Denon AVRX3500 vs AVRX2500

So a quick question for the experts out there. I am looking at buying either the Denon AVR-X3500H or AVR-X2500H. It is only for my den which is a 5.1 configuration, not my HT which is where I watch my movies, concerts etc.... I basically want it to be 4K so when I upgrade my TV it will be compatible.

They seem to be very close in specs only 10 watt difference at 8 ohms. So I am leaning towards the 2500 to save a few hundred.

Any reason why I should not buy the 2500 over the 3500 and where would you recommend I shop to get the best price on this unit.

I see Echo and Optics has the 2500H on ebay for $529.79... It's reg. MSRP is 799. Anyone have any experience with this company?

Thanks in advance!


Jim

You live in Houston, check your Fry's ads. When they put these AVRs on sale which they were last week nobody has close prices.

The x3500 is clearly the better receiver with Audyssey XT32 room calibration and preouts for all channels if you want to add additional amps. But since this is not your main room and you only want 5.1 the x2500 would suffice.

yup @afrogt is correct, the x3500 would be a good dedicated HT receiver. For a living room setup the x2500h is perfect. You just missed the frys sale, but that price at E and O looks good. Google their company and make sure they are an authorized Denon dealer.

The x2500h is probably what I am going to get because it finally puts everything together for me in a single solution under my budget. All inputs hdcp 2.2, added a phono input and has audyssey xt which is pretty good for basic ht living room.

Good luck!

Unless you need the extra input the 2500 is, IMO, a waste of money for your purpose. Get a 1500 and save even more.

Thanks for all the input...

The preouts for separate amps is a very nice feature. I have some older B & K amps that could be put to use here... But most of the other bells and whistles would be going to waste in this room.

There is no sub in this room as it got the boot when we did the full wall to wall and floor to ceiling entertainment center remodel of the den a couple of years ago. I have nice pair of Aerial Acoustic 7B speakers that have moved down from the HT to the den and now they are in the built in with an AA CC3B center speaker. And the surrounds are B & W, nothing to special, ceiling mounted speakers.

Our main concern is just improving the sound to be at least pleasant as the tv speaker as we all know is a waste. Even my wife hates listening to it..

My older Denon AVR-3311Ci has a hiccup and its time for a newer model to fill it's place.


P.S. Just found this... Looks like Walmart has the 2500H for 539.95.... Not to bad... And the 3500H for 689.99 Who knew Walmart sells Denon... And no tax and free shipping... Gotta love the internet!

What’s your setup (speakers) in your main theatre? Those aren’t bad speakers to have in a secondary setup. I realize they’re a bit dated, but I bet they still sound pretty good. Wish there were places where people could listen to aerial acoustic speakers. I’ve always wanted to listen to them.

Click the link under Galaxy Theater to see my HT... AA 20T 2V's are in the HT... Aerial is a small company which makes it harder to hear them... But take my word you will not be disappointed. Another member here on AVS runs three 20T 2V speakers behind his screen in a very high end HT... We are talking big bucks.. I got to listen to his HT as he is in Houston... That is when I upgraded from the 7's to the 20's... Also a gentlemen in Hawaii who also has a very nice high end HT uses the 20T's. He is on AVS as well... Another gentleman I have visited his second home at the Cape has them and uses them for two channel listening... You can not go wrong with Michael Kelly's products...

Do you happen to remember what the 3500H or 2500H sale price from Fry's last week was...?

I’ve seen the Hawaii guy’s theatre on here. It’s . Isn’t he the guy that’s using 7ts for front wide speakers or something like that?

Sweet main theatre. I like yours better than the Hawaii guy’s theatre. Sort of an understatement to say great job, but I don’t know what else to say. Lol. I like the color choices and the wood everywhere. Inviting room with all the wood detailing. So many theatres have a “cold” feeling to them. Again, excellent job. I’ll read thru your theatre thread to get construction details instead of asking you everything here. Your equipment room is sick. Hope you get to use it on a regular basis.

Thanks for your nice words! We use it several times a week and it is by far the best money that I have ever spent on any hobby or anything else for that matter...

I was afraid of that. I looked on Denon’s Site and did not see them listed. I’m a little surprised that a big company like Walmart could not gain that status of AD... Thanks for the heads up...

If anyone knows of an AD they can recommend with sale prices on these receivers that would be a big help...

Thanks...

Want to say thanks for everyone’s input.... especially afrogt!!! Your help was over the top!

I picked up the Denon AVR-X3500H from Fry’s...

Below are some pics if anyone is interested. I’m very happy with the 3500 and it was an easy install.

Dont forget some good ventilation for that 3500 or fans, as the Denons run hot. Even in open air conditions!

If you can relocate the other 2 components to another cabinet. So you can remove the other 2 shelves above the avr for better air flow around the 3500.

Hope you leave that cabinet open when using the AVR. Doesn't look open in the back so could get warm in there. You might want to look at the front exhaust Aircom cooler.

You can also run the Denon in ECO mode which reduces the temp by about 10*.

Point taken... In the past we would always leave the door open when we where using it. I will take both of your two decisions and:

1. Remove middle shelf and raise the top shelf one one notch and put the DTV box and the blu ray player on the top shelf to give more airflow for cooling... The cabinet door that houses the Denon has a mesh front for line of site for the remote controls and to let air in and out of the box...

2. I will buy either the T10 or S10 you recommended. I will buy it tomorrow. They both have the same airflow of 160 CFM and Noise of 24 dBA. So is it worth $30.00 for the T10? I did not get a chance to read in depth about both of them. Which one would you pick? Thirty dollars would not be the deciding factor if it brings extra benefit..

I hired professional carpenters to do the project. They did a awesome job with the whole room, ie wood walls, wood beams for the ceiling, and the floor to ceiling /wall to wall entertainment center. The inlay cabinets have the same width in the seam around each drawer... Great attention to detail! I'm very happy with their work.

You can still go back and add the lighting for your display boxes. I bought my lighting from Amazon... You did a nice job on yours...

I would get the one that vents the hot air out the front for your setup.

Both units vent the hot air out the front. I just bought another S10 yesterday for a friend that has a similar setup. She has a Yamaha receiver and the HDMI board died about a year ago under warranty. After it was replaced I suggested she leave the front cabinet door open when in use but just in case I ordered her the s10.

The T10 cost $30 more because it has LCD thermostat programming with six speed controls, alarm alerts, failure triggers, and memory. the lower priced model has preset modes which is fine for my usage. You can also turn the glowing ring off if it annoys you.

operators manual can be downloaded here. If the $30 doesn't make a difference to you get the programmable one.

I am guessing when I get this S10 or T10 I can leave the door closed when I am using the receiver?

I have one of the ac infinity units with exhaust out the back. It really depends on how much air can get thru the mesh in your cabinet door. By the way, the unit I have has the extra functionality described for the extra $30. I think it’s worth it bc you can set a temp level that will automatically push the unit into a higher “gear” to cool the AVR down if it reaches a certain temp. Without that feature, I believe it will be a fully manual situation where you have to control the air flow level manually. Sort of like in a car. I personally hate not having auto temp control in a car bc you have to constantly tweak the damn air flow. Drives me insane. This a first world problem you know. It could be much much worse. Like living in Venezuela. I would just try it when you get one with the door closed and see how air is getting thru the mesh door and then go from there. Hope that helps.

Smart move. I have the T8. Had it for over a year and it’s been great. You may like the T10 so much that you’ll be buying one or two for your main theatre.

Bought the T10 and it arrives tomorrow... My main theater already has cooling fans / temp probes that exhaust the hot air from the projector and the equipment room into the attic...
