The AVR-S660H has no less than three HDMI 2.1 inputs (labeled as 8K). A PS5 and an XBox Series X can both connected at the same time. Of course, only one of which can be displayed at a time.
A:AnswerThere are two (2) SUBWOOFER pre-outs on the rear of the unit. You will need a self-powered subwoofer (they come in a variety of sizes and power outputs!) for this and an RCA type connector cable (all of my new subs came with a cable in their box) that has one male end plug for the AVR subwoofer output and either one or two male end plugs for the input on the subwoofer(s). Once installed, go into your AVR's menu to set up for the subwoofer(s). It really is easy to do and as I said, you can hook up two subs (again, if you unit has two!) if that is something you desire. I have two 10 inch subs on my home theater setup from my Denon AVR-X4300H that I bought at my local Best Buy a couple of years ago (Two 10 inch subs!) For my new Denon AVR-S660H I am using a Martin-Logan 10 inch Sub that I also bought a few years ago at Best Buy and it works great with this AVR. All the best!
A:AnswerRegular speaker wire will work fine. You can unscrew the speaker connector to expose the hole for the speaker wire. Tighten the speaker connector and you are finished.
I will say that banana plugs make life easier if you ever need to remove your speaker wire for whatever reason.
A:AnswerThank you for reaching out with your question. You can indeed change the input names on your S660H AVR. To do this, please visit this website to follow the step by step instruction: https://manuals.denon.com/AVRS660H/NA/EN/GFNFSYbmopaqff.php

Unfortunately not. None of our receivers have any karaoke features built-in. For karaoke use, a karaoke machine is required to connect to a surround sound receiver.
While most modern surround sound receivers have a microphone socket, it is only for use with the room correcting set-up microphone (which is very different from a karaoke microphone). It does not function for a karaoke microphone.
The AVR-S660H is set-up to run a 5.1 speaker system. You can run just a stereo pair instead, or even three speakers across the front (with or without a sub-woofer. The AVR-S660H is not designed to run two main pairs of stereo speakers at a time in A/B mode. That being said, with a 5.1 set-up, you can select Multi-channel Stereo and have the same stereo feed to the rear speakers as you have to the front speakers.
If you want to run two separate pairs of stereo speakers in your home, and you don't need surround sound, have a look at our PMA-800NE stereo integrated amplifier:
If you prefer 5.1 surround sound, and the ability to drive a second pair of stereo speakers, have a look at the AVR-S960H. The second pair will be run, and assigned as Zone 2 speakers.
The AVR-S660H can have two pairs of speakers connected. For music, Multi Channel Stereo might well prove to be your preferred setting. How well the AVR-S660H (or the DRA-800H) handles your speakers depends on how challenging a load it is they offer.
The DRA-800H also will accept two pairs of speakers, but as this is a stereo receiver, it can only be selected to send the same feed to pair A as it can to pair B. The AVR-S660H can be used for surround sound signals to be sent to the second pair of speakers when playing TV/Movies/Games/Music.
A:AnswerThe AVR-S660H does not have the Zone 2 feature either as a pre-out or as an assignable speaker option.
The next model up in our range (AVR-S960H) does have the Zone 2 feature courtesy of an assignable speaker pair.
