Found 21st Dec 2017
The new Denon AVR-X1400H home cinema receiver is designed for you to enjoy an exceptional surround sound experience with the latest audio formats including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. The AVR-X1400H's 7 channels means that you can run two dedicated overhead speakers in a 5.1.2 configuration. That gives you perfect surround sound with three speakers at the front, two at the rear and two overhead.

With the Denon AVR-X1400H, you get six HDMI inputs featuring HDCP 2.2 compatibility and the latest HDMI specifications, including 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Colour sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 21:9 video, 3D, and BT.2020 pass-through support.

Cheapest it's ever been as far as I can tell. Great bit of kit for the money.

I know it's £50 extra but isn't the AVR2400 @£379 a better buy ? Knowing RS it will be £329 in a week or two.

One thing the 1400 has over the 2400 it's lower by 16cm & that can make a difference in AV units.

Hey - new to the avr era and sourcing one very soon, why can this make a difference? Any advice on this one (sony STR-DN1080) cannot decide!!! - ta

Thanks pal... Great question, My initial thought is using the speakers from this (DAV-IS 10), yes, will buy powerful ones down the line (or sooner).. These golf ball speakers have an impedance of 10ohm hence ok (from reading numerous info) still don't understand why I can' for eg. use a 5ohm rated speaker in an amp rated 6-16 ohms! - Any way - I would by this or similar amp for atmos, so using the speakers I have. Purchase a subwoofer and 2x atmos speakers - hey presto a start! Thanks for the info mate!
This isn’t better than the avrx2300w. Is it??

It’s almost identical. There was a firmware update for the 2300 that gave it the 2400s extra HDR functionality (Dolby Vision and HLG). All the 2400 has to offer besides that is Denons multi room HEOS compatibility that, I imagine, is dead tech anyway.
Lower by 16cm! You sure

These all in one systems are a good start into the AV (expensive) world of home cinema but lack any updating later. I started with some small Tannoy HTS 5.1 (£349) small speakers + sub & a Yamaha middle tier amp (£349). I choose this because if I want to upgrade later I could with the speakers. Then the amp if required !
I now own a Pioneer middle to hight amp (£599), Tannoy precision 6.2 (£799) & a BK xxls 400 sub (£379). I didn't go through the 5.1/7.1 set up, stereo with a sub is enough for my needs & more expensive the more you add.

I'm not the best to ask for speaker ohm, it's a science that I understand but don't speak the language but can only state what ive done & where I found the best information.
AVforums is a UK based site that has some great guys & girls who have done & owned the lot. There is all the info (probably too much) for starting your own set up.

If you have a Richer Sounds near you I would head down there & get a demo. I wouldn't want to mislead or guide you to my way, I'd rather give you the information that helped me.

The 2300 has more power and 2 HDMI outputs compared to this having 1.

A mismatch in speaker vs Amp impedance does not equal poor sound quality. It simply creates a loss in power efficiency. Theoretically a 4 ohm amp and 4 ohm speaker could allow a full power transition to the speaker. In the real world this never happens as nothing is 100% efficient. Cable resistance (loss) is also another factor.

I was simply asking what speakers he/she had & didn't mention anything about ohm's ? It was more to do with matching an amp with speakers in regards warmth/neutral/sharpness. This is all down to personal taste ! Please quote the OP & enlighten him with you're knowledge.

Sorry it's not the answer you require but I hope it helps in you're search.
Or go for pioneer vsx932 same price
