Summary: Great unit! It get a little hot under load and I added a cooling (200mm case fan) fan and that took care of that problem. The setup features worked and created an almost seamless surround sound.
Summary: Love my new Denon E-400, did a ton of research b4 purchasing. Had everything I was looking for at a great price with awesome power!.......too bad is no longer available, got replaced with the AVR-900.....not even close, more like a down grade!
Summary: We use this reciever almost every day with no problems. I like this reciever better than I thought I would. This unit has no switched outputs which would have been nice.
Pros: Love the setup features. I have all Def. tech speakers and the deneon matched their levels so nicely. The subwoofer takes a little playing with to get right level (its a placement issue but I can't get around that right now). My wife didn't like me spending money on more stereo equipment but this...
Cons: Gets hot! Have a 200mm case cooling fan keep it cool while running. Update from the internet can take about 20 minutes.
Summary: A good solid receiver. New speaker terminals work well. This is my first receiver made by Denon and I must say it exceeds all my expectations
Pros: I bought this as a replacement for my old Panasonic receiver and I am very happy with the product I purchased. It is easy to set up and has all the upgrades you can use. Easy hookup and not complicated. Sound quality is great and it looks sharp.
Summary: After suffering through the Onkyo HDMI blues, I went to Denon and am very happy. The vol. needs to be way up compared to my other system but is room filling and all I need to enjoy surround sound movies at home. The zone 2 was very important to me so I can run sound to the other rooms and decks.
In the end this super cheap super capable receiver powers a great surround system ...

Summary: I spent almost a year testing and analyzing models from this range all the way up to $1000. In the end this super cheap super capable receiver powers a great surround system as well as two zones (with a switcher).
One of the best bang for the buck in low cost audio receivers

Summary: One of the best bang for the buck in low cost audio receivers. The quality you have come to expect from Denon, and very easy to use. This is ideal for folks with all HDMI, and little to no composite connectivity needs.
