Denon AVR-X1500H or Yamaha RX-V685

Hi,
What would you choose between these 2 if sound quality is preference?
As far as I see in review, only difference is in HDMI output of 2 in Yamaha Vs 1 in Denon unless i miss something.

thanks in advance

@Newuser2018 What speakers do you have? Do you need more than 7 channels? Do you have a subwoofer?



both are good entry level receivers.



Yamaha has dual hdmi out, zone 2 preouts, LR preouts for adding an external amp and musiccast wireless ecosystem.


Denon has a little more advanced room correction in audyssey xt, detachable power cord and heos eco system.

I need to buy speakers anyway.
First i thought i can buy a Receiver and then speakers? Or first i should identify speakers and then receiver?
The reason is, somehow I wanted to buy Yamaha

Check and compare closely the features of each...
But a couple of points are clear, Yamaha is #1 for reliability and the only AVR brand whose product is HDMI/HDCP certified..
Having HDMI/HDCP certification is crucial to assure the best interoperability between HDMI components...

Just my $0.02...

@Newuser2018 always get the best speakers you can afford, then get a good sub and then use whatever is left to get the best avr you can.

The better the speakers the better the sound. Speakers will have much more impact on sound quality than the AVR. In short, good speakers will sound good on a $200 AVR and cheap crap speakers will still sound like crap on a $2000 flagship AVR. Shop accordingly.
