Denon AVR-X3600H vs Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A1080

Denon AVR-X3600H review

Here we have 9.2-channel receiver against 7.2. AVR-X3600H has 105/8 W/Ohm while Yamaha almost the same 110/8. The Denon AVR-X3600H is equipped with a powerful DSP-based digital processing system that can easily handle an 11.2-channel signal, and each channel has a 32-bit AKM AK4458VN DAC. The device has streamer functions with support for playing FLAC / ALAC / WAV up to 24 bit / 192 kHz and DSD up to 5.6 MHz over a local network and via a USB port on the facade. There is a Bluetooth module and Wi-Fi-circuit with two bands, which improves the quality of pairing in busy networks. Denon AVR-X3600H

Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A1080 review

The AVENTAGE Series RX-A1080 features a smart, minimalist design with an elegant aluminum front panel. More importantly, the device is exceptionally sturdy - from the inside it is reinforced with stiffeners in the form of the letter “H”. The device is also equipped with anti-resonance technology Anti Resonance Technology (A.R.T.), which is the fifth leg in the center of the device, which absorbs vibration from a power amplifier and other sources. Thanks to these features, the device is more stable. Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A1080
