Rounding out its comprehensive range of connections is an ethernet port, wi-fi antennas and eleven high-quality gold plated speaker binding posts – six of which are assignable.
The box also included an Audyssey microphone, cardboard microphone stand, cable labels, power cord and of course remote control. The included remote control lacks the LCD of its bigger brother and as with other Denon remotes, looks somewhat pedestrian in terms of appearance.
Some of the remote control’s buttons are a little small. However, the upshot of this is that you’re going to find everything you need to control and navigate the AVC-X6500H’s extensive menus directly from the remote.
The overall build quality of the AVC-X6500H was excellent and while there were some similarities between it and the AVC-X8500H, notably the pull-down flap, it doesn’t quite meet the lofty standards of the AVC-X8500H.”
