Denon DHT-1513BA Home Theater System Preview


At $600, the Denon DHT-1513BA has a lot going for it. While it is a bare-bones receiver, it has discrete amplification (75watts x 5), 3D pass-through, GUI over HDMI, and multiple HDMI inputs.

What is key with the Denon DHT-1513BA is that you are getting a full fledged receiver (the Denon AVR-1513) along with a set of 5.1 speakers from Boston Acoustics. If this sounds more like a package deal than a HTiB, you are right. The AVR-1513 is on...

Unbelievable sound, especially for speaker size


Bought this system for my apartment, am very picky, since I record and mix music for a living, and bad speakers will bug me to no end. This system did not disappoint one bit. The room speakers all have large magnets in them, produce a powerful, full...

This is a great receiver, especially when I picked it up on deal of the day for $300, my only complaint so far is I wish it had some power outlets in the rear to power other equipment like my old kenwood had. Other than that, it was easy to set up and...

A VERY good system - needs wi-fi and USB to be a 5


System came with the bass cable (a single RCA cable) and speaker wire for all 5 speakers, so nothing else was needed. The Boston speakers have a very good sound - crisp and clear - I hear sounds that my old system couldn't make, so it makes the entire...

great sound system


I was comparing between Denon and Onkyo but Bestbuy had an one day deal so I purchased this one with $299.99. It was really easy to set up and using HDMI cables with all my TV, cable box, & ps3 and sounds are awsome! The best thing about is I can go to...

Easy to set up & operate

receiver is kind of too big
