”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 5 out of 5 by from Top amp Great Av receiver sounds epic buy it now you won’t regret it.
Date published: 2020-05-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid performance This Denon receiver replaced an older but comparable Yamaha. I find the soundstage to be smaller but the voicing more natural and controlled. The audio listening formats seem reduced and less intuitive. Overall, for me, the Denon sound edges a win.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Currently sat thinking I’ve made a big mistake. Bought the AVR-X4500H as an upgrade to my Onkyo 626 mainly for Dolby Atmos. To be honest I’m disappointed with the sound and overall experience I’m having with the receiver. I’ve re-run Audyssey twice and received different results.Volume on the Denon seems very low compared to the Onkyo. I think I’ll dig the old receiver out and see what the Audyssey settings it had without Atmos just to see what difference there is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade I bought this to upgrade a 7 year old Yamaha that had suffered a blown channel. After several hours of going through online reviews and unboxing videos I decided to go with the Denon. The improvement in performance of my system was immediate and the enhanced functions on the Denon incl. HEOS are a really bonus. Only small problem is that the forced purchase has now caused me to want to upgrade the TV and subwoofer to get even more benefits out of this amp. Will of cause be using Richer Sounds for these purchases, their service was excellent as usual. Highly Recommended!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Denon AVRX4500 Does everything I want it to do fantastic sound, video and all the connections anyone could ever want
Date published: 2020-02-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound I bought this just over a week ago. It's hard to set up and the instructions are gobledegook, but if you stick with it, it is so worth it. The sound in Dolby atmos is incredible, it's as good as the cinema without the popcorn crunch under your feet. Connections are pretty strait forward and it comes with an easy set up, however that just gets it set up for your room, you have to follow the instructions very carefully to make the best sound use, apart from that I can't fault it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement My ten years old Pioneer SC LX-81 suddenly died on me. Decided to replace with a better equipped “modern” receiver but not prepared to pay for a Pioneer direct replacement. Impressed by the Denon 4500 and Richer Sound reviews I decided to purchase it from RS.;Delivery excellent and easy to set up. The sound is excellent and the Heos system producing music throughout the home.
