Pioneer VSX-933 vs Denon AVRS740H review made to compare two receivers that belong to the same price range, which have different total output power – 560W (Pioneer) versus 390W (Denon).
The Pioneer VSX-933 is a 7.2-channel network receiver. The VSX-933's power is 135W per channel, and the Direct Energy design provides wideband reproduction of frequencies for a full soundstage with an excellent balance.
Denon is equipped with 7 amplifiers (with a declared power of 75W each) with DTS-HD master audio decoder, 2 of which can be used for the sound of high-altitude channels or additional rear ones. 7.2-channel receiver sounds dynamic, the bass is sophisticated and neat, and perfectly matched on all channels. In the Denon AVRS740H vs Pioneer VSX-933 review, it is worth noting that Pioneer has more built-in decoders.
