Denon AVR-X2600H vs Marantz SR6011 – that is a question.

Amplifier

The number of channels for receivers is different - 7.2 versus 9.2, respectively, for devices. In terms of power, there are differences, the AVR-X2600H has such a ratio W/Ohm - 95/8 20Hz-20KHz, 125/6 1KHz, while the SR6011 has a power of 110/8 20Hz-20KHz, 150/6 1KHz. A common feature for devices is the same total harmonic distortion - 0.08%.

Audio features

The manufacturer installed different DACs, the AVR-X2600H received the model 192KHz/32-bit, but the SR6011 is equipped with 192 KHz/24-bit. Each of the compared opponents supports Bi-amping. Both Denon AVR-X2600H and Marantz SR6011 can transmit an audio signal directly to the amplifier and bypasses any DSP processing. Each of the receivers has a Bluetooth connector. The contenders have differences in the supported services from Apple - AirPlay, AirPlay 2 versus AirPlay respectively. Access to the Spotify service is on each of the competitors. The number of available streaming services varies for receivers, the Denon AVR-X2600H works with Deezer, TIDAL, Pandora, Napster, SiriusXM, TuneIn Radio, iHeart Radio, Sound Cloud, Mood Mix, but the Marantz SR6011 works with Pandora, Sirius XM. The quality of 4K 60p signal remains unchanged when transmitting from a source to a TV or projector via HDMI for both receivers. Signaling over HDMI in standby mode can provide the AVR-X2600H and the SR6011. Each of the devices can increase the resolution of the incoming video signal. Operation with the Dolby Vision is only possible with the AVR-X2600H.

Extensive connections

The number of HDMI inputs/outputs is the same - 8/2.Denon AVR-X2600H connectionsMarantz SR6011 connections HDMI Audio Return Channel is implemented in both devices. HDMI eARC is only supported by the AVR-X2600H. When comparing receivers, it becomes clear that each of the rivals can work with HDMI CEC. The AVR-X2600H has support for the standard HDCP 2.3, compared to the SR6011, which supports the standard HDCP 2.2. Like most receivers, our models have a built-in phono stage for connecting a vinyl player.

Additional features

Ability to create 2 Multi zones inherent in both AV receivers. There is an ECO mode in either AV receiver. The Denon AVR-X2600H and the Marantz SR6011 can be properly configured using the setup assistant.

Multichannel surround

A Dolby Atmos multichannel audio format is available both models. A DTS:X surround technology is supported by devices from our comparison.
