Can't beat Denon

  • Summary: Denon has the power to provide a clear, rich, full Surround Sound platform. The sound is smooth, easy, and can rock too.

Great Receiver, but not without its Drawbacks

luvmytoys2, Amazon
4 July 2011
  • Summary: This is a great receiver, but one must be a whiz kid to get the thing hooked up correctly. Apparently, Denon is not known for its ease of use. Once hooked up right, the sound is great. WARNING: if you have an early Blu-ray player (i.e. 40gb PS3)you will not be able to play bit stream allowing the very best sound. Instead, you will have to use the linear setting to get your TRU sound and DTS, and the functional lights on the receiver (dts, TRU, etc) will not light up.

After a few weeks, still mixed feelings!

  • Summary: I am still having mixed feelings about the AVR-591. Now that I'm used to it and was able to solve its most frustrating problem (requiring reset every day, discussed below), I decided to keep it but hope to solve its remaining weakness (remote control weirdness) with a Harmony at some point.

Great Bang for the Buck

C. Jodoin "AudioPro", Amazon
16 June 2011
  • Summary: Since "7.1" turned out to be a waste of time and money.......7 channels is mostly a waste, since they don't mix 95% of movies (even the new Blue Rays) in anything but 5.1, it's all fake data and doesn't sound much better than just 5 channels. This no-frills approach from Denon is exactly what I needed for my second, smaller Home Theater system.

  • Summary: UPDATE - MARCH 25 2013 Everything keeps working fine. Still happy ORIGINAL POST 2011 I'm very happy with denon avr 591 receiver. My first receiver was a samsung, included in a kit (home theather in a box). The difference is big. Sound quality is great. I'm using jbl control 1 speakers in front and for surround. Center speaker is from the old samsung ht, and old subwoffer didn't work with this receiver. Any way, sound is already very good.

Convenient, simple, performant.

  • Summary: I am not a specialist and this is my first A/V receiver. NEvertheless, this device has what you need to have with modern equipment : 3D, 4 HDMI (1.4a which is necessary for 3D), etc. It also has a mike to automatically configure itself. It is quite easy to use and has sufficient features for normal non-professionnal use. A very good deal at this price.

  • Summary: This is my first real receiver, and I bought it because I wanted good sound and to better manage my devices.

Simple yet complicated receiver.

Mr.Christopher, Amazon
3 September 2010
  • Summary: I love playing around and experimenting with different sound settings. However, this receiver doesn't make that too easy. The manual is hard to follow, and they try to make the receiver simple for the user by having make most of the decisions for you. Setting up the speaker calibration/Audyssey EQ was very simple and works very well. It made my subwoofer a little quiet, but I just turned it up manually.
