Summary: I bought this AVR to replace a Sony ES555. The setup was a breeze and it was up and running in less than 30 minutes. I'm running Definitive Front towers with dual 15" powered subs, Center and Rear surrounds. The power output rocks the Definitives and has great sound equalization after tuning with the Audyssey system. Definitely would recommend this unit!
Summary: Excellent receiver and value for the price. Wish there were more pre-set sounds like in Yamaha line of receivers. Bit tricky with audyssey moving the calibration unit to different spots which are very close in a mid-sized room. But it works and delivers!
Summary: I have had the Denon AVR 1604 for the past 9 years . Still works great . Clean dolby digital . I have patiently waited for Denon to go through their growing pains with the HDMI technological advances . The AVR X 3000 is the perfect replacement for my predecessor . I considered the X2000 but the options on the back are limited. The new in command X3000 is perfect for my needs , as well as for the future .
Summary: The red blinking light shut downs that go with this system are annoying. But, a hard reset seems to help. I would do my research because many people are having problems with the new AVR models. Just do your homework.
Summary: I purchased this receiver to replace a Denon AVR-3803 which I have had for around 12 years. The old receiver had just about run out of inputs and with the advent of HDMI in the interim and the purchase of a newer TV it became obvious that I needed to upgrade the heart of my system. Since I really liked the performance of my old receiver when I went shopping Denon was of course on my shopping list.
Summary: This device gives the appearance of being very simple or even 'dumb', nothing could be further from the truth! It is a rather brilliant and well thought out device, my only second thought is I wish I'd bought the big brother as you can always crank the sound level down on a big amp but a little one is breathing hard on high dynamic range material.
Summary: When I read the specs I was a little intimidated. I wasn't 100% sure I was ready to tackle a big AV project. So when it arrived I cautiously unpacked it (it's reassuringly heavy) and pulled out the Quick Start Guide. Okay here it is in a nutshell: 1. Put it near your TV 2. Hook up an HDMI cable from the X3000 to your TV and set the right HDMI input. 3. Turn them both on. 4. Watch the On Screen Setup Assistant appear on your TV. Do what it says.

Summary: Close to a year ago, I purchased an Onkyo HT-S9400THX 7.1-channel network A/V receiver and speaker package. I've been happy with this complete home theater audio system and see no need to upgrade or change out components. Since the Denon AVR-X3000 In-Command 7.2-Channel 4K Ultra HD Networking Home Theater Receiver with AirPlay was available to me, I decided to see which I would prefer.

Summary: Can you ssaaaaaaay surround sound! If your anything like me, you've had several surround systems the good, bad and the ugly. I've also had the pleasure of see/hearing excellent high-end systems as well. When given the chance to review this receiver I jumped at the chance. The AVR-X3000 is a pretty advanced home theater receiver but the front design doesn't really show that.
