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.

Win a Denon home theatre receiver Rules and Regulations
I would definitely watch Top Gun
“If I had this receiver, the first movie I would watch would be Top Gun Maverick…” and/or “the first sporting event I would use this for would be a great hockey game….”
I love super loud movies with a receiver you can feel the vibe as you watch!
Avatar 2; because of the immersive sound!
I would watch Top Gun hat would be amazing
I love action movies and I would use when they start streaming Avatar 2
I would recommend to a friend to watch a =the Stanley Cup Playoffs because with the superior sound system it would make you feel like you were right there at the game
Sunday football would never be the same again with this sound system! The sound quality would surely drown out the sounds of everyone fighting over their favourite teams!
i would recommend to a friend to watch a hockey game with this receiver and if I had this receiver the first movie would be Avatar.
I’d say Top Gun Maverick. My wife and I watched top gun Maverick on our current surround sound system which sounded good but not great. I have a 15-year-old Yamaha receiver that is in dire need of an upgrade. I have high-end paradigm speakers, a high-end Sony 4K TV and a ps5. I am missing the receiver to maximize the experience.
Watching a game would be great.
Can’t go wrong watching Top Gun Maverick
If I had this receiver, the first movie I would watch would be Jurassic Park with the family because the audio would create an immersive and immediate experience and …the first sporting event I would use this for would be figure skating for the ice impacts and music, the sensation would be endless.
When the Blue Jays make the playoffs you really need a good sound system because the crowd gets SO loud!
Anything and everything from Marvel ! Specifically the Avengers movies – this system would totally up the anti !
I would recommend watching the Super Bowl so they would hear every little crunch during the game.
Would love to watch Avatar
Watching Avatar would be great.
I would love to watch the Super bowl and the Stanley Cup with this
I would recommend that my friend watch Avatar because of the sound quality
I’d recommend watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy for the immersive soundtrack
If I had this receiver, the first sporting event I would use this for would be the Super Bowl. The halftime show would be spectacular.
“If I had this receiver, the first movie I would watch would be AVATAR …” and the first sporting event I would use this for would be any Soccer game
the first sporting event I would use this for would be ….100% UFC!!!!! It would be just as good as being cageside!
If I had this receiver, the first movie I would watch would be Avatar because the sound would add to the overall viewing experience at home along with the Super Bowl.
Saving Private Ryan would be much better with a big home audio system. The movie is great to watch, but the sound is so much better with a great audio system.
I would watch avatar
I would recommend Top Gun: Maverick to a friend that would sound so much better on a bit home stereo system, because of all the special affects put into a blockbuster movie like that, not to mention the LFE content that would be simply missing on a small system. PLUS the proper DTS decoding. What a great receiver to do just that!
Top Gun and a Leonard Cohen concert
Top Gun would be amazing
I would recommend they watch the Oilers in the playoffs! Nothing beats the sound of a big home audio system!
Watching the new Top Gun movie would be killer with this system.
Top Gun would be amazing with this audio system!
Would love to watch Superbowl on such an amazing home theatre
Last Avatar on this receiver should be a major upgrade at my sister place. She only have the TV speakers right now, so it should make a little difference!!!
I would recommend that a friend watch the Superbowl, to be immersed in the experience, especially the halftime show.
If I had this receiver, the first movie I would watch would be any movies with a Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack, like Dune or Interstellar. It would add a lot of depth.
I would recommend that my friend watch Avatar because of the sound quality.
I would recommend to a friend to watch the Super Bowl because it would be more immersive being able to hear all the sounds and make it feel like you were there.
The superbowl would be great to watch and the enhanced sound would allow you to hear every little thing happening in the game.
Jurassic Park would be much better with a nice big home audio system. The experience would match watching in a theater!
The World Series. Sound through a good home theater system, would provide a more immersive experience.
I think Top Gun Maverick would be better with this home audio system
I would recomment watching the Super Bowl or Mad Max: Fury Road for sound quality.
A home audio system would make movies such as Interstellar and Inception so much better in terms of experience from the better sound quality.
Top Gun see the G’s, hear the G’s, feel those G’s!
The new Avatar is definitely what I’d recommend! You need quality sound for a movie like that.
Would watch Top Gun Maverick .
I would watch Jaws and the first sporting event I would use this for would be the Super Bowl
If I had this receiver I would watch Jaws and the first sporting event I would use this for would be the Super Bowl
If I had this receiver, the first movie I would watch would be Jaws and the first sporting event I would use this for would be the Super Bowl
