Denon AVR-X1500H vs Onkyo TX-NR575

Onkyo TX-NR575 vs Denon AVR-X1500H

Onkyo TX-NR575 review

The 7.2-channel Onkyo TX-NR575 receiver, power 7 x 135 W (6 Ohms), has four HDMI inputs. They transmit the signal in 4K resolution (60 Hz), and also support the standard BT.2020 and the protocol HDCP 2.2. At the same time, HDMI is available in the HDR10 and Dolby Vision formats (HDR with a color depth of 12 bits and dynamic metadata). The Onkyo TX-NR575 receiver has an HDMI output with a return channel, which is important when connecting to a TV. Among the many switching connectors, one can single out a set of digital inputs, an MM phono stage input and Pre Out for a pair of subwoofers. To connect to the speakers are seven pairs of screw terminals. Onkyo TX-NR575

Denon AVR-X1500H review

7.2 AV receiver with multi-room HEOS system, power 7 x 80 W (8 Ohms), is equipped with many features available in the more expensive models of this company. In addition, the Denon AVR-X1500H also has Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and DTS Virtual:X processors for the latest object-oriented formats that are used to record an increasing number of films on BD. A pleasant surprise in the AV receiver of this cost is the presence of the Audyssey MultEQ XT automatic surround calibration system, which works using the included external microphone.
