depends. as far as the denon 4400 goes, yes. The 4400 does 11 channel processing. SO all you need out of the old receiver is 2 channels - assuming you are going to a 7.x.4 set up... otherwise you are already set for a 7.x.2 with the on board amps.
since you only need 2 add'l outboard channels, you can use any analog input on the old receiver - make sure you set the old unit to "direct" mode so it doesn't apply an y processing. Turning it on may be a manual thing if it doesn't have any 12V trigger inputs...
