Summary: Sounds great...but have not had time to read the manual and set up the system with the mic. Commercials sound level is not consistent with shows/games, so I need to learn how to fix that too. Center channel on sports broadcasts seems to be too quiet too.....probably some way to fix that too.
Summary: This is an awesome receiver. I have a mix of 4 and 8 ohm speakers. I did a lot of research before I bought the Denon because most manufacturers tell you their product can't handle the low ohms. Not Denon, they said their receiver would handle it, and it did. I tried the auto setup using the mic.
Summary: The system is very difficult to set up and the remote sucks. The sound however is excellent and linked very well with my Panasonic's TV Viera Link so was able to use my Panasonic's remote to control basic Denon's receiver function
Summary: I did a lot of research before settling on the 2309. I listened to several systems and the sound quality was well worth jumping up to this level. It is also the only one in this price range that had 4 HDMI inputs.
Summary: When I first started to hook up my new 2309 I was expecting to have a difficult time to get it going based on many reviews that I read. To my surprise the hook up was easy. When I got it going I was blown away by the sound.
Summary: Hi, I had this receiver (Denon AVR-2309CI) for less than a week and a half before I returned it to 6th AVE. The sound is great and the video passed through perfectly fine as well. There was a problem though.
Summary: After weeks of researching which receiver will work best with My Samsung LNA750 and PS3 I went with the Denon AVR2309ci. I couldn't be more happy with my first receiver. Blu-Ray and video games sounds great. I Have the Onkyo SKS-HT540 7.1 speakers hooked to it and it shakes my living room up.
Summary: This is a solid, flexible receiver. I gave it only 4 stars because of the learning curve involved in setup. Trying to name/remap inputs, assign audio formats, or manage the remote has all of the usual idiosyncrasies of a Denon receiver.
Summary: I was a little nervous ordering this based on reviewes from people who had a difficult time setting this baby up. I ahd alloted two hours of setup time to intergrate into my setup, and debug, etc. I was done in a little over 1/2 and hour. And most of that time was the audyssey/mic setup.
