Denon AVR-X3600H vs Onkyo TX-RZ840

Denon AVR-X3600H review

The Denon AVR-X3600H 9.2-channel AV receiver with nine discrete amplifiers on board is capable of decoding DTS: X and Dolby Atmos object-oriented 3D sound formats. The output power is 180 watts per channel (6 ohms). A full set of analog and digital inputs (among which there is also a special input for a vinyl player) will allow you to build a universal system based on the AV receiver for listening to music from various sources. Denon AVR-X3600H has an assertive and dynamic sound, as well as a very well-chosen set of functions, which, given the quite reasonable cost, makes it a very profitable acquisition. Denon AVR-X3600H

Pros

  • The functionality and sound quality of the unit are great for a home theater
  • This is a big heavy receiver that has most of the latest extras people are looking for

Cons

  • One thing I'm very disappointed about is the fact Spotify isn't supported by Onkyo, the Apps shows up in the list of Music streaming services but Spotify will not connect. I contacted Onkyo CS and was told Spotify is no longer supported
