DOLBY ATMOS: SOUND IN THE RIGHT PLACE
Immerse yourself in multi-dimensional audio with Dolby Atmos. Enjoy a 7.1.6 or 9.1.4 surround sound speaker system with as many as 6 overhead speakers or Dolby Atmos elevation speakers for the ultimate home theater experience.

DTS:X: 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 favorite movies. The included DTS Neural:X™ gives your movies, games and music a realism unmatched by traditional 5.1 surround sound.

AURO-3D: FEEL THE POWER OF LIFE-LIKE SOUND
Auro-3D provides an immersive surround sound experience thanks to dedicated height and overhead channels, in addition to traditional channels supporting up to a 13.2 configuration. Formatting identifies sound objects individually and projects them to different spaces in your listening environment, creating an immersive, three-dimensional sound stage. Auro-3D will be enabled via a future firmware update at no additional charge.

GEARED UP FOR 4K ULTRA HD
Enjoy ultra-high-definition pictures, even from analog and digital SD sources.

LATEST HDMI SPECS WITH EARC: FUTUREPROOF IN ANY WAY
All eight HDMI inputs (including one on the front) and three HDMI outputs feature HDCP 2.2 compatibility and the latest HDMI specifications, including 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 21:9 video, 3D, and BT.2020 pass-through support. It is even ready for Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) for 3D audio playback through TV apps. The feature will be enabled via a future firmware update.

ADVANCED VIDEO SECTION: BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO LEGACY SOURCES
The AVR-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.

HDR / DOLBY VISION: NEXT GENERATION VIDEO FORMATS
The AVR-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 color. HLG offers HDR technology over broadcast content.

AUDYSSEY MULTEQ XT32
The AVR-X8500H features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction. With the supplied measurement microphone, MultEQ XT32 analyzes each speaker's output (including the subwoofers) at up to eight measurement locations and generates precision digital filters that optimize each channel for the correct frequency and time domain response. Plus, the Audyssey MultEQ Editor app lets you view and adjust settings for detailed tuning and customize the sound more precisely to your room and tastes.

CONNECTIVITY: UNWIRE YOUR SOUND
Featuring Bluetooth and Wi-Fi wireless streaming connectivity, the Denon AVR-X8500H is equipped with an advanced dual antenna transceiver system for robust streaming even in congested urban environments. Plus, with Apple's AirPlay compatibility, you can enjoy listening to your favorite audio content wirelessly from your iOS devices such as an iPhone or iPad.

Built-in HEOS technology lets you enjoy your favorite music in any room of your home for a wireless, whole-home audio experience.

DENON + HEOS APP: EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL
With the "Denon 2016 AVR Remote" app you can control the receiver's operation and even control your connected Denon Blu-ray player. Easily control your music and multi-room streaming within the HEOS app, or use your voice for Amazon Alexa Voice Control.

POWERFUL DSP AUDIO PROCESSING
The AVR-X8500H owns a sophisticated DSP audio processing system that incorporates no less than four powerful high speed fourth generation SHARC DSP processors, which together have a combined continuous processing capability of 10 GFLOPS (10 billion floating point numerical computations per second).

HIGH RESOLUTION AUDIO: 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.

AL32 PROCESSING: 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.

32-BIT D/A CONVERSION: BEST POSSIBLE SOUND STAGE
For optimum fidelity and the widest dynamic range with lowest distortion, the Denon AVR-X8500H features advanced reference-class 32-bit AKM AK4490EQ D/A converters on all channels. Enjoy consistent high-fidelity and precise channel matching across all channels for the ultimate listening experience.

GET THE AMAZING HEOS EXPERIENCE
Enjoy your favorite music from anywhere and everywhere around your home. Share music stored on your home network, streaming services with HEOS wireless speakers or even other HEOS-capable receivers and listen throughout the whole house. Control it all with the free HEOS app. Enjoy music from TuneIn, Internet Radio and a wide range of streaming services including Pandora®, Spotify®, Amazon Prime Music, iHeartRadio, SiriusXM, Soundcloud®, Tidal, Napster or Deezer.
