Summary: This seller is the best. Superior service and taking responsibility for UPS's shortcomings. The receiver is excellent, and I like the newer way you just plug in your iPod and it plays MP3 without the accessory needed in older models. Great buy as a refurb, tho warranty is only 1 year as opposed to 3 for new.
Summary: I have owned plenty of AVRs in the past. Yamaha,Onkyo, Harmon and now Denon. In the past year we have finished our basement. I wired three zones into the construction. (one being outside to our deck) The Denon is stationed in the basement where it commands our home theater. The first week we had the AVR set up there was a steady stream of movies being played. Time and time again the Denon brought a new life to oldies like Star Wars.
Summary: Ordered AVR 3313CI, after that received mail from Electronics Expo said that "due to an overwhelming response on this item, we will not be carrying the DENAVR3313CI any longer" and Electronics Expo also offers a complimentary upgrade to the new model the DENAVRX4000 without any additional charge. Highly appreciated.
Summary: Returned a Yamaha RX-V673 in order to buy this one instead. It was > 2Xs the price, but has the Pre-Outs for all channels. If you do not need pre-outs, I would opt for the Yamaha for the price. Denon makes a good system, but you have to pay for it.
Summary: This unit is awesome! I am using Polk Audio Satellites with a 10in subwoofer. I have heard a few people complain about the remote control but honestly I don't know what else it could do. It does everything needed unless they prefer a LCD screen remote. It is not the easiest to set up.It takes a few trial and error speaker adjustments to get that sound you may like.
Summary: I bought this AV receiver to be the centerpiece to my multi-room theater system. I am utilizing all 3 zones but have relied on external amplification for all zones with the exception zone 2. The reason for external amplification is that they are more capable at powering the speakers that I have chosen. I don't expect that many people would need to go this route, however it's great that the amplifier allows for external amplifiers through RCA pre-outs if needed.
Summary: I've had Denon equipment before (AVP 5000) and while the sound is very good it is still a bit short of perfect, the 5000 was just a hair better and more accurate. The power amp section doesn't seem to have the punch and clarity of the POA 5000 (rated at 100w / ch) even though it is supposed to have higher power amplification. The upscaling doesn't appear to make any significant difference on 480 sources (don't have a 4K tv so can't speak to that part of the upscaling).

Summary: Installed my new Denon AVR with new 65" Samsung HD TV, Samsung Blu Ray and speaker switch. COnnections were a breeze with HDMI and I now have superior surround sound and video in my Great Room and can listen to great sound in 4 other rooms in my house. Controls and setup are quite easy.
