Denon AVR-X2500H 4K AV Receiver / Home Cinema Amplifier with Atmos
Amazon Alexa voice control
Controlling a sophisticated AV receiver like this can be baffling for some members of the family, which is why Denon have made it compatible with Amazon Alexa. Simply download the HEOS Home Entertainment Skill app and then just ask Alexa. Adjust the volume, switch inputs and with other components attached, change the track – all by just asking Alexa.
Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and DTS Virtual:X for immersive sound
Dolby Atmos uses ceiling or upwards firing speakers to produce a multi-dimensional, immersive sound that's a match for the finest cinemas. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. This highly sophisticated processor renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. If extra ceiling or upwards firing speakers are impractical then try DTS Virtual:X. This gives a good impression of extra height without the extra speakers.
With 95 watts per channel, at 8 ohms, the AVRX2500H enjoys a significant power boost over the smaller Denon models. This makes it a better choice for using in larger rooms or with less efficient speakers. Pure Direct circuitry and high grade audio components also mark the AVRX2500H out as a discerning choice for music lovers, as it sounds more precise and life-like.
As well as offering an immersive movie experience, the Denon AVR-X2500H is also compatible with High-Resolution Audio. This offers a sound that's far more natural sounding than standard audio. The Denon AVRX2500H supports a wide range of Hi-Res format files including DSD (2.8/5.6MHz), FLAC, ALAC and WAV. It even supports gapless playback for music free from glitches.
HEOS – multi-room magic
HEOS multi-room music systems connect together by dual-band Wi-Fi, making them easy to set up with your existing home network. Up to 32 HEOS units can be set up at one time, ensuring even the largest of homes are covered for multi-room music. With HEOS already built-in, the AVRX2500H is ready to go as a single ‘zone’ without any further adaptors!
HEOS app control
Once you’ve set up your HEOS speaker system, you can stream music effortlessly via the dedicated HEOS app. Available for Apple iOS and Android, the app not only lets you stream your stored music but also Internet radio services and popular streaming services such as Spotify, Tidal, Napster and Deezer.
Support for 4K UHD, HDR10 and HLG
The AVRX2500H supports a wide range of formats via HDMI, which means you can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video through the receiver. All of the eight HDMI inputs and twin outputs support HDR10, HLG and BT.2020 pass-through. The HDMI sockets allow 4K pass-through, for hassle-free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be turned on.
Bluetooth, AirPlay, DLNA and built-in wi-fi for the complete networking experience
With both Bluetooth and AirPlay connectivity it's easy to connect up all your smartphones, tablets and compatible lap/desktops and stream music wirelessly. The AVRX2500H also comes with Wi-Fi, Internet radio and DLNA. Simply connect to your home network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi and access thousands of Internet radio sites via vTuner as well as subscription services such as Spotify Connect. DLNA compatibility lets you stream from other sources such as your laptop or NAS drive.
Plug it all in – including your record deck
With four audio inputs plus a dedicated MM phono input, the AVR-X2500 can proudly sit at the centre of your hi-fi system. In terms of video, the AVR-X2500H comes with twin HDMI outputs - ideal for running both a TV and projector. With its handy USB input at the front, you can connect your media device and playback digital media files. If you don’t require an Atmos or 7-channel output, you can instead assign the speaker outputs to another set of speakers – perfect for quality music in a second room. For added flexibility, the AVRX2500H also features a passive Zone 2 output – ideal for adding active speakers in another room.
Quick Select for user-friendly tuning
With four Quick Select Function buttons, you can access not just a regular source quickly but also all its dedicated settings - at the touch of a single button. You can even add your favourite Internet radio station for rapid access to radio.
Audyssey MultEQ XT for simple room set-up
Featuring Audyssey's MultEQ XT technology, the AVRX2500H adapts itself to your room’s acoustics. The XT version of this automatic measuring and set-up device features extra modes and offers the option to measure from eight points for super-accurate room measuring. If you want to take this even further, purchase the MultEQ Editor App (at additional cost) and you’ll access to advanced user settings.
