Hey All,\n\nLooking to upgrade my setup. I recently built some amps for my system and so I am using an old Denon AVR-4306 as a processor. I watched the recent video on the processors and it seems to me like they all rated about the same and that the real things that mattered was room correction ability and how well the video switching worked. I have seen some commentary on it being nice if the processor is fully differential from input to output.\n\nHere is my situation...\nI listen to 80% stereo music.\nI am very comfortable using REW to try to get the room dialed in.\nIt would be nice to have balanced outputs, but I am not sure I necessarily need them because my runs are pretty short.\nI would like to be able to support 4k video\nIt would be really nice if I could support some of the newer audio formats\nMy current setup is 5.1. I have some in-ceiling speakers for atmos, but I am not sure it is worth it since most of the content I watch is not Atmos enabled.\nI basically have a Pi-Hat that runs Roon as one device (RCA out) and an Nvidia Shield (HDMI) as the second input device.\n\nOptions:\n1.) buy a used Anthem AVM-60 - Seems like it would be about and check all the boxes including atmos. ($2200)\n2.) Keep the denon and buy a minidsp DDRC-88a (dirac) as well as an HDMI audio extractor of some kind. ($1200ish)\n3.) Buy a used Yamaha CX-5100 or CX-5200 and just mess with room correction until I get it dialed in. ($1800-$2000) (wondering if the 5100 would be better because of the distortion issues found in the 5200 review.)\n4.) Buy a new Outlaw 976 and get a minidsp for room correction ($2000)\n\nWondering if I have hit all the good options and if there are other things I should consider. Thanks for taking the time to look and help me think through this.
