Started out bad but ended up with great service from Amazon and Denon and am in love with new E300.

Summary: I ordered this unit in latter Monday evening and received it on Wednesday about Noon. Great shipping. But it was an opened box and the remote was missing and no paperwork. I notified Amazon by email and they got right back to me and told me to send it back to them and they sent me another one. It took a couple days longer this time because it was now the weekend. But UPS showed up the next day and sent it back to Amazon prepaid.

Summary: If you have a receiver that is over two years old you will be pleasantly surprised at the upgrade in sound quality with this Denon unit. I have a few year old Onkyo that I have had a hate hate relationship with and was glad to see it go. While the Onkyo had more wattage power, the sound separation and detail was just not there.
Summary: Terrific product. Terrific tech support. Easy to setup. Great sound. The eSeries line of AVR from Denon are outstanding. I have used the e300 and e400 without issue. Their interface on the Pandora and FM tunner could use some sexy upgrade but it works and works great.
Summary: Purchased this receiver for a multimedia room at work. I needed something that would feed a sub-woofer and limit the low frequencies in the satellite speakers. It does everything we need and more. I plan to purchase one for my home theater system, soon. I read that there are much better systems that are more costly, but for less than $400.00 this is a remarkable receiver. Download the manual and see how much this unit can do.
Summary: Impressive system. I am not sure about the 175 watts but I will never know. I have Energy Take 5.1 and they are rated for 100 watts. I have used Internet radio and can listen to American Rock and Roll from Paris. I have hooked up my laptop to it and watched Hulu. I have been watching Leverage and the bass can get loud. On TV I can barely notice the bass. With movies it sounds great!
Summary: Denon used to make great amps, very adjustable, they have really dumbed them down and I found that this new system offered very little adjustment for my needs. Very good for a non-technical user.
Summary: Let me just start by saying I am not an expert on audio systems. In fact,the last time I purchased a receiver was in the 90's. Overall, I like the Denon E-300. This receiver does not have the problems others have such as shutting down from extended use. On the first night and after setting up, which was quite easy I left it play all night long. I noticed that it did not overheat. There is no humming that I can notice while listening to music or while watching movies.
