I've had this product for less then a week, but I've been so impressed that I feel compelled to write an early review. I purchased this unit to meet my personal needs; power my entertainment center in the living room, and power a serrate zone outside with a second audio source (airplay, Pandora, etc.). This unit does so well, although it takes a few steps to power airplay in zone 2 while listening to TV audio in Zone. However once it's set up it seems to work flawlessly. I am not an audiophile, but to my ear the sound is great. Another reason for the 5 star review is the customer service. I ran into two issues during initial set up. Both times I called the Denon support line and spoke to a live body in less then 5 minutes. Each rep was professional and knowledgeable, and my questions were answered very quickly. My initial experience with both the receiver and the company have been amazing.

Delivered on time. Easy to set up. Room setup worked great. The sound is excellent and drives my Definitive Tech. surround system wonderfully. Works perfect with a Harmony remote and the Denon app / aftermarket apps for controlling all settings from your phone/ tablet. the perfect receiver if you have moved to equipment with HDMI outputs. Simple!

I swapped out my Panasonic receiver for this receiver, and it does make my music sound better. It seems the clarity I hear from my CD's is a result of this company focuses on receivers. As a oppose to companies like Panasonic or Sony who make an array of electronics and have to keep track of many product quality issues. Denon focuses on a few products and do them all well.
