    Bought this to go with Klipsch Reference R-15M speakers for a home theater. The setup was pretty easy, even the microphone calibration was easy. I downloaded the android control app. It worked really well and I was able to scream music from my phone pretty easily. I also really liked the fact that the HDMI output from my computer or video player goes into the AVR and then is output from the AVR to the TV or projector. This means, for my computer, the screen size is not constantly changing when I add the projector or not. And there are fewer cables to deal with since I don't have to have a difference type of cable to go from my computer to the projector and then computer to speakers. Very nice.

    If you have a 5.1 system, this is all you need. With ARC (and an ARC compliant TV) you can send the audio back from your smart TV to the receiver so you can watch TV and apps on TV (Netflix, etc) with audio through the receiver. Happy that my smart Samsung TV remote just worked with the receiver to control power and volume with no programming. Automated speaker setup works great.

    Great product with a great price. A nice entry level unit which would fit most user needs. Fits my need. Easy set up and easy to use. I especially like the Bluetooth capability. FM tuning could be a little easier.

    Pros: All I need without a lot I don't need

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Hurray!! Great Sound, through all speakers and at 1/2 the price! I bought a different brand about 10 years ago for more than twice what this gem cost that never sounded half as good. The sound is clear, with brilliant treble, rich midrange- vocals, and great bass.

    Pros: It's the sound quality that I'm ecstatic over. It has a remote that is simple to use and set up.

    Cons: none- well, if I had a phonograph, maybe I would like an input that didn't need a preamp- but I don't have a phonograph, so... I'm just stoked. Thank you, Mahalo, Crutchfield.

    Just a great unit overall. Sounds great. Pass through on stand by was an important feature I wanted on a receiver and the Bluetooth feature made it much better than what I was originally looking for. Very well priced as well. Would definitely recommend this to anyone

    pollo from scottsdale az on 9/26/2017

    This inexpensive Denon fits the bill perfect. I only use 2.1 sound as my living room is very small, that being said, I didn't use the setup microphone, and chose to adjust the sound manually. It took me about an hour to get it the way I like it but.... well worth it. The sound is incredible on my 2.1, I'm sure 5.1 is the same. Easy to install and hook up, Bluetooth works very well and is a nice addition as I'm super old school and is my first Bluetooth product, ya I know. Very happy with this Denon

    Pros: Inexpensive, awesome sound, easy to customize the sound you want

    Cons: The Denon app is worthless, works like a remote that they GIVE you. When you close the app on your phone, it shuts the receiver off....dumb

    Glenn from Ashburn, VA on 9/16/2017

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Amazing receiver. I had a different brand and it never seemed to work quite right. This receiver has online setup for every component displayed on the TV to ensure everything gets hooked up correctly. Crutchfield also provided wire labels so everything could be identified after being unhooked from the old receiver. This was a nice surprise and free and further helped with the changeover. The receiver also came with an omni-directional microphone that balanced all of the channels perfectly. All of my speakers are Klipsch and Polk Audio and the receiver drives them as loud as you would ever want. All hooked up my 70" TV, everyone wants to come here for movie night. I couldn't be happier with my choice.

    Pros: Just about everything.

    Cons: I could not figure out how to just watch the TV without the receiver providing the sound.

    Our receiver failed unexpectedly and needed a replacement with a reasonable cost, some additional HDMI inputs, and a few newer features. This device fit the bill. Easy to install, fast and efficient shipping process from Crutchfield, and back to video games, movies, and now bluetooth music. Very happy with this and would recommend to others

    Pros: HDMI inputs Bluetooth connection

    Cons:

    A very good, low-priced receiver

    Neil from Wayne, NJ on 9/3/2017

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    We got a 4K TV (from Crutchfield) and our low-end Yamaha receiver didn't work with it. So we got this Denon on Crutchfield's recommendation. Because it is a 4K receiver, it works great with the 4K TV. I don't think the sound from our external speakers is any better than it was before (at least I can't tell), which is why I wanted to spend as little money as possible. The Denon filled the bill nicely, and it is more advanced and easier to operate than our 2-year-old Yamaha. If you really can't tell the sound difference from one receiver to another, why pay more?

