Summary: I purchased this item four years ago and I have not had any issues at all. I paid $280 back then and I don't regret it at all. It works perfectly just as it did the first day I bought it. I have hooked it up to Sony speakers, DVR, DVD player with great results. It thumps the bass which I like.
I looked around at the reviews and this Denon looked good. I was not disappointed at all

Summary: When my old home theater receiver died, I looked around at the reviews and this Denon looked good. I was not disappointed at all. It slid right in the cabinet and hooked right up where the other one was.
Summary: one of the best sounding receivers i have ever had the chance of buying. my home theater is the best i think some one is knocking at the door when its just the movie my wife and kids are watching in the living room lol. i love it so much its the best 299.99 i have ever spent.
Summary: I bought a AVR-1611 a year ago and use it with Energy Take Five Classic speakers, a Samsung 3D BluRay player and a very good Panasonic 42" 1080P Plasma TV. What an awesome system. My wife and I go upstairs once a week for our in-house "night at the movies" to watch and listen to this system - we can...
Summary: There is definitely a learning curve to this piece of equipment and a big step up from my basic RCA unit I had used for so long. Plenty (4) of HDMI inputs. The Audyssey set up was a nice feature and, despite my best efforts to make setup difficult, got things up and going.
Summary: As a nontechnical person set up was fairly difficult, but the technicians worked with me on the phone to solve all of the problems. The receiver has a full rich sound compared to my 15 year old NAD (thin, lacked punch). i paid $268 shipped as a discontinued model. This was well worth it.
Summary: This receiver is quite impressive for the modest price, especially if you can find it refurbished. I have owned this for around a year and, until recently, I never really dug too deep into it. I finally just set up the remote to control my other misc electronics such as: blu ray player, TV, etc.
Summary: Great Unit. Was getting this real cheap but upgraded to Denon AVR1712 because they were out of them and I am glad I did. It has all you need for a small to medium Home Theater. No problems at all. Wonderful sound. Crappy Remote.
