Quite bright with my speakers. Could be more musical. iOS app is quite poor connection issues. Guess it is the state of current amps these days more features than sound quality.

Fantastic Sound
Upgraded to a 4K received and wanted to stay with Denon's quality at an affordable price. The AVR-X2500H delivered.

The sound quality especially Dolby Atmos is amazing. The on-screen setup could not be easier. I especially like the stand for the auto speaker setup.

I would definitely recommend this receiver!

Steal of a Deal
I had a 4k receiver previously, which was good - but it lacked in functionality for my 4k Bluray, and PS4 Pro. I gotta say, this receiver will keep us satisfied for a long while. The set up is super easy, and the customization has been great to have. I am blown away by the clarity, as well as the blended mix with Odyssey.

Great job - it's my first Denon, and I would buy again.

Very clean but could be better as a quality issue disappointed me
As I write this review, I am waiting for a replacement unit to arrive. Thanks to the generous review policy of WWS the unit was returned and we are awaiting a replacement. The original receiver was great for about two weeks and then all of a sudden, the center channel started dropping down to a specific low volume for about a minute and then popped back to the original volume and kept repeating this stunt every 30 seconds or so. At first, I thought it might be the T.V. channel we were watching when it first happened and so we tried some other channels. Same thing. Then I tried the phono input, the same thing. Tuner, same. O.K. so ANY manufacturer can have a bad apple or two. As a result, four stars. Please recognize this is a top-quality piece of equipment that sounded stunning and clean. You should know that despite listening to live rock concerts and other brain-frying events, I must get some jewelry stores to turn off their 18khz anti-theft systems because I can still hear that high. This receiver is a little overwhelming at first to set up since there is no manual but rather a PDF online which I find to be a pain and should be included with a unit of this quality. I just happen to like holding a booklet when reading a setup instruction manual. I also wish there was a 3.5 m.m. input jack that my previous audio system offered as an alternate input. This is a minor complaint. While I can't say that I can definitely hear to 20 hz., this unit is CLEAN all the way down to as low as I can hear. What surprised us was the unexpected CRYSTAL CLEAR VIDEO that this unit provided. We happen to be classic movie buffs and WOW watching films like CASABLANCA on DVD was a whole new experience through this DENON. I shoot digital photos at a serious level with lots of hardware and software. This AVR-X2500 H is VERY simple to connect my equipment to and now I can also easily use PHOTOSHOP through my 4K T.V. which means I see things VERY big for corrections. Provided the replacement unit doesn't have problems, I will offer to re-write this review, dated January 11, 2020.

Wow, what an upgrade!
I recently purchased a new 82in UHD TV. After a lengthy install, I was anticipating seeing a great movie in UHD. Guess what? My Yamaha AV receiver was not HDRC 2.2 compliant. So I checked around and found this Denon at a great price. I figured that all I would get was the picture in UHD but damn, the audio surround was profoundly better! Much better lows and the Atmos surround completely blew me away! Still working out the kinks re one remote bliss, but I am completely pleased with this piece of equipment and the purchase process and quickly shipped delivery was excellent.

excellent upgrade
This replaced a Denon AVR-3802 for a 5.1 surround sound system with Sub tied to a high end Sony 4K TV. My main issue in replacing the 3802 was to get better voice clarity in the center channel speaker. I achieved my objective and then some. Pristine sound and definition all around. Tweeking through the Denon IOS AP works great. Adding High Speed HDMI Cables did make a noticeable difference in both video & audio. My only minor complaint is that I am running the receiver @ 65 volume. The next model up (X3500) is the same rated wattage as my old 3802 and the same volume was around 35. Is it worth spending $200 more to go from 65 to 35? I decided NO. Great receiver for $350.

Great Sound, Great Fit
I have limited space for a receiver. My previous Denon died after 14 years of service. The new receiver fits well, provides great sound, and is well interconnected with my phone and other devices.

The surround sound has several settings that lend themselves to almost any situation. It is a great value in mid-fi receivers.
