What customers say about "Features"
Onkyo TX-NR696 7.2 Channel AV Receiver
  • Big amount of applications it's well equipped to handle most tasks.
  • Onkyo NR696 is also THX certified unlike the mid range Denon receivers, and THX Cinema mode sounds awesome.
  • Dolby Vision (HDR) passes through it fine and the picture looks great. So far I have a 4k blu ray player and PC going through it and all's well.
  • The software is very competent. The interface is clean and the firmware controls the electronics chip sets like a champ.
  • I'm noticing video blackouts on multiple HDMI ports. The screen will randomly go black for a few seconds, but the audio will continue playing.
Denon AVR-X2600H 7.2 Channel 4K UHD AV Receiver
  • Detailed fine tuning can be done with the Audyssey MultEQ Editor App.
  • The AVR remote app is rather basic, but it works for its purpose of controlling the main functions of the receivers.
  • I don't even care if the apps can't automatically locate the receiver, I can manually enter the IP address in the apps and have them work.
  • It is easy to use with Denon App on my cellphone to remote control it. Good staff with a good price.
  • With the exception of the USB input issues and HEOS app, I really don’t have much to complain about.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Onkyo TX-NR696 7.2 Channel AV Receiver
  • It's plenty of connections here and were no any problems with connected devices like PS4, TV with speakers.
  • I've been pleasantly surprised how well this receiver can be configured to fit many different setups.
  • Setup is easy and it includes a microphone to automatically set the volume for all the speakers. You can relabel inputs and re-assign them.
  • Hooking up to the WiFi was easy. It connects perfect and there is no any signal loss.
  • Unfortunately, when throwing podcasts/videos/movies via Bluetooth from a phone, computer, or tablet to the TV, the audio cuts out after 5-10 minutes of play.
Denon AVR-X2600H 7.2 Channel 4K UHD AV Receiver
  • All HDMI ports on this receiver are 4K, HDR, BT2020, HDCP 2.2 compatible. One would expect nothing less.
  • No matter what I plugged in to the port, it failed, take that same input and place it in any other HDMI port and it worked fine.
  • This has wired and wireless capabilities, although I primarily use the wireless for my purposes. I like it.
  • I connected to my network quickly and easily and updated the receiver as soon as it connected.
  • The amp has many glitches in the firmware. It will lose configuration and not output to any of the speakers- requiring a reset and reconfigure.
