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.
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).
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.
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.
Summary: Very nice unit. The manual leaves a lot to be desired, but it does help. Programing the receiver is the hardest part. Once you get the programing done, you are in for a treat. Great sound and video.
Summary: I purchased the Denon AVR1610 but received instead the Denon AVR1611. I wasn't sure if this was a mistake, and after contacting the company, they told me they were out of stock and automatically upgraded me to the AVR1611.
Am I hearing things now? Yes! Switched from 7.1 to 5.1

Summary: I needed a receiver that would switch my HDMI devices and allow my Samsung TV to remain on the DVI input for everything. Looked into an HDMI switch, but then my son-in-law talked me into getting this Denon unit to replace my Sony 7.1 receiver.
