Denon AVR-X4000 (2013) - Is it time to upgrade to a 2019 or newer AVR?
Hello Denon AVR experts,
I've had my Denon AVR-X4000 since it came out (2013 or so).
It is working well with a 5.1 setup (Athena AS-F1 fronts, AS-C1 center, AS-B2 surrounds, and Athena AS-P6000 Subwoofer) and a Samsung Plasma TV 1080P about 8 feet away, which also works well enough.
Typical use: Movies either from Netflix or Amazon Prime in a second bedroom (11 x 18 feet) that functions as my home-office and home-theater cave.
I do not have much interest to upgrade to an Atmos set-up, unless somebody convinces me that the difference is worth it, and even then, it'd be limited to front height speakers (and I'd still hesitate about putting more speakers within the room).
But in any case, I'd welcome comments and an education about it.
Having said all of this... every few years, I like to check whether the new AVR's "state-of-the-art" would make a significant difference and merit an upgrade, staying away from marketing gimmicks.
So, would it be time to upgrade the receiver to one with the latest technology (Denon 3600? or 4500?) for some good reason(s) or not enough progress has been made to merit an upgrade yet?
Keep it cool. HT room: L11 x W18 x H8 feet (1584 cuft)
