So far, I am similarly pleased with this new unit. The HDMI pass-through is crystal clear. It's nice to finally have an on-screen display when changing receiver settings. I am also very pleased with the newer, higher-definition audio settings for blu-ray disks. One of the first things I listened to with the new unit was Steve Wilson's "Grace for Drowning" on blu-ray. In a word -- sublime.
The audessy set up worked reasonably well, but I found myself making some tweaks afterword (hey - what fun would it be without tweaking?).
I was initially worried about whether 75 watts/channel would be enough power in my great room, but it's fine. With reasonably efficient speakers and a powered subwoofer, it'll play loud enough to send your significant other scurrying from the room.
At a price point of $300, it's hard to imagine a better value in an A/V receiver.
My Onkyo Home Theater Receiver shorted out after a juice spill in the TV room several months prior. I had this receiver for several years and was very happy with it. Either technology has changed during this period of time or there is a significant difference with this Denon receiver. My rear Bose speakers never sounded so vibrant. I feel that I really have a surround sound system now. With the Onkyo device, it sounded more like a quadraphonic sound system.
My satellite system is not HD (we use it very little with all of the content available over the internet) and it did not recognize the tv signal via coaxial cable. I have not played with this any further to try and work it out.
I have several thousand digital video files on our HTPC and we stream a lot of content over the internet. The Denon is a beautiful addition to my HTPC configuration. I have had zero problems or issues with my Denon.
In fact, I've carved "LOTR & Denon = TRULUV" in a tree in the backyard
So I buy this Denon AVR-1612. Hook everything up like before and guess what. It works perfectly.
The video is sharp and flawless.
The sound is just as good as the more expensive Sony. I loose out on iPhone controller and network features, but I use a Logitech Harmony 1100 Universal Remote with Color Touch Screen and probably never would use the iPhone app. And I would never use the network features either, since my DVR allows for streaming from my PC.
Overall, a wonderful, low cost unit.
