Here we have two devices with 9.2 channels. The output power of Denon is 105/8 while Yamaha has 140W at 8 Ohms. The device received eight HDMI inputs (one on the front panel) supporting 4K Ultra HD / 60 Hz, HDCP protocol version 2.3 and HDR video standards HDR10 / Dolby Vision / HLG. Of the three HDMI outputs, one works with an extended eARC return channel, which can broadcast 3D audio (Dolby Atmos, etc.) to the AV receiver directly from the TV panel. One can distinguish the presence of an MM phono stage, a block of digital inputs, and an 11.2-channel Pre Out.
One can not help but mention the rich network functionality of the Yamaha RX-A2080. To integrate the receiver into your home computer network, you can use a wired connection, for which the device is equipped with an Ethernet RJ-45 port, or you can do without wires - there is a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi adapter on board that supports wireless specifications up to IEEE 802.11n. Connecting the receiver to the network will not only allow you to work with audio files from DLNA servers, but also play streaming audio from popular streaming services.
