AL32 Processing Technology
AL32 Processing, a Denon proprietary analog waveform reproduction technology, supports up to 192 kHz sampling frequency and 32bit expansion on your receiver.

AL32 Processing Multi-Channel means the technology is applied on all channels and all input sources.
Subwoofer outputs & settings
Blanket yourself in evenly distributed, accurate bass. Featuring up to four subwoofer outputs to smooth out low frequencies and provide better dispersion. No audible peaks or dips — just powerful, room- filling bass. Tweak your subwoofer settings to your preference when more than two subwoofers are connected. Select “Standard” if you want evenly distributed bass performance. Select “Directional” if you want more directional bass performance seamlessly integrated into the speaker channel closest to each subwoofer in the room.
Your Denon AV amplifier can work as a perfect AV pre- amplifier with the latest HDMI connectivity. Pre-Amplifier Mode provides a cleaner signal path and more tolerance in clipping level by disconnecting internal amplifiers. Add the flexibility to disconnect select speaker channels so that you can use the AV receiver’s built-in amplification to drive non-critical channels to get a clearer signal path for the channels driven by external amplification.
Dirac Live upgradeability
The interaction between your sound system and the physical layout of your room has a huge impact on sound quality. Dirac Live® Room Correction applies state-of- the-art, patented algorithms to analyze and digitally reduce room impact and enhance speaker performance. Select Denon AV receivers support Dirac Live Upgradability. You can purchase a Dirac Live license key to unlock the functionality. Visit dirac.com/denon/ for more information.
