Greetings Everyone,

I’m in a position to buy a used Denon x4200H for 325€ In excellent condition!
Would this be worth to buy over the Denon x2500H that I currently use?
Does the x4200H have eARC?

This is my 5.2.2 setup at the moment:

You may want to compare the feature sets in the corresponding Denon FAQs for their respective years
2015 for the AVR-X4200W

and 2018 for the AVR-X2500H (post #1 that compares models didn't survive the transition to the new platform, but there's plenty of info in the other posts)

But in short the X4200W offers 7 channels expandable to 9, Audyssey XT32 and associated features, Zone 2 HDMI, and the potential for an Auro3D update.
The X2500H offers HDMI 2.0b, eARC, higher spec bluetooth and wifi, Heos and streaming music features, and Airplay 2 compatibility

If you're already using the X2500H, you're basically looking at Audyssey XT32 as an advantage, possibly sacrificing some GUI/Info overlay capability.
If you're not connecting full uncompressed audio to an HDMI input on the TV, Apps on the TV should be able to send lossy DD/DD+ audio back over ARC.

I dont think you should go that way.
You should upgrade...
No upgrade to consider an old 4200...4-5 years old!

Why are you looking to upgrade?
Is there something that the X2500H can't do that you're looking for?
For example support for more Atmos speakers or better room correction?

@philpoe
for exactly those reasons, I wanted to upgrade to 5.2.4 and better room correction since my living room is not the most ideal so could use all the help I can get.

IMHO, the X4500H is the better upgrade option, since you'd need an amp to get the X4200W to do 5.1.4 and that would close the price gap.
In addition to any other features that came during the years, if you ever wanted to expand to 7.1.4, the X4500H could.

Additionally, in the off chance the seller has proof of purchase and it hasn't been registered yet, it still has warranty left.
