Denon Intros Entry-Tier AVR-X540BT

Denon presents an AV receiver option for the more budget-conscious customer-- the AVR-X540BT, a 4K-ready 5.1-channel model feauturing Bluetooth streaming.

Denon AVRThe AVR-X540BT lacks 3D audio decoding, since it sticks with standard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio support. However it ramps up on the wireless streaming, being able to remember up to 8 paired Bluetooth devices. Such devices can also double as a controller, since the 500 Series Remote app offers functions such as on/off, volume up/down, mute and source selection.

Wired connectivity comes through 5 HDMI inputs, 3 of which support HDCP 2.2 UHD sources such as 4K Blu-ray players and game consoles. A USB port in the front allows playback of MP3, WMA, FLAC and AAC files, and can also charge portable devices. Power output is rated at 130W, with a provision for 2 subwoofers.

Setup is simplified through a graphical Denon Setup Assistant with room correction, while 4 Quick Select function buttons let users choose favourite input sources.
