Have been looking at buying one of these for a few weeks, as I've had Denon amps/receivers in the past, but not sure whether to go for the Denon or the Sony STRDN850, which seems to have got really good reviews. I would like to demo both, but nearest place is 100 mile round trip.

The Denon has the better speaker calibration software. That is a big thing when considering an AV.

Hi, Thanks for the reply. At the moment though speaker calibration won't come in to play as i will be just using my headphones. The Tannoy speakers I have are too big/overkill for the room its going in at the moment.

Thanks, but this is the closest i was mentioning. The closest Peter Tyson store is around 370 miles away.

Yes, but no free cable and no extended warranty.

I actually got mine from Richersounds as they threw in a 5 year warranty as it was bought with other things.

I was interested in comparing: this one, and Yamaha RX-V677 but the Richer sounds demo rooms just weren't anything like my environment with my speakers. The Yamaha at the time sounded better to me, but I really wanted to demo them at home. I bought both with the understanding that I would be testing them at home myself, and bringing them back for a full refund if I didn't like any of them (they were both open box/display models, so was easy to negotiate that). From what I understand, the Yammy 677 is in the same range as the Sony STRDN1050 (a higher model than the 850 you are considering). Everyone everywhere, recommends the Yamaha over the Denon, and in truth, so did I. Until I demo'd them at home in my environment with my speakers.

The Yamaha felt a lot better built. Heavier, bigger, better buttons, nicer feeling remote. But in my view, the Denon was better in every other way.

1.) £60 cheaper!
2.) Sound (obviously). Just was massively different.
3.) Setup. The auto mic stuff was just so damn cool, and just was more comprehensive than the Yamaha had.
4.) Software/display/menus. No competition there. Yamaha GUI looked like 80's graphics compared to the Denon
5.) Power. The Denon has slightly more power.
6.) Connectivity. Denon has extra HDMI ports (input AND output!) and Bluetooth, which frankly is very handy!
7.) Separate power lead. So you can replace with a longer one if required (small point, but still a simple win in my books)
8.) Cleaner remote layout (although all AV Receiver remotes are crap these days IMO)
9.) Slightly smaller. Makes cable management easier (in my cabinet anyway). Downside to this though maybe heating (see review below).

And with the extra warranty, it was a no brainer

You either love or hate "the yamaha sound".
I hate it (and endured it for about 6 years on 2 receivers...both sounded the same even if one was worth 7 times as much think it was an RX-V1900)

Great for certain material though.

This is indeed a better deal than the Richersounds one, but will see if RS will throw in the HDMI cable and their own 5-year warranty at the same price. Worth a punt. In any case, this gets my Heat (oo-er!) over the RS deal.

Hi, thanks for the comprehensive reply. Most appreciated. I am leaning more to the Denon than the Sony, even though the reviews would seem to go against this. But in the past I've found my Denon amps to be a fuller,warmer sound than the Sonys brighter, thinner sound. Could you tell me if you use Spotify on the Denon, as this is one of the main reasons I want an amp like this at the moment. Also how well it connects to your wifi?

I like a lot of people have never liked the sound of the Yamaha, and tbh really don't like the look of them, unless you go flagship.
Many thanks.

I don't use spotify, and will be connecting via network cable. But the amp only supports wireless G from what I gather, but does have 2 antennae, so I wouldn't expect any problems (I'm still waiting to pick my amp up). I did connect it to my wireless network briefly when testing, and there weren't any issues. Then again, my router was right next to it.

Just purchased mine from Richer sounds as they threw in a free 5 year warranty upgrade. Not bothered too much about HDMI cable.

Ok, many thanks again.

I'm new to the world of AV receivers and have learned quite a lot from many of your posts, thanks.
I am thinking of upgrading from my Panasonic 5 yr old 1000w one box dvd cinema system.
I think this Denon AVR-X2100 ticks all the boxes for me and I am considering buying it along with speaker set Tannoy TFX 5.1. or Boston Acoustics 5.1. (any advice/thoughts appreciated).
Also I have tried but failed to find out about zone 2 stereo speakers. Q1. can they be used independently?
Q2. could they be controlled from a phone or tablet from that room? Thanks

Add these to your speaker choice: richersounds.com/pro…dx1
Zone 2 is different with all AV's.

Thanks, I hope to visit Richers soon to see what they all look like in the flesh and ask for a demo. Maybe they can inform on the Denon zone 2.

I listened to the Denon X2100 and Sony DN1050 in Sevenoaks, both were similar on 5.1 movie sound, but the Sony had so much more depth on stereo music listening to Relax by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Couldn't believe the difference, I am no audio file but I'm getting the Sony this week. Speakers were the B&W MT50 in case you were wondering, which I am also getting.

I like the look of those Wharfdale DX1 speakers very much indeed.......I see they are rated 4 ohms,. Would it be OK to use with a receiver that says use 8-16 ohm speakers?

Run them at 8 ohms.

Bit the bullet and went for this as it dropped back down to £279
