Summary: i am completely thrilled with this receiver. it replaces a denon 1907 AVR in my family room and is the power horse through which my TV, blu-ray, gaming console and 2nd video source (outside movie projector) all run.
Summary: I had an HDMI Matrix switcher going out on me and really need to support a two room set-up. This receiver fit the bill perfectly. It switches flawlessly. Very smooth and not glitchy. Great power and sound. Best on screen set-up I have seen at this price. I would recommend it.
Pros: Multi-zone HDMI Video is awesome and the ability to power the main and zone 2 completely separately. HDMI pass through that actually works. Scored on a substantial discount as the new receivers were released.
Cons: No Bluetooth. You will need a Logitech Harmony RF remote to control zone 2 in the other room or use the Denon app.
Summary: I've owned a lot of stereos and home theater gear. Don't waste your time with the other brands, DENON is a very good product. I'm happy with the application for iPhone and how amazingly easy it is to setup. Took me under and hour to wire everything up and go through the setup.
Summary: In September of 2013 we moved into our new house with two zones/rooms of ceiling speakers (5.1 and 2.1) and subwoofers preinstalled. For 6 months I shopped, priced, and researched home-audio receivers and surround-sound systems.
