I have had my Denon X4400H for more than one year. I cannot express how happy I have been with the receiver. So nuch so, I have convinced two other people to buy one.
First, my cousin, with whom I have a running war for the best system. He has been very happy with his new system since I last visited him. He was running the system in surround with DTS NEO 6. That would not do for me. We investigated and found that the connectivity he was using with his smart TV caused him to only receive two-channel stereo. I connected a fiber cable from his TV to the Denon X4400H receiver and set the Denon TV Audio to use the Fiber connection. BAM! We have Dolby Digital + running perfectly!!
Two, my boss. He had a much older Denon receiver that he loved and it died. He was upset that it didn't last more than ten years. I explained to him that ten years is too long to hold onto a receiver with all the advances in technology every year or a few years. Because of my urging to get the Denon X4400H or the equivalent Marantz; he finally settled on the Denon receiver. He didn't tell me for several weeks after he got it until I asked him what he decided to do. At which point, he stopped our lunch meeting to rave about how great the new Denon X4400H receiver sounded. He was so happy that he recommended the receiver to others at the meeting. Another manager stated that he was thinking about an upgrade. I told him to come see me when he was ready to start his search. Of course, I will have only one brand recommendation: Denon.....only DENON.
Have a great day and be kind to each other,
