Bottom Line:   
This receiver replaced a Dolby ProLogic Yamaha RX-V493. Before purchasing it I also considered Yamaha RX-V740, Onkyo TX-SR601, and Marantz SR5300. The Denon was available at a reasonable price and I have read good reviews about it. Also, I like to experiment new brands and I have never had a Denon before.
It perfoms well with Dolby Digital DVDs. It has many surround modes for music listening. Besides Dolby PL-II and DTS-Neo, there are some DSP modes (concert hall, jazz club, matrix, stadium, etc) . But, it sounds so good in stereo mode that I never use surround modes when listening to CDs or FM.

Bottom Line:   
This is a wonderful receiver with great options. We purchased this receiver for our first 5.1 home theater system. I am driving Polk speakers all the way around with the exception of the sub which is a Velodyne DLS-3500. I am very impressed with this receiver which is classified as an Entry Mid-Level receiver. It has clear on screen display for setting up all of the options for the unit. The back panel is easy to understand and see where the different sources need to go. I am very happy with our purchase and I look forward to many years of great entertainment out of it.

Bottom Line:   
I just recently decided to switch from a high quality two-channel set-up to a multi-channel system. After much research and focus on Yamaha, H-K, Denon and Onkyo products, I selected the 1804. I am extremely happy with this unit. The build quality is very good, digital processing seems very good, plenty of options for connections, on-screen programming helps a lot, plenty of power for all channels (but I am using relatively efficient Paradigm speakers), and attractive uncluttered appearance.

I also like the future expansion possibilities of additional channels or another room system. Overall, a very good value product. There are several other good buys at this price level, but I don't think the others match the build quality of Denon.
