Summary: This receiver sounded great but was very buggy and had issues processing video for my U-Verse Cable box and Roku device. I believe I bought a lemon, but while it worked great for a few weeks, after that things started to fail until it would restart itself repeatedly.
Summary: Left surround channels (yes both side and back) dead after 2nd year. Definitely not speakers or wires. I've had similar intermittent problems in the past. Sometimes turning it off and on would restore that speaker channel, but sometimes not. Processor reset helped once, but not this time.
Summary: This is a great receiver as far as hook-ups and the dual zone controls go. It works great with my Cable TV, Blu-Ray, and network radio (Internet Radio, Pandora, etc..) I have it hooked up via LAN cable to my network and I have speaker cables that run into my attic and drive two outdoor speakers...

Summary: This is a great device, but I'm not sure I would have been able to figure out how to use it on my own. I would not recommend it to someone who is technologically challenged. I use a computer every day, but I sometimes have trouble trying to figure out how to use a particular feature.
Super receiver with terrific sound, but a bit of a pain to set up

Summary: Like all Denon products, setup can be pretty darn confusing, but, like all Denon products, the sound quality is excellent. And this using has an ARC (audio return channel). If you don't know what that is, you probably wouldn't use it anyway, but essentially it means yiou can pass audio from your TV...
Summary: Great sound, confusing to set up, and died after 1.5 years. Re-set it to factory settings, and still won't play a sound, but it does re-charge my iPhone, so that's something. Ah well. Live and learn...
rest easy knowing that digital media is secured so that even ...

Summary: Wow! What junk! One year is all it lasted. For $450. What a bargain! Yippee! After a bit more than a year of irregular use, it will not pass any HD video anymore. Says it is updated to latest firmware, can't roll back, can't try again. Sorry Charlie. Hey, you can buy a new one though!
Summary: Sound: great quality, great user interface, nice features with iphone app. only negative point is the lack of a second zone - ie for outdoor speakers, or at least a sound out for a second amp..
