Audyssey LFC™ (Low Frequency Containment)link

Audyssey LFC™ solves the problem of low frequency sounds disturbing people in neighboring rooms or apartments. Audyssey LFC™ dynamically monitors the audio content and removes the low frequencies that pass through walls, floors and ceilings. It then applies psychoacoustic processing to restore the perception of low bass for listeners in the room. The result is great sound that no longer disturbs the neighbors.

Discrete subwoofers and Audyssey Sub EQ HT™link

The unit has two subwoofer output capability and can adjust the level and delay for each subwoofer individually.
Audyssey Sub EQ HT™ makes the integration seamless by first compensating for any level and delay differences between the two subwoofers and then applying Audyssey MultEQ® XT32 to both subwoofers together for improved deep bass response and detail.

Denon’s unique high quality playback technology “Denon Link HD” link

This unit is equipped with our exclusive “Denon Link HD” technology. When connected to a Denon disc player that has Denon Link HD, the sound localization becomes more precise, with increased detail and definition. The system works by carrying the critical clock timing signals via the dedicated Denon Link HD connection, minimizing the jitter caused by conventional digital connections. This effect can be applied to an audio source of any media from a Blu-ray Disc player.

This technology enables the playback of 2-channel source audio or 7.1/5.1 multi-channel source audio through a maximum 11.1-channel speakers, achieving an even broader soundstage.


This unit is equipped with an Auro-3D decoder.
With Auro-3D, Front Height (FHL + FHR), Surround Height (SHL + SHR), Center Height (CH/optional) and Top Surround (TS/optional) are added to a conventional 5.1-channel system to achieve a natural and realistic sound field that is three-dimensional and fully immersive.

You will be able to fully enjoy Auro-3D playback if you properly place the speakers for Auro-3D.
