Summary: I bought this Denon a little over 2 years ago. I must say while it was working, it sounded great. After about 18 months it started to have intermittent problems with the video signal. The sound would work fine but it wouldn't have any video signal. If I turned the receiver off and then back on the video signal would work. The problem persisted until about a month ago. At that time the video signal went out and did not come back on.
Summary: I had this delivered on 7/06/2012 and a little over a year after it started to turn off by itself. Prior to this my HDMI inputs began to fail one by one. The cables were fine it was the amplifier.
Summary: I purchased the Denon AVR-1612 previously and immediately after installing in a well ventilated area the unit would shut off for no apparent reason. I put a fan by it to see if it needed to be cooled down and it still would shut off. That unit was returned to Amazon and replaced with a new unit, same make and model. It worked a little better than the first one but then again this one also started shutting off after only several minutes of playing.
Summary: I bought this unit and was impressed by it the first few days. It had decent sound and it did what I expected for the price. I had always bought higher end receivers in the past and thought I would try this one in my home theater. The receiver I had been using had no HDMI inputs or outputs, but was a good quality Sony ES receiver. After about a week, the Denon would automatically turn off at medium to higher volumes, like the amp was clipping.

Summary: Aufgrund der vielen positiven Bewertungen und des unschlagbaren Angebotes von Amazon habe ich mich kurzentschlossen zum Kauf dieses Receivers entschieden, zumal mir DENON als Produzent hochwertiger Geräte bekannt ist. Die Lieferung erfolgte in der gewohnten Amazon-Qualität sehr schnell und sicher verpackt.
