    I think that looks a perfect, well matched setup. The AVR will have everything you need, and won’t let you down.

    Make sure you take the time set up the Audyssey XT correctly, there are lots of guides so you don’t make some common mistakes. I.e. Set up for ALL Mic. Positions with up to 60cm from the MLP. And set your Crossovers to 80Hz as a minimum, but never lower than what Audyssey recommends and the Denon sets.

    You have the option of buying the Audyssey App if you want to fully tune to your preferences.

    You have not said what sources are feeding this, but a BR player for HD sound, making sure you always check the Sound formats are correctly selected and if Atmos is available, that you select that Sound mode. Use the Display to check for correct Inputs and Outputs.

    Best of luck, enjoy it. Don’t have buyers remorse before you even start

    Those sources will be fine and fit in with your system.

    http://www.willowville.net/ht/Audyssey Setup Guide.pdf was the guide I was referring to....
