Summary: Comments about Denon AVR-687: The Denon AVR-687 boasts a high quality sound experience and it delivers! It supports most of the current surround playback format, with lots of DSP modes and environments that even my CD player sounds awesome now. Another cool thing about it is it's Multi-zone system. This allows my kids to watch a DVD movie in the living room while I listen to stereo music in our bedroom. For the price, this is one of the best bargains I have found.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Good Power
Summary: Pros: All 7 amps sound great, Digital Dolby sounds great, Many different surround modes, HD over component and video format conversion Cons: Always have to flip over double sided remote - Not a good layout, No HDMI inputs. Summary: This is a great quality receiver for a bargain price. I am only using it for the audio inputs, so I can't speak for the video performance. It has 2 coax and 2 fiber digital inputs which work great.
Summary: Let me preface by saying the sound and capabilities of this receiver are best of the bunch for this price point. Not only are there multiple inputs and outputs for every video source, but excellent quality conversions as well. The sound definition and reproduction is fabulous as well. Read the tech specs and brag sheets from Denon for all the info...it's all true. The main criticism I have is the Owner's Manual and System Setup. I am a tech geek. I love this stuff.
Summary: I bought this on Amazon for 40% less than C City, & I feel like that I stole it. I have this hooked to Sat & DVD, it is only used for TV. The room is 30' x 23' & I have not had it over 0; it is way loud. I was a little concerned since it was rated 75w, but @ 6ohms it is rated 110w. This is my first experience with this level of equipment, so the manual was confusing & redundant; plus when you made some adjustments it automatically undid other adjustments that you had...
Summary: Took a little bit to connect all of the equipment I have, but was very simple to do. Using the speakers from a samsung htib that this replaced, with a larger gauge wire, I have noticed an immense improvement in sound quality. Depth is still a bit lacking, but this is more than likely the samsung satellites that will be replaced. Using a Harmony remote, my wife has no difficulty operating this unit.
Summary: I bought this a couple months ago to round out Home theater, and for the price, I am very impressed. As many said though, the manual is rediculous, it took many tries to get things working right, especially seeing I used the surround rear remapped to bi wire my fronts. Once it was set though, amazing results.
Summary: Don't buy it! Powere shut off and power indicator blinks red. The troubleshooter says overheat (I placed a fan over vents) or bad speaker connections at back of unit. I checked, and tried different connections over and over again.
Summary: Denon always has great sound, so I'm not going to waste time talking about that. I'm going to try to concentrate on some very minor things that I lost when upgrading from my JVC. So if you don't like nitpicking, then hurry out and buy this unit! If interested, read on to see if these little things matter to you, too. New features that I love, and why I upgraded: 3 Component video inputs.
