Video pass thru flickering
 
The sound of this receiver is great for Dolby digital, DTS or multi channel audio content. If you still use two channel content from certain devices the dsp is fair to create surround sound. The video pass thru from the receiver to the tv does flicker. The sound cuts out also. I had to run my Roku and other media streamer directly to the TV. This is a known problem with Denon. Several posts are on the internet concerning this problem. I wouldn't buy this receiver if my main reason was to add vid...

Love it
 
I got this one after returning the Sony STRDH590 which was a piece of junk. I like how this one tells you which audio format you are using like Dolby Digital Dolby Pro Logic etc etc on the LCD screen. But what was a huge plus for me was that it comes with two optical ports. Now I can connect my cd player into it using that hook up. I dont like having to use the HDMI for that cause then you need to keep the tv on the whole time. The set up was fast and very simple. It has speaker volume levels wh...

The Jury is still out on this one
 
The receiver itself is great for what it is, however, I purchased this device to replace an older receiver that i used in my main room entertainment center. I replaced because we moved to a 4k TV and needed the 4K passthru. The receiver worked great after the first setup ... BUT , it seems to have an issue with syncing to the TV. I was told by the rep that it works perfectly with my Sony X900f ... But every time the TV gets an update, I must manually unplug the receiver and plug it back in to ...

Poor initial setup
 
The review from John about 'no instruction manual' is correct. And frustrating as well. I bought this receiver to use outside for outdoor speakers and an occasional projector. My first install was just to run the speakers to listen to music from my phone. That stopped the install process all together. It is not a plug in, turn on and go. You HAVE to connect it to a video source first and go through the setup screens. Most of which were irrelevant to my install and use. Another thing ...

Excellent receiver for the money!
 
Good pounding Power, (745Watts) the sound just jumps out at you! Great value per watt!! easy set up up, w/ hdmis, coax, optical's, rca,s , 2 sub out, etc. Not cluttered with a bunch of options you don't need or wont use, Simple, elegant, Power, Great Brand and easily one of the most competitively priced units available.

Great AVR for the price
 
Was easy to setup. Paired with my Samsung Galaxy S8 Active. Had an issue pairing with my HP envy Win10 laptop. It was the laptops built in Intel Bluetooth. Plugged in a Rocketfish Bluetooth dongle I had from my last laptop and paired fine, streaming music flawlessly. Try and get it on sale bought two weeks ago BestBuy honored the sale price. Did not use the HDMI passthrough as I didn't want to use the amp when we just watch tv. Did set up the optical in and coax in works great with excellent se...

Great receiver for a great price!
 
Went with this 5.2 as for our house we aren't going to have room for more than this. Impressive set of features and easy setup was great. The automatic tuning of the speakers was a pleasant surprise. The extra power to our bass speaker from this unit over our old one (Kenwood, 20+ years old) was also a nice addition. This thing easily powers 2 bookshelf speakers used as surround, and 2 floor standing speakers, and a bass. More sound than one could ever need for an average living room!
