The X4000 with Audyssey XT32 is likely to provide better audio quality then YPAO at the A840 level especially as Audyssey can EQ the subwoofer.

No real issues with the Denon unlike the Onkyo problems that continue to plague? Harmon Kardon has some nice additions in their line too. Such a pain! I'm coming from a Sony that just simply doesn't have enough HDMI inputs otherwise it works just fine and will be used for the backyard speakers and mounted in the outdoor kitchen.

Thanks!
Is anyone able to provide input? Thanks

Nobody will answer in case your house burns down. But you're likely to find when you research this further that it's no problem at all as long as there are no kinks.

Thanks but what do you mean by kinks? If I wrap up the extra cord in a figure 8 would that be considered kinks? Thanks

You do realize turning Native off in your DirecTV box will accomplish the same thing, right?

Guys, i found when playing DTS Music (DTS Wav files from USB drive), that the it was unlistenable with Dynamic EQ on, i had to turn it off

Is this normal ?

and another question re playing music from usb drive

When you switch to another input source, does the receiver automatically stop playing music ? (meaning it is not playing in the background/internally or anything like that ? )

thanks !

Quick (maybe stupid) question...
I have 8 Ohm 100W rated speakers, if I get the X4000 which is rated at 125W will I be able to setup up XT32? Doesn't that require me to put the volume up to 0db?

I'm actually not sure. I don't have the specs on them as they are old. I've had them for a very long time. (New speakers aren't in the budget right now. )

They are Pioneer S-FCR200-K. I can't find anything online about them other than people on other forums searching for the same thing. On the back label, all they say are 8 Ohm Impedance/100 W Max Power. That's all I have.

Will I be ok with these speakers?

Another question, i know this has been asked before

on my X3000, how safe is it to go above 0db on the volume ?

for some sources like -20 to 25 is more than loud enough, others, close to 0db is pretty loud, but not blown your mind loud

Can i go to +5 or +10 ?

I have these speakers

Yes, you will be able to set up XT32. Although on average the AVR will only output < 5W/CH (and rarely, if ever, exceed 100W/CH), when Audyssey is run a 75db test tone is used which is also likely drawing < 5W CH.

Not recommended, no, with any speakers. Doing so results in a very minimal increase in volume, but a HUGE increase in power draw.
