My Denon AVR 960hr shuts off when changing source whether eco is on auto or off. And what’s more frustrating it happens even when it’s only been running for 10 minutes. Very frustrating I have just bought this refurbished about a month ago and can’t find what’s wrong with it.

What little time I had this receiver it seemed to produce great sound and there were several options to figure out which would take some time. The biggest issue I had was the receiver just would not work with the Logitech Harmony remote. The receiver was compatible with the remote but just never would function like it should. So close but yet so far. I tried every conceivable way to fix the issues but to no avail. I sent the receiver back within a few day of delivery. Once the company received the unit they did refund my money in full.

Happy I switched back from soundbars
I purchased the AVR-S960H as a factory refurbished model, and it has exceeded my expectations. It functions perfectly and cosmetically it looks new. I am very pleased with the sound quality, features, performance, and compatibility with my other AV components. I owned two app-controlled soundbars over the past 7 years and I originally switched to them for simplicity of setup and operation, but I was never fully satisfied with the sound. Given Denon's return policy, I decided to try switching back to an AV receiver and separate speakers. I'm really glad I did because my experience with the Denon is far better than the soundbars and other receivers I owned in the past.

Does. This receiver play multi-channel DSD through the HDMI?

  Thanks for your question. According to advice from Denon, the AVR-S960H will play multi-channel DSD through the HDMI input.

Curious how many zones can be set up? I am planning on 3 or 4
Dan S on Jan 1, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. The AVR-S890H has provisions for only one (assignable) powered 2nd zone. The Denon 9 channel AVRs have provisions for a second and third assignable powered zone.
