I am looking for a 7.2.4 atmos receiver. I would like to have a second zone hdmi and audio output but am not married to it. Has to have pre outs as I will eventually move to separates but cannot afford that at this time. (though I haven't seen a 11 channel receiver without preouts)
I am looking at the Denon x6500. Am I missing any other good options?

Thanks

How much is the X6500 (MSRP $2200) compared to the Pre-pro you wanted?

Marantz AV8805 and AV8802A would cost more, but might check Yamaha CX-A5200 and Marantz AV7705. Yamaha CX-A5100 is on clearance so it might be less than the X6500.

Well, I'm Canadian eh.

x6500 is $3000 and the other options are difficult to come by up here.

So I am thinking;
1. full avr with preouts
2. buy seperate power amplifier(s)
3. possibly buy fancier processor

All purchases spread out but hopefully not TOO spread out.

I think use what you have now and save up till you have the funds. If you get a x6500, wouldn’t that set you back a lot longer?

This will be for the new theater. Sorry I didn't make that clear.

What I have now will be used for the existing HT that will transition into a general family room. Kids are using my stuff!!!!

Whoa dude you’ve come a long way. You definitely need power for those. I can’t wait to see your setup when it’s all up.
