Both devices have 7.2 channel configuration. However, Pioneer has a bit more stereo power: 165/6 vs 135/6 W/Ohm. The receiver’s network functionality is implemented in its entirety: it can work as a DAR (digital audio renderer), that is, a passive playback device that receives streams from a mobile application or audio server installed on a desktop computer. And also as a network player with a graphical menu on the TV or text information on its own display and control from the remote control or mobile application. There is an Internet radio receiver based on the vTuner service. So the owner of the VSX-933 will no longer need a separate network player.
Four HDMI inputs of the receiver transmit the signal in 4K resolution (60 Hz), and also support the standard BT.2020 and the protocol HDCP 2.2. At the same time, HDMI is available in the HDR10 and Dolby Vision formats (HDR with a color depth of 12 bits and dynamic metadata). The Onkyo TX-NR575 receiver has an HDMI output with a return channel, which is important when connecting to a TV. Among the many switching connectors, one can single out a set of digital inputs, an MM phono stage input and Pre Out for a pair of subwoofers.
