Seriously powerful sound
The Denon AVR-6500H is an 11-channel beast of a receiver with versatile options for surround sound and multi-room music and video. Enjoy your movies in stunning 4K resolution, stream music from different sources, and listen to high-resolution music in any room of your house.
Listen your way
The ‘X6500H’s built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth let you stream music from different sources. A phono input provides a convenient connection for a turntable. This powerful receiver even offers convenient playback of several different high-resolution audio formats through the front-panel USB port or a computer connected to your home network.
Streamline your music with HEOS Built-in
HEOS Built-in technology lets you access all your music — from your personal library, internet radio, and popular streaming services like Pandora®, Spotify®, and TIDAL — through the ‘X6500H.
This receiver can be easily integrated into a wireless multi-room audio system. 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 or Echo Dot to issue voice commands to the ‘X6500H. 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.
Multi-zone music and video
The ‘X6500H’s 11-channel amplifier gives you extra flexibility to expand your system into other rooms of your house, and/or set up an immersive Dolby Atmos or DTS:X surround sound system. In your living room, you can have up to a nine-channel surround sound system, or 7.1.2-channel Atmos system, and you’ll still have two leftover amplifier channels you can reassign to power a set of speakers outdoors or in another room.
If you’re happy using fewer channels in your home theater, this receiver can power speakers in two additional zones. Denon’s All Zone Stereo mode lets you play the same source in sync all around the house. The extra height channels can also be used to bi-amp a pair of compatible front speakers for more powerful sound. A “Zone 2” HDMI output lets you watch video from two separate sources in your living room and a second room.
