Goodness, just a pair of stereo speakers with 99db sensitivity in a medium sized room? Why are you even looking at these super high end mega beef models?

To be pedantic, LFE would only be in the LFE channel (point 1) because that is the definition of LFE. Low frequency content in the main 5 or 7 channels (which ARE full range) is not "LFE", it's just...

There's no reason they wouldn't. First of all, the whole point of a Harmony is that they have a giant database of devices so you can preload commands. Second, the basic IR commands (input...

In a 17x33 room with cathedral ceiling, the two built-in 8" subs are definitely not sufficient for big impact movie bass. I would look into two high quality subs, at minimum $500 each (SVS PB-1000)...

I'm no expert but I haven't seen anything to make me think we need anything "special", i.e. waiting for the manufacturer to come out with "an Atmos-specific speaker". The "Atmos speakers" we are...

Why are you looking at these older models instead of newer more up to date Denons? The 4810 is 5 years old now. It doesn't even support 3D passthrough, and lacks some of the newer networking...

The only instance where not having HDMI 2.0 would be a limitation is if you wanted to pass through 4k/60hz content. The X2000 supports upscaling/passthrough up to 4k/30Hz, so you would be fine for...

Not to nit-pick, but I do think that room EQ done POORLY can definitely do more harm than good. It's not an absolute that applying EQ will NOT do something "detrimental".

The 4520 is mature and stable, but IMO if you are looking to upgrade I would wait a bit and see how the Atmos stuff plays out. It may be worthwhile to get the next gen (X5200 or X7200) which HDMI...
