Denon AVR-S750H vs Denon AVR-X1600H

Denon AVR-S750H review

These Denon receivers have the same channel quantity (7.2) but their power output slightly differs. We have 75/8 vs 80/8 W/Ohm. On board the Denon AVR-S750H there are six HDMI inputs (one on the front panel) that support 4K Ultra HD / 60 Hz, HDCP 2.3 protocol and video standards HDR10, Dolby Vision and HLG. There is an HDMI output with support for the extended eARC return channel, which allows you to transfer 3D audio (Dolby Atmos, etc.) to the receiver directly from the TV panel. Among other switching, the presence of the input of the MM phono stage can be distinguished. To connect the speakers are seven pairs of screw terminals, indicated in different colors.

Denon AVR-X1600H review

Denon AVR-X1600H has a configuration of 7.1, which is also rarely found in this price category. And the device has Dolby Atmos and DTS: X 3D-sound decoders, and based on it you can create systems in 5.2.2 configuration. This will make it possible to fully voice the majority of living rooms in an ordinary city apartment. Also in this model there is a Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization processor, which will add volume to standard audio tracks. For convenient setup of a home theater system, this model provides Audyssey MultEQ XT auto-calibration technology. Denon AVR-X1600H
