Comparing these two models we can see that Denon has more channels (11.2 vs 9.2) but its power output is 140W/8 Ohm vs 150W from Yamaha. The processor base is based on the most advanced architecture D.D.S.C. HD32. It, like the reference AVC-X8500H, has a system of precise internal synchronization, jitter suppression and digital filtering according to AL32 Processing Multichannel algorithms. The only thing where our model does not reach the flagship in class is the DAC unit - instead of eight separate Asahi Kasei AK4490 converters, other chips of the same manufacturer are used - 8-channel AK4458VN, as in the models below.
Since the RX-A3080 has three HDMI output connectors. This means, for example, that you can use your TV as usual, but use the projector for your favorite films and special programming or have the same basic contents of the room shown in other rooms - easily and without having to change any connections. Naturally, the built-in HDMI functionality has the latest specifications, also corresponding to HDR (Dolby Vision Compatible, Hybrid Log-Gamma), 4K / 60p transmission, 4K scaling, etc.
The Denon AVR-X6500H is better receiver in this comparison. Check Denon AVR-X6500H price
