It's been a lot longer now and I had to edit this review to add that this piece of equipment did nothing for me. Not only lost audio but also video and ended up taking it for service. Took it to a service repair shop a second time and it got more problems than it did originally. Word from the shop was that perhaps this Denon receiver is not compatible with my Panasonic 3D Wi-fi Blu-Ray player. I'll never buy this brand receiver again. Reconnected my blu-ray player to my old Panasonic all-in-one (dvd) home theater and it works! Not with the sound that I was hoping to get from the Denon but at least I can watch and listen to my movies which is a lot more than I can say for the AVR-1312. I threw my money away but is good thing it was inexpensive since I paid less than $150.00 brand new. Next time I pay more and get something worth paying for.
Since I'm tired of taking it to the service dealer which is about an hour away, I guess I'll keep it and leave it laying around in case a need a radio for a party outdoors.
The biggest motivation for writing this review though, is the QUALITY of audio I am now hearing through my speakers. I am using a set of speakers from the Logitech Z530 bundle (minus subwoofer), and these sound better on the Denon AVR-1312, than they did in their native setup!!!! That really says something, to me. There are a load of customization options within the receiver to control how it will process the output, and these really seem to make a difference in sound quality. Truthfully, I am not even sure I need a subwoofer at this point, because either the crossover, or all the receiver options just make the satellites sound so good.
I am pretty skilled music and audio wise, but all the crap about home stereos, cross overs, amplifiers, receivers, decks, speakers, has always bored me to death. I have very little interest in setting all of that up, or learning about it. But I will say, buying this receiver, plus the maybe 1 hour I spent setting it up, is one of the greatest investments to keeping my personal rage and frustration down, I have ever made.
Totally worth the $179.99!!!
If you're looking for a reasonably priced receiver from a reputable company that works well with 5.1 'home theater,' this is a great product.
I've yet to try it with digital audio, but the analog I've used so far has been great. There's tons of options to customize sound to your speakers. The audio is very clean, and can be as balanced or unbalanced as you desire. No audible distortion to my ears. A good amount of inputs.
Definitive pros of the Denon AVR-1312:
- For the price, you really can NOT beat it. I got mine for $135.
- Although I won't use video, it has HDMI pass-through and 3D support.
- Good amount of inputs for a receiver in this price range.
- The volume dial locks into place, and doesn't freely glide. Gives a good feeling of control.
- Very clear display, white colored font.
- 3.5mm input on front, as well as Composite and RCA stereo.
- Headphone out. (The headphone out doesn't seem to stay "equalized" sadly, seems very flat.)
- Has a sleep timer.
- About 75 WPC at 8 ohms, powerful enough for a fairly "big" sized living room/family room for entertainment.
- Gives you the option to delay your audio signal, in case your television has input-lag. Allowing for audio-visual synchronization control.
- Dedicated sub-woofer out line.
- By far, the best looking receiver line I've seen in years. (Denon AVR-13XX)
- Light around the power button isn't overly bright/obnoxious.
- Optional iPod/iTouch (maybe phone?) dock controller.
My only problems with this receiver are VERY insignificant/small, mostly personal issues:
- Not sure if I can set the "surround out" to be used a sub woofer yet, but I'm sure I can. (And possibly have two subs. Not that I'd use it, just a thought.)
- As far as I can tell, you can't change what the display says. (You CAN, but it won't stay on that setting for longer than 10 seconds.)
- Only binding posts on stereo channels.
- No component video out. (Doesn't matter, I bought this to be used for audio on my PC. Some people may not like this though.)
