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.) Everything goes in via HDMI and then one HDMI connection feeds the TV. It's nice to be able to switch sources on the receiver and have it switch the audio and video sources at the same time.
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. Also the option use my audiophile quad electrostate loudspeaker on the second stereo channel is excellent. For movie watching I invested in B&W loudspeakers.
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. -Still can't get my zone 2 speakers to play a different channel than the main, which this unit claims to do -Remote and manual are terribly clunky.
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 you have an android phone you can use the AVR-Remote app to control the receiver. Also you can control it by pointing your web browser on your pc to it's assigned IP.
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. I have hooked up my Paradigm Atom monitors front and back speakers to complete the setup. Its astounding! Got so many compliments on the sound output.
Summary: I have been unable to used my refurbished Denon. I have called Denon customer service and after troubleshooting, they determined my machine is defective. I was given a reference number. I am in process of returning, but am having trouble getting instructions for returning my defective product.
Summary: Is a excellent receiver, have a nice sound for music and is hard potency. Perfect to home theater because is 3D and I combine this with some speakers klipch. I am very pleased with this purchase and recommend it.
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. It also has a nice FM/AM tuner system that has picked up every local station (in stereo) I listen to. This receiver also has AirPlay, which allows me to find my receiver on my network and pump my iTunes music through it.
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. I installed some speakers in my balcony last weekend and got a hold of Zone 2, works like a charm. The internet radio is cool to.
