Denon AVR-1912 review

 

As music and movie lovers demand more power and features, the number of brands entering the market through dealers also increases. Denon is one of the brands whose presence is well known in India. The new AVR-1912 is a receiver designed for enthusiasts...

The Denon AVR-1912's price in India is Rs. 45,900, so it doesn’t really end up being the cheapest receiver around. As far as its connectivity options go, it’s very good and it's a solid solution for a good speaker set.

The Denon AVR-1912 is the most complete midrange AV receiver we've seen in 2011 so far. It's one of the only two receivers in its class (the other being the Pioneer VSX-1021-K) with built-in support for Apple's AirPlay, a feature that lets you use any...

The Denon AVR-1912 is the most full-featured AV receiver we've seen at this price, with built-in AirPlay for Apple's iOS products and six HDMI inputs. Its networking features also include DLNA compatibility and several streaming media services, such as...

The GUI can look pretty bad if your HDTV has mediocre standard-definition processing. Denon also doesn't offer a Wi-Fi dongle, so you'll need to use a workaround if you don't have Ethernet in your living room. And we would have preferred one of those...

The Denon AVR-1912 gets our Editors' Choice Award in the midrange AV receiver category, with built-in AirPlay, outstanding sound quality, and six HDMI inputs.

Denon AVR-1912 7.1 Channel Networked A/V Receiver First Look

 

For those not in the know, there are two receiver lines from Denon. The ones that have a model number that end in 'CI' are the higher end, "Custom Installer" models. These models often have expanded features that attract not only the power user, but...

There is a lot to like in the Denon AVR-1912. While they had to make some tradeoffs as far as number of connections, the fact that a $530 receiver is not only networked but also streams Internet radio, Rhapsody, Napster, and Pandora and is compatible...

Denon AVR-1912 review

 

Apple's nifty music streaming feature, AirPlay, is slowly finding its way onto more and more home cinema products, and Denon's AVR-1912 is another one to add to the list. This makes it dead simple to play music from iPods, iPhones and iPads, but with...

Crisp, polished performance; built-in AirPlay; build quality

Lacks the gusto of midrange rivals; no video scaling; mixed GUI; skimps on connections ; Performance: 3/5 ; Design: 4/5 ; Features: 4/5 ; Overall: 3/5

Denon's AirPlay-equipped receiver is good but no match for its superior midrange rival

Six HDMI inputs ; Supports AirPlay ; Smooth, detailed sound

Not as aurally exciting as some rivals ; Some operational foibles ; No video scaling or Wi-Fi support

The AVR-1912 is relatively light on connections, although compromises were always likely at this price. Thankfully Denon hasn’t skimped on HDMI inputs, offering six v1.4 ports plus a single ARC-compatible output. You only get two digital audio inputs...

"Good, but please do some research to get better!"

 

Okay, so I set out to make my home theater for for the first time. I am a technology geek (work as an network admin) and do my research before settling on purchases.

+ Sound quality of Audyssey EQ calibration

- Interface is crap

The last Dennon receiver I bought 15 years ago is still going strong.

Works as advertised, relatively easy to setup.

The manual is a bit obtuse.
