Sorry if this was already posted--I did do a search and the only recent thread that came up for the X4200W was the one from April.

Looks like the X4200W is on sale again this week (5/15 - 5/21) with Fry's promo code:

Denon X4200W

Accessories4Less [accessories4less.com] has manufacturer refurbs of this model for $899, so $897 for a new unit is an excellent price for an AVR with Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room correction. MultEQ XT32 is a huge upgrade from regular MultEQ or MultEQ XT. The XT32 version actually does what room correction is supposed to do, without any apparent negative side effects.

Not knocking this receiver, as I bought it back in April during the last Fry's promo code deal for it, but...I do notice that after running Audyssey on it the rear surrounds seem to run a wee bit louder (i.e., I definitely can hear them), at least when compared to back when I was using my Denon 3808ci; other folks have reported similar as well. I suppose I can just rerun Audyssey and hope for better results or just drop the levels down a wee bit on the rears.

Also--some folks report slightly-muddled center-channel sound with the X4200W--again, it could be an Audyssey setup thing; the common corrective suggestion is to ensure that your center channel is angled/aimed toward your head and that your fronts are towed in towards the main listening position (yes I realize that this may not be possible with ceiling speakers) before running Audyssey.

I think the muddled sound may be attributable to the dynamic eq, which increases the midbass to supposedly compensate for our skewed hearing sensitivity when listening at less than reference level.

I believe audyssey flat setting with dynamic eq and volume off should give flat response at position where mic was at during setup.

I think Onkyo RZ900 for $847 is a much better deal.

Let the AVR debates begin Smilie

My brother has the RZ900 and loves it, especially for music with monster towers in a decent room.

I'm dealing with an acoustically terrible room and a bookshelf 5.1/2-sub system. I've had the X3200 (Frys $499 deal) for a 1-2 weeks and a SC-95 ($850 BB Open Box deal(SC-91 was enough for my needs but sold out locally) for a few days and like certain things about both. The X3200 has a deep 'Avengers' movie type rumble I can't replicate on the SC-95(close but not there with tons of tweaking 1 or 2 subs) and the SC-95 excels (to my ears) with music especially at louder volumes. Based on a very weak Magnolia demo comparison, I hope the X4200 will be do the best of both...and then some. Had to call the store direct(website toast), but now have 1 on hold and hope to find out in a few days.

Should we be trusting e-transactions with a company that can't even keep they're website up and running???
As mentioned before, FRYS.com is again/still "toast."

This is a good receiver. My dad and I own the TX-RZ900 and my opinion about build quality is that the Onkyo is better because it hardly heats up and it does not struggle in higher volumes. The main advantage of this Denon is the Audyssey that people are after. I just don't trust this Denon model because the company has moved production to different facilities. I'd only trust the 6200 or 7200 model which are made in Japan.
The Pioneer SC-95 is supposedly made in Japan too. That unit is supposedly great too, but I don't know how it sounds or calibrates. We have been pretty happy with the RZ900 and it performs so well with either music of movies.

June the deals will roll out, as these will be obsolete with the new models. Denon changes models in June.

I got a Denon the last time deal came around at under $900 you can't beat it. I have had zero issues. I wish it was made in Japan, but I wouldn't sacrifice Audessey for it. If someone wants a top built receiver look at Anthem. I have always used Paradigm Speakers and they are great. The Anthem receivers are supposed to be just as good if not better.

How do you know this is the model? On mine it says you have to ask an associate?

Also, if you know this model, please provide the lesser costing receiver they are offering please

I ended up with the Pioneer SC-95 open box from Magnolia for $750 out the door. I will be running it in a 7.2.4 setup. Just need to choose an external amp to run my RTI-A9s and CSI-A6 up front. Leaning towards an Emotiva amp. Just not sure if I want to go new and get the Gen3 modular unit or pick something up used in a 5 channel so I can bi-wire the towers.
