power

I normally use my Denon X6500H approximately 3 to 4 hours a day. When not in use I unplug the unit instead of having it in standby because it draws power and over time can degrade things. Okay to do this?

Some recommend never turning off their AVR'S, power amps, separates.

Unnecessary, you aren't degrading anything, its barely drawing any power whatsoever. If anything you're more likely to wear out the power on/off button than degrade anything else.

AVR-X6500H specs: https://usa.denon.com/en-us/shop/receivers/avrx6500h_d

In standby it can draw 0.5W with CEC control, 3.5W with network control on.

IMHO, worrying about 0.5W is beyond fanaticism. If you turn off CEC, it's 0.1W.

I measured my X4500H at 6 watts in standby today.

So, I switch off my APC surge/filter that it's connected to.

I very much doubt leaving it in standby will degrade anything, nor will you see a difference in your power bill....but it's your gear and power bill! I'm sure it will be fine too if you power it down. You might be able to find a smart powerstrip that can do this for you so you don't need to physically unplug it? Dunno...
