It has been said by many that Dolby Atmos is quite possibly the biggest breakthrough in sound technology since the surround sound idea was conceived.

By fully immersing the listener in a cocoon of life-like sound, Auro-3D puts you right in the middle of the action. Auro-3D provides an immersive surround sound experience thanks to dedicated height and overhead channels, in addition to the regular channels. The height information, captured in recording or created during the mixing process, is mixed into a standard 5.1 PCM stream that comes with a regular Blu-ray. Moreover, the Auro-3D Engine combines different technologies to guarantee an optimum 3D sound experience generated both natively and from existing audio content. It recognizes mono, stereo, 5.1 surround or an Auro-encoded signal and transforms them into 3D audio.
The Denon AVC X4700 has the platinum version of the industry leading room correction program from Audyssey. Using the included setup microphone the AVCX4700H will take you step by step through this simple setup to adjust parameters to allow for your room acoustics. If you have dual subwoofers ( Our recommendation ) the Audyssey can even calibrate them individually to allow for differences in positioning. Another fantastic feature of XT32 is Dynamic EQ, not everybody wants to listen to their movies at reference level however, when the volume is lowered the drama and surround sound experience may be lost. Dynamic EQ combats this by adjusting levels to ensure that you hear the full experience of the blockbuster movie at any volume. As if that wasn't enough, Denon have also included Audyssey Dynamic Volume which takes out the differences in volume between adverts and soaps meaning you wont be reaching for the remote before the adverts start.
The new AVC-X4700H allows storing of two Audyssey settings as well as switching between the two settings on the fly, giving you freedom to tweak your listening experience for the content or listening environment. This is especially useful if you listen to a lot of your music in stereo as you can simply select the Audyssey preset for hifi listening and back to surround sound when you want to watch a movie.
