Denon x2600h vs s950h "X vs S" ?
Greeting AVS fam,
I'm having a hard time discerning the differences between these two receivers from the "X" line & the "S" line. (Other than the price... the x2600h is $799 vs $599 for the s950h). Can someone break down what is gained by jumping up to the X? The X has 5 watts per channel of power higher... but that is a relatively small diff.
I'm looking to upgrade my old Harman Kardon to a new mid-range Denon receiver. Only running 2.1 at the moment, but may go up to a max of 5.1. Will run quite a bit of HDMI through the receiver though (Xbox One, PS4, Nvidia Shield, Xfinity, etc) so video passthrough capability is important. I like the Denon "sound" for music... so that is why I have settled on these options for Denon receivers... but for my relatively basic use... wondering if there is anything gained by moving up to the X?
I appreciate any advice/opinions. Thx!
