Advice on Upgrade
« on: April 26, 2019, 09:57 »
hi i would like to ask for some advice on upgrading my receiver

currently using Denon x4000 and i would like to upgrade to a 4k enabled receiver.
i will be using a projector as well -  the xiaomi mijia 4k.
my speakers are currently 5.1 KEF Qseries

is anyone using the marantz sr5013 would recommend as a capable replacement?
i intend to use the apple tv 4k so i guess no atmos since i'm using plex.

is there any other consideration i should look at for my receiver upgrade?
thank for any advice.

Support all the audio and video formats (e.g. DTS:X, Dolby Vision etc.). I also understand new HDMI standards (2.1) are out but I have not read enough if there will be any impact to the newer model of AVR.

hihi, Q series is nice!

What's the rough budget for the AVR? :) If budget can stretch a bit, get the latest NAD receivers that comes with Dirac Live room EQ. The room EQ is better than Audyssey and helps improve your overall immersion/sound.

I think with higher power rating and better auto EQ, upgrading AVR does make a difference even the number of speakers remain the same.

Is that is the purpose than rather spend $$$ on adding the power amp , surely day & night improvement

I think TS needs 4k capable AVR. The DSP of the new AVR will also play a part. I agree with bro Sevenz if budget is not an issue, go for AVR with Dirac Live.
