I spoke with Denon yesterday about this and it's a known bug. The firmware that just released should fix it, according to Support, but I am not at home to test.

[QUOTE=avman09;56927914]That seems too good to be true if it includes the factory warranty, and better still if returnable within X number of days.

--Sorry I didn't clarify, this would be a private local sale and debating. I would be saving some bucks
here but the 4200 obviously does not have all the options the 4400 does. This also would not have
any warranties from the manufacturer.



$750 is a good deal, if $700, buy 2, keep one for spare.

-- I will keep an eye out as Fry's does discount their units from time to time with an email promo code.
This can also be found on slick deals when available.



That's a newly launched model, wonder how they can make money on such deals!

-- Fry's is sort of known for giving a quick launch discount and discounts through out the year
on Denons - Pioneer and onkyo. Seems like they do it to get you in the store as shipping is
not an option. Not everyone has a Frys local to them either.

Thanks for that response. Top middle might actually make more sense to use anyway since these speakers will be mounted to the wall above/behind me, but only by about 12" behind the MLP. Combined with the fact they are not in the ceiling firing directly downwards, the sound from the angled speakers will probably project to a point slightly in front of the MLP. Having the ability to assign them as rear height as opposed to top middle probably wouldn't warrant the extra $300 for the X4400H.

Both devices show "Atmos" as the input when an Atmos-encoded program is streaming and the output shows all the speakers active when I press "Info" on the X4400. But, when I am streaming a non-Atmos program, the X4400 "input" shows "multi-channel" input, not "dolby digital".
"Multichannel" input means that the player device (your AF4K or ATV4K) is providing a multichannel PCM signal. You'll only see "Dolby Digital" if the soundtrack's encoding coming into the receiver actually is Dolby Digital.

Edited to add: Apple TV 4K does not use Atmos over Dolby Digital Plus. Instead it sends Atmos audio to the receiver over PCM, using Dolby MAT v2.

That means that one of the upmixers has been selected.

When I use the green button on the X4400 to scroll thru the options, I get a lot of different ones, but not "dolby digital".
"Dolby Digital" appears only when the input signal is actually Dolby Digital. Since you're listening to a PCM signal, not to a Dolby Digital signal, the option to "play this Dolby Digital signal with no upmixing" is not available. You need to select the equivalent Sound Mode option "play this multichannel signal with no upmixing".

For a Blu-ray disc, the X4400 performs as expected. Is there a problem here?
Blur-ay discs use a variety of soundtrack encodings. When playing a Blu-ray disc, you'll see the option which corresponds to the actual encoding of the soundtrack that you're listening to. That might be Dolby Digital, DTS-HD Master Audio, or something else.

Dual HDMI output and handshake

Hi all

I have a denon x4400h, with simultaneous dual HDMI output
For now I just have an lg oled connected (HDMI 18gbps)
Now I wonder if I connect an Epson 4050 (HDMI 10gbps) will i have some issues

I know Input device like Xbox use handshakes to determine what can be outputted ( 3D, HDR, 4K , 60hz) but I wonder exactly how does the input device and receiver manage this.

Basically looking for feedback here


Second question, i have an xbox one x and if i select Atmos in the console settings, i get some random sound glitch (like micro-handshake loose only), any report of that problem with other owner of x4400

Thanks

I was not aware this was an issue. I see tenured members with over 10,000 post talk about price all the time. Is this specific to Denon? or do certain members get a pass based
on them being special members? Price talk about Subs, amps, receivers, speakers etc is always discussed in these forums.
Pricing for selling something I understand belongs in the classifieds.

If you are still confused, there's even a stick thread about it which is pretty hard to miss.

There is a huge sticky about it in every section of the forums.

There is a marketplace section to talk about pricing and deals and a buy and sell area.

I don't know why the rule is there, just know it is enforced when mods see your post. [quote=s2000;56930334]

Thanks to all who responded to me (@Madmax67, @MarkyM , @avman09 ) regarding my build quality question. Sorry for the slow acknowledgment.

