Great sound, breeze to set up and use
You wouldn't know this was used aside from some tiny scratches near the HDMI ports but those are never seen anyway.
Performs well and is easy to use.

Working perfectly! Only a few tiny paint scratches on the rear, near the hdmi ports, but no-one sees them so who cares?
September 11, 2019
So far so good. The sound is much better than my old Onkyo NR737. Drives the speakers harder.

Product is working great so far, but is missing the wifi antenna's.

Another Great Product from World Wide Stereo
Although a refurbished model, you can't tell! I especially love the immediate upgrade from the old system to this new one. A steal for the price!

Ease of purchase
This unit was the best price I could find, the process was easy and delivered as advertised. The unit arrived without Bluetooth and wireless antennas, and to this date they are working with me to try to replace them. I would give five stars if the unit was complete.

It is the best in class receiver for the money. The best speaker configuration set up software, watts per channel, up-scaling etc. I'd rather buy something excellent used than something mediocre new.

How many watts per channel this receiver ?
New User U on Apr 22, 2020
  Thanks for your question. Denon rates the power output as 105 watts RMS per channel, 2 channels driven, 20 to 20kHz, 8 ohms, 0.08% T.H.D. (total harmonic distortion).
What's the power input 120v or 220v?
A shopper on Jul 9, 2019
  As an authorized USA dealer the manufacturer provides us access only to 120VAC products.
What was fixed on this item?
A shopper on Mar 17, 2019
  Denon does not tell us what was repaired on each of these individual units.
Is refurbished good as new?
A shopper on Mar 17, 2019
  It is. It's like a certified pre-owned car. It comes with a Denon 12 month factory warranty.
