Product Description

From the Manufacturer

From the Manufacturer

The Denon AVR1610 5.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver with 1080p HDMI Connectivity - Featuring Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio

The AVR-1610 is a versatile A/V surround receiver with a 5.1-channel amplifier that supports DolbyTrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding. And, the AVR-1610 is fully equipped with Denon's proven features for high quality sound, such as Compressed Audio Restorer, Direct Mechanical Ground Construction and Minimum Signal Paths. It also features Dolby Pro Logic IIz, a technology that adds a vertical dimension at the front for a more exciting surround sound experience.

Includes three HDMI inputs and two HD-compatible component inputs
(View larger)
Last, but not least, the high-performance AVR-1610 includes Audyssey MultEQ, Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume for optimum tonal balance, with no volume jump due to commercial interruptions.

Superior Sound at an Optimum Price

Affordability and high performance are the hallmarks of the AVR-1610 home theater receiver, which features the latest high resolution audio decoders, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. As well, the AVR-1610 is one of the first to include Dolby’s new Pro Logic IIz decoding, which provides front channel height effects, to dramatically increase the front soundstage for the ultimate surround sound experience.

With three HDMI inputs and two HD-compatible component inputs, the AVR-1610 features analog-to-digital HDMI video conversion, allowing a single HDMI cable run to your HDTV, simplifying connections and minimizing cable costs at the same time. Top audio fidelity is assured with the Audyssey MultEQ room acoustic measurement and correction system, which analyzes the speakers and the listening room at up to six measurement points (microphone included) and automatically corrects the response for the smoothest, most natural tonal balance. Audyssey Dynamic Volume and Dynamic EQ ensure rich tonal quality at any volume level, with no annoying volume jumps at commercial interruptions. You can also connect and control your iPod/touch or iPhone using one of Denon’s available iPod/iPhone docks, which provides on-screen artist, album and song information.

Robust Power Source for Each Block

To produce a clear, stable power circuit that prevents unwanted noise from affecting the sound, the AVR-1610 has a dedicated CPU transformer that is separate from the audio and video circuitry. The AVR-1610 is endowed with a powerful rectifier circuit with 10,000 block capacitors and a bridge diode of 8A capacity, surpassing typical models in this price range, to supply stable current with negligible noise.

Analog to HDMI Up-Conversion

Analog video input signals (composite, S-Video component) are converted to digital video signals and transmitted to the HDMI output port. Digital video signals are sent to the HDMI output even when multiple HDMI devices such as a video camera or a game console are connected to the AVR-1610. One HDMI cable is all that is needed to connect the AVR-1610 to a TV or monitor. You can also use the On-Screen Display to check the AVR-1610's status.

Dolby Pro Logic IIz Processing

Dolby Pro Logic IIz introduces a new dimension to home theater entertainment through the addition of a pair of front height channels. Compatible with stereo, 5.1 or 7.1 content, Dolby Pro Logic IIz provides enhanced spaciousness, depth and dimension to movies, concert video and video game playback while maintaining the full integrity of the source mix. (Dolby Pro Logic IIz playback requires a separate 2-channel amplifier.)

Minimum Signal Path for Clear Audio and Video Signal

The "simple and straight" design concept has been thoroughly implemented in the signal paths to contribute to immaculately clean audio and video playback. Signal paths are as short as possibly to keep signal degradation in the audio and the video circuitry to an absolute minimum.

Direct Mechanical Ground Construction

Vibration-resistant construction has been reviewed to thoroughly suppress the adverse influence of vibration on sound quality. The power transformers, a source of vibration, have been securely mounted on the highly rigid bottom chassis. Direct mounting of cast-iron feet to the radiator in near proximity to each other serves to suppress mutual vibration with the power transformers and other sources of vibration.

Audyssey Dynamic Volume for Real-Time Volume Adjustment

Audyssey Dynamic Volume constantly monitors the sound sources and adjusts the volume to the optimum level for the particular source being heard without sacrificing dynamic range. The AVR-1610 is also equipped with Audyssey MultiEQ which measures the acoustic characteristics of the room to obtain the optimum acoustic effects, and Dynamic ED which reproduces the high and low range with the optimum acoustic effect during low volume levels. Dynamic Volume combines these two functions to achieve maximum performance.

Based on a sub-$400 budget, I focused on this and the Yamaha 465. In researching it, a toss-up really emerged and the decision was made in talking to a very knowledgeable guy at Crutchfield. Having set it up last night and having played with it the better part of today, I am very content with my purchase. I fired up some Blu Ray's with both PCM and DTS-MA/ True HD and was very pleased with the upgrade over standard DD/DTS. The soundstage was just bigger. The opening scene from my kids favorite movie, Cars, was no longer weak. The opening race scene was clear and appropriately loud. The bump on my stars comes from the fact that the manual is awful. I gave up on it early on and went with the trial and error approach with the on-screen menu, which is more than adequate, but you need to have a basic tech sense in order to take that route. On another set-up note, the microphone setup is well done and made a big difference in the sound generated from my SS speakers, before versus after.

