I also looked at these two receivers also, and posted a short comparison of them in the forums. Ultimately went with the X2200 and am happy with the choice. However, with the current price of the Onkyo it would be hard to pass up now if I had to do it over again.

I am glad I came across this thread. I am looking to upgrade from an Onkyo TX-SR609 that has been a solid performer since I bought it about 5 years ago. I was looking at both models today at Fry's. The Denon is on sale for $398 and the Onkyo is $425. I have typically used Onkyo receivers, starting with a TX-SR800 over 10 years ago. The Fry's rep felt the Onkyo was a better receiver but really couldn't tell me why other than stating that the Onkyo was more powerful. I don't think the power output will make that much of a difference as was previously stated in the thread. The sale lasts for a couple of more days. Unfortunately, I don't have the ability time-wise to do an extended test with both units.

With price basically the same for both units, from what I have read, the Denon seems to be a strong candidate at this point.

The receiver is in our media room with moderate use (10-20 hours/week) only for movies and TV - no music. I use an ATV4, Tivo Mini, Roku 3, and a Blu-Ray player all via HDMI feeding a ViewSonic Pro8200.

It appears that the big difference is Audyssey on the Denon.

Any other items to consider between the two models?

I have heard several people mention smaller punch of the Denon bass, both review sites and posts in the forums. Since the sub has it's own amp, can't you just turn up the volume on the sub? I'm assuming that the signal the Denon is sending the sub is fine, just not high enough. So if that is the only real flaw, then turn up the sub and be done with it. Am I missing something?

My X2200 is getting shipped next week, so just curious.

Nope .. not missing anything. Most owners who have AVRs that use Audyssey generally prefer to bump up the sub volume +5db (or whatever you prefer) after Audyssey has completed.

So i got JBL nightlife surround sound system.

I need an amp, my 3 options are:
Onkyo nr-tx646 540$ +60$ canadian 4 yearsbestbuy geeksquad waranty

Denon x2200 or s910w 540$ canadian Manufacture Waranty

Im only going to watch movies and tv.not music.

I read many reviews online where Denon lacks in the BASS department which is huge for me but the sound clarity is awesome and the video upscaling is a huge difference.

Onkyo I read reliability issues (why the 4 year waranty from.best buy would be peace of mind). But The Bass is awesome on this one from what I read and sound but cheap interface.

The bass on the denon is low after the Audessy calibration but why cant you raise the bass since it has its own amp? To bring it to the same level as Onkyo?.

which would be recommebded and yes im a newbie.

Just got my X2200W today, haven't had a chance to hook it up yet. I'm coming from a Harman Kardon AVR-1700 and am hoping the Denon has the same level of sound quality as the HK.

It has the lower version of Audyssey as well as some missing features that the X series has. And the X series has another year of warranty.

So the extra 130watts doesnt make a difference? 910w has 630 vs the500 for x2200 and 910w is more expensive. For the less punchier bass does turning up the bass knob on the sub solve this problem?

Not sure where you're getting your numbers from, but both the S910 and X2200 are rated 95 watts. The X2200 has been on sale for maybe 2 weeks or so to clear out stock for the 2016 model. Previously it was $220 more than the S910. Why none of the other 2015 models are on sale yet I have no idea. I bought an S910 last month, but then returned it for an X2200, when it went on sale.

Definitely a great purchase. This is my first AVR though so I can only compare it to using TV speakers, which is a basically a useless comparison. There's no features I feel like I'm missing out on though. I feel like it's a steal right now for $500.

Absolutely loving it. Much clearer sounding than the HK was as well as more user friendly.
