Summary: Bought this unit with hopes of creating a great home theater experience. It was not to be. Ended up taking it back to Best Buy for a refund. The set up never ends. I spent more time trying to get my spkr arrangement to sound right than I did enjoying the sound.

Summary: When I purchased this receiver in 2010 I was looking for one that could provide me with a home theater experience along with SACD and DVD-Audio playability. This Denon has done very well with those requirements. There is a lot to learn with this receiver.
Summary: Owned this for 4 years, died this week of apparent hdmi board failure, no audio or video on any hdmi connection.

After reading the current reviews on the Yamaha, entry level, I went on a search for other brands. After reading the review for Denon's 1910 on [...
Summary: Bought in April 2010, died in August 2013. I find myself almost mirroring another reviewer who hated the same things I did. The only thing bad about this thing dying on me is that I spent $400 on it and now I've got a $400 nothing.

Summary: Check out the savings at Electronics expo! Used coupon code WS901X5750 and got the Denon for under $400.00.This is a great receiver. The 1910 powers my Paradigm monitors and sound far better then my Onkyo did.
