Audyssey Premium Suites of Room Correction Technology

Denon AV receivers use the Audyssey suite of EQ software for simple, accurate set-up and calibration.

This AV receiver supports Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room correction technology. The other supported Audyssey features are Dynamic EQ, and Dynamic Volume.

AL32 Processing Technology

The technology thoroughly suppresses noise associated with D/A conversion to reproduce low-level signals with optimum clarity and bring out all the delicate nuances of the music. AL32 Processing Multi-Channel means the technology is applied on all channels and all input sources.

Dirac Live Upgradability

The interaction between your sound system and the physical layout of your room has a huge impact on sound quality. Dirac Live® Room Correction applies state-of-the-art, patented algorithms to analyze and digitally reduce room impact and enhance speaker performance.

Select Denon AV receivers support Dirac Live Upgradability. You can purchase a Dirac Live license key to unlock the functionality. Visit dirac.com/denon/ for more information. Upgradability will be supported via a future firmware update. Stay tuned!
