    Denon has a great receiver

    Denon makes a great receiver. I previously had an onkyo from 2005, pre hdmi and needed an upgrade. I was waiting for HDMI-CEC, as a recent tv I purchased includes that as well. I didn't think my receiver would improve my sound system dramatically, and setting everything up sounded a little better. It wasn't until the calibration was done where everything sounded much better (and it sounded good to begin with). I have everything paired with a KEF R300, KEF r200c, and a KEF KUBE 10b. The new denon atmos virtualizer is great, although I can't tell if it limits the virtual surround sound, although I will upgrade to surround sound and not worry about this in the future.

    Well designed for 7.1 systems

    My only minor issue is that there is no simple means to avoid auto-triggering of power-up modes in accessory equipment (such as Blu-ray players) when switching input modes. If I want to switch to an input mode I might not want it to auto-power up --- if its already "on" --- as that would mean the receiver may send a 'power off" mode instead. This is resolvable by plugging other equipment into switchable power outlets (not on the receiver), or in some cases via those equipments user-interface options, but the Denon's automation is, at times, a bit too smart and too inflexible without by-passing its clever "smart" options as it interfaces with other equipment. But it still ranks as a 9 out of 10.

    I upgrade my receiver because I purchased a 4K television. I can't quite get the audio to work correctly. One major obstacle is my Samsung soundbar, whether connected to the TV or receiver the sound/volume changes as I change inputs. Then there a delay in audio even when I change channels on the Xfinity cable. You can get it to work correctly but if you change something during that 'moment' it throws the audio off.

    I recently upgraded my AVR from a 13 year old AVR to this Denon. I recalled how much I had to do to get the old unit set up with input assignments and other setup features to get it working just the way I wanted and was not looking forward to having to struggle through this setup again, as so much has changed in 13 years I thought. I friend recommended this Denon AVR for me to go with my new TV and Blu-ray and told me this AVR is one of the easiest to setup and is a quality unit. I only setup these things up once a decade or so, but this Denon setup menu proved to be very user friendly and I was able to go systematically through each setting and get everything set up just the way I like it. It is connected to my new Samsung 4K UHD TV and Sony Blu-ray and it produces great sound on my 5.1 surround setup. I even hooked up Zone 2 to my patio speakers and have been using the Denon HEOS application on my iPhone to control them with ease.

    Best value Atmos surround

    We didn’t know what we were missing until we got this receiver. Our movie watching becomes more enjoyable because of the sound this receiver can do. I like the number of options for the sound mode from stereo for radio listening to Atmos surround for Blu-ray action movies. I am not a sound expert but I love the sound of this receiver. I’m glad to find this from Best Buy. It is so cheap that I was able to get the surround speakers and accessories without spending a lot of money. A great satisfying project for a regular DIY guy like me.

    I've now used this for what, 2 plus years now.. It's a great receiver, still no complains.. I do wish the HEOS music deal offered actual connection to Amazon music or something, but oh well, it has bluetooth so super easy to play music through it if you aren't doing it via Youtube or something like that.

    I found this item in an open box deal and everything came with it. Works perfectly fine! My first ever Receiver and works awesome! I have a smart home thing going on at home and the fact that I can control this with my phone is super cool! I've only had it for a bit, haven't messed with it 100%. I'm also waiting on achieving higher performing tower speakers to get the most out of my surround experience. I can't wait to start incorporating alexa with it as well!

    Denon is the only receiver I would purchase. Has so many input and output plugs. Def worth the buy. It makes gaming and movie watching easy without the hassle of plugging and unplugging anytime we want to switch system or watch tv. Previously has a Denon for several years and wanted to upgrade due to having more systems in our house.

    Top choice budget AVR

    Excellent budget choice if you're looking to upgrade your old non-4K compatible AVR (like I did). I love that it is feature rich, directly streaming music through it is awesome, and PS4 and/or XBOX One has no issue controlling it via HDMI-ARC. The HEOS companion app works well enough on my android phone. LG TV also has no issue controlling it. All in all a great purchase!

    Got this Amp to replace my Yamaha, this receiver or should I say Denon's receivers have dedicated phono plug in for vinyl, was even able to set up my Nakamichi tape deck and was very, very impressed with the sound to my expectations. Set up was easy for calibration of speakers, other equipment( which identifies by name) wifi works great. This amp has many hookups for older equipment, hard to find these days. Thought I was not going to be able to use old Denon Turn Table again, which sounds better than my new one, (other brand), which has a phono or line hookup, perfect for my Yamaha. Out put signals for video is great. worth the money. Watts per channel is perfect for what I need, No distortion at Max, some buyers might want a more powerful out put of audio, but this is great for large living room, there are two hookups for sub woofer which I intend to use, full 7.2,

    I received my new Denon receiver on 8/29 late Saturday night. I hooked everything up to my home theater system, it took me about an hour! Everything worked perfectly, The sound system was beyond my expectations! Playing movies from Netflix with Dolby Atmos was amazing! I need to acknowledge Best Buy for their amazing customer service! They were able to assist me after Onkyo never responded to my emails concerning some issues that I was experiencing. I had purchased an Onkyo TX-NR696 couple months ago! This was my third receiver from Onkyo over the last decade.I’ll never purchase anything from Onkyo’s company ever again! They lost a faithful customer!

    I bought this to replace a Sony AVR that at less than 2 years old blew its video card twice. This receiver rocks. Easy to setup, plenty of hdmi inputs, wifi, bluetooth, and lots of power for your speakers. Use the Adussey program to configure your speakers then do your fine tuning afterwards. Denon has a fan for life with me and if you buy this receiver or another one of their models you will be a fan too.

    I love this receiver!

    This is my second Denon receiver, and this was a wonderful upgrade to my previous 1513. Favorite features are home network connectivity, and the ability to create a custom input with HDMI video and an alternate audio stream. This sounds trivial, but allows me to easily "turn down the sound" on the Saints game and listen to the FM radio broadcast. This was always a kludge, and is now a breeze. Then, when they go to halftime, I just press a button to switch back to TV audio. I'm also loving the second zone of speakers... I don't use surround, so I routed the rear speakers to my office. Now, I can have music or TV audio in the other room, without disturbing those in the living room. The HEOS functionality is excellent. My Mac, iPad, and Android devices can all stream directly to the 9950. Best home audio purchase I've made in a while.

    I'm very pleased with the features and performance of this A/V receiver replacing an older receiver. Good sound quality and seamless control for HDMI, game consoles and internet music with Spotify Connect. The programmatic sound setup and balancing for room acoustics works well to produce realistic sound separation.
