Denon remained composed, without any signs of clipping or strain. The AVR-X4400H’s combination of full feature set, solid performance and the all-important ease of use makes it a very solid competitor in this segment of the AV receiver market.”
-Brian Kahn, hometheatrereview.com
“The Denon AVR-S730H is among the least expensive receivers with this level of features, including 4K/HDR compatibility, multiroom music, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Sound quality is very good with both music and movies, regardless of the speakers we used. Auto calibration worked well.”
