    Denon X4500h... or stretch more for NAD or Arcam with Dirac Live?

    I'm close to pulling the trigger on a Denon X4500h. On paper it ticks all my boxes - Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, up to 5.1.4 (I'd do 5.1.2 first then expand later), Dolby Vision, good HDMI connectivity. Though I'm not fussed about multi-room capabilities or HEOS. It seems to be available for around £800...
