Denon AVR-S650H vs Yamaha RX-V485

Denon AVR-S650H review

Denon AVR-S650H supports Ultra HD resolution (4K/60 Hz) and has five high-current amplifiers equipped with discrete elements. The declared power is 75 W/channel at 8 ohms, which in this case can be contrasted versus a competitor with 80 W/channel at the same impedance. The AVR-S650H works with most current modern surround sound formats, including Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio. The speakers connected to the AV receiver are calibrated by the Audyssey MultEQ system, supplemented by Dynamic EQ (frequency response optimization) and Dynamic Volume (volume optimization) technologies. Also, the receiver has good Wi-Fi and Bluetooth receivers.
