    I previously had an Onkyo receiver that came with a speaker bundle. It was a basic, entry level receiver like this Denon one, but was now 9 years old. It was working as it should. I noticed a problem as I started to use services like Netflix and HBO Now. I would have to turn the receiver way up to hear, so high (near max) that it would cause the receiver to trip. I was running through a Roku through the TV and using the optical audio out from the TV to run to the receiver. The DD+ signal could not be passed through the tv, so the tv was converting it to a weaker signal. That was causing me to have to turn it up to compensate. Changing the Netflix output to stereo didn't seem to help much, and even then I wouldn't be able to make use of my surround sound setup. Newer TVs shouldn't have this problem, but this one is 6 years old. There was no other way to get video to the tv and audio to the receiver (with surround sound) since my Onkyo receiver only had HDMI pass through capability. It couldn't extract audio from the HDMI input, again newer ones do this. So if anyone has such a problem, this Denon receiver does the trick. I run the Roku directly into the receiver and run HDMI out to the TV. It extracts audio (all normal surround formats you might have these days (DD, DD+, DTS) from inputs and sends the signal then out to the TV. I considered the newest Onkyo receiver at this price point, but decided against because of the horrible on unit display which was ugly and almost illegible. The Denon has a clear on unit display and good aesthetics. I enjoy the on screen display feature, which I didn't have before but I am sure is standard on receivers now. My preexisting Onkyo 6 ohm speakers and sub sound great with this system. Surround setup was easy. The only thing I would change is the volume control. This has been mentioned previously I think. When using the remote, it is very difficult to change the volume efficiently. It changes the volume too slow or way too fast. This is really just an annoyance, not a major problem. I highly recommend for an entry level receiver. I hope this helps anyone in the same boat as I had to do a bit of research to figure out my problem.

    Horrible receiver

    If I could give this negative stars I would. I’ve installed multiple home receivers, vehicle receiver, ceiling speakers, TVs, taken apart desktop computers, etc. This is BY FAR the most useless piece of junk I’ve ever owned. I purchased a 4K tv and had to change out my receiver to match. I had an old Onkyo receiver which was amazing. The interface on this Dennon is terrible. It’s so complicated, even after reading the directions 10 times it’s still complicated. Yes it turns on, and I can watch and hear the tv, but can’t use any of the extra HDMI ports rendering it pretty much useless. The receiver sits inside my media cabinet under my stair case, and everything is ran through the walls and ceilings going behind the tv above the fireplace. Not sure where this has so many good reviews unless the manufacturer changed something after all of them were created. Good thing I’m an elite member, already purchased another receiver (Yamaha) and returning this one today! PS, I never write reviews, but hopefully this will be helpful to others as to not go through the trouble I did up front.

    Nice Receiver for the cost. ARC issue with SONY TV

    Was a nice receiver for the cost. Sounded good, Worked easily. Nice Automatic Setup process although the graphics are low resolution. Setup displays on the TV. You have to make sure the TV is on when starting the Setup. I returned it because I never could get it to switch inputs to get return audio from aSony x900e TV when using the TV native Streaming APPS. I had to switch inputs on the Receiver to "TV Audio" using the Receiver remote. HDMI CEC (Bravia Sync on Sony TV's) should handle that. This made a one remote solution impossible without using the Harmony. I wanted to try to do this using ONLY the TV remote as you are supposed to be able to do. Returned it and purchased the Denon 1400H on sale for about $100.00 more. Works perfectly.. Switching to an APP on the Sony x900e such as AMAZON OR NETFLIX on the TV switches the input on the Receiver to TV Audio and you can hear the App Audio, and control the volume. nice... Switch back to "TV" on the Sony remote and you can now hear the Audio coming into the Receiver form my Uverse STB. IF you have a different brand TV apparently this is not an issue. this is what I learned in the Sony Support forums.. I'd use this if I had and LG or a Samsung.

    I got a new 4K TV, so I decided to update my entire setup. I wanted 5 hdmi ports on my receiver, and this was a good option for the money. One of the negative points on it, is that I can't rename the hdmi ports, something that I could do in the Yamaha receiver that this one replaced. That is not a reason to loose a star, the missing star is for the bad quality of customer support received by Denon.I was trying to enable HDR for Apple TV though the receiver, after I was able to do so when connecting my Sony TV directly to the Apple TV. Denon's response was that "Apple created something so new that none of the Receiver manufacturers could catch up". Of course this was a cheap and lazy response. I ended up relying on Sony's support and knowledge base: there I was able to find out how to fix the problem for the Denon receiver. Over all a good receiver for the price, but be prepare to spend some time to get all the functions to work.

    Best piece of audio equipment I've purchased

    I walked into my local Best Buy store looking for an Onkyo that was on sale. They were sold out so I bought this one on a whim. This receiver is good for both novice and experienced audiophiles. It was about four pounds lighter than the Pioneer it replaced. The on screen menu is excellent and easy to operate. The initial setup process is well designed and executed. The blue tooth capability is great at this price point. Also, you can pair the two optical inputs to any of the HDMI ports. In settings make sure you switch Input to digital instead of Auto or HDMI. This receiver woke up a 30 year old pair of speakers I had. Clean, dynamic sound no matter the track. The only drawback to this unit is that it has spring clips instead of banana plug connectors. If I ever need another receiver I'm going back to Denon.

    In short: there is probably nothing better on the market for the price. This is inherently a smart receiver and will decode sound almost immediately to determine the correct settings when listening and watching different media. I use mine connected to an LG 4K TV, Xbox One S, and use the entire Polk T-Series of speakers connected in full 5.1. I run the Xbox through the receiver first so that there is no sound quality lost by coding from the TV. The listening experience from this receiver is phenomenal for me. I primarily watch action movies and listen to Spotify through the Xbox. The ability of the Xbox to play 4K really helps this receiver shine as well; it will automatically code and set itself to the highest level of sound that the movie will play in. This is my first A/V receiver and I have been pleasantly surprised by it. Even from first plugging it in, setting it up and control the different levels is very intuitive. The addition of Bluetooth connectivity adds a unique touch to be able to control the device from a smartphone. The controller app also houses a user manual for troubleshooting.

    Flexible and Sounds Great

    We connected the AVR to existing Samsung TV, Verizon Fios Box, DVD/VCR box, CD Player, 3 speakers and subwoofer, and more. Great sound all around. The pass-thru option for when the box is off works great - meaning we get sound/video on the TV even with the AVR box is off. Devices connected directly to TV also playback thru AVR as desired. Bluetooth for playing our Spotify songs works great (though we wish it would remember more than one paired device for faster connecting). Auto setup for speakers was spot-on. Comes with FM/AM antennas, which worked well, but navigating directly to favorite stations is a bit cumbersome. Remote works great. Setup options are very flexible and intuitive, and online manual is very detailed. Denon customer service is outstanding. Had a question about settings, called-in, and immediately had a techie that completely understood and solved the problem.

    The unit was on sale and feature wise compared very favorably with other similar and higher end products. Installed, the system worked pretty well. Controls seemed easy enough for those familiar with systems and the auto balancing process seemed OK. The unit is tall. Good for heat dispersal but be careful if you don’t have much vertical shelf space. No cabling other than cheap FM and AM antennae is included, so be sure you have your own speaker cabling and input line from your connected devices. Worst issue was sound volume. Set up to a Bose speaker system (passive subwoofer) and had to turn sound up to the 60’s (!!!) to be heard! Maybe it was the subwoofer pass through but was never able to resolve this. It was a bargain system that met most needs.
