*To get this price you need to order over the phone and ask for a price match, as the website still lists the higher price*

The Denon AVR-X2300W is currently £399 at Richer Sounds, but they advertise that they'll beat any lower price when notified.

Hifonix currently have the same model for £379 - hifonix.co.uk/det…-fi

I rang Richer Sounds on 0333 900 0093 and notified them of the Hifonix price, they matched and then knocked off an extra £5 making it £374. This also makes 6 year supercare slightly cheaper too if you want to add that.

looks nice... I really need to not buy to replace my 6yo Onkyo.

Same here. My onkyo 606 Is still plodding on. Would love to upgrade to something with Wi-Fi enabled capabilities like MusicCast but just can't justify it.

My Onkyo still works great also - a bit disappointed at having to upgrade myself but the Onkyo had no support for 4K - the Denon at least looks fairly future proof with 4K/HDR/HDCP 2.2 on all HDMI inputs, Dolby Atmos and WiFi.

I'm looking for a new amp, seriously tempted by this to replace an old Yamaha! Can anyone suggest any decent alternatives for similar price otherwise I might just take the plunge! How did you get the extra £5 off?

​Richer Sounds will give the extra £5 off automatically as they give up to £100 extra depending on the size of the price match.

Just ordered mine from Hifonix. Not worth faffing around for a fiver, reviews check out 5 star.

Thank you OP. Could anyone recommend good speaker set to match with this

Don't Richer sounds beat a competitors price by £10 in this price range making it £369

Soooo tempted. Not sure how much better it is over my x2000 though, but nearly bought it at 399 on Black Friday... I suspect if it was an online link I'd have bought it by now... talking to a real person always puts me off...

​I think the attraction is really in the cheap 6 yr warranty, but I know what you mean.

That's correct.

I got this for just under 800 with speakers I think

This will be a different class to your cheap onkyo, I recommend this or a Sony!

Also ordered this from RS today, can't go wrong with this AV Receiver tbh. I already had £25 off though as they did a deal, so couldn't get them to return more with price match. Worth a try I guess.

I was thinking the same... But no hdr on my one and loads of extra ports on this one tempting me!

I have a new panny uhd with an old Sony amp and speakers. Sound is good/great

Everything is connected via oneconnect and I only use amazon uhd and Netflix uhd.

I don't intend to ever really use blu ray again.

Will this amp provide superior sound for me? Everything is on ARC.

The Sony is about 10 years old, will this denon be a big step up? What speakers are recommended, something compact ?

Budget?

I bought this for 399 last month. Got it paired with a samsung 65" 7000 series and 7.2 from kef, It sounds great and is certainly future proof for the next five or six years at the least.
Similar to what some prosepective buyers on this thread have put, I upgraded to this from an onkyo for the 4k. I am so pleasantly surprised by the quality of the sound, nobody will be dissapointed and at this price it is too cheap not to if you are in the market.

Don't be silly, audio doesn't take downsizing well.

My current receiver is around 22KG, transformer alone weights as much as this crap.

Thanks OP. Price should be changed to £369. I added the 6 year supercare on top as I was going to pay the £400 anyway before I seen this.

Cheers OP! Bought! Got the extra warranty too so should be good listening for 6 years! They also took the extra £10 off

Probably the first time I've seen somebody argue weight as an indication of quality of sound on an AV receiver, I actually let out a little giggle when I saw your post. Thanks for the entertainment.

What's with the onkyo remarks. My old onkyo 606 kicks ass. Can't see this being any 'better' sound wise but obviously may sound 'different'

I also have a rock solid ONKYO and it's been doing the business for years. I'm in a similar position. I don't need to upgrade but this is sorely tempting me!!! Just bought a new Samsung UE55KS7000 in the Black Friday sales ... can I justify the spend?

Personally if I was going to get a new AV receiver id go for the yam 681 at 399 which is the lowest I've ever seen it.

This one or the PIONEER VSX1131? The pioneer has ProLogic IIx I don't think this does? Is this an important feature? Also I intend to connect it to my bose cube speakers will they be a good match? Any advice will be helpful guy.

I've always gone for Yamaha AV receivers, would of gone for the 681 today if it wasn't for the fact only 3 of the HDMI connections are HDMI 2.0 / HDCP 2.2. While strictly not a big deal, does seem strange.

My mate bought that Yamaha and it seemed as though the sound struggled at loud volumes. Not tried this Denon but he bought the Pioneer and has not looked back.

Personally i've never had a bad Yamaha AV Receiver, it the 8 odd years of owning them. All been tops.

I only went for the Denon due to the Yamaha having limited HDMI 2.0 ports.

Hot! Have a 4100w with Monitor Audio Silvers, and its incredible. Far better than my old Onkyo TXNR 626. wasn't impressed with the Onkyo at all, sound was too harsh, surround didn't have as good as depth as my old Yamaha either, ran stupid hot, had to get repaired once where it started smoking! Replaced with the Denon AVRX4100w and it was a world or difference, surround was far more engaging, music was warmer and well rounded. Plus its zone functions work far better.
Denon all the way for me now.

I have a Sony Str dg 820 with Jamo a102?? I think speakers. What would this do for me? Would it be useful or a big improvement? Bear in mind, I haven't researched amplifiers since buying the Sony

like others, upgraded to this from a basic onkyo. finding it a bit quiet in comparison. though had to upgrade for Wi-Fi and dual HDMI out.

7 HDMI Inputs, now that is great

​This amp is one of the best reviewed in the market right now

Yeah I see the good reviews . But what can it do that my Sony can't? Would I hear the difference?

Dang - When i looked this AM, Hifonix has put the price back up to £399.
I really wanted to take advantage of this as my trusty Onkyo has just died of the common HDMI board failure.
