Denon av receiver - tv surround sound - £149 @ Richer Sounds instore only

21
Found 21st Mar
Amazing price for an easy to use accomplished av receiver. It’s not Atmos but paired with the correct speakers sure to make a huge difference to your tv experience! This unit has hdmi ARC so assuming your tv supports this will power up with the tv and tv remote will control sound.

Only negative for me at least is I paid £220 for this on Saturday might phone Richer Sounds see if they will do anything.

If they won't price match, I'd buy again at the low price then just return with the old receipt. In fact just to take the **** I may even suggest you litterally walk out the door with it and then walk straight back in and do it

Bought this a week ago, good value at £220, bargain at £150!
Not 7.1.
Ooooo.

We've no ARC but I'm SOOOOO tempted by this.

It says DTS: No. That can't be right, can it?

We're currently using a top of the range but 20 year old device, but it has intermittent faults (was 99p on eBay.)

Can this be used just with four full-sized speakers rather than needing centre and subwoofer?

Oh dear. So very very tempted. Will be hard getting it without a car though! Lol.

I do love Denon amps. Are they still rated as well as they used to be decades ago?

I have a Cambridge Audio TV5 v2 currently. It's connected to Samsung smart tv via optical and a turntable via coax. When I turn on the tv, the tv5 detects this and automatically comes on. If i switch to turntable, it will again switch input shortly afterwards. Is this something the Denon will do? I have checked the spec on RS website but but didn't initially see if it could.
i have this it works great...thanks

In set up it asks what is connected. I have initially set it up without a sub.

Yes Denon still rated only such brands have survived as dedicated av receivers which are.

Not sure but as it’s RS they should be able to tell you if you give them a call

It should do, I have my pc connected via hdmi and turntable via coax and it auto switches.
I'm very tempted, my current Yamaha has an integrated sub-woofer, whereas this needs a separate sub-woofer, but the Denon supports 4k inputs, which is great for my X-box One and Sky Q. Hmmm, decisions, decisions... Any advice from my learned fellow HUKD'rs?

"integrated sub-woofer" what's that?

So whilst unsure quite what they have refunded me they have definitely refunded me something just from a phone call without fighting it at all. Another example of great RS customer service.

Consumer Electronics Control (cec) is when a device controls another by hdmi or whatever.

Audio return channel (arc) is video (and maybe audio) sent from amp to TV with audio from TV being sent back the other way to amp. So apps on TV can have their audio sent to amp etc.

I've just got this and the only option for TV audio is optical...the HDMI is connected and both devices should have ARC...maybe the cable isn't compatible?

What tv do you have?
Quite often the tv will only have 1 arc hdmi and for example on the two Panasonic’s I have it’s hdmi 2

Samsung MU6400 55 inch
If your sure you have it in the correct hdmi ok the tv then it’s just a case of selecting the correct options on tv. Think this guide might be helpful https://denon-uk.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/964/~/how-do-i-use-arc-with-my-samsung-tv%3F
ARC isn't great for amps anyway, doesn't support 5.1 etc it's seriously flawed. Its a great idea but until ARC can handle 5.1,DTS etc it's fairly useless for most.

I've got a Yamaha rx-v1067 that needs replacing as it doesn't support 4k and although the TV has plenty of HDMI ports I miss the easier switching etc from the amp etc.

Don't know what to go for next something under £300 preferably

If having trouble often ARC has to be enabled both ends, if it doesn't work try a different cables shorter the better. Was very fussy setting it up here eventually got it working but as its stereo only its just not worth it, if you've gone to the trouble of having an amp then you want the best sound possible instead of hobbling it to stereo.

This model DOES include ARC it's the x520BT that does not support it therefor this model has everything you could want, I own it and sound quality is amazing.
pair this with the Sony x900e like me and you have one hell of a setup.
