Summary: One of the main reasons for buying this system was for the IPod interface, which generally got quite positive reviews. However, when I hooked up my new 80GB IPod (40% full), I found the scrolling speed impossibly slow! Not just bothersome slow, but UNUSABLE slow. So, if you plan on using this with the Ipod interface, and have visions of scrolling though a long list of artists while watching the Ipod display on your TV, beware.
Summary: My wife and I very much enjoy the sound this unit produces. Unfortunately the unit I received has the same problem experienced in other reviews. The video signal is lost momentarily and then returns. Very annoying! Also the 'HELP' function on the remote that initiates the on screen set up display, stopped functioning. Could not scroll up and down through the menus. Sending the unit back to Amazon. I have ordered the Sony DAV-X1.
Summary: I bought this new in January 2006 along with a new video ipod. Although the included cable worked fine, the advertised ipod/remote compatibility with this Denon ended there. In fairness to Denon; however, the Denon supplied remote would control the ipod using the compartmentalized buttons located on the back of the remote rather than the front buttons as outlined in the manual. This method of function is clumsy and fails to control the ipod correctly.
