Excerpt: Purchased to replace an old KLH receiver for home theater in small to medium size room. Ease of use is excellent. Overall sound quality is excellent. Great budget minded receiver with higher end features.
Excerpt: This receiver arrived very promptly. After getting all connections and calibrations made the receiver performs well. It is a fairly basic receiver without a lot of bells and whistles and has just the basic connections. However the sound is great and this is a nice receiver for those interested in good sound and performance and not a lot of advanced features. I liked the Audyssey software for calibrating the speakers. I would purchase from this vendor again.
Excerpt: I bought the Denon AVR-1613 to replace a 19 yr old Denon stereo receiver I used to power additional speakers for the TV. I purchased a 2012 TV with HDMI ARC technology, and wanted a new amplifier with HDMI ARC technology to run these same front speakers. ARC stands for audio return channel, and allows sound over an HDMI connection. That means one cable from the TV to the AVR-1613, with everything else such as a Blu-ray player, cable set top box, game center, etc.
