So it is long overdue to upgrade my receiver, we just got our first 4k tv and at the end of this year we will be getting a second, probably the new Samsung QLED (unsure of model right now).
Right now I am running a yamaha RX A720 and looking at going to a Denon AVR-X4400H.
The reason I was going to go to the 4400 over 4500 was price. I thought about the 3500 but from what I have read the 4400 is still the better of the 2, plus its still cheaper than the 3500.
I think most of you would agree that going to the 4400 is going to be perfectly fine and what I am going to be missing from the 4500 is easy to get over.
I dont need bass sync, nor the imax enhanced and the dts: virtual x.
Does anyone have any other opinions or suggestions?
Some of the things I want is:
Lossless Audio support
Multi Zones for speakers and video. Supporting [email protected]
for both outputs simultaneously
Google Assistant integration (ability to stream to our current google home speakers)
Dolby Atmos (for future plans)
