Denon makes quality stuff.

skibumpa, Ebay
30 October 2013
  • 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.

Denon AVR 2309C1

billybuiltit, Ebay
13 August 2009
  • 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. It did not do the job for me. Once I set it up using manual set up it sounded the great.

Excellent upper/middle line receiver

  • 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. I would definately suggest getting a side by side comparison before purchasing this system. Doing that made me confident in my purchase of the 2309.

Great choice after much research

Master of None, J&R

  • Summary: After weeks of research for the HDTV, I spent another several weeks reviewing receivers. The Samsung was a great choice for a TV and the Denon receiver seems like the best of the bunch - given that there is no clear choice in receivers like I feel there is in HDTVs. It really amounted to picking the one with the best features and the fewest weaknesses, and the Denon came out on top.
  • Pros: Clean Sound, Durable, Good Power
  • Cons: Poor documentation

It was better than I thought.

  • Summary: Denon AVR-2309CI 7.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver Denon AVR-2809CI 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. I hooked up my Panasonic BD30 blu ray player and played Dark Knight Returns, the sound and video was top notch.

Solid Receiver, Good Value

JimmyRay, J&R
11 February 2009
  • Summary: Bought this receiver at J&R. [...] Replaced Onkyo 703 that didn't have 1080p HDMI pass-through and ran very hot (wanted to take advantage of Dolby True HD and DTS Master Audio via HDMI, plus 4 HDMI inputs). The Audyssey speaker calibration system is outstanding. If done correctly, produces exceptionally clean, balanced sound. Very good power and runs relatively cool.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Clean Video, Good Power, Great Speaker Calibration
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Poor Manual, Poor Remote

Not hard to setup, great receiver

Rick Lyon, Amazon
9 December 2008
  • 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. Otherwise, I'm amazed how easy it was to set up. If you connect your HDMI devices into the suggested ports, the Denon will see them and there is aboslutely nothing to configure.
