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 HESO 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 The best I have seen or heard at this price range I replaced my old Onkyo with the denon Avr-550bt this has proved to be a real improvement all round so easy to setup .The sound is great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound on a budget. I've always known that my aging Denon AVR-1602 wasn't doing the Mission 75 series speakers it was connected to justice so I decided it was time to upgrade to something more modern. Given that both my old and new amps are both budget amps from different eras I didn't really expect the jump in sound quality that this amp delivers. While with my old amp I was always aware or which speaker was doing what and when I find that hooked up to this amp the speakers vanish and the result is you are totally immersed in sound. Yes binding posts are missing as is the ability to bi wire the front channels but it's a budget amp so I can forgive it that. Sound is what really matters and this thing makes speakers that are possibly Missions finest hour sing the way they are supposed to. My old Denon amp never achieved that feat so I'm very happy indeed with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of bang for your buck I bought this as an upgrade from my old Sherwood receiver which died on me. I thought the sound from the Sherwood was good but this is in another league. Great advice from the team in Sheffield who recommend this model. Pretty straight forward to set up using the supplied mic I was fully plumbed in and running within an hour, I’m using it to compliment my Samsung Q9FN HDR TV and UHD Blue Ray player and it makes watching movies a brilliant experience with great all round sound and enough punch and clarity to suit my needs nicely, general TV is also transformed so I am delighted with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value I bought this primarily to upgrade to 4K which my previous Yamaha receiver did not support. First impression is that it offers good value. It’s easy to set up (although the initial setup screens are a bit underwhelming) and the picture quality is a marked improvement (sky q box to Samsung 65 inch 4K tv). Sound quality is good and it appears to have plenty of power in reserve. Build quality is good although no binding posts and the remote feels a bit flimsy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good budget AV Receiver This receiver was purchased to improve the sound quality of a TV system in a bedroom, which it has done extremely well for a budget product. It looks the part (little difference from the top end models), is well built and with decent speakers will offer a good audio experience. Set up function easy to follow too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good, great sound Love the fact this has bluetooth compatability as the rest of the household make good use of this, the depth and range of sound on this is much better than my older Sony amp, I would not hesitate to upgrade in the future to this brand again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Setting up is a nightmare.Hate it! Would not touch Denon again.Does not give freedom to set up manually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great new HDMI AV Amp I saw a great deal on the net as i needed to replace my very old Goodmans amp with a HD HDMI compatible one, within a price budget. So both myself and the wife went in the Newcastle store and had a good look about at the selection of compatible amps, as there were quite a few options. Having spoken to Sam, and discussing our wants / needs and price range, we(meaning the wife) decided on the Denon amp vs a cheaper Toshiba one(which Sam informed us was last year's model). Great advice and knowledge from Sam and a great friendly service he did not push sell us anything other than the 5 year no quibble guarantee, which is refunded should you not make a claim in that time, so that was a no brainer deal. Overall both of us are Very happy with the new amp, loads of power for my 5.2 system and we can use the tv remote to turn it on / off and volume control because of the ARC HDMI cable, so there is no need to use the amp remote, unless you want to switch to another source, such as radio, dvd, bluetooth or flash drive.
