Black Friday Deal today only In store with today's Promo Code

The Denon AVR - x3300W is on sale for $479 today In Store Only at Fry's B&M stores.

http://images.frys.com/art/email/...54692#set3

This is the lowest price that it has ever been. Previous low price was $539 about a month ago and $549 two months ago. I got one when it was $549 and love it.

It features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 which is their highest version of Audyssey Room Calibration plus Sub EQ HT which calibrates two subs individually.

x3300w features
:
7-channel amplifier
105 watts per channel into 8 ohms (20-20,000 Hz) at 0.08% THD, with 2 channels driven
Dolby® and DTS® surround sound decoding
Dolby Atmos processing for use with in-ceiling or "height" speakers for more enveloping home theater sound
DTS:X for an immersive, 3-dimensional soundstage (available via firmware update)
analog-to-HDMI video conversion
upscales standard-definition video signals to HD and Ultra HD (up to 4K)
Audyssey MultEQ XT32 speaker calibration and system optimization
Sub EQ HT for dual sub calibration
7.1 preouts for adding an external amp
Dual HDMI outputs which can either mirror the main HDMI out or you can play two separate HDMI sources simultaneously. I do this all the time when watching sports on weekends on two TVs. Great feature.

MSRP on this receiver is $999. Amazon and Crutchfield currently have it at that price.

Now the inevitable "How does this compare to...:?"

Denon x2300, s920, s720, x1300? The X3300W has the highest version of Audyssey Room Calibration XT32. The x2300 and x1300 use MultEQ XT which is one huge step below XT32 while the s720 and s920 use Audyssey MultEQ which is two steps below XT32.

The x2300 has dual HDMI out but only mirrors the same source.

How does it compare to the Yamaha TSR-7810 on sale at Costco under $500?

Both receivers have 7.1 preouts, Atmos, DTS:X, dual HDMI out, etc. But the dual HDMI outputs on the TSR-7810 are one source only like the x2300. Can't display separate HDMI sources simultaneously like the x3300 can.

Denon x3300W uses Audyssey MultEQ XT 32 while Yamaha uses their own YPAO calibration. I feel the Audyssey calibration is better.

x3300 all 8 HDMI inputs are HDCP 2.2 and HDR capable. Yamaha 7810 only has 3 HDCP 2.2 HDR capable inputs and 6 HDMI total.

How does it compare to the Yamaha RX-V679 which is on sale for $299? No comparison in my opinion as the 679 does not do Atmos, DTS:X, no does it have 7.1 preouts or dual monitor outs.

Whether any of these feature advantages matter is up to the buyer.

Since it is Black Friday stores are crowded so don't know how long they'll be in stock. Good luck!

I'd like to add that I've owned this receiver for about 6 months and it's fantastic. There is a little bit of a learning curve when setting up all of your devices but once you get it up and running you can forget about it.

Some have complained about the HDMI ports going bad due to heat, to remedy this I purchased a USB powered dual 80mm fan setup [amazon.com] from Amazon that I have placed on the exhaust grated on top. I also have an exhaust system that pushes hot air from my cabinet. The heat from my cabinet has never been higher than 85 or 90f. This includes a DirecTV receiver, Xbox One, the Denon receiver as well as an Nvidia Shield.

Another cool thing is that my Amazon Echo connects via Bluetooth and all commands can be routed through the speakers in my ceiling.

Onkyo RZ610 or the AVRX3300?

Picked up the Onkyo a week ago when it was $400 - Have a KEF KHT3005 speaker set I am powering.. worth the extra $80 to grab the Denon?

I'm not entirely sure. I just used the code in my email and at the end of checkout found that there was a tax promotion. I'm in California. Total came out to $479.00.

Onkyo RZ610 doesn't have 7.1 preouts, only 3 HDCP HDR capable inputs, the dual monitor outs are only same source, the AccuEQ calibration not in same league with Audyssey MultEQ XT32.

I certainly would not trade my x3300 for the RZ610 to save money.
