Yamaha RX-V385 vs Onkyo TX-SR373

Yamaha RX-V385 review

The 5.1-channel Yamaha RX-V385 has a power of 70 W/channel. The model supports Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio with 3 BAC-384 kHz / 32-bit DACs. The receiver supports all the most popular modern video formats: 4K, HDR10, and Dolby Vision. Of course, it also decodes all the usual compressed audio formats. In addition, it can receive audio via Bluetooth, and Yamaha's Compressed Audio Enhancer is also optimized for Bluetooth. The receiver also has a proprietary YPAO room correction algorithm, which optimizes the sound in this room.

Onkyo TX-SR373 review

TX-SR373 is equipped with a block of analog amplifiers with a power of 100 W/channel at 8 Ohm. The receiver is equipped with the DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD formats. The Dual-zone function has already become mandatory, and in the Yamaha RX-V385 vs Onkyo TX-SR373 review, it is worth noting that RX-V385 cannot work in two-zone mode compared to the TX-SR373, which also supports connecting two sets of speakers. Built-in Bluetooth allows to stream music from any compatible device. The device has extensive network equipment, as well as methods of wireless broadcasting from audio devices based on dual-band Wi-Fi.
