Onkyo TX-NR585 review

Onkyo TX-NR585 develops 80 W/channel at 8 Ohms, which is the same compared to the competitor, which also has 7.2 channels. All six HDMI inputs support HDCP 2.2, 4K and 60 frames video, BT.2020 color space with 4: 4: 4 color gamut, and HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision HDR formats. AccuEQ and AccuReflex systems are responsible for calibrating the sound in a particular room. Like the older model, the TX-NR585 supports the DTS Play-Fi multi-room system and the Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, TuneIn, Deezer, and Tidal streaming services. The DAC is capable of processing audio in resolutions up to 24 bit / 192 kHz PCM and DSD up to 5.6 MHz. For owners of turntables provided audio input. Onkyo TX-NR585

Pioneer VSX-933 review

The built-in Wi-Fi adapter works in two bands (2.4 / 5 GHz), which means that it can establish stable wireless communication even in a large apartment building, stuffed with access points. Judging by the presence of two antennas, data can be transmitted at a speed of up to 300 Mbps - enough to play stereo audio streams with a resolution of up to 192 kHz / 24 bit (AIFF, Apple Lossless, WAV, FLAC) or multi-channel FLAC or WAV 48 kHz / 24 bit (over a wired Ethernet network - up to 96 kHz / 24 bit). Moreover, continuous playback (gapless) of tracks is possible - this is necessary for albums recorded without pauses. Pioneer VSX-933
