Richer Sounds exclusive model.

Immerse yourself in cinema-style sound, with the Denon AVRX550BT – the heart of a dazzling home cinema set up.


Truly immersive sound

Soundbars and bases offer a great step-up over your TV’s speakers but they still can’t beat the immersive sound of an AV receiver like this Denon AVR-X550BT. With 5.2 channel 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.

Legendary sound quality
Denon is one of the world’s leading audio companies, so it’s no surprise to find the AVRX550BT sounds so good. At the heart of this Denon AV receiver is discrete, high-current amplification. By using discrete (separate) components rather than an integrated chip (IC), quality components can be used for a more detailed and lower distortion sound. Packing 70 watts per channel, the AVR-X550BT delivers the dynamics your favourite movies deserve.

Dolby Vision, HDR and HLG compatible
With a total of five HDMI inputs, the AVR-X550BT has your system covered. Three of the inputs are compatible with HDCP2.2 protection and advanced formats, including Dolby Vision, HDR and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma). This means you get full compatibility with the latest UHD Blu-ray players and HDR TVs.

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

Bluetooth and app control
With Bluetooth on-board, 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 set-up
The Denon AVR-X550BT is designed to be as user friendly as possible. Once connected to your TV via HDMI, the exclusive Denon Setup Assistant appears on your screen to take you through the set up – step by step. With a supplied microphone, the auto-calibration system adjusts the receiver to your room’s acoustics – no audio engineer required!

Quick Select sound
Sometimes the sound you prefer from your TV is different to that from playing films on your Blu-ray player. Denon have thought of this and provide four Quick Select buttons for just this scenario. Program your ideal audio and EQ settings for each of the four inputs and recall them when you change inputs – at the touch of a button.

Compatible with HEOS Link
Plug in an optional Denon HEOS Link and you’ll be able to turn the AVR-X550BT 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 HEOS app also controls key functions on the receiver.

Bring the sound of the cinema home, with the Denon AVR-X550BT – the perfect introduction to immersive home cinema.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full throttle sounds The Positive: After years of hit-and-miss purchases of soundbars I finally decided to go for hifi separates. For my relatively small living room with no space for rear speakers or the possibility of Atmos speakers in the future I was happy to select this Denon to improve sound from my 50-inch HDR TV. I matched it with Q Acoustics 3020i's and the Q Acoustics centre speaker. The sound, especially speech from centre, is outstanding. When viewing with my Amazon Fire stick the sound quality is terrific with movies etc. When the source is high end sound this Denon really picks up every detail with clarity. Bring on binge nights-in! The Slightly Negative: I think if one has kids - i.e., connecting multiple sources like Playstation, BluRay and more - then the number or HDMI inputs may be a limiting factor. But then you have to jump £200 in price. Also, for larger living rooms, if you want/think to add Atmos speakers in future this AVR will not be right for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value amp Bought this to replace my 20 year old amp. Wanted to benefit from 5.1 whilst streaming from Netflix, Amazon etc so spoke to Richer Sounds about my problem. Followed their advice and bought the Denon AVRX550BT. Swapped it over, powered it up, followed the automatic set up and WOW!! what have I been missing. If you want a good system that doesn’t cost the earth you don’t have to look further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy.sounds great. Very easy setup. Once connected all cables.turn on mp and t.v and follow on screen instructions.really that easy. Sounds clear and crisp. If you want to increase decibels on speakers on amp and fine tune to increase bass and tone to your own setting for volume was very easy to do eady instructions in manuel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Wanted to upgrade my sound bar and with this as my central component achieved a great result. Struggled at first with Samsung Smart controller but having realised this just needed to be configured through my TV to recognise my Virgin Cable box all was good. Improvement in sound quality was no surprise but didn't expect dialogue to be so much crisper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two purchases in a week Needed a budget surround amp and Blu-ray player asap. Easy set up was better than my aging amp which cost four times as much. Service was world class from start to finish

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Sound and Easy Use I bought this AV receiver last week to use with a Projector I also purchased. The sound quality and ease of set up was great straight out of the box. I have not yet used the full surround sound capabilities yet but aim to in the future. Bluetooth connectivity is great bonus for streaming from my phone and the sound is crisp and clear. Great introduction to AV receivers I am impressed.
