Denon AVR-X4500H 9.2 Channel AV Receiver Review

It remains to be seen whether IMAX Enhanced–one of the big differentiating features of this year’s Denon AVR-X Series offerings–will be one of those essential features or not. It’s just too new, and my experiences with it, while less-than-promising, aren’t conclusive. I guess what I’m saying is that IMAX Enhanced alone isn’t a good reason to upgrade to the AVR-X4500H if you’re already rocking something like last season’s AVR-X4400H.

But if you’re upgrading from something older, the inclusion of IMAX Enhanced–even if you hate the very idea of it–is certainly no reason to overlook this great AVR. It sits right in that enviable Goldilocks Zone of AVRs, striking the right balance between price, performance, and features for most people and most mid-sized rooms. It features plenty of HDMI ins, plenty enough speaker outputs for a full-fledged Atmos/DTS:X system without dipping into channel-overload territory, its HEOS multiroom and streaming audio platform is rock solid in my experience, and its support for advanced control systems is pretty freaking fantastic.”
