Featuring an improved HDMI interface, now with 8K, and an awesome 13.2 multi-channel amplifier, the Denon AVC-X8500HA delivers cinematic perfection.

Fully enveloping, 13.2 channel cinema sound
This 13.2 channel Denon is amongst the most immersive on the market. With support for Atmos or DTS:X at up to 7.2.6, even the largest rooms can be enveloped by sound. If you’d prefer to spread the sound around, the assignable speaker outputs let you power two additional zones and still have the capacity for a 5.2.4 Atmos speaker configuration.

8K support
Featuring a dedicated, 8K compliant HDMI input and matching output, the Denon AVC-X8500HA is now ready for the next generation of TV. Not only does the amp pass through 8K/60Hz signals, but it also upscales HDMI signals to the 8K standard, too – helping you make the most of your 8K TV with 4K UHD media. If you’ve not yet made the jump to 8K TV, the socket also handles up to 4K/120Hz signals, for the highest quality pass through and upscaling with 4K UHD.

Game on
The latest HDMI support also heralds a big improvement in gaming. 4K/120Hz and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) support maximise resolution and clarity. Quick Frame Transport (QFT) and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) help eliminate lag and frame tearing, giving you a smoother, more responsive gaming experience.

Your choice of immersive 3D sound system
From Dolby to DTS, Auro to IMAX, the AVC-X8500HA has you covered. Standard formats include Dolby Atmos, Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization Technology, DTS:X, DTS Virtual:X, DTS Neural:X, IMAX Enhanced, and Auro-3D. This huge range of options means that you can adapt your surround sound speaker system from the simplest system with ‘virtual height’ speakers to a full-blown 13.2 system that truly brings the cinema home.

Mono-block amp design for top quality sound
The finest surround processing deserves the finest amplification and that’s exactly what this Denon has. A high current, premium transformer delivers effortless power to the front mono block amplifiers. These type of amps split the power between right and left channels, giving enhanced detail and an even more spacious and natural sound.

Advanced multiroom functionality including two-zone HDMI and three-zone sound
The AVC-X8500HA has no fewer than three HDMI outputs with an independent Zone 2. This means you can run audio and video to another screen, in another room independently from the twin, main outputs. An RS232 socket, IR jacks and twin DC triggers make this reference quality Denon ideal for sophisticated home installation systems.

HEOS built-in - for the finest multiroom audio
HEOS multiroom music systems connect together by dual-band Wi-Fi, making them easy to set up with your existing home network. Up to 32 HEOS units can be set up at one time, ensuring even the largest of homes are covered for multiroom music. With HEOS already built-in, the AVC-X8500HA is ready to go as a single 'zone' without any further adaptors.

Control it all with the HEOS app
Once you've set up your HEOS speaker system, you can stream music effortlessly via the dedicated HEOS app. Available for Apple iOS and Android, the app not only lets you stream your stored music but also Internet radio services and popular streaming services such as Spotify, Tidal, Napster and Deezer.

Bluetooth, AirPlay 2 and built-in wi-fi for the complete networking experience
With both Bluetooth and AirPlay 2 connectivity it's easy to connect all your smartphones, tablets and compatible lap/desktops and stream music wirelessly. The AVC-X8500HA also comes with wi-fi and Internet radio. Simply connect to your home network via Ethernet or wi-fi and access thousands of Internet radio sites via TuneIn as well as subscription services such as Spotify Connect, TIDAL, Deezer and more (Premium accounts may be required).

Audyssey MultEQ XT32 for simple room set-up
Featuring Audyssey's high-end MultEQ XT32 technology, the AVC-X8500HA adapts itself to your room's acoustics. The XT32 version of this automatic measuring and set-up device features include Audyssey Dynamic Volume, Dynamic EQ, LFC and SubEQ HT for total control. If you want to take this even further, purchase the MultEQ Editor App (at additional cost) and you've access to advanced user settings.

Let your home cinema sound make an impact, with the Denon AVC-X8500HA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Denon AVC-X 8500H Top of the range Denon amp. Exceedingly well made, loads of connections, easy setup, step by step guide on screen, excellent sound quality. Once again superb service from Richer Sounds, Kingston. Thanks to the whole team.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A comprehensive sound Just the sub-woofer to connect, but the sound is really impressive. The only question I have is that sometimes within a film, the audio increases in volume on the back sp[eakers (only for 30 seconds), but I suspect I've done something wrong when tuning the speakers. I have since bought a Denon 150, and for a remote speaker, it is brilliant.
