Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )

This is a nice receiver that does a lot of things well. It's at the top of Denon's lower line of network receivers, and is very similar to (but slightly less feature-rich than) their AVR-X2000 model. By itself, while having a few shortcomings for my needs, it's overall a solid unit with some really neat features. At its price point, though, it has some strong competition from other major brands that have put out less expensive receivers with similar power ratings but with more connections and features. This review is a bit lengthy, but I think that $500-$600 is a lot of money, and I hope that you find it helpful in your search for a new receiver.

I read about and discuss receivers on an audio/video forum (Audioholics) a lot, and the things that I recommend that you look at when shopping are: connections (does it have everything that you want/need), auto calibration (a huge plus, IMO), features (can it do everything that you want), power (can it play as loud as you want and still sound good), ease of use, and the remote control. Price, of course, also weighs into it - I never want to spend more than I have to in order to get what I want, but I don't want to spend less and then be unhappy for years because I bought something that doesn't do what I want. This Denon doesn't do everything that I want, but it might be perfect for you depending on your needs.

The video provides an overview of the receiver, including a look under the hood. The main review is below.

I'm going to compare this against similarly priced network receivers from Onkyo, Pioneer, and Denon because I have recent experience with those brands.

I feel obligated to write this review, since there's another review up here by someone who does not own the product. Not only did I "think before you buy", but I also thought before I wrote this review. I just hooked mine up, so this is early impressions.

I just setup a 3D home theater, and discovered that my Sony STR-DA3400ES 7.1 Channel AV Receiver does not pass the 3D signal. It downgrades the signal to non-high speed. So, the Denon AVR-E400 is its replacement in this setup. I chose the E400 over the E300 for its video up-scaling and up-conversion. That's one feature of the Sony that I really like - only connecting a single HDMI cable to my projector, and all non-HDMI inputs are up-converted to HDMI.

Setup was extremely simple. This receiver is made for HDMI, so Denon got rid of a lot of useless ports on the back. Just one component video input, no s-video, etc. I much prefer that over the Sony with its massive switchboard of ports that I'll never use. The Wii uses component video, and an old camcorder uses composite if I need it. One gripe is that the speaker connections do not support banana plugs, so I had to pop those off my speaker wires. I also hooked up a wired network connection, from an gigabit switch, to take advantage of the network features of the receiver.

Once powered on, the onscreen setup wizard is easy to use. I skipped the automatic speaker adjustments for now. After I get all the boxes and such out of the room, it'll be ready for acoustic optimization. Be aware that the default volume level is completely turned off. The speaker test tone won't make a sound during setup until you raise the volume.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have owned a sizable number of home theater amps over the past 18 years: 1 Sony; 3 Harman Kardon's; 4 Yamaha's; & 3 Denon's. The Denon AVR-E400 is my 12th receiver, and arguably the most technologically advanced and full-featured, though not the best sounding. Despite the huge number of features present on this unit, I can honestly say it was probably the easiest to setup. I've been out of home theater for a while, due to a shortage of both physical space, and interest in the hobby, so I was a bit rusty on the initial setup procedure involved. I was VERY grateful for Denon's On-Screen GUI w/ Setup Assistant that pretty much walked me through the initial steps without having to refer to the owners manual continually. I would, however, have liked to see the 8 point Audyssey MultEQ XT or XT32 room equalization instead of the more basic 6 point Audyssey MultEQ version this receiver has. The MultEQ XT or XT32 has you place the microphone in up to 8 different positions around the room to truly account for the varying acoustics of large or unusually shaped rooms. But the 6 measurement calibration the E400 performed sounded pretty darn good, though.

When I saw this receiver had Push-Button speaker connectors I almost didn't buy it for that reason alone! I have struggled for years with the pathetically weak and always too narrow spring loaded connectors of numerous vintage amplifiers and receivers. Well, these are not your Daddy's spring loaded connectors! The Push-Button speaker connectors on the Denon E400 are big and fat, and hold both 12 AWG bare wire and banana connectors like a pit-bull. It did get a little crowded on the front right channel when using the banana plugs, but everything fit in the end.
