Very nice receiver for the price.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
7 February 2016
  • Summary: Has a few quirks, but overall works well. I have it running a 5-channel sound system with powered side channel speakers and no subwoofer. Bought this to replace an old, high-end Denon unit and don't notice any loss of fidelity.

Quality Denon product

Colorado Lefty, Amazon
19 January 2016
  • Summary: This is a quality product that is easy to use and set up. It can play music from an iphone or through bluetooth. I have had to, on occasion, reboot the system in order to get the bluetooth to work properly. Great sound and plenty of power for the basement surround.

A Bad Denon product and Un-Supported

daniel raiche, Amazon
8 January 2016
  • Summary: Well I got this to fill my need for a HDMI switcher now that everything seems to be HDMI. I used it for about 3 months having problems with the sync. I could reset it and it would work for a little while then fail. I thought it was my TV having problems with the HDMI circuit.

Nice for the price but not reliable.

tt, Amazon
2 January 2016
  • Summary: After a year and a half receiver just died, bought a second one and after a few days the video would not pass through in active mode only in passive (when unit is off) Other than obvious reliability issues it worked well for what I wanted and the price paid.

Not as good as I expected

John, Amazon
10 November 2015
  • Summary: Overall this receiver is very nice. Setup was easy and straight forward. My biggest complaint is it will play audio but I get no video when I first power it on. If I power it off and on multiple times it will eventually work. Ive tried multiple cables as well as a different hdtv in the home.

Multiple issues all in one month of owning

Andrea Ruggiero, Amazon
13 September 2015
  • 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.

Basic AVR, Works Great

Audio Rx, Amazon
23 August 2015
  • Summary: It's a very basic function AVR with minimal features. The salient feature is the BLUETOOTH. 1. You Select "Bluetooth" on either the Quick Select #4 on the front of the AVR or on the Remote control. 2.

Solid; versatile performer.

S. Fifer, Amazon
8 August 2015
  • Summary: Pretty versatile item, with decent quality and high versatility. Easy to set up -- FM receiver average in terms of signal sensitivity; will clearly need an antenna booster/extender to get consistent performance for fringy signals.
