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.
Summary: One of the top of the basic line of Denon, or the first of the top line of Denon, is the same that the AVR-2307 electronics, only are diferent the front face, the strongest thing of this models are the HDMI support, Neural Surround system & that are XM ready, it have 5 digital inputs, 3 opt & 2...
Summary: This is one awesome receiver. One major thing first, DO NOT PLUG THE RECEIVER IN until you have all of the connections already connected. It took me 1hr 45min to get all hooked up because all of my equipment was working except for my 360.
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.
Summary: my old reciever Sony STR-DE875 sounded great to me. i bought it for 350 at circuit city in um 2003 i think. i never turned it off and last year the right channel got a lot weaker than the left. i lived with it for a year and last week i started hearing crackling when playing cds at full volume.
Summary: Working with DENON products like usual with setup was great, the problem was the HDMI connection are very picky and if a flea so much as farts you can loose contact between the cable connector and receiver jack.
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.
amp leaves much to desire / Customer service nightmare

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.
