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

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

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.
Summary: My previous AV Receiver, a Denon AVR-1911, got taken out by a lightning strike so I'm in the market for a replacement. I tried the AVR-E400 based on specs, features and prices (not purchased here - sorry Amazon). Hooked it up and was very pleased with the features and performance once I adapted to the new, simplified remote and menu system. That was until I tried to tune my favorite AM station. Sadly, the AM tuner section is horrible.
Summary: I replace an ONKYO with the infamous HDMI issue with this unit. After having the ONKYO repaired 3 times, I didn't want to spend a whole lot on a receiver again but I found this unit to be good compromise. it has performed very well and setup is very easy (which I have gotten to know very well as I have been playing with different configurations). Issues I have had: When I first was setting it up, it had the issue where the setup screen doesn't display.
Summary: The only thing that I would say could be better, is they try to make the setup so flawless, that it's somewhat complicated. A big tip would be that if you set the speaker volumes with the microphone sensor, make sure it is dead silent. The microphone picks up EVERYTHING, and it will interfere. I would imagine it is a good thing, but made it a little more challenging than it should have been.
