Top Customer Reviews
What I like most is I no longer have to constantly adjust the sound to the movie I am watching. I used to have to turn the sound up or down multiple times during a movie to adjust to action scenes or conversation. Not any more, this system keeps the movie's background music/noises and conversation balanced perfectly. My friend has a $2k receiver and it has the same problem that you have to adjust the sound constantly, maybe he adjusted it wrong. All I know is this system did it for me and perfectly with the microphone you set up at the listening positions and it adjusted the sound for me.
The only con I have is that the remote can be confusing until the household members remember how I had to set it up. For example, I set up the Game 2 assignment to correspond to my philips dvd/flash drive upconverter. But that isn't really Denon's fault as they tried to set up as many common buttons as possible. I just purchased a logitech smart remote and that should simplify things for them once I get it programmed.
Cons; the most annoying feature is the remote - truly difficult to figure out. It doesn't help that instructions are on a cd rom manual, which itself is rather tough to follow. I still can't get the damn thing to communicate with my TV or cable box [both relatively new]. I know saving money is the in thing for companies, but a $0.99 instructions book shouldn't kill profits. On screen menus also require getting used to.
Hint: Do not do the sound test (speaker set up) at night. It is really loud.
