Summary: I have had this "Denon AVR-591" unit for roughly 1 year and I have absolutely no issues with it at all!! In fact, Its incredibly easy to use, Its powerful and it's crystal clear.. It has almost unlimited connectibility to it.. I have my LG Scarlet 42" HDTV, my Verizon FIOS DVR/STB, my "LG Blue-Ray Smart Player", and I have my new Ultimate multimedia & gaming Computer all hooked up to my receiver Via HDMI connections..
Summary: I have this unit installed with two floorstanding tower speakers, two small rear speakers, a 10-inch powered sub, and a small-to-medium bookshelf center speaker. Connections: Simple, quick, and straightforward. The four HDMI input section seems a bit minimal these days, but is adequate to my current setup--HTPC computer with Blu-Ray drive, DVD/CD player, and Satellite/Cable connection. I could always insert an accessory switch if necessary.
Summary: This is the second Denon I've bought. This was for another room. Sound quality can be a subjective thing but to my ears this is an excellent unit. I do like the room tuning feature with a microphone on a long wire you configure the unit to suit the listening environment. I never realized the benefits a dedicated AVR unit can bring to the media experience until I bought one, or in this case, two.
Best bang for your buck! Has everything you need and nothing you don't.

Summary: Updated HDMI technology. Crisp powerful sound. Great with the Boston Acoustic surround setup. There is not much more to say other than Denon is quality all around and very little return rate because of it.
Summary: Though I had Geek Squad people install and set up this product, the center channel always seemed more muted, and at times would vary in volume and sound quality. Sometimes the center channel wouldnt work at all until I increased the volume dramatically and then it would kick in and I'd back off the volume. It was still under warranty at the time and I called Denon tech support, but they had people working there who had less knowledge about sound systems than I did.
Summary: This receiver delivers excellent performance, set up is easy and I was very impressed with its functionality. Audyssey processor is outstanding. It performed great for few months. Unfortunately it lasted only 6 months, HDMI processing went out, it stopped working all together. After several hours with DENON customer support on the phone, they always tried to blame the malfunctioning to my other devices (even they blamed the cables.
