Denon AVR-X4000 Receiver

The first thing any movie lover needs to start building a home theater is a good surround sound receiver. This Denon AVR-X4000 is a great place to start. The AVR-X4000 is a 7.2-channel receiver, but if you don’t want to use the rear 2 channels, they can be configured to deliver stereo audio to a second room. This unit packs in 125 watts per channel and a ton of theater fun features such as 4K Ultra HD upscaling. Other features include processing via Audyssey DSX and DTS Neo:X, and the option to expand your setup to 9.2 channels using a separate power amp. It also has Audyssey MultEQ XT32 and Audyssey Sub EQ HT Dual subwoofer EQ calibration, seven HDMI inputs, three HDMI outputs and Apple Airplay. Plus now through Nov. 30 if you buy the receiver you can get Denon’s $229 AH-D340 headphones free thrown in.
