DRA-800H-R Black - USB issues
Unit performs well, but getting songs on a usb stick to play is a challenge. The on-line user guide shows a series of commands to play the songs, but the screen shots are of a different model's display.

Great receiver
Works excellent on CD with my MK speakers and woofer.
Also great on afternoon FM classical.

My only disappointment is it will not drive my Bose headset.

Are you sure this cannot be programed? Let me know.

Everything I was looking for!
Relatively easy to set up. Sounds really good with all the sources I've tried! I am using smallish bookshelf speakers (Wharfdale Diamond 225 pair) so the bass boost comes in very handy to balance the sound. I'm using a Roku + plugged into one of the inputs and using the ARC to connect my TV. I love the quality, features, and especially the sound!

Demon 800h.
I suspected, but wasn’t clear that it was refurbished. That said, all functions worked, was easy to set up even though there were no instructions in the box and sounds good with very quiet background. Wanted the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for streaming Tidal and Radio Paradise.

Just right affordable receiver
I didn't need a AV receiver. No TV in the living room but it's where I want to listen to music. This fit the bill. More adjustable than I realized and enough power to cleanly fill the room with my pair of speakers. I have a Powered Sub for a nice full sound.

Zone 2 not working
I got this off Amazon and was excited to power two rooms for HEaos / Airplay2. Unfortunately I was not able to get any sound out off the Zone 2 speaker outputs, no matter the input. This is going back

I'm looking to replace a Yamaha receiver I have had since 1988!! that is no longer switching inputs. I did a little research and liked that this would provide a lot of modern inputs and integration, and that I can easily connect my vintage turntable. I'm excited to have a working stereo again. I also wanted to buy from a smaller shop vs. a big box store since the price is the same!

WHAT IS THE SIGNAL GND FOR ON THE BACK OF THE DENON H-800?
A shopper on May 28, 2020
  Thanks for your question. Any receiver with a phono input customarily includes a grounding lug for the turntable ground cable.
I am considering pairing these with the Denon DRA-800H (https://www.worldwidestereo.com/products/denon-dra-800h-stereo-network-receiver-dra800hbke3) that is 100w per channel 8 ohms. Some concern on whether that receiver is truly 100w. If I add a second pair of smaller outdoor speakers I think it pulls from that output. Any insight on whether that receiver is a good fit for these speakers? Primarily 2 channel is what i want for CDs, Turntable and streaming music.

  Thanks for your inquiry. The DRA-800H is rated at 100 watts per channel (8ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, THD: 0.08%, 2ch driven). If you add a second set of speakers they must be rated as 8 ohm speakers in order to play both pairs simultaneously. Adding a second set does not pull from that output. Technically, connecting two pairs of 8 ohm speakers presents a 4 ohm load to the receiver which actually increases the total power output by about 40 to 50%. The DRA-800H is well suited to drive the KLH Kendall speakers.
Yes when do you think you will get the denon 800h receiver in stock?
