        Used in large family room for surround sound from TV and Blu Ray player. Very easy set up, automatically configured speakers and set equalizer levels. Performance with equalizer and dynamic volume control was exactly what I was looking for in an AV receiver. This works very well. Blu Ray sound is awesome. It was also easy to add to my universal Harmony remote.

          Comments about Denon 5.1 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

          This receiver provides for four HDMI Inputs and one HDMI output to a TV set. I thought what a waste when most TVs, including my current TV, provide for three or even four HDMI inputs.
          Well, I am also planning on purchasing a new TV. So I just started reviewing TVs on the Abt website. I soon noticed that the majority of TVs (at lease in my price range) now provide for only two HDMI inputs. I need a minimum of three. Now I understand why DENON provides for four HDMI inputs. They are providing for the "future" and the new "standards" for TV sets, etc.
          There are other provisions for "digital connections" that we will need to provide for and this DENON does a great job of providing for them.
          I would like more audio inputs but the remote control source selector deals with this "problem" very well.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery service from Abt simply cannot be beat. I have purchased quite a few electronic devices from Abt and I have never received an item that was in a damaged carton. Also, delivery time is incredible. I don't know how Abt does it.

            I use this AVR in a 20x20 room with 10 foot ceilings and it is plenty powerful for home theater. Took some learning of the settings and how to store in memory but all in all not to bad when you figure out how the manual works on the cdrom as there is no hard copy of the manual included.

              Comments about Denon 5.1 Channel Black AV Home Theater Receiver:

              The Denon AVR-1612 receiver was used for a Dolby Digital 5.1 audio system used exclusively with an Xbox console. The Audyssey system was easy to setup, and it eliminates tedious manual speaker level settings. The AVR-1612 can run hot at high volume, so ample ventilation is needed. Connected to Polk Audio speakers and subwoofer, the Denon drives them with clarity, and gets loud enough for a small room for realistic sound effects and soundtracks from the Xbox. The HDMI setting should be set to "digital" to ensure that the Denon decodes the Dolby Digital signal.

                  I used to have an old analog one, which I lately dumped after more than 30 years since I bought it. This one is just more than enough for
                  my 15x20 room size. I am using this with Energy
                  Take 5.1 speakers that still need break in, but as
                  is now it sounds great. I'm sill learning how to
                  operate this receiver properly - there's too many
                  things, because this is digitial one.

                  It's a good receiver for the money. It's also an improvement of the menus and interface compared to an older model I also own. This one I use in a 3.1 configuration in my living room w/ Polk speakers (Monitor70/CS2/PSW10). Had to replace a Phillips receiver that couldn't power this speaker combination.
