HDMI 1.4a Includes 3D Blu-ray Compatibility

Equipped with 4 HDMI inputs, the AVR-1611 includes the latest HDMI 1.4a specification, which provides 3D pass-through (Broadcast and Blu-ray) capability, as well as providing Audio Return Channel. Standard definition video sources such as VCR and DVD are upconverted to HDMI, which allows for a single HDMI cable run to the TV, avoiding the expense and hassle of multiple cable runs.

Audio Return Channel

With Audio Return Channel (ARC), you can play back the TV audio in surround sound with a single HDMI cable. Until now, if you wanted to enjoy surround sound from a TV, you needed to use an optical digital or coaxial digital cable to bring sound from the TV to the AV receiver. The AVR-1611's ARC feature helps you keep cable connections neat and out of the way as you build your home theater.

Easy Setup With Automatic Room Acoustic Correction

Audyssey MultEQ dynamic room acoustic correction system features a microphone (included) to automatically measure the speaker configuration and provide acoustic tailoring for the best surround sound experience. Dynamic Volume helps eliminate jarring volume jumps during commercials, and Dynamic EQ provides a rich tonal balance at any volume level.

Quality Discrete Power Amplifier Section

The equal power amp design features 7 discrete power amp circuits, and each channel is rated at 75 watts (8 ohms, 20 Hz to 20 kHz, .08% THD). Featuring Denon’s Power Amp Assign function, 2 of the amp channels can be configured for surround back, or front height effects, or they can be assigned for stereo multi-room use.

On-Screen Display

With the AVR-1611's on-screen display, you can easily make settings for your home theater system while viewing menus on the TV screen. You can check the status of each setting, such as the volume level when you're adjusting the volume, or the name of the input source when switching input sources.

Dock Connectivity for iPod and Network Streaming

Network music can be enjoyed via the optional Denon Networked Control Dock.

7-Channel Equal Power

7-Channel Equal Power is a feature used in various Denon amplifiers to connect 7 speakers independently so that separate power amps connected via pre-outs are not required. It allows you to connect the second 'surround back' speaker to complement the surround back speaker for 6.1, straight off the main amplifier without adding a power amplifier to support 7.1 surround formats. Amplifiers with 7-Channel Equal Power have built-in separate internal amplifiers to power each channel independently, thus allowing you to enjoy the same high power output capability per channel, giving a balanced and truly high-impact surround-sound environment.

7-Channel Stereo

Denon's 7-Channel Stereo mode enables top quality normal two channel stereo output from the surround speakers to provide a unique 7 channel stereo option. This mode can be fully utilized from any high quality stereo source via CD, tape, FM-radio or video recorder for dynamic 7-channel output. The 7-channel stereo is available if you have a surround back right speaker connected as well as the surround back left speaker used in 6.1, otherwise you can still experience multi-channel stereo output using a 5-channel-stereo or 6-channel-stereo configuration.

After having an unfortunate incident with a lightning strike at my home, my Denon AVR-1908 suffered irreparable damage. Within a few weeks my insurance company sent the check to replace it and the hunt for a new receiver was on.

Having owned a Denon, I was very familiar with the quality and outstanding sound their receivers can produce - but made the decision to research other brands such as Onkyo, Yamaha, Pioneer and of course the new line of Denon AV receivers. I have a 7.1 surround sound Home Theater so my future purchase had to meet that criteria. After some research I had narrowed my search down to the Denon AVR-1611 and the Onkyo TX-SR508 receivers, then visited a local electronics store to compare the two receivers in functionality and sound. After comparing the two I found that the Denon delivered a more rich, deep sound reproduction with outstanding surround sound imagery as compared to the Onkyo, at least in my opinion.

The Denon AVR-1611 offers some features that I definitely wanted, and some that I may want to utilize should I decide to upgrade my Home Theater. It offers HDMI 1.4a inputs and output for 3D movie features (still on the fence with 3D), if I decide to upgrade to a 3D capable Home Theater this receiver will accommodate this option. The rear I/O panel is extremely clean compared to older AV receivers, due to HDMI. There are 4 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output eliminating the need for multiple component inputs, this made for a much quicker and cleaner equipment setup. The various available sound formats, i.e., DTS Master, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus encoded with this receiver switch very efficiently with the source material - to date I have not had to adjust this manually.

I wanted a receiver that I could rely on for the next decade. After reading reviews of occasional failures of receivers (Onkyo, Sony, et cetera) that otherwise perform well, I bought this Denon receiver. Note that I could not find a review that mentioned a failure of a Denon product.

This receiver sounds great, and works seamlessly with my TV and Blu-Ray player. I love its CEC functionality - when I'm done watching a Blu-Ray through the Denon receiver, I merely power down the TV, and the Denon receiver shuts off. CEC does this without having to configure any universal remote controls.

The automated Audyssey speaker calibration and setup worked like a charm. I'm using an powered subwoofer, for which Denon wisely provides detailed instructions on how to adjust its controls (volume level, crossover) prior to Audyssey setup. Denon really thinks things through - nice!

Have not tried the Secondary Speaker zone function yet; I will post my findings in a follow-up review.

This thing has 7 independent amplifiers for each of its speaker outputs: Rated 75 watts @ 0.08 % THD (total harmonic distortion) across the 20 - 20Khz frequency spectrum. At first glance, this power output might seem a bit low, but note that many manufacturers rate their products at 1.00 % THD at 1Khz - a poor indicator of true performance.

I'm thinking that my minimal extra investment in a Denon product will pay for itself many times over on the long run as well as in immediate satisfaction. I'd rather pay 10% more for a Denon to get superior performance now, as well as to avoid the possibility of having to shell out another $400 in three years to replace an inferior product from another brand. It's sort of like paying a small amount for a lifetime performance and quality warranty.

When I switched from my old Harman Kardon AVR235 (no HDMI) to the Denon AVR1611, I actually was a little disappointed at first, because it felt like the audio lacked some "oomph," kind of like I lost some of the low frequency (bass) sound. But it turns out that's actually what the Audyssey Multi EQ settings intended on doing after I read about it's features (and turned up the sub woofer about 4 db via the on-screen menu after mic set-up was completed, for my personal taste).

With the Denon receiver, however, the sound was more crisp and clear than the older Harman Kardon, perhaps well-defined is a better explanation. It was so much easier to understand voices at all volume levels during tv & movies, to decipher what corner of the room each instrument was playing from during music playback, but as a trade-off, just some raw power to the system was lost between the receiver switch. Yes, the old HK was more powerful, but the new Denon is so accurate and precise that I didn't have to blast the sound anymore because audio sounds good at all volume ranges. I'm also not saying that Denon is better than HK in general. This comparison involves an outdated model vs a new one with HDMI included.

The best feature of the Denon is the "Audyssey MultEQ dynamic room acoustic correction system" (yea, big name). Basically it comes with a microphone which you place in 6 different areas of your listening room, then the receiver samples sound over the entire frequency range, then adjusts each individual speaker's overall volume & various sound frequency volumes to optimize the acoustics specifically to your room and also compensates any slight differences between all of your speakers.
