A great home theatre receiver will make all of your home theatre viewing better. A receiver is a critical component needed for a premium audio experience in the home. Many of us will be watching the big game mid-February (you know what I mean!). Many of us will also be watching the best movies of the previous year in anticipation of the big awards ceremony in March (again, you know what I mean). Wouldn’t it be amazing to have this fantastic Denon receiver delivering the best sound no matter what you are watching. Learn how you can enter for a chance to win.

Why does the sound matter when watching sports

My wife doesn’t follow football, or hockey, or tennis. I blame her parents. I grew up watching all three and still enjoy them all. The bigger the match or closer the game to a championship match, the better. And the game is usually more exciting if every bone crunching hit is audible—loud even.

When the crowd roars, I want to feel the vibration! When the ball hits the crossbar, I want to hear a distinct “ting” resonate as the kicker’s facial expression melts. When my favourite running back breaks a tackle and sprints toward the end-zone, I want to experience each step as if I’m running alongside encouraging him. The game is not the same without great sound.

The television networks put millions of dollars into capturing the audio experience as much as the visual experience. You must put some care and consideration into how you will hear it or you are missing out.

Have you given up on watching movies for their amazing sound

But we are getting used to missing out, aren’t we? I watch many shows on a phone wearing earbuds. It’s not right and I know it. A film like “Knives Out” was not designed to be watched like a mindless TikTok video. Just like you can’t get as immersed in a story on a small screen, you also can’t with earbud audio. You don’t feel the emotional tension of the characters, or the suspense, or especially the magic of the big moment without big audio. No one would visit a movie theatre, despite the big screen experience, if the sound wasn’t also all it can be.

The Denon receiver we are giving away in this contest helps you return to the good ole days of experiencing big sports games, and brilliantly intense movies, with awesome sound. Add some great speakers and suddenly your home is where everyone wants to be for that big sports party or movie night. We sent the prize that we are giving away in this contest to Jason for an honest review. Read his thorough review to learn more about the versatility and capabilities of this device.

  1. I think the super bowl would be great with this home theatre receiver…..I’m hoping it would pretty much make me feel like I was there in the stadium!!

  2. If I had this receiver, the first movie I would watch would be Gladiator. It would sound amazing with big sound!

  3. I believe that any movie, show or sporting event can be greatly enhanced with better quality sound that the Denon home theatre receiver would provide. Imagine watching the Super Bowl, The Last of Us or any blockbuster movie, the experience would be fantastic. Thanks for the opportunity.

  4. Top Gun Maverick has to be seen with this sound system because this system would make it feel like you are in the cockpit.

  5. I would suggest watching the Superbowl with this audio system because it will sound like you are there.

  6. I would recommend The Grand Budapest Hotel to a friend as it has beautiful costumes and a rich sound that would be fantastic with a home theatre. It would be as if one was living in the hotel.

  7. The super bowl and any Formula 1 race. Hearing the sound of the super fast cars as loud and clear as possible would really immerse us and make us feel like they were flying by right in front of our eyes!! Can only imagine how amazing a race would sound!!!

  8. All movies are better with enhanced audio and visuals; so there are no movies that should not be watched with a big home audio system

  9. Have to recommend to a friend how much better the Super Bowl would be with this system – plus watching Interstellar at home, to really appreciate the sound and experience of the film.

  10. i would love to watch the Star War movies series with this DENON home theatre receiver it would make it that much better with a quality sound !

  11. Maverick! So much better with loud volume. The fighting scenes with surround cound would come out full tilt!

  12. I think a great movie to watch having a great audio system would be Bullet Train since it has a lot of action and high speed train so lots of sound effects!

  13. The new Elvis movie would be great to see with a great audio system because of all the great music that you’d be listening to!

  14. If I had this receiver, the first movie I would watch would be the Harry Potter Movies, which would be wonderful to hear the music and sound quality and the first sporting event I would use this for would be an NHL game so we could feel like we were at the game!

  15. I would tell my friends that The Lord of the Rings would be so much better with a high quality audio system because of the high quality of sound used when these movies were made. It would seem like theatre quality!

  16. I would highly recommend Dreamgirls to watch. The music is amazing and putting this on a high end system … the best.

  17. I would recommend The Hobbit and Lord Of The Ring movies as they are cinematically gorgeous with high quality, immersive sound.

  18. I would recommend that everyone watch Top Gun: Maverick on a big home audio system! This movie needs to be seen and heard in the way it was meant to be!

  19. Super Sunday is upon us! If I get this receiver in time, The Super Bowl would be my choice. Failing that, any number of outdoor oriented movies would be on the list. The new Avatar flick, Shape of Water, has to be my choice.

  20. I would recommend to a friend to watch Avatar – Way of Water on a big home audio system to make the most of the immersive experience!

  21. Saving Private Ryan would be better with s big home audio system because it has amazing sound effects that come from all directions

  22. i would recommend watching Bullet train. It would be much better with an awesome audio system because, its one of my favourite movies of the past couple of years, so I’d like to see it more than once; I really like action stuff, so every hit would pop better, the rush of air with the speed of the train would scream out just a bit better…. Heck with my older ears, hearing every bit of speech would be better!!!
