Bottom Line:   
Have owned many mid priced receivers since the early 1970s. This is probably tied with the Marantz (when they were made by Marantz) as being the best. It does all I want it to. Never given me any problems. My other stereo friends bellieve it has much more power than it does. Extremely satisfied.

Bottom Line:   
If you insist on having a Home Theatre
set-up,then this reciever is probably just as good as any out there in the same price range.However,if music is more your thing,then don't do it!Untill you get into much bigger bucks,there is nothing in the marketplace that actually sounds good.
My advice is simple.Unless you are willing to spend $2000 or more for proper HT amplification,then don't even try.A good amp/reciever,preferably not Asian,will provide most of the boom and bang that you want from HT,but will give you a whole lot better music.
As for this HT reciever,well,I have very little good to say about it cuz it just sounds plain ordinary.If yer into lots of bells and whistles,then this unit is for you.If you want to impress your friends with the name/look/display/etc,then this will do the trick.
But
for sound quality,it's a no-show.
I have used some pretty good sorces for it(Rotel RCD 971,Cambridge cd,a couple others borrowed for comparison)Some top-notch speakers,good interconnects,cables etc,and this thing just didn't perform.

Bottom Line:   
The 1801 is a big upgrade from my 2 channel Onkyo. For me, the Denon is the complete package for home audio and video. All modes of input sound great from the 20 year old turntable to my DVD player.
