Seemed like a good value, but...

J. Stee, Amazon
26 December 2013
  • Summary: I was in the market for a no-frills received and hoped this would be it. I received the red blinking light of death a few months after purchase and haven't successfully solved the issue yet. I will stick with the four letter brand staring with S from now on. I was not impressed with my first Denon purchase.

Malfunctioned after one year

M., Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: This receiver functioned well for about a year but then the power button glowed red and the receiver stopped working. Reading the instructions revealed that the red glow might indicate that the speaker wires are shorted or the receiver overheated, neither of which was true. The red glow occurred even when the receiver was cool.

Decided to stop passing through HDMI video

P.Lengstrom, Amazon
3 December 2012
  • Summary: Only 1 Optical and 1 coax audio inputs, but won't pass through HDMI video & when it does, it's only for 10 minutes or so. Gets worse by the week. Second completely unreliable Denon receivers owned now. Why did I come back for seconds? Good reviews. Oops.

Does not play well with HDMI devices

Leonard F. Bell, Amazon
11 August 2012
  • Summary: I made the mistake of not fully considering previous negative reviews and purchased this item based on price. As noted in previous reviews, I had trouble getting *any* HDMI device to work with this receiver. I checked manual and verified connections multiple times. The only HDMI function that would work was the on-screen menu which displayed fine on my TV but that was it. It appears the "handshakes" with the other devices were not successful.

45 days later already having problems

NPerez, Amazon
7 July 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this Denon AVR-1312 5.1 because it seemed like a great value for the price paid. It's been 45 days since purchased and the sound skips and at times is completely gone and I have to turn it off and back on to get it to work for a while. I say for a while because eventually while watching a movie, the sound goes intermittent. I intend to call customer service soon and will later comment on my experience. For now I give it one star.

Very disappointed by HDMI video quality

brianmatic, Amazon
23 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought this receiver for the HDMI pass-through. When I hooked it up I noticed that the picture on my TV was pixelated during fast moving scenes. When I plugged the HDMI back into the my Xbox directly it went away. I was really looking forward to this receiver because I thought Denon was the best. If you are planning to use it for HDMI pass-through I wouldn't recommend it.

READ BEFORE YOU BUY!

Adam Denton, Amazon
6 March 2014
  • Summary: I was amazed to see this amp with 2 HDMI outputs. At the price this amp is going for its almost unheard of. Contemplating buy this product, i went to the DENON website to check the full specs. This is a direct quote form the site: HDMI Switching - input 4 - output 1 And here is a link to the website so you can check the information yourself: [...] As you can see there is only one HDMI output.

Aussen hui, innen pfui!

M. Roche, Amazon
1 August 2014
  • Summary: War zunächst begeistert. Gute Verarbeitung, einfach Bedienung, fairer Preis. Aber nach 2 1/2 Jahren minimalster Benutzung inklusive sorgfältigster Pflege steigt von heute auf morgen die HDMI-Karte aus. Ersatzteile gibt es kaum und wenn dann nur zu Preisen, die einem finanziellen Totalschaden gleichkommen. Also HDMi-Out defekt...Gerät auf den Müll! Das finde ich sehr, sehr schade.

2 Bestellungen Defekt - Warehouse Deals

Matthias, Amazon
27 July 2012
  • Summary: Liefererfahrung: trotz Standard Versand recht zügig, 15.7 bestellt und wäre am 17.7 dagewesen, wenn der Kollege von Hermes nicht die riesen Werkstatt zum abgeben übersehen hätte, somit konnte ich das Paket erst am 18.8 entgegen nehmen. Artikel wie beschrieben: Da der Receiver über Warehouse Deals gekauft wurde und als "befriedigend" deklariert wurde möchte ich dennoch den Zustand beschreiben. 1.
