Do you have a 5.1 system at the moment? What is your overall budget? To get the best from the 2300 you could really do with better speakers than the denon. Something like the Monitor Audio Radius range would work well with the Denon AVR.

'as need hdr pass through' - are you sure?

Which HDR enabled Sources will you be using?

Could a dedicated HDMI cable cater for your HDR enabled Source direct to the Display?

XB1S - have you tried using its Optical connection to the AVR?

AVR - I'd be tempted to upgrade the AVR (if you want HDR support) and continue to use your current Speakers until your budget allows for a better speaker system.

As above. Change avr and keep current speakers. Or use the budget to upgrade the front 3 for now and then upgrade other speakers as funds allow.

having looked at different models richer sounds seam to advise me to ditch the denon sy2020 and go for the "canton movie 75" which I have never heard of are these any good must be someone on here who knows about these?

Two ways to approach your request - if you are in sales :)

1. Spend the budget no matter what or 2. Advise that the budget is not going to deliver an upgrade (in audio) and with a small budget for new loudspeakers you may end up losing rather than gaining on sound quality.

Once you have 'looked' at budget speaker systems agree with the folk who are recommending/supplying them that you can return them should you not like them - ideally you would go have a listen before you make a decision to purchase (accepted this is not always possible).
