********* Note:  This thread is still under construction with currently only up to the X2400H links being active.  Until the updated specs have been released for a particular model (currently includes S530BT/S730H/S930H/X1400H/X2400H), the information provided has simply been copied from the 2016 model thread listing (ie.  X3400H, X4400H, X6400H).   *************

D+M USA has started to release information on the new 2017 Denon models beginning with the three new "S" series models.  The lower "X" series models should be announced in April with the higher "X" series announced later this summer.   A new “flagship” model to replace the X7200WA should be announced later this fall and is expected to be released in Spring 2018 and will have a separate dedicated Owner's thread.

 What's new for the 2017 models?

- Bluetooth Auto-Select (ON/OFF – prevents Bluetooth devices from powering on the AVR or selecting Bluetooth source when in range)
- Restart - (in lieu of having to pull power cable)
- 4K Signal Format (not a setting on this model rather it simply internally factory defaults to Enhanced (4K60,4:4:4, 10 bit video) and cannot be changed

- S530BT - MSRP $279, 5.2 CH, 70W, HDMI In/Out (5/1)
This is a 5CH AVR which features Bluetooth, but is not a networking model.  Firmware updates would be installed via the USB jack.  It includes a mic for a basic (ie. non-Audyssey) single position speaker/sub calibration.  It can display the GUI over 2D/3D video on HDMI1 and HDMI2 and pass through 4k/60Hz video from HDMI3/HDMI4/HDMI5 but cannot display the GUI over 4k video.  It uses the “Denon 500 Series Remote” Bluetooth app.

Welcome to the Official 2017 Denon AVR-S/X models thread (S530BT/S730H/S930H/X1400H/X2400H/X3400H/X4400H/X6400H).
 
 
If this is your first visit to this thread, and you want to ask a question about one of the 2017 Denon AVR models, either one that you own or one that you are thinking of buying, please provide the following information to allow for better responses to your questions:
 
(a) Identify the model number in question (eg. X2400H), as there are 8 different models (S and X series) discussed in this thread. Also if you have not posted in several days since your initial post, please post the model # again so we don't have to back track to learn which model you are referencing.
 
(b) Identify what you've done so far to troubleshoot the issue and what the front panel is displaying if an audio issue, (also take a few minutes to review the Troubleshooting section provided in post 3 as your question may already be answered there,
 
(c) Unless you indicate what settings have been changed, the assumption will be that all settings are on the factory defaults (ie. usually "Auto"),
 
(d) If the advice given seems to simplistic or obvious, don't shoot the advice giver as we have no idea of the level of your technical understanding,
 
(e) If there is no response to your post, it either means no one knows the answer or it has simply been overlooked so please repost if you still haven't resolved your issue,
 
(f) If you post a question in this thread and are given advice and either it or some other advice (eg. Denon phone support, Denon "Ask a Question" email support) resolves your issue, have the common courtesy to post back what solution resolved your issue so others can learn from it as well,
 
(g) If the issue is not user error or not just a misunderstanding on how the AVR works, please call Denon support so the issue is registered,
 
(h) When responding to another post that is providing assistance to you, please press the "Quote" button in the lower right corner of that other poster's response so that response is also listed with your new post to provide some context, and,
 
(i) If you don't live in either the USA or Canada, please indicate your country location in your post as some Denon models from other regions in the world differ in configuration from their USA/Canada counterparts otherwise responses made will be regarding the USA/Canada models.

The biggie to me is the ability to adjust the curve. People have been wanting that for a long time and one of the reasons people have been going to devices like miniDSP Dirac. :)

That's pretty cool - but I'll need to get an X7400H, since this won't work with my current X7200WA.
