Summary: Upon initial setup and tuning I was very pleased. The sound quality is nice and functions smoothly. However, as many others have commented, the issue is airplay. It doesn't. It will come and go for weeks at a time. Regardless of what network settings or resets I do.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
