Summary: I decided to upgrade to a newer network component. Replaced an older Harmon Kardon bi amped with a Yamaha receiver. There is plenty of power to drive my polk rti a7 fronts. I am very happy with all the network capabilities. I can now use the Harmon to power zone 2.
Pros: network, power, ease of use, flexibility, sleek look,
Summary: Great product all the way from the display to the power it puts out! Bought this baby for our soon to be finished newly remodeled master suite to rock the privacy deck and the suite when getting ready or laying low reading a book.
Pros: Was set at an amazing price......I was a little nervous when calling for the price but was sold by the knowledge of customer service.
Summary: Disclaimer: I love Denon products.
I am in the habit of buying models about to be closed out. This unit was discounted 50%.
Plenty of power, attractively fashioned, heavy in the right sort of way, abundant HDMI inputs for my basic system, intuitive controls (more so than previous Denon pieces I have...
Summary: I acquired this receiver to upgrade my home theatre. I'm not disappointed. Great sound. Now that I've got it calibrated I can't stop listening to great sounding movie intros ... Like Top Gun!
I set mine up to watch my Apple TV, TiVo, and play party music throughout the house.
Pros: AirPlay is great.
Wonderful Dolby digital for movies.
Plenty of power.
Love the ability to control audio volume in zone b separately
Summary: I tried an NAD T-758, and I just wasn't able to get proficient with setting it up and using it. I had printed the manual before I bought it, and even read a good bit of it. The Denon was very handily substituted in for me by Crutchfield, and it has a much shallower learning curve.
Pros: Nice sound, works well with Harmony remote, and android app. Crutchfield evaluation window.
Cons: It does get a bit warm for my taste, but I try not to dwell on that. I am not shaking the walls with it, either.
Summary: Happy so far with this receiver which replaces a 3 year-old model. Our system is complicated so we had an AV tech hook it up for us and it works perfectly.
Pros: Have used Denons for years and found them to be very versatile once our Harmony remote is programmed with the macros needed to run and switch between our various inputs.
Cons: The last model we owned (different model, now retired) did not last very long! (This was in contrast to our first model which lasted over 12 years and even had old-fashioned tubes in it!) We are hoping improvements have been made to the X3000.
Summary: Love it. Installation was simple. Setup was even easier. IPhone control is the reason I bought it. Works great. Crutchfield was awesome. The tech rep answered all my questions and ensured me it would work in my application (5.1 in one room with the surrounds in another room for all channel stereo,...
