Denon AVR-789 review: Denon AVR-789

 

Denon AVR-789

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-789 sounds great and is fully featured, but isn't the easiest receiver to set up and use.

Excellent audio performance, especially when customized in setup, Generous analog video support, with upconversion

Upconversion of analog/SD sources could look better, Remote, menus and overall design can be frustrating at times

Terrible remote ; Difficult setup ; Competition offers more HDMI inputs for less money ; 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...
