Denon AVR-X3600H vs Marantz SR5014

Denon AVR-X3600H review

Thanks to digital amplifiers for each channel, Denon AVR-X3600H received a power of 105 W / channel and stable operation with good quality performance even with acoustics with low impedance. The power rating is comparable to the competitor in the Denon AVR-X3600H vs Marantz SR5014 comparison. Support for IMAX technology allows you to view content with excellent clarity, detail, color saturation, and amazing sound. And the device can also work with Dolby Atmos for configurations 5.2.4 or 7.2.2, and Height Virtualization allows you to get great surround sound without the use of external channels.

Marantz SR5014 review

We are considering this 7.2 channel model versus a 9.2-channel rival. Marantz SR5014 is compatible with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, capable of delivering 100/channel with 0.08% distortion. The model is Hi-Res audio compatible and can access many popular online music services. Audyssey MultEQ XT system simplifies settings by adjusting the level of each speaker according to the acoustics of the room. Finally, the integration of Heos multiroom technology and compatibility with voice control from a connected Alexa speaker, Google Assistant or Apple Homepod facilitates the distribution of music throughout the house.
