Product Description

Combining Denon’s high performance AVR-591 A/V receiver with Boston Acoustics’ MCS 95 5.1 speaker system, the DHT-591BA home theater system features carefully matched components to provide thrilling surround sound for music and movies. The heart of the system is the AVR591. It's equipped with HDMI connectivity (1.4a repeater function) and high resolution surround sound decoders including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. The four HDMI 1.4a inputs are 1080p and 3D (pass through) compatible. The unit also converts analog video sources to HDMI (480i to 480p), allowing a single HDMI cable run to the TV. System calibration is accomplished with Audyssey MultEQ to optimize the Boston speaker system performance for any room. Audyssey Dynamic Volume and Dynamic EQ help deliver smooth tonal balance at any volume level, while eliminating annoying jumps in volume that typically accompany television commercials. The five channel discrete power amplifier is rated at a robust 75 watts per channel, a perfect match for Boston speaker package. The MCS95 speaker system features four identical satellite speakers using 3" mid-bass driver sand 1/2" dome tweeter's and the matching center channel speaker uses dual 3" drivers flanking a 1/2' soft dome tweeter. All five speakers can be bookshelf or table-top mounted, and have an integrated "keyhole" bracket for wall-mounting. The powerful 100 watt subwoofer features a long-throw, Deep Channel Design 8” woofer that reaches all the way down to the lowest deep bass notes. The DHT591BA is a feature and performance packed system that delivers exceptional value.

I ordered this for Father's day at the time Amazon did not have it available directly so went through one of the listed vendors EE. I actually called them directly and they were exceedingly helpful. Also gave a great deal.

The system is well packaged and very nice for the price---I'm not an expert audiophile but it sounds great to us. The Audyssey set-up is very easy. (although there are plenty of manual controls for those who like to tweak). The manual may be helpful to those who know what they are doing but for us it was confusing and we ended up calling for help. (One of the front speakers was not hooked up correctly and therefore none worked--once we resolved that the rest was pretty easy). Those who have set up surround sound before should have no problem.

The whole system is quality build not cheap HTIB. Of course this is not a thousand dollar or more system but for the average buyer it is a great sound and great price. Similar systems for the same price cannot compare. Speakers are nicely made and fit just about anywhere. Again Boston Acoustic makes a very nice product. The speakers are well matched to the reciever. Our Room is 16 X 22 feet, very high ceilings, hardwood floors and lots of glass. It also is part of an open floorplan. Plenty of full-bodied sound for us.

We set up cable box to receiver and then HDMI to TV. We can run TV without turning the whole system on which is nice. You will need 3 HDMI cables. One for the cable box to receiver, one Receiver to TV, and finally one from receiver to your DVD or blue-ray player. There are also plenty of conventional jacks.

This unit has a USB port for ipod and optional dock is available. The system uploads/coverts older VHS to almost HD quality.

The number one problem with most "home theater in a box" offerings is the manufacturers usually pair a low-end receiver with even lower quality cheap speakers. The larger the number of speakers (5.1, 7.1, 7.2), the even greater likelihood you'll end up with the cheeziest possible speakers and a home theater receiver that just barely offers a decent range of features. We had a Kenwood HTiaB, bought maybe five or six years ago, and in that short time the sub-woofer blew out (okay at low levels...but raise it to normal movie volume and it crackled), some of the inputs never worked right (optical was hit-or-miss), I have $100 computer speakers which sound better than the Kenwood set, and the front display on the receiver sometimes worked and sometimes didn't.

Most of the time there's no offering in the price point above the discount junk, but below the hyper-expensive audiophile-level hardware. The low-end stuff just gets features added to it (hello Onkyo) -- but it's still not very good, and I saw from reviews that these systems were prone to failure, sometimes right out of the box. Meanwhile, most of us don't have a few thousand bucks to blow on a high-end home theater system. I nearly went with a Yamaha receiver, but leery about the comments noting it ran then I'd still need to get speakers, which would've pushed the cost much higher (esp. since shipping for speakers tends to be insane).

This Denon / Boston Acoustics pairing is one of the few exceptions. Over the years, I've only owned a few Denon components, but they were always the ones that lasted the longest and sounded the best. As for the speakers -- okay, these aren't Kef or Klipsch -- but Boston Acoustics makes a fine speaker and this set is well-matched to the Denon receiver.

I recently sold a very expensive B&W, JL AUDIO & Sunfire home theatre to save some money and had to replace it so I had something in my room. I have a ps3 and apple tv. I ordered this Denon and Boston setup. I am SHOCKED at how great this thing is. My set up I sold was over $7,000 of sound and YES it was better but, for the difference in money I would never do that again. This system is simply AMAZING for the money and could really be sold for much more. I am truly happy with my decision and I have absolutely no remorse of my downsizing. My living room has more space and less for someone to steal now.. LOL.... I am extremely pleased so here are my pros and cons.

Sound quality of speakers and sub. Mids are a tiny bit lacking but, the sub actually makes up for it as it has a cross over for your liking. once I set that. HAPPY!
Really very immersive sound.
Build quality of all items is tremendous.
Ease of set up.
Ease of sound set up. Mic does it for you on screen in minutes.
It is simply awesome.
Denon unit is simple in design and use. looks great.

I only wished I had never bought the expensive system to begin with. This one rocks loud and clear with plenty of bass.

We just received our Denon DHT-591BA Home Theater System and couldn't be happier! My wife and I are both "fifty-ish" and had grown tired of not being able to discern dialogue in movies and TV programs. I do, however, have a mild, high frequency hearing loss that makes some speech sounds hard for me to hear which doesn't help the matter. Furthermore, the sound effects and ambient sound track in movies often "muddy" speech dialogue to the point I am left guessing what someone said. My wife, who does not have a hearing loss, experienced the same problem. We quit going to the movie theater because of this. What's the point in going to a new movie when you can't clearly hear the dialogue?! And movie theaters seem to have the worst sound systems made.

Initially, we connected our 52" LCD TV to our home stereo system. While that was better than the TV's speakers alone, it still was lacking. We then bought a sound bar that had great ambient sound production, but speech dialogue was still weak. (It is so hard to judge a sound system in a store because you rarely have the store to yourself and cannot block out all the competing sounds of people talking and others fiddling with stereos all around you.) Have you ever tried to listen to a movie soundtrack at BB while a teen is testing a boom box?!

So I got busy researching home theater forums for systems capable of giving good clarity of dialogue especially for movies. This Denon DHT-591BA Home Theater System kept coming up as recommended so we took the plunge. I must say TV/movie sound and speech dialogue have never sounded better! To be able to discern dialogue in a movie like AVATAR is truly music to my ears. We are hearing sounds that we never knew were there. I still have some difficulty with speech detection at times.
