great, but!
 
works great, plenty of plug-ins, easy set up, but you get 2 hdmi ins 1 out. hdmis' work great one cable for sound and video but the denon avr588 doesn't accept sound through the hdmi cable.(it's noted in the manual) why not? i don't understand. so you go with optical or coaxial for audio. it works but extra cables.

Its a good receiver...
 
Hi Amazon users.I purchased this receiver at Circuit City in my neighborhood after substantial online research. I was looking for an inexpensive 5.1 receiver and the alternatives explored included the Yamaha 361, Yamaha 363, Onkyo 505, Onkyo 506, and Harmon Kardon 147. The receiver i had decided to buy (Onkyo 505) had been discontinued and was supposed to be on sale at Circuit City, but they did not have them in stock. I had purchased B&W CM1 bookshelf speakers (HIGHLY RECOMMEND) to...

Unreliable
 
Good sound quality, but it has been in for repairs four times. Today, I brought it in for the fourth time and another person was bringing the same model in for repairs. Unfortunately, it is out of warranty. If it is too expensive to fix, I'll cut my losses and buy another brand.The interface is very difficult. I'm a relatively technically adept person (I've spent a lot of time in recording studios and I have a degree in Physics) and it took me six weeks to find the bass and treble!

****DO NOT BUY THIS RECEIVER****
 
Denon admits that this AVR overheats and shuts down. Mine did that frequently. I have it out in the open with air flowing from all sides. Still, it continuously shut down and now, it's DEAD.*****DO NOT BUY A DENON*****

No HDMI Audio - makes no sense
 
Was excited , got this for a good price with the Boston Acoustics speaker system. Was very frustrated that I could not get the HDMI Audio to work on my DVD player. Bought a Blue Ray to take full advantage of the Digital experience also , even went out and bought the more expensive HDMI cables thinking it was a cable problem. Manual says right in the DVD setup area that HDMI is for both Audio and Video combined (page 11). On top of it, can't really use the Blue Ray digital as it has no Coax outpu...

Decent Receiver
 
This is an excellent receiver in terms of sound quality. The only problem, as everyone else has already noted is that it does not receive HDMI audio. It took me a little while to figure this out. Your only options if you want digital audio are optial or coaxial. My particular unit came paired with Boston Acoustic MCS 130 speaker setup. These two together sound exceptional. I have yet to test the unit using my Blu Ray player as I did not anticipate needing an optical audio cable (the only n...

Very poor reliability
 
Sounds great, but has broken down (requiring shipping off at my expense for warranty repair) twice in 9 months. That kind of reliability is simply unacceptable.

Denon AVR 588, pretty good for the $$$
 
I bought this Reciever a little over a year ago, and as many here have noted, mine went belly up shortly after I purchased it. I was lucky and the regional repair location is in our town. They fixed it, and I put it right back in the cabinet it was in, and have not had a single issue with it since. I have it powering a 5.1 system with Polk audio inwall speakers and a 10" sub. I also have it set up to sent audio through the optical from a home theater computer, and it works great for that too. Th...

Very good reciever !
 
I purchased this reciever to power my surround sound for my t.v. It also has a second zone that i use for my outdoor speakers. This is a very well made reciever and it has enough power to put out good quality sound, the only downfall is that it should have separate volume features to raise and lower each speaker individually. For example the center speaker should have a volume control so you can hear the voices if your watching a movie without hearing other noise. Overall im very pleased with my...
