Summary: When I purchased this receiver, I was BRAND NEW to the receiver world. I had some HTIAB (home theater in a box) setups in the past but I was ready to go to the next step. WOW, I am glad I went with the Denon AVR1610!!!!!!!!
Summary: I recent bought this receiver with the Klipsch HD500 speaker set. The combo deal was great. I like all the features and the auto setup with the included mic was a breeze. I'm not an audiophile so take my review with a grain of salt. It sounds a ton better than my old system.
Summary: don't even think about reading and using the manual that comes with the receiver from denon. look up "badpigs" translation on the avs forum and save yourself some headaches. the receiver works as it should. still tweeking the settings.
Summary: This is a well positioned device with many desirable features one might expect for an upper-end receiver. As such, it is a great value. Set up requires patience and the willingness to read the instructions before you begin.
Very good product, but not intuitive menus/documentation

Summary: I've got this receiver set up between a Mac Mini and a Samsung 52" LCD TV. The quality of the image and sound is excellent and I'm very happy with the end product. My only criticism is the relatively poor documentation that ships with the product.
Excerpt: Hallo liebe Community, habe gerade gesehen, dass für den Denon AV-Receiver noch kein Erfahrungsbericht vorliegt. Daher mache ich mich mal daran. Jetzt sollte man meinen können, so ein Gerät sei schwer zu konfigurieren. Ich muss sagen Jein...
Pros: Guter Klang, vielfältige Einstell - und Anschlussmöglichkeiten, Preis
Cons: Menüführung teilweise umständlich, Anleitung verschachtelt
