Nor will you likely see it on any brands site. If the marketed rating on an AVR is 100W/5 or 7CH, take that to mean 100W/2CH.

Most (if not all) AVR brands will benchmark their marketed rating into at most only 2 CH (some only 1CH) which is true for Denon and Marantz models as well. 5CH rating would be about 80% of that...

Possible. Some new 2014 models are able to override the HDMI-ARC setting that forces the AVR to switch to TV audio. This is not the case on the X4000. Instead use an optical cable from the TV...

Don't know about "we", but "I" do. ;) And the point here, is indeed that for the vast majority having it ON should not impact the audio and will ensure lower cost and likely lower unit temp.

Why is that? In some cases Crestron and smartphone apps have even more functionality. Also look for a new and much improved Denon iDevice/Android remote app in October.

Not seen on others X5200W units, and no, ECO mode would not affect this, and Dynamic Volume would actually make the audio louder at a lower master volume level.
