Receiver recommendation with some specific requirements

Hey all,

I am looking for a new receiver and have some pretty specific requirements. I am sure there are quite a few that will meet my needs but have not been not been following receiver tech in the last couple of years. As history for years I bought almost exclusively Denon receivers. The last couple I bought though didn't feel like they had the same quality of construction as the ones I had been picking up in years past. The last couple of receivers I have picked up have been Yamaha. That being said, I am open to any brand really.

The receiver that is being replaced is a Denon 3311. Primary use is home theater.

Price range is $1,000-1,500 but I have some flexibility in budget.

I currently have a 5.1 system with 4 Mirage OMD-5s, a Mirage OMD-C1 and an SVS PC-12.

So, here are my needs.
  • Need to be able to support my 6 ohm speakers.
  • Need to have full bandwidth HDMI 2.0 ports supporting HDCP 2.2
  • Needs to have at least 2 component inputs, preferably 3
  • Needs to support Analog to Digital upscaling for component to HDMI.
  • Needs to include room correction software(Audyssey or similar)
  • Should support HDMI ARC
  • Have a large number of total inputs. I have 11 devices connected currently so having a large number of inputs that can all be assigned is a big priority for me.


I am ready to buy now but don't have to buy immediately. I know many of the HDCP 2.2 receivers are launching in the next couple of months.

Your advice and guidance is greatly appreciated.

Consider the new 2015 Denon X4200W although not likely to be released until September. You can use HDMI and component switches for additional inputs above what the AVR offers.

Thanks. Doesn't seem like there is much info on that one. What makes you recommend it over the other upcoming AVRs or the Yamahas above?

Either would be a good choice, although the Denon is under your budget. The A2050 should be available later this month and uses YPAO vs. Audyssey on the Denon. Call if interested in additional information and pricing from AVScience.
