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 70 watts 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 and uncomplicated controls and remote I recently bought the Denon AVRX540BT AV receiver as my Pioneer had finally died after several years of use. The Denon is brilliant. It has 5 hdmi inputs which served my purpose perfectly. The controls and remote are nicely uncomplicated and with the added bonus of Bluetooth this receiver is brilliant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Denon AVRX540BT - Great Sound! I went for this as it was in my price range, I'm no audiophile I just like to hear the 5.1 surround sound broadcast via Sky, BT, BBC, etc. Denon say it's 'Entry-class' and, surprisingly to me, there are no network features, and so no Airplay. There's no Spotify or Apple Music unless you connect via Bluetooth, which to be fair works well and is easy to use. The sound is great, speakers connect via spring-clip connectors, it was dead easy to setup, and as I have the TV loaded with all my other devices (PS4, Firestick) there's really no messing. There are loads of options to get the sound just how you like it and it comes with a mic to complete a first pass at setting up the best audio for your room and you can fine tune from there. Before this I had a Sony STR-DN840 which was the same price and network enabled, but it broke and I looked for something in the same price area as this was no longer available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product at a budget price. Purchased this from the Oxford store to replace a 7 year old onkyo which didn't support 4k. The staff were great, extremely helpful and polite. Highly recommend this store. I'm extremely impressed with it. Although not quite as powerful as the onkyo it still manages to deliver a nice sound at all volumes we like. The ability to adjust the volume between sources is good as it means you're not leaping for the volume when you forget the blu-ray is a much louder source than sky for example. Not used the Bluetooth or radio features as not really got any use for them. It has all the toys I expect at this price though. My only real criticism is that the ui looks like it's been designed by a five year old on an 80s BBC micro. It is so unrefined it's unreal. Also the lack of on screen volume indication (or an option for would be better) is a petty let down. I know it's not a top end receiver but I'm sure having this bit sorted wouldn't be a huge strain on denons pocket. Overall it's a very good amp at an affordable price. If you want better sound than tv speakers and sound bars without the bank manager calling you, won't go far wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and incredible sound. Very impressed with room mic which makes setting this up a breeze. The sound is excellent and with the aid of the room mic, right first time. Class as expected from Denon. First ratr service from Richer once again.
