Denon AVC-X8500HA


Hello all,

It seems this Denon AVC-X8500HA has a decent HDMI 2.1 which can handle VRR/ALLM and 4k/120Hz....I'm assuming it must had 40gbps on all ports.
I read also here that HA is the new updated model
HDMI 2.1 chips in AVRs and AV processors - transition to 40/48 Gbps, issues with video and graphics features

Has anyone used it with PS5 or Xbox series X and verified if it checks all the boxes? Even with PC, how far can it be pushed in term of color/resolution/refresh-rate ?

I really like to order this but considering the cost i want to be sure its future proof as much as possible. This is a Swedish site but here there is more info compared to Denon about what it supports so i base my info from here + talking to their support. This company is has really skilled people who knows their stuff:

Thanks for any info, help, tips...


And i don't get how many of the HDMI ports are 2.1 (40gbps). On some site i see 1 port is fully 2.1 but which? is this the 8k port or another (like the game port)?
If its just 1 port its really really bad either way for such a expensive receiver.
Then the only option is And personally i will wait before buying a receiver.
