Audyssey premium suites of room correction technology

Denon AV amplifiers use the Audyssey suite of EQ software for simple, accurate set-up and calibration. With the supplied Audyssey measuring microphone, Audyssey measures all the speakers in your home theatre, and tunes the AV amplifier to provide the smoothest, most optimal overall listening experience for your room. This AV amplifier supports Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room correction technology. The other supported Audyssey features are Dynamic EQ, and Dynamic Volume.

The app is available for purchase in iOS and Google Play stores.


11-channel processing, 9- channel amplification

9-channel amplification does not mean you need to stop at max 11 channel speaker configuration. With external 2-channel amplification that can be assigned to either Front, Left, and Right, or a pair of height channels, you can setup an 11-channel speakerconfiguration such as 7.1.4, allowing you even moreflexibility and an engulfing audio experience.


Subwoofer outputs & settings

Blanket yourself in evenly distributed, accurate bass.Featuring up to four subwoofer outputs to smooth out low frequencies and provide better dispersion. No audible peaks or dips — just powerful, roomfilling bass. Tweak your subwoofer settings to your preference when more than two subwoofers are connected. Select "Standard" if you want evenly distributed bass performance. Select "Directional" if you want more directional bass performance seamlessly integrated into the speaker channel closest to each subwoofer in the room.


Pre-Amplifier Mode

Your Denon AV amplifier can work as a perfect AV preamplifier with the latest HDMI connectivity. Pre-Amplifier Mode provides a cleaner signal path and more tolerance in clipping level by disconnectinginternal amplifiers. Add the flexibility to disconnectselect speaker channels so that you can use the AV receiver's built-in amplification to drive non-critical channels to get a clearer signal path for the channels driven by external amplification.
