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.
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!.
If It Were Really 185 Watts, You'd Be Paying a Whole Lot More

Summary: 90 watts of continuous power. 185 watts is the peak power or dynamic headroom that comes into play when watching action films. You can verify the info on Denon wbsite. Type in the model number, look at the owner's manual, You'll have to scroll way down to specifications.
Awesome receiver. Have not had any problems so far.

Summary: Ok, after trying several receivers this one is excellent. First a bit of background of my setup for those curious. Receiver in the basement, speaker wire running upstairs to main floor as well as outside speakers.
Summary: I purchased this to replace an Onkyo that died. It has a ton of nice features, including Audyssey MultiEQ, which is superior to other 'auto setup' brands due to its subwoofer handling. Power is obviously not exactly as stated (NONE of them are!
Summary: I am running this receiver in a 7.1 home theater setup and it does all the decoding and amplification that I need. It replaced a high end AVR-4806CI model for comparison. It does up-scaling to 4K video to my Sharp TV and looks great.
