Denon A/V Receivers are the best surround sound receivers ever made.
2 March 2013
Summary: Denon receivers are in my opinion the best ever made. The surround sound is perfect, the set up is easy, and you cant argue with the set up mic. The 120 Watt rating is very conservative, I have yet to run out of volume. This is the second Denon I have owned. My old AVR-2800 just started acting up but still works in January 2013. That is almost 17 years of perfection.
Summary: Great receiver for the $$ these days. Lots of specs and options with a nice power plant. Read the manual very carefully and setup is easier with a tv hooked up to it. When paired up with Denon DVD player via Denon Link there is no better sound, period.
Summary: The Denon 3806 avr has awesome sound and specifications.I got an extremely good price on ebay for a very nice used receiver. My only real complaint is a very complicated manual and remote.There are some very nice features,however bringing them up takes an advanced degree in engineering. I have other Denon equipment that I am very pleased with,and once I figure all the features on this I am sure I will feel the same about this unit.
Summary: The AVR-3806 I got on-line was almost in mint condition. I had a Blu-Ray player that already decoded True Dolby HD and DTS-MA/HD. I pass the audio to the receiver via PCM and it works great! I get the full 7.1 experience. I looked at the newer AVR-3808CI, but preferred the built quality of the older Denon AVRs (I also have AVR-3802 that has worked flawlessly). And since my Blu-Ray player could do the decoding I did not need the newer receiver to do this.
Summary: Receiver is awesome! Sounds great! Looks great! Highly recommended. Only drawback is the remote is not as great as it could be... still going to have to buy a universal remote, but oh well. Receiver rocks!
