The Denon AVRX1500 has a 4K/60Hz video pass through and is ready to work with projectors in home theaters. It also has an intelligent ECO mode, which minimizes energy consumption, without reducing the quality of entertainment.
The Denon AVRX1500 review allows me to enjoy its visual appearance. The unit has dimmed black color and matte surface. The aluminum box is very reliable because after falling there were no scratches and dents on it. The lack of ventilation holes produces overheating. 4 high legs guarantee persistence, but at the same time, I can’t find a place to deploy it. The receiver’s display has white letters that are greatly seen at any time of the day or night. The AVRX1500 is rather high (13.3 x 17.1 x 5.9 inches). The remote control looks great, but it’s too light and smells like burnt plastic.
The receiver has Internet radio and can offer a user nearly 56 preset FM/AM stations, which are enough for everyday use and the new music discovering. I truly enjoy the 4K video and very detailed surround sound. The device has a quick response and performs my commands without pauses. I can easily enjoy the Amazon Alexa because this feature greatly recognizes the voice and clearly performs tasks. It is easy to install the HEOS app, and much easier to use it. I like the 3D pass-through feature because it displays the same way as in theaters.
The Denon AVR X1500 has 8 Ohms and works flawlessly with 7.1 Atlantic Technology speaker systems. The receiver performs most modern audio formats. I have an opportunity to watch a movie in one room and listen to the music in another one. Due to the Wi-Fi with a dual-band support 2.4GHz/5GHz, I don’t worry about the network connection stability. The receiver can greatly cooperate with HEOS app even in conditions of overloaded Wi-Fi.
I can enjoy all my old vinyl records and listen to all the detailed moments. Especially I like high notes that are very clean and voiced.
The sound is great, but there is a problem with a high volume. However, sometimes the Denon AVR X1500 stops working and starts a reboot and I can’t even turn the sound on maximum.
Among the great Denon AVRX1500 specs, the device has 6 AV inputs, one of which is placed on the front panel, 6 HDMI inputs, 2 optical digital inputs, and 2 subwoofer outputs. I have no complaints about their work. I definitely like that all the inputs and outputs are signed and I can clearly see their destination.
The on-screen guide explains each operation step by step. The manual has no value because all the information is reflected on the screen. The auto-calibration also is very quick and productive process.
The device has the whole set of the most modern and popular facilities. It surely will be relevant during the next years and greatly perform its task. All the features work without problems and the Alexa greatly simplifies the use of the receiver.
