By Martin Edwards on January 25, 2006
The Denon AVR-1506 is a beautiful-looking 7.1 surround receiver, albeit a little confusing. I replaced my Sony STR-DE997 7.1 receiver with the silver Denon unit just this week. I've had the AVR-1506 in my home for a few days now, and can sum up the good & bad quite easily.

I tested this receiver with B&W DM603 front speakers, DM601 rear speakers, and the CC6 centre channel, all bi-wired with Monster Cable.

Upon unpacking it, the first thing I noticed was the horrible remote. They really need to take a lesson from someone like Sony, or Pioneer. Button colours are horrendous to say the least, and button functions don't make much sense, considering this receiver is supposed to be the brains behind your entire system.

To confuse you, Denon decided you must press 4 on the number pad for DVD input, and 5 for TV. These are PRIMARY functions and as such, should have their own button. They should not be piggy-backing on the number pad.

What's great about the Denon is most certainly the sound, at least in 2-channel stereo. Although it's only rated at 75 watts per channel, the power rating is different from the standard manufacturers. And 75 watts is quite adequate, except in the case of the centre channel. I'm not sure if the centre channel receives a full 75 watts, or if there is something wrong with it, but it cannot power my B&W CC6 in Dolby Digital. Sound is very muffled, and I strained to hear voices. However, in dts mode, the centre channel works properly. (Also, with my Sony 5.1 system powering the same speakers, sound is flawless.)

Other than the centre channel mystery, sound from the other speakers is quite excellent. Bass is obvious, but not unnatural.

First, the power button on the front panel did not work, then power up the remote control. try again turned on or off from the front panel without success.
LED power indicator does not work either.
in terms of sound is excellent, clear and strong, good power, the sound effects are great, but the menus are complicated
