Top Customer Reviews
The AVR391 I received had the same lockup issues that have been described by others (after some random time, it would lock up requiring a unplug of the cord), in contacting Denon support they went through some troubleshooting steps and the issue did not disappear.
So, they recommended shipping the unit for a repair center for a firmware upgrade that was supposed to fix the issue (estimed at 10 days for the fix to be done). The first bad experience is that you need to deal with the repair folks directly (Denon does really proxy much), and those were not very good at customer services. 2 weeks after the receiver was sent (took 1 day to arrive there), the status was that the repair center did not have a cable required to do the firmware upgrade (kinda of odd for denon to not know this and waste time and money having me send it there).
So, Denon customer service said they would send the receiver to another repair center and in 2 weeks I'd get it back... 2 weeks later I call them, and they ask me to call the new repair center, which I did but they had not received the item. In checking back with Denon, it was discovered that the first repair center had not sent the item yet (thats about 5 weeks since I sent the item in for repair).
Anyways, the supervisor of the customer service suggested he would try sending a new unit to me because of the troubles, 2 days later I called about it to find out the request was denied and the original plan to send the receiver to a new repair center was in motion. Well, I requested the receiver be sent back to me (and it is now on its way to me, so it still had not left the first repair center - anyways, I wonder how long it will take to get it back considering how fast this first repair center turn around).
I'm glad amazon will receive it back (I prob with some restocking fee, but still at this point not only this item, but my old denon gear is tasting pretty sour). I will buy a replacement (guaranteed to be of a different brand) while returning this item.
Be warned, if you dont receive a good working item, dealing with their repair center can be a frustating experience (to say the least).
I was intially thinking this was going to be an ok av reciever. To all those who say it is just ok, I beg to differ, if you match this with high quality components, you will find a great sound quality that is stunning for the price.
The value represented with this avr is stupendous when you consider it is the exact same power supply and amp as the 591/1611, the only difference is the dacs. I have a 591 and can tell no difference. This reciever is for hdmi sources, upconverting is stupid to me, so no real issues there. Not many analog sources either, but enough, two digital sources, again for me is enough. No freezing up for me, The sound quality is outstanding for the money. My two year old ONKYO 605 sounds like garbage next to this. I love the HIDEF codecs, and get them to comeup with no issues dts and Dolby Tru. The onkyo has become a headphone amp and the old denon is in the bedroom, and 591 went back to magnolia.
If you need analog and upconverting (which is like lying to yourself) look elsewhere. I
personally think all the inputs add crosstalk and interference.
If you have mainly hdmi and digital sources, look no further, this is a great sounding reciever, not a feature laden one, but one that represents the best value sound quotient on the market.