The newer models seem to have more ICs and less analog discrete parts, and have better DAC chip (AK4458 vs PCM1791). The 3808/4308CI do have the better ADC, the PCM1804. Overall, I would say the 3808/4308CI do have better build quality, probably more comparable to the AVR-X8500H except the X8500H has better DAC chips, and a stronger power supply for the power amp section.
@avman09 , yes, 4308CI, and I think you may be right that I need to step up to X8500H or Marantz SR8012 to get to the same build quality. Feature-wise those AVRs are overkill for my needs, which means I'll need to decide whether to buy the features that I want and sacrifice on build quality, or buy for build quality and pay for some unnecessary features. The hard life of an audio addict!

What are people's opinions of the EI transformers in the AVRs below top of the line (e.g. X4400, X6400, Marantz SR7012) versus the torroids in the top models? I'll use external amplification for at least my front 3 channels if not surround L/R, and would only use the AVR's amps for my hights, surround backs, and possibly surrounds. So I doubt I'll be pulling a lot of juice from internal amps. Given that, should the transformer factor into my decision?

Not sure about speaker threads but TV and receiver/amp threads are no price talk threads. To be completely honest I just report long time "10,000 post members" directly to the mods because they are already supposed to know better and the mod handles it from there. New posters I try to give a friendly heads up to in a post as we have all been new in a thread and missed a rule here and there no biggie. Nothing personal but price talk is the worse thread clogger for us guy's. It's all we would talk about post after post if permitted and a main reason it's not allowed in help threads like this.

If needing help with what to buy questions based on price differences posters can just state the differences in prices between units without quoting an actual sales price to provide context. In the end though it's the feature differences that make consumers regret purchases after the fact not price. Price is often a stated customer objection but very often it's "what is my money buying me" that's more long term as far as buyers remorse. 22 years moving metal on a car lot told me that time after time after time. I think the Denon X4400H is the best value for the money pound for pound in the Denon line. I personally wouldn't go 3 years back in model year but that's just my opinion. Marantz would be my choice only if I was more of a pure 2 channel listener with more analog component connections who just watched a movie every once in awhile. Good luck with whatever you decide to get.

In theory there are pros and cons for both design. The mid to top line D&M EI frame transformers have copper shield wrap around the windings. Being custom designed, I assume they have other build in features to minimize leakage flux and hums. In fact, all my D&M AVP/AVRs/amps have quieter transformers, almost inaudible even with ears glue to the top, than the toroids in my separate power amps. If you look at S&V's measurements, their SNR, XT have been excellent over the years. HDAM, Toroidal Tx, like AL24/32, high bit rates/sampling rates etc., do have audio benefits, but as usual, there are always caveats and not all one sided. Marketing people tend to embellish..

http://www.soundstage.com/maxdb/maxdb071998.htm
https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/pass...nsformers.html

The AVR-X6400/6500H, AVR-X8500H seem to have better EI frame transformers if you go by the look, than the SR7012. Again, likely just cosmetics.. So in my opinion, no, not a factor at all especially if you plan on using external amp for the LCR channels.

How about linking to other sites for technical information only? Sorry I just did and your post reminded me to check the FAQ but am in a hurry right now. If not allowed I hope a mod would just delete the post for me. Thanks!

Copied my misplaced post from the 2018 Denon thread. Any help would be appreciated.

Couldn't find it through AVS or google search. Anyways...

Can I...

Output any of my gaming consoles (X1X, PS4 Pro and Switch) to 3 different display devices that all accept that type of signal (4K/60hz; 10 bit; 4:4:4) through the 3 HDMI outputs on this receiver (Monitor 1, Monitor 2, Zone 2)? All of these displays are in the same room; I do not wish to operate them at the same time. I just want to be able to use them one at a time based on the activity I choose. If possible, would any compromises be made in the process?

Ideally I'd like to have an 11.2 setup on the projector screen and let the other two TVs output the sound through their own speakers (or potentially a soundbar?).

4K Projector - BenQ HT2550
4K TV 1 (Arcade Cab) - Samsung UN40MU6290
4K TV 2 (Racing Rig) - TCL 55R615 (only one that can receive DV capable)


Honestly, I usually understand these types of things but this one is really confusing for me. I don't even know if I'm asking for the moon or this is easily doable. I also don't even know if I'm asking the question in the right way. I'm just getting close to finishing my buildout and need to know if I need to adjust my expectations or start searching for a hardware solution or something else. Any help would be appreciated.


Edit-

Just read back a couple pages and it seems I can do this...

