”The AVR-X4500H’s talent will surprise few who know Denon’s range of home cinema amplifiers, but that makes it no less impressive.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review. Tested at £1199
With 9.2 channels of generous power, the AVR-X4500H opens up a whole new range of surround sound and multi-room options. Choose between 7.2.2 or 5.2.4 Dolby Atmos speaker configurations with two or four ceiling speakers. Alternatively, stick with 5.2.2 and power a second pair of speakers in another room or bi-amp your main pair of speakers. As your system grows, so the capability of this Denon AVR grows with it.
Powerful SHARC DSP with AL32 Processing Plus for ultra-low distortion
Featuring no fewer than four, high speed, fourth generation SHARC DSP processors, the AVRX4500H has ample processing power to decode the most complex of soundtracks. Denon's AL32 Processing provides ultra-high resolution digital audio filtering and precision tailoring of the main channels to give pin-point precision and the most natural sound possible.
Auro-3D sound sensation
Auro-3D is the latest surround sound sensation to put you at the heart of the action. Using powerful processing, Auro-3D works with any signal - right down to mono - and recreates a three-dimensional sound stage. For the very best effect, use with height and overhead channels and native Auro-3D material for scintillating surround sound.
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 and three-zone sound
The AVR-X4500H 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. With nine channels of power, the AVR-X4500H has the option of running three active music zones – and still offer 5.2 home cinema in the main room. An RS232 socket and twin DC triggers make this receiver ideal for more complex home installation systems.
