Denon AVR-2805 (black)

Automatic setup with included high-quality microphone; room-tuning equalization; group audio delay for use with lagging video displays; two-zone operation; 7.1-channel receiver.

Automatic setup could be easier to use.

Equipped with lip-sync delay, Denon's loaded AVR-2805 trumps the opposition in the feature wars.

Denon AVR-2805 & DVM-1815 DVD/CD changer, Polk Monitor 60 loudspeakers & PSW12 sub


Stage Two of the experiment involved evaluating the systems for ease of setup and operation, and sound quality. As with the shopping, I tried to approach setup and operation from a novice's perspective; however, there were minor glitches with all three...

Our expectations of immediate gratification were instantly shot down. The speakers sounded way too boomy. The solution: bringing them out farther into the room and filling their ports with the foamrubber plugs supplied with the speakers by B&W, a cure...

Automated set-up is so easy, leaving the Denon ready to perform ...... and boy does it perform! Absolutely amazing in every respect; good, clean sound with music and stunning with movies.

Decodes just about any format! Great with music too. Easy to set up and SO easy to use. Quality sound

None I found ; Nil ; Nada ; Rien

The (various) reviews suggest buying the "budget" Denon AVR2105. Similar specs, but this 2805 has many of the "higher-quality" parts of it's 3805 stablemate. So after some research, when I saw it for about 200 more than the 2105 I thought "why not?"....

Quality of sound ; 7.1 output ; connectivity options ; quality of build ; easy set-up through supplied mic ; video up-conversion to component ; on-screen display ability ; I could go on and on

Absolutely none so far
