Denon DRA-685


Review summary Denon makes some of our favorite multichannel A/V receivers, so we were more than a little curious about its two-channel stereo models. We went for the top model, the Denon DRA-685 ($499 list). It offers extensive multiroom capability,...

Potent-sounding stereo receiver; 100 watts per channel; dual-zone, multiroom capability with second remote; turntable input; composite-video switching; A/B speaker switching.

Back-to-the-'90s styling; poorly designed remote; multiroom setup is difficult and requires lots of extra equipment.

Denon's top stereo receiver sonically clobbers equivalently priced A/V receivers.
