I have the 7200WA and I am very pleased with it . The surround and stereo formats on music are so good , (besides the video movie surrounds (Atmos , DTS-X , etc , of course) that I am not powering my separate class A stereo amp /CD hi-end system anymore , or if so , very rarely and only with some jazz cds that I really like in stereo .
Stereo jazz music now , even on quality hi-end equipment , still sounds great , of course , but it lacks something ... like it is missing dimensionality , deep perception and it is much more plain ... I would venture to say that it feels flat , even with great bass ... definitely Denon surrounds have spoiled me big time , lol...
Even Pandora and online music , which is , as everybody knows , crap quality , sounds good enough to enjoy it .
I have quite a few of of soft contemporaneous and smooth jazz cds that in my hi-end cd player when played thru the 7200WA sounds absolutely incredible with surround effects that amaze me every time . I have been able to built up a 9.3.4 Atmos speaker system with hi end speakers and subs , that , along with the Audyssey software from the 7200WA , allows me to take full advantage of all of those surrounds , either movies or music so I am able to enjoy the 7200WA potential in a very satisfying way .
The fact that the 7200WA will be getting the Dolby Vision and HLG updates is real good news so I can keep the receiver up to date .
This is the best bang for the buck receiver ever , and the quality of the sound is second to none .
I am amazed as to the progress that Denon has made in the last 15 years on sound quality and processing power .
On movies , The John Wick II movie (I bought it) has an absolutely incredible Atmos surround ... I don`t go to the movies anymore ... I wait for the movie to get out on Bluray and I buy it .
