Summary: The seller Worldwide Stereo ran out of AVR1913 so they sent E400 new model to me. Thanks! E400 is more than what I expected. My need is to connect audio speakers (no tv) and I didn't want the box with wires in the living room. With Denon iPhone app and E400 connected to network I can power on, off, and play songs without having E400 in line of sight and physical remote. Second E400 plays local and international radio stations off Internet.
Summary: The receiver I got works and looks like new. The only thing that was missing was the little piece that goes over the front connection ports (not a big deal to me). I would recommend. Also, this receiver has a 1 year warranty from Denon, not a 90 ...
Summary: I moved into a new house and convinced my wife to upgrade the receiver. We have two outdoor speakers, and with this receiver, we can power those without an amp, and we can watch TV inside while listening to something else outside.
Summary: The Denon AVR-1913 provides me with everything I needed in an AV receiver. Although I use only the 5.1 channel capability, the sound is excellent. The 2-zone capability allows me to play music in my basement while my wife watches videos in the family room. Love it!
Summary: This is one awesome receiver. I'd bought it to replace an older receiver and an old HDMI switcher and I'm so glad that I had. This receiver has lots of headroom for dramatic music/audio tracks on shows. The setup was a snap, while there is lots of stuff to tweak if you'd like. Also, it will remember if you had the dvd or bluray on last and keep the latest input when it turns on, instead of always reverting to the stereo when powered on.
