Denon AVR-E400 review: A somewhat simpler AV receiver at a cost

CNET
24 July 2013
  • Summary: Denon's AVR-E400 embodies some progress in simplifying the arduous AV receiver setup process, but it lacks convenient wireless features you'd expect at this price.
  • Cons: There's no Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, which both offer a lot of convenience and are available on the less expensive Onkyo TX-NR626. The step-down AVR-E300 is also a better value for most buyers and includes all the new ease-of-use features. And the AVR-E400's bulky design is hard to overlook when Marantz's NR1403 is nearly half the size.

Denon AVR-E400 review: A somewhat simpler AV receiver at a cost

CNET
15 April 2013
  • Summary: Denon's AVR-E400 embodies some progress in simplifying the arduous AV receiver setup process, but it lacks convenient wireless features you'd expect at this price.
  • Pros: The Denon AVR-E400 shows some real strides in making AV receivers easier to use, with an onscreen Setup Assistant, push-in speaker connectors, and a simpler remote. Its six HDMI inputs should be enough for nearly all home theaters, plus it has a respectable suite of streaming-audio services, including AirPlay, DLNA, Pandora, Spotify, and Internet radio. The AVR-E400 also offers the same solid sound quality we've come to expect from Denon.
  • Cons: There's no Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, which both offer a lot of convenience and are available on the less expensive Onkyo TX-NR626. The step-down AVR-E300 is also a better value for most buyers and includes all the new ease-of-use features.
