So Far a Great Improvement

Bart W., Crutchfield
30 November 2014
  • Summary: I can offer a qualified endorsement of this receiver. My experience is limited; my old system was an all-in-one; my new system, of which this receiver is part, is built of dedicated components.
  • Pros: Many inputs, internet radio (requires ethernet connection, which also enables direct firmware updating), USB input, decent power for modest configurations. 5+1 and 7+1 surround support.
  • Cons: ARC HDMI connectivity requires obscure setting to enable even after cable's connected to TV and receiver.

Great Value, great receiver

BillS, Crutchfield

  • Pros: Easy online setup.
  • Cons: Nothing so far.

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.

Very capable teceiver

Jeff, Crutchfield
6 November 2014
  • Summary: It has been a long time without a receiver and so it has been fun getting this set up. It has many more capabilities than I will use anytime soon but it does everything I need and then some.
  • Pros: Very easy to set up. Remote is simple and uncluttered Good sound. I like that you can program a limit to the volume and a volume level for when it turns on.
  • Cons: I wish you could define your own shortcut buttons on the front panel. I will never have a game system so this button is wasted. I would prefer a knob rather than buttons to tune the tuner. The tuner memories is not as fluid as I would like.

Denon Audio -Video Reciever

DaveM, Crutchfield
13 October 2014
  • Summary: Overall this receiver is very good with many powerful features. The sound output just using a center channel and two side channel speakers is impressive. I use it mainly for TV, DVDs and Blue Ray Discs but do plan to try connecting FM radio and MPEG players as well.
  • Pros: Great sound plus Plenty of power and many features. The built-in sound optimization software was helpful, it detected that my speakers were wired out of phase ("Polarity was reversed"). The Crutchfield Tech Support was quite good and helped me with several set up problems.
  • Cons: I found it somewhat difficult to set up. There is no input for TV through antenna. To get the sound to play when watching TV required changing some obscure settings. I could not have done this without Tech Support. The built-in sound optimization software reported an out-of-phase error after I co...

6 October 2014

  • Pros: Looks great. Sounds great. Easy set up.
  • Cons: Runs a little warmer than I would like. I've only had it a couple of weeks. Hopefully that won't be an issue down the road. I do have it well ventilated.

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.