    Pros: Easy to operate and set up. Very nice sound. Handsome unit with a digital display that tell you what is going on

    Cons: Remote has as many buttons as the cockpit of a 747.. Remote buttons are not illuminated (but , bafflingly, most aren't).

    Robert from Las Vegas, NV on 8/30/2017

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This will be more of a review of Crutchfield's customer service than of the product itself. The receiver works fine, at least the second time around. The first Denon AVR-S530BT I received was defective; the subwoofer preamp out wasn't working. Plugged in the sub and all it did was buzz with a feedback-like hum. I called Crutchfield customer service and they shipped a new one immediately and emailed me a UPS return label. The replacement arrived 2 days later and after verifying it was working correctly I repacked the defective unit, slapped the label on it and dropped it off at the UPS Store. 5 stars for Crutchfield's customer service! As for the Denon AVR-S530BT itself, I haven't had it long enough to have learned every little nuance, but so far it works great and sounds better than the old Sony unit it replaced. Lots more features, too. The auto setup for speaker balance has done a fine job of integrating my 12" Pioneer floor standing speakers with the small center channel and surround speakers left over from my old Sony. The Sony subwoofer had to be replaced with a powered sub, which is an Acoustic Audio 6.5" unit that provides ample bass for both music and those big special effects scenes. I'm only giving it 4 stars out of 5 though because the functions of the various sound fields could be made clearer (if I understand it correctly, the DIRECT setting provides the correct sound field as dictated by the source: Dolby 5.1, DTS, stereo, mono, etc.) and the phone app s

    Pros: Auto setup works great. Clean, powerful sound. Elegant styling.

    Cons: DIRECT setting supposed to automatically give correct sound field to match source, but no indication that's happening. My old Sony displayed the source type; Dolby, DTS, etc. The phone app is pretty much worthless; doesn't really do anything more than the remote, yet not as quickly and easily. What's the point?

    Awesome Budget Receiver

    Charles from Lubbock, TX on 8/28/2017

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I am absolutely satisfied with this receiver. Although it is more budget-friendly and therefore relatively bare-bones feature-wise, this receiver is perfectly suited for my current 3.1 setup. Before purchasing this Denon, I had a 15 year old Kenwood receiver, connected to my 4K LG TV via the TV's optical output. This setup sounded great, but with the old age of the receiver came the inevitable failures: both the center channel output and the subwoofer pre-out died. I made do without HDMI inputs and outputs, bluetooth, or any of the similar modern basics, so for this Denon to have these was great at this price point. This Denon is perfect for my small setup. I live in an apartment, so loudness is not a priority of mine when it comes to my home theater setup. I have three cheap Polk bookshelf speakers, along with a cheap 50W RMS subwoofer. Regardless of the price point of these components, the sound coming from this setup is great for simple TV, Youtube, or Netflix watching. Although I tend not to crank the volume for normal watching, with the finale of Game of Thrones recently, I can say that at 70% volume, the setup gets plenty loud and sounds fantastic. So if you're looking to just get up and running with a simple setup, this Denon will set you on the right path.

    Pros: - Inexpensive. Bought from Crutchfield as an Open Box for an even better deal. - Powers simple setups well. - Bluetooth sounds great and is super easy to connect

    Cons: - Maybe not loud enough for some setups - Volume buttons on remote are a bit sluggish to respond

    Pretty happy with this denon. I came from a older Sony that was a 2009 product so it wasn't 4K capable. This denon was almost night and day with the sound and what it did for me as opposed to the Sony. I can't compare this to any of the newer models since I've never had any but all in all for the price I'm very happy with this unit

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    At first, I made a mistake and ordered a different receiver from another store. It turned out that it would not work properly with my 4K system. Being uneducated, I returned it and reordered and of course the second one did not work. Then I came to Crutchfield and with an adviser's (Mick) help I ordered this Denon AVR-S530BT. Not only did it work perfectly with my 4K system but it is a very nice receiver for the money. I am super happy now. I have purchased many things from Crutchfield over the past 20 years and have always been happy. Why did I stray?

    Pros: Looks and sounds great. Nice features for the money.

