The DHT-485XP, with Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro Logic II, and a robust 110 watts per channel, is a versatile A/V receiver
package that includes 6 satellite speakers and a 100W active subwoofer. Since speakers must be carefully selected to bring out
the full sound quality of the recording, DENON has made the job easier by selecting the speakers for you. With Dolby Pro Logic
IIx, the AVR-485 recreates existing Dolby Surround programs and conventional stereo sources such as CD in realistic 6.1-chan-
nel likeness. Just add your DVD player and you'll be ready to fire up your favorite video or music program in full surround

High-Quality Sound Reproduction
• NEW High Resolution 32bit Floating Point DSP
• 96 kHz Processing Circuit
3 Sets of Component Video Inputs
The AVR-485 is equipped with 3 sets of component video inputs and 1set of
monitor outputs. In addition, this model has 3 sets of S-Video inputs.
DENON's Basic Design for High-Quality Sound Reproduction
Power Transformer for High Power Driven
The chassis that supports the large transformer has been
designed to absorb vibration, and the transformer is housed
inside a highly rigid frame to secure it more solidly to the
chassis. In addition, a cushioning material has been placed
around the core of the transformer to minimize interference
on the signal and enable more faithful reproduction of the
original sound. The AVR-485 inherits these low-noise design
from higher-end models, like the highly acclaimed AVR-3805.
Twin Drive Rectifier
DENON's Twin Drive Rectifier design uses two rectifying diodes
in parallel to bring out the maximum potential of the large
transformer. Since the rectifiers recharge the large block
capacitors at low impedance, they are able to supply ample
current to accurately reproduce deep basses as well as sudden
bursts of sound from percussion or other musical instruments.
Large Aluminum Extruded Heatsink
DENON uses large heatsink made of extruded aluminum. They
have been placed in a design that ensures mostly uniform
temperatures throughout the heatsink so that the output
transistors for all channels can be driven under uniform con-
ditions. This in turn ensures that all channels respond with
equal performance to the demands of the audio signals.
Fully Discrete, Equal Power 6 Amplifier Channels, 110 Watts Each
Front 110 W + 110 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.7 % THD)
Center 110 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.7 % THD)
Surround 110 W + 110 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.7 % THD)
Surround Back 110 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.7 % THD)
For optimum Dolby Digital and DTS reproduction, the AVR-485 features high quality,
wideband audio amplification, providing 110 watts power output for each of the 6
main channels. A large capacity power supply which includes a high current power
transformer along with discrete power output devices on all 6 amplifier channels for
highest dynamic range and superb reproduction clarity.
Wide-Range Play Capability for DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD
The power amp circuits of the AVR-485 have been meticulously designed to
reproduce the exceptionally high sound quality with a wide frequency response
from 10 Hz to 100 kHz.
The sound from movie sources recorded in Dolby Digital, DTS or other formats
emphasizes higher frequencies due to a theater’s front speakers being placed
behind the movie screen. If this sound is reproduced in the home theater without
correction, the high-frequency range is too strong. The AVR-485 features a
Cinema Equalizer to correct these high-frequency components so that the sound
is clearer and easier to listen to. (For Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic IIx, and DTS
Personal Memory Plus, for Easy Operation
The AVR-485 includes the Personal Memory Plus function that automatically
remembers the surround mode you last used for each program source, so that you
do not need to select the mode again for that program.
Acclaimed Customization Feature
As with all of DENON’s high-grade A/V receivers, the AVR-485 lets you adjust
speaker configuration, delay times and other parameters so that you can customize
the performance of the AVR-485 to suit your own home theater and enhance
operating ease. The adjustments are easy to make via a dialog format on the
fluorescent display on the front panel. These customized features are then stored,
for each source input and surround mode, in Personal Memory Plus so constant
readjustments are not required.
Multi-Function Preset Memory Remote Controller with Glo-keys
The supplied system remote controller features a large selection of remote control
codes to operate other components in your home theater system, including codes
for selected DENON models, along with remote control codes from other
manufacturers*. The most frequently used buttons are laid out separately for TV,
VCR and DVD, for maximum ease-of-use.
* Some remote control codes may not be available for some products of other manufacturers and
some DENON products.
