  • Gave denon a try
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Birdog - January 16, 2021

    Tried this receiver for a couple weeks it replaced a Yamaha 7-1 receiver. I liked the set up and screen walk through. Did not like the sound though sounded muffled up front for tv. Tried different settings and speaker levels helped a little but not enough. The other issue I had was the zone 2 hook up. In order to hook up my patio speakers on zone 2 I would only be able to run a 5-1 speaker configuration. Tried to contact denon emailed some questions about hooking up the patio speakers they didn’t answer my question asked for my answer never heard back so I returned the denon and bought a Yamaha . I guess stick with what you know!!

  • Happy with my refurbished AVR-S960H
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Ernest S - August 3, 2021

    Purchase a Denon refurbished receiver Avr-S960H, saved about $150.00. Box was neatly wrapped, manual is on line, but you can download it, be prepared its close to 300 pages. Back to the receiver, I set it up 5.1.2 the atmos setup. I used the adjustments write out of the box except for the center speaker and the 2 back speakers. I increased the center speaker distance by 2 feet, and 2 feet subtraction for the back speakers. I have had several receivers in my life ranging from onkyo to pioneer elite and I have to say this had the best overall sound..I'm very happy with the purchase and recommend the refurbished receiver if you are looking to save some money.

  • Works but has faults
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Nick - April 17, 2021

    I got this specifically to pair with my PS5 and LG CX OLED. When changing the input to 8K (which is also default for 4k 120hz) it usually does not have display on the TV or audio through surround sound for PS5 initially. I have to turn the receiver off and back on then it works. I contacted Denon about it and they advised it's an issue on their 2020 models. Not a big issue, just annoying. With more receivers coming out this year with HDMI 2.1 I'd recommend passing on this one and getting something different which works 100%. Also, the remote doesn't have lights for the buttons which is an inconvenience for use in the dark.
