Powerful 11 Channel Discrete Amplifier with ECO Mode
The AVC-X6500H features a monolithic power amplifier design with Denon custom made transistors and identical circuit topology on all 11 channels. Each channel is rated at 205 watts and all channels are able to safely drive lower impedance speakers (down to 4 ohms). This ultimate build-quality guarantees best-in-class sound quality with minimum interference, astonishing clarity, power, detail, and depth. Moreover, the 11 channel amplification allows for setting up a full 7.1.4 3D experience without the need of an external amplifier. If not in use for 3D audio the integrated amplifiers can get assigned to drive another pair of speakers in a second audio zone running a different source than the main room. Denon's intelligent ECO mode adjusts power consumption according to signal level, and there's an on-screen Eco Mode display that lets you see in real time how much energy ECO mode is saving.
Advanced Audyssey Room Correction Suite
The AVC-X6500H features the most advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room acoustic measurement system including Audyssey Dynamic Volume, Dynamic EQ, LFC and SubEQ HT. Through these technologies, and with the supplied microphone, it exactly analyses each speaker's output to optimize the overall listening experience. With the additional Audyssey MultEQ Editor App (available for purchase), very advanced users can even go further "under the hood" if desired.
Dolby Atmos Built-In & DTS:X Ready

Dolby Vision transforms the viewing experiences with astonishing brightness, contrast, and colour. HLG offers HDR technology over broadcast content. An advanced video processor upscales existing lower resolution video from any analogue 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.

The app gives you instant multi-room audio control, meaning you can command music in every room from any device: play different music from different sources in every room, group several rooms together and play the same song, perfectly synchronized, in party mode!
Free Control App
With the free Denon AVR Remote app for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire you can control the receiver's operation, as well as accessing its set-up menu, from a smartphone or tablet. The app also gives you quick access to the receiver's status display, option menus, Denon Blu-ray player control, and an online owner's manual for your convenience. Inside the app, you can switch instantly to the HEOS App to access an incredible level of control over your music contents and streaming services, blast full HEOS wireless multi-room control.
High Resolution Audio
The AVC-X6500H features high resolution audio decoding with multiple lossless file types including ALAC, FLAC and WAV at up to 24-bit/196-kHz along with compatibility for 2.8/5.6-MHz DSD files (DSD is the audio coding format of SACD).
AL32 Processing Multi-channel provides ultra-high-resolution digital audio filtering and precision for all audio channels, to deliver a natural soundstage with enhanced imaging. For contents recorded in multi-channel such as Blu-ray discs, the recorded low frequency effects (LFE) may be out of synch and delayed. Bass Sync technology corrects such a delay of low frequency effects for the perfect audio experience.
Best Possible Soundstage
For optimum fidelity and the widest dynamic range with lowest distortion, the AVC-X6500H features advanced reference-class 32-bit AKM AK4458VN D/A converters on all channels. This ensures consistent high fidelity and precise channel matching across all channels for the ultimate listening experience
Smart TV Connectivity
Via the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality in your Smart TV, you may be able to control your Denon AVR with the Smart TV's remote control. With “HDMI control” set to ON on your receiver, you can set “Smart Menu” to ON to start controlling your Denon AVR with your Smart TV's remote. The Smart Menu home screen provides you quick access to source and surround mode selections, the AVR’s setup menu, and 4 Quick Selects.
External Control and IP Control Capabilities
The AVC-X6500H is equipped with a range of features to provide enhanced control capabilities and compatibility with 3rd party and custom integration solutions including Crestron Connected.
It can be set up and operated by a home computer on the network via IP control, either via wired LAN connection or Wi-Fi. For direct connection to external home automation and control equipment, it's also equipped with an RS-232C serial port.
For simpler integrated control set-ups, the AVC-X6500H features an IR (infrared) remote control input on the rear panel, allowing remote control compatibility with other components in your home theatre system
Dual Subwoofer Outputs
With a single subwoofer, optimum placement within the room for the best bass response isn't always possible. Depending on the location, bass response at the main listening position can be uneven with audible peaks and dips. With 2 subwoofers positioned in different locations, response averaging evens out the low bass range for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area
Easy To Setup, Easy To Use
Via Denon’s exclusive Setup Assistant along with the Quick Start guide, you can connect and configure the AVC-X6500H quickly and easily. The Setup Assistant guides you through the process via clear on-screen graphics and text, optimising critical system settings for the best possible sound quality with your particular equipment configuration.
