Solid entry-level high-end HT receiver

Amazon Customer, Amazon
19 July 2007
  • Summary: The Denon AVR-887 is a solid entry-level high-end home theater receiver. You can pay thousands for units that don't do a whole lot more or sound exceptionally better. A down side to high-end is that they are not always simple to set up and use, and the AVR-887 is no exception.

Great Receiver, Same As 2307

19 July 2007
  • Summary: I'm very happy with this receiver. The sound quality is excellent and the features are very nice. It's got everything I need and the upconversion to HDMI is a pleasure. Most of my wires and cables have disappeared.

  • Summary: Product has very nice audio/video qualities when compatibility is not a problem. I exchanged 3 receivers at the recommendation of Denon tech support. Last time I simply returned it.

Upsamples comp. video but does not send the sound through HDMI

Shiro Tokisada Amakusa, Amazon
8 June 2007
  • Summary: Why oh why does digital multimedia need to be so damned complicated? My HDTV has a built in speaker bank that I use a) when I don't want to turn on the surround sound stereo system and b) as an ad hoc center channel for my 2.1 system. The monitor part of my TV only has HDMI input.

amp leaves much to desire / Customer service nightmare

Mr. S. Grant, Amazon
16 May 2007
  • Summary: This A/V receiver arrived with a remote control that does not work. The auto set-up works OK but it thought I had large front speakers when there small, so it configure the sub-woofer too light. When playing DVDs with my new OPPO up-converting DVD player it would loose the center channel.

Save your money

Mark Conge, Amazon
6 May 2007
  • Summary: Worst interface ever. Worst manual ever. With that said, once you do have it set up and working properly, this unit is awesome. BUT, after just a few years the audio quality started to get a little weird and I could hear very slight popping noises.
