Summary: The Denon AVR 4806 is an excellent receiver and it has many additional functions that make it a very versatile product. I am particularly pleased with the quality and sound that the unit exhibits. We have put the unit to the test and it has performed flawlessly.
Summary: waiting for the set-up mic to calibrate the unit,but justbuy manually settting it up the sound is superb,still reading manual with all the options to dial it in,increadable sound with 13 speakers in my front room
Summary: The original 4806, which I bought in 2005, could not switch 1080p, but was limited to 1080i. This is a limitation today for playing blu-ray disks. There is a $500 mod that I had performed this year that added 1080p switching and net radio. However, it does not reproduce Dolby trueHD.
Summary: I own a 3803 receiver. I also own a nice Samsung DLP and Toshiba HD-A2 HD DVD player and a Denon 2900 DVD player. In my view, there is absolutely no reason whatsoever to upgrade to a receiver that only upgrades video via HDMI when there is no audio upconversion to "True HD" sound that is all over...
Summary: I started out looking at $500 A/V receivers, and gradually worked my way up to the Denon AVR-4806. Sometimes I think I must have been crazy, but more often I glad I bought this unit. What do you get for 3 grand? Needless to say, you get great sound, but you get a lot more.
If You Wanted the AVR-5805 But Were Too Scared, This is the Receiver for You
