Questions

Can the receiver use phono input? If so, how?

Asked by: Rayjay
Hello, A turntable can be used with the AVR-S540BT. As the AVR-S540BT does not have a phono input you will need either a turntable with a built-in phono pre-amp, or an external phono pre-amp to sit between the turntable and one of the analog inputs of the AVR-S540BT. External phono pre-amps are easily found on websites such as Crutchfield or Amazon.

I purchased the OSD Forza 10 outdoor speaker. How do I connect a passive subwoofer to this receiver?

Asked by: Sheed
Hello, To connect a passive sub-woofer to the AVR-S540BT, it would be necessary to purchase a power amplifier. The Passive sub-woofer connects to the power amplifier's speaker outputs. The AVR-S540BT's sub-woofer (LFE) output connects to the power amplifier. To prevent compatibility issues, we recommend contacting your dealer or passive sub-woofer manufacturer for recommendations on which power amplifier to purchase.

hello greetings problem activating hdr

Asked by: Javier2047
Hello, With the AVR-S540BT, HDR is supported and does need to be activated. We recommend using HDMI Version 2.1 (Ultra High Speed) cables from a reputable brand such as Audioquest to allow for a reliable HDR transfer. The HDR feature is only active if the source material is offering is HDR content.
Answered by: Denon Response
Date published: 2024-01-09

Hello, I have problems activating the HDR. I previously had a receiver from another brand and it had a standard or improved 4K option and that's how I activated the HDR when using the home theater and being able to activate HDR mode on PS5 and Xbox series
