Denon vs Sony – different stories but alike leadership

A comparison chart Sony vs Denon doesn’t show what stands behind figures, so I’ve decided to compare Denon vs Sony in order to track such different ways of the companies to the similar target – world-wide recognition.

Denon – leadership through the years

Denon

Denon shook the market in the year 2014 with the introduction of cutting-edge HEOS – a wireless multi-room sound system. It made possible to listen to the music from a phone, a tablet or any cloud music services from any spot in the house controlling it via free App. It is released in four models that differ in covering space ability.

In the same year, it launched two ‘W’ receivers with the outstanding Eco mode that saves the energy in addition to already included Dolby Atmos, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. In about the same time period, Denon created X-series receivers of both middle class and for the tight budget but both with Dolby Atmos and readiness for DTS:X. The freshest version includes HDMI 2.0a, 4K Ultra HD, HDR, and HDCP 2.2.

Earlier, Denon made a broad line of "08" receivers including three less expensive models at approximately $1,600 and more costly – around $2,500. However, all include internal Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD audio decoding, and built-in Ethernet connectivity for digital media streaming. In addition, some models also have Wi-Fi.

In 2010, Denon celebrated its 100-years anniversary with the introduction of a special-edition collection - A100. Back in days, the company was organized in 1910 and strikingly quickly become a leader in digital recording. It confirmed its status as a flagship by the introduction of the CD. In the 70s, Denon created the first PCM digital recorder for studios. In 2018, it made the first in the world 13.2 channel audio/video receiver.

Denon manufactures approximately all of its AVRs in Vietnam in the Sherwood/Inkel factory. All of the XX13 and cheaper receivers are made in China or in Japan as the new 4520CI.

Sony – gradual development through the decades

Sony

The word ‘Sony’ – sound from Latin and an American slang ‘sonny’ – means “a young fellow” and this word was used for a creation of a company’s new name. Sony has made a gigantic leap from a midget company that produced a rice cooker as its first merchandise to a giant in entertainment, publishing, and financial spheres with the full range of manufactured goods. It was based in destroyed by bombing Tokyo in 1946. Only 8 people worked in the electronics repair shop the meant to be a multifarious conglomerate. Masaru Ibuka, a founding father, shortly thereafter was joined by his friend and the story of TTEC started. At that time, home electronic goods were produced predominantly.

The first breakthrough happened in the beginning of the 50s with the introduction of the first Type G recorder in Japan. Also, Sony stated its name as a pioneer in electronics with the first transistor radio, Trinitron color television, and Blu-ray Disc recorder in the country. However, PlayStation, in the beginning of the 2000s and Walkman in 1979, lines that have been still in demand, carved its name in the history. Also, a TR-63 portable radio brought a wide recognition.

Remarkably that even at the lowest price you can get the three HDMI 1.4 inputs, one out, the HDMI 1.4 specification. In contrast, one of the the most pricey devices has the HDMI 1.4 − 6-in/2-out; the advanced Graphical user interface and auto room calibration system.
