Thanks

 

I did some more research

 

What is anyones thoughts on the Denon AVR x1000?

I think I want to go with this one, seems like the best value for under $500

I love the Denon brands this is what I install for all my customers, I would say you will be very happy with the X1000!

Ok thanks.  have you ever used this one before or set it up for someone?

 

 

Also, I saw this one as well

Are these two AVR's basically the same except for about $100 more you are just getting those streaming services I will never use?

 

It looks like the VR-E300 may be a better value if I will never use those streaming features.

Both the E300 and the X1000 are networking models and offer the same on board network sources; however, the X1000 features the more advanced version of room correction, Audyssey MultEQ XT and also comes with a 3 year warranty vice only two with the E300. The X1000 can also expand to add Zone 2 via an external 2CH amp should you decide to add to your main zone configuration.

If you live near a Fry's Electronics you can get the X2000 for $499. I was just in there yesterday.

I dont even know what that zone stuff is, I would never do that I am sure. I just have one room set up.

 

Do you think the extra things are worth the $100
