Summary Purchased this AV Receiver after much research and am blown away by the way quality of it and it's ease of use. We were going to purchase a much more expensive model, but this one had good reviews and actually did everything we needed.
It was wired up and working within 30 minutes of unpacking. I didn't need the on screen setup wizard but for those who do, it's excellent and well put together.
The Audyssey auto speaker setup works really well and is very easy to use. It found a sync problem but I ran it a 2nd time and it worked fine. Hooked up to our existing Jamo speakers and sub woofer it sounds fantastic, far better and 'cleaner' sound than our old Jamo AV Receiver.
The only screen display, remote, and Android app are brilliant, all allowing you to easily control the receiver. The Android app allows more control of the Receiver than the standard remote control. We have Virgin Media box, home theatre PC and streaming audio over network (via uPNP using Mediamonkey software) working without a hitch.
For those with very large rooms - you may want a little more power. But for a 'standard' sized modern living room this model is ample.

All in all, very impressed and pleased we chose this model. Denon have always been known for quality products and this one does not disappoint!
