I recently purchased an LG 65EF9500. I currently use an XBOX for gaming/DVD watching and Dish for HD TV. I have a Denon receiver that is currently 3+ years old. Would I notice any improvement in video quality by upgrading to a 4k capable receiver? All HDMI cables were upgraded also as the originals were installed 6 years ago.

Thank-you!
 
Since you don't have any 4k sources upgrading the receiver would likely not make an improvement in video quality (unless the new receiver had video processing that the old one did not). Overall I would stick with your old one for a while until you have some 4k sources.
 
If your current receiver isn't capable of the specs required for UHD blu-rays, then yes, 4x improvement, probably smaller depending on viewing distance. If the content is still FHD, you won't notice an improvement, perhaps in audio if your setup is pretty good.
