    Initial thoughts: Fantastic receiver!
    Review of Denon AVR-X3300W AV Receiver by tomstephens89, Jan 17, 2017.
    I purchased the AVR-X3300W recently as an upgrade from the excellent AVR-X1200W. I have had it hooked up for a few days now and my initial thoughts go something like this:

    WOW! The depth and clarity in sound this thing produces brings both films and music to life like i've never heard before.

    I have it connected to a set of Wharfedale Diamond 230's for the front, 220's for the rear, 220c for the center and a BK P12-300SB sub.

    As I havn't owned it for long, I can only give initial thoughts which I have outlined below:

    • Set up procedure was quick and easy, the audyssey EQ completed quickly and produced excellent results. Sound is very articulate and clear, whilst still packing a good punch.
    • 4k HDR passthrough works flawlessly, the latest HDMI and HDCP standards are fully supported on all HDMI ports.
    • The on screen menu navigation is quicker and more fluid than the X1200W.
    • Streaming via spotify connect or FLAC from my Foobar2000 PC works as expected.
    • Sound in films is by far the most detailed and exciting I have ever heard. Its not just loud, its very dynamic and precise.
    • Playing back music in stereo is a pleasure. So much so that this will now become my main music player.
    So thats my review. Its only my initial thoughts as I havn't owned it for long, but like I say... So far I am very impressed and its obvious what a step up this is from the AVR-X1200W.
    This item was purchased for £599 from Richer Sounds in 2017. The reviewer still owns this product.
