Summary: My husband doesn't claim to be an audiophile, but he does his research before purchasing an item. He did a lot of research on home theater receivers and decided on this one. It's paired with the Energy Take Classic speakers and sounds amazing.
Wow! Clearer and consistent movie volume dialog compared to my 5yr old Onkyo TRS605

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.
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...
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.
Summary: It's just awesome. The AirPlay feature is the coolest thing since sliced bread!!! HDMI CEC features are great, it integrates well with the Logitech Revue. The networking is cool, but it would be nice to have built-in wifi.
Summary: I bought this to replace my old onkyo receiver. I just bought a 3d plasma tv and so needed an updated receiver that supported the newer hdmi. This denon has multiple HDMi inputs. I like it, it sounds great, the setup is easy, and the video quality is great.
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: 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.
