It will probably get cheaper. I'd wait for a good deal on the X3300 personally.
What benefit does the 3300 have over the 2300?
Soon as this hits £299, i will go for it. In prep for when I get an 4k TV with HDR.

More power. Better audio calibration (XT32). And it sounds better (tested myself, courtesy of Richer Sounds).
Is it worth me getting the 3300 though? I'm going to continue using my q acoustics 2000 5.1 speakers for the foreseeable future. I have purchased some ceiling speakers too so I can do 5.1.2 when ready.
Do not get open box from RS.
and that's all I'll say

Are these Open-Box customer returns or store demo units? I'm sceptical of customer returns as there's a chance of it being a defective item. Anyone have experience buying an Open Box?

I have this with b&w m1s and rel t9i and sounds wicked. Much better than the onkyo I had that cost £500 before. I paid £500 a year ago and very happy
Will this work well with the mission mx3i floorstanders?

I think so. But when prices adjust with the new models again. You might get a really good price on it. Otherwise this isn't a bad AV at all.
Not an Onkyo

Out of interest which ceiling speakers did you get, I run the Q acoustics 3000 5.1 currently and want to add some ?

I recommend the Kef Ci range
I got the q acoustics ones, forget the exact model, haven't installed them yet though.
Nice if you don't need the Heos support introduced in the newly released X2400H
I currently have a Denon 3312, which was about £975 when I first bought it.

I'm curious, with trickle down tech, how the 3300w would sound in comparison?
Looking at the back I can't see any front pre-outs, is this the case or can some be configured to be front out?

Any reason in particular? Bought the X2300 open box from Richer Sounds last week and it comes with 2 years warranty. Apart from the dried up ketchup on the unit, it seems to be working fine for me. Another branch had one without the remote.

The 1400/2400 has already been announced, 3400 soon I guess. Within a month or so I reckon.

Dammit I was all ready to finally buy this but after reading about the 3300 I'm now going with your idea to wait for it to drop

It's £499 which is a good price
Picked one up at the weekend to complete the TV upgrade suite, now 4K HDR is sorted for the PS4 Pro.

The Denon is a significant improvement over my Sony STR-DN840, I looked at the new DN1080 but given the history with Sony not updating its kit I gave it a wide birth as Denon have committed to Dolby Vision and HGL updates.
Picked one up in the week for £319. RS agreed to knock a tenner off as Peter Tyson were selling it for £329, including an extra year warranty. Paid a total of £350 for the receiver, and 6 year extended warranty.

As far as the receiver goes, wow, a massive improvement on my ageing Yamaha.
Price back to £349
