Summary: Great price, but what a pain to program. Steve Jobs would have had a fit. You will need to have a monitor attached to set it up and yes the rca video output does not work to be used as a monitor you have to use HDMI, shame on you! I want to use a cheap 7" LCD monitor.
Summary: This receiver is great in some ways and annoying in other ways. The sound and features are awesome. It's modern in the fact that there are many different ways to connect devices (HDMI, USB, AUX, AirPlay). Most of the features work flawlessly. AirPlay could be improved.
Summary: I can't really compare the quality of audio to other receivers, but it does a good job with my 5.1 channel setup. The problem is that there is no built-in wifi, and when using an internet bridge (Netgear WNCE 2001) the audio stutters.
Summary: Overall, this is a good receiver. I've had it for 6 months and the audio quality is great. Unfortunately, it suffers from a firmware bug where AirPlay streaming audio will pop in and out every 2 seconds. The only [temporary] fix is to unplug the unit and plug it back in again.
Summary: FINAL UPDATE: Denon did finally produce a firmware upgrade which fixed the Airplay and network stuttering for me. They have also updated the iPhone Denon remote control software several times. Things now appear to be stable and working as designed.
Summary: This is a 5 star receiver, but I have enough problems with bugs that I have to rate it 3 stars for the moment. Sometimes switching between HDMI ports takes several tries to get it working. The networking side of this device can also be quite buggy at times.
Summary: Ich halte schon lange nach einem AV Receiver Ausschau, der in der Preisklasse bis 500€ einen guten Klang und eine unkomplizierte Bedienung bietet. Da ich kein Surround benötige, liegt der Fokus vor allem auf dem gutem Klang im Stereo Bereich.
Summary: Ich habe mir den Denon 1713 vor allem gekauft um damit Musik von einem Medienserver per DLNA zu hören (Ich hatte mir dafür das Western Digital MyBook Live 2 TB gekauft). Dafür habe ich alle meine CDs in FLAC-Dateien umgewandelt und auf den Medienserver kopiert.
