Top Customer Reviews
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.
- On-screen menus and volume control make it easier to use
- Networking: Streaming music from my Windows 7 pc is awesome! I don't have to stream through my Sony PS3 and XBOX 360 anymore which added electricity and heat to the room.
- Networking: Pandora free music via internet is awesome!
- Networking: I can control it remotely by opening Internet Explorer and entering its IP address. So, I can use my Android Tablet at the pool and control my receiver! Or, I can control it from any computer in the house!
- Networking: Internet radio is sooo cool that I can listen to radio music from other cities in the U.S. and around the world!
- Networking: I was able to update the firmware software.
- Few analog inputs: 1 component, 1 S-Video, 2 RCA.
- No Bluetooth input (most receivers don't have it yet) so I can stream music from my smartphone.
- Networking is wired only. However, this was easily solved by buying the Netgear WNCE2001-100NAS wireless adapter for $49 which enabled the Denon to wireless connect to my wifi network.
- Networking: Although I can control the receiver by entering its IP address into my web browser, the receiver's response to my input is slow; maybe Denon can send an firmware update to speed it up in the future.
6/4/2012 update: Yes! Denon sent out a 2nd firmware update and when I changed from Dynamic IP to Static IP, it's way faster responding to my input from Internet Explorer or my tablet's web browser, although still not as fast as using the remote.

- Best value vs. quality of product and set of features
- Easy to setup and use within 15 minutes
- Excellent sound reproduction and clean channel separation, especially when listening to 5.1 and 7.1 surround
- Internet enabled - allows for updating firmware quickly and for listening to internet radio
- Very light for a 860 Watt receiver
- Surround sound calibration microphone is included for conducting initial setup of your surround sound speaker system
- Only has one HDMI main output (two main output HDMI ports are becoming the standard)
- For internet firmware update to work properly, I had to manually set my router's MTU value to 1460. This is apparently an issue with the Japanese firmware update servers being incompatible with the default 1500 MTU settings that most routers are set to by default.
- Can only update firmware via internet connectivity - no ability to flash the firmware using a USB stick
- Built-in equalizer is not as good as the higher end Denon models, but is good enough for my needs
- No 7.2 capability, but I knew this when I bought this receiver
BOTTOMLINE: This is a great receiver for a great price. If you can, I highly recommend you trying to get this 'open box' like-new condition like I did. Saved me $150!
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...no bulky manual to file away, and I have the CD smartly stored away and a saved PDF of the manual on my computer for future reference.
3) Front USB port is not compatible with the IPad. (Airplay does, however, work with Ipad)
The unit does not seem to run hot, and from what I have read, Denon receivers enjoy a long and stable life. Based on what I have experienced so far, I highly recommend this unit over the Onkyo TX NR609 and even the Pioneer VSX-1021-K, which I also tried. I could not tell the difference in sound between the Denon and Pioneer, but the Pioneer does not have on-screen menus or volume, which I found very annoying. Pioneer also wants an outrageous $150 for their Wifi adapter. Both the Pioneer and Denon sound better than the Onkyo.
