Over a century of innovation

Founded in 1910, Denon enables the moments that matter through the relentless pursuit of quality, innovation, and audio performance.


Dolby Atmos

Feel every dimension in Dolby Atmos®. Upgrade your home theater with height speakers to unleash a fully immersive 3D audio experience from Dolby Atmos content. Dolby Surround upmixer engages all speakers to create 3D audio sensation from legacy content. Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization Technology creates the sensation of overhead sound even without height speakers.


HDMI connectivity with ARC/eARC

Supports the latest technology on all HDMI inputs and output. ARC (Audio Return Channel) or eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) makes playing TV audio through your AV receiver simple, with just a single HDMI connection. eARC provides HD and 3D audio transmission such as Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD Master Audio and Dolby Atmos while ARC is limited to conventional 5.1ch audio formats or PCM.


8K/HDCP 2.3

Enjoy pristine 8K picture quality on your 8K TV or projector. Supports both 8K pass-through and 8K upscaling of 4K content. Supports HDCP 2.3, the latest copy protection standard, for peace of mind when streaming copy protected content.


Brilliant color from HDR 10+

Supports HDR (High Dynamic Range), HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), as well as Dynamic HDR and HDR10+ pass-through. HLG offers HDR technology over broadcast content. Both Dynamic HDR and HDR10+ use dynamic metadata to optimize shadows and highlights as screens change.


Dual speaker preset memory

Store two speaker settings and switch between the two settings on the fly, giving you freedom to optimize your listening experience based on the content or listening environment.


Three-source, three zones

The receiver supports three-source, three-zones. You can drive three different zones with three different sources simultaneously, or all with the same source. Use the receiver's internal amplification configurable in the setup, or use zone two and zone three preouts to connect with external amplifiers. One of the HDMI outputs can be used as a second A/V zone. Play your favorite playlists in your living room, kitchen and patio, or you can enjoy your favorite movies or the latest episodes from your favorite TV series with surround sound on your TV while the receiver plays HEOS music in other room.


13.4 channel processing, 11 channel amplification

With external two-channel amplification that can be assigned to either Front Left and Right, or a pair of height channels, you can setup a 13 channel speaker configuration such as 7.1.6 or 9.1.4, allowing you even more flexibility and elevated immersive audio experience.


Subwoofer outputs and settings

Immerse yourself in evenly distributed, accurate bass. Featuring up to four subwoofer outputs to smooth out low frequencies and provide better dispersion. No audible peaks or dips—just powerful, room-filling bass. Tweak your subwoofer settings to your preference when more than two subwoofers are connected. Select "Standard" if you want evenly distributed bass performance. Select "Directional" if you want more directional bass performance seamlessly integrated into the speaker channel closest to each subwoofer in the room.


Pre Amplifier Mode

Your Denon AV amplifier can work as a perfect AV preamplifier with the latest HDMI connectivity. Pre Amplifier Mode provides a cleaner signal path and more tolerance in clipping level by disconnecting internal amplifiers. Add the flexibility to disconnect select speaker channels so that you can use the AV receiver's built-in amplification to drive non-critical channels to get a clearer signal path for the channels driven by external amplification.
