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. It is feature packed and you will need to wade through the 8-1/2' by 11-1/2" owner's manual consisting of 64 pages. There is a lot of cross referencing using page numbers so you can easily find what you are looking for.
Summary: Purchased this item as an upgrade from another Denon unit. Receiver has been everything that it was expected to be and more for a better than expected price. Excellent sound and HDMI switching.
Summary: I recently bought this AVR and I'm very happy with it. I've tried Sony, Yamaha and Onkyo HTiBs (each bigger than the prior, in that order), then I finally come to buy separated speakers and this receiver. I long read all the reviews and decided to buy once I was sure the price-performance relation was the one I was looking for.
Summary: This was purchased to replace a 15 year old JVC Receiver that was damaged by lightening. It sounds great and has more features than I can use. At some point it will be perfect for Home Theater upgrades.
Summary: Pros: - Upscaling SD/Analog to HD - 7.1 - Multizone - HDMI Cons: Only one: Do not upscale HD with this. A second one might be underpowered in some situations. Do not use this without an active subwoofer. Bought this as a replacement for my 8 year old JVC 5.1 DD set. The lower power rating was obvious when listening to my existing source material. This was remedied after acquiring an active subwoofer.
Summary: I purchased the avr-1910 to replace another Denon receiver that I've had for 16 plus years. After reading many reviews about the difficultes of set up and the manual being hard to understand, I was somewhat concerned that I didn't possess the abilities to set this thing up. It was EASY. The Audyssey set up program worked like a charm. The sound is great for both movies and music.If you read the manual in short sections, it makes sense.
Summary: I setup this receiver a few days ago and am very impressed with what a difference it made to my surround sound system. This is replacing a 7 or 8 year old 6.1 Sony receiver. The difference in sound quality is like night and day. For the record, I am also running this receiver in 6.1 mode. First, I did not find the user manual or remote control to be all that bad like some other reviews.
Summary: This is a FANTASTIC Receiver! Sales Techs at BestBuy have said that Denon Receivers are hard to setup- but not these new Denon AVRs! Setup was really easy. It has 4 HDMI- I use AT&T U-Verse and their HDMI on the Motorola VP1216 just doesn't work- so i had to use Composite wires but, I setup a Samsung Blue-Ray- all I have to do turn it on- the Denon switches to DVD mode and Wa-La! it's done.
Summary: I first would like to mention that this I bought this via OneCall, and they had some amazing customer service. When I receieved this amplifier and used it, all seemed great, until it randomly started shutting down with a rapidly blinking red light. I checked all my connections again and again and everything seemed fine.
