”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

9-channel flexibility

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.

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-X4500H 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.

Support for 4K UHD, HDR10 and HLG
The AVR-X4500H 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-X4500H is also compatible with High-Resolution Audio. This offers a sound that's far more natural sounding than standard audio. The Denon AVRX4500H 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 up all your smartphones, tablets and compatible lap/desktops and stream music wirelessly. The AVR-X4500H 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
With four Quick Select Function buttons you can access not just a regular source quickly but also all its dedicated settings - at the touch of a single button. You can even add your favourite Internet radio station for rapid access to radio.

Audyssey MultEQ XT32 for simple room set-up
Featuring Audyssey's high-end MultEQ XT32 technology, the AVR-X4500H 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does NOT do what it says on the box I brought this receiver to replace a sony I have for 5 years. The main reason I got it was it has 3 HDMI outputs. Since I first received it I have spent a couple of hours on the phone to Denon "Customer support" trying to get all 3 HDMI outputs to work and the person on the other end of the phone talking utter rubbish. In addition I have tried without sucess to contact yourselves for assistance. I am completely disapointed with the product and had your Guildford store been open I would have purchased it there and probably returned it there! I have made many purchases from Richer Sounds and have always been happy, even when the Sony receiver went wrong and it was replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HP Powerful amp, sound quality is superb coupled with the easiest method for configuring speakers that brought a new life to the old Bose Acoustics 5.1 speaker set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very flexible and powerful I was given fantastic service and offered a free upgrade to this following a delay in my order. The Denon AVRX4500 has surpassed my expectations, it is a gorgeous looking device with a large screen on front which is surprisingly useful (can show inputs/sound options at once). Impressively featured and allowed me to upgrade to a 5.4.1 setup and still has the headroom to expand that to 5.4.2 or even 7.4.2 with an extra amp. The settings are vast and it has given me additional features I was lacking in my older amp, such as increased up-scaling abilities for older devices like my Nintendo Wii.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and a sensible price Replaced a Yamaha receiver with the Denon. The model was based on advice from telesales. The sound difference is astonishing. Set up was easy and the audio balancing for the room outstanding. Very happy and would definitely recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent surround sound and easy to setup I had been thinking of replacing my old onkyo receiver for some time and looked around for a suitable device. The Denon unit has everything I need sounds great and was so easy to set up. The channel separation is awesome with incredible detail in the sound. I really can’t fault it but if I was to be picky I have to have the volume setting a touch higher than I did on the onkyo to get the same loudness but there is still plenty left if I were to need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the upgrade Had the Denon 4500 for 2 weeks now and I’m very happy with it. The integration with Alexa works flawlessly. I originally ordered the Denon 3600 but got too anxious and upgraded to this. Paul at Richersounds Middlesbrough were helpful and made upgrading very easy. The only thing that lets it down is no Bluetooth transmitter as in the Denon 3600 but with the extra power and other features made it worth while. I previously had the Denon 2300 and the sound quality on the 4500 is so much better such a more natural soundstage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sounding Receiver and Top Service I am very happy with this receiver, it sounds fantastic and looks great too. After-sales support from Richer Sounds and JP, Watford especially were absolutely top notch! Especially in tough circumstances. Thanks again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Denon 4500h Simply a great receiver, this is my fourth AVR purchase over the last couple of decades and the 4500 simply is brilliant . I don’t have an 8K screen or any 8K content so the new X series range was not of interest to me and Richard sounds provided great value of the 4500 and excellent sales support performance wise this receiver is 2nd to none very flexible multiple zones Bluetooth Atmos everything just simply works brilliantly and I’m extremely pleased with my purchase would I buy again absolutely Simply a great receiver this is my fourth tenant AVR over the last couple of decades and the 4500 simply is brilliant I don’t have an 8K screen or any 8K content so the new X series range was not of interest to me . Richer Sounds provided great value for the 4500 and excellent sales support .And a six warranty...performance wise this receiver is 2nd to none very flexible multiple zones ,Bluetooth, Atmos , everything just simply works brilliantly and I’m extremely pleased with my purchase , would I buy again? ... absolutely One small addition I have made is a Bluetooth transmitter to enable Bluetooth headphones connectivity which works across all three zones but I cannot find fault with any other aspect of this receiver. Unlike the new X 4700 which lacks FM the 4500 offers almost identical performance but maintains FM radio and although doesn’t have 8k I don’t see the relevancy of 8K at this stage as there is little or none 8K content available and you would need an incredibly huge screen to notice the difference between 8K and 4K so for my money the 4500 is the best solution out there well done Denon!
