Denon AVR-S750H review

Comparing Denon AVR-S750H vs Onkyo TX-NR696 let’s see that two 7.2-channelled devices have RMS of 110/6 and 165/6 W/Ohm respectively. On board the Denon AVR-S750H there are six HDMI inputs (one on the front panel) that support 4K Ultra HD / 60 Hz, HDCP 2.3 protocol and video standards HDR10, Dolby Vision and HLG. There is an HDMI output with support for the extended eARC return channel, which allows you to transfer 3D audio (Dolby Atmos, etc.) to the receiver directly from the TV panel. Among other switching, the presence of the input of the MM phono stage can be distinguished. Denon AVR-S750H

Onkyo TX-NR696 review

Onkyo TX-NR696 has a seven-channel configuration, its output stages are built on discrete elements and are able to provide significant current to the load. This makes the unit compatible with acoustics, whose impedance is 4 ohms. Special technology with zero phase shift provides transparent sound and a natural soundstage. Onkyo TX-NR696 has an improved circuitry with a reduction in the length of the supply and grounding buses, as well as the removal of digital circuits from analog. A high-quality custom transformer is installed in the power supply unit of the AV receiver. Onkyo TX-NR696

Denon AVR-S750H pros & cons

Pros

  • The AVR-S750H capable of reproducing 24 bit / 192 kHz stream and DSD
  • Denon AVR-S750H can be controlled using Alexa, and also works with Google Assistant / Google Home

Cons

Onkyo TX-NR696 pros & cons

Pros

  • Dolby Vision (HDR) passes through it fine and the picture looks great
  • The ability to adjust tone and boost voice with the touch of a button is nice

Cons

  • I do wish it was back-lit though. It seems remote backlighting is becoming less common for whatever reason. Maybe to keep prices more competitive
