Conclusion: If you read the entirety of this Denon AVR-X4000 receiver review, I bet you could guess what my conclusion will be. This thing rocks! It can do everything I would expect of a $1299 receiver, but doesn’t go too feature happy that it abandons sound quality. In my mind, the AVR-X4000 is definitely worth the extra $300 over the AVR-X3000. With the AVR-X3000 you lose Audyssey MulEQ XT32 & SubEQ HT, zone 3, speaker pre-outs, and are limited to a 7.2 system.
Pros: Listen to network audio and HDMI video simultaneously, HDMI audio for Zone 2 (And Zone 3 if All Zone Stereo is Used), Audyssey MulEQ XT32 & SubEQ HT, Easy to setup and configure
