Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A3080 vs Denon AVR-X4400H

Price or quality: Denon AVR-X4400H vs Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A3080

Denon AVR-X4400H vs Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A3080

I tested both receivers and I compare Denon AVR-X4400H versus Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A3080. Denon is one the most popular receivers brand. Denon AVR-X4400H as always pleases with its features such as Alexa voice control, HEOS wireless music streaming technology with HEOS app which has comfortable control options and almost unlimited music sources and also the most comfortable Denon Remote app for smartphones.

But I had a problem with Bluetooth, so if you have the same problem use your warranty to return and fix it. Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A3080 has a high-quality sound including the best audio technologies such as Dolby Atmos, DTS:X with Multi-Zone, Cinema DSP HD3, YPAO Sound Optimization and Yamaha’s new feature AITM technology which automatically optimizes the sound in real-time. Also supports Alexa voice control. I know Yamaha makes high-quality products but this model is too expensive.
