The AVR-S950H is a basic 7.2-channel receiver that has all the most advanced features: network, Bluetooth and WiFi interfaces, including Apple AirPlay 2, the entire range of music streaming services available, HEOS wireless streaming, and the latest video features. However, both receivers in the Denon AVR-S950H vs Denon AVR-X2600H review meet all modern 4K/3D/HDR/HLG/Dolby Vision standards. The AVR-S950H is equipped with powerful DSPs that, in addition to the basic multi-channel formats, support the more advanced Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master, and at the same time provide fairly wide settings for filters and equalizers for your speaker configuration.
Denon AVR-X2600H is a 7.2-channel model with output power 95 W/channel which is a little more versus the S950H. The receiver uses a 32-bit quad-core DSP Cirrus Logic, and the amplifying output sections have a vertical layout. The 2600H received Dolby Atmos and DTS: X 3D-decoders, a phono stage for vinyl, all network and multi-room HEOS chips, support for the new Apple AirPlay 2 wireless protocol, improved Eco-mode (reduces power consumption during downtime), a convenient graphical interface with step-by-step setup and a bunch of new features for remote monitoring and diagnostics.
The Denon AVR-X2600H is better receiver in this comparison. Check Denon AVR-X2600H price
