Summary: I don't think I will feel the need to upgrade for several years now with this reciever. I got it used off craigslist for $125. It is basically in mint condition, looks like the guy I bought it from took good care of it.
Summary: SO far this receiver has panned out great, it was easy to install, easy to program got it up and working with in minutes. The Mic is an excellent feature to help set up the sound in a room. Set this receiver up with a Sony F6000 system and for my 15 X 15 room, it is more sound than needed.
Awesome AVR, but make sure to upgrade to the newer 591 first!

Summary: Received my Denon receiver from Firemall, via Amazon in extremely timely fashion. I was extremely happy with customer service I received at "Firemall LLC". One cautionary note however. If you are tempted to buy the Denon AVR 590 take a look at the newer model Denon AVR 591.
Summary: I switched AV components after a recent purchase of a new plasma. I wanted everything integrated through HDMI. With this Denon receiver I was able to achieve this with ease. Nice features, easy to set up, excellent sound quality.
Summary: After spending weeks of researching A/V receivers, I chose the AVR-590 to replace my old, non-HDMI Sony receiver. I had a 5.1 setup and didn't need anything fancy, but I didn't want something mediocre either.
Summary: I was always into home theatre systems from Teac to Kenwood to Sony but i have never come across anything as awesome as this AVR system. I'm sure that there are better ones out there but when you consider the price vs the features on this system then there is no comparison.
Summary: Getting a product of this quality at this price is not a common thing in my opinion. You will be very pleased with this receiver. For beginner home theater enthusiasts, this is THE receiver to get. Own this for a few years and I could see owners moving on to receivers going for thousands.
Summary: We replaced our 12-year-old Yamaha receiver with this and hooked it up to our DirecTV deck, new Sony Blu-Ray player, and 15-year-old Bose Acoustimass speaker/subwoofer system and--wow!--what an astounding improvement! Our old Yamaha never gave us the amazing output this Denon does!
