Yes, UB5 should be fine.
What negative points are for UB5:
1. NOMINAL IMPEDANCE = 4 Ω
2. SENSITIVITY = 85 dB @ 2.83v/1m
The impedance is low (you should search for 8 Ω speakers) but it's ok - remember that you should NOT change the impedance in the AVR setup menu to 4 Ω - keep it at 8 Ω (default value on Denon's) even if you have 4 Ω speakers!
The sensitivity is also on the low side, you may want to search for speakers that approach the 90 dB sensitivity.
So, what this means for AVR-X1500H + UB5 setup? It means that the AVR will run hotter and with the Main Volume at a higher level than with 8 Ω and higher sensitivity speakers.
