Summary: I've owned a 2807 for some years now, and haven't been impressed by this unit. For a start, the sound quality is not up to the quality of my inexpensive, 30 year old NAD amp -- which is disappointing. But a bigger issue is with the poor audio setup. The receiver seems to have a mind of its own when it comes to processing different types of audio input. For Dolby Digital it works fine.
Summary: I have been a long time Denon component buyer with no disappointments, and this receiver delivers again. I upgraded from an old 2800 series. This receiver has feature that should be in the high end range and not the mid teir price range. I combined this with a Denon Ipod dock and my flat panel. The auto setup was simple and quick. I clarity and response is excellent as always. The HDMI input/output is very intuitive. I would recommend this to anyone!
Summary: I usualy used sony receiver,but I read a review of this unit ,I saw one and on a friend house and sound amacing. I found a new sealed on Ebay the price was right and i made and offer that was acepted. I used with a Panasonic dvd,sony multiple cd, digita satellite and a 62 inch toshiba tv. If i have to swich my receiver for other i will go with denon again ,It'S excelent no other brand get closed to this units.
Summary: Outstanding receiver, worth every penny spent. This unit was well taken care of and only offered for sale because the owner updated to a newer version. I paid a little more for this receiver based on that fact, however what and a 5* AVR from a 5* seller.
If sound quality is your priority, buy Rotel instead.

Summary: My last receiver was a Denon, and I was impressed with it, so I naturally assumed Denon would be my first choice again, given their reputation for excellent receivers. I listened to it and felt something was missing; it didn't quite sound natural. I then tried a Rotel, and the sound quality was truly astounding, the best I've ever heard. I bought the Rotel that same day, despite the fact that it has fewer features and looks a little antique.
Summary: This is not a bad unit, just difficult to operate. Audiophiles pass on, this is not for you. 20 years ago I would have loved this unit. Today I don't want to have to study owners manuals for two weeks, OK? This is a complicated piece of equipment, and if you don't want to go to school to learn how to use it, it will be the audio/video hell you've never imagined existed. I do not believe it's Denon, but any new sophisticated audio/vidio equipment.
Summary: Now hear this!! There are vast differences between these two values and how they are interpreted by a given user. No two ears hear the same, none are are equal and the music reproduction that results from a given technology is just as diverse. Long winded and often pedantic interpretations are more often nothing less than blow hard self serving subjective musings on points minutia. I highly recommend the Denon 2807 AVR, musically speaking.
