Denon AVR-X8500HA 13.2CH 8K AV Receiver Unboxing Overview

Denon’s AVR-X8500HA is the most technologically advanced receiver the venerable company has ever built. It is arguably the most advanced AVR available today. It boasts 150 watts/ch and tips the scale at 51lbs+ with a serious power supply to power all 13 channels.

The HA version has many upgrades over the original 8500H we reviewed a few years ago, including: HDMI 2.1 functionality, DTSX Pro and IMAX Enhanced Supported speaker configurations and more. Theo Nicolakis takes us on an unboxing tour of this impressive AVR to share his initial thoughts as well as what’s to come when integrated into his theater system.
