  • Darbee Darblet integration
  • Remove vibration/motion sensor background lighting from remote. (my 4520 and now 7200 remotes are constantly lighting up during a movie due to bass vibration) Just make the remote light up when any button is pressed.
  • Ability to seperately EQ a pair of two channel speakers and still utilize subwoofer integration - so that when you go to stereo, or direct mode the two channel speakers could be used. (for those of us who have a matching set of PA speakers for cinema use, but would consider owning a seperate pair of audiophile towers for dedicated two channel listening.)
  • The ability to hide/eliminate useless DSP modes. The Denon units have multiple DSP modes, but most of them are junk (IMO) -- I don't want to cycle through four echo chamber DSP modes when I want to only utilize stereo, or multichannel, etc. It'd be nice if I could "hide" the ones I don't care for.
  • Change Dynamic EQ to NOT boost the surround channels in multichannel stereo (which would typically be used for music listening). Also boost the Left and Right channel by 3dB in multichannel stereo like Onkyo does in All Channel Stereo which lets all the surround channels offer sound as fill, but still retains your front soundstage.
Edited to fit my preferences. Most important highlighted.

My wish would be for an elimination of all analog inputs and outputs. I haven't used them in many, many years so it would be nice to have them eliminated to reduce some of the cost. I guess preamp outputs would still be needed. Although eleven channels of amplification would be on my wishlist too.

That's been my dream since at least 2008.

So as for pre-outs, how about the ability to process all 16 of them at the same time, so all active, a true 9.1.6 platform.
I really, really want pre-outs for more than 11 channels...15 plus sub(s): I buy anytime!

"15 plus subs" is not really important to have pre outs for. If you subs are on the front wall, you only need one pre out. If you have subs on the back wall and front wall, you only need two. I actually have 12 subs and I only use one pre out, but I have a dsp to time align them and then after that, you just need to tune them as a group.

+1 Anything beyond 'stereo subs' it's recommended to use a single LFE output for all subwoofer channels, no matter how many subs you have.

Everything I would wish for has already been said, so I am just going to mention a few personal high priorities.

I am using separate amps for a 7.1 bed ( I don't have room for more separate amps). I need a receiver that will process and power 6 high speakers, and 2 wide speakers (Height 1, Height 2, Height 3, Wide , 9.2.6). Auro Voice of God is preferred, but optional.

In terms of features, less is better. I have Apple TV, Roku, Oppo, Smart TV, Sirius/XM tuner. If a receiver can give me access to audio/video files on a Mac Mini, PC, and the internet, I'm fine. Some kind of easy to use room correction will do for me.


I could do with less analog inputs, but I would not be in favor of doing away with them altogether. I would like to see the industry do away with HDMI. I think it has limited applicability, is cumbersome and the cabling is too expensive; HDBaseT is a good compromise in my opinion.

I have held off on buying an Atmos receiver, but if I don't buy something in 2016, I may start living in audio hell. Reading the threads about new audio processing techniques and not having access to them is burning a hole in my brain. I may stroke out if I don't buy in the next 12 months.

I have installed 4 ceiling speakers and wired for six. I'm ready to drop some cash. I can afford Denon/Marantz, Yamaha, Onkyo/Integra/Pioneer, maybe Emotiva, although 5K is a stretch for me. At this point I prefer Denon, but it may be first come, first served.

P.S. - 64 bit DSPs would be good, but I am not sure why.

Wish list for any new receiver

1. Fully assignable speaker configuration (front/back, base,surround/height/overhead/wide, left/right) along with # 2
2. Distance and azimuth measurement for calibration
3. 15.2 channel capability in some form (9 channel amp, 6 channel external)

any news

Has anyone heard anything about a bigger and bad Receiver coming down the line from Denon. Something in line like the 5308ci used to be you know more goodys i know a bigger price. But remember how great the 5308ci was for the time.

There's probably not enough demand for such a sophisticated model. The consumer electronics industry is in economic convulsions as it is. They'll definitely play it safe and maybe even continue cheapening their products.

Addendum

Since I posted a comment (above) in August, I have obtained a refurbished Denon 5200; I like the amp, but my wish list has expanded slightly because I will be buying a new amp within the next 2 years. I hope Denon has made improvements on the network card (NIC) for people like me. I say that because others might not be having the same problems. I have had to reboot and reconfigure the 5200 twice when the NIC stopped working. I don't like that.

The bass control on the 5200 is very good, although more is better. It would be nice to have at least five plugs on the back of the amp for sub-woofers. I can use splitters; I don't like splitters.

Once again - three sets of height speakers please

7.4.6 system with Denon 8500, Additional Amps: Emotiva (front and center) and NAD (wide), classic Klipsch speakers.

To take this a step further, 11 internal amps that are configurable in that you can map unused amps to other Atmos height speakers on a one to one basis with whatever external amp(s) you are using.

Dirac live.

Video processing, RF control, support for Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro 3D out of the box, so to speak.

Zero hiccups with HDCP 2.2. HDR & UHD full support. Internal Wifi that rocks, speed wise. A partridge in a pear tree.

A price around $1,000. (Dream, dream, dream....dream, dream.)

Full Tidal / Spotify support

Dolby AC-4 support

Offer Dirac built in or as an upgrade.

Trinnov Altitude 32, LCR JBL M2, JBL LSR 708i, 705i, Q-SYS Core 110f, Amps- QSC CXD4.2Q, 4.3Q, 4.5Q

According to JD's source, the 7200WA will not be replaced until December 2017 or so. I don't know if that excludes something higher up that would come sooner and be the new top of the line.

I would say it should be time to "Build your own" AVR with the following options. It's okay if the delivery time is a month or two.

1. No of channels processing : 9 or 11 or 13 or 15
2. No of AMPs : None or 7 or 9 or 11 (or 13 or 15)
3. Bluetooth : Yes or No
4. Wireless LAN : Yes or No
5. Wired LAN : Yes or No
6. Multi Channel in : None or 7 or 9 or 11 or 15
7. Legacy analog connections : Yes or No
8. HDMI Inputs Rear : 3 or 5 or 7 or ...
9. HDMI Inputs Front : None or 1 or 2
etc. etc.

Now one should choose what they want and pay only for that than all the unnecessary crap you have to pay for..

I couldn't agree more. I wish manufacturers would bring back the s-video connnection. I prefer it over composite any day.

If by "full" you mean returning to the on board Spotify as is the case on earlier year models, don't count on it. Off loading the network streaming via Spotify Connect results in far fewer connectivity issues. As TIDAL is currently available via the Denon HEOS app (to stream to Denon HEOS speakers), it could be a future AVR networking source as well.

Yup. Although normal replacement time frame would have been Dec 2016, D+M has decided to push the X7200WA successor to 2017 (likely to Dec 2017) as apparently no real feature improvements available for 2016.

Thanks JD for the update. And still no sign of a Pre/Pro for the Denon line like the AVP-A1HD which came out 8 years ago.

It is interesting to me that we have had 64 bit processors and 64 bit software in computers for many years now, and the AV industry is still using 32 bit DSPs. It is kind of a chicken and egg thing. If we had 64-bit DSPs, what would the industry do with them? I suspect there would be many improvements off into the future. First the Victrola (one speaker), then stereo (two speakers), then 5.1 (six speakers), etc, etc. Does the hardware drive the software or the software drive the hardware? I think we need 64-bit DSPs. Who knows what will happen?

I wonder if it's possible that they might consider doing 11 channel amplification in the 6300? If they did, that would easily push it ahead in value over the 7200 for me.

Not likely to hear anything on the X4200W/X6200W successor models until later this summer (ie. July).