    Cons: Small item but would like to be able to rename some of the displays.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Very pleased! OK, I am not a critical audiophile but i am a musician that enjoys many forms of music. Until the last 20 years I could say I enjoy all music. Anyway, I got this to replace my 20+ yr. old Yamaha HTR 5460. I have a pair of Cerwin Vega floor speakers, and run my audio and video/DVD sound through them. I don't have a surround 5.2 or whatever setup though that may change sooner than later. I love FM radio and here we have both a classical and a jazz station that are non commercial (Portland, OR) and I leave it on one of these most of the time. I play my music CD's on my DVD player and input that and switch to DVD to listen, works fine. To show how backwards I am, this is the first amp where I ran the HDMI from my DVD player to the amp and then the 'out' to the TV using the amp HDMI common 'out'. Tuning, great reception and lock on Sound, very nice - I am very pleased here The modes seem to work, at least I hear a difference between them. So you can see I am a very basic user and can only report I am very satisfied with this unit for what I am using it for. Thank you folks for the great pre sale chat, that would have been with Athena. had to ask a friend who does things with a smartphone to do the Bluetooth bit - worked fine!, at least impressed me to see how easy... will help knowing this when having future party's.

    Pros: inexpensive, easy to set up and use without reading instructions, nice sound

    Cons: cant think of anything I don't like.

    Very good performance thus far. Simple to unpack and set up. The shipped unit did not include a user manual, but I was able to access the manual online (instructions could have been clearer). Using the receiver for TV, radio, and bluetooth - the latter is a bonus that our previous receiver did not include. Low cost for the performance and the free shipping (3 day) were strong selling points.

    Pros: Low cost for performance. Free shipping. Easy setup.

    Cons: Lacks user manual (old school), but was available online.

    Excellent unit for the money!! Why pay more!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is a great little unit. Purchased this to replace a 7.2 received when I upgraded to a 4K Samsung. Setup was very easy to follow, I used the HDMI connections for my 4K Samsung TV and Blu-ray DVD everything was seamless. Even linked with my phone. The automatic setup was a big plus setting up my speakers.

    Pros: Great Value Easy set up

    Cons: none

    Simple install, great operation

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great amp for small to medium setup. Love it. I'm having an occasional odd issue with my TWC/Spectrum DVR but very intermittent and there is a recovery process. Bit of a hassle every once in a while.

    Pros: Great price for the system. Simple setup.

    Cons:

    Audio Section

    Discrete Amplification: The Denon AVR-S530BT AV receiver features a powerful Class AB power amplifier section equipped with discrete high current power transistors. This discrete amplifier design delivers optimum realism and stunning dynamic range. By using high current, high power discrete power devices, the amplifier is able to easily drive high quality speakers. The AV receiver's five channel Class AB amplifier is rated at 70-watts (into 8-ohms, at 20-20kHz, with 0.08% THD, driving 2 channels).

    Compatible Digital Audio Formats: The AV receiver supports the following stereo & multichannel digital audio formats through its HDMI jacks and optical/coax digital inputs.

    Digital Audio Connector Audio Signal Type Audio Signal Format
    HDMI 2Ch Linear PCM 2ch, 32-192kHz, 16/20/24-bit
    Multichannel Linear PCM 8ch, 32-192kHz, 16/20/24-bit
    Bitstream Dolby Digital, DTS, DTS 96/24
    High Definition Audio Bitstream Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution, DTS Express
    Optical/Coaxial 2Ch Linear PCM 2ch, 32-96kHz, 16/20/24-bit
    Multichannel Linear PCM 6ch, 32-96Hz, 16/20/24-bit
    Bitstream Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, DTS DTS 96/24
    Note:  Even though the AV receiver will decode 7.1channel surround sound (via HDMI), it will only output 5.1ch surround, because it lacks Surround Back channel speaker outputs.

    Post Decoding Formats: The Denon AV receiver supports Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Pro Logic II (Movie/Music/Game), and DTS Neo: 6 (Music/Cinema) to enhance 2-channel and multichannel decoding formats. The receiver offers the additional Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS NEO:6 audio adjustments.

    • Dolby Pro Logic II Settings: You can adjust the following parameters in Pro Logic II Music modes: Panorama (sends stereo signals to the surround speakers as well as the front speakers for a wraparound effect), Dimension (adjusts the soundfield either towards the front or towards the rear of the room), and Center Width (moves the center channel output completely towards the center speaker or towards the front left and right speakers).
    • Center Image (DTS NEO: 6 Music): This parameter adjusts the front left and right channel output relative to the center channel to make the center channel more or less dominant as necessary.

