Summary: I got this receiver to replace a Denon stereo receiver from the early 90s. I wasn't necessarily looking for another Denon, but this seemed to have everything I was looking for and was reasonably priced. It's serving as the control center for my various devices (cable box, PS3, etc.
Summary: The AVR 1912 is an excellent hifi receiver. My selection primarily as high quality stereo amplifier for my network audio player. One of features found in the upper mid class is the pure dirict setting that effectively switches off all video processing to yield a "clean" audio signal path.
Great Function...Takes an engineering degree to understand the remote

Summary: Pros: -Airplay works great -Tons of HDMI hookups -Sound is great Cons: -User interface looks like it was designed in 1998. Seriously, what year is it? Words cannot do justice to just how pathetic the onscreen interface is when you airplay. Just brace yourself for it.
Summary: great feature list and sound for the price, the on screen interface could use some polishing but it gets the job done. the worst part of this receiver is the Remote! seriously at first I couldn't figure out why it wasn't working (its too easy to select a different device to control by accident) if...
Summary: This is the first time ever I bought a midrange receiver and I had no idea what to look for. After researching for almost a month, I decided to buy Denon AVR-1912. Trust me Denon really knows how to make their receivers. The sound quality is crisp.
Summary: This receiver has ALOT of everything. I use the main zone for my home entertainment system and the 2nd zone for my outdoor speaker system. The Ethernet hook-up gives me access to internet radio, Pandora, podcasts.
Summary: Where do i start: this product is amazing. I got it paired with Energy Take Five Classic Speakers and the sound coming out of it is music to my ears. So many features. I really dig airplay aven though it it disconnects every once in a while. Streaming music from my Android is fun.
Summary: Absolute worst worst worst purchase in 35+ years of buying hi-fi equipment. I'm not an idiot. I know my way around technology. But the UI for this thing is awful. The remote is awful. The documentation is terrible. the iOS app is an embarrassment.
Summary: Lots of research and reading through reviews. At the end of the day, I picked the right device. I love this receiver, paired it with energy take classic speakers and love my new system. Still learning all the bells and whistles, but everything has been great so far.
