Great amp, and the common no sound problem is a simple fix

  • Summary: I purchased this receiver about two years ago at the end of 2010, initial configuration was difficult until I found a good guide online about how to use the Audyssey Microphone to setup the receiver. After doing this it sounded great and has continued to sound great. I did about a year in start to suffer from the sound dropping on the receiver and powering off and back on was the only way it would work again, after a while even this didn't work and I did a LOT of...

NOT FOR EVERYONE

  • Summary: This is my first receiver with all channels in one component (in other words, AV receiver) that I've bought, so I don't have anything to compare it with other than my other stand-alone stereo and mono receivers and amplifiers, but I will do the best I can to give a reasonably helpful review. I got this for our bedroom system after looking for the best reviewed and most economical AV receivers on Amazon. Luckily I found it for a total of $190 shipped, in good condition.

Junk

Martino, Amazon

  • Summary: Does anyone make good receivers anymore? I bought this receiver a few years ago from a local audio store to replace an older Pioneer receiver that is still going strong after 15 plus years of use. The reason that I replaced the Pioneer was because this one had HDMI inputs and was the only brand that was sold by this store. I had some handshake issues but was able to overcome them and thought I had one of the better brands.

Great receiver for 5.1 sound in guest bedroom

  • Summary: Purchased this receiver in 2009 to power 5 speakers and subwoofer in a guest room in my father's house. Powers 3 energy speakers for the front left, center and right speakers as well as two BOSE in-wall speakers (father picked them, not me). The subwoofer is an energy model purchased at the iwilei costco in honolulu. Still in use today.

Cantankerous receiver.

R. Garrison "slow rider", Amazon
3 March 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this receiver to use in a full sized home theater room. I already had a Denon 889 so I thought my experience with that would aid me in setting up the 1610. Well, the setup was the same but this receiver has great difficulty with HTCP through HDMI and from time to time it just won't handshake. Also, on occassion the sound would completely drop out.

Excellent quality, value

D. Watne, Amazon

  • Summary: I am very pleased with this receiver, now that I have it up and running. It has so many features and is somewhat complicated so it took some time to get everything working. It replaced a receiver that was 20 years old so the difference is incredible. It arrived sooner than expected and was packaged very well. I recommend the receiver and the vendor.

Great sound, it does what it says it can do

  • Summary: Very good product, plenty of inputs, great upscaling through HDMI out. The sound is very powerful and clear, but the "graphic" design of the menu is horrible but easy to use.

Great Unit For The Price

Theodore T Theodore, Amazon
29 November 2010
  • Summary: Works great, easy to set up and the on-screen directions for speaker calibration is easier to understand than the printed instructions. By the way the latter is a great feature that makes speaker calibration very easy. We're not talking about audiophile equipment here so please accept the praise above as relative to price.
