There are three $500 receivers to consider, if you're buying one in 2010 - Onkyo TX-SR608, Pioneer VSX-1020-K and this one. All three feature the latest HDMI 1.4, which is necessary for 3D signals. Here's how they compare:
-The Onkyo is the most powerful in terms of real world performance, followed by the Denon and finally the Pioneer. All three perform at par for normal listening volumes, but the Onkyo can handle very high volumes the best, while the Pioneer runs out of breath
-The Denon has Audyssey Multi-Eq, which automatically calibrates the receiver for use in your room (a mic is provided). The Onkyo has a similar but less versatile Audyssey 2EQ. Pioneer has its own system called MCACC which also works well, but Audyssey may be slightly better.
-All three can upconvert analog sources via HDMI - hence you'll only need one HDMI cable to connect to the TV. The 1.4 spec supports an audio return channel, so the TV's sound can be output to the receiver without extra cables. The Pioneer and Denon use the excellent Anchor Bay chipset, while the Onkyo uses the slightly inferior Faroudja DCDi chipset for video processing.
-The Pioneer and the Denon have a front USB input where you can connect your iPod (or iPhone) directly. You can browse playlists etc using the receiver's remote via the onscreen display.Read more ›
NOTE: This receiver is EXACTLY like the 791 except the 1911 adds HD radio and pre-outs for Zone-2. Everything else is the same.
This receiver is an upgrade from a Sony HTIB system. In all regards it is better. Setup and all the configuration can be tougher than HTIBs. Please Google 'batpig' and 'denon' for setup info. He put together a terrific website on setting up Denon AVRs while explaining all the features and settings in normal terms.
I use this with a Panasonic Blu-Ray, Sony CD and my iPod classic (5th gen). All work great.
There was very little setup other than the initial speaker auto calibration needed. The only setup I did besides the auto calibration (Audyssey setup) was to delete unused inputs and change the Dynamic EQ offset on some music inputs (read about this on Batpig's website).
The speaker calibration (Audyssey) and Dynamic EQ make my somewhat mediocre older speakers sound wonderful. This is a huge selling point to me, compared to older receivers and HTIB setups.
USB port: The USB port is great. It works perfect with my iPod. It is not sluggish when searching through artists, etc. Unfortunately I am limited to only one of the two iPod control modes because I have an older iPod. You can read more about this in the manual. It plays music off USB flash drives too. I can quickly copy a few mp3 from my laptop to a spare USB drive and pop it in the Denon for music.
**Be Aware some people with iPhones and OS4 are reporting issues connecting via USB.Read more ›

When you look at the back of this receiver you think wow, this receiver cant be as sophisticated as other receivers that have a million jacks. This thing is made for HDMI devices and little expansion beyond that. If you have more than one non-hdmi device, then this model is not for you.
Some things to note:
- the instruction manual has been simplified since the 1909 model, it now has a simplified, basic, and advanced setup section. You can get up and running quickly and as you become more familiar with the receiver move onto advanced setup functionality. While I feel the manual covers everything it does a poor job of explaining what each thing is. (for example HDMI passthru)
- The remote is still a bear, but really a/v receivers are complicated devices. It is an improvement over the 1909 remote.
- HDMI passthru has been improved. What this means is when the receiver is off (standby mode), it will let a device's a/v signal pass through to your TV. In my case I let the Directv receiver passthru, so you can watch TV without surround sound being turned on. When you turn on the receiver, only the video signal is passed through to the TV. This is a big feature with the wife and in-laws. The improvement with this model is you can assign which HDMI input gets passed through, on the 1909 it was only the first device.Read more ›
