Great Sound
Sounds great, once you get it set up. The only problem I have is it is the HEOS setup is difficult and directions are terrible. In addition, you can have all speakers, or just two sets playing, haven't figured out how to get two speakers (inside) for me playing without turning outside (zone 2) on. Essentially 2 of the 4 indoor speakers will play when zone 1 is on, unless I select all speakers stereo then the second set will go on. Not sure how to play the 4 indoor without outdoor on.

Excellent Sound and Value
Needed to upgrade a 20-year old receiver to match the various inputs we've accumulated in the past few years, including a new 55" UHD TV. This Denon received very positive reviews from a number of well known tech review sources, and the price made it an incredible value at almost 50% off, even over $100 lower than Amazon's price.

I have it set up as a 5.1 surround system with mid-range Klipsh speakers and the sound is incredible. It has totally transformed the quality of sound from its multiple inputs, especially 4K TV/movie and sports. It's feature packed with plenty of room for expansion looking ahead a number of years.

I couldn't be happier with this Denon receiver, although now I have to get 2 more speakers . . .

The Sound is Incredible!
This Dennon AVR does everything I would expect from a a mid level receiver! This is my first AVR, and being it from World Wide Stereo at 50% off was a major plus.

My Blu Ray movies have come alive, and the sound is incredible using the Bluetooth function paired with my iPhone. I'm thinking this was a great purchase...

Great receiver. No problems so far. Didn’t realize I couldn’t use a passive subwoofer but that’s on me. It was real easy setup.

This receiver is AWESOME
I'm so impressed with the capabilities of my new receiver. It's going to be a steady project to build what I want, but I now have a great foundation to start it with. WW stereo has very competitive prices and it was delivered even quicker than expected. I also qualified for 0% financing and I took advantage of it. Nice touch.

Clear but not so seperated
Looking for a super upgrade in a 7.2 . Got new Definitive"s speakers. Sound was good but found two concerns.
Peaked at volume 73 then turned off.

Atmos on this unit is 5.2 not 7.2 .Returned it for a 9.2 and 120W unit, now I can use all my speakers along with my top two reflective speakers on my towers which hook up to the Height connections.
