Q&A

Can we connect wireless rear speakers to Denon AVR-S950H as a rear surround speaker to my existing configuration? I dont want to run wires for my rear setup.

Asked by: Vignesh

I have had my system for about 3 weeks now. I am running a 5:1 setup with all new Klipsch speakers. If I try to listen at ~80% + for very long the thing overheats and shuts down. I am thinking of returning it. It should not do this.

Hey Bas1449, Your Ultra-HD TV HDMI inputs will accept 4K (24/30/60Hz), 1080p (30/60Hz), 1080i (60Hz), 720p (30/60Hz), 480p and 480i signals. HDMI inputs 2 & 3 will do 4K (60Hz), while HDMI inputs 1 & 4 will only support 4K (30/24Hz). Please make sure the receiver is plugged into HDMI inputs 2 or 3. I hope this helps if not you can always give us a call to have one of our expert technical support team members assist with this and any other concerns you may have. Thanks, Denon North America

I bought a avr-s950h receiver about a month ago. It constantly turns off after about 10 minutes of use and the power light flashes red. I turn it off and back on again and about 10 minutes later it does it again. Any suggestions?

Output sound to speakers and HDMI at the same time? Can this run my living room TV @ 2160p/7.1 from the main amp(s) and send either the main or second output into an HDMI splitter to go to other rooms in the house over HDMI in 1080p stereo?

I have the AVR-S950 currently configured to 5.1. I would like to add an additional subwoofer but when I go into settings there isn't an option to add a second sub. It asks how many subwoofers do I have, but the only option is 'yes or no.' 

Asked by: Dell26
Hey Dell26, This is normal within the settings once the setting for the subwoofer is set to yes it activates both pre-outs.

Can I output to 7.2 in one room and send music to speakers on my patio at the same time?

Asked by: Duckhawk
Hey Duckhawk, No, this unit is a 7ch receiver so if your main zone has 7.2 it would be utilizing all your speaker ch. I hope this helps if not you can always give us a call to have one of our expert technical support team members assist with this and any other concerns you may have. Thanks, Denon North America
