Any opinion on this receiver: https://www.amazon.ca/DENON-AVR-X360...48&sr=8-4&th=1

Is it worth upgrading to it assuming I'll need some advanced room correction?
If you have the budget for it, its a much better AVR. I wouldn't say its worth 3x the price just for the more advanced room correction but it also opens the door to up to 11 channel support down the road, among other things.

Is the 4k upscaling worth it? Will I notice better sound quality?

Given I will likely live in a condo for the foreseeable future 11 channels doesn't make sense - is it a waste of I'm limited to 5.1 (or may even need to downgrade to 2.1?

The 4K upscaling feature of an AVR is for video signals being passed, not audio. A lot of owners don't use it because their source device or TV does upscaling equal to or better than the AVRs upscaling.

The Denon 3600H is a nine channel amp (which can be expanded to 11 channels with an external amp). If you're limited to 2.1 or 5.1, it just means you are not using the full surround capabilities but its debatable to call that a waste, since most AVRs have at least 7 channel support anyway. There are many other features of the 3600H that still may be worthwhile for you such as the more advanced room correction.

Can't really find info on the Denon AVR-X1500H. It's $300.

A good A/V receiver? I will be coming from a Yamaha V673 that has its HDMI go bad.

I am mainly looking for getting Atmos/DTS-X sound with my setup - I have 5.1 and 2 ceilings in rear speakers.

I would like to have the enveloping sound - especially after room correction being applied. Thx!

@wildviper it is similar to the nr686 from Onkyo but on paper has a little better room correction with audyssey xt.

It's a 2018 model which is why you probably can't find info. It's a solid entry level AVR that checks your boxes.

If you're a Costco member, this Yamaha is a solid receiver for $379, closer to the X2500H (IMO).

Downside of the TSR-7850 is that it can do front presence or overhead - but may not support the 'rear ceiling' speakers the OP has in place.

He can assign the overheads to the rear ceiling pair. The Denon would be configured the same way, if only 2 ATMOS speakers are being used (5.1.2).

Thank you all. I am little burned by Yamaha. Thought it would last and has just been about 5 years. So

One factor that is important is better room correction as - like many of us, my room is not ideal. So was leaning on the Audyssey MultiXT. Does the Onkyo room correction in the same ballpark as Denon's?

Onkyo is better in my experience. I have owned and presently own a unit with Audyssey XT32. It ruins the sound so I keep it off.

Many will say no, myself included.
