The AVR-E300 features Audyssey Bronze--Denon's entry level of support for Audyssey technologies. It includes Audyssey MultEQ, Audyssey Dynamic Volume, and Audyssey Dynamic EQ.

This receiver does everything it's supposed to, sets up beautifully, sounds great, is perfect, etc, except for one thing that (in certain specific cases) will really let you down. Denon receivers (not just this one) seem to have a problem decoding Dolby Digital Plus. What is Dolby Digital Plus (or DD+) you ask? Well it just happens to be the audio compression used by Netflix for 5.1 surround sound. If you plan on watching your Netflix videos through any devices that have HDMI passthrough (Playstation 3, WD TV, Chromecast, etc) then you will find your movies and shows sounding pretty crappy.. hissing, audio dropoff, artifacts, garbled dialog, etc.

I've been in contact with Denon, who say they are working on recreating the problem, but even if they do identify it, then you're gonna be waiting for a new firmware to be written, proofed, developed, tested, and rolled out... that's up do you, but I think it might be too much for me.

UPDATE 3/3/2014: Denon has rolled out a big firmware update (about 25 minutes to install) which has completely fixed this issue. I will leave the old review up so people can understand what WAS happening, but it is completely fixed. The receiver is now an awesome entry-level surround HDMI receiver which I would recommend to anyone - not to mention that Denon customer support took a customer issue seriously, followed up, stayed in contact and fixed the issue. 10/10 would complain again.

We have identified the issue with Netflix and DD+ and plan to fix it via online firmware update towards the end of February. In the meantime, setting your Netflix device's digital output to PCM or Stereo will alleviate the issue. We appreciate your continued patience as we work to resolve this issue.

I just got this, mostly because I had been eyeing a new receiver for a while and the price dropped quite a bit to make this a great deal. Word is Denon is coming out with several new models this year, which is likely the reason for the drop in price. It's still a great receiver but a couple of things were surprising to me - first, the remote is not programmable. My fault for assuming it would be, but no where does the manual (which I had to download because it doesn't come with anything more than the set up manual) say whether it is or isn't. At any rate, I assumed a new receiver would have a programmable remote - that's one reason I wanted a receiver, to cut down on multiple remotes. Now, I have to buy one. Not the end of the world, but buyers should know. Second, it has to plug into your network/router in order to be hooked up. This too was surprising since every device I have has WiFi. I can understand why you need to hard wire connect, but my router is nowhere near my receiver, so it's not an option for me to plug my network into my new receiver. Part of the problem is my internet, it's satellite, so the router is limited to my office/plug in. But again, seems odd this doesn't have WiFi option. While the 'specs' say something about 175W, the max per speaker is 75W. It's clever 'marketing'. Really, you want at least 100W per speaker, but I don't spend thousands of dollars on speakers so again, this one is good enough for me. All in all, it's still a really good receiver at a great price. It's VERY easy to set up, which is great. It's sleek, will really help consolidate all of my devices (TV, DVD, Directv, Wii, etc.) and will work well for me. But I thought I would share a couple of things that may influence your purchasing decision.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a good, entry-level networking receiver. Setup is easy right from the start. The easy-connect speaker connections allow you to insert wires quickly and easily instead of twisting and screwing. The guided setup takes you through connecting your devices and calibrating your speakers using Audyssey.

Video and sound quality is everything you'd expect from a good quality receiver. The front LED text is a nice blue-white hue and fits plenty of text so you can view song names when you are listening to internet radio. There is also an HDMI port on the front of the device, which is convenenient for quickly connecting mobile video devices.

The networking feature allows you to listen to music and talk radio from services like basic internet music and talk stations, SiriusXM, Pandora, and Spotify. However, at this price point I would expect this receiver to have Wi-Fi like other receivers do, and not just a wired Ethernet connection.

Menu navigation is quick and easy. The GUI is simple and it responds quickly to remote control commands. The downloadable smartphone app works well on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus running CyanogenMod 10 with Android 4.2.2. It takes a few seconds to get started when you first try and play internet radio, but I suspect that is because it is downloading station info. Once that is completed, things speed up a bit. You are able to control most aspects of the receiver with the remote app, and you can view the song info and album art for the music you are playing on the receiver.

The reason I am giving this receiver only 4 stars and not 5 is for a few reasons.

So for the first three months I would have given this 4 or 5 stars, but then the 3 month mark hit. I was watching TV when suddenly the center channel started emitting static. I thought it was simply a cross some place so I checked the connections and they looked ok so I tried a different speaker and it was the same static. I didn't have any other speaker wire so I disconnected the center channel and just disabled it in the setup. This worked for about 10 days until I got more speaker wire and hooked the center channel back up and it worked fine for a couple hours, then the static returned. However, this time even disabling the center channel didn't work as all stations in Dolby would have zero commentary because that's usually on the center channel. I tried everything including doing a factory reset and nothing fixed it. I tried to redo Audyssey but the tone was so low that the mic couldn't pick it up. So now I'm sitting here with a receiver that doesn't work so I figure a warranty would be great. Yeah until you realize that the only place near me, that is a Denon Authorized Service Center, is 20 miles away and told me it would take at least 10 days. Ok so I tried to call Denon and after 45 minutes I hung up since it was apparent I would never get through. I'm assuming I can just send it in to their OEM Panurgy in New Jersey but then I have to pay shipping and cross my fingers on when I will get it back. I've had Sony and Onkyo receivers and I've never had one fail but this one didn't even make it past 90 days.

Other than the failure I liked it as the sound was great and Airplay is a fantastic feature. However, the service is quite frankly terrible and I will never buy another Denon product.
