SWEET!!! A BREEZE TO SET UP, COMPARED TO EARLIER MODELS!

J Coop-Klamer "jfcoopjr", Amazon
4 March 2015
  • Summary: A breeze to set up, compared to earlier models! The integrated monitor/TV onscreen menu allows for configuration and fine tuning with ease. All my components (gaming consoles/satellite/etc) are connected HDMI with UHD and 3-D pass through.

Avoid if Interested in Airplay or Bluetooth! An Exercise in Utter Frustration!!!

18 February 2015
  • Summary: A lot of other reviews go into much further depth regarding all of the features of this A/V Receiver. As I bought mine specifically because of its Airplay and Bluetooth connectivity features, I will base my review mainly on those.

GREAT sounding receiver

JVC, Amazon
15 January 2015
  • Summary: This turned out to be a GREAT receiver. It seemed the DN1050 was a DOWNGRADE from this and even better, with the release of the DN1050, this was a hundred buck cheaper. To bad these are NOW hard to find.

It's amazing what current technology can do!

Flamingo, Amazon
24 December 2014
  • Summary: I bought this because my 3 year old receiver got fried by a power surge. Clearly, the technology has advanced quite a bit in those 3 years. This unit is great and the cost of it was pretty much equivalent to the cost of repairing the fried Yammer.

A GREAT receiver that MANY rejoice over and FEW struggle with

Michael David Allen, Amazon

  • Summary: I read about the HDMI "handshake" issues AFTER I bought this receiver. I then too experienced this problem. Then I read the manual correctly. Under the EXTREMELY WELL designed GUI is a setting to change "HDMI input selection speed". It has the settings "OFF" and "Auto".

Blackjack, Amazon
15 October 2014
  • Summary: Works well, sounds good, but the device is still very warm even when completely off. There are some auto-on features that keeps the device ready-to-go and swallows juice while it waits, so I turned off every feature so that the device could finally go to sleep and to stop producing heat (eating...

  • Summary: I was concerned over the negative reviews when I purchased this unit. It’s been over a month, and all is OK at this point. I was able to use the auto config to get the 5.1 setup in 10 min.

Won't Disappoint!

Stephen A. Brietzke, Amazon
9 October 2014
  • Summary: Very easy operation and outstanding sound quality. Most of our audio now streams via Bluetooth from iPhones and this has been well beyond expectations. Sound quality is well-balanced. I'm really happy we bought it!
