Happy to have found Centennial on DVD "movie ..., Amazon
4 weeks ago
Summary: I loved it while it worked but it died after 2 years. This is the second Denon I have purchased in 3 years and both died young. This one died after I lost my electricity but it was plugged into a good surge protector. The first Denon died after I lost electricity but it was not plugged into a surge protector. I am now very suspicious of the quality of Denon receivers!!!
Summary: I hate products that break down just after the warrantee expires. They used to (and may still) call this "built in obsolescence." Every time I play a dvd the system automatically switches to audio setup. The only way around it is to plug in the headphones and the message goes away. Also when I unplug the headphones the sound still stays off (still in headphone mode) until I plug and unplug the phones several times, and then the sound comes back on through the speakers.
Summary: I've owned this receiver for about a year and a half. In that time there have been 2 firmware updates. Neither went smoothly. I thought the box was toast after the first one, but it eventually recovered with some unadvised power cycles to kick it. The second never took. As soon as it starts doing the update the network link goes down and never recovers. I left it overnight but there was no progress, so I was forced to power cycle it.
Summary: I love this receiver. Airplay is the star feature and works almost always. Wish it had more HDMI ports. The On screen display is OK. Not the fanciest interface but it works. Never use Pandora on it but needs improvement. The Audessy calibrates the speakers well. For some reason when I connect them to bose, they show phase error. If you know Bose the connectors come pre-molded with less chance to mess up. When I connected to Martin Logans, there were no more issues.
Summary: Sound quality is AMAZING!!!! We sit listening to it with the windows open and the surround sound is so good that we think the sounds are coming from outside, however they are coming from the movie.....
Summary: Setup is quite easy, and the extra network/apple airplay features are nice. This is my first receiver, so I can't really compare it to anything else, but it's a great starter for someone who is just getting into this sort of thing.
Summary: I purchased this unit to power speakers for an outdoor kitchen and it works great! It is easy to use and the ability to plug my IPhone in the front USB port and play music from my Itunes account made this the perfect unit. I have purchased Denon brand receivers before and you won't find a better receiver for the money!
Summary: I have looked everywhere for a solution and cannot find out if they ever fixed the issue, most blogs say it is a Pandora issue not Denon. Simple fact it wont play my Pandora One which I never really listen to regular radio because I hace enough commercials/ advertising in my life.
Summary: Tested this AVR with two computers with two different versions of iTunes: Previous and new one. The receiver stops playing after some time and locks the device, not allowing you to re-initiate playing tunes through it (Device in use). Called Denon and they said never heard of such problem. Told me to return the equipment as defective. Won't recommend.
