In short, it provides a more immersive, 3D sound experience. Discover these five ways that will allow you to bring your listening experience to the next level.

Great sound brings your house to life. It makes beautiful evenings memorable and pleasant events with friends or family unforgettable. Even a mild enthusiast can be enamoured with the right equipment. From great speakers to solid cabling, and from the best vinyl albums to collector's items on CD. All of this comes into its own with an AV Receiver, which provides a better sound experience through which your speakers and records perform at their very best.

Sound interesting? Discover 5 ways to achieve a better sound experience at home.

Method 1: Listen to music as if you were in the studio yourself

An AV Receiver that supports High Resolution audio makes it possible to listen to music with the best sound quality at home. Hi-Res from sources like Amazon Music HD, Tidal or your local music file collection, can even leave the sound quality of a CD in its wake. Upgrade to feeling your music instead of just hearing it. Experience every detail with crystal clarity with even the most subtle arrangements coming to life. Because with an AVR that supports Hi-Res audio, you can listen to music as if you were in the studio when it was originally recorded.

Method 2: Better sound experience with all streaming services within reach

Do you prefer to listen to certain records on vinyl? Or do you only have the one live recording of that legendary concert on CD? Not a problem with an AVR! With a modern AVR you can also utilise streaming services such as Spotify, Tidal and Soundcloud. So, you'll always have access to your favourite artists' songs at the touch of a button.

Modern Denon AVRs like the Denon AVR-X2600H, support streaming services as standard. Thanks to the HEOS Built-In technology you can also add more compatible products for a multi-room audio experience throughout your home. You can easily arrange this with the free HEOS app.

Method 3: Better sound experience thanks to Room Calibration

Having good speakers is one thing, but setting them properly is another. This can really make or break the immersive sound experience. Denon AVRs help you with this, like our entry level model, the Denon AVR-X1600H. Each Denon AVR includes built-in MultEQ Room Calibration technology by Audyssey. This technology helps you find the best sound setting for your room. That way you can easily ensure a better audio experience, allowing you to hear the subtle nuances in that virtuoso guitar solo, for example.

Method 4: Smartly position your speakers

With a good AVR and top-quality speakers you are well on your way to a better sound experience. But you're not quite there yet. Because, if you place your speakers randomly in your living room, it doesn't immediately optimise the sound right away. Think carefully about where you place your speakers. Especially the placement of front and surround speakers is important. There isn't one best way to do this, because every house (and interior!) is different. Therefore, play around with the positioning of your speakers, place them away from or closer to walls, and put your hearing to the test to make the right adjustments for the best possible performance.

Method 5: Adjust sound settings to your taste

Sound is a matter of taste. For a better sound experience you can therefore experiment with adjusting sound settings. For example, by adjusting the high, medium and low tones differently so that it suits your taste or favourite style of music. Important: do not forget the toe-in for speakers, so that they are well focused on where you listen to your music. For example, faced towards your sofa.
