Basically I can get an e400 for what I can sell my Denon 1909 so I'm asking if it's worth the time to do so. My initial research has me realizing that there won't be any sound fidelity improvements is this true or will it be worse? I know the 1909 is old but I was hoping someone with more knowledge then me could tell me some pros and cons for these two receivers. I was mainly considering it because I have outgrown the HDMIs on the 1909 and before you suggest it I know there are better receivers out there this is the best one I can get.

The E400 uses the same version of Audyssey MultEQ as does the 1909 so audio fidelity should be very similar; however, offers some additional features to include networking and All Zone Stereo to pass the same HDMI audio playing in the main zone to Zone 2. The 1909 does feature more legacy inputs to include an additional optical and coax digital input as well as an optical output. The 1909 also features Zone 2 pre-outs which allow you to connect a 7.1 setup in the main zone while using a 2CH external amp for Zone 2 whereas the E400 does not so you would have to drop down to 5.1 in the main zone if you want to use Zone 2 speakers. You would be better served to compare the rear panels of each model to determine if the E400 will meet your input/output requirements.

Think your AVR is defective? Check the Owner's manual and do a factory reset 4-5 times if necessary.
