Summary: The only downside I see is that sometimes I have to turn the receiver off and then back on as it's not picking up the signal on my TV. It takes a couple times sometimes to get it picking up the video signal. If you leave it on after you watch something then you don't have to worry about it.
Summary: Bought this recertified receiver in August 2015 and worked fine for the first two or three times. Then I noticed when I played a DVD that the video was cutting in and out. Didn't think anything of it, just shut everything on and off and then it worked fine.

Summary: Please do your research before purchasing this receiver. I had nothing but problems with the HDMI pass-through and HDMI outputs from the very beginning. The picture from my cable box, blue-ray player and my ROKU cut in and out every few seconds due to an HDMI "handshake" problem.
Summary: Although the sound was clearer than an older Denon receiver that is a four year older version with audessey, there are very loud variations of volume levels of gun fire, doors slamming etc.. I decided that the clarity of sound outweighed the volume outburst problem.
Excellent "starter", apartment, or personal room system.

Summary: This is an excellent "starter" system. I use mine for my HDTV, Blu-Ray player, and HDMI-output-equipped computer. The speaker system I use with it is the Yamaha NS-SP1800BL 5.1-Channel Home Theater Speaker System, please see my review of those.
Summary: I purchased an AVR-S500BT from my local stereo retailer after extensive research. My main reason for purchasing this unit was for the bluetooth. It failed miserably. The bluetooth lasted only 3 months on the first unit.
Easy setup and a rich feature set make this AVR a no-brainer

Summary: I'm using my Denon AVR to route sound from my PC to a pair of bookshelf speakers and it is simply lovely for that job. It has a lot of bells and whistles that I probably will never use with my setup, such as a large array of HDMI passthroughs, that make it perfect as the hub for a large home theater...
