Packed with value and a whole lotta fun
The Denon AVR-1600H offers an impressive roster of features, especially considering its price tag. Use it to power a 5.1.2 Atmos or DTS:X™ system with overhead special effects. Or go with a traditional 5.1-channel surround sound setup, and use the extra two channels for music in your kitchen or bedroom.
At 80 watts per channel, the ‘X1600H pairs nicely with most bookshelf, in-wall, and in-ceiling speakers. It’s a great choice if you’re powering a home theater in a small- to medium-sized room.
Enjoy music your way
If you’re like me, you’ll use your new receiver to play music in addition to watching movies. The ‘X1600H lets you stream tunes from your phone or tablet through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and even Apple AirPlay 2.
Love spinning vinyl? This receiver has a built-in phono input for your turntable. And if you’ve carefully curated an awesome music library, you can play high-resolution tracks from a USB drive or networked computer.
Expand your system with HEOS Built-in
HEOS Built-in technology lets you access all of your music — from your personal library, internet radio, and popular streaming services like Pandora®, Spotify®, and TIDAL — through the ‘X1600H.
This receiver can be easily integrated into a wireless multi-room audio system as well. Stream music to HEOS wireless speakers and components in different rooms, and control each room’s sound independently with the free HEOS app.
The app lets you control playback, browse music sources, and select which rooms you want to use. Play the same music throughout your home, or listen to something different in each room.
Just ask Alexa…
The HEOS Home Entertainment skill for Amazon Alexa lets you use your Echo devices to issue voice commands to the AVR-X1600H. You can easily switch inputs and control volume and playback on the receiver and other HEOS enabled devices.
Alexa can also help you search for music and stream different content to different rooms in your multi-room HEOS system.
…or your Google Assistant
The ‘X1600H is also compatible with Google Assistant-enabled devices. Launch a song in the HEOS app, and then ask your Google Home or Google Pixel phone to change volume, play, pause, skip tracks, and more.
