This Receiver takes some time to set up correctly. We use it primarily for our home theater. The included microphone and very clear on screen (TV monitor) instructions does take a bit longer than expected to set up and play, but the results for us are amazing. We have Bose front, rear and center speakers and Polk Audio SW that sounded fine. Once all connected and calibrated, we put on a blue ray DVD and pressed play; those speakers sounded the way that the Bose engineers intended them to sound. We are amazed at the difference in clarity, presence and performance of the speakers that gave us the impression that we had new speakers!
The remote is a wee bit less intuitive than the previous Sony receiver's was, but once you understand how the system functions it is actually more user friendly by replacing the need for the Bravia remote, the Blu-Ray remote and even the cable company DVR remote (for the most part). I removed the Denon receiver four feet in order to fit it into our Ethan Allen home theater furniture and I fear that the receiver cannot cool efficiently but only time will tell. (I had no other choice due to the size of the receiver and the available pigeon holes.
The volume indicator is odd in that at the lowest setting, the numbers are negative and as you increase the volume the negative numbers increase to positive. Not sure why it was necessary to change from "0" to larger increments to indicate volume but there you are. I think that we have only uncovered the surface with this receiver and that it is capable of giving us more surprising performance once we learn more, but the included paperwork is quite limited and the on-line owners manual is not really targeted to a regular (read as non audiophile) consumer.
A definite plus is the front USB connection that allows us to play our MP3 music and also use the remote control to advance or go back. The con to this is the music plays alphabetically by artist only. I have yet to discover how to play the music on random setting using our Sandisk MP3 players. Perhaps Denon thinks everyone has an Apple product (presuming that I-products will play on random mode).
In the past 25 years, I have used (and still have) an Onkyo receiver, two Sony receivers and now this Denon. Perhaps the technology has improved significantly in that long time span but this is by far the most versatile and the best sounding equipment I have yet to own.
Incidentally I am a low end consumer not wishing to pay more than $250 for a receiver.
this unit is excellent. i have gone through sony es and yamaha 5.1 receivers and i can confidently say this denon unit is, at least, as good as any of them. speaker hook-up was easy. audio/video performance is much better than the denon dvr 1312 5.1 that i am now keeping as a back-up unit. this could be my last receiver purchase. with a 3d capability and four hdmi inputs, this unit was built with foresight. this unit seems to be completely compatible with my sony xbr 55 and sony bdp s1000es. it is of course a perfect companion for my denon v310 professional 720p player.
Sounded good for first 30 days then HDMI video switching system died. Took vendor 2 weeks to offer me repair of 6 to 8 weeks delay or refund. What do you think I did. Also no Phono Input or Component Video Input. My first Denon Surround Sound unit lasted over 20 years and it had a look and feel to it. This unit has nothing going for it. I also believe the quality has changed. Denon used to be sold in high end audio stores now it's sold at the big box stores and E-Bay. Were is Lafayette Radio when you need them. It's now discontinued and hopefully the next generation piece is better.
