Being able to compare Yamaha RX-V583 and Denon AVR-S930H gave us an insight into what of them would be better for home theater configuration. According to the results of our review, Yamaha RX-V583 received 7.3 points out of 10 possible, and Denon AVR-S930H was rated 7.8 points. Both AV receivers were introduced in 2017. AVR-S930H is more performable in terms of audio broadcast than the RX-V583.
For the built-in amplifier, the devices received different marks - 7 and 8, respectively, on a 10-point scale.
The number of channels is equal to the number of possible connected speakers. Both receivers can handle the 7.2-channels configuration.
RMS stands for the actual power of the receiver. The higher this value, the louder the sound can be produced. The differences between the models in terms of RMS power are significant - for the AVR-S930H this value is 90/8 W/Ohm, and for the RX-V583 it is 80/8 W/Ohm.
|Stereo power (RMS), W/Ohm||80/8, 145/6||90/8, 125/6|
|Output impedance, Ohm||8, 6||8, 6|
|THD in stereo, %||0.09||0.08|
After reviewing the audio features of each model, we can rate the RX-V583 8 out of 10, and the AVR-S930H - 6.
Bi-amping is the amplification of one speaker with two amplifiers. This amplification method has a positive effect on sound quality. Bi-amping is possible only on the RX-V583.
Most receivers now come with a microphone included. It is with the help of this microphone that the auto-calibration system functions, which adjusts the sound of the receiver to the room.
