To the forum gods, I just sold my Denon 5308ci why i just got a Samsung 65inch 4K,3D tv so i needed the 3d, 4k pass though. So this is what i am up to i do see Denon and Marantz are coming out with new Dolby Atmas Receivers. With the new receivers will i need new speakers. I also see the i can now pick up Denon 4520, and a Marantz 7008 for the same price. I do have a wife she said NO NEW SPEAKERS. So a little help please.

Unless you currently have overhead ceiling speakers, ideally you either want to install 2 or 4 speakers, get Atmos top firing speakers or use add on Atmos modules placed on top of existing speakers or a flat surface nearby. If new speakers are not in your future, the 4520CI would be the better alternative as it is Denon's current flagship 32 bit model mfr'd in Japan, while the SR7008 is a China built 24 bit model.

Okay. So you could add a pair of Def Tech Atmos A60 modules placed on top of your FL/FR speakers for a 7.1.2 setup; however, if not wanting to add more speakers, the 4520CI is likely your best option.

has there ever been any documented information that the Chinese made models( of any brand) were inferior to the ones built in Japan?

or is it a placebo....

Clearly...I know the reason for the move
But just wondered if anyone has any verifiable information on the differences..if any

added to that the falling prices of the unit....that IMO...will continue to do so

Anyone have an issue with the HDMI port going bad? I believe mine has.
