Audyssey Bronze

Audyssey Bronze is our entry level of support for Audyssey technologies and includes Audyssey MultEQ, Audyssey Dynamic Volume, and Audyssey Dynamic EQ. Audyssey MultEQ calibrates the system for as many as six different seating positions; essentially everyone gets a “good seat”, not just the lucky person sitting directly in front of the display. Its use greatly improves the sound quality of any home theater system. Audyssey Dynamic Volume senses the impending arrival of very loud sounds and automatically reduces the difference between normal and extra-loud programming. Audyssey Dynamic EQ automatically adjusts subwoofer and surround speaker levels for maximum performance at any playback volume.

Audyssey MultEQ for Easy,

Great Sounding Speaker Setup

For quick and easy setup the AVR-E400 features Audyssey MultEQ automatic room acoustic measurement and correction system to provide best tonal balance to your listening environment, along with Audyssey Dynamic EQ and Audyssey Dynamic Volume for thrilling surround sound even at the reduced volume levels.

Easy to Setup

and Easy to Use

Setup is a breeze, thanks to the on-screen graphical display, which combines large, clear text and icons, so you can easily make all necessary adjustments and settings during setup, to quickly and easily optimize the AVR-E400 for your particular speaker setup and source equipment. The exclusive Denon Setup Assistant easily walks you through the whole process.

The Denon easy connect speaker connections on the rear panel are spring loaded and color-coded for quick and easy connection, and the supplied color-coded speaker cable labels ensure correct speaker cable hookup the very first time.

The easy to use remote control features discrete source selection buttons that let you choose your preferred source with the touch of one button (no need to toggle through all the inputs to get to your preferred source component).
