Denon AVRS730H

Features

The Denon AVR-S730H is a 7.2-channel receiver with a wide variety of connectivity options and audio decoders support. However, its power output isn’t great - only 75 watts per channel on 8-ohm drivers and 110 watts on 6-ohm drivers. It also includes decoders for DTS: X and Dolby Atmos, the most advanced audio formats, which are added to the service channels of surround sound to make the sound more depth. As an alternative use, the Denon AVR-S730H specs allow users to create the Second zone with an additional set of drivers.

Design and build

The receiver has a classical appearance. It's a big black box with buttons, knobs and a display at the front panel. Users can operate the receiver without remote due to these buttons. The design is similar to other Denon receivers.

Connectivity

The Denon AVRS730H has wide abilities to wireless music streaming. Users can connect any device via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, and especially for iOS devices, there is AirPlay function. Also, the receiver has the native support of online music streaming services such as Pandora, Spotify, Amazon Prime Music, etc.

Setup

The receiver comes with an Audyssey MultEQ auto-tuning system. With the help of a complete microphone and on-screen prompts, it corrects the sound depending on the number of speakers connected to the receiver and room parameters. After that, it is possible to change or edit the sound settings using the built-in options or through an application that is available for both Android and iOS.

Denon AVRS730H pros and cons

Pros

  • Surround sound creates a real presence effect. It is deep and detailed, sounds do not mix on the general scene and sound believable
  • There is a flexible equalizer that allows users to fully customize the sound depending on preferences

Cons

  • As for the receiver with Second zone support, the power output could be better
  • The building of the HEOS network is a little bit complicated due to the on-screen menu and slow application
