By Rex Kullmann VINE VOICE on May 17, 2012
If you care about sound quality more than features, you might like this Denon AV receiver.

This is a 5.1 surround receiver, meaning it can power a left, right, center, left and right surround and a subwoofer. I'm never going to have more than that, and I doubt most people will either unless they have a dedicated theatre room in their homes. That makes 7.1 receivers a waste for most of us.

Speaking of waste, like some other manufacturers, Denon has eliminated some features that used to be standard. There are no "B" speakers, no component inputs, no analog audio output and no AM radio. In short, everything you wern't using anyway is gone now.

What you get instead is 4 HDMI inputs plus one on the front, an ethernet port, 5 sets of good quality banana terminals for speakers, and a USB port on the front for your iPad/iPhone or flash drive. Useful stuff. I especially like the front mounted HDMI port. When my friend comes over with his Xbox in tow, I don't have to dig behind the receiver to plug it in.

This receiver is new for 2012, and as you'd expect it supports all the current standards. HDMI supports 3D and audio return channel. Also new this year for Denon is a revised on-screen menu system. It's simple and clean and easy to use, but the set-up assistant feature is a bit silly. You're supposed to plug in the power cord and HDMI cable to your TV so the Denon can walk you through steps such as plugging in the HDMI cable from your Blu-Ray player into the Blu-Ray HDMI input on the back of the Denon. Big help. Set-up assistant is more helpful when you're establishing a network connection and using the included microphone to adjust sound settings automatically.

Like other network AV receivers in this price range, This model has no wi-fi.

In general I am an audio enthusiast, but by no means am I an audiophile. The AVR-1613 exceeds my expectations. It's connected to 55" Samsung LED, driving a 5.1 system comprising Canton speakers and an Orb Audio sub. So far, inputs are TV Audio via optical, a PC via HDMI, and a Samsung Bluray via HDMI.

-Build: Solid unit, looks good, doesn't matter because it's hidden 95% of the time.

-Sound: Sound is great, but I'm dinging the unit by one star because the Audyssey auto-configuration didn't really nail it for my room. The room needs some treatment (mostly exposed wood), has slightly uncentered speaker placement, and the primary seating is not centered on the center channel, so I understand it might be difficult, but ultimately it didn't "just work", at least for speaker levels. EQ seems pretty good. In my usage so far I have never approached max volume in my 150sqft "man-cave". Listening has been split 50/50 beteween movies and games in surround mode, and music in multi-channel stereo. I like it.

-UI: The on-screen menu is spartan but gets the job done. My main critera here was that the on-screen menu exist, so all good here. The remote isn't too crazy, but I almost never use it because I can use my phone instead...

-Network features: I've got the receiver connected to my network via ethernet. I haven't used the network radio features because I have my PC connected as well. I discovered the AirPlay functionality accidentally when I sent photos over from my iPad. Cool, but not really going to use it. The best network feature is the ability to control the receiver from your smartphone...I got a 3d party Android app for this, which surfaces more functionality than I've found in my brief time with either the Denon Remote or the receiver UI. Being able to turn the unit off, change the volume, etc... from any room in my house is awesome.

Overall very satisfied.

I did a lot of research before settling on this Denon. I did look at the 1913 and a comparable Yamaha. The AVR 1613 was perfect for what I was looking for. So far I've owned this for a couple of months and the results are perfect. To clarify I was on a budget and knew what I wanted before hand. My configuration includes 2 Polk Audio Monitor 50 -2 way towers, a Polk subwoofer PSW10 and a center channel CS10. This combination is perfect and I had no interest in any surrounds, though the Denon does have the outputs to handle that. The sound is totally awsome whether its a movie or just music. And Amazon free shipping for all the above takes the cake.

In addition hooked the Denon up to the internet and Pandora etc via a Linksys WET610N wifi bridge. So really having just ethernet on the receiver is no big deal. The linksys links up to my apple airport . What plugs in the receiver via HDMI- the PS3, a Sony DVD player( now audio cd player with optical toslink input), Directv, appleTV, roku and the wii. The airplay feature on the denon is terrific. This opens a new dimension in listening to music. Airplay on the appleTV works as well, but then you will need to go via the Apple TV and the receiver before the music hits the speakers. I prefer the shortcut from idevice to receiver for music.

One note on airplay and airport though. If you use Mac address filtration on your airport/ or other router to filter which clients can hit your network, you will need to feed both the Linksys and the denon mac addresses into your router. I found this out after some digging around the linksys and denon IP interfaces. If you do not do this, the airplay icon on your iPhone or iPad will show the Denon receiver but when you try to stream music, it bounces back to the iOS device.
