Wow! Clearer and consistent movie volume dialog compared to my 5yr old Onkyo TRS605
Happy r/c, Amazon
11 March 2012
Summary: After 5yrs with my Onkyo TRS605, the HDMI output stopped working so I looked at Denon because Onkyo runs HOT and I wanted to watch movies without having to continually adjust the volume between dialog and sound affects. By the way, this is the 3rd receiver that I have owned since 2000 (2 Onkyos and now a Denon), so I thought the 139 page manual was great at describing ALL the features.
Summary: Best things 1) Sounds Great 2) Remote emulates 95% of all my other remotes. 3) The Internet radio 4) It looks great and you never have to see it. Everything is controlled on screen. 5) My wife finds it very easy to use. It's was also easy to explain to our babysitter. It as easy to use as a HTIB system. The Absolute Best You can use your Nook, Laptop, or Computer to control the receiver.
Summary: I've had this receiver for a couple months and overall am very pleased. The sound quality is great (although that's highly dependent on the speakers as well), and they've done a nice job keeping the functionality simplified. The one-touch buttons on the front of the unit and the remote are great. Pros: * If you use digital music at all I highly recommend hooking this receiver up to your home network using the ethernet jack on the back.
Summary: Pros: Sound quality of Audyssey EQ calibration Full-featured (though not perfect) Android App Highly customizable (thanks to Audyssey EQ) Respected brand with 2 year warranty Best sounding AV receiver around $500 (it is widely sold for $550 today) Cons: Interface is crap Streaming is buggy (very slow and unresponsive..
Summary: I bought this receiver after researching online. It is rated one of the best for it's category and for the price. Having owned it now for a few months, I completely agree. My only criticism is that I wish the menu was a bit user friendly, otherwise no issues at all.
Summary: Bought this as a replacement for my Onkyo HTIB system after the receiver conked out in less than two years (kept the speakers though, they're quite good for the money). Running the setup wizard made hooking everything up/calibrating the speakers a breeze. Right away I noticed a subtle improvement in the sound of my system. It's hard to quantify exactly, but I'd say the imaging of some mid to high frequencies has improved.
Summary: This is a little long, but I urge you to take the time and enjoy the journey. I have owned the Denon AVR-1912 for two months now and these are my reactions to using it on a daily basis: combined with an Energy Take Classic surround-sound system, it produces a full and nuanced spectrum of sound that represents solid value for the quality level.
Summary: I recently decided to replace my 10 year old JVC 1100W 7.1 surround sound receiver because of it's lack of HDMI functionality. I did a lot of research and read that the Denon AVR-1912 receiver was the best all-around system. I bought mine through Amazon.com Wharehouse Deals and have no regrets. The system is installed and works perfectly with no issues whatsoever. Here are my Pros and Cons for this product: PROs - Best value vs.
Summary: I bought this reciever because of the Air Play feature. I still have not got it to work without interruption, makes it useless. Everything thing else works great! Now I have to run another pooping wire. Should of got a lesser model.
Summary: Many of the reviews I read regarding the Denon receiver gave endless praise for the unit, which helped me in my decision to purchase it. I was looking forward to having a new receiver, and especially one with the AirPlay feature. Unfortunately I was extremely disappointed. I want to point out, though, that I do believe the receiver is good, but only for certain people; not including me.
