It's ok but....

Anindita Bose "abose", Amazon

  • Summary: I am posting this review for people considering this receiver with a similar environment. About me: This is my first home theater so in that sense I am a 'newbie' Equipment: Samsung smart TV ES6500 + TWC Samsung DVR + Sony Bluray BDP-S5100 + Xbox360 + Polk Audio 5.1 RM6750 and Denon E300 I will not pass judgement on the quality of sound as being new, any surround experience would impress me. to be fair I am satisfied with the sound output.

I wish I would have never bought this.

  • Summary: There should be negative stars available for products like this. Amazon shipping was awesome. That is the only good thing. The setup is supposed to be easy. I guess it is if you don't mind skipping all confirmation steps. The audyssey speaker setup is ok. I kept getting "phase" errors that randomly pick a bad speaker. According to the on-screen help menu, the negative and positives are mixed between the speakers and the amp. I checked my speaker wire...no it's right.

Had issues from the factory, no option to get a replacement unit.

  • Summary: I will update this depending on the rest of my experience. However, so far, I'm very disappointed in the quality of the AVR-E300. I received this as a gift, and at first it seemed very nice. After hooking everything up and watching some movies, though, I started to notice a pop in the front left speaker. This continued to get worse until the speaker would drop out completely, or distorted audio would come from all channels.

Best investment

  • Summary: I really love this receiver, for years my buddies have all recommended Denon for my home audio. I had hesitated for a long time getting a home theater system set up, and when my company stated offering it's employees free home audio installations and discounted equipment for our pilot program as a new service we would offer (I work for a MSO company) I jumped on the opportunity.

Denon fan . . . WINNING

Kara Park, Amazon
28 June 2014
  • Summary: After owning a bookshelf Denon (model D80) from 1994 - 1997ish, nothing else has ever been good enough. i replaced my Denon wiwth a hand-me-down Onkyo 7.1 full size (51 pounds), and it sounded great/really loud, but was too big for my space, too big for me to lift without assistance, and also too complicated to use. I gave that away and looked at stereos in the $200 - $300 range (champagne taste, beer budget), mostly Denon, Sony and Onkyo. I'm so glad I waited for this.

Not a quality product

Andrew Whitlock, Amazon
18 June 2014
  • Summary: I have owned Denon products since I was in my early teens and have always found them to be quality, reliable products with great sound. However I have been very disappointed with the Denon AVR-E300 that I purchased. I found that when using an Apple TV, and trying to watch Netflix the receiver reboots every time. My first thought was faulty receiver, so I replaced it with a like model on Amazon (Great return and replacement process by the way.

Quick and Simple Set up

Rick, Amazon

  • Summary: I love the onscreen set up of this receiver. A whole lot better than my old Onkyo. Since my speakers were never labeled, the setup made it easy for me to identify which surround speaker was which so I could label them if I ever have to move the receiver. Also love the front HDMI port. Great for camcorders.

  • Summary: Easy to hook up and the sound is great. Replaced a 12 year old Sony. Hooked up HDMI cable and sound is fantastic. Set up was fairly easy with Audyssey, just took a little time.
