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: 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 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.
Summary: We didn't have an HD TV when we purchased this, so the initial setup was rather complicated with our TV, TiVo, VCR, DVD player, and various game systems. It looks like it's much easier if you can use HDMI. Once we got it all set up, though, it has been easy to use and the audio quality is fantastic!
