Easy To Use

With Denon's exclusive on-screen Setup Assistant, along with the supplied Quick Start guide, you can connect and configure your home theater system quickly and easily. The Setup Assistant features clear on-screen graphics and text that optimizes critical system settings for your particular home theater setup.

During the automated setup process, the included measuring microphone determines the right combination of optimum settings to deliver the best possible sound quality from your particular speaker system.

Dual Subwoofer Outputs