Since I'm brand new to the A/V world, I did a lot of researching before making my decision on which receiver to buy. I worked hard to figure out all the lingo and I checked out just about every option available below $400, including those with built-in DVD players, etc. I read every review I could find ([...] is great for this), posted questions on the AVS forums, etc. I'm very thorough when I'm spending a lot of money like this.

I didn't need a 7.1 system so I focused on 5.1 systems. Even though I'm only using a 2.0 setup right now (front left and right speakers only), I want to be able to add the other speakers and a sub in the future. So my review is only on my 2.0 setup. I can't provide any feedback on a full 5.1 surround setup.

One of the things I was looking for was upconverting (the ability to plug all of my components (HDMI, component cable, and composite) into the receiver and run 1 HDMI cable out to the TV for the video and speaker wires out to the speakers for audio). You can use the HDMI for audio too if you want to use your TV speakers, but if you're buying a good receiver, it just makes sense to buy some decent speakers to take advantage of it. Upconverting was essential for me since I'm mounting the TV on the wall about 15' away from the receiver and didn't want to buy lots of long cables for each type of input and then have to run them behind the wall. I was also looking for a receiver with lots of inputs to handle all of my components (HD DVR, Wii, DVD player, video baby monitor) and still have room to add more pieces in the future.

I'm happy to report that I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. The receiver does a good job of upconverting the analog video inputs and they all look pretty nice on my 46" LCD.

I purchased this unit to replace an older Denon unit that was not HDMI equipped. I loved the older unit and hated to replace it. However, as I quickly discovered, Denon has made some considerable improvements.

For starters, the use of HDMI cables replaced a jungle of composite and optical cables. I used one HDMI cable from my FIOS box, one from my Blu-Ray DVD, and one from the Denon unit to the HD television. The end result is better picture and sound quality.

Installation time for the unit was about 30-minutes. This was because the speaker wiring was already in place. I just had to transfer the connections from the old unit to this one. The HDMI cable takes only a few seconds to plug in.

Once the speaker and HDMI connections were in place, the next step was to balance the system. You use the microphone that comes with this unit and mount it to ear height. If you have a camera tripod that is the easiest way. The microphone has a screw mount for the tripod. You place it where you will be listening at, as I just stated, ear height. Once you plug the microphone in the unit automatically goes into setup mode and displays a menu on the television screen. You just use the Enter button on the remote control and it runs through a series of sound and speaker checks that takes about 3 minutes or so. If your room has multiple listening points, you repeat this procedure for each listening point.

If any of your speakers are mis-wired (have positive and negative reversed), the setup will give you an out of phase warning.

Once the setup is complete, you click the calculate option. This will take a couple of minutes while it performs internal calculations for optimal speaker equalization. Finally you save the settings, sit back, and enjoy your new system.

I upgraded from a Pioneer VSX-515 (no HDMI) and did a lot of research before deciding on this receiver. AVS Forum was a great help (and I highly, highly recommend Batpig's "Denon to English" setup guide).

Armed with that guide, the manual made MUCH more sense.

Out of the box, the unit sounded good, even before I did any of the Audyssey auto-setup things. I had to order a microphone stand adapter to properly mount the microphone and perform the setup, but if you own a camera tripod, that should be sufficient. I was in a hurry and used a small step-stool with the mic sitting on the top step, and it actually surprised me how great a job it did.

Even without approaching the setup in an optimal way, the results were noticable. The system correctly set my speaker distances, and measured the acoustics of my room so well that watching TV and movies is a completely new experience. My equipment was always good, but it never sounded THIS good. The receiver compensated for some surround placement issues, warned me of an out-of-phase speaker, and cleaned up my subwoofer so well, I no longer feel like I need to move them elsewhere in the room to get the most out of them.

I can't wait till the mic stand adapter arrives so I can spend a little time with this receiver and REALLY run through the auto-setup the right way (I only measured 3 of the available 6 locations, too!).

All in all, I'm happy with this purchase. It's some of the best money I've spent. I run my PS3 and Dish network HD-PVR through it with no problems, and I previously had a Nintendo Wii connected through the component that had ZERO issues getting to the TV via the single HDMI cable. So, so nice to have only ONE cable going from the receiver to the TV.

If you're on the fence, just go for it. You won't be disappointed.
