Summary: I went from a fairly expensive Denon receiver to this unit and the change in surround sound through the same speakers was dramatic. The setup was a bit complicated due to the process of fine tuning the speaker output algorithm with the provided microphone. Although fully setup the sound produced is amazing.
Summary: We all know that trying to extrapolate true power ratings for five or more driven channels simultaneously can be an exercise in frustration at times. 90 WPC stereo 8 ohms measures around 70 WPC according to the Home Theater Magazine review. I knew this going in, but still wish I had bought more power going in. I haven't had clipping issues to date, and it is capable of playing at SPL that I probably shouldn't, but still, there is no such thing as too much power.
Pros: REasonably. 7.1 capable. Good price (on sale). Clean sound. Audyssey works well. Intuitive menu system.
Summary: This is a fine receiver. I bought this to replace an Onkyo that started having multiple problems after 3 years of use. The Denon receiver is easy to set up and I love the "owners manual on CD" it is designed with great cross references allowing better understanding of one features effects across the entire operating system. This receiver does have a problem with artifacting. Mostly I notice this issue an animated TV programs (never see artifact issues on commercials?
Summary: Was in the market for an AVR and tried the Denon 1713, Yamaha V671, along with Pioneer 1022-K. Long story short I found the Denon 1913 to give me the best overall sound, the Audessey setup was great and a must have. Better than Yamaha's YPAO and Pioneer's MCAA. Yamaha - sound was not controlled meaning it was loud but highs and lows were all over the place. Pioneer - sound was great, but no on screen setup..couldnt believe it.
Summary: The Denon AVR-1913 is a great 7.1 channel receiver that serves as the anchor for your surround sound/home theater system. With intuitive on-screen display, it features streaming Internet services from Pandora, SiriusXM, and the like. Perhaps its most desirable feature is the built-in AirPlay compatibility. Once I plugged this receiver into the local network, I immediately got the "Denon AVR-1913" on the airplay options screen on my iPhone.
