denon 2809ci - Most disappointing purchase of 2009
29 January 2010
Summary: A wonderful sounding amplifier with a Blu-Ray movie when using HDMI input, IF you are willing to do a complete, 100% manual setup. I believe the unit mis-reads Doldy True HD and DTS HD Master audio inputs. Low frequency audio EQ is way off, and to some degree, the dynamic range is too wide, in my opinion. I use different EQ setups for Blu-Ray, regular DVD, HDTV, etc. For some reason, audio CD's don't seem to require any adjustment. Video. Here's the big disappointment.
