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: 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: When my old Sony AVR died (thank you EU for ROHS, now our landfills only contain the finest lead-free if not well aged equipment), it was an opportunity to simplify the setup. I also have an HD TV, a TiVo, VCR and DVD players and a Roku internet streaming player, with a rat's nest of audio cables to the AVR and video cables going to multiple TV HDMI inputs or composite video inputs on the AVR.
Summary: Received the unit and it was delivered on Saturday although it was ordered with two day free shipping. It was packaged in two boxes. The outer box was packed with shock absorbant packing around the inner box. The inner box was in perfect shape and the unit was encapsulated in stiff, thick styrofoam material. It was installed today and the performance so far is just great. We had an HD TV but the prior receiver was not HD so we could not view the picture in HD.
Summary: I purchased this after trying the onkyo 509 model. while specs and price are almost the same this beats the onkyo in every area that matters except number of inputs but i dont need 15 different video inputs. the 4 hdmi on the denon is plenty. the hdmi signal on the denon is actually passed through with audio when its in standby. so when its off you can watch tv and have sound through your tv speakers without having to turn on the receiver.
Summary: This unit was bought to replace an old Sony AV Receiver that did not have HDMI capability. It was an excellent choice. I used the Infinity speakers I already had and the installation was quite easy. Being able to replace all the previous cables with three HDMI cables was great. While the Sony receiver that was replaced had 5.1 surround, I was never able to get the real surround that the Audyssey MultEQ dynamic room acoustic correction system with included microphone...
