”This Denon 2018 AV receiver is seriously impressive.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.
Power up for action
Packing an impressive 105 watts per channel, the AVR-X3500H has the muscle for dynamic, punchy sound – even in larger rooms. High grade audio components mean this AV receiver isn’t just about power, it’s about quality, too, making it just as impressive with music as it is with movies. When it comes to processing power, the 32-bit AKM convertors make this Denon AVR smooth and adaptable with all audio files.
Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and DTS Virtual:X for immersive sound
Dolby Atmos uses ceiling or upwards firing speakers to produce a multi-dimensional, immersive sound that's a match for the finest cinemas. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. This highly sophisticated processor renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. If extra ceiling or upwards firing speakers are impractical then try DTS Virtual:X. This gives a good impression of extra height without the extra speakers.
Advanced multi-room functionality including two-zone HDMI
The Denon AVR-X3500H is the first AVR in their range with independent HDMI outputs. This means you can run audio and video to another screen, in another room independently from the main output. A third HDMI is also included – ideal if you have a TV and projector in the same room. An RS232 socket and DC trigger make this receiver ideal for more complex home installation systems. Both passive and active Zone 2 outputs are also standard, for audio in a second room.
Amazon Alexa voice control
Controlling a sophisticated AV receiver like this can be baffling for some members of the family, which is why Denon have made it compatible with Amazon Alexa. Simply download the HEOS Home Entertainment Skill app and then just ask Alexa. Adjust the volume, switch inputs and with other components attached, change the track – all by just asking Alexa.
HEOS built-in - for the finest multi-room audio
HEOS multi-room 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 multi-room music. With HEOS already built-in, the AVR-X3500H 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.
The AVRX3500H takes the strong connectivity of the AVR-X2500H model and improves upon it still further. With the addition of a 7.1 channel, RCA output you can split the processing from the power amplification and send the signal to suitable power amps of your choice. Matching the twin optical inputs are two further coaxial digital inputs – making this a powerful hub for all your digital sources.
Support for 4K UHD, HDR10 and HLG
The AVR-X3500H supports a wide range of formats via HDMI, which means you can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video through the receiver. All of the eight HDMI inputs and twin outputs support HDR10, HLG and BT.2020 pass-through. The HDMI sockets allow 4K pass-through, for hassle-free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be turned on.
High-Resolution audio compatible
As well as offering an intense movie experience, the Denon AVR-X3500H is also compatible with High-Resolution Audio. This offers a sound that's far more natural sounding than standard audio. The Denon AVRX3500H supports a wide range of Hi-Res format files including DSD (2.8/5.6MHz), FLAC, ALAC and WAV. It even supports gapless playback for music free from glitches.
Bluetooth, AirPlay 2, DLNA 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 AVR-X3500H also comes with wi-fi, Internet radio and DLNA. Simply connect to your home network via Ethernet or wi-fi and access thousands of Internet radio sites via vTuner as well as subscription services such as Spotify Connect (requires Spotify Premium account). DLNA compatibility lets you stream from other sources such as your laptop or NAS drive.
Get straight to the action, with Quick Select
