Denon Black AVR-1709 Home Theater Surround Sound Receiver - AVR1709

Music around the home is now easier to realize than ever before. The AVR-1709 features a powerful seven channel amplifier section that can be easily configured for a 7.1 channel surround sound loudspeaker system, or to drive a 5.1 channel surround sound system in the main room, while at the same time able to drive a pair of stereo speakers in another room. Featuring tremendous video signal handling flexibility, the AVR-1709 features three latest specification v1.3a HDMI digital video inputs and one HDMI output that handles HD signals up to the highest 1080p resolution. As well, the AVR-1709 features on-board video up-conversion, along with three HD component video inputs for additional video signal handling flexibility. For optimum surround sound quality, the Audyssey MultEQ in-room acoustic measurement and optimization system measures the loudspeaker’s overall response (at up to six different measurement points) and tailors the audio signal for the smoothest, most natural-sounding tonal balance throughout the listening space. And, the AVR-1709 is one of the first to offer Audyssey’s Dynamic Volume leveling system, which eliminates jarring volume jumps between TV shows and commercials, as well as Audyssey Dynamic EQ to ensure rich bass and smooth tonal balance, even at low volume levels. Two remote controls are provided – one for the main room, and a second easy-to-use remote control for second zone audio control.

Comments about Denon Black Home Theater Surround Sound Receiver:

I used the AVR1709 to replace my Pioneer that I loved after only 4years due to a failure of the power supply and the blown center channel amplifier. I only had the Pioneer for about 4 years, so I was a little off guard for the cost. Since times are hard I opted for a more economical route to replace the receiver. I had purchased a Denon about 3 years ago as a close-out for a great price. I really liked the way it sounded and even switched it with the Pioneer in the Family Room. When the bedroom system stopped working after only 4 years, I decided to try another Denon. I was looking at the cheaper versions so I didn't expect much. But, I was blown away by what I got. I even went back for a Denon Blue-Ray player to put in the Family Room. I will buy more Denon products in the future. I just wish someone had introduced them to me sooner so I would not have wasted so many years of my life without them. Music will never again be the same. And then, THERE WAS SOUND.....

Comments about Denon Black Home Theater Surround Sound Receiver:

I purchased this product on the recommendation of the salesperson and quickly realized that he was about 5 to 6 years behind the times. This particular model has no HDMI Audio capability which was essential to me. I returned the product for an Onkyo TRX 5607, which is much more conducive to my setup. If you plan to run audio and video from your TV to your receiver, don't purchase this model.

Oh, and for the same price point you can purchase a receiver that has on-screen menus which makes the set-up so much easier.
