I have no issues with with arc or HDR using a PS4 pro, Denon X3600 and a 2017 65” LG OLED. Have you checked your settings on all devices? I seem to recall there being a few things you have to switch on like RGB 10 bit colour etc... so that might effect HDR. Also I have read that Apple TV can be very fussy when it comes to HDMI cables (I don’t have Apple TV myself). Thinking about it, when I 1st got my PS4 I had issues with the image dropping out. I think my old cables were HDMI 1.4, I bought some reasonably priced 2.0 cables off amazon (1 between the PS4 and receiver and another from the receiver to the tv) and it’s never been an issue since.Hi,
I have a dn 1080 and I have problems with cec, dolby vision in apple tv, etc.
I want to change avr and I´m inclined to buy the x3600.
my system is:
LG oled 55B6V
Sony dn 1080
Apple Tv 4K
5.1 monitor audio speakers (2x mr4, 2xmr2, 1xmrc + subwoofer)
if I upgrade to a x3600, no more problems/issues?
I just created an owner's thread:I do like the overall surround experience created from stereo sources by Dolby Surround so is there anything I should be doing to make this work a bit better?
Posting here as I didn't see an x3600h owners thread yet.
If the amp says Atmos then it is receiving an Atmos signal. It is the receiver that does the decoding when the player is set to bitstream. To confirm the signal you can go to the Set Up menu and scroll down to information and then press audio. That will show you the incoming signal and what speakers are in use.Hi Guys, Ive just joined the 3600 club, upgrading from a pioneer to the denon. I have everything set up but i have one question if i may. I have it set up as 5.1.4 with st ceiling speakers set up as top middle and top rear. However, when i play an Atmos disk i dont get anything from the top rear speakers. the amp says Atmos but the disk info on my Panasonic 820 says truHD 7.1.
Can someone please tell me what im missing???
A Quiet PlaceGibbsy, Thank you ever so much for your quick and concise reply. I am new to Atmos so please bear with me !!
I ran the Audyssey this morning when setting it all up and I have just checked and the top rear speakers are there. I have just checked the info on the amp as you suggested and it says the top rear speakers are in use so it must be a case as you said that very little is sent through these speakers. However it seems that all is present and correct. (any suggestions for Atmos films which utilise the top rear speakers more)
On a side note I wish manufacturers supplied a printed manual with glectrical goods rather than putting them online, I always used to like flicking through seeing what everything does !!! I have downloaded the manual and was going to print it off until i say it was 350 pages long

problem solved... the cable between the receiver to the tv (4 mt)...I bought 1 new bivani 8k (3 mt) from amazon and I solved the problem of dolby vision.
my other cables between the receiver and all devices are belkin 4k.
Morning Shodan,Hey folks, I think I'm doing a silly thing here...
I'm asking in this thread if it's worth me buying one of these models in my situation... I'm pretty sure the answers will be "Yes John, it'll be a huge upgrade" and plenty of "No point really, not much benefit"
So, I run a 5.1 system with Dali Zensor 1's and a Monolith sub in a room about 12ft x 14ft.
My amp is coming up to 11 years old - Pioneer vsx 1019. I use a HD FURY to get TRUEHD out of the xbox and UHD to the TV as the amp can only pass through 1080p.
I also have a house set up with every room has Google Home devices and a chromecast in the avr to play music chosen through the Home device to play on the main system.
My disc spinner is (only used occasionally) an xbox one s.
My TV is the brilliant 2018 LG C6 (4K UHD Curved screen, dolby vision, HDR and it is the true HDR, not like a £400 HDR TV). I mostly watch Netflix and amazon prime.
Anyway, I fancy upgrading the amp to the X3600 which seems like a phenomenal piece of kit for its original price and quote amazing for the current pricing.
But will I notice any obvious sound improvement with the 5.1 as I use it? Obviously better processor and amps.....? Better for 2 channel music?
Or would I only get the benefit if I went Atmos?
Thanks in advance
I'm a million light years away from doing this, but I did wonder about this exact thing!This may be a silly question but can I use my old Pioneer VSX923 as an additional amp to power another 2 speakers to enable me to go 7.1.4? (is it even worth doing?)
I appreciate that the VSX may be a bit overkill to power a couple of rear surround speakers but I doubt I will get much for it second hand so I thought maybe put it to good use with a spare set of speakers I have. If I can do this will it mean I will have to control the volumes separately or can it be set up so the master volume of the Denon will also control the Pioneer powered speakers?
I was wondering about buying a cheap second hand stereo amp, something like a Cambridge audio A5 with the money from selling the Pioneer but if the Pioneer will do the job then no point in selling it to buy something different.
I have tried googling it but I am getting confused (it's my age!!!) with the differences between pre amps, power amps, pre in/pre out etc.
Any advice would be much appreciated
Thank you for the advice Nobbler. I did read that you should set the volume of the second amp to around 80%, run the auddessy setup, let it work its magic then the volume for both is controlled by the main amp!! is this not the case??It’s a pain using an old AVR as a power amp as you then have 2 volumes that you have to balance. It can be done but it’s much easier with a power amp.
