Summary: I have used this receiver for two years. It sounds great, performs well, and has more features than anyone will ever use. But it is so painfully difficult to use that I do not recommend it to anyone who is not willing to spend at least two semesters of hard study at Denon U.
Summary: The power that this receiver puts out is amazing. I have this pushing 2 Monitor Audio RS8, and the combination of the 2 is truly amazing! I am not a tech person but really enjoy having very nice stuff.
Denon Is Not Compatible with Sony Televisions over HDMI

Summary: I own this receiver along with a Denon 2910 DVD player. I also own two Sony televisions, a KDF-E50A10 rear projection, and a KDL52XBR4 LCD. When the Denon products are connected to the Sony televisions via HDMI, you will experience intermittent drop out of video and audio.
Summary: I have had this unit for 9 months now and really like it, but its sort of a love/hate relationship. First the love: the unit has excellent sound with my Klipsch RB-61 speaker system and has a very nice easy to use menu system.
Summary: PROS: Lots of features and inputs. Sounds great, though I do not subscribe to the idea that different brands of amplifiers sound different. I think, at the same price level, all amps sound the same, at least to human beings.
