Summary: I know Denon is a good product. It is well priced and works great for my home theater. I have the Energy Take 5.1 speakers made my Klispch and it is a great match for this A/V system. Love the features for the HDMI isolation and the way you can make 1 dominate while off. no need to set the other settings. easy buttons on the remote to chose your input. great product!
Summary: As an amp it is a really good one. The only thing I do not like is the ipod/hard drive control interface: slow and not very friendly. But these can be used through the dock input... so it's no big deal.
Summary: I'm satisfied with my Dennon reciever I recently purchased..I know I could have bought better but for the price I couldn't ask for more quality...very good quality and would recomend to anyone.
Summary: I used to own a Denon AVR-989 and this receiver seems to meet their usual high quality standards. The general consensus is that the AVR-1612 is a must buy over the bottom of the line AVR-1312. It includes Audyssey which automatically tunes your room to the best settings. I am happy with it so far. It is a full-size receiver so don't expect for it to be slim and sleek or anything.
Summary: I was actually upgraded to the newer model, the 1613, because the provider ran out of 1612s. The receiver is a pretty good receiver with a good "movie" mode for surround sound, but lacks some of the connectivity I was expecting. Since the receiver boasted that it was compatible with Air Play technology, I assumed wrongly that it has wifi connectivity. It doesn't.
Summary: great receiver for the price. i have a medium size living room 5.1 setup and sounds great. $200 delivered cant ask for much more. audessy setup fairly easy. the bad- the remote is of poor quality. no manual! comes with cdrom instead. the manual is a little confusing. i recommend reading "batpig's denon to english dictionary" before deciding which model to purchase.
Summary: My first impressions of the AVR 1612 are good. I think it's one of the best 5.1 Tuners for the price. I've got mine hooked up to the Energy Take Classic 5.1 Surround setup, and it sounds great after using the Audyssey MultEQ auto setup to balance the speakers out. I gave it 4 stars because I had a problem with the video dropping out on the first unit I bought. It worked 99% of the time, but I returned it anyway for fear that the problem would worsen over time.
Summary: I also bought this product at best buy for $300. What an amazing product for the price! Paired with some Klipsch HDT speakers, you can't go wrong if you are looking to do a low budget theater. The audyssey calibration is great. It is by no means comparable to adaptIQ from Bose (I also have a lifestyle system), but again it's 300 bucks compared to 4k so my impressions are amazing.
Guter AV-Receiver in der Einstiegsklasse mit kleinen Mängeln!
