what does this mean? about khz

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
this is about comprasion of latest pioneer and onkyo network hifis.
h-xm71 is pioneer
cr-n755 is onkyo

so it says onkyo can go to 24/96khz but pioneer can go to 24/44.1khz
what is this? about sound quality? or about wifi reach ?

i ll listen flac, 320 kbps mp3 and cd s and internet radios from my laptop as aupeo, spotify (send from my laptop by wifi)

this is the only important thing between these 2 products. if it s not an important thing i ll go with pioneer. because onkyo is 2 times expensive in my country. thank u


"The other welcome addition is the DLNA approved UPnP networking. The Pioneer is capable of acting as a UPnP client and is supplied with a wireless aerial as standard which means that unlike the Onkyo, there are no addition costs involved in getting the X-HM71 running in free space. The Pioneer is slightly more limited than the Onkyo in that it seems to have maximum supported sample rate of 24/44.1kHz whereas the CR-N755 can go to 24/96kHz. The end result is swings and roundabouts; the Pioneer is easier to get going than the Onkyo but the Onkyo can do more once you do so."

The 24s are the length of binary data words that are used to encode sound. Look up PCM on Wikipedia.
48 and 96 are sample rates, or the number of binary data words per second.

Both 48 and 96 (and the most commonly used sample rate 44.1 kHz ) are entirely adequate for superior sound

48 KHz will suffice.

I doubt that. In terms of audible sound quality the most important difference is related to how these AVRs interact with your speakers and your listening room. The relevant alphabet soup is in this case Audyssey versus YPAO.

Twice the price is a huge difference.

So the Pioneer has built-in wireless networking while the Onkyo only supports wired networking (though wireless capability can be obtained with an add-on).?

That one comes down to how easy it is to string a network cable..

Yes, them and just about everybody else.

You mean you aren't thrilled at the idea of paying $70 for something that can be had for less than 1/3? :-(

Seems like the common sense thing to do.

my other idea is to purchase new yamaha ysp-3300 sound projector and use it as a hifi for music listening as well as watching tv.


look at the specs.. it can be a perfect solution
