Summary: I purchased the AVR1713 and a pair of higher end speakers from a Best Buy in April, 2013, for our living room sound system, for $350. We routed several components through it, including an Apple TV, a Blu-ray player and a cable box.
Summary: This was a perfect unit. I didn't mind the price for a quality item, but then the power went out during an update. The update was frozen for about 40 minutes... the power went out. Now it is stuck and I can't get the update to finish. The unit will no longer stream with airplay.
Summary: This is the second Denon receiver that I have bought. Denon is junk. The first one(a differnt model) lasted 12 months, this one(AVR-1713) lasted only 6 months. Also, they are not user friendly at all. Go with another brand.
Summary: Nach 2 Jahren und 14 Tagen hat der Denon den Geist aufgegeben! Gratulation, dass nennt man geplante Obsolenz. Ich war von Anfang nicht 100% begeistert und hätte das Miststück zurückgeben sollen. Im Gegensatz zu meinem 25 Jahre alten Technics war der Sound eher mau.