Main - 11.2 channel audio (with external amp)
Z2 - 2.0 Stereo
Z3 - Nope (HDMI Source)


But as long as Main and Zone 2 can accept the same video input I shouldn't have a problem with video. Does that sound right?

Anyone have any experience using an HDMI splitter with zone 2 on a X4400H. I sure I would probably be asking for trouble by doing this.

anyone know how big the usb drive needs to be to use the save/load feature? also, does it save all configuration data by default (menu settings, audyssey data etc) or must i choose different things to save? about to bring home a spare 4gb drive from work and wondering if that will be enough

You will be able to fit many thousands of config files on that drive.

The file is <1Mb and includes the Audyssey EQ as well as configuration settings. Ensure the drive is formatted using either FAT16 or FAT32.

You could if you used the Audyssey LFC setting (p. 183 Owner's manual).

I tried that before even putting the cheap sub in. Seems like it just reduces the output of the low frequencies to the point of them not being there, even at the lower end of the range. I might give it another shot with the sub but prefer to control the sub level on an as needed basis since the amount of bass varies quite a bit with different source material. Plus, the servo is like four times the size of the Polk and space is at a premium.

I'm pushing the boundries of a HT in a condo with 9 channels, subs and bass shakers. It's a fine line between enjoying the system and eviction

Good deal. Glad it worked out. I have 2 12 inch servo sub's in my space. Love them.

I beileve it's just retail links to the products that are the basis of the thread. No price talk and no retail linking to the product is it I believe. Other than that I think your good. I link to all sorts of non thread products like sub cables and ground loop isolaters no problem.

My bad, I misread @damd5pt0;'s post; Denon support said that the Dolby Surround static is a known issue which should be corrected by an impending firmware release. She went so far as to tell me it was "supposed to be out this week", but I totally understand timelines.

Update, after updating, my update via network seems to function now. It returns update not required. Latest version installed.
Previously it always showed connection error.

New posters I try to give a friendly heads up to in a post as we have all been new in a thread and missed a rule here and there no biggie. Nothing personal but price talk is the worse thread clogger for us guy's. It's all we would talk about post after post if permitted and a main reason it's not allowed in help threads like this.

If needing help with what to buy questions based on price differences posters can just state the differences in prices between units without quoting an actual sales price to provide context. In the end though it's the feature differences that make consumers regret purchases after the fact not price. Price is often a stated customer objection but very often it's "what is my money buying me" that's more long term as far as buyers remorse. 22 years moving metal on a car lot told me that time after time after time. I think the Denon X4400H is the best value for the money pound for pound in the Denon line. I personally wouldn't go 3 years back in model year but that's just my opinion. Marantz would be my choice only if I was more of a pure 2 channel listener with more analog component connections who just watched a movie every once in awhile. Good luck with whatever you decide to get.
Thanks for the honest opinion. 4400 and 3500/3400 are on my radar and will probably hold off on the older 4200 model.

No problem. I love my X4300H but if not expanding past 7 channels its less attractive. I like being able to do a 5.1.2 setup and still have a second set of front B bookshelf speakers as in my space I wont be adding 4 height speakers but I have both main towers and bookshelves for different types of music. The X3500H will give you volume and GUI overlay onto Dolby Vision but for me that's not a big deal. For others it is.

Still looking for help! Volume issue is really angering me. Was watching a movie tonight and couldn’t go past -14 with a DTSX—- every other sound format / selection I could go to -2.5, Volume limiter is off. This Denon is turning me off from their products

I know Input device like Xbox use handshakes to determine what can be outputted ( 3D, HDR, 4K , 60hz) but I wonder exactly how does the input device and receiver manage this.

Basically looking for feedback here


Second question, i have an xbox one x and if i select Atmos in the console settings, i get some random sound glitch (like micro-handshake loose only), any report of that problem with other owner of x4400

Thanks
I have a x6400h but I believe the 4400 works the same in this regard. It will set both HDMI outputs to the capability of the lowest display. As an example , I have a Optoma UHZ65 4k projector connected to monitor 1 and a non 4k 1080p tv connected to monitor 2. Normally I have the non 4k display off and it sends full 4k to the projector. If I turn the non 4k display on it will change the output on both monitor 1 and 2 to 1080p. Hope that helps.

Mark
