7.2.4 Dolby Atmos AVR for RF-7s?

Recommended Posts

I currently run a 9.2 setup using heights and rear surrounds off of an a Denon AVR-4811ci in a less 2,000 cu ft HT. I have RF-7s/RC-7 up front with RB-75s on the sides and rear and RB-5s as Height speakers and wonder what the best bang-for-your-buck (if not slightly discontinued) AVR would be?

C'mon, guys! For those of you that have done the research what did you come up with for the best of the latest discontinued (or discounted) Atmos AVRs?

Okay, first first things first. 

 

@ZenAgain, welcome to the forum.

 

You have a stellar rig that is hard to improve on but I will try.

 

What is your budget for that new(to you) modern AVR?

Where are you located?

 

If you like your flagship Denon, then get a newer flagship or near flagship Denon AVR.  My true suggestion would be to get an upper tier AVR of your brand choice and a minimum 3 channel outboard amp with upwards of 120w/channel.  Many bargains on the used market and some new amps as well.

Yes - what @willland said

I have (have had) a very similar (albeit 5.1) setup to you. I have had RF-7,RC-7 and RS-7 for 15+years. Driven then with a Yamaha RX-Z1, Denon-4311CI and currently a Yamaha RX-A3060. I also have a SVS PB-16 Ultra sub. The A3060 can drive Atmos speakers, I am yet to buy some, would likely go with some I could place on top of the RF-7s.

 

Whenever replacing the AVR - I look at something that is around the same price point as my past AVRs. Newer ones obviously have updated capabilities. I still have my old AVRs - I still have a soft spot for the RX-Z1. 

 

Look for similar power to what you currently have, with the features you want. And then go searching for the best price.
