SOUND IN THE RIGHT PLACE

 

BE CLOSER TO THE ACTION

DTS:X™ immersive audio places sound where it would occur naturally in space, creating a lifelike, multi-dimensional audio experience in the home. The improved immersion and heightened realism draw you into the world of your favourite movies. The included DTS Neural:X™ gives your movies, games and music a realism unmatched by traditional 5.1 surround sound.

BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO LEGACY SOURCES

The AVC-X8500H boasts an advanced video processor to upscale existing lower resolution video from any analog or digital source to true 4K. With three HDMI outputs, you can even connect a TV and a projector in the main room, while playing back different content on a second zone screen.

NEXT GENERATION VIDEO FORMATS

The Denon AVC-X8500H supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) video format. It is even ready for Dolby Vision and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma). Dolby Vision transforms the viewing experiences with astonishing brightness, contrast, and colour. HLG offers HDR technology over broadcast content.

ENJOY SUPERB AUDIO FIDELITY

Discover the incredible fidelity of high-resolution audio tracks with the ability to decode up to 24-bit/192-kHz ALAC, FLAC and WAV lossless files as well as DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz tracks (the audiophile format of SACD) via the front panel USB port and network sources. Or, listen to other popular file types such as MP3.

UNIQUE DENON AUDIO TECHNOLOGIES

AL32 processing multi-channel provides ultra-high-resolution digital audio filtering and precision for all audio channels, delivering a natural soundstage with enhanced imaging. For content recorded in multi-channel, such as Blu-ray discs, the recorded low frequency effects (LFE) may be out of sync and delayed. Bass Sync technology corrects such a delay of low frequency effects for the perfect audio experience.
