Hi. I’m planning to upgrade from my DENON x2200w avr. I’m running a paradigm speakers set in 5.1. Planning to add atmos in ceiling speakers. What’s the review on the pioneer Avr series. How would it sound paired to paradigm monitor 9s compared to DENON ?

Pioneer has recently introduced VX LX 503 and not yet updated the SC LX 701 series. SC LX 701 is quite old ( 2 - 3 Yrs) model where as Denon AVR x4400h is 2018 model equipped with latest technologies like Heos, Aura and have advanced calibration system. Pioneer runs lot cooler than Denon. Can store multiple speakers calibration settings.No individual cutoff frequency for each channel ( not sure) .Wait for SC LX 703 arrival else look for Pioneer VX LX 503, Yamaha A-1070/2070 and Marantz SR 6012/7012 and are the closest competitors for Denon AVR x4400h.

Whats your budget? If you are looking at Marantz...rather than buying the SR6012 / SR7012...you can look at the SR6011/7011 which have almost same functionalities / features barring the latest gimmicks...you may get these a bit cheaper...

Bottomline...audition and decide...

the denon avrx4400 is a sweet beast, it compares with the Marantz SR 7012 not the 6012.

Its a tough choice between the SR7012 & X4400. If home theatre is your thing then denon any day but if you listen to music more often then go for marantz.

I was going back and forth between 4400H and 7012....they are pretty much the same...like insane79 said. Denon for movies and Marantz for movies and music

If budget is a constraint then 6013 is another option....6013 vs 7012...THD 0.08% vs 0.05% and 100 vs 125 RMS power...both are 9.2
