Summary: As a low end product Denon came out with a solid offering. The receiver has quick select which is useful as well as the AUX inputs on the front which also help. The dial is click based so it doesn't feel like an infinity dial.
Summary: Ordered this Friday morning, receiver showed up mid-day Saturday. Excellent shipping via Amazon Fulfillment as usual. I bought this from Amazon's Warehouse Deals as "Used - Very Good" with the description reading cosmetic damage to the front and sides of the unit.
Summary: I've had my Denon receiver hooked up for over a week now and I'm very VERY pleased with it. I'm the type who researches products inside and out before purchasing. From what I've found, the AVR-1312 has the most features for the price. The sound quality is awesome and the setup was a snap.
Summary: Cannot beat this receiver for the price; however, tech support confirmed that this receiver CANNOT drive 4 ohm speakers. I will simply be using it with Klipsch in-wall speakers to enhance the TV experience so not to worry.
Much better than its price would suggest -- with reservations.

Summary: Update: After a few days experience with this unit, I have to downgrade it to four stars. 1) I have had the same overheating/cutting out problem that others have reported. I could not get through a complete Beethoven 9th without the amp shutting down multiple times.
Summary: I've had this product for about a month now and overall I am pleased with the purchase. A great unit for the price. Very easy on-screen setup, excellent sound quality though my Bose speakers. The only drawback might be that I can't use my cable remote to turn the unit on and off.
Summary: As you can see from the title, I am no expert in the field of high fidelity or in fact home cinema systems. Before choosing this product, I decided to read independent reviews all of which gave this product a glowing report and value for money.
