Product Details

Denon 5.1 CH A/V Home Theater Receiver In Black, Model AVR1610

Affordability and high performance are the hallmarks of the AVR-1610 home theater receiver, which features the latest high resolution audio decoders, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. As well, the AVR-1610 is one of the first to include Dolby’s new Pro Logic IIz decoding, which provides front channel height effects, to dramatically increase the front soundstage for the ultimate surround sound experience. With three HDMI inputs and two HD-compatible component inputs, the AVR-1610 features analog-to-digital HDMI video conversion, allowing a single HDMI cable run to your HDTV, simplifying connections and minimizing cable costs at the same time. Top audio fidelity is assured with the Audyssey MultEQ room acoustic measurement and correction system, which analyzes the speakers and the listening room at up to six measurement points (microphone included) and automatically corrects the response for the smoothest, most natural tonal balance. Audyssey Dynamic Volume and Dynamic EQ ensure rich tonal quality at any volume level, with no annoying volume jumps at commercial interruptions. You can also connect and control your iPod/touch or iPhone using one of Denon’s available iPod/iPhone docks, which provides on-screen artist, album and song information.

    AWESOME Receiver

    By MrSunDevil

    from Chicagoland, IL

    About Me Audiophile, Movie Enthusiast, Tech Savvy

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Easy Setup
    • Good Power Output
    • Great Sound Quality

    Cons

    • Runs Hot

    Best Uses

    • Home Theater

    Comments about Denon 5.1 CH A/V Home Theater Receiver In Black:

    I have owned AV receivers from Sony, Yamaha, Pioneer and Nakamichi. This is by far the best receiver I have ever owned. The setup is easy, the sound quality is spectacular--don't let the mere 75 watts/ch deceive you--this receiver will blow your neighbors away!! High current amplifiers are FAR superior to high wattage amplifiers. I have this attached to Klipsch KG-10 front speakers, Quintet rears, a Klipsch powered subwoofer and center channel and I have never heard such power and clarity.

    Nice Basic AV Receiver

    By dpmolino

    from Charlotte, NC

    About Me Audiophile

    Pros

    • Clean Sound
    • Great Sound Quality

    Cons

    • Confusing / Bad Remote Control
    • Difficult To Set Up

    Best Uses

    • Basic Systems
    • Home Theater
    • Smaller Rooms

    Comments about Denon 5.1 CH A/V Home Theater Receiver In Black:

    Nice sounding well built gear. A little higher priced than some equivalent equipment but beats those in sound quality. Somewhat limited in terms of inputs for older, non-HDMI equipment. Confusing set up and remote operation but manageable. Note that though not a multi zone receiver, it does have ouputs for B speakers. However, no options to set up the B speakers differntly from the As. A great choice for basic home theater or second system as I am using it for.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Have purchased from Abt several times. Good purchasing experience and service, as comunications. Prompt delievry. Note better prices can be negotiated which has been key to my continued business.

    My first AV receiver

      Best Uses

      • Basic Systems

      Comments about Denon 5.1 CH A/V Home Theater Receiver In Black:

      I use this receiver for football games, movies and music. Very clean sound. Powers my Polk Monitor 50 speakers to loud levels, but not as loud as I liked in college. HDMI passthrough works well with my U-verse tv receiver, as well as my Panasonic Blu-ray player. Setup isn't bad if you don't mind reading the manual. [...]has some guides on setting up Denon receivers, which simplified the process.

        Finally! Updated features on a 5.1 ch!

        By John

        from Florida

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • 5 channels not 7
        • Auto setup works great
        • HDMI conversion 1 cable

        Cons

        • No ded out to 2nd amp

        Best Uses

        • Great sound and switching
        • On a budget

        Comments about Denon 5.1 CH A/V Home Theater Receiver In Black:

        I don't own, nor do I plan to own, 7 speakers. This amp provides all of the necessary video switching and signal processing without the cost of the extra two channels.
        The detail it looks at when doing the auto-setup is astounding.
        All of this keeping in mind the price.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Quick delivery. Huge outer box was damaged, but the foot of airbags around the product kept it in perfect condition.
