Denon AVRX2500: the most powerful amplifiers

Denon AVRX2500

Denon AVRX2500 is a very multipurpose receiver. With the addition of AirPlay 2, the HEOS network technology and the input for connecting a vinyl player, it becomes even more multifunctional. As my Denon AVRX2500 review, I think It is more balanced than most of its competitors, as far as sound is concerned, it is very natural and highly detailed. The AVRX2500 supports a wide range of formats via HDMI, which means you can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video through the receiver. With 95 watts per channel, at 8 ohms, the AVRX2500 enjoys a significant power boost over the smaller Denon models. This makes it the best choice for using in larger rooms at the apartment or with less efficient speakers.