    Auto Room EQ: During the auto speaker setup process (known as "Auto Room EQ"), the included measuring microphone determines the right combination of optimum settings for the receiver to deliver the best possible sound quality from your particular speaker system and room. You can also choose to manually adjust the AV receiver's speaker settings.

    Other Listening Modes: You can also choose from the one of the following Listening Modes.

    • Stereo Playback: Sound is output from the front left and right speakers, as well as the powered subwoofer. If multichannel signals are input, they are mixed down to 2-channel audio. The tone settings can be adjusted.
    • Virtual Surround: Enjoy surround effects using only the front speakers or set of headphones.
    • Multichannel Stereo: Left and right stereo channels are distributed to all the speakers so that stereo sound can be heard from all directions at any listening position.
    • Direct Mode: The Denon AVR-S530BT offers a Direct Listening Mode which bypass the receiver's tone & DSP processing for higher sound quality performance. Direct Mode provides playback of 2ch or Multichannel audio in its original form, without any surround or tone processing.

    Audio Enhancements: The Denon AVR-S530BT receiver provides various audio enhancements to deliver a high-quality listening experience every time.

    • Bass & Treble: You can independently adjust the system's overall Bass and Treble settings from -6 to +6 dB.
    • Restorer: Compressed audio formats such as MP3, WMA (Windows Media Audio), and MPEG-4 AAC reduce the amount of data by eliminating signal components that are hard for the human ear to hear. The Restorer function generates the signals eliminated upon compression, restoring the sound to conditions near those of the original sound before compression. It also corrects the sense of volume of the bass to obtain richer sound with compressed audio signals.
    • Dynamic Range Compression (DRC): Motion picture soundtracks have tremendous dynamic range (the contrast between very soft and very loud sounds). For listening late at night, or whenever the maximum sound level is lower than usual, Compressing the dynamic range allows you to hear all of the sounds in the soundtrack with reduced dynamic range. DRC works when playing program sources recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS.
    • Night Mode: The Night Mode optimizes sound for late night listening. This function can be set to Low, Mid, High, or Off.
    • Audio Delay: If needed, the audio signal can be manually delayed to match the video signal; adjust from 0-200ms.

    Volume Settings: The AVR-S530BT offers the following volume settings.

    • Volume Scale: You can choose to display an Absolute volume scale (0-98) or Relative volume scale (-79.5 to 18dB).
    • Volume Limit: You can set a maximum volume level of 0, -10, or -20 dB to limit the receiver's total volume output.
    • Power On Level: You can define the volume setting that is active when the power is turned on (0, 1-98, -79 to +18dB, or Last)
    • Mute Level: You can set the amount of attenuation for the audio muting circuit; -40dB or -20dB below current volume, or full mute (sound turned off entirely).
    • Source Level: This function adjusts the playback level of the currently selected input source's audio input. Use this feature if there are differences in the input volume levels between different sources. You can correct the playback level of the audio input from -12 to +12dB.

    Audio Outputs: The Denon AVR-S530BT AV receiver features spring-clip speaker terminals, dual sub outputs, and a front-panel headphone jack.

    • Spring-Clip Speaker Terminals: The receiver has spring-clip terminals for all speaker connections. The spring-clip terminals can accept bare wire and pin connectors. The receiver will accept speaker impedances of 6 to 16-ohm.
    • Dual Sub Outputs: For compatibility with dual subwoofer home theater systems, the AVR-S530BT features two non-discrete subwoofer outputs. With dual subwoofers, which can be placed in different parts of the room, you'll benefit from response averaging, which helps provide smoother and more detailed deep bass, compared to a conventional single subwoofer speaker system. The same signal is output from each sub output.
    • Headphone Jack: When headphones are plugged into the full-size 1/4" jack on the front panel, all the speakers are automatically muted.

    Video Section

    HDMI 2.0a: Featuring five HDMI inputs and one HDMI output, the AVR-S530BT incorporates an advanced video section that features the latest HDMI 2.0a specification, including support for 4K/60 Hz Ultra-HD video, BT.2020 Wide Color Gamut, High Dynamic Range (HDR), & 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, along with support for 3D content. The AVR-S530BT also features HDCP 2.2 compatibility, a requirement for 4K Ultra HD copy-protected content.

