It has 8 in and 2 out hdmi, does this mean it can split the signal say if I have a TV and projector setup?

Stupid question I'm sure, but could I keep my existing Onkyo speaker setup and just hook them up to this?

Great amp, only paid £349 for mine last year but it's been great.

Does this one have the set up assistant?

Yep.
Bought mine just before Xmas and love the sound, the remote control app and that I can get internet radio on it! :)

BTW anyone knows why RS doesn't sell the Denon's sister Marantz model? The only Marantz AVRs they have are the two slimline NR models, not the standard SR models.

That depends what system you have. Some of the Onkyo all in one systems will not work on this. You may blow the speakers or damage this amp if it is one of those systems. Surprised at people just saying yes to you, to be honest. oO

Which system do you have? :)

Got an atmos receiver recently and hooked it up to my PC. BF1 with atmos sound is something else.

Nah, the Yamaha (although great) only has 5 HDMI ports, 1 out and only 3 are HDCP 2.2. This Denon has 2 HDMI out ports and 8 in, all of which are HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0a compatible. Depends what you need I guess.

I recently bought this. I was gonna get the 656 but HDCP 2.2 on all hdmi inputs on the denon swung it for me. If you're getting and av receiver for 4k look at this or the onkyo 676

Are Denon products reliable? I have an Onkyo which has given up the ghost after only 3 years so reluctant to get another (even though sound was good). Yamaha, Denon or Pioneer (slightly worried about latter as now owned by Onkyo). One key factor always missing from reviews - reliability!

Get the 6 year warranty and don't worry about it :)

Been looking at this amp for a while, excellent spec for the price! Not going to bite just yet though.

German website HiFiTest found that this puny receiver was only capable of 100W across 5 channels into 8 Ohms. This is simply not enough for any realistic home cinema and you would be better spending your money on a soundbar instead.

It got pretty damn loud in my tests, 3 channel. I think it's perfectly fine for 6 ohm or higher.

Which receiver would you recommend for around the same price or a little more?

The Pioneer VSX1131 is quite feature packed. Comparing with music though, I'd say the Denon is slightly too bright, and the Pioneer lacked dynamics and clarity for me, hard to explain what I heard. If I had to choose, it would be the Denon, as it supports Audyssey and all HDMI's are HDCP 2.2 compliant.
Nothing against Pioneer though for the price.

Yes but those were the days when amps were made to last and weighed a ton due to quality transformers, inductors and capacitors and no plastic. And these were just 2 channel stereo amps rated around 100w rms.
