Summary: I just wanted to share my experience with my Denon AVR-1909. I bought it September 2008 for $649.00. As of a few weeks ago, the Denon would shut itself down to a flashing ½ second red light around the power button. Pressing the power button would turn the flashing red light into a solid red light.
Summary: This stereo receiver replaced an older Sony unit, while it takes a while longer to setup the unit performs beyond my expectation. Anyone purchasing this unit, set aside some time, read the manual and enjoy the fantastic sound.
Summary: Every now and then the picture and sound just go off, for about a second. Its been going on ever since I got this product. I have called customer service several times. I would give some of their customer service agents a 0 star and some 2 star and one a 3 star. Issue has not really been resolved.
Summary: THIS IS MY SECOND DENON RECEIVER. IT IS AN ABSOLUTELY AWESOME SOUNDING AND FEATURED UNIT. IT DOES NOT OVERHEAT, OR HAVE HDMI CONNECT PROBS REPORTED ON COMPETING UNITS. HOWEVER, THE SETUP IS A ROYAL P.I.T.A. MANUAL NOT CLEAR ENOUGH TO HELP, NOT VERY INTUITIVE.
Summary: I ordered this receiver in the first week of January. It did not work and after talking to tech support, they advise that it be returned. The supplier, Electronics Expo, received the receiver back on 1/29/10.
Summary: The nuts-n-bolts of this product have already been adequately covered. Denon is guilty as charged for having Tech. Writers imported from the planet Valtar, but there is a work around that will solve all your issues with installation. BATPIG'S DENON-TO-ENGLISH DICTIONARY Denon manuals are terrible.
Summary: This is the list of equipment I used to make my system. Acoustic Audio HD515 In Wall Ceiling 5.1 Home Theater Stereo Speakers. Dayton SA70 70W Subwoofer Amplifier. DLO Home Deluxe Ipod Dock. (Not that happy with it, it has some software hangups). Logiteck 1100 remote control.
Summary: Receiver died only after ten (10) months of average usage. Spent $30 to return unit to Denon for warranty repair. Three (3) to four (4) weeks turn around time. This is a MAJOR inconvenience since this receiver is the cornerstone of my entertainment system.
