Atmos AV Receiver With Heos Multiroom - Denon AVR-X1500H
OUR OPINION - In an effort to bring the best possible sound and features only found in Home Cinema products costing much more, Denon have worked their magic in the AVRX1500H meaning you can have a high end cinema performance on a budget.
Not only can you expect 3D audio formats in the form of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, UHD 4K ready HDMI Inputs and 24 bit Hi-Res Audio you will also be treated to the fantastic Multi-Room Audio system provided by Heos ( Hence the 'H' in the model number ) All of these features make the AVRX1500H convenient but what really stands it out from the crowd is the sound processing, dialogue promises to remain clear and distinct even when the bullets are flying in the latest blockbuster movie, effects will be steered with stunning accuracy thanks to the outstanding onboard processors and all of this applies to music sources too. Add to this the superbly accurate Audyssey room correction software and we believe you will be hard pushed to find a receiver with the warmth and clarity of the AVRX1500H.

Make Any Room Sound Amazing With Audyssey
Every listening room has its own characteriscs and acoustical problems. That’s why Denon equipped the AVR-X1500H with the advanced Audyssey MultEQ automatic room acoustic correction system. Via the supplied measuring microphone and mic stand, Audyssey MultEQ measures all the speakers in your home cinema during setup, including the subwoofer, and then generates multiple high precision DSP room acoustic correction filters which together provide smoothest and most natural tonal balance, regardless of the brand or model of the various speakers. Audyssey Dynamic Volume smoothes out annoying jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower levels and still enjoy clear dialogue, music and sound effects. Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides precision tonal tailoring for full range clarity at any listening level.Audyssey MultEQ Editor App
With this comprehensive app, you can harness the power of Audyssey MultEQ to take total control of the way your home cinema sounds. Go ‘under the hood’, view and adjust settings for detailed tuning, customise the sound more precisely to the specific problems in your room, and tailor the sound to your personal preferences. The app is available for purchase from the Apple AppStore and Google Play Store.
