I currently own the Pioneer 1019 and have not been impressed with it since I bought it. I am looking to upgrade my avr to something I can have and not worry about upgrading a few years down the road. I have read nothing but good reviews about the Denon x4000, so I went to Magnolia and listened to it and liked it and listened to it next to the Marantz 7008 and I could not really hear a difference.....well in my opinion.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend another receiver to go listen to.

I am currently running 7.1 with Yamaha NS series fronts, surrounds, backs, and PA120 as my sub. I am looking for a receiver that will last for years and be ready for a speaker upgrade when the time comes. Basically the best sounding receiver within a budget of $1,500 or less and using the Audyssey MultEQ XT32.

Anyone has any experience with one, other or both?

Thanks in advance,
Jeff

Either of the X4000 or SR7008 would make an excellent choice.

After listening to them both, I just couldnt see spending the extra $700 for the Marantz.

Well received the receiver on last Wednesday (7/9/14) from Accessories4less. Installed it...set it up and WoW.......sounds AMAZING, I had a smile ear to ear!!!! But have come into an issue. The center channel has static coming out of it constantly and quietly "pops" a few times every 15mins or so. Just got off the phone with Denon and going to send it back for a replacement. So far so good on the customer service.....I just hope this doesn't become a long, drawn out crazy process

Good luck! Hopefully they take care of you. For those looking to purchase, JD smoothie was really helpful in my decision.

FWIW, I had a minor issue with my receiver (the OSD doesn't work in network mode) and JD was very good to deal with. Offered suggestions to troubleshoot and when that didn't work quickly offered a new unit. No hassle.

And he have me a good deal on the unit when I purchased. For those thinking refurb, give him a shout. The px difference isn't as much as you probably think.
