Solid receiver for 5.1


Bought it because it was the cheapest but very happy. Sounds great. Plenty of power. Bluetooth works flawlessly. Love the quick select feature on the remote, lets you set up different profiles (source, sound mode, volume etc). No complaints.

Although seen as the entry ARV model the AVRRX520BT fulfils all expectations


A quality AVR with a well documented set up procedure made this purchase a pleasure to install. The Quality of sound and capabilities of the system give you a true Home thearter experience.

Currently seems the best of it's type!


For a budget AV Receiver this Denon has plenty of features and is a nice step up from my previous piece of kit by a different manufacturer (which failed due to a couple of cheap and nasty capacitors after five years) In those five years 4K connectivity...

Ok but intermittent Bluetooth and USB with ios


Sound is good once connected. But seems to be a 'hit and miss' as I was told by support about iOS and the USB and Bluetooth. USB did not work with USB and Bluetooth did eventually once everything was rebooted.

Good entry level amp


I got this as an exchange after my Yamaha amp could not be repaired within 30 days. I originally took out the extended warranty, which proved a good buy. The new amp seems better in terms of sound quality and it has a few more features. I have to say...

I bought this to replace an old AV amp. For the price this has a great set of features and suits my needs perfectly. Very easy to set up, with the inbuilt guide helping you to get everything right. I've got it connected to a set of Wharfdale DX1 SE...

Just the job.


This may be an entry level AV Receiver but it does everything i want it to do and probably more. With plenty of inputs and bluetooth as well it should satisfy most peoples requirements. Sound quality is excellent, as expected from Denon, using a fairly...

Good starter unit for the price


Easy to connect everything to and set-up. Perfect for my new Sony Bravia TV. The in-built am and fm radio works very well and saving stations is easy. The remote itself is a bit cheap-feeling but very easy to use and is well laid out. The bluetooth...

bluetooth , pre-set sound selection

no leads , surround sound effect disappointing

Excellent receiver


Bought this to replace my very old, yet still good, Kenwood surround receiver. Needed one with an optical input and spotted this at the brilliant price of £149.99. Very easy to set up to get going. Wired in the 4 speakers, connected the optical lead to...
