Excerpt: With its AVR-1911 AV receiver, Denon appears to be leading the way in moving from older forms of connection to HDMI dominance.

Pros: Ticks all the important specification boxes, converts and scales video information well, industrial-strength audio performance
Cons: Not as subtle, or as spacious, as some rivals, remote is a step backwards
