Denon AVR-1909 review

 

This weighty Denon has aural grunt – but prefers movies to games

Solid build ; Weighty sound with good scale ; Great with movies

So good with movies you will forget to play games on your PS3

Packs quite a punch when you get it going, another home cinema superstar from Denon

Denon AVR-1909 review

 

Good as it is, when compared with the best the Denon doesn't display the same level of clarity with Blu-ray or DVD soundtracks and lacks the agility a

Robust design ; rich presentation ; weighty sound

Not as dynamic, detailed or musical as the very best

The Denon may no longer be a five-star product, but it remains talented enough to warrant serious consideration

Denon AVR-1909 7.1 A/V Receiver

 

With over a five thousand dollar range from the entry level AVR-588 to the top of the line AVR-5308CI, Denon offers a receiver to fill just about every budget and need. While not necessarily inexpensive at $649, the Denon AVR-1909 can be considered a...

The Denon AVR-1909 is one heck of a receiver. Considering what the features on the Denon would have cost just a year or so ago, it offers a great value at $649. Aside from its great theater sound, with features including the latest HDMI video...

Denon AVR-1909 review

 

Setting up an AV receiver isn't for the faint of heart. Stripping speaker wire, multitudes of cables, inputs and outputs, confusing configuration--even the most grizzled AV nerd is likely to make at least one mistake during a setup. And even after you...

Three HDMI inputs; onboard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding; Sirius and XM-ready; upconverts analog signals to 1080p over HDMI output; automatic speaker calibration; decent video quality on upconverted video signals.

Terrible remote; difficult setup; competition offers more HDMI inputs for less money; no graphical user interface.

The Denon AVR-1909 sounds great and is fully featured, but isn't the easiest receiver to set up and use.

The Denon AVR-1909 sounds great and is fully featured, but isn't the easiest receiver to set up and use.

Three HDMI inputs ; Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding ; Upconverts analog to 1080p over HDMI ; Automatic speaker calibration ; Decent upconverted video quality

Terrible remote ; Difficult setup ; Competition offers more HDMI inputs for less ; No graphical user interface

Analog upconversion is still a useful feature for those with analog video components, but it's worth acknowledging that analog video-only devices are becoming rare, with the (big) exception of the Nintendo Wii. If you're just planning on using the...

Denon AVR-1909

 

I did some research and shortlisted Onkyo 606, Denon 1909 & Marantz 5003. Onkyo just didn't sound right (and the online forums abound with the heating issues), Marantz sounded best (old model auditioned) but 5003 wasn't readily available in India at...

Decent sound for an AVR, features

Consumer review by: Dave050 (productreview.com.au)

Punched well above its weight, great audio

 

If you get an opportunity to pick one up second hand for a reasonable price, I couldn't recommend it more. Whilst it might lack some of the more modern features, there is enough connectivity for most entry-level users. Setup could be made easier, but...

Audio quality, style

Setup takes time

920 - HK 254 - Pioneer 1018 - Denon 1909 or 988 I didn't even try the Onkyos, because I was afraid of the overheating problems and the humming noise reported on many units. Plus, they are downright ugly. The Yamaha had only 2 HDMI, and did not pass...
