  • Summary: This is a decent receiver for the price. I think it is better for home theater then for just two channel listening. For example in surround 5.1 it sounded awesome both with movies and concerts, drums sounded very "life like" and detainee and with movies the same very detailed but I found with just two channel listening to CD's it was a little thin sounding for my taste. I will be selling it soon. I prefer my old H/K as it is more warmer and fuller for music.

  • Summary: This is by far the best receiver that I have owned - (I had another that was $1200) Certainly I loved the price but here is the 2 major things. The item arrived in PRISTINE condition and the seller stayed in constant communication.

Unreliable

Allen F. Cox "AFC", Amazon
17 March 2010
  • Summary: Good sound quality, but it has been in for repairs four times. Today, I brought it in for the fourth time and another person was bringing the same model in for repairs. Unfortunately, it is out of warranty. If it is too expensive to fix, I'll cut my losses and buy another brand. The interface is very difficult.

  • Summary: works great, plenty of plug-ins, easy set up, but you get 2 hdmi ins 1 out. hdmis' work great one cable for sound and video but the denon avr588 doesn't accept sound through the hdmi cable.(it's noted in the manual) why not? i don't understand. so you go with optical or coaxial for audio. it works but extra cables.

****DO NOT BUY THIS RECEIVER****

  • Summary: Denon admits that this AVR overheats and shuts down. Mine did that frequently. I have it out in the open with air flowing from all sides. Still, it continuously shut down and now, it's DEAD.

Its a good receiver...

Benjamin D. Heller, Amazon

  • Summary: Hi Amazon users. I purchased this receiver at Circuit City in my neighborhood after substantial online research. I was looking for an inexpensive 5.1 receiver and the alternatives explored included the Yamaha 361, Yamaha 363, Onkyo 505, Onkyo 506, and Harmon Kardon 147. The receiver i had decided to buy (Onkyo 505) had been discontinued and was supposed to be on sale at Circuit City, but they did not have them in stock.

No HDMI Audio - makes no sense

deaconblues, Amazon
28 December 2009
  • Summary: Was excited , got this for a good price with the Boston Acoustics speaker system. Was very frustrated that I could not get the HDMI Audio to work on my DVD player. Bought a Blue Ray to take full advantage of the Digital experience also , even went out and bought the more expensive HDMI cables thinking it was a cable problem. Manual says right in the DVD setup area that HDMI is for both Audio and Video combined (page 11).

Decent Receiver

S. McDonald, Amazon
13 December 2009
  • Summary: This is an excellent receiver in terms of sound quality. The only problem, as everyone else has already noted is that it does not receive HDMI audio. It took me a little while to figure this out. Your only options if you want digital audio are optial or coaxial. My particular unit came paired with Boston Acoustic MCS 130 speaker setup. These two together sound exceptional.
