Summary: I bought this in 2012 with the intention of setting up a 7.1 system. Currently I'm only rocking a 2.1 system, with 2 more loudspeakers coming soon, but this receiver does everything I needed it to. Easy to setup and looks lovely.
Summary: I bought this about 20 months ago, and 6 months into owning it I started getting blue rectangles on my screen when using any media -- cable, Bluray, etc. Turns out there was a production run of these with an HDMI card that goes bad. My warranty experience with Denon was great. I packaged the receiver up very carefully, but it was still damaged in shipping. Denon didn't hold me at fault and still sent out a replacement unit that has worked flawlessly since then.
Summary: I bought this AVR over a year ago. Hookup was easy and the Audyssey software did a very good job of setting up the speakers. All of my components, and TV, are connected via HDMI and I have not experienced any compatibility issues.
Summary: This is definitely a great receiver, it has a full range of inputs and supports everything without needing any switches. The receiver itself is fairly easy to use but still supports a lot of advanced options, and the ability to connect online for internet radio is definitely a plus.
head & shoulders above every other receiver I've owned

Summary: I'm a recent convert from string of Onkyo receivers. I never did any research beyond the fact that the Bose store (where I purchased my surround sound speakers) sold me my first receiver. So I'd assumed that if Bose sold it to me to go along with the speakers, it must be a sound choice. Boy was I mistaken!! Anyway, after extensive research online and asking many musician friends, I began to look at Denon. This receiver rated among the top in it's category.
Summary: This is my first real AV receiver and I couldn't have made a better choice. I upgraded from a sony home theater receiver that i had for 5yrs and after extensive research and probing with my knowledgeable best friend I chose the Denon AVR 1912. The delivery was very timely and there was no damage to the product. It was carefully wrapped and packaged by the shipper.
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: 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.
