The Denon AVR-E400 was purchased to replace my 13 years old Sony receiver. The Audyssey did not detect the speakers initially. But coming back to the menu after the initial setup, it worked out fine. The sound quality is good with the AVR-E400 connected to my old Bose 301 bookshelf and V-10 speakers. Network services are nice and quickly connected. The Android APP from Denon was not the best to use but is manageable.
