Good deal on the latest x2x00 model....but the better deal, if you don't need Denon's proprietary HEOS feature, is the Denon X3300 (last year's model)...at $599 today (but sold for $100+ less a couple of months ago). If you can find a deal on the 3300...jump on it.

It's not a better deal if you don't care about the added features of the 3300..everyone's usage varies

I don't care for extra features,. but doesn't the 3300/3400 have better internals and more amps?

EDIT:

here is a good comparison on features and specs:
https://www.crutchfield.com/S-x28...mmand.html

among other things it looks like the 3400 has 10 more watts (rms) and also a few pounds heavier, and Audyssey MultEQ XT32 vs only Audyssey MultEQ (for the 2400)

that happens more with the older Onkyo line, but not so much with them anymore from what i read.

i think it's a good idea to purchase using a credit card that adds an extra 1-year to the warranty with any receiver since almost all receivers produce lots of heat which can lead to failure.

10 more watts rms is irrelevant, you lose heos, and gain xt32. Only the end user can determine if that is worth 50% more of the price...

Wish they had shipping available. I would still wait for 3400 when it goes on sale for additional $100

High end Denon is where it's at. Having used both there are pretty large sonic differences between the two. I'm guessing that to get these as cheap as they are they really skimp on the DAC and Amp section. Which is great because the target market of the receiver is people who use Polk and Klipsh and the like who would never be able to tell the difference anyways.

That said, If you have the extra cash do try to get the highest end unit you can afford. They are VERY nice these days and will last for years.

Good price. They had it at this price back in October. I bought then but returned it when the 3400 was on sale at $488 on Black Friday.

The 3400h for $500 is a great deal and worth the $100 difference, especially for the higher Audyssey. Not sure when that deal will come to Frys again but worth waiting IMO. But this is also a great receiver so if you need one now or can't spend the $100 difference then you will be fine with this one! I have the 730h and was thinking of jumping on this but I'm going to hold off when all the 2017 models are on clearance and get a 3400h as that's a huge jump from what I have now.

How well do 7.2 receivers work for 5.1?

I don't have a place to put any more speakers, and I'm happy with my 5.1 Denon receiver, but I now have 4 4k inputs to my TV, and the receiver doesn't pass through 4k. AFAIK, there's no HDCP 2.2 compatible HDMI switch that would allow me to alos send audio up to the receiver, so I may have to break down and but a new receiver after all. But all of them are 7.2.

heos is included in the 3400 (yes i know the previous poster was talking about the 3300), and that receiver has been $500 in the past if i'm not mistaken.

10 more watts might be irrelevant to some people, but when i go near my max listening level (not the max of the receiver) distortion begins to occur, I would think a more capable receiver i would not have these issues. i guess i will find out once i get a new receiver.

it doesn't make a difference. if a receiver does 7.2, it can easily do 5.1
