The new-in-box X4000 had a bad network card-UPDATE

Gator, Amazon
3 July 2014
  • Summary: The new-in-box X4000 had a bad network card, so no Airplay, IPOD or updates. Denon has relatively few service centers, with the nearest being 5+ hours away or a $60 shipping bill. The response from Denon was "send it back and wait a few weeks for repair or live with it". I guess I'll live with it, as taking it down would shut down my house's video and audio entertainment for several weeks. This is poor QC on Denon's part as they apparently don't test their equipment.

Don't buy this receiver

Mark W, Crutchfield
21 February 2014
  • Summary: This receiver shuts itself off intermittently, goes into protect mode. My second trip to authorized repair ended when, without any notice, a box was delivered to my door with fedex asking for my signature. When I opened the box I found a refurbished unit. the authorized repair people must have contacted Denon and they just sent the refurbished unit without any communication with me.
  • Pros: when it doesn't work how do you write pros?
  • Cons: horrible rate of failures should be pulled off the market

No Joy Yet

JimS, Crutchfield
1 November 2013
  • Summary: First unit arrived promptly but proved to be defective. Crutchfield offered replacement without any hassle, but delivery of this unit has been ponderously slow via UPS so I'm still waiting.
  • Pros: Sounded good prior to repetitive shutdowns. Initial set up went smoothly.
  • Cons: Play... shutdown. Play.....shutdown. Play.....shutdown. Ultimately it would shutdown with nothing connected. Web survey now suggests that others have experienced similar problems with the X4000. I hope the replacement works as advertised if and when it is delivered.

Disappointed - too late to return it though

Anonymous, Crutchfield
19 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this unit in July and in October the unit shut down while using it and would not power up again. It went continually into protect mode. After working with Denon tech support (this happened just after Crutchfield's 2-month return policy) and was told I had to bring the receiver to a local Denon repair shop to get it repaired. A three-month old receiver! The authorized repair shop fixed a bad solder joint on internal connector CN203.
  • Pros: Plenty of connections, including very good multi-zone support Internet connection and streaming pandora/XM-Sirius/etc works well Feature rich, about as many features as you can find at this price point
  • Cons: Unit needed factory repair after only three months. That is just pathetic. The power of this unit may be disappointing to you if you are replacing another beefy-drive receiver The remote is only semi-useful. No backlight. Use the iphone/ipad app for configuration changes.

Soviele Montage gab es gar nicht wie DENONs X4000 als Montagsgerät auftaucht

Martin Erl, Amazon
10 November 2014
  • Summary: Eins vorneweg. Wenn der AVR X4000 funktioniert, dann klingt er richtig gut! Dummerweise hat das meiner so gut wie gar nicht gemacht. Das Gerät war knapp ein halbes Jahr im Einsatzt und muss nun zurückgeschickt werden, da gar nichts mehr geht. - Bereits zu Beginn hatte ich Probleme beim Anschluß von Laptops/Computern. Obwohl 1080p eingestellt war, kam nur ein schwammiges Bild zustande. Nur 720p funktionierte.

Vergleich AVR-3313 mit X4000

Ralf, Amazon
1 May 2014
  • Summary: ich habe momentan den Vorgänger AVR-3313 und wollte mir den X4000 leisten, da dieser von DENON mit einem besseren Bassmanagement, speziell bei Anlagen OHNE Subwoofer, beworben wird. Leider musste ich feststellen, dass das wohl nur eine "Werbeaussage" ist, da der Bass beim X4000 sogar BEDEUTEND geringer produziert wird und zwar in Pegel und Tiefgang. Ich denke, dass das an dem neuen Audyssey MultEQxt32 liegt.

HDMI Probleme und Instabilitäten

MK, Amazon
27 November 2013
  • Summary: Nachdem ich lange gesucht und recherchiert habe und eigentlich durchweg nur positive Stimmen zum Denon finden konnte, bin ziemlich enttäuscht von dem Gebotenen. == HDMI == Ich wollte den X4000 benutzen um meine HDMI- und analogen Zuspieler (PS3, AppleTV, MacMini, Wii, N64, NES) einerseits per HDMI auf meinem Beamer (Panasonic PT-AX100e) wiederzugeben (Main Zone) und andererseits in einem anderen Zimmer an einen zweiten AV-Verstärker (Sony) zu übergeben um dort die...

Raimund Scheiber "raisch", Amazon

  • Summary: Hier eine kurzer Überblick meines Systemes: Ausgang: 1 x Sony KDL-X3500, 1 x Projektor Hitachi PJ-TX100 Eingang: 1 x Dreambox DM8000, 1 x BlurayPlayer Samsung, 1 x WII U, 1 x Media-PC mit XBMC Alle Geräte sind mit HDMI-Kabel angeschlossen. Schon beim Einrichten ist mir aufgefallen, dass beim Umschalten der Eingänge der Bildschirm dunkel geblieben ist. Erst dachte ich mir noch nichts dabei, da ich ja noch nicht fertig war.
