Almost 3 stars... new features and missing old ones...

Summary: The give me new stuff I like. But DENON, WHY did you take away the things I need? There is no way to interact with the device for many functions without the remote... or the new smartphone features, not sure how limited that may be for setup and configuration though. The switched AC outlet on the back is gone, WTF I need that for many things... It better come back or I will consider other options next time (sooner than you think).
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: 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: 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.
