If you are planning to use the hdmi switching capabilities STAY AWAY

Summary: Audio is superb as you would expect from Denon, but the hdmi switcher is unreliable. I have been trying tonget power on sequence to get a simple function like watch my sony Bravia tv and it is a experience in frustration every time I want to watch tv. I get hdmimsynching problem, white flashing tv. I have the latest firmware on the tv, the av1913. I have short highend hdmi cables.
Summary: This not a true Zone-2 receiver. the zone 2 is only for analog so I can play my CD player in another room but not my apple products. If this is important, and it was to me, keep moving on. Other than that the receiver does sound good, and it is easy to set up. If you plan to network this reciever you will have to use an ethernet connection since this receiver does not have WiFi capability.
Summary: Horrible network connectivity issues. Some days when you turn it on the network input to listed to internet radio it works great. Other days it will not connect to the network at all. I know the network connection is live because I can take the ethernet cable out of the receiver, plug it into by xbox and access the internet. The only help Denon tech support gives is to do a network card reset, which does nothing.
