As the owner of a 2018 Denon AVR, I've had real problems getting its ARC function to work with an LG OLED TV. An internet search reveals that I'm not alone -- lots of people have been unable to get Denon AVR's to play nice with LG TV sets via HDMI ARC connections. Do you know if it's been fixed with the eARC connection on this receiver?

I have the AVR-X3400H and now using LG OLED 65x and have no connection issues what so ever. The AV unit works great. But I am considering upgrading to the AVR-X6700H for more speakers

I'm curious why (with the exception of their high-end model) Denon receivers don't offer 7.1 analog inputs while their sister company Marantz does. I specifically purchased a Marantz SR7011 so I could connect my Oppo UDP-205 to its 7.1 analog inputs to take advantage of the Oppo's superior DACs. I've noticed a lack of 7.1 inputs on most of the receivers recently reviewed in S&V. I can only hope Marantz doesn't follow this trend.

Because the intention of these products is to use Audyssey room correction, which would then require re-digitizing the signal anyway. I think it's a rare room/setup where the Oppo DAC with no room correction produces better overall results than the Denon DAC with room correction.
