Product Details

Denon 7.1 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver, Model AVR1911

Designed to provide the ultimate surround sound experience, the AVR-1911 delivers a surprising level of features, technology and performance in an affordable and easy-to-use component. It's also one of the first to come equipped with HDMI 1.4a features, including 3D pass-through (Broadcast and Blu-ray), along with Audio Return Channel. The surround decoder features full 32 bit floating point processing, and handles the latest high resolution audio formats, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, which are found on many popular Blu-ray releases. As well, the AVR-1911 features Dolby Pro Logic IIz decoding, which provides for an expanded front soundstage by deriving two additional height channels, as well as providing Music, Movie and Game surround modes with conventional stereo audio sources. Setup is fast and easy thanks to Audyssey MultEQ automatic room acoustic measurement and correction, and the versatile remote can control other components in your home theater system and is easily programmed.

Key Features:

  • Thrilling Surround Sound Performance
    Featuring the latest high resolution audio decoders, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, formats found on Blu-ray discs, the AVR-1911 is also equipped with Dolby Pro Logic IIz, which provides the option of front height effects channels, for a dramatically expanded front soundstage. Pro Logic IIz also breathes new life with your stereo audio sources, providing enveloping surround sound
  • Equipped With HD Radio
    In addition to conventional AM and FM tuning, the AVR-1911 also features HD Radio. With HD AM radio sounds like FM, and HD FM radio sounds like CD
  • HDMI 1.4a Includes 3D Blu-ray Compatibility
    The AVR-1911 includes the latest HDMI 1.4a specification, which provides 3D Blu-ray pass-through (Broadcast and Blu-ray) capability, as well as providing Audio Return Channel. There are 4 HDMI inputs, along with standard definition and component video inputs. Standard definition video sources such as VCR and DVD are upconverted to HDMI, which allows for a single HDMI cable run to the TV, avoiding the expense and hassle of multiple cable runs
  • Easy Setup With Automatic Room Acoustic Correction
    Audyssey MultEQ dynamic room acoustic correction system features a microphone (included) to automatically measure the speaker configuration and provide acoustic tailoring for the best surround sound experience, and provides quick and easy setup. Dynamic Volume minimizes jarring volume jumps during commercial breaks, and Dynamic EQ provides a natural tonal balance even at very low volume levels
  • Quality Discrete Power Amplifier Section
    The equal power amp design features 7 discrete power amp circuits, and each channel is rated at 90 watts (8 ohms, 20 Hz to 20 kHz, .08% THD). For configuration flexibility, Denon’s Power Amp Assign function lets you use 2 of the amp channels for surround back speakers, or front height effects speakers, or they can be assigned for stereo second zone multi-room use

      The instruction manual is not explained in layman's terms. Unless you are very familiar with sound systems it is not clear what is meant.

      Simple versions/recommendations such as "use this setting when watching a DVD" are not provided.

      Comments about Denon 7.1 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

      I purchased this receiver for my downstairs movie, television and music listening. I'm running 5.1 with 2 speakers running my bose outdoor speakers in zone 2. This receiver is perfect if you do not need a lot of composite or component interfaces which means ideal for HDMI for the most part. Key features where HDMI 1.4, secondary zone (audio) output. Key competitors were Pioneer VSX-1020-K, TX-NR508. I have owned many Onkyos so I was a little leery of heat issues. I like the sound better than my Yamaha RX-a800 (In my theater room)
      very rich even when pumped into Polk bookshelf speakers. I had for a couple months now and so far my price at ABT has not been beaten anywhere and I'm pleased with the value.

          Denon quality is unbeatable. This receiver was no exception to their reputation. Sound is clear, crisp, and powerful. My paradigms came to life and keep filling my space the more I push them. The microphone setup is simple and to the point. On screen displays are easy to use and do the job.. Who cares how they look?

          Best receiver for the price. Denon packs all of their receivers with the same amps inside. Some more power, some less. This is the perfect combination of power and hook-ups.

            Best Uses

              Comments about Denon 7.1 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

              I was very excited when I got this receiver, but after a couple of weeks of really using it, I'm sad to say, I'm sending it back.

              While the sound quality is exceptional (I'd expect nothing less of Denon), the controls and user interface is poorly designed and limited. Making simple adjustments is a vexing and tedious task.

              Here are some examples:
              1. After using the Audissey(tm) setup microphone, I noticed movies were sounding muffled and the rear surround speakers were too loud.
              2. I could not figure out how to increase the treble and reduce the bass. I'm very technical, but the manual is all but impossible to understand.
              3. iPod: I was excited to learn that I could use the receiver not just to connect my iPhone to and play music, but more importantly to control my iPod through the receiver remote. You see, with my old receiver, I connected my iPhone to it via some RCA cables on the Auxillary jack, but to change the song or fast forward, I had to walk over to the iphone and manually make the change.
              When I set up the Denon with the iphone, I couldn't believe how poorly the denon's design was. Once connected to the Denon, one can only control the iphone through the denon. The iPhone screen is frozen. The only screen you get to see is the small digital led screen of the Denon. Scrolling through my hundreds of songs required repeated clicking of the remote. The feature made using the iPhone impossible.

              What's more, I couldn't play songs with Pandora either because the Denon only allows audio from the iphone via the iPod application. When connected to the receiver, the iPhone displayed the message (no Audio available) when Pandora was playing music.

              4. The on-screen menu looks like a mainframe computer from the 70's. I've seen better graphics on an atari. See photos. Moreover, the menu is impossible to understand. Try to adjust the bass? The main menu shows 'Audio Adjust'. But that's not where the bass adjust is. It's under 'Manual Setup'. Then you find 'Bass Adjust'. On the Bass adjust menu, See the photo I attached of the user manual's explanation of the manual setup process. If you can figure it out, let me know.
              I soon realized today that if I didn't return this receiver, these small things would begin to annoy the heck out of me. So, it's going back.

              With these devices, small features like the iPod control command a significant mark-up on price. Why should I pay for features that limit my enjoyment? I shouldn't. I won't.
