Summary: The setup was a bit confusing at times if you go off the standard setup but it went alright. The instruction manual reads a little confusing if you aren't an audiophile but again, it works. Once it is ready to go, it sounds AMAZING. I just wish any manual was written for us common folk.
Summary: Unit works as advertised. No problem's so far, and was delivered on-time. Packaging attempt was poor, however. It was shipped in oversize box filled with loose fitting wrapping paper like it was just thrown together. Could not tell what was in it to identify fragility.
Summary: I've been running the AVR for about a month now. So far so good. Overall I've been very happy with the quality. One complaint I do have is the on screen display - I wish it would have more indicators. It really only operates during the setup process and that is it.
Summary: I bought the 1911 to replace an older Onkyo so I would have the 3D pass through and other updated features. I was particulaly impressed with the positive comments and reviews about this unit and the great sound. I have had the unit for a few weeks now.
Summary: Lots of reviews, professional and otherwise, are simply glorified feature comparisons, gleaned from manufacturer web sites. So instead, I thought I'd focus on the most important feature -- sound quality, which seems to differ greatly among receivers.
Summary: For 20 years, I have always purchased what I considered to be the best of the mid-range names in receivers (JVC, SONY, etc). Stepping into the HDMI world, I decided to explore higher quality names such as Denon. By comparison, the sound that the AVR 1911 produces is shocking...I mean jaw-dropping.
Summary: Let me first state that I am long time Denon fan who has purchased several Denon recievers over the past decade, and after owning the 1911 7.1 for several weeks I have to say this is a great AVR with a certain caveat: IMO if you are a true audiophile who appreciates music over movies than you should...
