All your AV equipment ( usually Bluray , TV box) is connected to this amp via HDMI and then the amp is connected to your TV , HDMI too. This amp , if it works the same as my Marantz (same company) ,upscales regular HD TV picture to 4K. The resulting picture is really good and much better than the TV's attempt to upscale. This feature is only any good if you have a 4K TV but plenty have now a days.

On a £329 amp I’d doubt that unless your talking of a really cheap TV.
Their on the way down. Just another £30 to go and we are at the same price as the AVRX2300 model was last year. £299. From what I've read the old 2300 and current 2400 models are pretty much identical.

Maybe some Easter deals coming on these...

Or get it for £299 from Richersounds.
Damn it, took too long submitting the deal and someone beat me to it!

Will this work with Sonos 1's?
Have some heat - I just upgraded my speakers and discovered I managed to lose my optimiser microphone - d'oh!
Just a word of warning these dont upconvert from Analogue signals to HDMI. Not entirely sure what the point of putting all those composite/component connectors on the chassis TBH.

Obviously only a concern for those that might use such feature!

Excellent Denon product and they made in Vietnam.
Shame the richer sounds price seems to be in store only.
Ive got previousl model and it's soooo good with Tannoy speakers, beware, may cause arguments with neighbour.

So you need a 4k available receiver to play 4k content if your 4k tv plays through it? At present, I've got a 1080p av receiver and am looking to get a 4k tv, Netflix 4k etc. If I connect these up to my 1080p av reciver, the image won't be 4k despite the source and TV being compatible?

If your AV receiver has 'pass through' it may work but not 100% sure. I use 4K Netflix through an app on my TV so the picture doesn't go through the AV Receiver , only the sound.

Cheaper at Richer Sounds or you can get it with a 6 year guarantee at that price. In-store only though.

Ok, so if I want to buy a 4k blu ray player, I will have to get a 4k av receiver. I can get amazon 4k fire tv which I'll plug into the back of the TV and just do optical out for the sound

You could still get 4K picture from a 4K Bluray by connecting direct to the TV any way. No need for a separate connection for TV sound to the amp as it uses the HDMI so the Bluray player sound would still go through the amp via the TV.Same goes for an Amazon TV stick. If it was me I'd rather invest in a new 4K AV receiver that upscales first before buying a 4K Bluray player. If you have a Richer Sounds nearby they'll give you plenty of advice on what works with what.

Thanks mate. Ok, just another question if you don't mind, if I was to buy a 4k av receiver do you have any suggestions. Im thinking around the 500 mark - the Marantz N6107 is apparently the go to according to some reviews?

The only thing is, TVs often do a rubbish job of enabling ARC and you end up constantly having to turn it on manually.

The receiver really needs to support HDCP 2.2 to pass through 4K from any modern device such as a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X, as such I would say yes you really do want to get a new receiver. Look carefully though, this supports HDCP 2.2 on all HDMI ports, the lower Denon AVR-X540BT supports it on 3 of the 5 HDMI inputs. My old Sony STR-DN1050 didn't support it at all and was marketed as 4K, technically it was but as it didn't support HDCP 2.2 it wouldn't pass through 4K from my consoles.

What av receiver would you suggest mate then for solely 4k content? I was just reading up on reviews for the Sony str dn1080 - seems to have good reviews but If you've had a bad experience with the previous version, maybe it's not a good idea?

The Sony does tend to come top of the price bracket with each revision when released, however it takes longer to get a good price drop. This was released at £500 and is now £300 at Richer Sounds, the Sony was £550 I believe and is now around £430. My issue with the 1050 was specifically that it wasn't HDMI 2.2, and I don't like that the 1060 was not updated to support Atmos when it was generally accepted to be capable of it and other cheaper receivers from other manufacturers were having Atmos enabled via update after hitting the market. However in terms of sound quality, the Sony is great and the 1080 does support Atmos and HDCP 2.2. I bought my Sony 1050 refurbished for around £250 and sold it a year later for the same so I can't really complain.

In terms of what to buy, personally I'd probably go for this right now from Richer Sounds if you can for £299 plus the 6 year warranty for an extra £30, plus it will hold it's value for a bit, if you don't like it, you can probably get the £300 back in six months time or even a year.

What the heck! I have this amp but had no idea it upscaled to 4K. Have been watching sky etc at 1080p!

a few q’s:

1. I assume it’ll only upscale content that isn’t already 4K (eg it won’t mess with my Xbox one X signal? Does it introduce lag if the feature is enabled?

2. Is the upscaling noticeable and any good
Thanks mate for that info!

The Marantz I have makes a very noticeable difference to the quality of 720p and 1080p when it upscales them. It just upscales automatically any video content connected to it by HDMI. I'm no expert on HiFi and the like but do my homework when I'm ready to upgrade. Any one know where I can get cheap pair of Dolby Atmos Speakers? Had my AV Receiver nearly a year now and would like to try out it's Atmos caperbilities butbspeakers are so expensive.

Not exactly what you were thinking: "any customer who purchases one of the AV Receivers will receive 10% off the next HEOS purchase they make." They appear to be intentionally misleading.

Yes, I would like to know that. I presume this deal is only for the AV receiver... Are floor standing speakers appropriate/can be used for this? Would something like this be sufficient for the front two: qacoustics.co.uk/q-a…tml i.e. next to the tv and then buy separate bookshelf speakers for the rear and below the tv?

Floorstanders will work fine. Yep that sounds good. You might need a subwoofer.
