"Very disappointed"1.0 starson by omarbec
Pros: Many features
Cons: Very Expensive and unreliable
Summary: I puchased this receiver and returned it the following day. Soon after completing all the necessary setup, suddenly it began to shutdown by itself and continued to do that every 5 minutes, the longer I was able to keep this receiver running was 25 min. After carefully checking all my wires and connections I called Denon, they advised me to disconnect everything and perform a microprocessor reset routine. I did everything and the rceiver continued to constantly shutdown by itself. I was offered an exchange for a new one but decided against it, I just don't trust it anymore. To much money for an unreliable receiver.Updated
I wrote an opinion based on the first AVR-5308CI I bought and was defective apparently with a bad heat sensor. After cooling down a little, I decided to accept an exchange for a new unit. Now, that is what I expected from Denon in the first place, a GREAT Receiver in every aspect. My new receiver has turned my home theater system into a real cinema house, I'm not planning to go the movies and pay those high prices anymore, I can enjoy great performance at home.
