Top Customer Reviews
So far, I am similarly pleased with this new unit. The HDMI pass-through is crystal clear. It's nice to finally have an on-screen display when changing receiver settings. I am also very pleased with the newer, higher-definition audio settings for blu-ray disks. One of the first things I listened to with the new unit was Steve Wilson's "Grace for Drowning" on blu-ray. In a word -- sublime.
The audessy set up worked reasonably well, but I found myself making some tweaks afterword (hey - what fun would it be without tweaking?).
I was initially worried about whether 75 watts/channel would be enough power in my great room, but it's fine. With reasonably efficient speakers and a powered subwoofer, it'll play loud enough to send your significant other scurrying from the room.
At a price point of $300, it's hard to imagine a better value in an A/V receiver.
I've got mine hooked up to the Energy Take Classic 5.1 Surround setup, and it sounds great after using the Audyssey MultEQ auto setup to balance the speakers out.
I gave it 4 stars because I had a problem with the video dropping out on the first unit I bought. It worked 99% of the time, but I returned it anyway for fear that the problem would worsen over time. The new unit seems to be working fine and I also purchased a 2 year warranty just in case.
I'll update this review once I have time to test out the other features.
I got this for just over $300 at BB, while it was on sale. I looked at many other receivers and even two individuals working there had this receiver. That tells me that they believe it is a great product. This item for the price will not disssapoint and has everything a person should need. If you need more functions and feature and capability with clarity, then you need to spend more. You are not going to get anything better in this price range.
My Onkyo Home Theater Receiver shorted out after a juice spill in the TV room several months prior. I had this receiver for several years and was very happy with it. Either technology has changed during this period of time or there is a significant difference with this Denon receiver. My rear Bose speakers never sounded so vibrant. I feel that I really have a surround sound system now. With the Onkyo device, it sounded more like a quadraphonic sound system.
My satellite system is not HD (we use it very little with all of the content available over the internet) and it did not recognize the tv signal via coaxial cable. I have not played with this any further to try and work it out.
I have several thousand digital video files on our HTPC and we stream a lot of content over the internet. The Denon is a beautiful addition to my HTPC configuration. I have had zero problems or issues with my Denon.
In fact, I've carved "LOTR & Denon = TRULUV" in a tree in the backyard
