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.
Summary: Bought a factory refurbished model. Worked out of the box, wired everything up, set up thru the menus and enjoyed for a while. Then I turned it off. Wouldn't turn back on- display starts up then shuts off and power button flashes red. Tech support had me try and "reset the processor" but no dice.
Summary: do not know how it sounds BECAUSE it does NOT COME WITH AN HDMI CORD. if I wpulc have known I would of had one READY. YOU CAN NOT RUN WITHOUT ONE. I THINK ITS A DRAG NOT TO INCLUVE ONE. I MAY VHANGE MY REVIEW WHEN I CAAN HERE THE DAMN THING.
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.
Summary: I purchased this unit on Oct. 2011. Since then the power board has fried in the 2nd month of owning unit. Then just this week it randomly stopped sending a signal to my t.v. I went to walmart and purchased a new hdmi cord to see if that was the problem, unfortunately it wasn't.
Summary: Bought earlier this month. Input HDMI to AVR from SAT recvr died after few days of operation. Direct connection fron SAT recvr to TV worked so SAT recvr is working. Returning AVR, and hope replacement is better. HDMI from BD and PVR to AVR worked ok.
Summary: I NORMALLY DON'T WRITE REVIEWS; HOWEVER ANYONE WHO BUYS THIS RECEIVER IS TAKING A VERY BIG GAMBLE. AFTER CONNECTING MY HDTV, AND BLUERAY PLAYER TO THIS RECEIVER, I NOTICED A DELAY BEFORE THE SOUND COMES ON. THE SOUND WOULD ALSO GO IN AND OUT WHEN I WAS WATCHING TV.
Summary: I've got two things hooked up to it. A projector and a blue-ray player. Sometimes when I put a disk in it can't seem to find it. Turn it on, off, on and then it finds it. Other times you play with it for 15 minutes and it won't find anything.
