I did a lot of research, like most of you will do, and determined that this was the best I could do with my budget. My primary concerns were sound quality and getting enough power for a large room (19' x 20') This does well in those regards, while you sacrifice in other areas. For this price you can't have everything!

The components seem quality built. The receiver is heavy and well ventilated. The speakers are heavy and wooden. Everything is just sturdy. It shipped well packed in a heavy box.
The amplifier itself is the same circuitry and power rating you'll find in more expensive Denon receivers, like the 591 and 1611. From what I gather it's THD and power compare well with more expensive models. It certainly does a good job with the included speakers. It will get ridiculous house party loud, no worries.
The HDMI inputs gave no problems. Denon is sometimes noted for handshake problems, but I did not encounter any. I have a Motorola DVR, a Sony BDP-S570 blu-ray and a Samsung PNC50C450 and they all sync up perfectly. I did the latest firmware updates on each device prior to the Denon arriving.
The sound is pretty tweak-able, if you have the patience. More on that later.
The included speaker wires are long.

Setting this thing up is tedious. There's no surround auto setup. You need to measure your speaker distances manually. You need to tweak the loudness of each speaker to your liking. They should all be equal. You need to specify the type of each speaker.. etc. The menus are not very intuitive. The included speaker wire is pretty thin 22 gauge. I suppose this is ok, but it seems fragile and I prefer some more durable, less resistive 16 gauge wire for the long runs in my room. You may want to play with the crossover frequencies also.

I was deciding between Onkyo HT-S3300, Yamaha YHT-393BL, and Denon DHT-391XP. I went with Denon. What strikes me is the size of the speakers. They are big! The surround speakers are larger than Yamaha's and Onkyo's fronts, while the front, center and the sub are really big for an entry level system. And unlike Yamaha and Onkyo, Denon's speakers are wooden, though we're not talking hardwood here. Size of speakers was probably the one thing that Denon had as a clear advantage and eventually swayed my opinion, given that everyone was complaining about the mediocrity of Yamaha and Onkyo speakers. I gathered that the receivers are quite comparable and just didn't like the miniscule size of Onkyo and (especially) Yamaha speakers. When I was ordering the system, the person in the store said the Yamaha and Denon weren't actually comparable and that Denon was much better.

Now, for the sound quality: I'm blown away by the sound quality and volume. Granted, my space is rather smallish. It's a corner in the lower floor of my house. It's about 11'x11'. I have a Panasonic 42' plasma and a FIOS. The bass is very strong and deep. I read some reviews where people complained about the lack of bass. I can't comment on their experience, but I keep my sub at only half the volume and it's really deep and strong. I have a FIOS, so the movies are in Dolby Digital. The sound is excellent: strong, crisp, clear, with a loud and strong, but not overpowering bass. I don't have a Blu-ray, so I can't comment on how the sound would be in Tru-HD. And while the movies sound is great, I'm still trying to figure out how good the sound is while listening music. I may post on that once I get more chance to test the system.

In short, if you want my recommendation, I'd say absolutely positive. Denon gives 2 year warranty for the receiver, and 5 years for the speakers.

I bought this system around one month ago from Amazon and am very pleased with the purchase. I was little worried about Denon speakers as there were not many reviews for speakers but knew that they make very fine receivers. Anyhow I decided to take the plunge considering the good service Amazon would provide if I was not happy.

Oh boy glad I made the decision. For the low price this package comes you cannot compare it with any other systems. Yes there are home theatre systems with better receivers and sound system but not for this price.

My living room is fair sized (16 x 14) and so far I am happy with the sound quality. This system does not have Audyssey and dynamic volume control but for that I had to shell out an extra 250 and decided to live without those features. This is my first HTIB and I have not tweaked many settings but still watching movies and listening to music is a pleasure.

I am not providing any technical details as its available out there but wanted to add a review to help others buy the system if they do not want to break the bank but still need a good, solid entry level HTIB.

Denon makes a great reciever. I made the following changes:

Surround Mode: DTS NEO 6: Cinema
Made all speakers SMALL, disable S.B (Surround backs, only for 7.1 systems)
Kept sub on LFE - because fronts are satellites (small), not full tower speakers.
Went into TONE and changed TREBLE to +6.0
Turned ON RESTORER - improves audio quality even if there is no compression.
Upped right and left surround channels from 0 to +6.0
Set proper distances to all speakers from couch
Bought 16 AWG speaker wire, the included wire looks way to thin.

Could not be happier with the receiver. Built sturdy, looks great, very good options. You can set the frequency cutoffs for the surrounds and sub, still fiddling with that to find the best setting. Surround sound is incredible. When you hook up this system, play Transformers 2 and just watch the intro where it shows the Dreamworks and Paramount logo - I was blown away. All speakers work very accurately. Some people had a problem with the lack of inputs on the back of the receiver, however I found it perfectly fine because all my components (blu-ray, xbox360, wii) go into the TV first and then a single optical digital audio out goes to the receiver.

Subwoofer is also very powerful and responsive, without overpowering all the audio.

My one complaint is the satellite speakers. Why would Denon ever slap their name on these horrible things? The ONLY thing satellites have to do is provide the mid and upper tones - it isn't expensive to build a good tweeter and 3" woofer. So why is the treble so lacking? Even with the treble maxed out, I feel like I am starving for the clear high pitched sound effects.