    • 4K/60Hz Pass-Through: The AVR-S530BT's HDMI 3-4-5 inputs and monitor output support up to 4K (3840x2160 pixels) video @ 60 frames per second. It will also pass a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p video signals via HDMI. HDMI 1-2 inputs do not support 4K.
    • HDCP 2.2: The HDMI 3-4-5 inputs and monitor output of the Denon AV receiver support HDCP 2.2, which fully complies with the latest copyright protection standard for 4K video transmission. HDMI 1-2 inputs are not HDCP 2.2 compliant.
    • 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: HDMI 3-4-5 inputs and the HDMI monitor output support RGB, YCbCr 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:2:2, and YCbCr 4:2:0 color subsampling (@ 60Hz or 50Hz). With 4:4:4 color subsampling, luminance (brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate; resulting in an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image with more colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail.
    • HDR (High Dynamic Range): HDR provides enhanced picture quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image. HDR reproduces a greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels, creating greater contrast. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth.
    • Wide Color Gamut (BT.2020): The BT.2020 color standard delivers a much wider color gamut and represents about 75% of the total visual color spectrum, while the current Rec. 709 color standard selected as the color space for HDTVs and early generation 4K Ultra HDTVs covers only 35% of the total visual color spectrum.

    Other HDMI Features: The Denon AVR-S530BT AV receiver's HDMI connectivity also offers 3D video pass-through, ARC (Audio Return Channel), Deep Color & x.v.Color support, as well as an auto LipSync function.

    • ARC (Audio Return Channel): This feature of the AVR-S530BT's HDMI monitor output allows audio to be sent from your compatible HDTV to the receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio and video to your HDTV. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to your television.
    • 3D Ready: The AVR-S530BT AV receiver supports 3D video pass-through (720p/1080p only) from connected 3D-compatible Blu-ray, games and broadcast devices to 3D-compatible HDTVs (all 3D components must be connected via HDMI). Special eyewear will be required for viewing 3D content.
    • Deep Color & x.v.Color Support: The AV receiver supports Deep Color and x.v.Color content, which can display a larger color range than standard-definition schemes. The result is a more lifelike, vibrant picture
    • LipSync: This function adjusts the delay between audio and video output. You can do this manually or have the receiver set the LipSync function automatically. When connected to a TV via HDMI the receiver automatically adjusts audio output timing (0-200ms) if the TV supports an automatic LipSync function. You can also manually delay the sound output up to 200ms to synchronize it with the video image.

    HDMI Standby Pass-Through: When the AV receiver is in "Standby" mode and the HDMI Standby Pass-Through function is enabled, both audio/video streams from the receivers HDMI input will be output to your television, via the AV receiver's HDMI monitor output. Once the receiver is turned "On", only video will pass through the monitor output to your TV and the audio is directed to the receiver's speaker outputs.

    • HDMI Input: Selects the HDMI Input for which the HDMI Standby Pass-Through function is enabled.
    • Last: The HDMI Standby-Through function is activated on the input source selected at the time of setting the AV receiver to the "Standby" mode.

    Value and quality. Has features I want at an affordable price. [ Rodney  Aug 16, 2017 ]
    The depth of this receiver was on the low end of the scale, which was important for me. It's very difficult to find smaller receivers, and this was about the best I could do. The price was good, made better by a special offer. It has the connections I need (including a couple of ancient RCA connections). And it has a nice range of current features, including Bluetooth. I'm comfortable with Denon as a brand, and I'm hoping that their quality is what I expect it to be. [ Jay  Aug 13, 2017 ]

