Ok I need help on picking a good receiver, I know what brand denon. But what would be good not perfect world but very good for my 7.1 polk rtia7. 15x17 room. Money is not a to big of a issue but not wanting to spend extra if I don't need to. So will the x3000 be plenty of power for the speakers or the 4000 will be perfect, or I just won't hear that much of a diff. Thank you,

The difference in power is meaningless. A barely perceptible increase in volume requires a doubling a power. Ignore AVR power ratings. They have nothing at all to do with the performance of your system.

I would be buying the X4000 for the features that it offers that are found on receivers costing a thousand dollars or more and power (watts per channel) wouldn't even be in the equation. FMW is dead on with his post, if power is your thing you need to be looking at a much more expensive receiver or add an amp. Whether you hear the difference is a whole different debate. Still trying to hear the headroom gained on my system smile.gif

So your saying the x3000 is just good enough for my setup. It has the same features except the some minor one I don't need like hd radio.

I'm pretty sure the x4000 has a good amount of extra features over the x3000 from when I was looking at the two units, one of the main being Audyssey XT32

That is your decision. I just explained that amplifier power isn't an issue.

I have the RTIA9 and I'm using a X4000 right now.  More than happy with it.  I do hear that the RTIA9 sound better when being pushed by a amplifier to their potential.

Yes, if the 4000 will handle the job so will the 3000. The difference is in features.

The main benefit of going with the X4000 would be the improved room correction from the more advanced version of Audyssey MultEQ XT32 as well as the fact that the X3000 does not have main zone pre-outs as does the X4000 should you decide you want to add a more powerful external amp (eg. Emotiva XPA-2 or XPA-3).
