I’ll be giving this as a gift to my BF. Not sure that I should go for this or the Onkyo’s series.
I’m confused between this and the Onkyo receiver. I want to buy it for my BF who’ll use it mostly for watching action movies and playing PS5 games.
The receiver is perfect for my home theater. Can’t wait to get it delivered.
Love this receiver by Denon. It boasts so many features at this price.
