Features

The Denon AVR-X3500H AV receiver has a seven-channel configuration, power 7 x 105 W (8 Ohms), and supports the latest object-oriented 3D audio formats Dolby Atmos and DTS: X. Based on this unit, you can build a 5.2.2 system with two special high-altitude channels, or an extended 7.2 for traditional surround sound formats. The AV receiver supports all modern network functionality, including the ability to play files on accessible devices and music from online services. Also, the Denon AVR-X3500H has Bluetooth, AirPlay 2 and support for proprietary multimedia technology HEOS.

Design and build

Denon AVR-X3500H is equipped with amplifiers with high-current output stages and, thanks to a powerful power supply unit, is able to fully pump even large floor acoustics. For the sound processing in this model, a 4-core DSP with a high data processing speed, as well as 32-bit AKM DACs in each channel are responsible.

Connectivity

Denon AVR-X3500H has eight HDMI inputs and three HDMI outputs with support for 4K video transmission with all additional technologies (HDR, Dolby Vision, HGL). Also in this model there is a function of signal conversion from analog and digital video sources up to 4K resolution. One of the HDMI inputs is located on the front panel of the Denon AVR-X3500H, which simplifies the quick connection of signal sources. A full set of analog and digital inputs (among which there is also a special input for a vinyl player) will allow you to build a universal system based on the AV receiver for listening to music from various sources.

Setup

The convenience of setting up the surround sound is ensured by the Audyssey MultEQ XT32 auto-calibration system. Using the included microphone, the system measures the acoustic field in the listening room, adjusting it to get the most natural ambient sound.
