Denon AVR-X6500H review

Comparing these two units it is impossible not to mention that Denon has 11.2 channels vs Marantz’s 9.2. The power output is 140/8 vs 125/8 W/Ohm respectively. The model can work as part of the HEOS wireless multi-room system and has every chance of becoming the center of such a system. Using the HEOS application, you can control the functions of the receiver, provide audio streaming from various online services and stream music from the local network. You can send specific audio content to a designated group of HEOS devices or play the same track simultaneously in all rooms simultaneously. Denon AVR-X6500H

Marantz SR7013 review

The 9.2-channel Marantz SR7013 AV receiver complies with the IMAX Enhanced certificate, which ensures very high picture and sound quality (using a special version of the DTS codec), comparable to the image / sound quality in IMAX movie theaters. All current 3D audio formats are supported - DTS:X and Dolby Atmos up to the 7.1.4-channel version (stereo power required), Auro-3D, and even the DTS Virtual: X codec, which can provide three-dimensional immersive sound for multi-channel audio systems without ceiling speakers. The receiver allows you to "scale" any video up to a resolution of 1080p and 4K Ultra HD. Marantz SR7013
