Upsamples comp. video but does not send the sound through HDMI
 
Why oh why does digital multimedia need to be so damned complicated?My HDTV has a built in speaker bank that I use a) when I don't want to turn on the surround sound stereo system and b) as an ad hoc center channel for my 2.1 system. The monitor part of my TV only has HDMI input. The Denon AVR-887 will take composite, component, S-video and output them through HDMI, but will not pass digital sound through the same HDMI output, unless it was HDMI to begin with. So if I am using an ...

amp leaves much to desire / Customer service nightmare
 
This A/V receiver arrived with a remote control that does not work. The auto set-up works OK but it thought I had large front speakers when there small, so it configure the sub-woofer too light. When playing DVDs with my new OPPO up-converting DVD player it would loose the center channel. I would have to go into set-up to get the center channel back, (bear in mind all of this with no working remote). When trying to get the remote replaced under warranty you can forget about being able to speak t...

Not very good
 
After my H&K of two years died, I decided to try Denon. I have an LCD that supports 480p, 720p, 1080i on HDMI. Well this lovely receiver only sends the OSD at 480i. So it won't upconvert that, so I have to use S-VIDEO to get it to work (Samsung LCD supports 480i on S-Video). Also, you can't get a digital input to work on the Multi Room output. There is no secondary remote for multi room, and I still can't figure out how to adjust it from the receiver. Sound quality is also just OK.

Compatibility W/Samsung DLP
 
Product has very nice audio/video qualities when compatibility is not a problem. I exchanged 3 receivers at the recommendation of Denon tech support. Last time I simply returned it. Denon has told me that Samsung DLP and Panasonic Plasma TV's have repeatedly had compatibility problems with Denon products when using the HDMI conversion to display 480i signals. The receiver would not display S Video converted to HDMI on my DLP, nor would the on screen menu work (also 480i). Denon told me if I...

AVR-887 7.1
 
Working with DENON products like usual with setup was great, the problem was the HDMI connection are very picky and if a flea so much as farts you can loose contact between the cable connector and receiver jack. Had to use multiple brands of HDMI cable only one brand fit a little better than all others.

Great Receiver, Same As 2307
 
I'm very happy with this receiver. The sound quality is excellent and the features are very nice. It's got everything I need and the upconversion to HDMI is a pleasure. Most of my wires and cables have disappeared. Definitely worth the $$ and I believe it's the same model as the AVR-2307 sold in different stores (and the 987 is the 2807).

Worst interface ever. Worst manual ever. With that said, once you do have it set up and working properly, this unit is awesome. BUT, after just a few years the audio quality started to get a little weird and I could hear very slight popping noises. This degraded over time to the point that it's now unusable. Mind you, this only happens when playing anything tat requires more than 2 channels of audio over optical. I've spent far too much time online in audio forums trying to troubleshoot this sys...

Solid entry-level high-end HT receiver
 
The Denon AVR-887 is a solid entry-level high-end home theater receiver. You can pay thousands for units that don't do a whole lot more or sound exceptionally better.A down side to high-end is that they are not always simple to set up and use, and the AVR-887 is no exception.Not having a PhD in particle physics, electronics, or aerospace engineering, it had to read the manual and go online to find out how all of the I/O options worked.Hooked up to a home-built...
