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. It has GUI on the screen that isn't high quality but allows for many settings to be changed. A feature I haven't yet found(If I haven't, it should be easier) or doesn't exist is allowing different video and audio outputs.
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. The unit arrived in its own packaging (as usual for larger items like this) and I was little skeptical of how it would function based on how ragged the box looked.
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. The only thing that I was somewhat disappointed by is it doesn't seem to have enough power to drive the 12" Cerwin-Vega main speakers I've been using.
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. even with the amp sitting by itself on a cold tile floor with nothing else near. This was worse when all five speakers and the sub were plugged in.
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. It uses a different frequency or something for the on and off (and standby) signal, so my one button cable remote doesn't know what to do with it. Nothing a decent universal remote can't handle.
Summary: Great entry level A/V receiver. The iPod dock does not play through the receiver so if you want to buy one just know that you have to buy a separate video cable to see things on your TV. I gave up, saved the 100 plus bucks, and just used a spliter cable to run the iPod through the audio dock hook ups in back. I'm happy with that. Dont really need the rest. I do enjoy hooking the laptop through an HDMI and getting great sound off you tube!
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. The first thing I noticed was that this was a well built product which certainly looked the part. The connections at the rear almost seem to overwhelm me and far exceeded my requirements.
Summary: Ich habe die Anlage 2011 beim Cyber Monday ergattern können und kann bisher wirklich nichts Negatives berichten. Unterstützt alle gänigen Formate, satter Sound, reichlich Anschlüsse. Einen Stern muss ich dennoch abziehen, denn manchmal muss ich die Anlage neustarten weil sie beim Umschalten von Pc zum Tv das optische Audiosignal des PCs scheinbar verliert.
