If you have 4-ohm speakers connected ... lower the volume as it's not designed to power 4-ohm speakers at high volume levels, otherwise .. if 6-ohm or 8-ohm speakers .... just exchange it. The X2100W should be barely warm to the touch.

Also note .... there is a dedicated thread for the 2014 Denon AVRs linked below ....... Review posts 3-6 in that thread for additional general helpful information.

Have U provided adequate free-air clearance around the AVR.. :rolleyes:

Denon recommends at least 6" clearance for the L/R sides and top cover.
Also do not place any other component on top..

If not provided, the AVR will run hot, can shut down prematurely and its life expectancy can be reduced by up to 75%....

Just my $0.02... ;)

I'm thinking yamaha better over all denon seems kinda cheaper made yes i been told several times but i cant control users that keep responding to my messages
Yamaha AVRs are #1 in reliability..
They own/control their factories and design teams, whereas Denon outsources their mass production....
In 2010/2011 Denon was very strong in market share, new technologies and reliability. Then they hit some hard times...
  • Lost control of their distribution, going for price leadership rather than profit margin
  • Internet pricing went crazy
  • Key quality, influential AV specialists/installers dropped the brand
  • Engineering/product development/marketing organization was shredded 145 people were let go
  • Ownership buyout by Bain Capitol (Mitt Romney)
  • Yen/$ exchange rate issues
  • Difficult to manage/merge engineering resources between their Marantz & Denon brands
  • Mass production shifted from Japan(Denon owned factories) to outsourcing from mainland China
  • To raise liquidity corporate sold off certain profitable divisions

Now..
Things have stabilized somewhat, but yet the global economy hasn't fully recovered.

Just my $0.02...
