Rock Solid Performance, Modest Cost and Great Value!
29 February 2012
Summary: The only reason I gave it a four star rating and not a five star rating is I am not liking the remote as much as my AVR3801. Call it familiarity maybe. I bought this for my sister's soon to be completed home theater. It sounds really nice and clean just like my 3801. It has a few more gadgets and such which is a good thing. I am certain that they will be completely satisfied with this little jewel.
Summary: Great receiver with loads of options. Only thing missing is HDMI switching. HD picture via component cables just as clear as HDMI. Only difference is you have to run a separate cable for digital sound. It comes with 5 optical and 2 coaxial inputs so no worries. Good programmable remote and easy on screen set up. This receiver really brings it and large display is also a bonus. I highly recommend this receiver. Only Bummer does not come with auto set up mic.
Summary: if you want a great sounding receiver and don`t need HDMI this would be an excellant choice. just a few years ago this was considered one of the best ones for the money around-buying on ebay now at these prices makes it a steal!
Summary: I just purchased this receiver and found it to be quite wonderful. The Dolby Digital and DTS surround for DVD's is terrific. It's handling of CD's is very, very good too. I found it easy to set up and the auto set up of the speakers is very easy to do. My only complaint is that the remote is a little bit confusing when you first start using it, but once you get used to it's layout and which buttons handle what feature, then it's a breeze to operate.
Summary: I previously owned a Yamaha DSP-1000 sound processor that had more power, sounded as good or better than the Denon, and had a much better remote and manual. I would not recommend it for the above reasons.
Summary: Price Paid: $354.00, used, from eBay on 10/03/2006 I'm writing this review because I'm disappointed by the poor reviews from the other Amazon folks that this great receiver does not deserve. Summary: This receiver was released 06/01/2004 with an original retail price of $899, & its professional reviews were glowing. I had researched many different non-HDMI receivers at the time and also liked the Yamahas.
Summary: Da ich mir vor kurzen Quadral-Boxen (Vulkan) zugelegt habe, wurde mein bisher vorhandener Reseiver auch von Denon etwas zu klein. Mit Kauf dieses Reseivers haben die Boxen erst ihre volle Leistung entfalten könne. Ein Gerät der Spitzenklasse zeigt bei dieser Kombination was es leisten kann. Die Einstellungsmöglichkeiten lassen keine Wünsche offen und ich bereue der Kauf nicht einen Tag.
