- S550BT - MSRP $299, 5.2 CH, 70W, HDMI In/Out (5/1) - avail April
This is a 5CH AVR which features Bluetooth, but is not a networking model.
Firmware updates would be installed via the USB jack. It includes a mic
for a basic (ie. non-Audyssey) single position speaker/sub calibration.
It can display the GUI over 2D/3D video sources input to HDMI1 and HDMI2
and pass through 4k/60Hz video from HDMI3/HDMI4/HDMI5. It can use the
“Denon 500 Series Remote” Bluetooth remote app. Dolby Vision + HLG.

Upgrading from the S550BT provides all HDMI inputs as 4k/HDCP 2.3 capable,

and an on board Denon HEOS module (allows streaming of HEOS app music
services to the AVR as well as streaming PCM 2.0 source from the AVR
to HEOS wireless speakers set up around the home). Firmware updates
are installed via a network connection or USB. There are no Zone 2
pre-outs. No noticeable difference in power; however, this is the
lowest model with Audyssey so audio quality should be improved
after running Audyssey. PHONO input. Dolby Vision + HLG + ALLM.

no further expansion beyond 7CH (ie. 7.1 or 5.1.2)
processing using an external amp). No noticeable difference
in power, but much better audio quality using the much
more advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT32 and Sub EQ HT
(when using 2 subs; independent sub level/delay).
The Audyssey Low Frequency Containment (LFC) feature
which helps to reduce the impact of lower frequency waves
passing through walls (great when watching at night with
others asleep nearby or if living in an apartment with thin walls).
