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...
Summary: This receiver is much easier to use than our previous Denon AVR 1910. It provides more power and clearer sound. The setup and remote are also much more user friendly - All of the setup is done on your tv screen and it is easy to identify sound problems during the setup process.
Summary: Yes, I probably want it all. Lots of reviews here that I agree with. I did get a buggy unit (picture cutting out and very loose power cord) that I ended up bricking after a failed firmware update. Exchanged easily with Crutchfield and was ready for round 2.
Pros: Huge sound upgrade over 10-year old Yamaha, excellent picture and switching with HDMI, AirPlay works well, Pandora working now, Zone 2 control, free decent Apple Remote app for graphically choosing music on iPad or iPhone, updated Denon remote app does more and had good zone controls, easy set-up...
Cons: Had to return buggy first unit (but Crutchfield service is a pro), iPod Classic control very sluggish, No digital sources other than main zone even when Zone 2 is mirroring the main zone, no music modes that omit center speaker, loose power cord, USB only in front but don't want to clutter front ...
Summary: I've been a Denon fan for a LONG time. From my first cassette deck, to my first CD player, there has always been at least one Denon device in my home. So, when shopping for a new AV receiver for my Home Theater I didn't have to look very far.
Pros: 4K Video, Sirius XM, HD radio, iPhone control App
Summary: This receiver has three zones for separate programs. So far I have connected two of them and they work as advertised. Surround sound with my smart tv is especially good. Telephone support was excellent
Pros: Self balancing surround sound
Cons: Complex. You have to think as you enable various components.
Summary: Great receiver. The only issue that I have is with the AirPlay. I'm having to bridge my wireless connection to give the receiver a wired connection which sometimes causes issues. I know it's a bandwidth issue, but kinda sucks. I wish it were wireless.
Pros: Lots of connections (inputs) and 3 zone outputs.
Cons: Can't put all zones on for all speakers at once and isn't wireless. No dealbreakers though.
