After spending weeks of researching A/V receivers, I chose the AVR-590 to replace my old, non-HDMI Sony receiver. I had a 5.1 setup and didn't need anything fancy, but I didn't want something mediocre either. On paper, this model had all the features I needed (HDMI switching and automatic speaker setup) for a very reasonable price.This is my first Denon receiver, and I have been using for over a month.Setup - I consider myself technically inclined, so when I read the manual for the first time...

Well, I finally decided to upgrade my great-sounding but HDMI-less Marantz receiver to something that would play nice with my PS3 and Wii and upconverting Oppo player. I wanted this, but I did not have a fortune to spend.I checked out the 'budget' receivers from Yamaha, Harman/Kardon, Onkyo, Pioneer, and even refurbished Marantz. I did weeks of research; comparing spec sheets repeatedly, always price shopping, comparing each one's auto speaker setup, and build quality(I was spoiled by the Marant...

The only thing budget about this receiver is its price. There are more than enough inputs for me(and well more than enough settings than I will ever use). This receiver makes use of the latest encodings found on blurays(uncompressed FTW).I have paired mine with 2X cerwin-vega re30s, 2x sony ssf-6000s, a celestion 35c, and a bic America f12. (Ill be replacing the center soon as he is the low man on the totem pole)The remote is less complicated than the other higher end Denons, making it more fun...

Combining Denon's high performance AVR-590 A/V receiver with Boston Acoustics' MCS 90 5.1 speaker system, the DHT-590BA home theater system features carefully matched components to provide thrilling surround sound for music and movies.HDMI cables makes this a breeze to set up. yes one must look at the owners manual once or twice but other then that no tech support needed, feels like i am in the newest movie theaters with hi-tech equipment when watching a blu-ray and listing to music. For the mon...

This is a fine receiver but is not as intuitive as it could be. Definitely not for those who are not pretty tech saavy.I ran into a major lip synch problem when I connected my Samsung LCD HDTV to this unit.The problem was even worse when the lip synch feature on the receiver was on. Turning off the lip synch feature made it less bad... go figure. When I hooked the satellite directly to the TV, no lip synch problem at all. So the root of the problem is definitely with the receiver. The TV is...

Takes a while to get oriented w/ it. Good sound and features, but requires referring to the manual a lot, and maybe a few calls to Denon support. (They were pretty helpful.) I like the on-screen display w/ hdmi cable. The auto setup w/ mic is convenient and does a decent job of making initial sound settings. Good connections on the back for speaker wires, and enough inputs for me.Audyssey Dynamic Volume feature doesn't work all that well. I still have to turn down the volume during commerc...

Hooked up easily, excellent sound from 5 speakers + 1 sub woofer. I had no idea of the complexity of formats there are for surround sound systems, and bought a book (Practical Home Theater), to explain much of what I was supposed to know already. Book very helpful. Audessy EQ very easy to set up and balanced the speakers better than I could have. The effect this receiver has on blu ray movies is amazing--adds as much realism as blu ray did to plain DVDs.

This is a truly outstanding A/V and pure-music receiver, chosen by me after copious research and critical reviews of reports about many comparable products. The AVR590 does more for my sonic entertainment than I could ever have dreamed, a real mind-blower that replaces a very capable Teac 5.1 Dolby/DTS receiver that became buggy after many years of service. The one thing I'd fault Denon for is the occasional impenetrability of the verbiage in its owner's manual. But there's plain-language help a...

I paired this receiver with a set of Energy Take Classic speakers and it sounds way better than the Sony Home Theater in a Box i was using. WIth the HTIB, i could barely hear the surround effects, but now it sounds like i'm in a theater in the small room i have this set up in. I leave the Dynamic Volume off for movies to get the full effect.I got this to pair with a 37 inch 720p LCD TV so i didn't want upscaling, but if you have a 1080p TV, you may want to go up a level or two in the Denon line ...

I switched AV components after a recent purchase of a new plasma. I wanted everything integrated through HDMI. With this Denon receiver I was able to achieve this with ease. Nice features, easy to set up, excellent sound quality. This receiver is highly recommended and at a great price through Amazon.
