Bottom Line:   
Way superior to anything I have heard in Home Cinema, the Denon AVC-A1D is flexible, futureproof, has more than enough power to suit almost anyone and isn't lumbered with all that EX/ES stuff that all the manufacturers are adding now but no-one really needs at home (OK for dedicated installations - cinema rooms etc. but can't these people afford processors and power amps?). The Denon usefully has two multichannel analog inputs - meaning separate DVD-A and Mulitchannel SACD players is a possibility - something which many processors can't live up to... The Denon is a viable prospect for an all-in-one music and movies system for DVD/LD/DVD-A/SACD/CD etc. without sacrificing musical involvement on the altar of Home Cinema dynamics and processing. Alot of money (2000 pounds sterling) but worth it.

Bottom Line:   
This thing is great if you need a unit that does both HT and music. If I was more orientated towards music, I may go for seperates, but the denon is no slouch in music.

It outperforms all sub $US600 integrated's I have ever heard, it may compete higher, but I haven't compared.

HT performance goes without saying. If you want HT for a sub $3k price point, dont even bother looking at seperates, they simply can not compete in both sound and features to a decent surround amp.

The denon outclassed the yamaha (DSP-A1 at the time, but also the RX-V1) easily, esp. in music. It also outperformed the marantz and onkyo units when I demoed them.

I only bought it as I could get a good price on it. $2800 is still a good price for this unit, but I would prefer to go seperates at the full price, as I am fairly music orientated and seps give that extra flexibility and upgradability.

Bottom Line:   
I cannot fault this unit in any area. I was initially sceptical of moving away from Yamaha, having always been happy with their processing. But, this unit not only blows the Yamaha away in terms of musicality, but also with regard to its reproduction of digital movie formats. I personally am using it together with the full KEF reference THX speaker package. This amp controls these speakers beautifully. The bass now has seemless integration within the system, yet has lost none of its presence, a very surreal experience when first sampled. I personally opted for the black version, and its finish is superb, not truely black, almost graphite, and far from dull. I now experience true hi-fi music, and true auditorium cinema. Do not demo this unit unless in a position to buy.......you will never again be satisfied with your yamaha once you have tasted the denon!!!!!!!!

Bottom Line:   
This is simply the most addictive amp I've ever owned. It sounds great
and has plenty of muscles. Been using it for 10 months now -
never thought twice about this buy.

One of the features I like the best is it's ability to remember which
mode to be in for each input device. If I want to listen to DVD, just
select it and the amp goes THX... select tuner and it's automatically
back in stereo.

The sound - you just have to listen to it!

It goes in both black and gold.
