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 would recommend watching The Lord of the Rings trilogy movies with a big home audio system to a friend, because it would help immerse oneself in that world.

  2. Wall-E because the scene with the fire extinguisher in space has very cool effects when heard through surround sound.

  3. I would recommend watching the Super Bowl because you would be able to capture the excitement of the fans.

  4. The Bodyguard. The movie is amazing and the soundtrack is even better. I think this receiver will bring out all the sounds of all the great singers in this movie.

  5. The first sporting event that I would watch would be the next Toronto Raptors game and to have a big home audio system would be amazing because then I could hear the basket swish through the net.

  6. Since Tár is a music movie, and best-picture contender, it would be much better to watch with the stupendous sound provided by the Denon receiver.

  7. The first sporting event that I would watch would be the next Toronto Raptors game and to have a big home audio system would be amazing because then I could hear the basket swish through the net.

  8. The Super Bowl would be much better with a big audio system to enjoy the halftime show and the hard hits!

  9. The Star Wars movies…they are amazing in every aspect and this would show them off to their best advantage.

  10. Lord of the rings for sure for the intense battle scenes and the score. If I could pick shows, Stranger Things. Love that soundtrack.

  11. I would most definitely recommend the latest Dune movie as it’s absolutely immersive with an amazing sound system.

  12. I would recommend that the first movie people should watch with a big audio system is “School or Rock”, what a great sound track. Crank it up!

  13. I would recommend watching Avengers Infinity War and then Avengers Endgame and see if the room starts shaking during the big scenes.

  14. I would recommend watching the Superbowl in HD or 4K but much better with a suped up sound system; mainly because of the music heard from the half time show.

  15. I would definitely recommend any movie that is a musical such as Grease or The Phantom of the Opera (the movie); because, the sound is just truly amazing with a big sound audio system where you can hear dolby effects and definitely the heavy bass.
