Hello, I am in a bit of a pickle and would really appreciate some help and advice. First here is my setup: TV: Sony 65XE9305 Front speakers: KEF Q500 floor standers Center speaker: KEF Q200 Subwoofer: B&W ASW610 Surround speakers: Q Accoustics 2010i (6 Ohm) Plan to buy Atmos speakers KEF Q50q in August Consoles: Xbox One X, PS4 Pro (plus older consoles) BD: Oppo 103D Here what happened so far: I bought a Denon 4400H from PT and traded in my old Denon 3311 back in March. I had problems with the HDR passthrough when gaming. I bought new cables, spoke to Denon, followed their troubleshooting for this issue but to no avail. To get a picture when gaming I had to de-activate HDR on the Sony TV, then everything was fine but that defeats the main purpose of having a HDR TV and the consoles. Then I got the amp repaired through PT for free. The HDMI board was exchanged. However, I encountered the same problem and then sent it back to PT and got my money back. As I always liked Denon and the 4400H is all I need and want (eARC but more about this later) I (maybe foolishly) ordered ad new Denon 4400H from PT and hoped that it would be different this time. Well, it wasn't. I've only had the amp for a week so I can send it back and I will but what to get instead? I might also be a bit confused about eARC. Maybe someone can confirm: eARC supports Dolby Atmos (among other things) but this is only necessary if I watch something from an app on the TV, correct? If I watch a movie using a BD player that can do Dolby Atmos eARC is not of importance, correct? Back to the receivers. I need to buy from PT because I traded in my old amp and I was happy so far with them. They have been helpful. I shortlisted the following candidates and would be very grateful if someone could help me which one to choose. 1. Marantz SR7012 (£999) I am aware that this shares a lot with the Denon and that could be a problem with HDR passthrough again. 2. Onkyo TX-RZ830 (£1099) 3. Yamaha RX-A2070 (£1070) I somehow find the remote a bit strange though. 4. Pioneer SC-LX701 (£949) 5. Yamaha RX-A3070 (£1399) This is the least preferred option due to price. If this amp is so much better than the other 4 above I could stretch to that price. I mostly do gaming, the odd movie (BD or Amazon Prime) and no TV. I also don't listen to music with the amp if that helps in helping me. Many thanks in advance for any help and thanks for reading.
