Summary: Excellent A/V Receiver. Nice features. It had everything needed for a basic 5.1 setup. I only sold it to upgrade to separate components. the sound is awesome, nice power also. Clear picture & sound quality also.
Summary: If you're looking for a relatively simple home theater setup, this entry level receiver from Denon is pretty solid. The front HDMI port was one of the bigger selling points for me. Paired it with a set of Andrew Jones Pioneer bookshelf speakers and a Polk Audio PSW10 - the sound is absolutely ridiculous.

Summary: This basic system, you have to tweak everything manually to get the best sound. I got sold on the amp output, but If you want some thing to sound great with less work look for systems that will auto configure for you. It works and gets very hot. I have required 5 inch clearance above the unit. Had to get better speakers as it will not compensate for cheap speakers.
Summary: I did brought it from a local store. But decided to make a review here for this product. The receiver sounds great and it has all the basic stuff someone would need to start with for a Home Theater. It doesn't have AirPlay, Usb, Audyssey for auto calibration, network and it missing a couple of audio features. Regardless this receiver sound great, easy setup, it does the job very well. For the price this receiver is awesome.
Summary: Pros: Easy on screen TV set up, for speaker balance. Easy cable hook up Clean looking front, uncluttered of buttons and knobs. Great sound crisp sound. Works great with my Harmon 880 Universal Remote Front HDMI and USB Port LED display on front can be dimmed to desired brightness (Blue LED) Cons: Must use TV for set up of all functions. Little difficult to set up FM Pre Sets for a Novice (I am) My overall summary; +'s out weigh the few -'s.
Summary: This unit serves the purpose for a surround sound TV, but has no capacity to handle older plug ins that don't have HDMI capability. there is only 1 optical audio input, and two RCA inputs. Otherwise does the job .
Pros: Clear Sound, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV
Summary: In the past Denon made some great products, that's why I bought this receiver. What a disappointment. I couldn't raise the volume without the unit turning off and HDMI outputs to the TV didn't work. Sometimes the volume would be at the lowest setting where I could barely hear anything and the unit would shut off. I'd turn it back on, and it would shut off again within 2 seconds. DO NOT BUY.
Summary: My old receiver just "died" ordered this and received it really quickly; after reading the reviews, I'm actually happer with the item than I thought I would be-easy to set up, and sound it great
