Awards & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid AVR but remote is sub-par I purchased this AVR-X4500H to replace an old Sony Dolby Surround receiver. The support for the new sound formats is awesome, and the sound quality is very good compared to my old Sony and Adcom system. It is at least as good if not better in audio quality and the surround effects are obviously much improved. My only real complaint so far would be the clunky (awkward & ill-proportioned) remote that lacks back-lighting. A few of the top buttons do light up, and the rest are semi-opaque so it would appear that they would light up if there was a bulb in the lower portion of the remote, which apparently there is not. Having spent $1,600.00+ on a receiver and then having to fumble with the buttons in the dark while watching movies, hitting stop on accident instead of pause and having to restart a blu-ray etc, is really not acceptable in this price range and I just don't understand the logic behind such a simple thing that makes the whole system feel cheap. I am now on the hunt for a back-lit universal remote that will give me semi-full functionality of the AVR and other components (Blu-ray, CD, TV). Does Denon have an in-house back-lit remote available that would work with this AVR? Sad to have a negative feeling about such an otherwise great receiver but at the moment I am having some buyer's remorse over this cheap remote.

Q&A

I have 9.1 with 4 height speakers. When I watch a movie with Atmos, AVR set to Movie-Atmos mode, the rear height speakers are inactive, according to the iPhone app. Is this normal?

I currently have an old AVR 3801 that has finally died. I am considering both the AVR X3600H And the x4500h. I like the Dolby virtual height and dts virtual x on the 3600 model.  Which is comparable to my previous receiver. Thx

Asked by: Antonio
Hey Antonio, Both units are great choices to replace your older Denon. However, the AVR-X3600H will be the closest match to your older unit and will make for a great upgrade.

I have a x4400H and every once in awhile a sound from the spurs shuts the system off.  How can this be fixed?  It usually happens during loud action scenes and stuff.  

Asked by: Mitch922
Hey Mitch922, You will need to disconnect your speakers and reconnect them to establish a solid connection. Your issue sounds like you may have a loose connection and when a scene sends out a louder sound it send the unit into a protect mode to not damage the speakers.

I bought this receiver (4500h) and a separate HEOS amp under the idea I could connect it to the HEOS amp to drive surround speakers. I know have learned that is not possible? Can you confirm? Do you have an option to connect surround speakers wirelessly?

Asked by: JABN
Hey Jabn, That is correct you will not be able to use this unit and create a wireless surround sound setup. You will need to look into 3rd party products that are able to create this connection. Please consult with an authorized dealer for recommendations on 3rd party products that can do what you are wishing to do.

What rack mount kit should I use for the AVR-X4500 and how do I put it in 4 Ohm mode for Triad 4 Ohm Speakers?

Asked by: Majcom
Hey Majcom, I am unable to recommend a rack mount kit, I suggest speaking with an installer to help with this. As for changing the impedance, I have included instructions below. Carry out the following settings when using a speaker with an impedance of 4 – 6 Ω/ohms. 1. Press and hold the main unit’s STATUS and ZONE3 SOURCE at the same time for at least 3 seconds. *Until Video Format <NTSC>” appears on the display. 2. Use the UP or DOWN Arrow key on the main unit three times. *Until Sp. Impedance <8ohms>” appears on the display. 3. Use LEFT or RIGHT Arrow key on the main unit to select the impedance. 4. Press the main unit’s ENTER to complete the setting 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 any other concerns you may have.
