I appreciate it is true, but given the speakers I use (tiny little boston acoustic soundware xs's), i presume the improvement in tech from 2700 to 4500 would be lost on me - the speakers being a weak link. Unfortunately new speakers are not on the horizon, but equally I'm satisfied with performance through my current Denon X2200W. Do you think I'd notice the improvement to 4500 with my speakers?The 4500 will be considerably better than the X2700 as it is two tiers above that model in the Denon model range.
yes, this is the other option and is quite tempting, but as and when other product adds 10+ I'd want the AVR to handle it. Perhaps it'll be a while before that's the case though...I have a 6500 and have my 4K player direct to my TV for HDR10+ when it eventually gets a firmware upgrade which has been promised for the last two years. Not too worried as I only have two HDR10+ titles anyway.
