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: 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've always been a Denon fan; a great work horse system. I recently upgraded my AVR-1804 to the AVR-2309 after purchasing an HDTV from Amazon. Although I can see the point of reviews claiming a set-up which wasn't overly easy and a manual lacking in some detailed information, it really only took me...
Summary: I bought this receiver to replace an aging Sony STI-910 receiver when I upgraded the home theater system with a Sony PS3 that we use for blu ray movies and games. The first thing you'll appreciate is the automated speaker setup and synchronization system.
