Denon’s all new AVR4500H av receiver is in stock as of Monday 18th September
Furthermore, the final conclusion says;
Can’t be beaten
“Denon’s AVR-X4500H has more ticks than boxes. Connectivity is first class, there’s more than enough dynamic power on tap to rock your cinematic world, and it sounds consistently spectacular. Throw in HEOS multi-room and the prospect of IMAX certified fun and you’ve an awesome AVR that pound for pound can’t be beaten.”
Home Cinema Choice said;
“Intriguingly, or test sample arrived with a pre-eminent sticker proclaiming the AVR to be IMAX DTS Ready – an IMAX Enhanced firmware update, which unlocks compatibility with the proposed IMAX enhanced standard, is due in February.”
“…the power plant in this receiver is quite something. It pressure-loads a room without even raising a sweat. Sonic steerage is also sensational, as ‘Warcraft’ (Blu-ray) continually attested.”
“Of course, great movie sound isn’t just about carnage and rumble. It’s equally about ambience and subtlety. In the aftermath of the orc battle, flies buzz around carcasses, their travels realistically pirouetting above and behind the listening position, with perfect spatial positioning. This is immersive audio done spectacularly well…..the Atmos (height) channel is often used to carry Ramin Djawadi’s stirring score, delivered here with authority and grace.”
“Multichannel music is intoxicating via this upper-tier Denon, Emerson, Lake & Palmer’s ‘Tocatta’ (‘Brain Salad Surgery’, DVD-Audio) is a frenetic experience, with Carl Palmer’s percussion conducting hit and run attacks from every corner of the soundstage. The AVR delineates these assaults with crisp precision…Detail is laser-etched.”
“Marylyn Manson’s ‘Revelation #12’ (‘Heaven Upside Down’, CD) froths with righteous indignation. The track, featuring exhilarating production by Tyler Bates, is layered around a heavily distorted vocal, but the Denon doesn’t allow this fritzz from infecting the hard rock-rocking downbeat. The analogue presentation even finds air in Manson’s ‘Tattooed in Reverse’ not easily heard. The source may only be 16-bit but you’d be hard pressed to identify it as such.”
“While the AVR-X4500H’s two channel presentation is peerless, it’s difficult to resist running CDs in Dolby Audio or DTS Neural:X, both of which spread the soundstage wide and high. These modes effectively take Manson’s band out of the studio and onto a live stage. It’s like going to a festival without camping.”
