Key Features

  • Compressed Audio Restorer converts compressed music into rich sound
  • Power amps with discrete circuits for high-quality surround sound
  • Four HDMI inputs, including one on the front to connect mobile devices
  • Intuitive GUI with large, legible characters
  • BassTrac circuitry delivers deep, tight bass response
  • Includes four satellite speakers, one center speaker, and one subwoofer
  • Two-year warranty


  • Discrete Circuitry for Powerful Surround Sound
    Each of the AVR-1513's five 75-watt channels is powered by its own discrete circuit. This allows the receiver to reproduce original sound more faithfully than conventional models, which use integrated circuits.
  • Play Compressed Files with Rich Sound Quality
    Thanks to Denon's Compressed Audio Restorer, you can connect your portable audio player to the stereo mini jack on the AVR-1513's front panel and enjoy music from your player in beautiful, rich sound quality. This technology restores compressed music sources to their original, pre-compressed quality to give you a lively sonic ambience with greater detail and depth.
  • Create a 3D Home Theater System
    The AVR-1613 features 3D pass-through technology. By connecting a 3D Blu-ray disc player and a 3D TV to the receiver, you can have a 3D home theater system with exceptional high-definition sound and video.
  • High-Definition Audio Support
    The AVR-1613 features a full package of Audyssey audio technologies for optimal sound quality. Audyssey Dynamic Volume offers real-time volume adjustment, while Audyssey DynamicEQ improves your system's surround effects during low volume levels. Audyssey MultEQ automatically sets speakers to suit your room's listening environment and the speakers' characteristics.
  • Minimum Signal Path for Clear Audio and Video
    This receiver features a simple and straight design concept implemented in the signal paths to contribute to optimal audio and video playback. The signal paths are as short as possible to keep degradation to a minimum.
  • Easy to Operate
    The AVR-1513 offers an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) with large, easy-to-read characters. The new "Setup Assistant" prompts you through the initial setup, making it a breeze. Using any of four quick-select buttons, you can preset volume level and surround mode for the sources you most frequently use, so they're ready to play each time with the press of a button.
    It also comes with a simple remote control that runs on two AAA batteries (included).
  • HDMI Ports to Connect Your Mobile Devices
    The AVR-1513 features four HDMI inputs, including one on the front. As a result, you can easily connect mobile devices, like a camcorder or tablet, and immediately enjoy videos, photos, and music. The HDMI ports support the transmission of a variety of video formats, including 3D video as well as Deep Color and x.v.Color, which express beautiful images in full HD.
  • Vibration-Resistant for Greater Sound Quality
    Vibration-resistant construction suppresses the negative influence of vibration on sound quality. Power transformers are securely mounted on the receiver's solid bottom chassis to minimize vibration.
  • Boston Acoustics Speaker System
    Vibration-resistant construction suppresses the negative influence of vibration on sound quality. Power transformers are securely mounted on the receiver's solid bottom chassis to minimize vibration.
    The two-way satellite speakers and the center speaker contain 3-inch mid-bass drivers and a 1/2-inch soft-dome tweeter. They each have a reduced baffle diffraction design for wider, smoother audio dispersion.
  • Subwoofer with BassTrac for Tight Bass Response
    The system's subwoofer sports a down-firing design with a high-excursion 8-inch driver in a compact enclosure along with a 100-watt power amplifier. BassTrac distortion elimination circuitry delivers a deep, tight bass response by eliminating low-frequency distortions.
