It is even ready for Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) for 3D audio broadcast over TV.


The AVR-X3400H features the most advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room acoustic measurement system including Audyssey Dynamic Volume, Dynamic EQ, LFC and SubEQ HT. Through these technologies, and with the supplied microphone, it exactly analyses each speaker's output to optimize the overall listening experience.


The AVR's DSP (Digital Sound Processor) chip features tremendous processing power with 4 300-MHz DSP cores that can process over 1 billion computations per second.


The AVR-X3400H's built-in HEOS technology allows you to stream your favourite music wirelessly around your home to any other HEOS speaker.


The AVR-X3400H is equipped with a range of features to provide enhanced control capabilities and compatibility with 3rd party and custom integration solutions including Crestron Connected. It can be set up and operated by a home computer on the network via IP control, either via wired LAN connection or Wi-Fi. For direct connection to external home automation and control equipment, it's also equipped with an RS-232C serial port. For simpler integrated control set-ups, the AVR-X3400H features an IR (infrared) remote control input on the rear panel, allowing remote control compatibility with other components in your home theatre system.

So, possibly a stupid question. Could I hook up a bunch of inputs to this (multiple consoles, Sky box, CD player etc) and then output sound to a soundbar via HDMI/optical?

I know it wouldn't get the best out of the unit by a long way, but I'd need to save up for a bit before buying a full set of speakers. Is the method I've outlined possible in the interim?

It doesn't have an optical out, but I dont see any reason why it shouldn't work via HDMI.

However it might be worth looking at other alternatives if all you need is an optical switch.....the technology in AVRs is updated soooo fast these days, and they depreciate massively. (My 4 year old £1k Pioneer is now worth less than £150) If you are going to be getting a full suite of speakers in the next 3 months, go for it, but if more than six months, it would probably be worth looking into HDMI switches, or a second hand but much older AVR, eg a Denon 1911 could be picked up for £50-£75 (but won't pass through 4k if you need that).

fwiw, a set of speakers to do this justice will be £1k to £2.5k. Of course it will work with lesser speakers, but you could use a much cheaper AVR and not notice the difference.

Very useful, thanks. Think I'll wait until I can afford amp and speakers at the same time and see where technology is at that point rather than trying to increment my way towards the end state
