Bottom Line:   
Hi,

I wanted a home theater amp that would make movies sound powerfull, and i wouldn't wonder "how would it sound with more power???" and it accomplishes that task hands down!
But IMO, the strong point of this beast is sound quality in pure direct mode, this amp would eat most of the AV receivers out there when it comes to music!
the expression "they don't make em like they used to" applies perfectly for this monster.
Maybe the newer mid range HD receivers would outperform it when it comes to digital sound for movies, etc.
But for pure power the A1SE delivers seriously! Just by lookng at it and picking it up, you realize how serious Denon was to have the best TOTR receiver out there at the time.

Bottom Line:   
This this is huge, big sound, I run it in a warehouse with a projector and MK 750 THX speakers. Its mad. The scene in Rules of Engamement with the machine gun fire practically resulted in the police turning up at our house.

The remote is good, though takes a bit of fiddling, make sure YOU SAVE your settings implicitly as I lost a few versions before I realised, the cabling at the back is not intuitive, but not impossible either. As an engi it was a lot of fun.

The manual is brief, very brief, and I am currently in the process of trouble shoosting my muffled sound now, I am sure it will be easily resolved.

Its loud, and crisp, with great speakers CD's sound amazing, movies sound better then ANY cinema I have attended due to the close personal sound field. Nice one

Bottom Line:   
This is a great system for watching movies & really makes itself indispensable when watching movies with es or ex soundtracks. I spent a large ammount of time testing various systems but then managed to arrange for a TXH approved engineer to demo the unit connected up to my B&W speaker system I bought it on the spot along with the two extra speakers.
