CNET First Look
Denon's AVR-S930H offers top features and performance on a budgetThe Denon AVR-S930H receiver includes both Dolby Atmos and multiroom music compatibility at an affordable price.
But then on AVR-S930H receiver is the very embodiment of the trickle down theory. Take a bunch of features that only appear in high end products and then for a couple;e of years these become part of the entry level. The AVRS730 offers not only Dolby Mac master DTSX but also compatibility with 4k and HDR. Plus [UNKNOWN] own kiosk multi room music System. All for under $500 US. This is the first time in three years that an entry level receiver has offered HEOS. The system includes a series of speakers and now receivers that support most streaming services, including Pandora and Spotify, as well as network playback. [UNKNOWN] are for better systems and Google Chromecast is crazy cheap It's good to see Denon at least offering an alternative. The receiver offers a decent selection of connections, including a total six HDMI ports, with support for the latest video standards, including Dolby Vision. Sound quality is what you're ultimately here for, though. And the Denon is equally good for movies and music. We tried a number of different loudspeakers, including the difficult Elac UB5s And didn't notice any compatibility issues. Well Sony SDR D Antenna might sound better and also offers Google Chromecast capability if you only have $500 to spend, the Denon AVRS7 730 is a very good choice. [MUSIC]
