With six HDMI inputs, the AVR-1912 allows you to route multiple high-definition devices--like game consoles and Blu-ray players--to your TV. It also allows you to connect all of your devices to your TV with a single HDMI cable, reducing cable clutter.
Vivid 3D Visuals with HDMI v1.4a
The AVR-1912 comes equipped with HDMI v1.4a, allowing you to make the most of several premium video features:
When connected to a network, the AVR-1912 lets you listen to Internet radio, play audio files, and display images via an Ethernet connection. The receiver also supports AirPlay, which allows you to stream music wirelessly from an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or iTunes. Or, connect an iPhone/iPod/iPad directly to the receiver with a USB cable.
With the Denon Remote App installed on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, you can perform basic operations, like turning the AVR-1912's power on or off, adjusting the volume, and switching sources.
For serious audio enthusiasts, FLAC HD decoding delivers uncompressed playback of your high-definition music files. A compressed audio restorer guarantees that playback of lower resolution audio files is crisp and clear.
The AVR-1912 is compatible with Windows 7 audio and photo streaming, as well as giving you convenient web control. This receiver provides online support for Pandora, Flickr, Napster, and Rhapsody, allowing you to enjoy a wide variety of online digital content at any time.

The front panel is smartly organized, featuring clearly labeled buttons and onboard controls for volume and source. In addition, its on-screen display provides quick information about your system's settings.

Top Customer Reviews
1) Beautiful sound! Dolby ProLogic IIz; 7 discrete amps!
2) 6 HDMI ports
3) 2 year warranty
3) Ease of setup; Audyssey automatic calibration of speakers with included microphone
4) "Airplay" for use with Apple products--this is very cool.
5) No need to buy expensive Wifi adapater. This will use any wireless bridge to allow you to connect to internet (I bought one for $50).
6) Pandora, Rhapsody, and Napster!
7) Attractive looking with rounded corners and matte black finish
8) On-screen menus and volume control (Pioneer does not have this feature)
9) USB port on front of receiver for Iphone or Ipod connection (using the Apple USB cord)
1) Difficult to use remote control (note: You have to press the AMP button on the remote first THEN Menu button before you can access the Setup Wizard). Confusing instructions on setting up remote to work with other devices. I still cannot get the "Quick Select" buttons to work, and will have to contact technical support for advice. Will update this post with instructions when/if I obtain them.
2) No manual! Instead they give you a CD with PDF of the manual. I found this annoying since my PC is in a different room than the receiver and going back and forth to follow step-by-steps was frustrating. You can print pages out of course, but a hard copy of the manual would have been my preference. On the up side...Read more ›
That said, the equally priced competitor that I considered, a Pioneer rated its peer by CNET, dropped by $200 at Amazon three weeks after I bought the Denon, and I strongly considered going through the hassle of a return but didn't. And why not? Because the set-up of this product was mind-bogglingly confusing and I didn't expect the Pioneer's set-up to be any easier, so once was more than enough.
Some of the set-up was as simple as 1-2-3; pinging the surround-sound speakers was straightforward and intuitive, for example. But other aspects of the set-up left me wondering which alternative from the on-screen choices or the pdf user's manual to select. When I followed the guidance of the on-screen choices that Denon highlighted as the recommended setting in several instances, the amplifier was unable to produce sound from my HDTV; I was only able to resolve this through trial and error, because the user's manual is pathetically disorganized and unhelpful.
Here's what you can expect in the 129-page manual, starting with a seemingly simple, 1-page Setup Wizard.Read more ›
SUMMARY: While most reviewers look at the checkoff list of features, I'm going to tell you the SOUND QUALITY: Onkyo is not as clear and crisp or can hit high notes, nor is the movie dialog consistent like the Denon, period.
First, I got the Denon 1712 but then I returned it for the Denon 1912 because I wanted the iPod jack and networking so I can stream music from my PC/internet. I have the Denon hooked up to my 5-year old Mirage Nanostat speakers and 10-year old Onkyo Subwoofer (150watt 10 inch speaker in a wood enclosure).
- Wow! Clearer and louder dialog when watching movies and I don't have to continually adjust the volume button like the Onkyo.
- Bass rattles things hanging on my wall that my old Onkyo could not and this is not just because of loudness but how good the crossover is to the subwoofer to deliver the lows.
- 6 HDMI inputs
- runs warm but not hot like the Onkyo which means there's less fear of a fire when others in the household forget to turn it off
- I can control my iPod with the Denon remote
- My room doesn't get as hot because the Denon is warm while the Onkyo is soo HOT that you could fry an egg on it.
- "Discrete circuit of each channel" means I can REALLY tell the difference when I adjust each speaker compared to my old Onkyo.Read more ›
