Denon AVR-X4400H vs Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A2080

Denon AVR-X4400H review

The X4400H is the most affordable 11.2-channel lineup. It has power of 200 W (at 6 Ohms). Relative to the downstream model, the AVR-X4400H boasts an improved 32-bit D.D.S.C. processor. HD Digital, processing multi-channel audio tracks, as well as Clock Jitter Reducer jitter suppression system and AL32 Processing Multichannel sound quality improvement algorithm. In combination with modern AK4458VN DACs, this allows you to get high sound quality that exceeds what we are used to hearing from AV-receivers of this class. On Auro 3D, the distance to distant objects was better felt, the sounds turned out to be richer in timbre. Denon AVR-X4400H

Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A2080 review

The 7.2-channel model has the power of 770W (4 Ohms). The receiver has the latest Surround AI decoder. The main task of the new Surround AI decoder is the analysis in real time of the soundtrack of the film and the isolation of different plans and elements in it - voices, background sounds, music. Then the processor processes the received information and distributes it on different channels. It is still unknown whether the principle of operation of this decoder is similar to Dolby Surround or DTS Neural:X. Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A2080
