Summary: I bought this in 2012 with the intention of setting up a 7.1 system. Currently I'm only rocking a 2.1 system, with 2 more loudspeakers coming soon, but this receiver does everything I needed it to. Easy to setup and looks lovely.
Summary: I bought this about 20 months ago, and 6 months into owning it I started getting blue rectangles on my screen when using any media -- cable, Bluray, etc. Turns out there was a production run of these with an HDMI card that goes bad. My warranty experience with Denon was great. I packaged the receiver up very carefully, but it was still damaged in shipping. Denon didn't hold me at fault and still sent out a replacement unit that has worked flawlessly since then.
Summary: I bought this AVR over a year ago. Hookup was easy and the Audyssey software did a very good job of setting up the speakers. All of my components, and TV, are connected via HDMI and I have not experienced any compatibility issues.
Summary: This is definitely a great receiver, it has a full range of inputs and supports everything without needing any switches. The receiver itself is fairly easy to use but still supports a lot of advanced options, and the ability to connect online for internet radio is definitely a plus.
head & shoulders above every other receiver I've owned

Summary: I'm a recent convert from string of Onkyo receivers. I never did any research beyond the fact that the Bose store (where I purchased my surround sound speakers) sold me my first receiver. So I'd assumed that if Bose sold it to me to go along with the speakers, it must be a sound choice. Boy was I mistaken!! Anyway, after extensive research online and asking many musician friends, I began to look at Denon. This receiver rated among the top in it's category.
Summary: This is my first real AV receiver and I couldn't have made a better choice. I upgraded from a sony home theater receiver that i had for 5yrs and after extensive research and probing with my knowledgeable best friend I chose the Denon AVR 1912. The delivery was very timely and there was no damage to the product. It was carefully wrapped and packaged by the shipper.
Summary: This product actually worked great for a few months and then just stopped passing anything out of the HDMI out. After several failed resolution attempts by Denon service over the phone, I finally had to pack it back up in its original box and send into a service center. Several weeks later, after a replaced digital board, I got it back and it worked for 3 days before it started randomly dropping the HDMI output again.
Summary: I researched receivers a great deal before buying this one. You cannot beat the value on a receiver with Internet connectivity. I coupled this with Netgear Universal WIFI Adapter. The Apple Airplay is an ease to use and sounds great! Highly recommended.
