Audyssey Bronze Built-In
The AVR-E400 features Audyssey Bronze--Denon's entry level of support for Audyssey technologies. It includes Audyssey MultEQ, Audyssey Dynamic Volume, and Audyssey Dynamic EQ.
Audyssey MultEQ calibrates the system for as many as six different seating positions, which means everyone gets a "good seat"--not just the person sitting directly in front of the display. Audyssey MultEQ greatly improves the sound quality of any home theater system.

Easy to Set Up and Easy to Use
Setup is simple, thanks to the on-screen graphical display, which combines large, clear text and icons, so you can easily make adjustments and settings during setup to quickly and easily optimize the AVR-E400 for your particular speaker setup and source equipment. The exclusive Denon Setup Assistant easily walks you through the whole process.
The Denon easy-connect speaker connections on the rear panel are spring loaded and color-coded for quick connection, and the supplied color-coded speaker cable labels ensure correct speaker-cable hookup the very first time.
The easy-to-use remote control features discrete source selection buttons that let you choose your preferred source with the touch of one button, so there's no need to toggle through all the inputs to choose your preferred source component.
High-Power, High-Quality Seven-Channel Power Amplifier Design
A hallmark of Denon's renowned sound quality is the use of identical power-amp circuitry for all channels, including the all-discrete power amplifier output stage design. Rated at a maximum of 185 watts for each of the seven channels, the AVR-E400 provides high power and wide dynamic range with low distortion for a superb surround sound listening experience.

Enjoy Music in Two Different Rooms
You can configure the AVR-E400 for a full 7.1 channel system, or you can choose to have a 5.1 channel system in the main room and connect a pair of stereo speakers that are located in another room. Enjoy immersive surround sound in the main room while others can simultaneously enjoy stereo sound from a different source in the second room.
Six HDMI Inputs with 4K Upscaling
For total system connectivity, the AVR-E400 is equipped with six HDMI inputs, including five on the rear panel and one on the front panel, which let you quickly and easily connect your HDMI-equipped camcorder, game console, or other portable multimedia device.
With HDMI Standby Pass-through, you can enjoy a program from your cable or satellite tuner on your TV without the need to turn the AVR-E400 on, which is ideal for casual viewing of newscasts and other media for which sound quality is not crucial.
Enjoy your iTunes library from your stereo with AirPlay.
Audyssey Dynamic Volume senses the impending arrival of very loud sounds and automatically reduces the difference between normal and extra-loud programming. Additionally, Audyssey Dynamic EQ automatically adjusts subwoofer and surround speaker levels for maximum performance at any playback volume.
