Very good unit with lots of features amazing sound

C. Molina, Amazon
27 January 2015
  • Summary: So far the stereo has performed well, it has lots of features that my previous sony did not have. The only issue I have its the hdmi connections are not tight and the cables need to be of very good quality or the monitor does not recognize the signal. Also have to leave enough ventilation or if the unit gets hot it turns off by itself, have it inside a cabinet with no doors and added a fan and it works better.

Not as expected

David Wallas, Amazon
11 January 2015
  • Summary: Nice receiver, good sound and lots of options. I bought it to use primarily for streaming music from my bluetooth phone/tablet and wifi. To get this to work, you need to hardware it to your computer via an Ethernet cable. Not what I wanted. It was listed as wifi and Bluetooth but not unless hooked up to your computer. Our stereo system is upstairs and wanted to keep from running up and down the stairs to adjust volume and sources. This item didn't fit my needs.

Discontinued for a reason!

jlasalan, Amazon

  • Summary: This bad boy had to be returned. There was lots to like: easy to set up, plenty of inputs including optical and analog audio inputs as well as hdmi. The superimposed info for adjusting sound parameters are good sized and clear and the adjustments a knob twisting dream. After Audessey had it's way with my speakers, I wasn't exactly pleased with the sound although the theater sound was pretty impressive. It was a matter of the adjusted eq that I didn't really like.

I love Denon products and have been using them for years

J. M. Drake "Mikey D.", Amazon
9 November 2014
  • Summary: I love Denon products and have been using them for years. The one major issue I have with this unit is if you are listening to something like internet music and then use a universal remote to watch (change it to) something on the television - the image will not appear. If you select cable guide, the show contents appear as they should, but the actual show or channel will not appear on the screen. Even after turning off the unit and turning back on.

First of all great service from Amazon and the vendor

J-Rod, Amazon
19 October 2014
  • Summary: First of all great service from Amazon and the vendor. Receiver was easy to hook up and calibrate.sound is absolutely incredible no lie. no need for Wi-Fi because it plays music through my AppleTV easy breezy. Major part that I didn't realize was that now the receiver handles all the input switching.this makes switching from one device to another incredibly fast and simple. I would recommend this to anyone in the market for a new receiver.

If you hook it up as a 5.1 Setup!

maw, Amazon
30 September 2014
  • Summary: The automatic setup is easy. The only difficulty is that, if you hook it up 5.1, you have to attach the rear speakers to the surround outputs instead of to the rear speaker outputs. The Internet radio feature is fantastic!. It works well with the android app so that you can play with the internet station feature without turning on the tv set.

Be aware of the OVERHEATING problem

Haokun Zhu, Amazon
23 September 2014
  • Summary: Good value for the features but with one problem: OVERHEATING regularly This is a 7.1 AV Receiver with all the major functions, great buy. Only problem I encounter is the over heating. I put the av receiver in a shelf in the corner of home theater without much air circulation. and the shelf is about 12" in height with glass. After 10 mins of use - watch movie / testing sound, the av receiver shut off automatically and the red light is blinking.

Really a great addition and replacement for my Yamaha for home theatre

Ron, Amazon
22 September 2014
  • Summary: Really a great addition and replacement for my Yamaha for home theatre. The OSD for speaker setup and calibration of surround sound was so easy my wife could have completed it. I use the second zone for the speakers on my back patio with plenty of amp. The app for the Andrioid and iPhone really make it complete for a remote control on the wifi. The only problem I keep having is that when using Pandora it will just suddenly stop playing.

Don't use SiriusXM app, unless you want to be totally frustrated.

Bob Donnelly, Amazon
17 September 2014
  • Summary: As a receiver, I love this device. The sound is great, easy enough to setup and picture quality doesn't seem compromised. However... I hate the SiriusXM app. It's awful. I can't tell you how many times I've been listening and all of a sudden the thing starts changing channels on me. I've also received "Disconnected" messages so many times, I cant keep up with it. Contacted support and no help at all.

Super sleek and advanced receiver with many cool features.

justoso, Ebay
17 September 2014
  • Summary: Super sleek and advanced receiver with many cool features. Menu is intuitive and setup is easy. Once the unit is connected to your network you can take advantage of its full potential. I did not opt to use the HDMI switching capabilities (only the pass through) because I prefer to have more independent control over my components. For the price this unit proves to be a good option for A/V control.
