The back of the X4200 shows connectors for Front Wides. To me that means DSX, correct?

I am not fortunate enough to have towers. I have all in-ceiling which means no 3D sound, Atmos, etc.

The best that I can do is run a 6.2 system with Wides,



.
I don't know that having connectors labeled Front Wides necessarily means that it has DSX, especially now that Front Wide is a position for Atmos, and I believe other upmixers are able to extract a front wide. Either way, the X4200 does have DSX.

I didn't think about that. I guess Atmos does have Front Wides


Thanks

I am putting everything in place for 7.2.4 for my home theater and was not expecting to see something this affordable this soon.
This will definitely be a contender when it comes time to make a purchase.

I like the idea of the 2016 models that will have the Audyssey app.
I can't wait to hear more about this, it sounds like individual channel tweaking could be an awesome feature.

Same here, very glad to see some good options to look at, even if they are from the same parent company.

Can some one guide us here any real life differences between Marantz and Denon AVR 4300 piece

zibawal, I have been looking at both, and I am leaning towards the Marantz at the moment. For me, they were pretty much the same offering, but there are a lot of extra features that I don't really think I'll use.

Technically, the 6011 is the sister model to Denon's x3300, and the 7011 is the sister to the Denon x4300. I think they're not really on par, but that's the corporate lineup.

The 6011 has 9 amp channels while the x3300 only has 7, which is a big difference. and the 7011 is the big boy of the Marantz lineup, but it still only has 9 channels, while the Denon 6300 has 11 channels onboard. Marantz doesn't offer an 11 channel (amplified) receiver.

Between the 6011 and the 4300, the Denon is rated for 15 more wpc, its HEOS wireless system, and carries an extra $100 on the MSRP. There are probably some other small differences, but those were the ones I found at a quick comparison.

The big reason for me to go with a 2016 model over the previous year is only the addition of the new Audyssey app (which has very little information released) allowing you to tweak the individual channels. This feature is only on the new models, otherwise I'd probably go for a 7009 or 7010 or a Denon 6200 at a nice discount.
