Finally have upgraded to Atmos! WWS a pleasure to deal with
Upgraded from a 3808ci and previously also owned Pioneer Elite.
I found WWS while searching on the internet and bought mailorder; very reputable - pricing is excellent - and met all their committments.
Sonically this is meets my goals and especially in pur direct mode mode music fidelity is excellent.
Running 5.1.2, bi-@amped fronts, and a second zone via an outboard 2 channel power amp which allows two sets of switched speakers.
....ATMOS....(the main event)
Have auditioned (and craved) Atmos at multiple shops but now having setup this up at home is as much of a wow as I had looked forward to.
Amp assign methodology is superior to previous process on 3808.
Yes, you can set this up quickly - but - the customization/setup capabilities may have you tweaking for a while if you enjoy doing such and I do.
I put the pdf manual on my ipad (no more printed manuals!) so i can refer to to better understand capabilities as I am using.
Limitations for me are going from 3 simultaneous to 2 zones but this is not critical.
For me, this 2019 model meets all my goals at a reasonable price.
Also this has 5 amps vs other models with 9 amps which allows more flexibility without needing a multi channel outboard power amp.
You can buy higher but I am VERY pleased with both the 3600 and WWS.

This is my SECOND receiver where the hdmi out port just stopped working. Denon replaced the first one and I plugged the hdmi cable in and it worked right off the bat. I went to turn it on and it said firmware update, but I noticed there was no onscreen menu. All I could think of is NOT AGAIN...Seriously? I had the first one less than 7 months before it blew out and now this happened AGAIN. Whatever company they are using to put in these hdmi boards, they are defective and this product should be recalled. 1200 bucks down the drain.

Superb Receiver ! !
Great product My previous Receiver which served me well was a Harmon Kardon. That finally died after 13 years. Stepping up to this receiver has been a treat tons of options and abilities. Currently set up for 7.2.4 and deciding what external Amp to pick up to drive the remaining two channels.. Will probably use it on my front left and right. Everything has worked perfectly with no issues what so ever. (be sure to try out your system with a actual Blu-Ray Disc for some uncompressed Dolby Atmos to really flex your system its like night and day the robustness of the sound compared to the compressed audio stream from netflix, prime and competitors).

Issues with Dolby Atmos on the Xbox one X in Denon
-I’m not getting Dolby Atmos on games that has Atmos tracks AND the Dolby Atmos software on my XBOX ONE X...but 4K blu-ray disks with Atmos track plays in Atmos with no problems on my XBOX.
-I called XBOX support, but they couldn’t help.
-All my setting on XBOX are correct.
-I have the Dolby app. (Uninstalled it and reinstalled it multiple times.)
-Atmos also works fine on my APPLE TV 4K and OPPO 203 when played using my Denon X3600H....but not my XBOX

Please help, as I have contacted Microsoft, and Dolby, and they blamed Denon.

I love this receiver, but....
...I upgraded specifically for the Bluetooth connection that allows you to connect wireless headphones/earbuds and listen to the TV/Music/Etc without blasting away everyone else in the house. I was able to connect my Bose QC35 and my B+O H9i headphones as well as my B+O E8Motion earbuds. But I can only get a signal out of the Bose. Nothing comes through on the B+O's. And what I do get on the Bose are volume-limited, so you can't really crank it up the way you'd like. I know this functionality was added to the AVR-X3600H after initial production, so perhaps there's a software update in the works that'll fix this. Is that the case? Or is there something else I should know?

Excellent Receiver - Running 7.2.4
I bought this receiver as a Christmas present for me. It was time to re-vamp my home theatre system which was setup before HDMI using 7.1 analog inputs.

This receiver has taken me right to the front of the line with my theatre, and the sound is incredible. The Audyssey sound setup did a super job to start, with a couple of minor personal preferences to tune it up.

I did have the problem people have noted with the xbox one, and did need to roll back the firmware BUT! This is not the fault of Denon, it is either the Dolby application for xbox, or the xbox itself not being as up to date for sound processing as the receiver. Once I did that, perfection.

The front speakers are running on a separate amplifier, and integrate perfectly with all other speakers, the sound flows smoothly in the room from speaker to speaker - no abrupt changes or dropped ranges of sound.

For those who have not moved to a 4K projector, it is good to note the receiver easily takes in a 4K blu-ray to gain all the Atmos sound, but will output an extremely sharp 1080p picture. This has bought me a little move time before I need to update that too.

All my old movies are new again, and now I actively hunt down media with Atmos.

My sons play games on the system too, and for Atmos enabled games it is just WOW - I just sit, watch and listen sometimes.

Loving my home theatre again thank to the Denon receiver!

Works great minus one major issue
Fix your firmware! Current firmware won't allow Xbox s and x series to run Atmos just multichannel only! Original firmware works fine and Atmos works so I had to do a network reset to go back to original firmware .

The X3600H: An excellent product!
I have had the X3600H for about 6 weeks now and I am really impressed with the picture quality and the quality of the audio. My overall goal was to upgrade my entire home theater setup. New speakers and a new AVR. The driving force was to implement height channels.

I’m getting content from “the company a mouse built.” The new streaming service from mouse will support Dolby Atmos height channels. I found an action sequence a movie that took place on a rainy night. There were shots, explosions, breaking glass from second and third story rooms. There were two people using katana blades fighting on the street and the director put the camera in between the combatants. The sound engineers had put the rain falling downward, as the explosions went off bricks and glass cane falling to the ground. As the katana fighters would swing their blades it would make that shimmering sound just above your head. When a blade was blocked it would make that distinctive sound. Then men, women and children could be heard crying and screaming from the rooms above.

In this case Dolby Atmos puts you in the middle of the action. It places you inside the movie experience. The Denon allows you to experience this type of immersion at a reasonable price. In my case the power is more than adequate but if it ever became a problem one can always add an external amp. I’m driving a 5.1 for surround sound and 4 height, Atmos, channels - a total of 9 speakers with the X3600H. I have a locally powered subwoofer running on a dedicated wireless connection. I may add an additional subwoofer sometime in the future to better balance the bass experience in the room. As a point, this driving force on a second subwoofer is not a deficiency of the AVR, rather it is a problem with the room.

I would definitely buy the X3600H again, I have no second thoughts. I would, and have recommend it to my friends.
