Best low-end receiver I've ever owned
 
If this receiver was over $700, I would have given it 4 stars because it's only weakness is that it wouldn't have enough power to blast-out a large room -- but I have it in a small home-theater so it's no problem and 5 stars for my needs. I've owned a Pioneer, Sony, Onkyo and now a Denon low-end receiver. The Pioneer I had was back in college, but I remember it favorably. The Sony had plenty of oomph, not much acuracy and died after 6 or 7 years. The Onkyo at 75 watts is OK now that I have i...

Same as more expensive Denon AVR-1912 but without internet.
 
I first tried the Denon AVR-1912. I did not like the AVR-1912's internet features (Airplay etc.). However, I did like the way it sounded. So, I exchanged for a Denon AVR-1712 when they started shipping. It is cheaper than an AVR-1912 but has identical audio specs. When I got it, I compared 2 different speaker setups; 7.1 front-height vs. bi-amp front speakers with 5.1 surround. In my opinion, I got much better overall sound with the bi-amp setup on my floor-standing front speakers (5.1) tha...

Great receiver, great features, great price.
 
I purchased this receiver after my old Yamaha finally died and all I can say is wow! I was willing to spend up to $1.2k for a receiver but found this one on sale even cheaper that the $399 list price (which it is worth every penny of that) and had to jump on it. And I'm glad I did. This reasonably priced receiver handles the 5 HDMI inputs that I have and makes my home theatre room super simple to use (my wife is happy about that) while making it sound fantastic. Most of my viewing is of media ...

Great Receiver for the Price
 
This is not a receiver that we use for our theater but rather one that we use for our living room. I purchased this receiver to add surround sound to our living room television so that we could watch the occasional blue ray, play video games with surround sound, watch sports, or movies on TV. It was a breeze to set up with the first time set up wizard, and the Audyssey MultiEQ is superb. Great little receiver with some nice options for the price.

Works great but...
 
Pros: Loaded with lots of features and it processes sound real great. Even my old box home theater speakers sounded much better when hooked to this thing. I like especially the ability to bi-amp. I have hooked my Klipsch VF-36's tower tweeters to the 'surround back' and the woofers to the 'front', and the sound quality is noticeably improved [though admittedly this is not scientific - could be all in my head]. I also got it on a special from Vann's at 25% off the going price of four Benjamins, s...

No 1080p up-conversion!
 
Sound is great, but what a pain getting there...I set up a man-cave in a recently finished attic. I have a professionally installed home theater system in my living room, and wanted a mid-range system for the cave. I had always heard about Denon's set up with a microphone. You place the mic in the middle of the room and the receiver sets up all the speakers automatically. Since my space is oddly shaped I thought this was a must. That part of the set up was fairly easy, but getti...

Frustrating set-up, poorly designed remote, good sound
 
This unit replaces my Denon AVR-391 which was damaged in our recent power outage and the subsequent surges. So I am familiar with Denon's set-up process, which I consider overly complicated and not at all intuitive. The unit is advertised as coming with a set-up CD. I slipped the CD into the DVD player (with the DVD player and the TV connected by HDMI), pressed "enter" on the remote ("start" on screen) - and nothing happened. I expected interactivity, but it appears to me that the set...

Useless manual and onscreen guide.
 
I have read about how bad the PDF manual and on screen guide is, but didn't believe it. I love my past Denon products.The information available for the 1712 is useless. It has very generic instructions, and searching it is a pain. I will likely be leaving Denon after this. I have yet to get my TV to be controlled by the receiver remote.

I "upgraded" from my Onkyo receiver because I needed the HDMI convenience, and I did a fair amount of research, but after two months, I am ready to give away my Denon AVR-1712. I hate it! I don't know if the d*** things sounds good or not. It will not power my Klipsch 15" sub woofer except at very high volumes. The sound settings are confusing and unclear. I still do not know which is the setting for 5.1 surround. Everything about it is confusing to a novice like me and after two months, I've ha...

Awesome receiver, awesome price!
 
I recently purchased a mid-range set of Polk Audio Monitor Series 2 fronts, surrounds, and a PSW 505 sub. I'm more or less a "budget" audiophile and love to hear and appreciate lossless audio, and hi-fidelity lossless audio formats coupled with my movies as well. Wanting a basic receiver without all the bells and whistles of networking (I have a WD Live TV for that..works great!), I first purchsed a Yamaha RX-V371 and connected everything up. I was impressed with the sound overall but found m...
