NOW the 4800 is Next Level! Dirac Live is Here!
So the receiver was already a top notch upgrade, saying you have a nice set of speakers and a quality sources. But Dirac Live (Full Version) is next level, this is your reason to upgrade to the AVR-X4800H. It makes such a cohesive and balanced bubble of sound after properly* configuring Dirac (make sure to watch a few YouTube videos). Save the default results as flat, and then create a movie and music curve the way you want it to sound. Once you have it how you think* you want it, upload it to the AVR and take it for a spin. Dirac has finally freed Denon AVR's into something exceptional, not just great. JUST FYI: You'll need a MiniDSP Umik-1 (or version 2, but not necessary), the curve text file from MiniDSP (90 degree version), a microphone stand to place the mic as instructed, the full Dirac license, your laptop annnd everyone out of the room (as close to absolute silence as possible). Watch some videos on setting up Dirac 3 so that you understand the initial settings etc. After each position is completed, hold on to your hats! You may need to adjust volumes here and there afterward, but you will notice that, wow, this thing sounds WAY better than Audyssey on its very best day in a perfect world with the Apps. Denon, thank you for adding Direc Live 3, now can we have Dirac Bass Management and Dirac ART (Active Room Treatment)? Unstoppable? Thank you in advance.

Pre amp buzzing
I'm coming from the avr3600h. Was excited about the 4 subs option. After I got it all hooked up there was really loud buzzing from my rear Dolby speakers from the pre amp. I changed to rear surround using different set of pre amp. Still buzzing. Then used my old Denon 3600 and used the front speakers pre amps. And I made loud popping crackling sounds. Of course it the weekend so I'll try to contact customer service Monday and send it back. Very disappointing. Had high hopes. But the sound on all other channels was great. Just those preamps not working.

Best Denon yet.
This is my third Denon receiver. Best one yet. I usually upgrade every ten years. Hopefully this one will last ten years.

Super Awesome! Get it if you can swing the price!
So the AVR-X4800h is really everything most people could possibly need for excellent and engaging sound at home. If you can swing the price, it's amazing! Just waiting for Direc Live to release in March of '23 lol. Now let me tell you what you need to know about owning this thing. You need great sounding speakers that will probably cost quite a bit more than this (5.1.4 for atmos is my setup), high quality speaker wire and banana plugs, high quality HDMI cables and to do a little research on operating it. Until Direc Live is released you'll be using Audyssey, which is good but with some limitations. You'll need the Audyssey app on a large phone screen or tablet. Set up the speakers, turn off midrange compensation, cap the Eq to 300 hz on each speaker, turn off all the extra junk and eq. After you upload your settings to the receiver, go into the receiver settings menu and make sure the volumes actually match and sound good, I usually bump all of them up from default settings that Audyssey selects during setup. Now you need quality sources right? Apple TV 4K, Xbox Series X (Purchase the Atmos App), PC with HDMI, and I'm sure the PS5 is good, just not my cup of tea. If you have a Blu Ray player, find some atmos content. I wouldn't recommend using "smart TV" apps and arc back to the receiver, you don't need that nonsense laggy TV stuff, just get an Apple TV and everything will be seamless (not even an Apple fan, but it's the best streaming device out by far). I am coming from a X3600h and I can say with confidence that now is a good time to make an upgrade. This one is actually made in Japan, not exactly common these days. If you're a Marantz fan it's equivalent to a Cinema 40, except about 1k less lol. Most people that write bad reviews either don't bother to look into what they are buying, how to use it, or went cheap on the stuff you need to let this thing shine such as: speakers, sub, wiring etc. This is an amazing and sophisticated sound computer essentially, a little steep on price but should last you a long long time.

Five Stars For Excitement
I am so excited to obtain one of these new even numbered series units with their upgraded features I cannot contain myself! Cannot wait to put a 4800H in place of my 4100W. Get Them Out As Soon As Possible Denon! Sincerely, Richard D. Tylen.