    11 questions already asked

    Good morning, Yes, I believe they do and to my untrained ear it sounds like it. Rob [ Rob  Jan 16, 2018 ]
    Probably not. The auto setup determines the optimum crossover and outputs frequencies below that to the subwoofer. The manual states that the crossover (if available) on the physical subwoofer should be set as high as possible - this allows sufficient headroom for the auto setup to make its computations. The manual is available online and explains all of this very well. I like the amp! [ Terry  Jan 15, 2018 ]
    I don't know, I wanted just a stereo system for my home office. However I can tell you that I am not happy with this receiver, it feels like a cheap machine. I recommend spending a little more to get something usable. I also own a Pioneer receiver more or less equivalent to this Denon, a slightly more expensive Pioneer, and a Denon 4300 which is a much more expensive system, so I have some basis for the comparison. [ Richard  Jan 15, 2018 ]
    Yes [ kory  Jan 15, 2018 ]
    Surely you can. Optical inputs don't discriminate - the labels are just suggestions. I have found no way to edit the labels on the display though. [ Terry  Jan 15, 2018 ]
    Sorry, but I don't know. [ Daisy  Jan 14, 2018 ]
    Sorry, don't know answer to that question [ Steven  Jan 14, 2018 ]
    I have mine connected through the smart hub, working fine. You can control the volume of the receiver with the Samsung remote if you have everything configured properly. [ Terry  Jan 15, 2018 ]
    I was asked this question, unfortunately I cannot answer. I do not have Samsung Smart Hub. Mine is hooked up to a Vizeo TV. [ JASON A  Jan 11, 2018 ]
    No experience with Samsung Smart Hub. FWIW It works fine with my old Logitech Harmony One remote. [ William  Jan 10, 2018 ]
    Yes.. I've had no issues so far .. and " Comcast " xfinity drive . .. 6mos old. [ michael  Jan 10, 2018 ]
    Yes! I have connected my 4k TV with HDMI cable and it works seamless. [ Tirumalaimuttu  Nov 14, 2017 ]
    Yes it does [ William  Nov 14, 2017 ]
    Yes, ARC HDMI, look at the back panel [ edward  Nov 13, 2017 ]
    It has 1 HDMI out port at the rear of the unit. [ Wilmer  Nov 13, 2017 ]
    Yes. If you zoom into the pictures provided, you will see an HDMI out port, [ Rolando  Nov 13, 2017 ]
    yes it does. Take a look at the picture on this site of the back panel, it is very informative. One of the things I love about this site, if not clear click on the image to enlarge. A good picture worth a thousand words. [ Jiminey  Nov 13, 2017 ]
    Yes. The receiver supports resolutions up to 4k, and will work with SD or HDTv's. As long as your TV has the right ports (HDMI, Optical Out, or Component Out) it will work [ Charles  Sep 07, 2017 ]
    I am currently using this on abnormal HDTV not a 4K and it is working fine. Hope this information helps you. [ Scott  Sep 07, 2017 ]
    Yes, absolutely. I bought it a month ago and connected to an older plasma TV. Works great and will work with 4K when I am ready to upgrade my tv and other equipment [ Jeremy  Sep 07, 2017 ]
    It absolutely does. [ Jay  Sep 07, 2017 ]
    If TV has hdmi? It will work . [ michael  Sep 07, 2017 ]
    Absolutely. My TV isn't 4K. Zero complaints with this receiver. [ Dave II  Sep 07, 2017 ]
    Yes..this will work on a non 4k tv. [ Danny  Sep 07, 2017 ]
    I have connected to Bose 5/1 surround sound and works fine ... [ michael  Sep 07, 2017 ]
    I only see connections for one set of speakers. [ Robert T.  Aug 31, 2017 ]
    Chuck, I have a fairly sophisticated a/v system that is the one I use for inside the house but I wanted a separate component to run three separate outdoor areas. I knew Denon is a quality product and I didn't need a receiver with tons of power or many fancy features so I bought this model. I solved the problem with a speaker switcher box I had from a previous system but you can buy one new with anywhere from two or three or even up to several speaker outputs. Simply run the speaker output from the Denon to the switcher and run as many sets of remote speakers as you want. I ran an output from my Oppo disc player to the Denon and it also has a great Bluetooth input so I can also play Pandora or any other source from my IPhone. Let me know if you need more Info and hopefully this helps. William V., St. Augustine FL. [ Beverly  Aug 31, 2017 ]
    No EQ, but it does have a crossover. [ Terry  Jan 15, 2018 ]
    No; but I use a separate EQ component [ Michael  Aug 02, 2017 ]
    I am not able to answer this since I had to send it back because it did not fit my needs. You might contact the technical support group. [ Kathy  Aug 01, 2017 ]
    There is a Subwoofer on/off control and a Tone adjustment control which has adjustment for Bass and Treble but there is no equalizer to do frequency adjustment. [ Tirumalaimuttu  Jul 31, 2017 ]
