Denon AVR-X3600H vs Marantz SR6014

Denon AVR-X3600H vs Marantz SR6014

Denon AVR-X3600H review

Both units are 9.2-channelled and have almost equal power but Denon loses a bit because its figures are 105/8 W/Ohm vs 110W from Marantz. The Denon AVR-X3600H AV receiver with nine discrete amplifiers on board is capable of decoding DTS: X and Dolby Atmos object-oriented 3D sound formats in the maximum possible 7.2.2-channel configuration or in 7.2.4-channel using an additional stereo power. Available in DTS Virtual: X format and Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization technology that mimics the sound of ceiling speakers in DC systems that are not equipped with specialized speakers. IMAX Enhanced technology is supported with a special version of the DTS codec, which allows you to get the same highest quality sound. Denon AVR-X3600H

Marantz SR6014 review

For amplification, the Marantz SR6014 receiver uses HDAM modules with current feedback, which allow you to get a clean dynamic sound and cope with a low-impedance load (4 Ohms), and a special eco-mode helps the receiver save energy. For reliable signal reception, the Marantz SR6014 uses 2-band Wi-Fi. There is support for Bluetooth and AirPlay 2 (allows you to organize a multi-room based on Apple devices). The Marantz SR6014 model can be integrated into the HEOS wireless ecosystem. Marantz SR6014
