7-Channel Power Amplifier Design
Denon uses identical power amp circuitry for all channels, including their all-discrete power amplifier output stage design. Rated at a maximum of 185W for each of the seven channels, the AVR-E400 provides high power and wide dynamic range with low distortion.
Listen to Music In Two Different Rooms
You can configure the AVR-E400 for a full 7.1 channel system, or you can choose to have a 5.1 channel system in the main room and connect a pair of stereo speakers that are located in another room. You will still be able to enjoy rich surround sound in the main room, while at the same time others can enjoy stereo sound from a different source in the second room.
Six HDMI Inputs with 1080p, 4K & 3D Pass-Through
The AVR-E400 is equipped with six HDMI inputs, including five on the rear panel and one on the front panel, which lets you quickly and easily connect your HDMI-equipped camcorder, smartphone or other portable multimedia device. Plus, with HDMI standby pass-through, you can enjoy a program from your cable or satellite tuner on your TV without the need to turn the AVR-E400 on, which is ideal for casual viewing. HDMI also supports 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) and 3D pass-through, Audio Return Channel, Deep Color, x.v.Color, Auto Lipsync and HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronics Control)
Video Processor with SD-to-HD & 4K Upconversion

Audyssey MultEQ, Audyssey Dynamic EQ & Audyssey Dynamic Volume
