Five-Piece Speaker System for Cinema-Quality Sound

The Denon DHT1312BA Home Theater System comes with a five-piece speaker set from Boston Acoustics. The set includes three satellite speakers, one center speaker, and one down-firing subwoofer, which have been optimized for use with one another. When connected to the AVR-1312 receiver, the speakers produce a dramatic, expansive soundstage. The subwoofer features BassTrac circuitry, which delivers tight, precise bass response by eliminating low-frequency distortions. In addition, the speakers feature a diffracting architecture that is designed to fill every corner of your room with sound.

Premium Audio Technologies Create Convincing Soundstage

The Denon AVR-1312 receiver is outfitted with several audio technologies to ensure an immersive surround sound experience. With equal power amp design, each of the receiver's five 75-watt channels is powered by its own discrete circuitry. This allows the receiver to reproduce original sounds more faithfully than those which use integrated circuits. In addition, the receiver fully supports the latest Blu-ray audio formats, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. These formats play back sound with exceptional fidelity and provide a more realistic soundstage.

Receiver Offers Full HD Support

With four HDMI inputs, the AVR-1312 allows you to route multiple high-definition devices--like game consoles and Blu-ray players--to your TV. It also allows you to connect all of your devices to your TV with a single HDMI cable, reducing cable clutter.

Vivid 3D Visuals with HDMI v1.4a

With the advent of 3D media, it is important to own a receiver that recognizes 3D video signals. Thankfully, the AVR-1312 is 3D-ready: it passes through 3D signals from your Blu-ray player, ensuring that the 3D effect doesn't get lost in translation. It also recognizes signals from 3D television broadcasts.

The AVR-1312 comes equipped with HDMI v1.4a, which gives you access to premium video features. These include Deep Color and x.v.Color support, two color standards that can display a larger color range than standard-definition schemes. The result is a more lifelike, vibrant picture.

Stereo Mini Jack and iPod Connectivity

With the front-side stereo mini jack, the AVR-1312 supports audio playback from any portable audio player. This receiver can also be used with the Denon Networked Control Dock (sold separately) for network streaming or docking your iPod/iPhone. A compressed audio restorer guarantees that standard MP3 playback is crisp and clear.

GUI Overlay and Remote Control for Simple Operation

With its intuitive button layout, the AVR-1312 is designed for ease of use. The front panel is smartly organized, featuring clearly labeled buttons and onboard controls for volume and source. In addition, its on-screen display provides quick information about your system's settings. The included remote control gives you flexibility in controlling your home theater.

The Denon DHT1312BA Home Theater System is backed by a two-year warranty.

I just hooked this system up last night and finished making all the adjustments today. The sound for both movies and music is fantastic. I have it hooked up to a older TV and DVD player and find a more immediate need to upgrade to a blu-ray and flat screen with HDMI outputs. I can't imagine it sounding better but I'm sure it would with other mmodern ccomponents. My iPhone sounds fantastic through it as well. One piece of advice would be the satellite speakers. There are really no options for mounting them to a universal speaker stand. I have them just sitting atop the largest speaker stand platform right now. The only option on the back of these speakers is a keyhole slot. There are no threaded holes or anything else for mounting to speaker stands. A visit to the hardware store with one of the speakers is a must. Or I may just end up buying some black velcro and secure it that way. More mounting options for the speakers is about my only suggestion to Boston Accoustics. Most of the detailed instruction are on the included CD so I would also suggest popping that in before you begin set up and familiarizing yourself with the settings first, especially if this is your first home theatre system. Overall, a great product for the price.

Update: I've had it less than two months and it quit working. I turn it on and within 5 seconds, it shuts itself down and the power light blinks red. I consulted troubleshooting and it says to send it in for repair! My closest authorized repair place is two hours away AND Denon will not cover inbound shipping even if it is a warranty repair! I am NOT happy right now.

Pros: Most home theater per dollar of any of its competitors; perfect price point; finally a package that doesn't include 10 crappy plastic components that is expandable; powered, active subwoofer.

Cons: Minimalistic front panel controls require remote for many configuration options; iPod dock requirement for making network-ready; size (depth) could stand to lose just an inch for standard A/V cabinets/racks

Verdict: There is no better Home Theater in-a-Box (HTiB) out there. Period. In my opinion, no other system came even close and I'm a very picky shopper for big purchases like this. I shop at least 3 manufacturers, at least 3 stores, and at least 3 of any of my top products' competitors before finally pulling the trigger. When I buy anything expensive, I am not a compulsive buyer; and in my humble opinion, this is the rule, not the exception.



Let me just say that I am NOT a compulsive buyer. I do not let my ears make the decision nor am I a "shoot-from-the-hip" decision maker on anything pretty, fancy, feature-laden, trendy, or cool (et al). It normally takes me about a month from the time I decide to buy a new piece and actually buying it. I took 6 months to decide on exactly which HDTV I wanted (and the sweet spot for technology changes roughly every 3-4 months).

I never buy the first run in a series of equipment. I never buy a new technology from the first batch. I never trust a new manufacturer unless they have been around for at least a few successful years. I trust quality and quality can usually be found in the expensive section of Best Buy (such as in the Magnolia Home Theater department).

I was up grading from an old school $1500 Kenwood system I paid for years ago (I know old, but still works) just wanted a smaller speakers. Was in Bestbuy about to buy a $1800 Bose system. It had been awhile since I bought one so I just wanted the same equivalent. One of the "Geek Squad" guys past by so I asked him what model Bose was better (I was looking at two models). The dude was way cool. He said he installs about 200 different systems a month in various houses and of all the ones he installs he would recommend this one. I was shocked considering the $1000 difference! The guy makes NO commission. Paid hourly, spent about an 1hr just helping me out.

He did say Bose is great, but a lot of what you pay for is the advertisement. He also said the sound quality was almost identical. Only people who wanted to pay more and wanted a Bose would notice a differences.

I was skeptical, took a chance, hooked it up (about two hours to hook it up). AND IT SOUNDS GREAT !!! I would highly recommend this system. I have seen systems with 500 watts go for around $900 and this is 650 watts. I rarely turn it up past 50 to loud for me. I have a Samsung 55 in HDTV.

Cons: I wished the digital read out was a bit bigger, I have bad eyes.
Remote is okay, small buttons
Could have a slightly stronger bass

Pros: Compact/ speakers look great
Great Price compared to others
Awesome sound!!!!!
Highly recommended
I have had it for about 9 months now

I took a serious look at all of the home theater receiver manufacturers product lines. I even checked out Consumer Reports and their rating system. The end result...purchase a Denon DHT from Amazon. This unit arrived on-time and in perfect condition. The installation proceeded without any hiccups. And I must say, the surround sound coupled with the power of the receiver is just amazing.
