There's also a Yamaha on offer for £200 that (whilst isn't as good as the Denon, probably) does support dolby vision, for those of you with UHD DV players.
I have the old 520BT version of this. Only difference appears to be the lack of 4K. Excellent bit of kit, and I have always found Denon to be great quality. You don’t necessarily need to have a full 5.1 setup you can just go with a stereo pair to improve the sound as most TV speakers are a bit tinny. I currently have mine paired with Q Acoustics 2020i.
Ordered thanks

I've got the 2400, it has 95w vs 80w for stereo, 4k upscaling, 8 vs 6 HDMI inputs,but pretty much everything else is identical. I wouldn't say the 2400 is worth £70 more though. I'd have got this one had the price difference been the same at time of purchasing. Ended up getting the 2400 for a tenner more than what the 1400 was.

They're passive speakers so no. The AV powers them.


The Sub Woofer is always active so this will power down automatically when not needed.

I would suggest you make the most of a Dolby Atmos enabled receiver and stretch to the Onkyo SKSHT588 5.1.2 (£379 from RS) as a starter package.

You should also consider the Yamaha RX-V583 (£289) as it is similar in spec to the Denon but Yamaha's tend to be more reliable. (Under £670 for a Atmos 5.1.2 system is not bad going.

Pioneer VSX-531-B 5.1AV receiver at Amazon for £169
404°Expired
Found 6th JanFound 6th Jan
Great value entry-level receiver. Available for the same price at RIcher Sounds.
I bought this last May from amazon for this price. Works very well, no problems at all. Set up was very easy with the auto setup, it did good job and found I didn't have to adjust it when I tested it with movies.

Although I don;t have a 4K tv yet I bought this as it does 4K HDR pass through which I couldn't find on any others sub £200 including those from sister company Onkyo. As my current plasma only has 2 HDMI ports I have my blu ray, Sky box and fire stick plugged into it with the Sky box set up for audio pass through for use through the tv when the unit ison standby.

Sound is good, although my surround speakers are are not the best (the other half wouldn't accept any better AV speakers as well as the floor standing Hi Fi ones for the stereo only separates in the living room) and is clear and well placed. For the money and features, this is NOT missing any at its full price point. Only things missing for me would be ATMOS which nothing sub £300 will have and front AV inputs which I didn't want or WiFI which I wasn't bothered about.

Good unit don't think at this price it can be beaten

Nice equipment when it works but when you have to keep on resetting it and then for no reason sound goes, picture goes or the TV speakers are only available instead of the expensive speaker set up it becomes very frustrating.

Theoretically a 4 ohm amp and 4 ohm speaker could allow a full power transition to the speaker. In the real world this never happens as nothing is 100% efficient. Cable resistance (loss) is also another factor.

Got a AVR-X3300 earlier this year, amazing.

I highly recommend the Q Acoustics speakers, I have these:

richersounds.com/q-a…tml

Unless you go higher end, you'll find that you can only have 5.1 with Atmos, i.e. 5.1.2, or 7.1 without - most people agree that 3D 5.1.2 is way better than flat 7.1 surround.

For Atmos you'll need speakers on the ceiling or special Atmos speakers which reflect the sound off the ceiling from below. I went with a pair of Bose cubes mounted on the ceiling and they work well.

You're right, this will probably hit around that in April or so if you can wait. They always drop off when the new model is released. But they sell out fast as the price falls, so you've gotta make a decision when to bite in fear of missing out (and having to wait again, or pay a bit more for the current model). I was in same situation last year too.

Found on Denon site:
"The new AVR-X2400H offers all the winning features of its predecessor the AVR-X2300H, but with greater ability for both home theater and music use. It includes the ultra-precise Audyssey MultEQ XT calibration and set-up system, complete with Denon’s new Audyssey MultEQ Editor app (available for purchase in the Appstores) to allow the user to fine-tune its settings. And it can be used with the HEOS system, thanks to HEOS integration."

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

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?

The wife said make sure it's discrete. This fits the bill, right?


Lol that's exactly why I ended up changing my system to Anthony Gallo as it was the only one that was aesthetically pleasing to her...if she knew it was £2k she'd may have changed her mind

I'm hoping that this is a sign that the receiver might be coming down in price. I've set myself a £400 target on the price of the DN1080 before I buy it. I was hoping that this would happen this side of Xmas but I'm prepared to wait a while if necessary.
For the price you'd expect something a bit more higher quality, like Onkyo.

I meant to say "this post"

My bad!

I'd say unless you need the extra ports, you are good with either.

The former 60W, 5 channel driven, 8 ohms, 20 Hz to 20 kHz, 0.1% THD:The latter being a much more useless rating for higher numbers, 180W, 1 channel driven, 6 ohm, 1 kHzIt doesn't show any values for 20-20 but the X3300W does which I assume is similar to the X3200W. 105W, 2 channel driven, 8 ohm, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08% THD. The Anthem specs are just more honest.


Thats what I was saying, marketing gimmick....Just check the power supply wattage times 0.9 for the efficiency and divide by max channels driven.

My point was that power difference between them is not significant
