Denon makes excellent quality electronics and that's all I purchase.

Summary: The receiver arrived in a few days, faster than I expected. The unit works well, but I was little surprised to find a few scratches on the faceplate, but the I could not be happier with the performance of the receiver. The unit is very similar to another Denon I own, so set up was easy. The sound is very clean and does not color the sound trough my JBLs. I have bought other Denon AVR units before and all have performed extremely well.
Summary: So far so good. It doesn't have HDMI, but that wasn't a requirement to me and quite frankly doesn't matter. I hook my HDMI to my TV and then run a single optical cord to the receiver, and voila! This was the perfect upgrade for me and being a loyal Yamaha fan, I was hesitant to buy anything but. Now I'm very happy with the Denon and after a few more days of reading up on the settings and options, I'll be set.
Summary: I really enjoy my AVR-1905. However, after less than 1.5 years I lost the left channel on the analogue audio. My attempts to contact Denon USA customer service were completely frustrating: long--we're talking about 25-30 minutes--periods on hold, then, once getting someone to pick up--if anyone picked up at all, that person either could not speak discernable English or simply had no technical expertise at all and could not answer the questions.
Be cautious about going Denon until you do some research

Summary: Just learned that Denon,of which I own a high end cassette deck, has outsourced its parts and accessories to a company in Florida. This may or may not be a good thing,but I do not like being referred by DNN holdings to another place when I just want to buy a remote control for one of their cassette decks. Yes the remote for the deck comes with their receivers, and the implication is that I might want to buy a receiver and get the remote.
Summary: I am extremely happy that I chose Denon AVR-1905. It is more than an entry-level receiver that offers 7.1 output and plenty of connections. I have it hooked up in 6.1 mode and it sounds awesome. Component video up-conversion is a blessing while connecting to your T.V. You don't have to fiddle with multiple remotes any more since you connect just one cable to your T.V monitor. I get great picture quality even when I am watching VHS.
Summary: Salve a tutti. Questa mia premessa è perchè in giro si vedono di compatti dvd+amplificatore+casse che si spacciano per veri sistemi home theater e invece sono null'altro che un modo per buttare via dei soldi , pochi ma sempre persi. Vi faccio un esempio e poi passo alla mia esperienza. A casa ho un vecchio stereo della Pioneer acquistato nel lontano 1981. Allora lo pagai 1.200.000 lire con lettore di cassette, radio, amplificatore e giradischi e relative casse a tre vie.
Pros: Versatilità e buona costruzione per gli audiofili di primo livello
Cons: Non ha il microfono per la regolazione automatica
Summary: Dopo circa 4 anni son riuscito finalmente a trovare il successore del mio ampli Marantz. Cercavo un ampli che avesse un discreto numero di ingressi, in special modo digitali, ed avesse le uscite video non solamente in composito o S-Video ma anche in component. Inoltre volevo un ampli che "suonasse" bene anche con la musica. La mia scelta è caduta sul Denon AVR-1905. Il look è essenziale, senza tanti fronzoli.
Summary: Bardzo dóbrze sprawdzją się w lżejszej muzyce (Clannad "Legend"). W cięższej (Therion "Lemuria", Andromeda "II=I", Blind Guardian "Nightfall in the Middle Earth") trochę gubią się niższe rejesrty. Chóry nie są tak potężne jak powinny. Bas za słaby (przynajmniej przy tym ustawieniu głośników - 2 m od ściany w pomieszczeniu 35 m2). Na pierwszym planie: blachy, gitary i wokale, lekko w tle reszta perkusji. Niskie rejestry w tle.
