I purchased the Denon X2700 last year with the chip issue. Applied for the HDMI box a couple of months ago and heard nothing since. I contacted the retailer I bought the Receiver from and they kindly agreed to swap it out. New one arrived and the Serial number indicates its a 'new' model, i also checked the link to the HDMI switch and the serial number check indicates the HDMI box isn't required, but it will still not pass through 4k at 120hz when checking the settings on the Xbox Series X and various games. Firmware on the receiver is up to date, checked HDMI cables, even bought a new one to try and still no luck. When connecting the Xbox directly to the TV (LGCX65) I am back to 4k @120hz. Gone back to the retailer and they are coming back to me Friday. Also called Denon Tech team and they told me they had no other reports of any issues with their new receivers passing 120hz on the Xbox Series X and everything they advised me to try has not worked. It appears my 'new' model isn't bug free.......
So why aren't you moaning about the TV not having enough compliant inputs? Are you suggesting that an AV receiver is a requisite of owning and using a games console?
There's about 30ms of delay incurred on the video signal passiung through any and all AV receivers. As suggested, it is why serious gamers do not pass the video through an AV receiver and connect their cosoles directly to the display. An AV receiver is effectively an HDMI repeter and not simply passing the video through it. There are also other circuits associated with adding onscreen graphics and menus which are still in effect even if not engaging video processing.
as per sound united they for best compatibility suggest you hook up your console directly to TV and earc full band width audio back to your AVR of choice. you can use a then audio earc sharc if dont have earc... it has ways to battle lip synch as well if falling fowl to that..Sorry if im completely off the mark, im genuinely not clued up on this stuff and just trying to figure out the best way to accommodate my new consoles and tv.
input lag is going to depend on display as well. will see in review below, the A90j in cinema mode can have 150ms lag ! whcih drops to around 10ms in gaming mode whcih engages automatically when i hook up my xbox series XI know im more than likely missing something, but in regards to input lag
@fordster @Dobbyisfree @Hixs
of course DAC matter...they have been selling a product for 8 months with a sound quality and certain "reliability"...that products gets very good reviews..and BAM denon decides to get another chipset that sounds different....does not tell anyone about it (except on DENON japan site...) and does not send review samples to the press ?!!
The V2 DENONs are NOT the SAME as V1 DENONs that is a fact !
the new DAC's are lower grade Burrbrown and older ones compared to the ex AKM! these Burrbrown if i am not mistaking are used by old low grade yamahas (RX-v300/400/500 et v600 series !!!)
so no that is NOT GOOD news !
@Andy Bassett should update this article with this critical info !!! most people are willing to get the hdmi bug version as it has the superior AKM !!!!!
For you finally is the same big beast speaking about AVC-A110?Denons don't disconnect internal amps it just doesn't send a signal to the amplifiers. Doing that increases max pre out voltage
There are no subjective or objectives comparisons between pre hdmi 2.1 akm and lower end dac revision
