Step up to the Denon AVRX540BT and enjoy true surround sound – just like at the cinema!

True surround sound

Soundbars and bases offer a great improvement in sound over your TV’s speakers. All but the most expensive, however, can’t deliver the totally immersive sound that you get from a 5.1 home cinema receiver like the Denon AVR-X540BT. With Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, you get surround sound that’s pin-sharp in detail and totally enveloping – just like at the cinema.

Top quality sound
As you'd expect from one of the world's leading hi-fi companies, the AVR-X540BT has been designed with sound quality as a priority. At the heart of this Denon AV receiver is fully discrete amplification. By using discrete (separate) components rather than a single chip, quality components can be used for a more detailed, low noise sound quality. With 75watts for each channel, the AVRX540BT has plenty of power for even the most intense action movies.

Optimised for 4K UHD and HDR
The AVR-X540BT features flexible HDMI connectivity. It has a total of five HDMI inputs, three of which are compatible with advanced formats. These three inputs support HDR, BT.2020, Wide Colour Gamut and HDCP2.2 which means you can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video in the highest quality.

Flexible inputs, including USB
With its handy USB input at the front, you can connect up your media device and playback digital media files. Around the back there are two analogue and two optical digital inputs – ideal for connecting up a games console, set-top box, CD player and other source.

Connect up with Bluetooth and Denon’s app
Thanks to built-in Bluetooth, it's not just cinema sound that's given a boost but music from your smartphone or tablet, too. There's even a dedicated Denon app that makes streaming music from your device to receiver even easier. The app also controls functions such as power on/off, volume, mute and source select.

Easy to set-up and use
Connecting up an AV receiver for the first time can be a daunting experience; but not with the Denon AVRX540BT. All the inputs at the rear are clearly labelled and easy to locate. Once wired up, the Setup Assistant via onscreen display makes the final steps easy to complete. A speaker calibration microphone is included and means you get the very best sound possible with the least hassle.

Compatible with HEOS Link
Plug in an optional Denon HEOS Link and you’ll be able to turn the AVR-X540BT into the heart of your multi-room, music streaming system. The HEOS Link adds features such as Internet Radio plus access to popular music services like Spotify, Deezer and Tidal. The free HESO app also controls certain functions on the receiver.

Sit back with your popcorn and enjoy cinema sound exactly as it should be, with the Denon AVRX540BT.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, great features Very good choice to replace a much loved but aged and outdated 5.1 receiver. Sound is clearly better which I didn't expect and it was very easy to set up with HDMI cables being much simpler than the former RCA + optical arrangement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Denon AV Remarkable kit After some advice from Richard Sounds in Stockport, I decided on the Denon AVRX540BT. Was nice and easy to install and plug into my existing speakers. The auto setup of the speakers was great as a mic detected the speaker locations and set the sound up. I've gone through the options and all of them work great, but also gives me the option to expand the capabilities of my setup further for the future. Overall happy with the kit and would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Performance Straightfoward audio focused amp Upgraded from a non 4k compatible pioneer amp and this has been a great buy. Good all round sound balance, punchy when needed. Only downside is spring clip speaker terminals. 2 Sub outputs is a bit of a gimmick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many extras Got it for a few weeks now and absolutely loving it! Got only 2 speakers connected so far but will upgrade in the near future. Really smart, lots of connections, Bluetooth which is handy, auto on/off and many other options that I am not using. Overall great amp, plenty of power, never turned to maximum yet)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds good, very happy with it. Denon AVRX540BT sounds great, so top marks there. I use it currently as a 2.1 system. The set up procedure asks how many (and which) speakers are connected, and then performs an esoteric shamanic ceremony to determine the sonic characteristics of the attached speakers and the room it is in via the set-up microphone which is included in the the box. I was genuinely impressed with this touch, and it seems to work, too. Switching between the room EQ setting on and off, there is a noticeable positive difference with the setting on. The Bluetooth feature is something I thought would be fairly worthless, but has actually been very handy. It is my first experience with Bluetooth audio playback (mainly podcasts and the like) and it was very easy to set up and is very easy to use subsequently. Trivial disappointments: 1. USB playback feature doesn't work, no matter how the USB key I use is formatted, it is not recognised. 2. No DAB radio, which is a shame because I like the extra stations available on DAB, principally 6 Music and 4 Extra. Not all my listening is "serious music" listening or movies, and it is nice to have background noise and radio plays on. We'll just have to hope the BBC put 6 Music and 4 Extra on AM radio, which thankfully this unit has. The year is currently 2017. 3. Bit saddened by some of the marketing waffle thrown at me by the salesman, Richer Sounds should be above all that rubbish.
