Summary: very good home entertainment center receiver, after calibrating the Auddessey with the supplied mic it really came through, Audio that is with Superb Clarity and Realism. Cool, Very Cool............
Summary: This has been a great performing stereo right out of the box. There are so many options to change on it that there has been a bit of a steep learning curve, but really enjoying it now that it's all set the way I want it. So many inputs and outputs that I don't know how it could not have what you need. This was by far the best bang for your buck that I could find without sacrificing any quality.
Summary: The receiver does everything I wanted it to do. I like how it upconverts to component via the red/white/yellow rca's. I have many things hooked up to it and this is a great feature for me. I have HD cable/xbox 360/wii hooked up to the components and I have my Macbook/ipod/and video camera hooked up to the rca's. All of these go into the receiver and 1 component cable out to my Plasma. All works seemlessly! The price was great! Shipping on time as well.
Summary: The AVR-1709 is an exceptional buy. I got this for 218.00 delivered including tax. The Multi-EQ function works really well. I have 5 Polk ceiling mounted speakers and with my older Onkyo 602 it seemed most of the time that you could tell that the speakers were in the ceiling. After running the multi-EQ on the 1709, the speakers disappear, but also sound much more open and life-like, and not just from a single "sweet spot". CD music is amazing as well.
Summary: One of the best A/V Receivers in it's class for the price!!!!! I am verey happy with this unit! lots of features. Only downside is the set up takes a bit to master. Not for the faint of heart. System sounds great paired with Cerwin Vega Tower Speakers.
Summary: I've always wanted to own a Denon Receiver because in my eyes, they seem to be the best. They always seemed to make the best quality products, and when I had the chance to get a Denon, I did. The Denon AVR-1709 is an awesome receiver that puts out a very nice 80 watts x 7 channels, which is more than enough. This is an extremly loud reciver with it's volume range goes from -80 db to a whopping +18 db. My buddy's Harmon/Kardon only gets to +0 db.
Summary: This Denon receiverd is all I expected with the new theater system I put in place. The three HDMI ports on the back panel is a must if you have alot of electronics to put in place with the system. Excellent product.
Summary: I was amazed at AV products prices at amazon are so much cheaper than in singapore. I got mine at around the listed price here, a bundle offer. If not, i won't be getting at such a low price in Singapore. Design I had the silver version which was gorgeous to me as the first AV receiver i've bought. A personal preference which i love silver. 2008 design with the top curve makes it almost looked like the high-end models. Performance This is out of this world for the price.
Excerpt: Ein spitzen Gerät zum unschlagbaren Preis. Leider etwas sehr klobig.. und somit nicht überall unterzubringen Mit Dolby True Surround und sogar einer zweiten Sound Zone. Anschluß stellt selbst für den Laien kein Problem dar und Soundcheck mit im Pakt enthaltenen Mikrofon geht gut von der Hand. Fernbedienung hat ein ansehlichen Design und kann alle Funktionen steuern. In dieser Preisklasse sicherlich nahezu ohne Konkurrenz.
