Summary: The presentation really has an impact. The display board is large and easy to read. Big plus for those of us who are optically challenged as a bat. Controls are well identified. The system set up procedure is very impressive. Using the Audyssey, I discovered a couple speakers were out of phase. Wow! Didn't see that one coming. The sound is outstanding. I purchased Denon because of its reputation for quality.
Summary: Easy to set up and better than my bose. Cheaper too! installed one month ago, integrates with my directtv, blue ray, iphone. Since my TV is already connected to the internet, didn't need any more bells and whistles
Summary: I have never reviewed a purchase before, but feel compelled to comment on Denon customer service. The receiver is fine as advertised and as reviewed before. The complexity of the systems it is designed to control would tax the ability of an owner's manual. Fortunately, the Denon call center, whose staff is immediately available, knowledgeable, pleasant and quick to the task, removes frustration and head banging from the equation.
Summary: After a good experience with Denon's AVR-1312, I decided to step up to a model with graphic equalizer. This is an excellent receiver: great features, great sound quality. I tried using the built-in automatic equalization, which was better than flat equalization but not quite what I wanted so I readjusted it manually to my taste (as I'd done in the past with equalizer-equipped receivers). I really have no reservations, no qualifications.
Summary: Dealing with this store has been easy and productive. Shipment was as promised and delivery was early. The Denon refurbished receiver looks and works like a new one. Denon answered my set-up questions promptly and all systems are "go".
Summary: I bought this Denon AVR-1713 to replace my 12 year-old Yamaha RXV-1000 which finally pooped out. Although there were a lot of good things about the Yamaha, I was never really happy with the sound quality which sounded too 'digital' and thin for my tastes, despite its power. This Denon's sound quality, on the other hand, I like very much - much more natural and full sounding.
Summary: I have been using this receiver for the past three months and overall I am very impressed with it. The audessy setup is a breeze and does most of the settings. In my opinion, that is a great feature this product has. Saves a lot of time. While doing the audessy setup, ensure that all the eight positions are covered starting with the center most and then moving left and right at similar distances. Also the subwoofer loudness needs to be set at 12 o clock position.
