    Current setup: Pioneer 428XD, Yamaha RX-V1065, Monitor Audio Radius HD, Zappiti 4k hdr media player, Skyq, netflix, amazon prime

    Hi I am about to purchase a LG OLED and an AV receiver.....need some help choosing a AV receiver, in my current setup I have a Yamaha rxv1065 which I put all the video sources through with one hdmi connection to the tv, I have the AV receiver upscale the video inputs to 1080.

    Anyway with the new setup I want the video sources to go through amp same as current setup but don’t want the AV receiver to upscale or change the video, just pass through and let the tv do the video stuff.

    So I am looking at
    Denon AVR-2400h or AVR-2500h. I am wondering which one to go for and if the 2400 supports all the formats eg hdr that the tv does so I don’t miss out or do I get 2500 for future proof or do u recommend something else.

    Thanks

    Have a look at the two feature sets and see what the newer model brings and then decide if they are important to you and you are prepared to pay the additional cash as last years model will soon be discounted. As for future proofing, there is no such thing in the AV world. There is always something new on the horizon.

    Thanks for quick reply...one more question just to understand how the AV receivers pass the video signal....let’s say the tv supports Dolby vision and the AV receiver doesn’t and I play a Dolby vision video through the receiver.....will it still be able to pass the Dolby vision video through to the tv.......so I don’t loose Dolby vision.

    Hope this makes sense

    Thank

    In that case you would need one HDMI cable to your tv for picture and another HDMI cable to your receiver for sound, AFAIK both models you have mentioned should be getting Dolby Vision update at some point.

    According to Denon, the 2400H is DV and HLG compatible from the factory, but I can see no mention of the 2500H, so perhaps the former is the one you should go for.

    Personally I wouldn’t rely on the ARC for audio, it can be really flakey. I would connect all of the devices to the amp. And connect the amp to your TV. Also until eARC is activated, you will lose the ability to get high bitrate audio such as DTS MA or Dolby Atmos from your media.
