I have just ordered a whole new stereo from Crutchfield and I expect it to be a lifetime investment that I can add on to. My receiver choices were limited to two channel stereo, since I use this system almost exclusively for music. From years of experience and listening to literally hundreds of music systems, I only considered Denon, Marantz, and Onkyo. After countless hours of research, and with the help of Crutchfield representative Bill (digging for answers of dozens of hard questions), I ...

Decent Receiver...
 
First, I have to say that I've owned and listened to alot of different Denon Receivers and Intergrated Amps. I'm kind of comparing this Receiver to the others as far as this review goes. The Tuner on this model is one of the best tuners I've ever listened to, the music is very clear and well defined, and the sensetivity is pretty good aswell. It looks like Denon is cutting alot of corners on there quality features like THD levels, they are a little higher than their Receivers from a few years ba...

I bought this to power 6 pairs of speakers on my house boat and found that using just one of the two channels provides enough power for all twelve speakers. My installation guy was impressed with receiver and its features.

didnt last
 
Bought home stereo package from dealer who suggested Denon. The 2year warranty expired in March and the unit quit working in April. It would power on then just turn its self right back off. We probably used the whole house stereo once a month for parties otherwise the unit was off. Hard to believe this thing would not last forever even much just 2 years with limited use. We were told a repair would be 450. What the heck could cost 450 to fix? Yuck!

I was looking for a stereo receiver or home theater system, compatable with Bose 901 Series VI active equilizer. This was not easy. I basically just want to use this receiver for playing music in my home. The Harman Kardon HK 3490 met my criteria and was on sale.

DELIGHTED
 
I combined this receiver with Polk TSi400 speakers, which are far from top of the line, and a Polk 8-inch woofer (free with the speakers), and it brings my classical CDs to life. The sound was accurate, enveloping and frankly moving. At high-volume I got goosebumps. This receiver allows me to notice all sorts of things: intonation issues in the orchestra, brass players breathing, articulation subtleties, and even page turning on stage. Its the next best thing to going to a live concert. I h...

Preformance as expected from Denon
 
I purchased this receiver to replace a twenty one year old Denon receiver that was damaged in an electrical storm. The DRA-697CI was easy to hook up and sounded GREAT! I just hope it is as well built as my old receiver which was made in Japan. (The DRA-697CI is made in China) I think you must go to the top of the line units to get a unit made in Japan. I haven't quite mastered the remote as far as programing it to control my other componets but I'm working on it! You will not be disapointed wit...
