Denon AVR-1909 review: Denon AVR-1909


Denon AVR-1909

Three HDMI inputs; onboard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding; Sirius and XM-ready; upconverts analog signals to 1080p over HDMI output; automatic speaker calibration; decent video quality on upconverted video signals.

Terrible remote; difficult setup; competition offers more HDMI inputs for less money; no graphical user interface.

The Denon AVR-1909 sounds great and is fully featured, but isn't the easiest receiver to set up and use.

Denon AVR-1909 7.1 A/V Receiver


With over a five thousand dollar range from the entry level AVR-588 to the top of the line AVR-5308CI, Denon offers a receiver to fill just about every budget and need. While not necessarily inexpensive at $649, the Denon AVR-1909 can be considered a...

The Denon AVR-1909 is one heck of a receiver. Considering what the features on the Denon would have cost just a year or so ago, it offers a great value at $649. Aside from its great theater sound, with features including the latest HDMI video...

Denon AVR-1909 review


Good as it is, when compared with the best the Denon doesn't display the same level of clarity with Blu-ray or DVD soundtracks and lacks the agility a

Robust design ; rich presentation ; weighty sound

Not as dynamic, detailed or musical as the very best

The Denon may no longer be a five-star product, but it remains talented enough to warrant serious consideration

Denon AVR-1909 review


This weighty Denon has aural grunt – but prefers movies to games

Solid build ; Weighty sound with good scale ; Great with movies

So good with movies you will forget to play games on your PS3

Packs quite a punch when you get it going, another home cinema superstar from Denon

Terrible remote ; Difficult setup ; Competition offers more HDMI inputs for less ; No graphical user interface

Analog upconversion is still a useful feature for those with analog video components, but it's worth acknowledging that analog video-only devices are becoming rare, with the (big) exception of the Nintendo Wii. If you're just planning on using the...

920 - HK 254 - Pioneer 1018 - Denon 1909 or 988 I didn't even try the Onkyos, because I was afraid of the overheating problems and the humming noise reported on many units. Plus, they are downright ugly. The Yamaha had only 2 HDMI, and did not pass...

great combination


Denon AVR 1909 AV receiver have always worked great with my Boseâ"¢ shelf speakers. As you may have known, those Bose shelf speakers need a receiver for it to be useful since it does not have its own power input. Specs/Features: Width: 17.1 in Height:...
