Not sure if its really hot, may be warm at $399.

S920 at $379.

Edit: price can be lowered to $350 if you speak to a sales rep. I got it adjusted. YMMV though.

They also have it new for $650.

I'm going to get a Yamaha for my basement as the last Denon I bought bricked within 6 months, and the warranty required me paying $100 each way to ship it to the US for repair. I ended up donating the god damn thing. Yamaha is known to have the best reliability and a long warranty.

I also paid $349 back on December. And same as most people say you can't tell it's not brand new. I'm very happy with it and would pay $399 for sure.

How is X1400H compared to S920W?

Denon makes great electronics, but their HEOS streaming technology is a joke. If you only use spotify, you're okay, but it barely works with anything else. No Google play music, no Apple Music. Their app is the biggest piece of junk (I thought the Sonos app was bad). HEOS tried to compete with Sonos, but fell far short.

Looks like a good deal for the receiver though!

How about the HEOS wireless speaker support? Any experience with that?

I was looking at a Denon and adding wireless HEOS rear speakers.

I don't have any experience with the wireless speakers, just the HEOS amps. But if the experience is anything like the equipment I used, I'd say stay away. I'd recommend visiting an electronics store that has a live demo available to see exactly how they work. The amps forced you to use their app and had no support for Google Cast or Apple Music which seems ridiculous for a high priced piece of equipment.

Thank you. I've never owned Denon before, I was an Onkyo guy since the 80's, but the reliability of their amps has me now looking elsewhere. Maybe I'll look into the Yamaha w/ MusicCast

Great price. I picked up a B-Stock 1400h for $100 more six months ago, and it's doing great. The best price I've seen on the x1300 is $329, just FYI.

They make nice stuff. I had several Sony ES receivers, but couldn't find one of the newer models at a price I like, ended up grabbing an X4400H over the holidays for around 1100, it's pretty exceptional. Sony's GUI is more polished, but Denon's is nicely laid out.
My nick doesn't mean I'm happy any more than yours means you're a sex machine.

I owned a Denon previously, but i wasn't happy with it. The sound seemed weak in comparison to my previous Pioneer receiver and the remote was a mess. Granted that was like 10 years ago ... I also have a Denon Piccolo which works well, but has certain quirks like not being able to go into sleep mode properly.

Anyways, went back to Pioneer although there are a lot of tempting Denon deals.

depending on what you are looking for - I would check your local Best Buy.

I was able to pick up 2 displays models recently for $500 each - Denon X4300H and Marantz SR6011

This is extremely YMMV as they were clearance models but it doesn't hurt to check.

Tried this Denon out but decided to return for a sony.
I recently got the Sony STR DN1080 and I am absolutely loving it. Not as seamless as my Sonos when connecting to my phones (iPhone) but pretty damn close.
The TV GUI alone is worth the price of admission.
Just saying so you can audition the Sony and add to your list of choices.

Haven't had issues with my 4431ci but it's time to update along with my tv (b7 oled).. So I've decided to go with the x2400h b stock.. Got it last Sunday for 599. I was considered the x1400h but I'd rather have the extra features.

Which one would be a comparable Pioneer to this Denon?
