Top Customer Reviews
1. Amazing sound.
2. Pro Logic IIx-does a great job of turning 2 channel sources into 5.1.
3. Good built-in crossover that helps blend the right frequencies in order to get the optimal sound out of your speakers no matter the size or placement.
4. 3D pass-thru - not found on most receivers at this price.
1. Flimsy remote. Feels very light and plasticky.
2. No Audacy auto setup-not surprising at this price tho.
3. No video pass-thru on standby. I don't really care about this, but if you ant to use your tv without having the receiver on this will make it difficult.
Despite this receivers flaws you really can't go wrong with it. Denon makes very good audio equipment and it shows in this entry-level receiver. If you can get it for around $200 it is a steal!
TWO YEAR UPDATE
I have bene using this receiver for almost two years now and I still really like it. It puts out big sound and does a good job with all my equipment. I don't think you can get this exact model anymore, but I would definitely look at the yearly replacement model. I'm sure it has a few upgraded features at near the same price as I paid.
Let me start by saying that I am not one of those reviewers who give terrible ratings because the unit came late or was scratched or I felt shafted for some other dumb reason, when reviews should be about the products. I also wish to add I have a little experience and am not a total airhead when it comes to these things, having installed/connected loads of Flat screens on walls and run basic setups for friends and family.
This review is about MY experience and I am guessing that I must be in the minority based on the other reviews here, this is actually the 1st time that a well reviewed product that I have purchased has let me down.
I have an older Panasonic 42" viera plasma 720p and am using a basic LG BluRay player, despite all my attempts I just cannot get a picture from the receiver, plug in the player directly into the TV and it works great, the receiver is getting the signal from the player because I can see it on the front display as it flashes PCM/HDMI but no output, have tried different cables everything!!.
after calling Denon customer service I got some helpful advice and they admitted it could be a "handshake" problem between the TV and the receiver. At this point i was not even going to post a bad review as these things happen and even though its SUPPOSED to work I have read there are compatibility issues with HDMI 1.3, 1.3a, 1.4 etc etc. its ironic that the customer service rep said this is there #1 problem with HDMI/compatibility.
He suggested as workaround, plug the Bluray player directly into the TV and get my audio via the Coaxial *ding* great Idea!!Read more ›
The sound from my TV, DVD, and FM is now fantastic. I'm happy with this "entry level" receiver that I bought myself for Christmas. Everything works perfectly and the set looks great.
While this is very basic 5.1 surround receiver, it has quite a lot to offer the budget audio enthusiast; namely, clean consistent sound across the spectrum. There are no holes in the listening experience but very clean highs, perfect mid range and tight, solid bass.
While I was reviewing other units, I kept on noticing problems with different aspects concerning the HMDI hook ups and other anomalous things. My final two choices I had narrowed down in my price range were the Denon and the Sony STRDH520 7.1 Channel 3D AV Receiver (Black). While the Sony was by far more feature rich, there were enough complaints that kept me leaning towards the Denon, which boasted 91/2 stars and a long history of excellence. Sony seems to have quality issues in their manufacturing, because many different products from them often have a fair amount of problem-ed units.
The only drawback for me is that I am pushing 8ohm speakers and the amp is designed for driving 6ohm speakers more efficiently. I really have to crank it to get any level of sound out of it passed a whisper, but in the end this isn't much of a problem. The discrete separate amplification circuits rated at .08% THD, you can crank this guy up with minimal distortion until the very end of the dial. I can get an acceptable volume without any discernible distortion for music and movie viewing.Read more ›
