Long story short: I sent the Denon back. My audio system uses the larger Polk Audio bookshelf speakers with the 8" woofers, and this is supported by a Yamaha YST-SW216 powered subwoofer. The Denon DRA297 simply does NOT have the punch, the presence, the clarity or the warmth of either the Teac or of the Pioneer SX-780 that I had been using previously.
Additionally, the small lettering for the controls is very hard to read, there's no optical input provided for a CD player, and there is only (1) subwoofer output jack.
I'm saying "The emperor's not wearing any clothes" ... I honestly think you could buy any manufacturers 100-dollar unit and have it sound at least as good as the Denon DRA-297!
I have to admit that I am a female who is "electronically challenged", so choosing a receiver as a surprise gift for my husband was a bit frightening. I did some research and shopped on various websites before I found this receiver. After reading about it and the reviews, I decided to give this one a try. I had to make a few calls to the seller before I received it, made contact with no problem, and was treated respectfully. My husband was thrilled with the receiver and immediately installed it and connected all other electronic "gizmos" to it. He did mention that there are features on it that he will probably not use, but in my opinion it's better to have too many, than too little.
Even though this receiver is refurbished, you would never know it. This is a great receiver at a really great price. Thanks!
