Immerse yourself in cinema-style sound, with the Denon AVRX550BT – the heart of a dazzling home cinema set up.
Truly immersive sound
Soundbars and bases offer a great step-up over your TV’s speakers but they still can’t beat the immersive sound of an AV receiver like this Denon AVR-X550BT. With 5.2 channel Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, you get surround sound that’s pin-sharp in detail and totally enveloping – just like at the cinema.
Legendary sound quality
Denon is one of the world’s leading audio companies, so it’s no surprise to find the AVRX550BT sounds so good. At the heart of this Denon AV receiver is discrete, high-current amplification. By using discrete (separate) components rather than an integrated chip (IC), quality components can be used for a more detailed and lower distortion sound. Packing 70 watts per channel, the AVR-X550BT delivers the dynamics your favourite movies deserve.
Dolby Vision, HDR and HLG compatible
With a total of five HDMI inputs, the AVR-X550BT has your system covered. Three of the inputs are compatible with HDCP2.2 protection and advanced formats, including Dolby Vision, HDR and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma). This means you get full compatibility with the latest UHD Blu-ray players and HDR TVs.
Plug it all in
With its handy USB input at the front, you can connect a media device and playback your music files. Around the back, there are two analogue and two optical digital inputs – ideal for connecting a games console, set-top TV box, CD player and other source.
Bluetooth and app control
With Bluetooth on-board, it's not just cinema sound that's given a boost but music from your smartphone or tablet, too. There's even a dedicated Denon app that makes streaming music from your device to receiver even easier. The app also controls functions such as power on/off, volume, mute and source select.
The Denon AVR-X550BT is designed to be as user friendly as possible. Once connected to your TV via HDMI, the exclusive Denon Setup Assistant appears on your screen to take you through the set up – step by step. With a supplied microphone, the auto-calibration system adjusts the receiver to your room’s acoustics – no audio engineer required!
Quick Select sound
Sometimes the sound you prefer from your TV is different to that from playing films on your Blu-ray player. Denon have thought of this and provide four Quick Select buttons for just this scenario. Program your ideal audio and EQ settings for each of the four inputs and recall them when you change inputs – at the touch of a button.
Compatible with HEOS Link
Plug in an optional Denon HEOS Link and you’ll be able to turn the AVR-X550BT into the heart of your multi-room, music streaming system. The HEOS Link adds features such as Internet Radio plus access to popular music services like Spotify, Deezer and Tidal. The free HEOS app also controls key functions on the receiver.

High quality satellite speakers
The perfect bridge between small but poor-sounding satellite speakers and full-size hi-fi ones, the DX2 satellite speakers are the ideal size for quality home cinema. The two-way design features silk dome tweeters for detailed, super-smooth treble and woven polypropylene woofers for a spacious and dynamic-sounding mid-range. Sealed cabinets mean you’re free to place them close to a wall without compromising the sound quality.
Dedicated centre speaker
Rather than using an identikit fifth speaker for the centre channel, the DX-2 uses a dedicated speaker with the ideal twin woofer layout. This not only sits neatly under your TV but also offers a more spacious sound with vocals. Even when dialogue is set against a riotous soundtrack, the DX-2’s centre speaker makes it easy to follow.
Helping to give this Wharfedale speaker package real clout is a powerful subwoofer. Using a meaty 120 watt amplifier to drive a 20cm bass cone gives the DX-2 not just deep and powerful bass but also agile and dynamic response. Whether you're listening to music or watching films, the DX-2 subwoofer gives the package genuine full scale sound.
Smooth good looks – gloss and leather effect
It’s not just sound quality where the DX-2 scores highly, it’s with style, too. Smoothly curved and solid cabinets are finished in leather effect vinyl with gloss black fronts. The speaker drive units are highlighted with individual grilles – also handy for protecting against prying fingers. Thanks to their compact footprint, the speakers can easily be placed where conventional speakers won’t fit – such as on a mantelpiece or shallow shelf.
