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.
Summary: Had to replace a high end Sony receiver as part of a HDMI technology upgrade of the media room. Didn't want to spent $900 and managed to find this device. The HD up scale is pretty decent. The HDMI switching is ok - it doesn't seem to like it when by blue ray switches between different video streams, e.g. from the Homeland Security warning to the first preview this device will stop sending video to my projector and cause it to show the default blue screen.
Summary: Please take this review with a grain of salt. I suspect this is an excellent receiver but does not sound nearly as good as the 7 year old Yamaha that it has temporarily replaced. There is a 97 page manual on how to operate the unit and I suspect I have things configured improperly. I run a Bose 6 speaker audio system and cannot get the rear channel surround to work. Maybe its just me but have tried every configuration I can extract from the manual.
Summary: Our 20 year old receiver needed updating...and voila, after reading multiple reviews I decided on this one. After ordering it, the seller sent me an email that the 1912 wasn't available...so they upgraded it to the 1913 without an extra charge! the setup was super easy. Every time we get a new component it takes us a while to get everything connected, but this one was very easy. Do buy the banana plugs and several hdmi cables, you'll need them.
Summary: We purchased this receiver for the express purpose of listening to my Pandora account. We play more music than TV, and with a 5 yr old and 3 yr old, it's nice not worrying about what a DJ could say or what song pops up. Beginning at the end of November, Pandora made some privacy changes which effected denon receivers streaming Pandora. It is December 17th and the issue continues...
